    IQ tests are bullshit.

    All they do is measaure your ability to solve meaningless, trivial questions.

    Sounds like the rant of a bitter man ;-) Did you get a low score? :-)

    The point is that you apply these abilities that IQ tests measure to problems in your work and everyday life.

    :rolleyes:

    I never done it, purely because they're bullshit.

    I know what the point of them is, but they still don't accurately measure a persons intelligence.

    Oh and just to set the record straight, I've done an official IQ test before (y'know, not the kind on prime-time TV) and scored 161.

    So why did you take the other one? :-)

    So why not take the 'easy peasy' BEEB one and get 70/70? :-)

    How would you suggest you measure someone's intelligence?

    :rolleyes:

    A few of us were asked if we wanted to do it in school, it got us out of class, and we were able to see how well we could solve pointless tasks :p

    Because I've taken one already, and I know my official score. Why would I need to waste my time taking another?

    Simple. Anyone who finishes every post with ':rolleyes:' is retarded.

    If they're bullshit then surely your 'official' score is bullshit too? :)

    That would make more sense.

    I'd say that anyone who has ended a post with a Republican signature is retarded :)

    You are telling us all about your 161 score on the other board though. Why do that if IQ tests are bullshit? :)

    Surely someone that claims to have such a high IQ would notice that I never said that ;)

    To quell any suspicions that the reason for me speaking out against IQ tests, was because I scored poorly in them in the same way that happened in this thread.

    What were you saying then? Everyone should have free speach unless they want to promote Republicanism?

    Try it - I think you'll find you'll be shot down in flames by me, as well as the regulars of the Polotics forum.

    The test last night wasn't meant to be that precise, it's never going to be that good with only 70 questions. Also it was heavily age-dependent, the highest someone of my age could get was 137 (which I did :p ) whereas someone in the oldest age group could get 157.

    If you are at the extremes of the scale then the test wouldn't give you a very realisitic score, I know from two previous tests that my IQ is between about 170-180 but that involved some 300 questions.

    I'm sure this topic came up last time this show was on and it turned out we had some worrlyingly clever people on the site :eek:
