Chronicle living here and last time I talked about three different techniques for increasing your IQ and today we’ll be learning on how to take an IQ test and at the end compare between the free versions and the paid versions. Alright! It is important to first know what an IQ test is and how it works! So an IQ test is commonly known as intelligent quotient test which was invented in 1904 and it is often regarded as the most objective and accurate method of determining intelligence.
You probably know an average IQ is in between 90-110.
Einstein’s IQ was a hundred sixty to a hundred ninety Perhaps you didn’t know but Leonardo Da Vinci’s IQ was thought to be possibly a hundred eighty to one hundred ninety! Gary Kasparov has an IQ of 194 but there’s even more higher accusin that with Christopher Hirata that scored two hundred and twenty five! Just to add five more to that and we got Terence Tao that scored two hundred and thirty! Quite amazing but however keep in mind an IQ is not the be-all end-all of a person’s potential in life. That is because an IQ test fails to measure things such as musical talent and a bunch of other abilities that may lead one to many different successes in life. So an IQ score on an IQ test is just there to give you an estimated indication of the ability that you possess to think, reason, solve problems, which can often be useful in many phases of your life. There are some factors that are calculated when measuring your intelligent quotient like your age divided by the chronological age multiplied by ten.
How the test will work it will give you a series of questions in multiple fields.
There are some IQ tests that can gauge personal cognitive abilities and show you your strengths and weaknesses. So after all that is done you’ll probably get an IQ score that is a standardized way of comparing with the majority of people in the same age group that you are in. A score of a hundred means that compared to these people in your general age group, you have basically an average intelligence. Most psychologists would say that scoring in the range of 90 to 110 is about normal range for intelligence. Also you should know actual IQ scores may vary plus or minus five points since it’s very difficult to get an IQ score with a hundred percent complete accuracy. That is because there’s many outside factors that may have an impact on your performance such as you’re not feeling well at the time of taking the test or perhaps you are distracted by something on that particular day. So these things may affect your score therefore it’s always a good idea to take several tests on different times to get an average representation.
IQ test that you could take which is commonly called Mensa.
This brings to my next point what’s the difference between the free version that you could find online and the paid ones. Well unauthorized tests that can be commonly googled are usually free but they’re highly inaccurate. Most will give you an inflated or randomized score which can be quite meaningless. What seems to be one of the best ways to get a high quality and most trusted test is to go to a licensed psychologist which can either give you the test or direct you to an official testing center. The only downfall of going to a psychologist is psychologists tests can range significantly in duration and depending on the rates of the psychologist it could be as low as two hundred and forty dollars and as high as eight hundred dollars so just for a single report that’s how much you have to pay. Sooooo I know that most people would rather not spend that hefty amount so the good news is there’s an affordable IQ test that you could take which is commonly called Mensa. This testing is the cheapest route perhaps one of the best to go for.
What’s even cool is Tai Lopez states that he’s part of Mensa.
The Mensa IQ test is considered one of the most accurate IQ measurements as well as the most affordable. The test is administered at set times during the year and cost about forty dollars. And generally the Mensa assessment takes about two hours. You could actually try out their workout quiz that you could get a good feel of how the test might be but keep in mind this isn’t an IQ test so don’t expect to get a real result from this workout quiz and let’s say you actually go there you take the test and you score really high. You could be publicly recognized as a known member who attained a score within the upper 2% of the general population. What’s even cool is Tai Lopez states that he’s part of Mensa. All right like I said remember this don’t equate your IQ with your potential, IQ test only measures verbal and academic potential.
View your IQ test as a facet of your ability not your full reflection.
Intelligence comes in many other facets such as social or artistic which cannot be measured by an IQ test. View your IQ test as a facet of your ability not your full reflection. It could help in many ways but it is not the only way so if you’re worried about having a low IQ and you want to get better actually in school or somehow, than yes a higher IQ.
