IQ test  JUN 02 1999

I took this IQ test and scored quite high. 155 as a matter of fact...which, according to the chart on their site, puts me at some sort of uber-genius level, even if it was just a quick test (your reported IQ is + or - 5 points away from your actual IQ).

I don't buy it. I know I'm not an idiot, but 155 seems a little high. I think I'm just good at taking tests...and this test wasn't particularly clever. The ACT, SAT and GRE tests were much more challenging. I realize IQ tests and standardized tests measure different things, but I find it easier to believe I'm in the top 5% of the test takers rather than in the top 0.5%...that's a whole magnitude of order difference.
