Even without getting into their specific deficiencies, IQ tests are immediately dismissible for the simple reason that they don't even define what they're measuring. Intelligence is a vague concept.

The creator of IQ tests himself insisted that they should not be used in the way they're often used today:

Quote:
However, Binet himself cautioned against misuse of the scale or misunderstanding of its implications. According to Binet, the scale was designed with a single purpose in mind; it was to serve as a guide to identify children in the schools who required special education. Its intention was not to be used as “a general device for ranking all pupils according to mental worth.” Binet also noted that “the scale, properly speaking, does not permit the measure of intelligence, because intellectual qualities are not superposable, and therefore cannot be measured as linear surfaces are measured.”

I think it's biasing. People with high scores are more likely to report them. I know what mine is, but I don't bother telling people, cause I think it's kind of silly.

May not be entirely inaccurate.

Triple Nines are a joke, I'm part of the Mega Society. One a million, *****. Suck it.

Also, I qualified for admission into Triple Nine when I was 16 years old. Mensa? When I was in 8th grade. Protip: nobody really cares.

I'm lying about being part of the Mega Society.
