IQ is a bunch of garbage. There is no test you can take on paper or on a monitor that accurately determines how strong your brain is. IQ tests measure knowledge in 3 areas of your brain, but to precisely see what your brain is capable of, there needs to be a test that can test fully all eight (which was determined by psychologists, may increase as research increases) part of a human's intelligence. Even brain scans can't do this. The human brain is the least understood thing in our bodies.

Another fun fact:
Alfred Binet made this test in the early 1900s to help elementary school kids do better in their classes. Now it is used (and used incorrectly) as a screening device.

It's just silly that people have to say "Oh, my IQ is really high." Cool, but even if it is, it doesn't mean a whole lot. The test is broken so to speak.

I test my brain by beating my head on a wall. Still works pretty well.

the test still works as a comparative level. saying "oh i have an IQ of 150" doesn't mean anything except that your brain is more powerful than someone with an IQ of 50
