    I'm always skeptical about IQ tests, but I did the one last night on 'Test the Nation'.
    Scored 55 out of 72, which means I have an IQ of 109, whatever that means.

    if you missed the show, you can still do the test from wednesday at:
    Test the nation

    So whats your IQ? :)

    I scored 46 right But considering it was for 18 year olds and over I dont think the iq would be exact!

    IQ tests are fairly subjective. I've done a few of the Readers Digest ones in the past and scored fairly dismally (sp?)

    Night time is not a good time to do them for most people if they've had a hard day at work and so on.

    For what it's worth, I did the test and botched a couple of the easy maths questions (ARRRRGHHH!!!)

    58/72 = IQ 117. (BTW That's for the "semi-old" age group)

    I liked Russell Brown's Hard News comment today;

    And no, I didn't watch any of Test The Nation last night. How exactly can a programme claim to measure the national IQ when its sample is a bunch of people with nothing better to do than waste three solid hours watching ultimately meaningless infotainment? That's skewing things down a bit, don't you think?

    I missed the first 12 questions but got 49/60 of the 60 Q's I attempted. Came out at 100 for 49 for my age group.

    Average, but I might go back and do the first 12 Q's on thw web site.

    I agree jp.

    The whole damn thing could've been done in half an hour.

    I ran thru the test the other night and ended up with a total of 123...

    I think I'm slipping a bit. :p

    I'm not complaining - I got 117, which was far superior to anyone of the 'intellectuals' I did it with, people who ironically in their sixth and seventh years of degrees and always professing their mental superiority to everyone.

    I don't think the brainboxes enjoy being beaten in the stakes by someone who confesses continually to not being the sharpest knife in the drawer.

    I guess my witty banter, sadistic charm and general dishevellment must count for something.

    :D
