  1. Adm,
    15 hits is equal to an IQ of 129 or 130 or what?

    I appreciate your work, thank you for all that good stuff that you made for us!

    Best regards from Brasil!

    • It is just a placement test.
      You must take at least 3 valid IQ Tests to get a good estimation.

  2. Hi, this tests are quite cool, I have been thrilled to do the newer ones, I have already a profile and a calculated IQ of 140, however there is a suggestion I would dare to make: the calculation of the average score by doing three valid tests should be weighted with the ceiling of each test, here are the reasons why:
    1) The lower the ceiling, the higher the probability of being under your potential
    2) The time factor could generate a discrepancy because of the ceilings of the tests: 170 (Dominoes) 137 ( Analytic A)
    3) Some experts argue that the higher score is the more valid one, no one can have a great score consistently only by luck, however the underperforming is highly common

    Now one question; Why is Matrix C « much much » harder than the Dominoes test if they intend to measure almost the same level?.. Dominoes test is validated by Mensa right so its better?

    • Hello,
      My IQ calculation script is already weighted.
      If your score is equal to the ceiling and if there exists another score above it, the first score is not taken into account.
      1/ Correct
      2/ Maybe (not sure)
      3/ Correct !
      If your IQ is above 130, do not lose time with modest IQ tests limited to 145.

      Dominoes test is the best test available on my site (checked with Mensa members).

      Matrix-C is really difficult but I assume you are accustomed to matrices principles :-)
      I consider you can « learn » matrices principles much efficiently than items of type « find the odd-one out ».


      P.S. I am forced to close temporarily the comments because of very bad and repetitive behaviors of a few users…

  3. I do not see how you can possibly claim accuracy on any of these test. How do you explain that the vast majority of these test have an average scorE in the 120s? Are they normed? Have you given the same test to a large amount of people and deduced the corresponding iq to rAw score from there?
    I credit your ability to design interesting and challenging puzzles that serve as a great form of entertainment but I strongly question the validity of these test

    • As already explaind in other comments, the average score of 120 is not that surprising according to multiple attempts and psychological profile of those who like taking challenging tests.
      Tests are normed by correlations with the Dominoes test.
      rem : I recently removed the scoring for Logic-D because there is no strong correlation with other IQ tests.
