Sounds about right to me.We also compared your answers with others who have taken the test, and according to the sorts of questions you got correct, we can tell your Intellectual Type is an Inventive Inquisitor.
You have the unusual distinction of being equally good at math and verbal skills. This means you are a creative thinker and are uniquely good at teaching others through experiences. You are also a great improviser and very good at handling change.
It means you are a Visionary Instigating Self-Hating Intellectual.Budgie said:I got a 133, but I'm not going to pay to find out what it means. Does anyone have an idea?
Wow, everything I've ever aspired to be. So I'm a mix of:mendelman said:It means you are a Visionary Instigating Self-Hating Intellectual.
You are adept at expressing yourself through the use of late 19th and early 20th century Russian literary metaphors and 80's metal lyrics. You can successfully delineate the logic of philosophical discourse, while drowning your fears and doubts in as much beer as possible. Also, you are very good at handling change. ;-)
I think they make that assumption based on what you miss. Not how many you miss...SlaveToTheGrind said:Mastiff and BEK scored 135 and 122, respectively. Yet both are an "Insightful Linguist". I scored a 127 and labled an "Inspired Inventor". Huh? Not that it matters.
Have you killed any kittens?Mastiff said:Anyone know the scale on this thing?
Not to sound like a blowhard, but 135 on a 200 scale is low for me. Hell, I'd shoot around 180-185 in high school! I know I haven't killed THAT many brain cells...
Yup, no matter how profoundly gifted a kid is at age 7 or 8 you just can't expect the kid to figure out problems like the sequence one:Michele Zone said:Profoundly gifted kids have to be assessed by age 7 or 8 and have to be assessed by a qualified assessor -- not merely 'take a test' -- in order to have any hope of getting an accurate assessment. Otherwise, their score is basically guaranteed to err on the low side.
Oops! Sorry. "Profoundly Gifted" is a term generally used to indicate an IQ of either 180 and above or 200 and above. It has no hard and fast definition. I chose it because of the IQ score Mastiff quoted from when he was in high school. My apologies. I shouldn't have used the term.SkeLeton said:Yup, no matter how profoundly gifted a kid is at age 7 or 8 you just can't expect the kid to figure out problems like the sequence one:
144 121 100 81 64 ....
It took me a while to see the connection between them, but after I saw the connection, the answer was a piece of cake... but 7 year old kids don't know exponential numbers... unless they have an IQ of like 190....
I didn't even bother to go look at the actual test because it is a lot worse than what you indicate.B'lieve said:One, "IQ tests", especially past the early elementary years (7 or 8 on, as MZ said) test learned knowledge as much as or more than the inborn limits of intelligence.
I didn't, but I didn't know how most people feel about their first name....I mean Michael, John, and Matthew must be safe having been the in the top ten SS name list for decades now. Either way I think the whole thing is crap. Just for fun folks, real tests are administered by a professional.B'lieve said:Two, it asks for personal info, like first and last name, interests, email address--and money. It's either a scam for the money, or a hook/lure to get info for spamming/advertising purposes, or both. ludes98 has the right idea (I wouldn't use real name either.)
And BBC -- this means it is British? Let's see, most of us are American. The non-Americans generally indicated that they were surprised at their low scores on the emode test. Can you say "Cultural bias"? I *bet* most American scores would drop if they took a non-American test -- a point I already covered. So what?jzt83 said:BBC National Test
The emode test is bogus. They just want to make you feel smart so that you shell out cash to discover what your score means. Take the BBC Nation IQ Test for a more accurate measure of your actual IQ. Before claiming the title of genius, take the BBC test as your IQ will magically drop 10-15 points.
You'll never get your citizenship until you spell colour and neighbourhood the right way.nerudite said:My score went down slightly (but not that much) on the BBC test. It is difficult, as I didn't see one of the anagrams right off because it had anglicized spelling instead of the American version.
Oh god... I do that all the time (without even knowing I do it). In agenda reports I type neighbourhood half the time and neighborhood the other half. Same thing with colour. The word that got me in the BBC test was aeroplane. I still figured it out in time though...donk said:You'll never get your citizenship until you spell colour and neighbourhood the right way.
To Test or Not To Test -- that is the question. It comes up regularly in gifted forums, particularly amongst gifted homeschoolers. If your kid is in school, there are obvious benefits to having proof that the kid qualifies for gifted programs and other accomodation. But it is not so clear cut if you homeschool and many people do not want their kid labeled (and with good reason). Some guy -- who went to Harvard and also has a Ph.D. (although I don't know if it is from Harvard) and writes books aimed at homeschoolers and is worshipped like a rock star by some of this crowd -- always vehemently argues against testing.SkeLeton said:Anyways, MZ is right... these tests should be for fun only... and even the professional tests aren't that trustful,
