    You should know how bright you are if you are honest with yourself. How much do you know? In how many subjects are you knowledgeable?

    IQ tests, in my opinion, are biased toward mathematics and logic based knowledge. I think that mathematics are useful but that labelling people "geniuses" just because they excell at math is unfounded. Not all Physicists, for example, are Einsteins. Just because some Physicists and Chemists are geniuses doesn't mean that all of them are geniuses. Understanding complex equations is only part of the intelligence equation.

    Most Bio majors I know are of above average intelligence. However, many excell only in Biology. I admire people more when they have at least a basic understanding of many subjects. I admire my roommate because despite his autism, which led people to believe he was below average intelligence, he studied on his own and learned about History, Chemistry and Philosophy. He did poorly on his first IQ test because he had trouble concentrating. I believe he scored an 80 or 90. He retook it in a year or so to obtain a 125. He is currently majoring in Chemistry (he took Orgo I last semester and got a C) and already has a Associate's in Nanotech.

    You will see an incredibly accurate intelligence test just by visiting this site:

    http://www.best-iq-test.com

    A score you obtain with the IQ test is worthless if the result is not compared with men or women your actual age. Depending on new tests taken by individuals how old you are, we measure instantly all of the intelligence quotient scores to help make the assessment of your own intelligence quotient incredibly accurate. In addition, we determine a rating according to the clinically recognized Wechsler Scale where 100 is the average IQ.

    I am also interested in such type of tests. I recommend this one - *Removed - KALSTER Free IQ test and online IQ test preparation puzzles[/url] It shows you the score and you don't need to give your phone number or pay to see your score. I think that IQ tests are good for us because there is always something new you can learn from them. They are not just showing a result which to compare with your friends but they are giving you a well spent time and showing you what type of information you are missing in your self-education. If people really want to learn something new or how to improve their abilities they won't be so obsessed only with the IQ score they've gained.

    You're confusing intelligence with knowledge. They are not the same thing.

    Have you ever actually taken one. I did and there was little to no math in it.

    I took an IQ test and got a score of 124. That means that I have Very superior intelligence and am referred to as being gifted. Having an IQ of 124 places me in the 93.3 th percentile, which means I’m more intelligent than 93.3 percent of the the world's polpulation.

    And only 16 IQ points away from being a genius.
