    What is the correlation between age and IQ? At what age does a person reach optimum IQ? I am 15 years old and my IQ is 138, how does that compare with people in my age group?

    Thanks

    At your age, the score bodes well, that's all. Better test at maturity. Age 12, I was tested, encouraged to join Mensa... yet today my mind is a blunt instrument. You could say people enjoy "optimum" IQ at a young age... what does that mean?

    For non-adults, IQ is supposed to be correlated to intelligence-age. That is, if you're 10 with an IQ of 120, that equates to the intelligence of a 12 year old.

    Once you're an adult, it is supposed to be correlated to your peer group/cohort whatever.

    Speed of reaction tends to diminish with age and therefore IQ scores should show a gradual decline but...

    Knowledge and experiece tend to increase with age, including experience of doing IQ-style tests so...

    In many cases these can balance out.

    "Intelligence" is a man made label, its definition is arbitrary. I can say Swerlyness is this and that, and then make a SQ Test, a Swerlyness Quotien Test based on my own parameters.

    I would not dwell on it. :wink:

    Age: Your ability to learn is very high from the moment you are born but you start knowing nothing and have to learn just about everything. You learn to create the mental illusion we perceive as sight, you learn that the strange things moving around are your hands , that the kid in front of you is yourself(mirror), etc. Your brain is fully developped around the age of 24, at that point you have the tools required for jugement and afterwards you still learn about life the world and so on. The more food for thought, stimulus, concepts and experiences you are exposed to the more you learn. A clone of Einstein put in a dark box and intraveinoulsy fed from birth would at age 25 (if he survived), probably be functionally blind, unable to walk or talk, and could 'potentially' never reach the functionality levels of an average person, for the rest of his life .

    IQ:
    intelligence quotient
    devide intelligent age as determined by a standardized test by cronological age
    for each year you live your devisor increases

    chose a random number and devide by your age as you get older the result gets smaller.
    -----
    Quit while you're ahead?
    Or
    Keep broadening your knowledge base exponentially
    and hold off the inevitable
    for a few years

    or
    take it with a grain of salt and consider it a milestone on a very long journey of your mind
    smile
    and move on

    IQ tests are useless imo for measuring how smart someone really is.

    Wise
    Perceptive
    Good at solving logical problems
    Good at seeing similarities in things
    Deep philosophical understanding of the world

    List goes on...

    BUT - be bad at math and abit slow in the reaction department and your result in IQ tests are likely to fall hard. The problem with IQ tests is that they are using too many math related problems and are often timed. Meaning that: for how smart a person is overall - an IQ test doesent mean shit. The IQ tests should in most cases (not all) be renamed "Timed math solving test".

    Then giving a person a problem, and a pensil and a piece of paper.... and 30 minuts, to come up with a solution to a problem. Something silly like..

    - You are on an island, you have only basic tools at your possession. This island is within a minefield, and all that approaches you are small boats that will get decimated by the mines. You can't escape, nor communicate in the language as of the boats that pass by, and if you would simply call out for help they would approach and blow the mines. How do you get off the island?
    The past teaches, the present watches and the future learns.

    Though religion is a concept that simply can not be ignored. The fact that a deity could stand idly by when one part of his creation slaughters another part, simply for his namesake, is a mystery i doubt theologist would dare touch.

    I don't go a lot on I.Q tests but they can tell some things about some of a persons mental abilities.

    I have always assumed there is a formular they take your test result and your age into account and gives you your I.Q... for example if a 25 answered 75 out of one hundred questions right in 30 minutes and a 76 year old answered 75% correct in 30 minutes... then the 76 year old would have a higher I.Q as he is so much older... Is that correct anybody?

    No. ?4U. I'm 78. In your proposition, ( Poste 11 ), the 76 year old has had the opportunity to experience the questions before, in one form or another. Hs had time to see the correct answers. Sohe scores reasonably well. The longer you experience information you take on board more understanding. Women are no longer a mystery to an old man of 78. But to an 25 year old theres still a certain curiosity and mystery. My curiosity these days is centered on Curiosity. westwind.

    Really westwind? do women really become transparent to us once we reach a certain age? wow. amazing thought.

    I agree with what you say there, and thats another failing of the I.Q test is that people can practice and improve there scores each time...

    So to be clear, there is no formula/equation which takes age into account when giving a quotant of somebodies intelligence? If no, why do they ask for your age when you take an I.Q test?

    Four Q4U. Innormal circumstances aged people can take forever sharpening their lead pencils before starting the Test. The lead keeps breaking. Personally I was never asked to do an IQ Test. """ We haven't got all day to stuff about westwind "" This was the answer I usally received. westwind.
