I don't believe that all IQ tests are time based, but can't just put together a test assume it will test anything in particular.  How did they validate the IQ test?

Terms like 'genius', 'superior intelligence', 'dullness' is meaningless.  What is the population mean, and the standard deviation those are the issues that matter and those number are conspicuously absent.

There is also no such thing as a 'classic IQ test' there are different tests that have been validated against the general population, but there is no evidence that this is one of them.  The fact that it has been created by PhD's is meaningless there are an awful lot of PhD's out there (some of them can even be bought over the Internet).

DUDE, I SCORED 111 and I was trying hard!! No guessing!! took me forever! That must mean I have a brain and there should be no excuses whatsoever for me to not get it, so what gives !! My Intellectual type is word warrior!! WOO-WHOOOO! What do you know about that! I am not paying them 12.00 to tell me how dumb or smart I am... I know where I am in the pecking order!! Superior intelligence is certainly not it!! Yikes, That might mean I might have to actually think sometimes....LOL JUST KIDDING YOU KNOW!!

Your Intellectual Type is Facts Curator. This means you are highly intelligent and have picked up an impressive and unique collection of facts and figures over the years. You've got a remarkable vocabulary and exceptional math skills which puts you in the same class as brainiacs like Bill Gates. And that's just some of what we know about you from your test results.

"over the years" LOL, Im only 15!

WOW - I am in the presence of greatness!!!  My score was 123.  I'm not so sure 'bout them thare reesults.  It said I scored in the 80th percentile in math.  I don't believe that at all, I can only multiply with a calculator. 

Karen - I'm a word warrior too!!!! YAYYY.  Aren't we clever.

I stopped believing in those tests also, reasons:

I took 5 different tests, all PhD certified, 2 of them with time limit, 3 without
My scores:

No time limit:
152 : Genius
129 : Highly Intelligent
122 : Highly Intelligent

With time limit:
147: Genius
122 : Highly Intelligent

All different tests, yet, you can see variation.
Screw IQ tests! (Yet, Very proud of the results :P)

I'd be very interested in a sociological study of the motivation of those who take aptitude or IQ tests, voluntarily as opposed to qualifying for a job or school.

In my own case I wasn't doing well with the standard measures provided by traditional schooling.  Given an opportunity to write a battery of SATs, I jumped at it.  I did very well and was accepted to university on the strength of the results.  Despite the conventional wisdom of the day, I did prepare for them, apparently successfully.
