IQ Tests

I've taken a couple of IQ tests online, and though they say they're scientifically accurate, sometimes I wonder. I do find that I always score between 128 and 140, though. A difference of 12 points between 4 different tests isn't too bad. I guess if they're all inaccurate, at least they're inaccurate together.

Congratulations, Jacob!
Your IQ score is 135

This number is the result of a formula based on how many questions you answered correctly on Emode's Classic IQ test. Your IQ score is scientifically accurate; to read more about the science behind our IQ test, click here.

During the test, you answered four different types of questions — mathematical, visual-spatial, linguistic and logical. We were able to analyze how you did on each set of those questions, which reveals the way your brain uniquely works.

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 a 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.

That bit about the Facts Curator is really interesting, I do have lots of weird little facts in my head, including PI to a lot of digits (3.14159265358979323).

Today I talked to our company accountant and adjusted my W4 claim to 4 (instead of 1) to try to fix my excessive tax refund problem. Not that getting a chunk of money is bad, but giving the government a free loan is.
