Emode = Great Time Waster

Emode.com is a great place to waste time. I used it for its IQ test (someone pointed me to it), and ended up doing a dozen tests about myself. Quite an interesting site, but if you want a "detailed" report of yourself, it'll cost ya $15.Emode.com is a great place to waste time.

Oooh, I'm in trouble. (2)

I LOOOOOVE tests like this. I'm really not sure why I like to be compartmentalized like that. But now I'm completely sure that I'll find out everything to know about my IQ, career choices, and the state of my internal goddess...

Where to start...where to start...

IQ is a good starter. One of the longer tests that requires you to think before hitting the radio button.

I took the IQ test, and it rated my IQ at 135. When I took my application IQ exam for Mensa, I got 134. One point difference... that's pretty accurate!

I'm sure it's off. There's no way I've got double digits, much less 70! Wow! I smart is!

So that thing is really good? Is a 135 considered good? I'm just asking because I've never taken one of these before, and I probably could have done better if I hadn't been doing it while doing a few other things too, but I got a 133 and I'm trying to figure out how good that is. (And there were two questions I was just too tired to figure out, but we won't go there b/c I guessed and I might have guessed right.)

134 was good enough to put me in the top 2%, which is the requirement for Mensa.

Some Woman (250267) | more than 12 years ago | (#3961504)

I think "average" is something like 110 or 120. "Really smart" starts at 140, or is it 133? I forget. :)

95% of the population is at 130 or less.

How long was the mensa test? Was thinking of doing that myself sometime.

I seem to recall it being two parts about an hour each...not too bad. I took it at my College. They had an annual testing day. I think they do one every year. It will probibaly be easier to track down a testing site on this day. It was between August and December, but I don't remember exactly when. Try us.mensa.org for details.

When you do become a member (I am sure you will), you get a newsletter and a magazine. There are several special interest groups in Mensa you can associate with. I never did any of that, but it is there if you want it. I mainly did it to see if I could. My membership has expired, but that isn't important to me.

Very close (1)

The Turd Report (527733) | more than 12 years ago | (#3962063)

It ranked me at 134 and the last time I was professionally tested, I was rated at 136. Pretty close.

Something hinky? (2)

gmhowell (26755) | more than 12 years ago | (#3962939)

I got a 135. I'm seeing that almost everyone here got about the same thing. Either:

a. Test is complete BS, and tries to give you a higher/different score than you really earned in order to get you to shell out 15 clams.

b. Somehow, a bunch of people with near identical IQ's read/reply to FK's journal.

Let's have some real fun:

It tagged me: Precision Processor.

What is everyone else?

Re:Something hinky? (1)

FortKnox (169099) | more than 12 years ago | (#3965455)

Ditto. Precision Processor.

I'm a "Visionary Philosopher." I think I like this test. :)

It might be score-based?

Re:Something hinky? (2)

gmhowell (26755) | more than 12 years ago | (#3973022)

I was pretty sure it was score-based. But I was kinda curious how many people reading an FK journal were of the same 'type'.

Re:Something hinky? (1)

Some Woman (250267) | more than 12 years ago | (#3977818)

After thinking about it, I'm reasonabl certain that they just renamed the four types of intellect: Concrete/Abstract Sequential/Random.

I think precision processor corresponds to Concrete Sequential, which is what I would associate with your typical slashdotian. Visionary Philosopher seems to mean Abstract Sequential.
