About IQ Tests

People are surprisingly similar to each other. We all eat, drink, think, plan, and seek our goals. Yet, within these broad similarities are differences - uniqueness among individuals. Some are more artistic than others. Some might even be more intelligent than others.

Psychologists have long been intrigued by individual differences, and they have developed an array of tests to try to measure these differences. When they focus their attention on the way people differ in their ability to think, reason, and remember, then they raise questions about intelligence.

A General Intelligence Quotient Score (IQ Score) is a statistically derived number which indicates relative and comparative abilities that can be used to obtain academic skills and knowledge. You have hundreds of specific mental abilities. Some of these abilities can be measured accurately. Some of these measurements can be reliable predictors of an individual's academic achievements.

It is very important to always keep in mind that an IQ test does not measure most kinds of human abilities such as musical talent, artistic talent, emotional stability, physical coordination, or spiritual level. A higher IQ score is not a guarantee that an individual will achieve happiness, maintain sanity, or obtain spiritual growth. A lower IQ score does not mean that an individual will be unsuccessful financially, emotionally, or morally.


Listed below are some internet resources for those interested in taking free IQ tests. These tests are designed to give you some idea how "intelligent" you are in the traditional sense. Some give you a "real" IQ score while others just give a percentage or point score. Take these tests for fun, and don't take the results to heart.

There is no time limit here. The test is relatively easy with options stated for each question. The scoring pattern is quite thorough and interesting.
This is a time-bound test, set in a true or false format. The catch is that having taken the test and obtained the score, the Intelligence Report must be paid for. The test is rather difficult.
