Owwwwwww! My head hurts! I just took this quiz workout to see if I could make it into the Mensa International. If you don't know what Mensa is, here is a short description of who they are from my favorite site Wikipedia:

"Mensa is the largest, oldest and best known high-IQ society in the world.[1][2][3] It is a non-profit organization open to people who score at the 98th percentile or higher on a standardized, supervised intelligence test.[4][5] Mensa is formally composed of national groups and the umbrella organization Mensa International."

If a 2 year old from Britain (Elise Tan Roberts) could get in, why not me, right? HA!!! Proved myself wrong. I know. I know. She probably took a test for kids to test her IQ.

Try this quiz out and see if you could possibly get in Mensa. The quiz is suppose to be timed for 30 minutes, there are 30 questions, and you will probably need silence to do this one.

Leave your score, the comment that came with your score, and your personal thoughts. Remember... no cheating!

I scored 23 out of 30. The comment left was, "That is a very good score—you would have a good chance of passing the Mensa test." YAHOOOOO!!! Honestly I probably wouldn't because I know lots and lots of people much smarter than myself. I even dated a "verified child genius" when I was in high school. There is no way shape or form I'm even remotely as smart as my ex.

I'll make husband take the test tomorrow too. Let's see who is the brains of the household.

Is there another one we can take when we're wide awake? Here's what my score/comment was - " Your score was 25 out of 30. That is an excellent score—you would have a very strong chance of passing the Mensa test and joining Mensa."

I don't think so off of that site. I'm sure there are tons of Mensa quizzes on the internet though. I just opened a link to the first one I saw when I searched for them on yahoo.

I'll have to do that one when I'm awake tomorrow. But I did take a Mensa pre-test once a long time ago (I'm sure similar to this but no internet then) and passed it. Never was interested though. Somehow I picture a bunch of intelligent people standing around together for the sake of being intelligent.

LOL. That's what I was thinking too Erimess. A bunch of real smarty pants mocking others and playing with word games I wouldn't understand. :) I just like taking quizzes especially IQ tests.

Your score was 26 out of 30. That is an excellent score—you would have a very strong chance of passing the Mensa test and joining Mensa.

Husband took the quiz. He got 21 out of 30. He was quite upset with his score and claimed the quiz was dumb.

Well, I officially ended up with a 25. But I had another one correct, but I had eye surgery recently and get some reading issues, especially with numbers - so I thought all the answers had decimals. And thought huh? But I did get that one. I'm ashamed that I screwed up the Jane/Sam age thing. I'm good at those, and made the mistake I tell my students not to. (Was watching the clock and rushed something I knew how to do.) But good story for my students - they seem amused to find out I'm human. LOL. In the end, biggest problem was those scrambled letter things. I hate those and gave up on them. Josephine, in a way hubby is right. Certain questions test an ability, like the picture puzzles, but some test outright *knowledge* like knowing square roots - that's not the same as intelligence.

True true. Ask my husband about anything and he can answer it. I figured he would blow the test away because I know he's a smart. He doesn't like the word questions too. I for one love them and I can't do the Jane/Sam questions or the time questions. I read those and draw a blank. Reread them and think "HUH?!?!?!"

I just found another thing wrong with it. #21 - I got it right, but not using their reasoning. I had a different reasoning, which is totally correct. Some things can be interpreted different ways and all be correct. This is one reason my brother (who is extremely intelligent) hates tests like this.
