The Classic IQ Test
What's Your IQ?
Congratulations, Angie! Your IQ score is 133
IQ stands for intelligence quotient. It's a score that tells how smart or bright a person is, compared to other people.
The average IQ is 100.
Scores above 100 indicate a higher-than-average IQ.
Scores below 100 indicate a lower-than-average IQ.
Scores can range any amount below or above 100, but on average, they usually don't go much below 50, or above 150.
Half of the population have IQ’s of between 90 and 110.
25% have higher IQ’s
25% have lower IQ’s
An IQ of 120 therefore implies that the testee is brighter than
about 91% of the population, while 130 puts a person ahead of 98% of people. A person with an IQ of 80 is brighter than only 9% of people, and only a few score less than 60.
This number is based on a scientific formula that compares how many questions you answered correctly on the Classic IQ Test relative to others.
