Just did a Mensa short-test

Discussion in 'Off Topic' started by Hampus Andersson, Apr 24, 2012.

  1. I read about 50% of Mensa members was unemployed and went to read more about that but eventually stumbled on to Mensa´s swedish homepage and noticed you could do a short test to see where about you are.

    You can try it yourself here, it´s pretty easy i have to say,
    http://www.mensa.se/provtest

    Just click on the "Till Testet!" below. You don´t need to know swedish either.
    You get 10 minutes to answer 24 "questions".

    To my surprise i got IQ 126 or more according to the test.

    I thought it was relatively easy so i´m wondering if someone could do it here and get the same results.

    I´m a bit skeptic as i think the chance of making mistakes is bigger with even more questions.

    Real MENSA test is 45 questions in 20 minutes.
     
  2. I got 126 as well! Must have got the same number right i suppose lol.

    When I was a kid, I had to do some of these tests and I used to get in a similar range, however I think my brain has rotted a touch since then so this figure is probably a bit inflated for me :p

  3. Seems like a very easy test then :)

    Not saying you are not that smart but it seems that because we both got 126, or more that it´s a relatively straight forward test.

    Bummer, i was smart for a day :p

    I also ende up on 126 or more. It was very repetetive once you understood how it was buildt, I guess the real Mensa-test is a bit more diverse and thus a bit more difficult :)
     
  5. Yea it has to be, otherwise we are three newly discovered geniuses :p

    I will probably apply for a test just to see where i´m at :)
     
  6. Hey I have no doubt that whilst the test isnt perfectly accurate we all are reasonably smart! We can all read and write after all :p
     
  7. What do you excactly need to do?
     
  8. Answer the questions :)

    It´s all about logics and patterns. Your job is to find out which object is missing from the equation.

    mine is 122 :laugh:
     
  10. To bad :) You could have joined our super-exclusive club in which me, Josh and Roy have created with our brilliant minds :p
     
  11. Remember that tv test we took some years ago? ;)
    I got the same result as i got back then ;) 122
     
  12. I emailed Mensa and he said that what you get in that test is largely what you will get in a proper Mensa test.
    plus or minus a few IQ i guess.

    Will definitely do the real test now :)

  14. Dude remember 100 is average. So anything above that is above average :)

    Funny because "mensa" is slang word for "silly woman" in México :D

  19. Mmm, I got 119 as well. A bit below what I expected, but question 7 didn't end up loading for me, so I guess I missed out on some extra scoring.

    Still, I'm above average, so I shouldn't be so unhappy about it. :)
     
  20. I remember having done something similar a while back... I got 125 or so while listening to Avenged Sevenfold :D
