My IQ

by Unknown

We have to take an IQ test at school... my average was 147!!! I'm a genius!


However, I was 16 then. Now I'm 37 my average IQ level is 129, does this mean that as you get older, your IQ level decreases?

Martin,

You are right. The IQ should increase with age. The article you have referred is contradicting the previous conclusions of the psychologists.

IQ Test Scales Vary - And People Can Get Smarter!
by: Martin

Hello, Saqib.

I've never seen any evidence that IQ test scores can decline (unless someone becomes senile or has a head injury.)

But test scales do vary -- you have to know what kind of tests and how to compare the scores.

But... new research shows that people can get smarter with specific, focused training.

Decline in IQ Scores
by: Saqib-Admin

Increase in age is considered one of the factors for low IQ scoring. However, there are other reasons too. Repetition may offend some of my psychologist friends. You may go through different web pages of this site on IQ tests. Briefly, other factors include your test taking environment, quality of the test, status of mind, version of the test, standardization process, validity process and so on. But your age is not the age where intellectual functioning should go down. You are as genius as you were at your school.
