My variation in IQ scores over 60 years.

by Andrew Glenn
(St.Paul, Mn)

I am 61 now. I had the second highest IQ score in Central H.S. in St.Paul for the class of '66. That was 149. I checked this year and they said my IQ was 117!


The latter was the NElson test. They recommended I be laborer!

In 1967 I took the Armed Forces test and got the 98th percentile so they hustled me off to Officer's Candidate School. i promptly flunked the test.

I took the Eysenck Self-Administered IQ Test at 40 years old and got 149! Just like High School.I took an extra five minutes to figure out the math section..(which is stretching the rules a bit)...and got a score of 178!

I've taken computerized IQ tests and have gotten scores of 126 and 135.

So my range on IQ tests is 117 to 178. What's that all about?

Maybe I should be falling into man-holes?

Can anyone explain to me what all this mean?

The only IQ tests that I've (remembered having) taken are online ones. The lowest score I've ever gotten, on a so-called professional IQ test, is about 117. The highest is "160+".

This variation has happened over the course of round about 4 years, and the dips and spikes aren't correlated with age. I'm 18 now. I think different types of tests, as well as mood, background noise/distraction, hunger, preoccupation and stress levels and things that may otherwise generally affect your attention span, causing you to swim in or out of focus may have a MASSIVE effect on you and your subsequent scores on a day-to-day basis. Illness, age and other changes that may affect your brain on a longer term will probably also change your results around a bit.

I'm no professional, though!
