What is the average IQ of a 16-year-old girl?
By definition, the average IQ is always 100. IQ scores are always adjusted for age to keep the average at 100, but above age 15(?) intelligence remains static till age 55+. The scores are usually arranged in such a way that half the population has scores in the range 90-110, and 75% in the range 85-115. Obviously, it is possible to devise scoring systems that minimize or maximize differences. This is particularly obvious at the extremes: one can arrange the scores so that 96% of the population is in the range 60-140 or one can spread the same people over the range 50-150, for example.

Answer The average IQ for a person in general, it's not age-specific, is around 100. However, the testing must be done with a standardized test, administered by a train…ed professional, under controlled conditions - all so the results are as accurate and reliable as possible. No internet tests!
IQ, intelligence quotient, relates chronological age to mental age. As such it tends not to change very much over time. An 19-year-old girl is going to have about the same IQ …as she had when she was 18. For any age, the average is the average. An average IQ is an IQ of 100.
The average IQ for an eight year old is around 100, for both girls and boys.
IQ has nothing to do with age. An average IQ is around 100, no matter what age a person is.
The average IQ of anyone at any age is around 100.
Probably around 100. IQ is calculated relative to age, therefore, as one grows older his/her IQ doesn't necessarily increase.
IQ is not dependent on age. Anything over 100 is considered good, 132 (Standford Benet) is Mensa good. However IQ often does not live up to expectations of society. High IQs t…end to have more areas of interest making the advantage mostly useless for monetary advantages. Contrary to popular opinion, unless the individual only has an interest in a narrow field of study he will be happier in a profession that requires a diverse skill set.
The average IQ, by definition, is 100. A proper test will account for age accordingly.
IQ tests are designed to always have an average of 100. So the average IQ for a 13 year old girl is 100.
ideally, an average IQ should be 100 world wide. Your IQ is your mental age (the average age of someone who possesses your intellect) divided by your physical age (your actual… age in years) multiplied by 100. Now if you are 13 and you have the intelligence of an average 13 year old, then the maths is 100(13/13) Which is 13 (mental age) divided by 13 (physical age) multiplied by 100. if your mental age and physical age are the same then your IQ will be 100 because a number divided by the exact same number is equal to 1 (except 0) and 1 x 100 is equal to 100. If your physical age is higher than your mental age then the number you will multiply by 100 will be less that 1. for example if a 13 year old had a mental age of 10 then their IQ would be 10/13 x100. Now a mental age is the average age associated with a score on an IQ test. If she had the score of an average 10 year old, her mental age would be 10. When i was 10 i was said to have an IQ of 160. This is because my test score was that of a 16 year old. 16/10 x 100 is 160. Age does not determine your IQ. Your intellect at a certain age compared to the intellect of others who are the same age determines it. our IQ can change. If you were to get a score when you were 10 then you were to get the same score when you were 11, your IQ would have been higher when you were 10. The more your mental age is larger than your physical age, the smarter you are. The smaller your mental age is than your physical age. The stupider you are. A baby can have a higher IQ than an adult. But the adult can still know 10000 times more than the baby. I hope this explains how the IQ system works.
At least according to theory, the average IQ is 100, no matter the gender or age of a person. That said, it is a complicated topic and there are many ways to look at it. An im…portant basic concept is that IQ theoretically does not change over the lifetime of an individual, assuming normal development and no unusual events/traumas during life that affect intellectual processes. If it is properly measured, you would not expect IQ to go up or down significantly for a given individual over the course of the individual's lifetime.
100, the absolute average IQ; theoretically a person's IQ doesn't change due to education, although it might appear to be higher than it actually is.
No way! Worldwide, the percentage of people who's IQ is above 140 is only a fraction of a percent let alone 163! In fact, the IQ scale is designed so that the average IQ is 10…0. If you tested the whole population, you'd find that the averages are roughly the same regardless of gender, and the tests are modified based on age as well, so the average of a 14 year old girl is 100.
