Whatever you do, just don't take an online "IQ test".

The only way to take a genuine IQ test is to have it administered to you and scored by a trained psychologist.

The general public is strictly prohibited from having access to genuine IQ tests such as the WISC, WAIS, or the Stanford-Binet. And so if you take a test online or obtain it from anywhere other than a psychologist, then it is guaranteed to be fake and your score will be meaningless.

Online so-called IQ tests generally have built in positive biases to give the test-taker a very high genius-level score, making them feel good about themselves, and encouraging them to part with their email address or credit card details in return for a "full analysis" that is completely made up.

The question was, How do you measure your IQ. Not where do you find an IQ test. Back to the question. 100 is considered average. Over 100 above average. Under 100 below average.

Actually you didn't answer the question either. That is how you compare an IQ to standardised population norms. Measuring a person's IQ is the act of actually conducting the test and what test you are using.

So basically you are saying take an IQ test. Then you say what test you are you using all though you don't mention just what that test is supposed to be.
