That is about average. However, the Intelligence Quotient is only a rough approximation of a person's overall mental abilities, and should not be thought of as a means of measuring one against others. Creativity is not directly proportional to intelligence, and the IQ does not address a person's ability to perceive their own intuition, which is a powerful tool in coping with every day life. People with high IQ's often have difficulty dealing with mundane aspects of life, and many develop some type of mental illness or disability. Being near the center of the range only means that you are less likely to find life depressing, illogical, or mystifying.

(I am answering the question assuming it can fairly be rephrased "How does an IQ of 106 rate/rank on an IQ scale") By definition, an IQ of 100 is "average". Therefore a score of 106 is slightly above average. More specifically, using the WAIS/Stanford Binet definition wherein a standard deviation of 0.25 corresponds to 4 IQ points, an IQ of 106 roughly corresponds to a standard deviation of 0.38/0.39. What all that means is that an IQ of 106 roughly corresponds to a percentile rank within the population of about 65%, or, in other words, a person with an IQ of 106 is "smarter" than 65% of the population. By one accounting, the average college graduate has an IQ of 116 (and a percentile rank of 84%).

absolutely, IQ is not a total determinant factor on how smart you are.

It is neither good nor bad, it is average. Anything score between about from 90 to 110 is average.

IQ (intelligence quotient) is defined as mental age divided by actual age multiplied by 100. Therefor, an IQ of 100 indicates that you're intelligence roughly matches what is considered average for your age. IQ rarely changes much with age. Therefor, on IQ of 106 means that for your entire life, your intelligence (as ranked by an IQ test) will be at or slightly above average.

IQ tests take your age into account so IQ usually does not change as you age. An IQ of 106 is considered "average". However remember that IQ tests only measure one area of intelligence: Problem Solving/Logical Reasoning. There are eight areas of intelligence so if you have an average IQ, you can still be considered highly intelligent. Also, IQ tests can be inaccurate. Albert Einstein had an IQ of 160, and genius level is 150. If you really think about it, it's not that high considering how bright Albert Einstein really was.

I think it's very good. I'm told I'm very smart, because I'm 13 and my IQ is 156.

It's considered "average" but IQ is widely regarded as a rather unimportant number, so don't worry about it too much.

IQ is standardized at 100 which is average/normal. 109 is above average but not a lot. Age does not matter because IQ does not change with age or gender.
