Is an IQ of 129 good for a 19-year-old boy?
That's an excellent I.Q.! Anyone who has the I.Q. of 129 is considered Genius, But for a 19 year old that is very amazing. You're a very intelligent person. hate to bring you down but i actually think that 129 is just under genius, at "above average." * Over 140 - Genius or near genius * 120 - 140 - Very superior intelligence * 110 - 119 - Superior intelligence * 90 - 109 - Normal or average intelligence * 80 - 89 - Dullness * 70 - 79 - Borderline deficiency * Under 70 - Definite feeble-mindedness IQ scores are also 'age-weighted,' (IQ tests ask for your chronological age at the outset of the test), so that whether your score is 129 at 19 years of age or at 99 years of age, you are considered (by this scale) to be of 'very superior intelligence' (i.e. within your age group). By definition, any score of 110 or higher is considered to denote 'above average' intelligence, which logically includes 'genius' (140+). Some scholars have challenged the notion that an IQ score is a useful or valid representation of intelligence. Still, many employers and colleges utilize similar tests in determining both who to recruit and how to treat people in terms of salaries, career-routes, and so on. IQ testing often takes place alongside psychometric tests, such as Myers-Briggs.
129 is a good IQ for a 12 yr old. However, the average 25 yr old's IQ is 100. So you're liable to do very well! ~ Your just bragging, you'll know Intelligence Quotient doesn't change no matter how old you are. Yes, 129 IQ is good for your age. That means you have a 97th percentile and can get in Talented and Gifted program. Since, your asking this you must've taken a internet IQ…
It depends on the particular definition for IQ used, however usually IQ is a measure of intelligence with a mean (average) score of 100 and standard deviation of 15, with a normal distribution. A person with a score of 129 scores higher than roughly 97% of other people, and is considered to be pretty smart (or pretty good at taking IQ tests, however you want to look at it).
Yes it is! congratulations on being so smart! I am a twelve year old girl and I took a silly on-line test and it says my IQ is 112, I am rather intelligent and i went on handy-dandy google and it says that is above average, so you are a very smart and intellectual young man! Kudos! This is wrong. You are not smart.
