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.
