IQ tests are supposed to measure innate intelligence, not knowledge, wisdom, or ability. Valid IQ tests use age in the calculation of your score. You IQ is supposed to stay more or less the same throughout life. Also, IQ tests are periodically standardized so that the score of 100 is average. So, the official answer to your question is 100.

When considering the IQ test, normal intelligence or an average level of intelligence is said to lie between 90-100 points. Between 100 and 110 indicates higher intelligence, from 110-120 is extremely high intelligence (about 2 percent of the population), and above 130 implies that the tested individual is of a superb intelligence (about 8 percent of the population). Genius levels are past 140 according to Mensa International.

Your IQ score is independent of your age, so if tested properly, your IQ should remain the same throughout your life.

Anything above about 120 would be exceedingly good for anyone, to directly answer the question.

A high IQ is high no matter what the age. I believe 100 to 120 is normal, 120 to 140 is very smart, 140 to 150 is very VERY smart, 150 and above is genius. no matter how old you are.

What is IQ?

Not every president has taken an IQ test, and in fact, until the modern era, such a test did not exist. Since the results of such tests are confidential, there is no way to know where President Obama ever took one. What we do know is that he graduated from Harvard Law School in the top five percent of his class, and received academic honors, certainly an indication of high intelligence.

IQ is a relative measure, and ideally is defined such that the average IQ for any age is 100. A 12-year-old with an IQ of 100 will know more than a 9-year-old with an IQ of 100, but both of them are exactly average for their age group.
