Measurement of someone's intelligence through the administration of an intelligence test
Asked in Physics, IQ, Stephen Hawking
What is Stephen Hawking's IQ?
Although Professor Hawking discounts the value of numerical IQ's, he admitted that his own is likely very high (it has been suggested as 160 or more). He also said that "People who boast about their IQ's are losers". (see link to 2004 interview) ---a possibly dramatized anecdote from Introducing Stephen Hawking (2006)--- Near the end of his term at Oxford and no doubt beginning to feel the effects of ALS, Hawking took a terrible fall down a staircase in the university hall. As...

Where can you take the WAIS IV IQ test for free?
WAIS-IV stands for Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-4th Edition. It a clinician administered test--i.e. it cannot be taken online. The test is only sold to clinicians--licensed psychologists--who are trained to use it. You need to see a psychologist to get it done. Sometimes you can get a free assessment at a university clinic with a Ph.D. program in clinical psychology. However, if you walk in and simply request an IQ test, your request might be declined, just like you might be refused and MRI...

Are men smarter than women?
The fact is that neither gender is any more intellectually gifted than the other. It is true that females perform better at some tasks than males. The reverse is also true. Let's face it there are differences. That's biology, that's genetics, that is the reality of the differences between boys and girls, folks. There is no debate here. There is no argument. For every male that anyone can drag up from history as a representative of the most intelligent, there is a...

Where can you get a professional IQ test?
Psychologists and neuropsychologists give IQ tests as part of the battery of tests they have you do. There are also places like Mensa that administer tests. But there's not really much of a reason for someone to have an IQ test. It doesn't mean much on its own and is pretty much useless in any day-to-day situation. ...

Is an IQ of 135 good for a 19.9 year old?
Everything above 100 is "above average", but in your case, your score is verry, verry high. The actual father of the test, Einstein, just scored as low as 129 ( and that's actually high as well), and later was discided that everyone who scores higher that him would be refered to as : gifted. Also please note that 135 is actually extremely good, and this only is your IQ score if you did the right test. The internet IQ-tests are bad since...

Do most people think people with autism are dumb?
Sadly, it is commonly perceived that people with Autism are not intelligent. This is in fact, not the case and I believe it is our job as Autism advocates to raise awareness about the fact that individuals with Autism can be productive members of society. At a recent conference I attended on work opportunities for adults on the Autism Spectrum, world renowned Autism expert, Susan Bryson, noted that only approximately 25% of people with Autism have an intellectual handicap. She then continued...
Asked in IQ
Are IQ tests really accurate and are their results a reliable indicator of one's true level of intelligence?
Yes They were designed by psychologists and educators, who studied the way mental acuity relates to the potential to learn and solve problems. They are not a measure of eventual achievement or accomplishment, because these require active effort beyond mere logical or computational ability. Persons recording high scores on standardized IQ tests are generally those who find learning new things comparatively easy, sometimes trivially easy. IQ tests also work on measuring how fast someone thinks and their memorization, something that is dependent on how natural...
Asked in US Presidents, IQ, Barack Obama
What is Barack Obama's IQ?
He has not released that information; it should be noted that few presidents have made such scores public. From the information that is available, we know (or can surmise) the following: The average IQ for a college graduate with a bachelor's degree in the U.S. is 115. Barack Obama graduated from Columbia University, so the assumption is he must have had at least an IQ of 115. Barack Obama graduated Magna Cum Laude from Harvard Law School; such academic honors are only awarded to...
How does the average IQ of Norway compare to the average IQ of the rest of the world?
Quite frankly, this is a question that is not possible to answer with current technology. While Norway tested higher in earlier parts of this century the rest of the world has been catching up since 1991. It is suspected that Norway simply has better environmental conditions for learning thus allowing students to give better answers resulting in an apparent higher IQ. In theory IQ should not be affected by education but in practice we have not achieved that state as of yet. ...
