I just took an online IQ test which for once looks to be dependable and accurate.
I wondered what the IQ of the average lucid dreamer is, I predict it would be higher than the average population (ie. higher than 100) since lucid dreaming requires certain pattern recognition skills (to recognize one is dreaming), visualisation and spatial manipulation skills (for WILD) etc etc.
Also mention how successful you are at lucid dreaming so we can see if there is a correlation between IQ and lucid dreaming ability. The test also gives a breakdown of what your score is in each individual area, such as visualisation. It would be interesting to see if expert WILDers have high visualisation scores etc.
To start it off, I guess I did ok, but not as well as I would have liked, I scored 122, which only puts me in the above average category.
You can view your full report anytime online at the following url.
Your age adjusted IQ score is 101 and the average score of all test takers is 100.
Your IQ score is the result of a formula based on the number of questions answered correctly on the test. This score has been further adjusted to account for the differences in capabilities among various age groups.
the only thing i’m above average in is verbal with 75th percentile, doesn’t surprise me, i’m horrible at math and spatial, no surprise
and dead average in general knowledge.
they needed more funky word games like if all splorks are dorks but not all dorks are splorks, then, blah blah blah.
I scored a magical 127 but unfortunately I think IQ tests are relatively de-humanising and contribute to silly competition and needless envy when something so narrow minded as to measure only spatial, mathematical and linguisict ability is really leaving out 99% of what it means to be a human being.
Also since I think dreaming has much much more to do with the intuitive and spiritual sides of an individual, an internet IQ test is downright inconsequential… therefore, everybody have at it!
I got 125, that’s about what I usually get on IQ-tests.
Pattern Recognition 73
General Knowledge 45
Short term memory 71
I think the test was a bit short to make a correct analysis of how intelligent one is. And I would have to agree with old shoes that it leaves out a lot, but it’s a easy way to measure IQ. And atleast somewhat accurate.
Guess visual things are my strongest side, then again I have always known that. My memory is almost completely based on visual things. It I didn’t visualise I couldn’t remember anything
I would also love to know some accurate results between IQ and the ability to LD. The average lucid dreamer may not have online access. I think this poll could test more the average IQ of LD4all’ers willing to take this IQ test AND post their scores on this thread.
I doubt many that score say 101 or less will decide to not post the results here.
I think being able to use a computer well enough to register on this forum will totally remove a lot of lower IQ people. The average internet user is not of someone with a low IQ.
Also, someone that has difficultly with this test may become frustrated and not complete the test at all. Added with the pure geek factor of doing a test with 12 minutes of your free time also seems to filter out a good number of lower IQ testees. size=59[/size]
I think these factors will result in replies with higher than average IQ result.
I took the test, and while on question 17 noticed I had less than one minute left to finish! I didn’t know it was timed until then.
Funny though, because I thought I was blazin’ through it with no problem. hah I thought “wow, these questions are so easy and I’m going so fast”
but then my time was over and I scored 101 I got all my questions right but I guessed on #17 about the “what city doesn’t belong” and was wrong.
All of my life I have remembered finishing test last, but scoring high. I really hate timed test because of this.
In elementary school they put me in slower kids classes(hah! don’t laugh) , and then I didn’t fail 3rd grade but they held me back that grade. It was horrible but hilariously fun at the same time. Luckily some national test was done at my school and I scored >140 IQ and it totally blasted my teachers away. A nice and great teacher studying psychology kept in touch with me the whole following year. I was put in Academically gifted classes and excelled just as I did in the lower classes.
So if a test is timed for me it totally impairs my score. I’ve learned long ago I juggle my thought processes before coming to a conclusion and it takes more time… but I like to think it has benefits that outweigh the stupid outward appearence it may create.
A person whose IQ score falls in the range of 129-143 is considered to be “highly intelligent”.
An IQ is a composite of your scores across 12 distinct aspects of intelligence. Each person has a unique intellectual make-up, with strengths and weaknesses that affect their methods of understanding, recognition, communication and association. Using a carefully cross-reference scoring scheme, TestCafe is able to accumulate a profound quantity of information about your natural intellectual abilities.
For example, your Pattern Recognition score is 88.
