Are there good IQ tests on the Internet?
There is a lot of different IQ tests on the Internet. How to know which one will give you real result? In fact, very hard or not at all.
Internet tests usually do not give us enough information to be sure that the test meets all the necessary conditions to be a valid IQ test. In any case, each IQ test should be carried out in standardized terms, which means clearly defined and equal to all the standards, which in the case of Internet testing is very difficult to control.
The job of creating an IQ test is a complex and lengthy process that needs to follow a lot of strict rules. For example, it would be as culturally neutral as possible. This means that the results on the test should be less affected by cultural affiliation and pre-education, so it is considered that they are culturally more impartial tests that do not have numbers and words. The test should also be fully standardized, ie tested on large populations, and then adjusted and matured for years.
If you want to solve the best test that is currently available, you will need to come to our testing. Mensa always tries to have the best test that is currently available, and each test is conducted by an authorized psychologist who is the only one who can evaluate the tests and have insight into the results (Mensa is only provided with a list of candidates who have fulfilled the membership criteria).
If you still want to have a test on the internet, just for fun, the best we have found is on the pages of Danish Mensa
And just a little note about the score -> if someone says IQ is 120 or 150 or 170, it just doesn't mean anything. Different tests have different statistical parameters, more specifically standard deviations, and can not be compared directly. That means, for example, that the IQ 148 on a test that once was used by Croatian Mensa corresponds to IQ 131 on the test we use today. The difference is just in the mentioned statistical parameters, but the crucial is that in both cases the result is top 2% of the whole population.
And of course, if you really want to see how things are going on, especially if you have a score over 120 in the Danish test, we recommend you to come to the real official testing.
