I received a score of 156 from the cesnet site and 152 from I went ahead and paid for the comprehensive results from as I have never taken an IQ test and I was wondering what various components of such a test would entail or indicate.

I must say that although it was a bit interesting, the whole experience was rather uneventful and lacked the "test excitement" I had always enjoyed in the past. At least now I have an idea what my IQ is and what potential I missed out on by not finishing college. = (

I can now live with the satisfaction that a college degree does NOT always engender intelligence in a person or prove that they are smatter than an individual who does not have a degree. All a degree says is a person completed a curriculum of study from an accredited university and knows something about a particular subject. I still plan on getting a degree eventually, just so I can advance further in both my career and sallary expectations. Long live the almighty buck! $$
