My IQ Test by Tickle

By Tickle.com

 

You scored 135 on Tickle’s IQ test. This means that based on your answers, your IQ score is between 125 and 135. Most people’s IQs are between 70 and 130.

In fact, 95% of all people have IQs within that range. 68% of people score between 80 and 120. The following chart to your right, shows these percentages and where your IQ score is on that scale.

 

Your Intellectual Type Is: Visionary Philosopher

 

Your mind’s strengths allow you to think ahead of the game — to imagine or anticipate what should come next in just about any situation. Because you’re equally skilled in the numerical and verbal universes of the brain, you can draw from multiple sources of information to come up with great ideas. The timelessness of your vision and the balance between your various skills are what make you a Visionary Philosopher.

 

In addition to your strengths in math and linguistics, you have a knack for matching and anticipating patterns. These skills and your uncanny ability to detect the underlying blueprint of most of life’s situations add to your Visionary Philosopher mind.

Two philosophers who share the same combination of skills you possess are Plato and Benedict Spinoza. Spinoza had insight into how things worked in the world. He could envision a future based on the patterns he saw in life, and used mathematical logic as a structure within which to present his philosophical arguments. With that base he was able to use logic to formulate his theories. Borrowing from his linguistic strengths he wrote eloquent texts and, therefore, was able to bring his philosophical ideas and structure to the rest of the world. His story exemplifies the talents that are present in the Visionary Philosopher intellectual type.

 

Whatever you decide to do in life, you’ve got a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a wide variety of ways. You can expand your mind to understand a situation. Your strong balance of math and verbal skills will help you explain things to others. For example, if you were on an archaeological dig and discovered an object, you could probably use your deductive powers to figure out not only what the object was but also how it was used. Given your ability to put things together, you are more than capable of inventing a life plan that is in synch with your perspective on how things were, how they are, and how they might be one day.

 

Your 4 Intelligence Scales

 

 

Now let’s look at the factors that contribute to you being a Visionary Philosopher with a 135 IQ score.

 

Based on the results of your test, Tickle divided your scores into four distinguishable dimensions — mathematical intelligence, visual-spatial intelligence, linguistic intelligence and logic intelligence.

 

Here’s how each of your intelligence scores break down:

 

 

Mathematical Intelligence

 

You scored in the 100th percentile on the mathematical intelligence scale.This means that you scored higher than 90% – 100% of people who took the test and that 0% – 10% scored higher than you did. The scale above illustrates this visually.

 

Your mathematical intelligence score represents your combined ability to reason and calculate. You scored relatively high, which means you’re probably the one your friends look to when splitting the lunch bill or calculating your waitresses’ tip. You may or may not be known as a math whiz, but number crunching might come a little easier to you than it does others.

 

Flexing Your Math Muscles

Like anything, keeping or improving your math talents requires practice. Here are some everyday mental exercises that could be particularly helpful to you:

Balancing your checkbook

Figuring out your monthly budget

Predicting what the change will be the next time you buy something

Calculating your waitperson’s tip in your head

 

 

Visual-Spatial Intelligence

 

You scored in the 100th percentile on the visual-spatial intelligence scale.

This means that you scored higher than 90% – 100% of people who took the test and that 0% – 10% scored higher than you did. The scale above illustrates this visually.

 

The visual-spatial component of intelligence measures your ability to extract a visual pattern and from that envision what should come next in a sequence. Your score was relatively high, which could mean that you’re the one navigating the map when you’re on an outing with friends. You have, in some capacity, an ability to think in pictures. Maybe this strength comes out in subtle ways, like how you play chess or form metaphors.

 

 

Vision Quest

Like anything, keeping or improving visual-spatial talents requires some practice. Here are some everyday mental exercises that will be particularly helpful to you:

Playing chess, or video games like Tetris

Studying maps and become the navigator on your next trip

Sculpting or photography

 

 

 

 

Linguistic Intelligence

 

You scored in the 100th percentile on the linguistic intelligence scale.

This means that you scored higher than 90% – 100% of people who took the test and that 0% – 10% scored higher than you did. The scale above illustrates this visually.

 

Linguistic abilities include reading, writing and communicating with words. Tickle’s test measures knowledge of vocabulary, ease in completing word analogies and the ability to think critically about a statement based on its semantic structure. Your score was relatively high, which could mean you know your way around a bookstore and maybe like to bandy about the occasional 25-cent word to impress friends.

 

Word Power

Like anything, keeping or improving linguistic talents requires some practice. Here are some everyday mental exercises that will be particularly helpful to you:

Doing crossword puzzles

Start reading just for fun

Befriending your dictionary

The next time something breaks, try reading the instruction book first

 

 

 

 

Logical Intelligence

 

You scored in the 100th percentile on the logical intelligence scale.

This means that you scored higher than 90% – 100% of people who took the test and that 0% – 10% scored higher than you did. The scale above illustrates this visually.

 

Tickle’s logical intelligence questions assess your ability to think things through. The questions determine the extent to which you use reasoning and logic to determine the best solution to a problem. Your logic score was relatively high, which could mean that when the car breaks down, your friends look to you to help figure out not only what’s wrong, but how to fix it and how you’re going to get to the next gas station.

 

Logic Lessons

Like anything, keeping or improving logical talents requires some practice. Here are some everyday mental exercises that will be particularly helpful to you:

Trying some brain teasers

Throwing away the instructions and relying on instinct to fix something

Playing chess

 

What factors helped determine my score?

 

If your score isn’t as high as you thought it would be, remember that there are plenty of external factors that can affect your performance on the test. If you were tired, hungry or distracted, you might have scored lower than you expected because you were less able to concentrate.

 

Your level of formal education and your familiarity with taking these kinds of tests also influence how well you do. That’s part of the reason IQ tests aren’t a perfect measure of your intelligence. Your score would probably be quite different if the IQ test was designed to take into account your musical, artistic, emotional and social skills.

 

On their own, IQ scores can’t predict someone’s ultimate success or definitive potential for success. Many of the qualities that lead to great achievements are learned through culture, experience and schooling – not solely from doing well on an IQ test.

 

What your IQ test can help explain, however, is how your brain works best. By looking at the kinds of questions you answered correctly and the kinds of questions you answered incorrectly, we can tell you more about your intelligence type — the type that explains the kind of information that makes sense to your brain.
