Much less than it used to be. This test took me 2 hours to complete and it cost $12 to get the results. What a scam, but I believe this was much the same as the L.A.I.T test featured in Omni magazine when I was in my early 30s, half a life ago.This one was three sections as well, my highest original score was 154, followed by a 148, then a depressing 139. I believe the results here are a mean average since it isn't divided into sections but they get harder as you go. Hey try your luck, hehehe
Btw, I took this test today, 11/26/18.https://brainstats.com/average-iq-in-united-states.html
Btw, yes I was drinking throughout this entire test, hahahaha
And smoking weed! Yes I expected the results to be much lower now than 35 years ago after even more decades of drinking and drugs, and they were as expected ... but hey, I think I'm still doing okay. I might drop dead at any moment but I'm still well above the American average IQ at 95.9 percent. (according to such IQ tests)

Subject: Your IQ Test results are ready
Congratulations! You've reached the end of this IQ Test. Here is a summary of your report:
Score: ≥ 25 correct answers
Scale: Wechsler (standard deviation of 15)
Report ID: D69RBSBoerEspP2P4
You can access your full online report at any time using the following link:https://https://brainstats.com/report/D69RBSBoerEspP2P4.html
You can also, if you want, share this link with your friends.
Synopsis of results link. In case you don't want to click it.
You belong to the class of people called gifted (less than 14% of the global population) with an IQ of 126.3 (percentile 95.9%, Wechsler scale) with more than 25 correct answers.
Your intellectual capacity far exceeds the norm.
You have the capacity to generalize and to grasp complex concepts and phenomena. Your capacity for abstraction is above average and predisposes you to higher education. If you are given the opportunity to develop this potential, you will achieve excellent results in fields requiring management ability or creative traits.
Your IQ and its interpretation are provided purely for information.
This test should never replace an IQ test administered by a professional, after several preliminary talks to determine your psychological condition and all other parameters that could positively or negatively affect your result.
Keep in mind that this kind of test generally measures a limited aspect of the intelligence, and that a low result does not mean that you will fail in your life. You can be an outstanding musician, have an exceptional memory and have a less developed sense of logic, or vice versa.
How to interpret my percentile?
A percentile of 95.9% means that 95.9% of the test subjects have an IQ which is lower than yours. In other words, you are more intelligent than 95.9% of the population.
Could I know my correct answers?
In short: you can't. The main quality of an IQ test is to be sufficiently discriminating, that is to say to be able to guarantee that two people with different intelligence who take the same test will obtain a different result, proportional to their intelligence.
To guarantee a result as reliable and discriminating as possible, it is strictly forbidden to share or publish correct answers. No serious IQ test will give you the opportunity to know your correct answers, and this test is no exception to the rule. If the answers to an IQ test were ever published, then all further results would be meaningless and the test would immediately lose its validity.
Without being able to be more specific, we have decided to give you a range that will indicate your approximate number of correct answers. In your case, you have more than 25 correct answers.
>>(95.9% of 40 questions = 38.36 answers correct!) Just added for reference. Correct me if I'm wrong but they won't tell you how many or which ones you got correct. So I decided to try and work that out based on what was provided. But that may also not be an accurate evaluation because of the un-characterised algorithms used to produce the 95.9% score.<<
What exactly does this test measure?
Used for more than 60 years for children and adults alike in more than a hundred countries, this IQ test evaluates an essential component of intelligence: inductive capacity.
Inductive capacity is defined as a person’s capacity to formulate new concepts when faced with new information, to extract meaning from confusion or ambiguity and to think through complex situations and events in a clear manner.
This IQ test is thus able to differentiate between individuals according to their capacity for immediate observation and their logical reasoning and determine their learning potential.
This IQ test is an international test, known as non-linguistic and culture fair (in other words acultural): there are neither letters nor numbers, only logical sequences in geometric shapes.
Thanks to this particularity, this IQ test is used by psychologists for more than 40 years and throughout the world, for people from different cultures and who speak different languages.
It is often the best choice, especially in schools where students often come from a variety of cultural backgrounds<<
I bet she says that to all the guys. And their encouragements are obviously meant for a much younger guy. LOL
As if I gave a fuck about getting back into the corporate world.
