Here is mine. $$$100$$$ is the average for this open/free for all test.

    Pretty sure that verbal IQ score, at least as evaluated on this test, can be improved by reading books that use fancy words. You could unironically climb like 15 or 20 points on this test by expanding your vocabulary.

      Easier said than done. It might seem counterintuitive, but vocabulary tests are the best one-dimensional measures of IQ. This is because one's vocabulary largely reflects their learning capacity. Like someone with a bigger vocabulary will likely be able to learn and retain information better than someone with a smaller vocabulary.

      Increasing vocabulary can be done, but it would require a lot of effort (definitely more effort than increasing codeforces rating). The sad thing is that, even if you do increase your vocabulary, you haven't legitimately increased your intelligence, although you might've increased your score on vocabulary tests by a bit.

      As a side note, this test's vocabulary section is likely inaccurate for non-native English speakers.

I'm sure there are good intentions with this post but this test is a very mediocre test. It has a correlation of around r = ~.5 with the WAIS (a professional IQ test). Good IQ tests usually correlate with each other at around r = ~.8+. If you want to take an actual (now defunct) IQ test, take the AGCT: https://agctest.com. It has an estimated r = ~.9 correlation with general intelligence (general intelligence is a factor which can't be measured directly, you can read about it here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/G_factor_(psychometrics) ), and it is accepted by Mensa.

If you take the test on https://agctest.com, read the instructions carefully. There are 2 pages and 40 minutes for 150 questions. Results are free. And since I know there are a lot of kids on this site, don't enter your real name, but enter your real age onto that website since it will affect your score.

Adding a datapoint for the OP in case they want to do some research on these scores (I think someone did such an experiment on CF earlier too, by the way).

As someone pointed out, it's not the most accurate test out there (and I think IQ as defined by these tests is a scam).

      I just noticed how we got kinda complementary scores on the memory tests. And it's surprising how high other people score on memory too. Maybe competitive programming incentivizes development of memory (at least the kind of memory measured by this test)?

          That makes sense, though incentivizing something doesn't mean mandating it :)

          I'd say 122 is still a pretty decent score though, considering that the average is supposed to be 100, and considering other reds have gotten scores lower than this on spatial reasoning (which is related to visualization and can be similarly argued to be relevant for competitive programming).

Does anyone else think that training for algorithms/math competitions helps with these sorts of tests? I feel fairly confident that had I not had this sort of training, I would’ve scored a lot lower; in some sense I do think training in mathematical reasoning does build IQ, but perhaps the speed of IQ increase is something that is more “inborn,” or the acceleration of IQ increase, etc.

I believe that everyone is getting low on verbal because the test doesn't test you on your mother language. I also thought that i had better spatial than memory.

NOTE: If someone is collecting data, note that i don't really participate on CF contests, my elo would be higher if i would

Take away the verbal sections and my estimated IQ is 144.

Though WITH the verbal section... it's a whole different matter.
