I think the average is 75. No offense, guys, but there's no way we're all geniuses.

Actually 75 is borderline retarded.

100 is average. Looks like 70 is the highest for retarded.
And it's a normal distribution. Means that 95% are within 70-130. Only 2.5% of the general population will have IQs above 130, yet almost everyone on here does. That's enough to tell me that the whole deal is bullshit, because there's no way some of you guys are that smart.

Although this reflects poorly on the Greys - he got a 109, which would be average, but there's obviously inflation on this, so...

the margin of error is large enough that the best this thing could do is indicate that we're all fairly intelligent.

The sample size is obviously too small. A lucky guess here or there will have too much sway. And there's no way everyone here should be over 100, even though I think this community should skew above average. There are obviously some very bright people here.

IQ tests tell you something, but they are far from absolute measures. The fact that one can typically improve scores through practice suggests as much. They do not measure strength of memory, which is arguably the most useful intellectual attribute a person can have, since the methods of solving problems are usually learned, rather than innate. I may have missed one or two of the math based puzzles on the quiz, but if I spent time working on such things, I'm sure I'd do better.

Did people actually think this was real? If I had to guess, I would say these scores are probably 20-25 points higher than you'd get on a real IQ test. All they want you to do is accidentally sign up for spam after you take the test, and flattering you with a high score will make you more likely to do that.

Huh? But I just got a page saying "Congratulations, your IQ is 134.", and then I scrolled down and copied the text that said "BBCode", and pasted here, I didn't even open my email.

I actually think everyone here would be over 100, since we're all of average or above average intelligence (I say this without arrogance, rather as a statement of my perception of you guys vs. other people I meet). A couple might be a little under, but I don't see anyone, even Trendkill, scoring under a 90.

Yeah, at least 20-25. But again, massive margin of error and only a couple questions means that this whole thing is almost utterly meaningless.

I did. My spam folder currently has 101 emails in it, including some new ones from my personal favorite, the Megadik Corporation.
