Is the IQ test found on FaceBook.com (The "IQ Test" Application at http://apps.facebook.com/iqtests ) accurate?
I would like an answer from someone with proof, not just a guess, if at all possible.
I need to know whether or not I can believe the score I got on it. Thank you all very much for your help. :-)
Is the FaceBook "IQ Test" accurate?
I believe it is accurate to some degree. It probably has a larger margin for error since it is only 15 minutes long. View it as a comparison between your IQ and your friends. The absolute number may not be exact but if you beat your friends by a large margin, probably you are smarter.
If you want to see how smart you are, just look at the scores you got on SAT/GRE/LSAT/ etc. I posted some links for these test correlation
Reply:It is as accurate as a pancake on a sunny day

I would not rely on it even if my life depended on it.
An accurate IQ test usually lasts 4 hours and is conducted by a human being. The tests online are much less accurate and unreliable since they differ so much from each other. While some may emphasize some material, others may test more heavily on other topics.
