> Verbal Intelligence Test

Of course, this doesn't really measure intelligence as much as education, but it's still kinda fun (and a challenge!) nonetheless... > Verbal Intelligence Test:

"Sir Francis Galton, the cousin of Charles Darwin, first popularized the notion of measurable intelligence in the late 1800s. Charles Spearman later discovered that all mental abilities tend to correlate together when statistically analyzed. He called this G. Modern researchers tend to agree that there are two kinds of intelligence, crystallized intelligence (learned knowledge) and fluid intelligence (abstract processing ability). Verbal tests tend to measure crystallized intelligence more. While fluid intelligence peaks between the ages of 18-21, dropping after that, crystallized intelligence can increase as you get older and does not degrade (usually) until fairly late in life. According to a number of studies, the correlation between vocabulary and general iq is around .8 (a very high correlation).

Congratulations, you obtained a very high score... Your overall percentile is 99% which means you scored higher than 99% of the people who have taken this test..."
