Perfect score. Stop over analyzing and put the answer you know they say is right. Nobody would name their pet Gretchen and no tranny would ever chose that name. If Gretchen was a woman that identified herself as a male, then he would be going by a male name. Gretchen is a human female!

It all depends upon which sex Gretchen `identifies` with. (or for that matter, the dog may `identify` as a not very bright toaster oven).

Yeah I agree 7 is wrong. No reason to assume Gretchen is a person.

One of them is wrong. The correct answer is that we don`t have enough information to know if Gretchen is afraid of dogs because we don`t know if Gretchen is a woman. She could be a girl or a hamster or a boy with an unexpected name. Yes, I am that bored tonight.

question 5 is stupid. an IQ test is supposed to be about intellect, not knowledge. to get the right answer, you have to KNOW what diplomatic means.

The point of an intelligence test (or any test for that matter) isn`t always what is the right answer, but what is the answer they are looking for? So regardless of the semantics of question 7, they were looking for that answer and it is the one most people understood from the context.

Kangaroo is also the only animal that stands primarily on 2 legs.

People are aware that online IQ tests are not a valid method of gauging your intelligence, right?

As for the first question,

I choose Kangaroo because the rest are all commonly used as beasts of burden.

I doubt that everyone on IAB is a genius, but I am guessing the majority scored perfectly, because:

1) most of us have taken tests like this before.
2) we understand the nature of these tests and how they work.
3) they were extremely simple questions.

Also the kangaroo is a Marsupial. the others aren`t. (pouch vs no pouch)

"Questions like #7 drive me crazy. Technically the answer is wrong because it is based on an assumption. You are assuming that Gretchen is a woman. These tests should be testing logic and assumption has no place in logic."

Agreed. I`ve never heard the name before and presumed it was a made up name that could be male or female. An attempt to make us think laterally, which I did, and got it wrong. But I was right. Lame question.

I test from 147 to 152, but that`s not what makes someone a genius or effective. You need a wide experience base, good mentoring at the right time and EQ (or the ability to fake EQ when called upon). Also note that someone who is a genius in one area may be inept in other fields. IQ is not the be all and end all.

11/11 You are in the 140-150 range:
Genius intelligence.

I`m smart enough to know that`s not true :(

Barring any discrepancies (Like a dog being different from the other animals in that it is a carnivour, etc.) I think most people will get most of these right.

@madduck: A donkey will scavenge meat, not often but they will. Not cows though, afaik!

The other difference could be one is from Australia, but the other 3 originated in Europe? Although dogs were everywhere else too...

@holygod: But the question is about "blue eyed human females" so the picture could be of that, eh? And Gretchen is a fine name for a dog, who may have blue eyes, dogs are also part of the question...

While it`s not "illogical" to presume the picture is of Gretchen, it`s also possible to be otherwise.

No one else paused from the "Diplomatic" question? The one (correct) answer seems fine, but "Shy" or "Sophisticated" could also apply... sort of?

I agree with the Gretchen one. I assumed there wasn`t enough data to go by and not use the picture. cause there was a previous pic saying. a diplomatic person is _ _ _? which made me think I had to pick a three letter answer.

deputy, bliznik, bardockjerms, 5Cats, paperduck,

There is a picture of gretchen. She clearly is a woman. We use the images in 1, 2, 4, 9, and 11 to solve the problem. Why would you assume the image in 7 is not part of the equation?

I guess those COULD be a man`s eyes, but gretchen is obviously not a dog.

This is the problem. These tests are way too easy. That is why everyone on the internet thinks they are a genius. If you want to actually find your IQ, go take a standardized IQ test.

It will probably cost around $100, be at least 150 questions and most of them will be harder than anything on here, although it is these types of questions.

Not hard, but I argue the first one as a dog is a carnivore (omnivore?) - and while the Kangaroo is a marsupial a marsupial is still a mammal but is a herbivore as are a donkey and a cow. Gretchen is a standard valid argument...

I too got the Gretchen one "wrong" because Gretchen being a woman wasn`t one of the given facts. This was a pretty lousy test. That question was the closest one that required more than 2 brain cells and the answer was wrong.

@bliznik & @bardockjerms: Ah! I see it now... I was thrown because there`s only 3 answers, not 4 like all the rest.

You guys are right about #7: Gretchen could be a dog... or a cat! So the correct answer there is "not enough information". We cannot presume Gretchen is a human...

... and I see it has only 3 answers, not 4 :-P Lolz!

I only got 1 question wrong, this was too simple.... The one I got wrong was:

Assume that both of these statements are true. All blue eyed women are afraid of dogs. Gretchen has blue eyes. Is Gretchen afraid of dogs?

I was going to say yes but I thought that Gretchen could have been a man with a woman`s name, the question does not specify Gretchen`s gender therefore I said I didn`t have enough date.... In my opinion I was 100% right.

5Cats, for #9 one of the figures is rotated before the pieces are pieced together.

This quiz is too easy for an IQ test. I got all of them right except for #7, but I don`t think their answer is correct. We don`t know whether Gretchen is a woman. Not enough data.

The correct answer (#4) is missing from Question #9 :-P The three answers presented are wrong...

I presume there`s 4 choices, eh?

Aside from that? Easy as Pi!
