10 Websites With Fun Tests To Gauge Your IQ

Saikat Basu 17-01-2011

Stephen Hawking and Albert Einstein are on this list. So are Paul Allen and Bill Gates. Abraham Lincoln is also assumed to be a member. Sharon Stone definitely is. But then so might be the guy or gal sitting next to you on the bus. It is a coveted three digit number, but it is far from an exclusive club.


Intelligence Quotient (IQ) is a term that’s related to the wattage of your brain; in short intelligence and reasoning skills measured across a few standardized tests. Before an inferiority complex starts laying its foundation, remember that I.Q is not a measure of knowledge or its practical application.

To rub our egos the right way, you might take a few serious approved tests and arrive at your IQ. Me? I don’t want to find out where I end up on the dunce scale, so I usually head to these fun tests to gauge my IQ.  Even if I don’t ace them, I can have a bit of fun in the process.

      I assure you that we are not. As the author, the mistake is entirely mine. The objective of the post was to highlight 'fun' tests and not serious ones. As it is as I have mentioned in the text that the results should be taken with a pinch of salt, because a serious gauge of IQ takes some work. A couple of erroneous websites did come in and for that I can only apologize.

    "fun education" should come with a warning label. You have to work really hard skipping special offers to get detailed results. otherwise it is pretty good.
