    According to the Stanford-Binet system, mine is 161. Is this good or bad compared to the average person?

    EDIT: what is it like compared to the average chess player?

    I'd say if you have to ask then I'd take the "test" again because the number is wrong (too high).🙄

    ?! The Stanford-Binet is the most reliable IQ test in the world and I took the one on paper..

    So you have an IQ of 161 and have to ask here what it means?

    Retard.

    I was asking for what other people's was because I heard that chess players are generally very clever. (two of the top ten highest IQs in the world are held by Garry Kasparov and Judit Polgar)
    There is no reason to call me a retard.

    If your life depended on it, what would be your best guess as to the average IQ? (and lets suppose you're given the opportunity to use google prior to submitting your answer

    What I'm referring to is the average chess player, as they are generally well educated. The average IQ of 100 is not a true reflection of the average person on this site.

    You never specified a subset if the worlds population with which to take average, and to infer chess players you could equally well infer IQ test takers.


    Further, I don't trust your correlation between eduction and likelyhood of attaining chess competency. Evidence?

    My scientific question as to whether there is a correlation between chess players and IQ is not being answered so I am going to abandon the thread in future. Yes, there are many variables but this is a forum and I cannot type them all. Please be helpful, use your common sense and put the information together.

    The Polgar sisters. Google them and Laszlo Polgar's education experiment.

    -142, chess is not like mathematics, much learning is subliminal.

    Nice thread, Tygert. My daughter, Heidi's IQ Score is similar to yours.
    Do you know the identities of the other eight of the Top Ten?
