Your IQ score is 147. This means that you are smarter than 99.0% of all other Super IQ test takers.

This number is the result of a scientifically-tested formula based on how many questions you answered correctly on the Tickle Super IQ Test.

But there's more to intelligence than a single number, a single score, or a single label. Tickle uses 8 distinguishable dimensions of intelligence in the Super IQ Test. By analyzing your individual scores on those 8 scales, we are able to look beyond the raw IQ score into how you process information, and which intellectual strengths you're best at.

Your test results indicate that the way you process information makes you a Complex Intellectual.

You are highly intelligent and talented in two critical areas: math and language. While others may be skilled at one, you are exceptional at both. Your ability to understand theoretical or abstract information and your attention to detail only make your mathematical and linguistic skills stronger. You are a highly conceptual, complex thinker.

Because of your numerous intellectual abilities, you probably rarely come across something you're not good at. You are a quick study and so have a tendency to look for and find the deeper meaning in things. You might intellectualize a situation or muse about its layers of complexity, making grand-scale associations. While others are relieved to have tangible, concrete information to work with, you may find yourself easily bored and so you seek more intellectual content.

Here's an example of your Complex Intellectual thinking skills at work in a real-life situation:

You go to a play with a bunch of friends. You recognize that some of the lines from the play are highly similar to a play you read a long time ago in school. Not only that, but you also notice that the play is structured in such a way that those types of lines occur in every other scene in the play. You are excited by your revelations and start explaining this to your friends. You want to go out for coffee and talk about what it all might mean, and whether the author intended it to be this way. Others might be more inclined to talk about the costumes or other more obvious elements of the play, and you shouldn't take this too personally. Your insights are definitely valuable, so don't stop sharing them — just be aware that you might occasionally receive some blank stares. Thank goodness you think the way you do!

Now that you know about how you process information, let's drill down to see what your specific intellectual strengths are. None of the intellectual abilities is more important than any of the others. And it's your unique scores on each of these scales, that makes you an interesting addition to any group, office, or family.

These intellectual strengths color your world and the way you perceive it, and also allow you to contribute your original perspective when solving problems and coming up with ideas. No one intellectual dimension can define you. It's the original combination of your intellectual strengths that makes you special.

As you can see, your top scores are in the areas of Organizational, Logical, and Mechanical. This is a very unusual combination — only 6 in 1,000 people have it. Want more proof? Then pay attention to the percentages of people who scored higher and lower than you on each of the 8 intellectual strengths.

Organizational Ability

Your organizational ability score is 99 out of 100. Organizational ability is what allows you to organize and arrange information effectively, be precise, and proofread carefully.In every-day life, organizational ability is what you use to proofread a paper or organize a messy desk. Coming up with an organizational system for keeping track of things comes easy to those who are high in this ability. It is a highly practical skill.

Compared with others, your organizational ability is very high. This means that you have a very strong organizational ability.

Logical Ability

Your scored 99 out of 100. Logical ability is what you use when determining whether or not something makes sense. You rely on logic when analyzing an argument, step-by-step. This ability also contributes to your aptitude for recognizing underlying patterns.

In every-day life, you might use this ability to figure out the best route to the store, or to figure out the best deal when choosing between a couple items to buy. Everyone has a certain ability to use logic to solve problems. Some are better at it than others, however.

Compared with others, your logical ability is very high. This means that you are an extremely logical person.

Mechanical Ability

You scored 99 out of 100. Mechanical ability is what helps you understand how machines and tools work. Someone with a good amount of mechanical ability probably has an innate understanding of physics. High mechanical skill is also associated with a high degree of precision and practical thinking.

In every-day life, mechanical ability comes in handy when anything in the house breaks, or when you have to purchase something that requires physical assembly. It is also helpful in finding solutions to physical problems, such as determining how to build a pulley to bring water out of a well.

Compared with others, your mechanical abilities are very high. This means that you have a very strong mechanical ability.

Verbal Ability

Your verbal ability score is 99 out of 100. Verbal ability means having an expansive range of vocabulary, being able to use it, and feeling a desire to add to it. It is also what allows you to comprehend the relationships and subtle difference between words.

In every-day life, verbal ability is essential to being able to interpret written materials. It's also valuable for communication — the more vocabulary words you know, the more precisely you may be able to convey your point.

Compared with others, your verbal ability is very high. This means that you have a very strong verbal ability.

Visual Ability

Your score is 99 out of 100. Visual ability allows you to accurately visualize all aspects of an object for the purposes of recreating it, the way painters do. It's also what you use to imagine a scene from a novel or a story someone tells you — the ability to accurately reproduce reality in the mind's eye.

In every-day life, visual ability is what you use when creating original art. In order to reproduce an object on canvas (as painters do) you have to be able to accurately represent the dimensions of those objects in the picture. Getting the accurate perspective and depth is easiest for someone with a strong visual ability.

Compared with others, your visual ability is very high. This means that you have a very strong visual ability.

Spatial Ability

You scored 96 out of 100. You use spatial ability to judge the relationship between objects and physical space, like a parked car and the width of the road. It is also what helps you visualize a room when you are decorating or rearranging furniture.

In every-day life, you use this ability when you drive or even when you are walking through a packed crowd (so that you don't run into other people!). Some people actually use this ability to help them with non-physical things. If they are trying to understand a situation, they might think of the words as shapes that they need to negotiate.

Compared with others, your spatial abilities are very high. This means that you have a very strong sense of how things exist in physical space.

Abstract Reasoning Ability

Your score is 93 out of 100. With abstract reasoning you can think on multiple levels and see relationships between ideas that are not easily apparent. When you're using your abstract reasoning skills, you draw on both external logical and creative sources of information to come up with your solution.

In every-day life, abstract reasoning ability is used to understand complex, multi-layered situations, sometimes involving the associations and relationships between two seemingly different sets of information. For example, imagine someone who has taken piano lessons and was taught that the skill was more easily obtained when she pointed out her struggles to her teacher. She was able to learn from them and improve. This same woman then takes writing lessons and again makes her mistakes obvious so that the instructor can suggest changes and she can improve.

Compared with others, your abstract ability is very high. This means that you have a very strong abstract ability.

Numerical Ability

You scored 92 out of 100. You use numerical ability when you spot a numerical pattern or solve a numerical equation.

In every-day life, you use the ability to calculate a tip at a restaurant, or estimate taxes on a purchase. Everyone has this ability to a greater or lesser extent.

Compared with others, your numerical ability is very high. This means that you have no problem processing numbers.

Tickle's psychologists have built IQ tests before (take a look at the Ultimate IQ test and the Emotional IQ test), so the initial research for the development of the Super IQ test was already in place. We used proven, high-quality IQ test questions similar to those found in the Mensa Workout tests and the Shipley Institute of Living Scale to focus on both vocabulary and verbal abstract reasoning — two of the scales often relied on for standard IQ tests. But to create the Super IQ test, we wanted to test more abilities and make the test even more comprehensive. We believed we could assess a person's IQ even more accurately that way.

In the past, researchers who've constructed IQ tests discovered certain patterns. A particular test-taker seemed to answer questions correctly in terms of categories such as mathematical, visual, verbal, and logical. For example, researchers found that a test-taker who answers the math-oriented and verbal questions correctly tends to answer the logical questions incorrectly. From such patterns, experts were able to define some internal scales of intelligence to the overall IQ test. Thus, using those internal scales, they could offer an actual IQ score, such as 105, as well as a measurement of how well the test-taker did within each question category.

Building on what has already been discovered, Tickle has designed the most accurate, comprehensive, and thorough intelligence assessment of its kind with the Super IQ test. It assesses the broadest array of intellectual abilities of any online IQ test and gets at those hard-to-assess abilities.

The Super IQ test was built by structuring questions around eight primary types of thinking abilities: visual, logical, numerical, spatial, organizational, verbal, mechanical, and abstract reasoning. We then analyzed nearly 100 questions to choose those that could best measure these 8 dimensions of intelligence. The resulting 53 questions comprise our Super IQ test.

Each of the questions in the Tickle IQ test relates to one or more dimensions of intelligence. How reliable are these dimensions? Well, for the scientists and statisticians out there, their reliability coefficients were .62 (visual), .78 (logical), .70 (numerical), .72 (spatial), .62 (organizational), .64 (verbal), .62 (mechanical), and .72 (abstract reasoning). The gist of all that is that Tickle's scales of intelligence are highly valid and we can accurately tell a test-taker how high they scored on each of those scales relative to other test-takers - thus yielding an accurate intellectual type.

With data from a large-scale study conducted to compare the results of people who took the test, we developed norms against which future scores are compared. Therefore, your score on the Super IQ test is measured against the scores of those who took our initial study.
