Mine varies depending on what test I'm taking, but it's always in the top 1-2%. I was invited to join Mensa in the UK, but I didn't see the point; Mensans can be a weird bunch and it's not like I'd put it on my resume or anything.

They did public school testing when I was in elementary in the early '50s. I tested at 131 which was the second highest in the district. There were more than one test system which reflected different scales of numbers. IQ testing measures only certain parts of intellect and are very misleading. I've known people with lower IQ scores that are clearly smarter than I am, and no amount of intelligence will make up for a lack of determination. FWIW

[font="Comic Sans MS"][color="Navy"]Im not sure nor does it really matter to me what my IQ might be. Ive gotten this far in life with no problems and can function pretty well without knowing. Will admit Im no genius, but at least can tackle and most of the time, succeed, with whats put in front of me.

I have common sense and that's what's important.

I had my IQ at 50,000 feet once. That was a rush.
