Your IQ score is 141. This means that you are smarter than 99.0% of all other Super IQ test takers.
This number is the result of a scientificallytested 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 an Intuitive Investigator.
You've got a sharp, logical mind and you are multitalented. There
seems to nothing that your mind can't process and understand. You're
able to detect numerical patterns easily, and grasp the true complexity
of the world, both in its details and in the abstract. Even in
particularly challenging situations, you are more than capable of using
a variety of words to explain yourself. The combination of all these
things makes you simply "brilliant."
Your mind is so active that you might sometimes forget about your
physical environment, or feel a little clumsy with your body (since the
mind which governs your body is so busy thinking.) But even this is not
likely to pose a significant problem for you.
Here's an example of your Intuitive Investigator thinking skills at work in a reallife situation:
You go to a museum with a bunch of friends to see an exhibit
chronicling the development of critical inventions over time. Your
friends marvel at the ingenuity of the inventors, and wonder how they
could ever have conceived such incredible innovations. You, on the
other hand, can easily imagine how the inventions work and how they
came to be because your mind just naturally thinks that way. You
explain to your friends how the inventors might have assessed
particular problems and then figured out how to solve them with their
inventions. It hadn't occurred to your friends to look at an invention
like a solution to a problem and they are grateful that you helped them
understand it that way. 


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 Mechanical,
Numerical, and Verbal. 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.
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.
Here's a question that required high mechanical ability to solve:
Which object will fall faster? A 8 x 11 piece of paper or a peanut? Both weight the same amount.
A. The piece of paper
B. The peanut
C. It is impossible to know
The paper will encounter more resistance than will the peanut, and so
it will fall more slowly. The peanut will fall faster and so the
correct answer is B.
In everyday 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.
You scored 99 out of 100. You use numerical ability when you spot a
numerical pattern or solve a numerical equation. Here's a question that
assessed your numerical ability:
Which number completes the series? 1, 3/2, 2, 5/2, ?
Here's the answer: 3
In everyday 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.
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.
Here's a question that required verbal ability:
The opposite of acute is:
A. Severe
B. Incisive
C. Dull
D. Flamboyant
The opposite of the word acute, meaning sharp or finely tuned, is dull, so the correct answer is C.
In everyday 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.
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.
Here's a question that required high visual ability to solve:
Which of the images below is a perfect square?
Here's the answer: Eyeballing it, you can see that image A is the
square with identical length and height, and so the correct answer is A.
In everyday 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.
Your score is 97 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.
Here's a question that required high abstract reasoning ability to solve:
What comes next in the sequence?
Here's the answer: The progression from one figure to the next is the
addition of 1/2 of the previously added box. So the first figure is one
box; the second figure is the first box plus a box 1/2 of its size; the
third figure is the previous two boxes plus a box 1/2 of the last added
box's size. Therefore the final figure (the question mark) should be
the third figure plus a box 1/2 of the last added box. The correct
answer is B.
In everyday life, abstract reasoning ability is used to understand
complex, multilayered 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.
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.
Here's a question that required high spatial ability to solve:
Which is the odd one out?
A
B
C
D
Here's the answer: The thunderbolts in A, B, and C are all going in the
same way, but the one in D is actually a flipped version of the rest.
In everyday 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
nonphysical 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.
Your scored 95 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, stepbystep. This ability also contributes
to your aptitude for recognizing underlying patterns.
Here's a question that required high logical ability to solve:
Mary loved pink flowers more than she loved red ones. She didn't like
orange flowers at all, and while she liked yellow flowers, she couldn't
say that she really loved them. Which of these is true?
A. She liked red flowers less than orange flowers
B. She liked yellow flowers more than red flowers
C. She liked pink flowers more than yellow flowers
D. She liked orange flowers more than pink flowers
Here's the answer: She liked yellow flowers but didn't love them;
however, she did love pink and red ones  pink more than red. Thus far
the order of preference is pink, red, yellow. But she liked orange
least of all, which means the new order is pink, red, yellow, orange.
This means that she liked red more than orange (which makes option A
not true). She liked yellow less than red (which makes option B not
true). She liked pink more than yellow, which makes option C true, and
she liked orange less than any of the flowers, which makes option D not
true. Therefore, the correct answer is C.
In everyday 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.
Your organizational ability score is 88 out of 100. Organizational
ability is what allows you to organize and arrange information
effectively, be precise, and proofread carefully.
Here's a question that required high organizational ability:
Which of the following character strings is the closest match to 8,392,211,109?
Here's the answer: The correct answer is B. Try reading each of the
answer options not as numbers, but rather as a string of characters;
when you do so, you will find that B has the fewest mismatches,
position for position, in the string of characters. See below
(mismatches highlighted in red):
Original string:  8,392,211,109  
Answer A:  8,382,311,119   3 mismatches 
Answer B:  8,3925211,129   2 mismatches 
Answer C:  8,39,2211,208   4 mismatches 
Answer D:  8,329,211,108   3 mismatches 
In everyday 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
high.
This means that
you have a strong organizational ability.



Want a higher score next time? Here are some activities you can do before taking your next IQ test.

Get more oxygen to your brain. You'll be able to
think more clearly. To do this, go for a walk, or simply take deep,
long breaths. Practicing yoga is also good. Some even claim you can get
more oxygen by swimming underwater, and holding your breath for longer
and longer periods of time. This increases the amount of oxygen in your
brain and will allow you to focus better on the test.



Take time to relax. If you feel anxious, you'll
probably make more mistakes. Practice peaceful visualization, imagining
scenes that are calming to you. Meditate or do whatever it is you know
calms you down, before taking the test.



Listen to Mozart. It may sound like a stretch,
but some researchers have found that listening to Mozart actually
increases your spatial IQ. They call it the Mozart Effect and believe
that the music stabilizes the neural connections necessary for
spatialtemporal abilities



Practice, practice, practice. Take a range of
different types of IQ tests. The greater the range of problems, the
more ready you'll be to tackle the unexpected on a new IQ test. Why not
take Tickle's Ultimate IQ test, if you haven't already.  



= Your Answer 
= Correct Answer 
1.  Which rectangle is on top of all the rest?

   A 
   B 
   C 
   D 
   E 
   F 




The rectangle that has no lines going through it is the one on top of the rest. The correct answer is B.





2.  If Kentwood is closer to Marshall than Bershire, and Marshall is closer to Kentwood than Bershire, then Bershire is closer to:

  A.  Kentwood 
  B.  Marshall 
  C.  It is impossible to know 




Kentwood and Marshall are closer to one
another than they are to Bershire. But since there is no information
about how far Bershire is away from Kentwood or Marshall, it's
impossible to know to which it is closer. Therefore the correct answer
is C. 




3.  Which number completes this series? 99, 97, 95, __, 91, 89, 87

  A.  95 
  B.  94 
  C.  93 
  D.  92 




Each of these numbers is equal to the previous number in the series, minus 2. Therefore, the correct answer is 93, or C.





4.  Which rectangle is bigger, the yellow one or the pink one?

  A.  The pink rectangle 
  B.  The yellow rectangle 
  C.  They are the same size 




The yellow rectangle is larger than the pink rectangle, so the correct answer is B.





5.  Shirts
on sale for 1/2 off have a red tag. Shirts on sale for 1/4 off have a
blue tag. Stephen bought two redtagged shirts originally priced at $10
each, and one bluetagged shirt originally priced at $16. How much did
he spend before taxes?

  A.  $22 
  B.  $26 
  C.  $29 
  D.  $36 




Stephen bought two redtagged shirts that were $10 a piece, but they
were selling for 1/2 off, or $5. Therefore, Stephen spent $10 total for
two redtagged shirts. He bought only one blue tagged shirt, originally
priced at $16. If it was 1/4 off, that is the same as saying it was 3/4
of the total price = 3/4x16 = $12.00. All in all then he spent $10 on
redtagged shirts and $12 on bluetagged shirts, for a total of $22.00,
or answer A. 




6.  Which
object will fall faster when dropped from the top of a building in
normal weather conditions? An 8 x 11 piece of paper or a peanut? Both
weigh the same amount.

  A.  The piece of paper 
  B.  The peanut 
  C.  It's impossible to know 




The paper will encounter more resistance than will the peanut, and so it will fall more slowly. The correct answer is B.





7.  What is another word for irksome?

  A.  Confused 
  B.  Tiresome 
  C.  Motivating 
  D.  Kind 




Another word for irksome, meaning irritating to the point of tedium or boredom, is tiresome, so the correct answer is B.





8.  What comes next in the sequence?

  A.  
  B.  
  C.  




The progression from one figure to the next is the addition of 1/2 of
the previously added box. So the first figure is one box; the second
figure is the first box plus a box 1/2 of its size; the third figure is
the previous two boxes plus a box 1/2 of the last added box's size.
Therefore, the final figure (the question mark) should be the third
figure plus a box 1/2 of the last added box. The correct answer is B. 




9.  Marts are twice as long as Mops. Mops are three times as long as Worbs. That means that:

  A.  Worbs are six times as long as Marts 
  B.  Marts are six times as long as Worbs 
  C.  Marts are eight times as long as Worbs 
  D.  Worbs are eight times as long as Marts 




Mops are three times as long as Worbs, or Mops = 3xWorbs.
Marts are twice as long as Mops, or Marts = 2xMops.
Therefore, if you plug in 3xWorbs for Mops, you get: Marts =
2x(3xWorbs) = 6xWorbs. This is equivalent to saying that Marts are six
times as long as Worbs, or B. 




10.  The
deli sells beef on Tuesdays for 50% off and ham on Wednesdays for 40%
off. If ham is $2.50 per pound and beef is $2.00 per pound, then which
is cheaper: a pound of ham on Wednesdays or a pound of beef on
Tuesdays?

  A.  The ham 
  B.  The beef 
  C.  They are the same price 




A pound of ham on Wednesday is equal to the
regular price of ham ($2.50 per pound) minus the discount($2.50 x
0.40). This is the same as saying that the price = $2.50  (0.4 x 2.50)
= $2.50  $1.00 = $1.50. For beef, the normal selling price is $2.00.
If it is 50% off the price on Tuesdays, then this is the equation =
$2.00  (0.5 x 2.00) = $2.00  $1.00 = $1.00. Therefore, the beef is
cheaper, or B. 




11.  The line is longer in which image?

   A 
   B 
   They are the same length 




When the circles are placed at the ends of the
line, as in figure B, it can have the visual effect of making the line
look longer than it actually is. The opposite is true when the circles
are placed within the line, as in figure A. But the two lines are the
exact same length, so the correct answer is C. 




12.  Alphabetize the following words: Kensington, Kempthorn, Kirkwood, Kentfield.

  A.  Kirkwood Kensington Kempthorn Kentfield 
  B.  Kensington Kempthorn Kirkwood Kentfield 
  C.  Kempthorn Kensington Kentfield Kirkwood 




The first letter (K) is the same for all four
names. The second letter (E) is the same for three of the names but
different for the fourth (I in Kirkwood). Since (I) comes after (E),
Kirkwood is alphabetized last of the group. For the other three,
consider the third letter  the (M) in Kempthorn comes before the (Ns)
in the other two, Kensington and Kentfield. Then to determine the order
of the last two, note that the fourth letter of Kensington is an (S)
where as the fourth letter of Kentfield is a (T). Therefore, Kensington
should be alphabetized before Kentfield. The correct answer is C. 




13.  Each of these boxes is filled with tiny marbles of identical size and shape. Which of them contains the most marbles?

   A 
   B 
   C 
   D 




The box with the greatest volume will contain
the most marbles. Volume can be determined by multiplying length and
width and height. Box A has a volume of 8x4x2 = 64. Box B has a volume
of 6x5x2 = 60. Box C has a volume of 10x1x1 = 10. Finally, Box D has a
volume of 5x8x2 = 80. Therefore, Box D contains the most marbles and
the correct answer is D. 




14.  Which chair could fit under this table?

  A.  
  B.  
  C.  Either one could fit under the table 




Eyeballing it, you can see that Chair A is too tall, but Chair B will fit. Therefore the correct answer is B.





15.  The opposite of acute is:

  A.  Severe 
  B.  Incisive 
  C.  Dull 
  D.  Flamboyant 




The opposite of the word acute, meaning sharp or finely tuned, is dull, so the correct answer is C.





16.  Which image is not like the others?

   A 
   B 
   C 
   D 




The ball and the halfcircle in figures A, B,
and D are on opposite sides of the image (the lefthand side and the
righthand side). In image C, they are on the same side of the image
(the lefthand side). Therefore, the correct answer is C. 




17.  On
Monday, Kelly ran onehalf as fast as she normally does, and twice as
fast as she did last Saturday. If she runs 4 miles per hour normally,
how many miles per hour did she run on Saturday?

  A.  1 
  B.  4 
  C.  8 
  D.  16 
  E.  32 




If Kelly normally runs 4 miles per hour, then
on Monday Kelly ran onehalf as fast, or 2 miles per hour. But then on
Monday she ran twice as fast as she did last Saturday which means that
her speed last Saturday = 1/2 the speed she ran on Monday, or 1/2x2
miles per hour. Therefore, on Saturday she ran 1/2x2 = 1 mile per hour.
The correct answer is A. 




18.  Three
identicallysized balloons are filled up with different amounts of air.
Which of the three balloons, shown below, would be hardest to pop with
a pin?

  A.  
  B.  
  C.  




The balloon that is filled with the most air
will be easiest to pop with a pin. Therefore, the one that would be
hardest to pop is the smallest one, or C. 




19.  List the following words alphabetically: heart, nose, head, hair.

  A.  Hair Heart Nose Head 
  B.  Hair Head Heart Nose 
  C.  Nose Hair Heart Head 




To alphabetize, look at the second and third
letters. The (A) in hair is earlier in the alphabet than is the (E) in
heart or head, or the (O) in nose (the (E) in heart and head comes
before the (O) in Nose). To order head and heart, compare the (D) in
head to the (R) in heart; (D) comes before (R) in the alphabet and
therefore the correct ordering is the one shown in answer B. 




20.  Once the car starts moving, which wheel will travel more ground?

  A.  The front wheel 
  B.  The back wheel 
  C.  Neither  they will cover the same distance 




The back wheel will make fewer revolutions
than the front wheel. However, each wheel will have traveled the same
number of miles. Therefore, the correct answer is C. 




21.  What means the opposite of timid?

  A.  Aspiring 
  B.  Bold 
  C.  Shy 
  D.  Indecisive 




Another word for timid is shy, meaning fearful or hesitant. That means bold would be the opposite. The correct answer is B.





22.  Which of the images below is a perfect square?

   A 
   B 
   C 
   D 
   E 




Eyeballing it, you can see that image A is the square with identical length and height, and so the correct answer is A.





23.  Organize these words into two logical groups: nail, fish, hammer, pet, tool, cat, dog.

  A.  Nail, hammer, tool, fish Pet, cat, dog 
  B.  Nail, tool, hammer Fish, cat, dog, pet 
  C.  Nail, fish, cat Pet, dog, tool, hammer 
  D.  Hammer, tool, dog Nail, pet, cat, fish 




The two logical groups are animals (pet, cat, dog, fish), and tools (nail, hammer, tool). Therefore, the correct answer is B.





24.  Which circle is bigger?

  A  
  B  
  C.  They are the same size 




The V shape gives the illusion of depth. An
image showing two objects of the same size (as these are), but at
different distances away (from a definitive boundary) usually indicates
that the object that is farther away is, in reality, larger than the
object that is closer. But if you look closely, that's not true in this
case. The circles are the same size, so the correct answer is C. 




25.  Mary
loved pink flowers more than she loved red ones. She didn't like orange
flowers at all, and while she liked yellow flowers, she couldn't say
that she really loved them. Which of these is true?

  A.  She liked red flowers less than orange flowers 
  B.  She liked yellow flowers more than red flowers 
  C.  She liked pink flowers more than yellow flowers 
  D.  She liked orange flowers more than pink flowers 




Mary liked yellow flowers but didn't love
them; however, she did love pink and red ones  pink more than red.
Thus far, the order of her preference is: pink, red, yellow.
But Mary liked orange least of all, which means the new order is: pink, red, yellow, orange.
This
means that she liked red more than orange (which makes option A not
true). She liked yellow less than red (which makes option B not true).
She liked pink more than yellow, which makes option C true, and she
liked orange less than any of the flowers, which makes option D not
true. Therefore, the correct answer is C. 




26.  Which color is there more of?

  A.  Yellow 
  B.  Purple 
  C.  Neither  there is the same amount of yellow and purple 




Eyeballing it, you can see that there is more purple than yellow, so the correct answer is B





27.  Kip
was on his way to class. He was 5 minutes late leaving and then was
stuck in traffic for 10 minutes. He ran into a friend just before
arriving at class and talked with her for 13 minutes. How many minutes
late was he to class?

  A.  10 
  B.  15 
  C.  23 
  D.  28 




Kip was 5 minutes late at first, and then he
was stuck in traffic for 10 minutes, making him a total of 15 minutes
late. Then he was delayed an additional 13 minutes, for a total of 28
minutes. The correct answer is D. 




28.  Which is the odd one out?

   A 
   B 
   C 
   D 




The ends of thunderbolts A, B, and C are all
pointing in the same way (from upper left to lower right). But D is
actually a flipped version of the rest (pointing from upper right to
lower left). 




29.  Organize these words into two logical groups of two: wish, search, hope, look.

  A.  Wish, search Hope, look 
  B.  Wish, hope Search, look 
  C.  Search, hope Look, wish 
  D.  Wish, look Search, hope 




Search and look are both verbs that describe
trying to find something. Wish and hope are both words that describe
positive anticipation for the future, so the logical grouping is found
in B. 




30.  Which staple fits best into this stapler?

  A.  
  B.  
  C.  




Eyeballing it, you can see that the first staple A is the only one small enough to fit, so the correct answer is A.





31.  The opposite of pronounced is:

  A.  Subtle 
  B.  Caring 
  C.  Picturesque 
  D.  Stylish 




The opposite of pronounced, meaning obvious or prominent, is subtle, so the correct answer is A.





32.  Which of these cans is not like the others?

   A 
   B 
   C 
   D 




In all but one of the cans the ball is off to
one side. D is the only can in which the ball is nearly in the middle,
so the correct answer is D. 




33.  Half of Miks are Maks. Onefourth of Maks are Mokes. If Kerry has 400 Miks, how many Mokes has he got?

  A.  50 
  B.  100 
  C.  200 
  D.  300 




Kerry has 400 Miks. Since half of Miks are
Maks, Kerry has 200 Maks. If 1/4 of Maks are Mokes, then Kerry has
1/4x200 = 50 Mokes. Therefore, the correct answer is 50, or A. 




34.  You
want to make a temporary step stool to reach a high shelf in a library.
You have these three books to use. How should you stack them to best
ensure your safety?

  A.  Book 2 should be on the bottom, book 3 on the top 
  B.  Book 1 should be on the bottom, book 2 on the top 
  C.  Book 3 should be on the bottom, book 2 on the top 
  D.  Book 2 should be on the bottom, book 1 on the top 




The most stable step stool can be made by
putting the largest book on the bottom as a base and the smallest book
on the top. Therefore, the correct answer is A. 




35.  Which of the following character strings is the closest match to 8,392,211,109?

  A.  8,382,311,119 
  B.  8,3925211,129 
  C.  8,39,2211,208 
  D.  8,329,211,108 




The answer to question 35 is B.
Try reading each of the answer options not as numbers, but rather as a
string of characters; when you do so, you will find that B has the
fewest mismatches, position for position, in the string of characters.

Therefore, the correct answer is A, or 3. 




37.  Which of the central circles is bigger?

  A.  A 
  B.  B 
  C.  They are the same size 




The smaller circles surrounding the center
circle in image B give the illusion that the center circle is actually
larger than it is. In A, the circles surrounding the center circle are
much larger than they are in B. Therefore, in contrast, the centrer
circle A looks smaller than the center circle B, when in actuality they
are the same size, so the correct answer is C.

which pulley would lift the weight farthest off the ground?

  A.  Pulley A 
  B.  Pulley B 
  C.  They will have lifted the weight the same height 




When both pulleys are moving the same number
of revolutions per minute, pulley A is actually pulling more rope
upward per minute. Therefore, the weight in pulley A would be lifted
further off the ground, and the correct answer is A. 




46.  All booms are moons. If all moons are swoons, then all booms are swoons.

  A.  True 
  B.  False 
  C.  It's impossible to know 




If all booms are moons and all moons are swoons, then all booms must be swoons. Therefore the correct answer is True or A.

2/3rds of the way between 100 and 150. This is equivalent to a scale
reading of 130. Therefore, the correct answer is B. 




48.  Two
trains were traveling in opposite directions, moving away from one
another. One train was moving at 5 miles per hour. The other train was
moving at 6 miles per hour. They were 5 miles apart to begin with.
After two hours, how far apart were they?

  A.  16 miles 
  B.  27 miles 
  C.  35 miles 
  D.  60 miles 




After one hour, they were 5 + 6 = 11 miles
farther away from one another. After two hours, they were another 11
miles apart, for a total of 22 miles apart in 2 hour's time. This is in
addition to their initial distance of 5 miles apart, making a total of
27 miles, or B. 




49.  Which image completes the circle?

  A. 

  B. 

  C. 

  D. 





Eyeballing it, you can see that Answer A is the one that, when put together with the graphic, makes a complete circle.





50.  The
greens are playing the blues. The greens have won more games than the
blues. If the blues win this game, then which of the following cannot
be true?

  A.  The blues have won more games than the greens 
  B.  The greens have won more games than the blues 
  C.  The greens and blues have won the same number of games 
  D.  The reds have beaten both the greens and the blues 




The greens have won more games than the blues,
which means that if the blues win the next game, they will have won one
in addition to their previous number. At most, they will have won the
same number of games as the greens. Therefore, they cannot have won
more games than the greens and the correct answer is A. 




51.  If all Laps are Lops, all Lops are Loops, and all Loops are Lups, then which of the following is not true?

  A.  All Laps are Loops 
  B.  All Loops are Laps 
  C.  All Laps are Lups 
  D.  All Lops are Lups 




If all Laps are Lops, and all Lops are Loops,
then all Laps are Loops (so A is true). Now, if all Loops are Lups,
then all Laps are Lups (so C is true). Now if all Lops are Loops and
all Loops are Lups, then all Lops are Lups (so D is true). The only one
that is not true is B  so this is the correct answer. 




52.  Which side of the teetertotter will hit the ground first?

  A.  The left side 
  B.  The right side 
  C.  The teetertotter won't move 
  D.  They will hit at the same time 




The heavier side will fall to the ground faster than the lighter side. Therefore, the correct answer is the right side or B.





53.  What is another word for late?

  A.  Incorrigible 
  B.  Hasty 
  C.  Silly 
  D.  Tardy 




Another word for late is tardy, so the correct answer is D.

was 1 street before Carey, 4 streets before Ellis, and 19 streets
before Jackson. How many streets apart were Ellis and Jackson?

  A.  9 
  B.  10 
  C.  14 
  D.  15 




Mason was 4 streets before Ellis and 19
streets before Jackson. This means that Ellis was 19  4 = 15 streets
before Ellis. They were 15 streets apart, or "D". 







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, highquality 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 testtaker seemed to answer questions correctly
in terms of categories such as mathematical, visual, verbal, and
logical. For example, researchers found that a testtaker who answers
the mathoriented 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 testtaker 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
hardtoassess 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
testtaker how high they scored on each of those scales relative to
other testtakers  thus yielding an accurate intellectual type.
With data from a largescale 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.
