Okay, so only a little better than "normal" at 110. But I also had about 20 minutes to go. I get bored taking these tests. I either see it or I don't and I don't have much patience for working it out.

are there special interesting tests for people like us? i blame music videos, video games, and umm... steve ballmer for my short attention span

Real IQ tests are much much harder, not like this stupid one.

Also, some centers take 2 days to get a correct IQ figure...

FIrst, what do you define as "Real" IQ test? This one is as close as you can get to
Raven's Progressive Matrices test without being the real thing. Raven´s is known for being one of the best, if not the best, cultural neutral test to measure "intelligence" (intelligence is a disputed phenomenon, but if accepted there it is generally recognized that g-load is what you should measure).

And what is "Stupid" about this one? What are the criteria you use?

Intelligence is not cell cultures you need to cultivate before you measure it. Its mathematics.

My academic expierence teaches me that IQ tests take 2 whole days to give a correct figure.
