Ever wondered how your results would turn out if you took an IQ test? The main purpose is to measure intelligence as the test focuses on a variety of skills and aspects.
According to IQ research, Australia is ranked #9 in the world IQ ranking, with an average IQ of 98. Take six-year-old, Joshua Madugula, for example. Considered as one of the smartest children in Australia, the Baulkham Hills boy has an IQ of 153, which is only a few points lower than Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking.
All IQ exams include mathematical skills, visual understanding, verbal skills, memory, analytical thinking, pattern recognition, and spatial orientation. For some people, knowing what level your IQ is at can help to boost confidence and morale, while others may have adverse effects on learning that one’s IQ square is below average. They may withdraw themselves from future motivation and prevent the opportunities for success. However, it is important to keep in mind that having a high or low IQ does not predict your outcomes in life.
Here are 5 reasons to take an IQ test right now.
