someone posted an online IQ test couple of weeks ago. I found a different IQ test, it only takes 20 minutes. [url]www.ntu.edu.sg/home/czzhao/iq/test.htm[/url]

Man, those are some [i]weird[/i] pattern tests!

159 Guess I've lost a couple points since high school. Hint: questions 26-29 are analogies, not sequential 1-2-3-4 patterns. I.e., 1 is to 2 as 3 is to 4.

PS... I missed 15, 18, 24, & 30. 15: I'm having problems with this; [b]does anybody see the pattern here?[/b] 18 & 30: I see where I messed up. 24: I kind of see, but I think having the triangles filled is a little misleading.

the only pattern I can make of 15 is that no two symbols are next to each other which would make the answer "C"

Yeah, I think that's it. Thanks! I can forget about it now. [:)]

117 [:(] Just because I couldn't read 26-33. The dividing line of the question and the answers was weird. Once I read the answers, I could see where I messed up. Damn it!

Congrats!
Didn't get #8. For #24 I picked c (still haven't "gotten" this one). For #28 I picked c and e. -Troy

I had to think a long time about #28. I finally decided that somehow a & d were more similar to the given shapes than c & e, despite the fact that the triangle & square were in a different configuration. #8 was the first one that made me stop & think; I just happened to see 63=8x8-1 and 8=3x3-1. And 3968 looked in the ballpark of 63*63-1. #24 is really odd. I picked c, also, because the other ones made even less sense to me. I have a wild guess about this: it's a Fibonacci sequence in the number of lines necessary to draw each object (1, 1, 2, 3). If that's really the pattern, then the fact that the triangles are filled in makes it really confusing. What do you think?

Hmm, would be interesting to take a more comprehensive test, that has word problems and such. This just tests your ability to recognise patterns (and a little bit of math in the beginning).

i'll try to explain #24, it's not a fibanocci number. the first graph of the problem shows 3 lines followed by 3 empty circles, if you notice there's nothing going through the lines. move to the next one, you see 3 lines with 3 little dashes going across, which tells me that the next graph should have something inside of it, and the only thing that has something going through it are the 3 triangles, you couldn't use answer A because it didn't follow the pattern. hope this explains it

144 I left a few blank with 8 minutes to spare. Hey, it's 11:30 pm, I'm at work, and my wife expects me home soon.... So sue me! [:)]

Hmm, I wonder if the script on the page bases your result on how many you got right of those you answered, or on how many you got right of the total number of questions asked?

I'm going to sue the webmaster because I scored a 26. I only scored so low because the test is too Eurocentric! [>(]

Thanks; that makes a little more sense now. It still seems more like it belongs in the analogy section (26-33), though, because it's more like "line is to shape as crossed line is to filled shape" instead a sequence. The rest of 17-25 were all pretty clear sequences. Maybe I'm just a sore loser [;)].
