It’s called WAIS-IV and is administered by a psychologist
I think you will score decent. Take it, you seem inteligent enough.
Sure, if they’re offering it, why not? Is its a legitimate test? Maybe have your mom research it to see if it’s OK. The only problem is what if the results say you have a low IQ? Wouldn’t that upset you? I’m not saying you don’t seem intelligent, you may be very intelligent for all I know. I’m just saying can you handle the results, whatever they are, good or bad?
I took an IQ test (administered by a psychologist) at age 14-15 and got a score ”well above average”
It’s a professional IQ test
Well, then take it.
They might compare the results to see your evolution.
They said that they will do a psych evaluation
Any other thoughts?
IQ tests are used for diagnostics in determining intellectual disabilities, i.e. mental retardation. This is one example of why IQ test are administered in psychiatry.
They can also be used in educational environment to access students for gifted programs.
Nuero psychologist can use them in conjunction with a lot of other test to identify specific locations of brain legions and their impact on executive functioning.
So yeah, if you can find a good reason for taking it to help you in someway.
I have autism, its a Developmental disability
That’s an intellectual disability, its often used as a broader assessment but the IQ test is one component of the assessment.
It’s not an intellectual disability, google it
I think it’s associated in some cases with intellectual disability.
But overall its a neurodevelopmental diasease
I will guess your iq to be between 117 - 121
You can let us know
Why is your guess that
You are correct.
For many reasons. But because you seem smart and i like to guess stuff.
But doesn’t gifted iq mean 130+
Some studies have defined gifted as 120 + too.
But Iq is not everything. There are more accurate tests for intelligence, similar to a battery of tests for example, verbal reasoning, mathematical rationament, proccesing speed, spatio-temportal reasoning, decision making, and much more similar tests.
Plus creativity, motivation, intellectual curiosity, openness to new, and much more other traits are important too… (for succes in life)
Coping skills, inductive skills, thinking in a certain subtle way, attention to details and more others are extremely important too
