About This Quiz

There have been many scientific studies that have looked at connections between elevated intelligence and specific behaviors or traits in people. After doing a thorough assessment of the literature, we have come up with a series of questions that are sure to narrow in on your exact intelligence quotient (IQ). So, while it may seem that the questions we are about to ask you are pretty random, know that each one is connected to a result from a study of some kind.

For example, the time you go to bed and when you wake up will point to a certain IQ score. When you combine that with results from questions that explore how well you do with changes and how open you are to new ideas, we start to really focus in on a specific number. Physical characteristics like how tall you are and your body type will also point in a particular direction. Even how much you like to lounge on the couch and whether or not you tend to worry will help us to deliver a more exact result.

We're confident in the accuracy of this quiz. What we really want to know is, how confident are you in your intelligence? Your answer to that specific question will tell us a lot.
