I think its pretty flawed. I did half the Questions properly and purely guessed the other half and I got 115. I have done similar ones online and scored 130+ when concentrating.

I want to try the proper IQ tests but don't have the time. Maybe I will someday.

100 is average; That is, average based on how smart everyone is in the world classified by peoples age.
As it says, when you meet someone about your age you can assume that you are about 36% smarter than him.

Grrr... IQs are not percentages, they are quotients. That is, they are a ratio between the subjects mental age and their actual chronological age.

Furthermore, any online test one does for this are complete bunk.

Well... most of the online tests appear to be capped at an IQ "result" of 155, and even when answering everything wrong deliberately, still yields a result of 120-ish... something is rather fishy IMO. ;)

About the only "test" close to what you can expect under rigorous IQ testing conditions would be the MENSA workout: http://www.mensa.org/workout2.php" target="_blank

I know IQs are not percentages! What I mean is that the score 136 is 36% bigger than 100.
272 is 36% bigger than 200.

Errm... you said:

You did make an attempt to correlate where an IQ of 136 being 36% greater than an IQ of 100... which as I've said, isn't.

Furthermore, now saying that the number 136 is 36% larger than than the 100 is hardly deep insight... I believe this should have been covered in Primary/Elementary school?
