Intelligence Quotient

First tested by a school counsellor at the age of 13 and I was given an IQ score of 153. More recently, since completing university, I have scored 34 out 36 on Raven's Advanced Progressive Matrices, at age 43, during testing by an ACT Government Department, the Office of Training and Adult Education. This was completed within the 40 minute time limit. This has proved a difficult test to convert to a standard IQ score but the Prometheus web site converts it by stating a standard deviation equates to 4 points,  a population mean of 18 and an age adjustment, for my age at the time, of one standard deviation should be added to the score. This would mean an IQ of 175. This seems to be a severe exaggeration of the score however and I believe my true IQ, in the light of other results is probably around  the 160 mark, based on an IQ standard deviation of 15 (close to usual SD when IQ scores are mentioned). 

IQ scores are of course dependent on the size of the standard deviation used and as such a number can be quite misleading . In the case of MENSA, where the scores often refer to their tests with a standard deviation of 24 my score of 160 would be 196. Such a test does of course provide a better spread of scores and discrimination between individuals but technically the entry level for MENSA is two standard deviations above the mean, an IQ score of 148 on a test with a standard deviation of 24 is still the same level of intelligence as an IQ score of 130 on a test with a SD of 15.   The standard deviation of around 15  that is usual when comparing estimated IQ for historic figures for example, and indeed MENSA accepts entry based on many such tests with similar standard deviations.
