So you think you're smart? Let's find out how smart you really are. Don't worry, there is no need to feel embarrassed or smug about your IQ. However, I did find that taking this test was very humbling. Dr. Reichel's IQ Test HD for iPad (there is an iPhone/iPod touch version too) is very well done. You should plan for about 45 minutes to get through the whole test and let's just say I was quickly reminded of what it was like taking tests in grade school. The clock is ticking and you have a series of all kinds of tests to get through.

You will be tested on 

  • Comprehension
  • Linguistic Ability
  • Analytical Thinking
  • Logic and Reasoning
  • Abstract Thinking
  • Working Memory <-I suck at this
  • Quantitative Reasoning
  • Spatial Judgement
  • Processing Speed and Accuracy 

I found the test to be challenging, but fair and at the end I was slightly disappointed in my score, but I did OK. You have the option of having nice background music playing or not. The music is designed to relax you and help you think, but if that's not your thing you can turn it off. You do get to review the ones that you got wrong at the end. I suggest taking the test whenever you are fresh as opposed to the end of the day like I did. As I reviewed what I got wrong the next day, some of them were obvious to me and I thought to myself, "duh! You knew that one." My weakest area was the Working Memory section. I think I got them all wrong in that test and I don't think I would have done any better the next day 🙂

This App is well executed and while it was grueling taking it I actually want to try it again. Also if you've got one of those "know-it-alls" in your midst, this will at least keep them busy and quiet for 45 minutes. 🙂 I'd also be willing to bet money that they don't do as well as they think they would.

The App worked perfectly and I can't find anything wrong with it besides the hard questions. LOL
