    Exactly.

    And the ones not posting it, might be ashamed of how low it is. Conclusion: Everybody is stupid.

    No, self-selection bias.

    None of the accumulated data provided from posters on a forum will have any integrity.

    Does that answer your question?

    I think that's considered average. Below 100 is less than average, above is above average. I'm pretty certain that 100 is the baseline...it's all fairly arbitrary.

    outliers on the chart could cause the mean and the average to diverge.

    They design the test around a 100 point baseline. Whether or not it's actually the average, or mean for that matter, isn't the point.

    incorrect.

    I suggest you look up standard deviation and normal distribution.

    We're sort of speaking about different things. I know what a normal distribution is, what I'm saying is that when they design the test (and it's redesigned frequently as IQ tends to collectively change over time) they do so in a way that they hope the mean, mode and average is 100. If you score 100 you are considered exactly normal, no more, no less.

    The test doesn't look at other results to make the comparison, that's something we do. The test is flawed and so realistically the mean, mode and average are likely to be different from 100.

    Already nailed

    Much closer

    Being an ESE teacher I have a little practical experience. The Stanford test is set up with 100 as the baseline measure for "normal intelligence." "Normal intelligence" is considered to be any number within 2 standard deviations of 100 and the SD=15. Therefore normal intelligence is considered to be within the IQ range of 70 to 130. Above that school kids start getting recommended for Gifted programs. Below that, until recently they were considered to fall within a range of mental handicaps and before that they were labeled ********. Some psychologists still use terms like ******** but schools no longer do.

    The Stanford is widely considered outdated and the current version of the WISC is preferred. Also, IQ can be assessed through performance as well. It is not an indicator of academic success.

    Of course I'm contributing to a thread I should move to Foo so my performance IQ must be pretty low.

    Standard deviation in the 41 is pretty high.
