    100% accurate. I'll never understand how the IQ test has become universally accepted as measuring 'intelligence' when all it is, is a multiple choice version of the little quizzes you find in newspapers and airport puzzle books - and proves only that you are good at number sequencing, anagrams and pattern recognition.

    It's another of those bizarre anomalies like BMI being used to dictate whether or not someone is fat - it has no use other than being a staistical predictor indicating a general trend, but has somehow become the de facto standard for measuring a metric.

    And before any of you wags start, my IQ has been measured four times since I was 18 (and gone up from 142 to 153 in that time - patent nonsense, as all it indicates is that I've got better at stupid quizzes, since anyone who knows me will attest to the fact that I have got stupider since then, not more intelligent) and my BMI is 21, despite being at least a stone and a half overweight still (it was 33 up until January), so it's not just sour grapes!

    Ha ha - spot on Leroy! They let me into MENSA only because I was good at IQ tests, not because I'm intelligent (however you want to define it).

    Can someone explain to me if ones IQ remains constant throughout adult life.........surely that would make a difference and indeed who's to say when any given individual is at the peak of their mental powers?

    Also, as we all know, intelligence and sound common sense are two very different things. The older one get's the more you realise this.......unfortunately.

    in theory it remains constant but, as Leroy has already pointed out, the results of the measurements can be skewed.

    Personally, I can't see the point of MENSA ;-)

    Bought a flat off a guy who was in MENSA - I have to say the quality of his junk mail was a cut above! So, maybe that's the point?

    What a coincidence! I've got an IQ of 21 and a BMI of 153
