    I wanted to get a stomach bypass surgery and had to go to a pyschological evaluation. During the process I took a IQ test. I got IQ 84 and it said (this is basically learning difficulty). But I took online tests where I scored in the gifted range. I dont know if online tests are correct though. My genetic test also said I have high IQ in my genes. What do you think? As for academic achievement. I have a Matura (thats like High School Diploma which enables you to study at any austrian or german university). And first level diploma of law school from University of Linz.

    As for the online Test I took here is the reply of what they said

    Dear Svetozar,

    thank you for the additional information about your environment. If you experience a similar issue in the future, just let me know and I will take care of it.

    I cannot speak on behalf of any other online IQ test, as I don't have any knowledge of how they were designed, normed and deployed. As it is with most things online, some are good and some are not that good.

    Fiqure was normed on a large sample of people (more than 500) and correlates well with the golden standards of proctored I.Q. tests such as the WAIS-III PIQ and the Raven APM. It was created by a team of scientists covering areas such as Math, Psychology and Software Development.
    We are particularly proud to have psychologists and psychiatrists use our test in their professional environment, along with the majority of the active internet based high I.Q. societies. Their trust is especially important, since they all have reviewed our designing and norming process before they decided to work with us.

    If there is anything else I can assist with, I am always available.

    IQ is not based on genes only but also on environment. One can use the brain and the IQ will rise. IQ tests may be inaccurate when the participants lack the education to understand the questions or tasks, resp. when the wrong tests are applied. One can question their accuracy in general.

    You have to pay for it? There is a short free one though.

    I’m skeptical of some IQ tests on the internet. If the owner of the site is looking to increase traffic, the test may be skewed to give a high score. That’s because most people will not be bragging about getting a low score.

    You know the IQ doesn't mean much, right?

    People who make the most money aren't people with the highest IQs.

    Usually social intelligence rewards with the most money.
