That seemed to be what the IQTest.com test covered, though I'm not sure what you mean by "practical intelligence".

I dunno about a contest, but feel free to post a question. I enjoy logic puzzles. Probably why I'm so addicted to the Ace Attorney series.

RE: No religion
Curse you and your succulent temptations. What is this problem? Honestly I wouldn't even care about a competition, I rarely do, but I am curious about the problem itself. ^_^

I have no preference. You, Ceryle?

What's your IQ?

No idea, and I don't particularly care, either. Never bothered to find out, see no reason to do so.

In all truthfulness, I really don't think that IQ is a great measure of intelligence. Every time I've seen an IQ test, it's been more of a measure of the trivia you can recall at a moment's notice than your actual ability to reason and learn. But then, I've never taken an official IQ test. The only ones I've seen are online dealies that advertise prepaid cell phones at you while you answer questions. Maybe the actual ones are more well-made.

I took one IQ test and said I am too stupid to breathe!

RE: No religion
Lol @ Martin, that just reminded me of the time a friend of mine took a video game IQ test, you know the brain age games? and it said that he was as smart as a dog. ^_^ He didn't know how to play the game obviously, but it was still hilarious to see.

I prefer mental puzzles that do not revolve around a play on words to be honest. As the whole latent definition issue can be rather bothersome at times; especially when considering how vague a language truly is.

This. It's not the fault of the person taking the test that they didn't spot how your question was being deliberately misleading, especially when you put them on a timer and don't give them any warning.

RE: No religion
due to obvious constraints i wont give you a figure and the sequences are stupid to me so i;ll give you one based on being able to visualize the situation like ace attorney. there might be some translation errors so feel free to ask if something doesnt make sense

in a empty room a man was found who was hanged on a lamp, with his feet 1 meter of the ground. the windowles room was locked from the inside. the lock only has a keyhole from the inside . evenso there is no trace of a ladder or chest of some sorts, with which the man could hang himself to the lamp. additionally the rope was too short to lasso it. and only under the dead man's feet and the keyhole a pool of water was found.

question is was it murder or suicide and how was it executed.

this is quite a well known puzzle so you might already know the anwer but it to get us started.unbeliever proof your IQ i wont buy it till i see it. and despite it being the first it does have a high level. 3 out of 3 to be precise

RE: No religion
He got the rope wet, caused it to stretch. I think I recall this actually coming up in one of the Ace Attorney cases...
