Are there good IQ tests on the Internet?

There are many different IQ tests available on the Internet. How to know which one will give you a real result? In fact, it's very hard or not at all.

Tests available on the Internet usually do not give us enough information to be sure that the test meets all the necessary conditions to be considered a valid IQ test. In any case, each IQ test should be carried out in standardized terms, which means they are clearly defined and equal to all the standards, which in the case of online testing is very difficult to control.

The process of creating an IQ test is a complex and lengthy one that requires a lot of strict rules to be followed. For example, it would be as culturally neutral as possible. This means that the results of the test should be less affected by cultural affiliation and pre-education, so it is considered that tests without numbers and words are more culturally impartial. The test should also be fully standardized, i.e. tested in large populations, and then adjusted and matured for years.

If you want to take the best test currently available, you will need to come to our testing session. Mensa always tries to have the best test that is currently available, and each test is conducted by an authorized psychologist who is the only one who can evaluate the tests and have insight into the results (Mensa is only provided with a list of candidates who have fulfilled the membership criteria).

If you still want to solve the test on the Internet for fun, we suggest an online IQ test created by Mensa Norway, which is also published on the Mensa International website (

If you get a result above 120 on the Norwegian IQ test, we suggest coming to a real testing session.

And just a little note about the score -> if someone says IQ is 120 or 150 or 170, it just doesn't mean anything. Different tests have different statistical parameters, more specifically standard deviations, and cannot be compared directly. That means, for example, that the IQ of 148 on a test that was once used by Mensa Croatia corresponds to 131 on the test we use today. The difference is only in the mentioned statistical parameters, but the crucial thing is that in both cases, the result is the top 2% of the whole population.
