What do you think? Is intelligence the deciding factor or is it education that decides your test score?

Probably both.<br />

Intelligence is a gift, but its not enough. You have to be disciplined and work hard to take full advantage. Don't rest on your laurels.

May I ask, what kinds of puzzles do you do?

Best Answer

The way it was explained to me is that many people with high IQs feel the need to exercise their brains via video games, puzzles, etc. So yes, you're probably quite intelligent, and your aptitude for puzzles may be how that intellect manifests itself.

Best Answer

I believe it's both! "Congratulations"!

Best Answer

Everyone has a skill with one thing or another (or several), i can solve logical puzzles very easily and have a high spacial awareness but a maths question beyond the basics can make my brain seize like a cheap computer. Good for you btw reading and puzzless keep the mind fresh and open to new learning.

So if you could, what kind of a tree would you be?

Best Answer

Congratulations. You are way brighter than me.

Best Answer

Never took the test. Probably a combination of both, but being good at puzzles usually means you have a logical and active mind.

Best Answer

A little bit of both mixed with some luck

It's probably a good indicator that you are pretty smart yes, but that's doesn't mean you're intelligent though. If you're great at puzzles and other left brained mental activities that isn't really a measure of intelligence in general. Regurgitating facts on a set day in an exam doesn't prove intelligence either. If you have a good balance of creativity, good social / relationship skills, common sense and an ability to use judgement, reasoning and understanding to solve problems then you're intelligent in my book. All of these are required to get along in life. I know plenty of so called intelligent people who score highly at mensa tests and educational achievements (degree's / diploma's etc) but severely lack social skills and the ability to get themselves ahead in careers for example. An ability to deal with people / relate using emotional intelligence is also important.
