Are You Smart Enough For These High Paying Jobs?

We all know that technology and robotics are popular fields right now that don’t show any sign of slowing down. With artificial intelligence, machine learning, virtual reality, augmented reality, robotics and other technologies becoming the everyday norm (think about the mini computer, aka phone, that you might be looking at this on), it is no surprise that people predict these are the high-paying jobs of the future. However, to understand such complex topics one needs to have a high IQ. Is your IQ high enough for one of these high paying jobs? Find out here.

According to CNBC (2017), who discussed this topic with experts such as, Jack Ma (Chairman of Alibaba Group), Eric Schmidt (chairman of Alphabet Inc.), Bill Gates (Microsoft co-founder), and Mary Barra (General Motors CEO); the four major high paying fields are: 1. data analytics, 2. science, engineering and economics, 3. coding, and 4. liberal arts. 

So what IQ do people in these fields have? According to an article entitled, “Engineer vs engineer: Who has the higher IQ?” by Jeffrey Bausch at on June 4th, 2012, those who study Mathematics have an average IQ of 129, with those who study computer science not falling far behind with an average IQ of 128.5, they are followed by electrical engineers and economists (average IQ equals 126), and mechanical engineers (average IQ equals 125.5).

How much money can these high IQ jobs make you? According to, data analysts can make up to $82,140 per year, while those in the more complex field of data science can make up to $125,324 per year. Senior Systems Engineers can make $101,000 per year and economist can make $133,566 per year. Test your IQ now to see if you have what it takes for these high paying jobs.

About the Test My Metrics IQ Test:

We developed our Professional IQ Test after extensive study into the latest intelligence research and IQ measurement methods. Our goal was to develop an accurate, valid, reliable IQ test that was Culture-fair and could easily be given online.

The TMM IQ Test is based on a classic intelligence assessment called Raven’s Progressive Matrices. Raven’s Progressive Matrices (RPM) was originally developed by John C. Raven in 1936 and is still widely used today. It is a nonverbal test, meaning test takers do not need to respond verbally. Therefore, the test is suitable for a broad age range of test takers, from 5-year-olds to the elderly. Since RPM assesses non-verbal aspects of intelligence, it can also be applied to various cultures without requiring any changes. Finally, the test is easy to administer and score.

The questions on the test all consist of a 3×3 matrix. Each matrix is missing an element in the lower right corner. Test takers must choose which image is the missing element in the matrix from 8 possible answers.
