Have you ever wondered what IQ you need to do your dream job? If you have an IQ of 115 or above it is likely that you can do any job. The average person’s IQ falls within the range of 85-115, with people’s overall average IQ being 100. Therefore, only 15% of people have an IQ of 115 or above. According to Dr. Arthur Jensen an IQ above 115 means that a person has no restrictions on their capabilities to perform tasks. An IQ just above 115 seems to be enough to still possess important social skills while being able to grasp and discuss more complex ideas and thoughts of the future. College graduates typically have an IQ of 115, which may partially be why people who score 115 or above on IQ tests have more opportunities to work in various professions. People with an IQ of 101 tend to be clerical workers, sales workers, skilled workers, craftsmen, and foremen. People with an IQ of 104 tend to be managers and administrators. While people with an IQ of 112 tend to be professionals and technical workers. MDs, JDs, and PhDs tend to have an IQ of 125.

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.
