Prices, Rules, Norms and Statistical Data for Dr Jason Betts IQ Tests          

 

1.         Submissions:   Send tests & Paypal payments to: 2017@psiq.org or www.paypal.me/jasonbetts.

            Email format:  Send the item number and answer on a new line inside the email; no attachments.

 

2.         Certificate Tests are $44 or $11 AUD by Paypal. Tests with less than 30 submissions are free.

            Please include all of your previous IQ tests and IQ scores as this helps calibrate the tests further.

 

3.         You must send government photo ID to register as a test taker of my tests to prevent test fraud.

            Your test email must also be validated by association with your ID on some trustworthy website.

 

4.         Only data from the first submission is used; only one submission is allowed for all tests. Outliers

            indicates the number of dat¾ that have been removed from the norming averages, not histogram.

 

5.         An IQ score certificate is sent out on the first norming estimated at 30 submissions and not before.

            The score on it is based on the norming data at that time; for current norms check back to this file.

 

6.         The Linear Fit (LF) are running estimations of each test and are not IQ results. They are a guide

            and cannot ever be used. Official IQ test results are only given after normings via one's certificate.

 

7.         There is only one correct and exact answer for every item. Ensure you spell it correctly to the letter.

            If the answer required is MICROS then MICRO and MICRON are wrong because you missed a clue.

 

8.         No communication about the answers will be entered into. My judgement is total, absolute and final.

            All persons are marked against the same answers, and in that regard, the same submitted IQ data set.

Betts' Law of IQ Testing:

(i) One should spend a total of one hour for every item that is on any high range IQ test; and, (ii) doubling that

amount of time will result in an increase of ten percent in the raw score of the number of items marked correct;

(iii) the amount of time a test designer should spend on each item is two hours per item on the whole test; and,

(iv) an increase in one's TrueIQ is expected to be 1 IQ point per year if the person is constantly taking IQ tests.

(v) the increment of IQ points per number of items right should be at least 1 for every SD of IQ range possible.

TrueIQ

 

Different people have different types of intelligence and will perform differently on different types of test.

I am confident that my four best tests (Lux25, WIT, Mathema, Asterix) genuinely collectively measure g.

Your TrueIQ (g) is probably a combination of scores gained from a variety of IQ test types, for example:

Asterix (mathematical), Mathema (verbal/numerical), WIT (logical/reasoning) and the Lux25 (variety).

 

 

DEFINITION

 

TrueIQ is the average general IQ of a person in all general and everyday situations. It is the average of all

of their types of intelligence (spacial, numerical, verbal, reasoning, symbollic, et cetera) for all of their life.

Generally, a person's TrueIQ will not change, however, an increase of 10% over 10 years is not unheard-of.

 

I will publish some data soon on TrueIQ, but so far it seems that many people whom have taken more than

20 tests from others may have a 20 or 30 point range from low to high will have only a 5 point range on my

tests, PLUS the average on mine is usually the same as the average of others' tests, to within 1 or 2 IQ points.

A TrueIQ certificate is issued for those that have taken these 4 tests and is a much stronger figure for your IQ.

Asterix*                                 FINAL NORM!

 

If you want to spend some thinking time then look at Asterix; this one can take you a week or so of spare time.

I describe it as mathematical and not just numerical as it contains many mathematical ideas, not just numbers.

In some ways, the simplicity of Asterix gives it great power and elegance while remaining totally culture-fair.

Canopus

 

Canopus is a very difficult test. One would be better doing the Lux25 or the EZIQ tests first for practise.

The theme for Canopus is 'the heavens' and it is combination of word games, numbers and encryptions.

Circle is based on the theme of circles and is science and mathematically-based with a touch of mythology.

It is reasonably straightforward and is mostly of verbal logical-inductions with some simple mathematics.

EZIQ

 

This is a fun little test and a good place to start - three sections of ten questions, nice and easyish.

The words are simple, the patterns are clear and visual and the associated words are very common.

The EZIQ is probably my easiest word test and the best one for the non-genius to cut their teeth on.

Flux

 

Flux is a new concept test, similar to Godel in question style in using the format of a mathematical function.

The object of the question is stated and then the nature of the core concept is stated in brackets, before the

first term and starting place for the 'flow of time' to be applied - how does each term change over time?

Hiqu is a beautiful test of metaphor and poetry using the Japanese Haiku format with the last word missing.

The syllables of each phrase are 5-7-5 and thereby telling you the number of syllables contained in the answer.

Search for 'Zen clarity'. Sometimes it is the obvious word that is correct and othertimes it may be the allusiory.

Interrobang

 

This is a fun little thinking test where the answers (except one) can be seen on a standard English keyboard.

This means they are either capital letters, punctuation or symbols of some kind. It is very logical and accurate.

As each symbol can only be used once it acts as an internal clue system as many questions may point similarly.

L'Orange

 

L'Orange is a fun little test with an orange theme of 16 simple logical inductions based on high school topics.

It is reasonably straighforward but highly complex in it's reasoning, requiring both lateral and logical thinking.

The answers are factual, neat and tidy and somewhat elegant. I am very sure you will enjoy researching for it.

Lux25                                     FINAL NORM!

 

Many people can do the Lux25 in 10 minutes and score well, however, time is required for items 11 to 15.

It is quick because it tests by education, knowledge and thinking as well as patterns and basic word-logics.

It uses classes (both common and alien) and also has higher-order of complexity verbal logical-inferences.

PsiQx

 

This is a test for psychic's Psi-Q, using the same statistical rarity for IQ except based on probability and not IQ.

Obviously as a once-of event this is for interest only and has no statistical thoroughness or confidence in any way.

However, it may be of some interest as a remote viewing or ESP exercise. It seems that IQ does not make psychic!

World Intelligence Test       FINAL NORM!

 

WIT can also be done in a very short amount of time; the second highest score of 33/40 (175 IQ) was achieved

in only 5 hours, and this is okay because this person has several scores over 172. The top scorer for WIT spent

many hours researching it and achieved 35/40 (181 IQ), having achieved several test scores over 190 IQ. If you

want a quick test that you think you can easily beat, try WIT. The reason it works is because it is a test of logic

and reasoning, using IQ to sort out what question it is and what the answer is NOT. All items have been solved.

Zen is a simple logical set of four koans in Latin based on the four elements.

Once understood, the questions present as "this causes this as that causes that".

Two submissions are recommended to achieve your potential on these problems.

Jason Betts' Test Concept and Personal Innovations

The best qualities to look for in high-range tests is accuracy, quickness/efficiency and elegance of concept.

 

¥ TrueIQ - a collective measure of overall IQ performance.

¥ bysl3x - created the AB¥CD form to denote: A is to B, as C is to D.

¥ Asterix - created a test with using only one character, the Asterix (*).

¥ Comix - created a new format { A |  B ( B&C ) C | D } with shared clues.

¥ Interrobang - created a test with all answers being only of one character in length.

¥ Godel - created a new format A : B = f{question} to describe divergent negative space.

¥ Alchemix - first to use the triple colon (:::) in searching for the next sequential or missing item.

¥ NIT - created the first test using numbers as item content as a common associations-class question.

¥ Zen - first person to use Latin translation as the whole of a test, which, funnily enough, seems to be working.

¥ Betts' Law - defined the relationship of score improvement as a function of time invested for high-range tests.

¥ use of IQ statistical rarity to measure PSI-Q in the same way, i.e. 1/1,000 event probability = 146 PSIQ sd 15.

 

 

How to answer some of Jason's extra-tricky cryptic logical inductions:

 

Ensure that the language and the context of the answer is consistant with the logic and phrasing of the question.

These questions are of the format A : B  ::  C : D,                 A is to B,  as C is to D       but with maybe 4 clues!

For example, PAPAW : LEMON  ::  ORANGE : ?               Papaya is a tint of Orange, as Lemon is of Yellow.

Another clue is number of letters: 5 : 5  ::  6 : 6, and finally, P/L are consonants, contra to O/Y being vowels.

 

001)     Ask, What do A and B have in common? This is the most important thing. List as many as you can!

010)     Then work out the process of going from A to B. Does this process relate to C in ANY way?

011)     If yes, can this process be applied to C? If yes, does answer D relate to B in any way? (Clue?)

100)     Do this for all possible solutions of how A and B relate, and then test them against C to D.

101)     Assess each working answer for elegance, spelling, word play, symmetry, simplicity and patterns.
