In 1976 I took the Army entrance exam and scored a gt score of 130 at age 17 and one month. Does anybody know what that is for an IQ score.

I have heard that age plays a factor in the IQ scoring. Is this true?

Yes. When you've completed a proper IQ test, the test results are converted into an IQ using a method that takes your age into consideration.

For example the UK National IQ Test used the age table shown at <http://www.bbc.co.uk/testthenation/table.shtml>

This reminds me of one of the best puns ever... I was playing one of those 'Trivia' games with friends, back when I lived in Venezuela.

So, in Spanish, IQ is 'CI' (stands for 'Coeficiente Intelectual', but in Venezuela, 'CI' is commonly used as the acronym for the 'identification document' (CI stands for 'Cedula de Identidad', referring to the number of the document. (kind of the equivalent to US's SSN, or Canada's SIN)

So, one of the questions in the trivia game was 'What would you call someone with an IQ of 10?' ... But the idiot who was reading the question said: 'What would you call someone with a Document of Identity number 10?' (the question on the card said 'C.I.' referring to IQ, but the idiot who was reading the question 'expanded' the acronym and said 'cedula de identidad'

The answer was 'an idiot', which nobody possibly understood (because we weren't seeing the question)

Well, in the US, the joke is 'so-and-so is so old their SSN is 1'.

So the answer to the trivia question is: old.

Hahahaha... I had forgotten that detail, but now you reminded me that precisely, that was the only 'wild guess' that my team could come up with... 'Old' ... Then of course, it was not admitted as the right answer, since the card clearly said that the correct answer was 'an idiot' ... Hmmm, I wonder if it was not referring to the answer, but to what was the one who read the question!!

My GT score @ 18 was 124 and in the 5 percentile of all enlisted personnel.

I took 3 official IQ tests @ the age of 30/31 and scored a 135, 134, 137 respectively.

So if you have laid off of the alcohol and have no new cognitive impairments you should be in the high 130's or mid 140's.

GT score and IQ are very closely related...I would take a Mensa guess @ + or - 3%.

I went from the Army Reserve to the Regular Army to the Marines. I took the ASVAB at ages 17, 18 and 26. My GT scores were 114, 117 and 124 (Army). The Army required a GT of 110 for Officer Candidate School, Special Forces, and flight school, 115 for ROTC, and 120 for West Point Prep School. The Marines required 120 to be a navigator on a C-130 airplane. So it was certainly treated like an IQ but my score of 124 is way off from my Stanford-Binet I took at age 16 which was 108. If we take the difference between my S-B and my first GT score (6 points), then my IQ jumped from 108 to 118. I was going through a lot of cr-p during high school and it may be possible that my S-B reflected that, but I'm not sure if an IQ test score is reflective of emotional/mental states that are less than obvious. And IQ isn't supposed to change, right?

On the other hand...I saw an AFQT to IQ conversion chart. My 82 (GT 124) converts (apparently) to Cat 2, an IQ range of 106-118. So I possibly went from one end of my range to the other, which would seem plausible after several years of processing the issues I was dealing with in HS. My conclusion is that the issue of conversion is complex. The simple answer is to take three different IQ tests to get an average and call it a day.

I don't know about the Army portion. But any IQ type score of 120 and above is high. 121-128 is very high intelligence. 130+ is genius level all the way up to the super intelligent of 170 IQ. "Normal IQ" is 100.
