Vocabulary
SubFacor IQ score = 151
Subscale percentile = 99.96

But I think this test is biased for people in my position because of its similarities to the LSAT which I did years ago and scored very highly on. Most of these questions can be learned in terms of the best strategy for answering them. Because of that, for example, I knew that the first thing you do in the reading comprehension section is read the questions, then the passage, etc.

Also, I basically read crap and haggle over technicalities of words for a living.

That's what I did - I "read" the passage and looked at the questions and then realized I'd just read the passage without actually retaining anything from it; too many years of skimming stuff on the internet.

I never took the SATs - the few schools I applied to only required the ACT, so I was all "yay" and just took that one.

You appear to have a good vocabulary. You know the meanings of most of the given terms, some of which are extremely advanced. Your excellent vocabulary can help you communicate and understand the written word.


129/97.

I took this although I'm not a native speaker. Those words were ridiculous; I just guessed half of them.

139, 99.something percentile (99.67?).

But, I probably don't deserve that score, considering what a dumb ass I am.

I took the test and scored 120-something, and in the 95th percentile. Then it was pointed out to me that two of the pages were antonyms. I went back and retook it, and when I got to the antonym pages, I realized I'd done them as synonyms the first time.

I didn't notice that until this post. .Went back and re-took it.

failing to read directions doesn't make up for lack of IQ points.
