## eMode IQ Scales

Your 4 Intelligence Scales

Now let’s look at the factors that contribute to you being a Visionary Philosopher with a 131 IQ score.

Based on the results of your test, Emode divided your scores into four distinguishable dimensions — mathematical intelligence, visual-spatial intelligence, linguistic intelligence and logic intelligence.

Here’s how each of your intelligence scores break down:

**Mathematical Intelligence**

You scored in the 90th percentile on the mathematical intelligence scale.This means that you scored higher than 80% – 90% of people who took the test and that 10% – 20% scored higher than you did. The scale above illustrates this visually.

Your mathematical intelligence score represents your combined ability to reason and calculate. You scored relatively high, which means you’re probably the one your friends look to when splitting the lunch bill or calculating your waitresses’ tip. You may or may not be known as a math whiz, but number crunching might come a little easier to you than it does others.

This is the kind of question that helped to determine your mathematical intelligence score:

A boy is 4 years old and his sister is three times as old as he is. When the boy is 12 years old, how old will his sister be? 16, 20, 24, 28, 32.

*answer: 20.The sister is (3 )three times older than her (4) four-year-old brother. Three times 4 is 12, in other words, when he is four, she is 12. Twelve years old is 8 years older than 4 years old, which makes her 8 years older than him. This never changes. Therefore, when he is 12, she is still 8 years older, or 12+8=20.*

*Flexing Your Math Muscles*

Like anything, keeping or improving your math talents requires practice. Here are some everyday mental exercises that could particularly helpful to you:

- Balancing your checkbook
- Figuring out your monthly budget
- Predicting what the change will be the next time you buy something
- Calculating your waitperson’s tip in your head

**Visual-Spatial Intelligence**

You scored in the 100th percentile on the visual-spatial intelligence scale. This means that you scored higher than 90% – 100% of people who took the test and that 0% – 10% scored higher than you did. The scale above illustrates this visually.

The visual-spatial component of intelligence measures your ability to extract a visual pattern and from that envision what should come next in a sequence. Your score was relatively high, which could mean that you’re the one navigating the map when you’re on an outing with friends. You have, in some capacity, an ability to think in pictures. Maybe this strength comes out in subtle ways, like how you play chess or form metaphors.

Here’s the type of question that contributed to your visual-spatial intelligence score:

*The answer lies in recognizing not only the visual sequence of a square and then a line, but in the recognizing the solidity of the line in the first example and the broken quality of the line in the second example.*

*Vision Quest*

Like anything, keeping or improving your math talents requires practice. Here are some everyday mental exercises that could particularly helpful to you:

- Playing chess, or video games like Tetris
- Studying maps and become the navigator on your next trip
- Sculpting or photography

**Linguistic Intelligence**

You scored in the 90th percentile on the linguistic intelligence scale. This means that you scored higher than 80% – 90% of people who took the test and that 10% – 20% scored higher than you did. The scale above illustrates this visually.

Linguistic abilities include reading, writing and communicating with words. Emode’s test measures knowledge of vocabulary, ease in completing word analogies and the ability to think critically about a statement based on its semantic structure.

Here’s the type of question that contributed to your linguistic intelligence scale score:

Inept is the opposite of:

*Answer: Skillful.The answer is derived by prior knowledge that “inept” means “unskillful” (Oxford Concise Dictionary).*

*Word Power*

Like anything, keeping or improving your math talents requires practice. Here are some everyday mental exercises that could particularly helpful to you:

- Doing crossword puzzles
- Start reading just for fun
- Befriending your dictionary
- The next time something breaks, try reading the instruction book first

**Logical Intelligence**

You scored in the 100th percentile on the logical intelligence scale. This means that you scored higher than 90% – 100% of people who took the test and that 0% – 10% scored higher than you did. The scale above illustrates this visually.

Emode’s logical intelligence questions assess your ability to think things through. The questions determine the extent to which you use reasoning and logic to determine the best solution to a problem. Your logic score was relatively high, which could mean that when the car breaks down, your friends look to you to help figure out not only what’s wrong, but how to fix it and how you’re going to get to the next gas station.

Here’s the kind of question that contributed to your logical intelligence score:

If some Wicks are Slicks and some Slicks are Snicks, then some Wicks are definitely Snicks.

*Answer: FalseThe statement is false because while some Wicks might be Slicks, there is no conclusive proof that any of them might be Snicks.*

*Logic Lessons*

- Trying some brain teasers
- Throwing away the instructions and relying on instinct to fix something
- Playing chess

**What do all these percentiles mean?**

For each scale, Emode determined how many people received scores above and below yours. Your “percentile” represents what percentage of people scored lower than you. In other words, 90th percentile means you scored higher than 80 to 90% of people did.

How are the percentiles determined? These percentiles were determined based on the one million users who have already taken our test. We then adjusted these percentiles based on a nationally representative IQ distribution to make sure that no level of intelligence was over- or underrepresented in the analysis. Thus, the percentiles we present reflect your score compared with people in the United States in general.

**What factors helped determine my score?**

If your score isn’t as high as you thought it would be, remember that there are plenty of external factors that can affect your performance on the test. If you were tired, hungry or distracted, you might have scored lower than you expected because you were less able to concentrate.

Your level of formal education and your familiarity with taking these kinds of tests also influence how well you do. That’s part of the reason IQ tests aren’t a perfect measure of your intelligence. Your score would probably be quite different if the IQ test was designed to take into account your musical, artistic, emotional and social skills.

On their own, IQ scores can’t predict someone’s ultimate success or definitive potential for success. Many of the qualities that lead to great achievements are learned through culture, experience and schooling – not solely from doing well on an IQ test.

What your IQ test can help explain, however, is how your brain works best. By looking at the kinds of questions you answered correctly and the kinds of questions you answered incorrectly, we can tell you more about your intelligence type — the type that explains the kind of information that makes sense to your brain.
