    Wouldn't the test for "musical IQ" be to measure ones ability to play music not listen to it? I mean, announcers have never described anyone in the stands has having any amount of "basketball IQ".

    But rather embarassed with the rest of it.
    75% on Melodic! Eek! :woot:
    And Mistuning was about 85%!
    Ouch. So I'm only 120 IQ. Bt that's obove 90% of people. Still not good enough for me. Feel suicidal now.

    "Real" IQ tests aren't measuring how good you are at creating an IQ test, they are measuring on how good you are at understanding what is going on in many different task categories. You certainly need to be smart to create an IQ test but it's goal is not to measure how good you are at creating one. To be good at playing an instrument also doesn't necessarily mean that you are good at understanding music in it's generell sense it means you can play an instrument well. You can also be very good at making connections with words or understand math very well and score good in an IQ test in these parts but that doesn't mean you have a high IQ.

    I did the test a month ago, i haven't taken a screenshot. Anyways, i'm not obligated to prove you what i scored and neither are you obligated to believe me. This post is not about ego stroking. In fact it only shows how inconclusive the test actually is. If you do the test, you'll probably realize that anyone with trained ears and a good relative pitch will score pretty high.

    Indeed.
    So why bother writing what you say you got.
    Chill, newb with high musical IQ score!
    Yet your post included your supposed score. :dunno:

    They asked at the end if I want to be in any future tests, but I didn't give my email because they already have too much info about me!
    Anyway. Thank you for posting the link! Enjoyed it!
    And I believe your score, don't worry.
    Done. Interested? Have you found the ratings buttons yet? lol.

    That doesn't imply i do it to stroke my ego, instead i do it to compare with the the rest of users and/or if for some reason anyone wants to know what i scored, so it's merely informative. It's up to you if you interpretate that as a pretentious statement. Glad you enjoyed it man!

    there must have been some kind of glitch with the website. before i could even take the test it went straight to final results for some guy named foster. i didn't realize it was possible to get a negative score.

    AAHHRRRGGG Our estimate of your Musical IQ is 112.

    those bastards, i lost some points because i wasnt sure after listening and forgot something

    two times i was even sure the test got it wrong. for example in one of the detuned music things, there were two examples that sounded better but were detuned, according to them.
    ahh fuck them lets make some agressive beats

    If this is Harvard, they did not get it wrong.
    There were some very subtle detunings there, regardless of what you thought sounded better to you personally.
    And the click/beat test? Very sneaky, unless you are a drummer or keyboard player who plays to click both live and in the studio.
    I say drummer or keys because we are the percussive rhythmic aspects of a band, and generally have to be tighter (or intentionally push/pull or drag!) when playing to click.
    And hopefully bass plays TO the drummer.
