IQ Score of 157 Means High Intelligence?

IQ score of 157 is beyond a normal IQ score. See the IQ distribution on the IQ graph in this image.

You want to know, probably because you got this IQ score, or your friend got it. Your IQ is so close to Einstein's (160), regardless of the type of IQ test (Mensa, Progressive Matrices, Wechsler etc.) But before you start feeling like the whole world is in your hands, you have to know that IQ scores are not absolute scores that set Mr. A apart from Mr. B in a rigid fashion. What does this mean. An Intelligence Quotient score says:

this is your intelligence quotient on this intelligence domain alone or generally, right this instance

What it means?
It means that your IQ is subject to change at any point in time. You may take the same or similar test in the next 72 hours and score 129 on it. Say, you took Mensa, if you take Wechsler the next time you might score 147 even though, the two types of tests have high concurrent validity.

Your IQ of 157 does not guarantee practical wisdom. It doesn't guarantee solutions to daily life puzzles. It's just a figure and you are better off when creativity is involved.
It doen't mean you are clever, having a high Intelligence Quotient point of 157.

The distribution of this huge score on the IQ graph means that only some 10 or less than 10% of the population falls within this range: those of whom we call geniuses.

Your turn...
