    Actually could've scored higher if I was more "in-the-zone" that day. My results:

    119


    ...

    Oh how about trying this one as well? ;P .... http://www.elometer.net/

    Though I'm only a dabbler with zero actual serious study/lessons in the game of chess, which is why my score is pretty mediocre:

    I never play chess.




    Looked up elo ratings for chess, here's what wiki says:

    The United States Chess Federation (USCF) uses its own classification of players:

    2400 and above: Senior Master
    2200–2399: National Master 2200–2399 plus 300 games above 2200: Original Life Master
    2000–2199: Expert
    1800–1999: Class A
    1600–1799: Class B
    1400–1599: Class C
    1200–1399: Class D
    1000–1199: Class E
    800–999: Class F
    600–799: Class G
    400–599: Class H
    200–399: Class I
    0–199: Class J


    I was curious what are the typical scores. Found this, not sure if it's reflective of general players. It shows over 150K players, that seems like a lot.

    Found this on Reddit. Elo score percentile. Seems somewhat consistent with the distribution above. Average score here is a bit higher though.

    A score above 1350 gets you on the top 23.5%. A score above 1450 places you on top 14.5%. I think those who score over 1600 are hardcore players.

    He better score at least an 1800+ if he's calling himself a 'chessgenius'

    and it may be never end. What should I do now. (

    Btw, I am a chess player for my province in 2 years after leaving to Italia. However, I stopped playing 3 years ago. Because the Vietnamese community in my place prefer Chinese chess. LOL

    While we wait for chessgenius's elo chess ranking results, here is another mental ability result. This test is from Genesforgood.com

    Although they call this a pattern recognition test it appears to be an IQ test, because the type of problems are exactly like the ones on the Norwegian MENSA IQ test.



    One thing I notice from all of these tests is that my placement on the distribution are pretty consistent.

    IQ test for MENSA Hungary.

    http://adaptiv-iq-teszt.mensa.hu/test.php?tid=1




    My results for the following IQ tests from MENSA:

    Sweden: 126
    Norway: 123
    Hungary: 123

    All very similar scores from 3 tests taken at different times.

    Definitely not smart enough to join MENSA.

    I'm no genius

    Mensa-Hungary:


    I did it casually though, and didn't put in 100% of all my effort into it.
