IQ Test

I'm not sure how scientific this really is (hey, it's 'PhD Certified', whatever that means), but I've just taken the 'Classic IQ Test' at

My IQ score is 140:

Your Intellectual Type is Visionary Philosopher. This means you are highly intelligent and have a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a variety of different ways. Like Plato, your exceptional math and verbal skills make you very adept at explaining things to others and at anticipating and predicting patterns. And that's just some of what we know about you from your IQ results.

I'm certainly intelligent enough to question whether one really can equate a raw IQ score to an 'intellectual type'.  I think three questions tested eloquence, so the praise of my verbal skills seems unjustified.

I suspect the result is a bit flattering anyway.  On the BBC's version, I scored something like 130 last year.
I've just taken it again.  Though it was my second attempt, the first was about a year ago, so I doubt I was at much of an advantage.  My score was 133, broken down as: Language: 11/12; Memory: 12/12; Logic: 21/22; Numbers: 9/12; Perception: 11/12
