Writing about web page http://simple-iq.com/
I generally hate IQ tests; they always seem annoying and boring, and they often insist on testing memory; my memory's not too bad, but I can't do these questions that flash a huge block of text for less time that it takes to realise that it was there and then ask you to repoduce it exactly (that was along the lines of the IQ test I tried from the BBC a few years ago). To me, memory isn't a sign of intelligence; someone isn't clever if they can write out an equation they only saw for less than a second – they're clever if they can give you the answer.

I generally hate IQ tests, but I've found quite a nice one that only has 40 questions (I think; I was too busy anwering to notice the numbers).
If you're in two minds about doing it: my IQ is apparently 127. There, now you have to do it to get a better 'score' that I did…
