Tricky 15-question quiz will test your IQ to see if you are 'highly intelligent'

Do you know what your IQ is?

Well it seems there might be one way to put it to the test.

US-based quiz creator Terry Stein has created a 15-question challenge which he claims can show if you have a high IQ.

The average score on an IQ test is 100, with most people falling into the 85 to 114 range. A score of 140 or more is considered high, while those who get over 160 are thought to be a ‘genius’.

Stein’s quiz, which was published on Playbuzz, suggests that if you pass, you could have an IQ that’s higher that 151.

If you get nine or more right, Stein reckons you are likely to have a high IQ, showing signs of mental agility, intuitiveness and creative thinking.

How will you fare?
