Okay, today is Friday, June 25, 2010, exactly 14 days since I took the Miller Analogies Test on Friday, June 11, 2010. My test results are:
Scaled score = 506. Range of scaled scores (they do not provide raw scores, which would be total # correct out of 100) runs from 200 to 600, with a mean of 400, and a standard deviation of 25 points. So, I scored a little past 4 standard deviations.
I AM NOT A HAPPY CAMPER! Although my score puts me in the top 1% of people who have taken this, for all intents and purposes, verbal IQ test, my score does NOT rise to the “Karavitis Standard”!
Although I could easily apply for entry into any of the high-IQ societies with this score, I do not feel that it represents what I am capable of. NO FUCKING WAY!
I intend on re-taking this exam by the end of this year.

(2) An MAT score of 506 translates to an IQ of 168.
(3) For those of you who are wondering, the MAT is a better predictor of graduate school success than EITHER the GRE exam OR one’s undergraduate GPA. I have a link to a Powerpoint presentation that was made where the researcher discusses this.

EDIT: Link is dead. I downloaded a copy of this while it was still up on the Web.
Here is another link that shows the reliability and validity of the MAT test:
