I feel my IQ Shrinking Part Two

Today I realized what use is it to do all these exercises with out a baseline of my brain function to begin with.  

   If I do and IQ test first then I should be able to see if there are any improvements along the way.  There are many options on the world wide web. 

   So, maybe I should take a few? is one that seems to be popular, we shall see. IQ tests give us an idea how we process information, solve problems and use our critical thinking.  Having a high score does not necessarily make a person "smarter" than someone with a lower score. 

   I have met people with extremely high IQs that couldn't operate an electric can opener.  So, if you are following along in my journey and want to see how you do, keep in mind we aren't numbers ok?

Update:  Golly batman!!  I should have known LOL. I took the test at the one listed above.

    LOL! you think I passed?  Me thinks not LOL.  Gotta check my e-mail and see what I got, maybe that's where my results are.  

   Yep, in my e-mail it says "your test score is___" and that's that unless I want to pay.  If scores were uniform I'd be really worried, I dropped 20 points in the last two years!   

Might look at Mensa and see if they still have a test on there, I trust their numbers better.
