Test Your Musical IQ

Our estimate of your Musical IQ is 125.

You did as well as or better than 95.22% of people.

60 70 80 90 100 110 120 130 140 150

We estimated your score in the same way as real IQ tests do: based on all the other
people who have taken the test, we set 100 as the average score, following a Normal
distribution with a standard deviation of 15. That means that most people (68% of them)
score between 85 and 115 and nearly everybody (95% of people) scores between 70
and 130. This is a new test, however, and so if you didn't do very well, don't worry! The
test might be wrong. And even if your musical skills could use some work, rest assured:
as far as we know, many people who have difficulty making music still enjoy listening to
music very much.

Here are some more detailed scores on the three subtests we used:

We think that performance on a test like this might accurately predict people's ability to
play a musical instrument or sing: people who are very skilled musicians might be more
skilled at being able to tell how the tunes differ from one another. This is just a
hypothesis, though. It might turn out to be wrong.

By participating in this research, you are helping us to learn more about how musical
abilities vary across different populations, ages, locations, and more; and how musical
abilities might be related to musical experiences, like listening to lots of music online, or
attending music classes in school.
