IQ scores always average out to 100, they're set up that way.
They set up 100 as their rating of "normal intelligence". That doesn`t mean the average person is that intelligent. They don`t change the tests to make the average = 100. If you have a 100 IQ you are above the average, But also of normal IQ. As a former recruiter, I`ve both taken and given all sorts of IQ, Achievement and personality tests.

Nope, shows you don`t know much. They were SET UP that way back when the average IQ *WAS* 100, since then, average IQ has DROPPED to 80 on the old scale; in other words, 100 is no longer the average, 80 is. Society is now almost one-quarter dumber than they were when IQ scales were invented.
