Random Intelligence Test will seem like a joke to most users since it is an intelligence test that didn't tell us how intelligent we are. Its frustrating design and lack of direction ensures this game is a flop.

This program was one unintelligent headache after another, starting with its lack of a Help file and any direction as to how the game should be played. We tried moving the multicolored balls around the gridlike game board for several minutes without understanding why our scores kept changing. Eventually, we realized that linking up same-colored balls earned points. However, we never felt like we had won, moved on to another round or were told how our score reflects our intelligence. It seemed like we could move balls around for hours without any sense of accomplishment. The game does seem to offer a customization feature, since there is an opening menu screen with several boxes full of numbers that we could alter, but since none of the boxes was labeled, we had no clue what how or if it changed gameplay.

Random Intelligence Test is a freeware program, but even so, because of its lack of direction and purpose, we do not recommend this game to anyone.

Developer's Description

At a Wikipedia article you can read a sentence that abolishes all known earlier (Eysenck, Wechsler, Raven, Amthauer ...) personal IQ tests: 'there is coordination between our state of arousal and our mental state'. I.e. IQ constantly changes, so a single IQ snapshot is meaningless: it's impossible get from the single measurement average or maximum IQ of a person. For this reason, disposable IQ tests are not able to measure real intelligence of a person. It is easy to see, there is only one way to do an IQ test reusable - to generate its tasks randomly. The famous Color Lines game randomly generates tasks, but isn't fit for measurements of intelligence due to fact that the average complexity of the tasks changes (less at the beginning of the game, more when the field is filled by the balls). In the proposed test, the average complexity of the tasks is constant. The other features of the test are: - potentially unlimited accuracy of assessment of intelligence (the test can generate immense number of different tasks); - the test easily measures the super-intelligence (so far for the assessment were used special tasks for a minuscule sample of the population that led to invalidation of the IQ measurements). In proposed test all tasks are extremely complicated but everyone is capable to solve them (with varying degrees of success); - unlike disposable IQ tests, the test will assess your mental level as much times as desired; - there are complexity adjustment by number of colors and initial balls, precision settings, saving results through Internet and settings in the registry.
