IQ tests, even professional ones, are a measure of one type of intelligence. Scores over around 120-130 (on the ones averaging 100) don't give you much benefit career wise. If it was an Internet one, it's not worth thinking of. OP if you're where you want to be in life, it doesn't matter. If you're not, look at education to get there, you may need testing for dyslexia among other things. The score still doesn't matter. It's a number on one test.

Firstly, OP is a male. Secondly, OP thought that he himself have had a mental retatardation, not his son. Please read FMLs twice before commenting to make sure you've read them properly.

No. He said he always thought he was partially retarded, not his son. Besides the fact that IQ tests are highly subjective. He (the dad) scored just below the low end of normal, and his son scored just towards the upper end of normal.

It depends on the questions you probably got an adult one and he got one for a kid his age...that's how they are set up I got a high score a middle school one in high school while having a really low score for a college one

Besides all else, IQ is averaged across the population, so the numbers are meaningless unless everyone in the world takes them, of course there's many countries where children don't even get schools to go to, so that's not going to happen anyone soon. But also means the ability needed to get average would lower, not loads and loads just get really low scores. And nothing worse than a teenager who thinks they're smart trying to claim that most others are stupid.

#10 are you aware that an IQ of 40 is usually classified as severe mental retardation? If your "statistic" was correct the majority of the young population would be very noticeably mentally delayed.

Online IQ tests are ridiculous. Actually, even written ones aren't great. One administered by a psychologist is the best, but to be honest, if you grew up with puzzles and logic games, you do better, regardless of actual intelligence. Mine came in above 160, so my skepticism about these tests isn't because I did poorly.
