While those with an IQ between 90 and 110 are said to be of “average” intelligence, anything above 140 officially places you in the category of geniuses.

And according to quiz creator Michael Rogers, those who pass his tricky test on Playbuzz with a perfect score, show an extraordinary IQ of 153-161.

The long 25-question quiz tests players’ historical, geographic and religious knowledge with multiple-choice answers – and more than a few red herrings, reports the Daily mail.

Speaking of the lucky few who pass brilliantly, Rogers said, “People in your IQ range are introverted and intuitive.

“You take time for solitude, listen to your inner voice, and pay attention to your dreams. That said, you don’t ignore limits, you understand them.”
