Among more than 100 countries and territories whose people participated in the IQ test, Taiwan ranked first with an average IQ score of 116.07, followed by Japan with  112.69.

Hungary came in third place with 111.42, followed by South Korea with 111.36, Iran with 111.33, Hong Kong with 111.01, Serbia with 110.09, and Italy with 110.87.

The Worldwide IQ Test, which has been conducting IQ tests around the world since 2019, is considered a reliable, accurate, and unbiased source.

IQ is a score derived from a set of standardized tests used for assessing job applicants.

Wiqtcom Inc’s tests are designed to measure the cognitive abilities of a person, such as their problem-solving skills, abstract thinking, and general knowledge.

As required by the IQ tests, a test taker needs to be able to speak a particular language, and understand complicated mathematical problems or certain meanings of an issue within the context of a culture.

Wiqtcom’s Worldwide IQ Test website will work out the IQ average score of a nation based on the participants’ testing results.
