Are you a skilled speller? Why not take the spelling quiz down below and see how you fare? Even if you’re not certain about how a word should be spelled, you might get a gut feeling when looking at it. It will either just “look right” or “look wrong”. But it doesn’t necessarily say much about your IQ if you haven’t the foggiest idea how a word should be spelled. The ability to spell isn’t necessarily indicative of a high IQ.

Some people are not good at spelling, and some of those people also have a high IQ.

Others have a way with numbers, while others are good with their hands. There are, it seems, numerous pathways to measure a person’s intelligence.

It’s like the fish quote commonly attributed to Albert Einstein: “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

So, while this quiz might not be an accurate way to measure intelligence, it is an effective and fun tool to see whether or not you know how to spell.

Of course, you might encounter words you have never seen before. If you have that natural ability to decipher if a word looks wrong or right, however, or if you’re simply a good guesser, you still may pass the quiz with flying colors.

But if you fail, it doesn’t mean you don’t have a high IQ. This, like any other online quiz, is simply meant for fun! So, go on, fish. Try to climb the tree, if nothing else, for the challenge of it!  Happy spelling!
