I haven't taken a real IQ test, so I wouldn't know. I do have enough intelligence not to pay for a test that really has no bearing on how I conduct my life though.
Now if you're talking internet "IQ tests," then I range from being an idiot to being a genius depending on which site is giving the "test."
I think my take is more likely! Not going to lie, reading through 3 pages of people claiming they have genius or near genius IQ levels is amusing.
“…the whole trouble lies here. In words, words. Each one of us has within him a whole world of things, each man of us his own special world. And how can we ever come to an understanding if I put in the words I utter the sense and value of things as I see them; while you who listen to me must inevitably translate them according to the conception of things each one of you has within himself. We think we understand each other, but we never really do.”
XKCD is always relevant. Always.
I'm a little amused that you honestly believe that everyone with a high IQ is living a life with huge impact on society, because that certainly isn't the case.
Reading through this thread I keep seeing people saying "You know hat the odds are of scoring..." We're talking about an incredibly numerous species of over 7 billion individuals. Each of which is a vastly different person from the next. The "odds" don't hold nearly as much weight in this case.

Iq tests are like cpu benchmarks, nice to have a high number but no real application (unless your like 180+ and likely insane in some fashion).
Took one in highschool in psychology class, it was 140 something. It does make sense seeing as how my brother or cousins had to work their asses off just to get decent grades and I just coasted along without any trouble.
I see many people here writing 135-160 which are probably liars. I took an actual iq test, a real one, not online and my iq is 127.
Prey on the weak and you will survive, prey on the strong and you will live.
