While 110 is a decent score, I would expect an on-line IQ test to have a higher average than a clinically administered test for the following reasons:
* People taking the test multiple times
* People who think they will score well are more likely to voluntarily take such a test than someone who doesn't think they will score well.
I also don't find it too surprising that regular members of CP would consistently score higher than average. This place tends to weed out the idiots, on average.
