does anyone know their iq?
but i got 136
i want to gauge how good it is
but IQ tests are rather meaningless. They just tell you how good you are at IQ tests.
but despite efforts to the contrary, there's always a cultural bias. Poor literacy will also have an effect.
people can only take the test put in front of them
it's as comparable a score as is realistically possible.
maybe I'm just defending it as my PB's 147 ("haha, like in snooker!") AND YOU CAN'T TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME *sob*
but as reliable indications of intelligence they're seriously flawed.
My old man was invited to join Mensa - he refused on the grounds that it "wasn't an organisation for the intelligent. Just an organisation for those who like to think themselves intelligent."
Not to take anything away from you, but intelligence is a far more diffuse thing than any test could ever indicate. Just look at the amount of Mensa members who are utter twats.
I completely agree.
i was hoping i wasnt an idiot. georgiabeth is "exceptionally gifted". trufax
lindsey lohan is "bright
but I'm guessing it's getting worse by the day if not sooner.
and it changes all the time anyway, it's not like a shoe size that you keep for life.
Never done one
I dont see how it would impact my life in any great way
i was in the top sillilysmallpercent of 12-13 yr olds too. back when i was 12-13.
anyways i once took a shnidey internet iq test and i got 160something. i was really happy and i'm never taking another one incase i get my actual one and it turns out i'm actually really stupid.
but then sometimes I get like 122 and sit there thinking I'm a thick little bastard.
I wrote a hit play and directed it, so I'm not sweating it either
i should spend my time scoring chicks
