IQ Scores.

Recently I conducted an IQ test as part of a psychological survey and my test result was an general IQ of 111 and a verbal IQ of 103, which is supposedly a bit above average, though I take the results with caution. And I find IQ testing a flawed and dated form of intelligence grading (it seems a mild form of reassurance, saying you're not dumber than a bag of rocks). And IQ results can easily be misused for dubious political purposes.

Re: IQ Scores.

On the Internet, nobody has a IQ under 130.

I know this because my IQ is 132.

Re: IQ Scores.

I had an IQ test when I was about 12 years old or so.

I'm now 32 years old... I wonder how different my score will be now compared to back then?

As the Red Dwarf Backup computer Queeg might say "It has a nine in it, but it's not 9000".

Re: IQ Scores.

I took an IQ test once and it scored me at 151. When I took it again, it scored me at 127. I was afraid to take it a third time.

A lot of people I know have IQs supposedly way above the norm, and most of them couldn't find their ass with both hands. Let's just say I don't have a lot of confidence in IQ tests.

Re: IQ Scores.

On the two occasions I had to take an offical IQ test I scored 137 and 139 so my IQ must be around that mark. I am lucky that the areas I am poorer at (i.e. art and music ability and foreign languages) are not part of the IQ test.

We must be related somehow, I say that same thing all the time, only I sometimes add "with both hands behind their backs"

As far as me....

Re: IQ Scores.

One of those two statements is false. I'm not going to say which one.

Are you sure that was your IQ and not your blood pressure?

I can find my ass easily. It's my dick I have a problem with.
