    To paraphrase Mae West, a partner with a past is nice but one with a present is preferable.

    So, in short, this is a "mine is bigger than yours" contest?

    Mine ain't so big, but as the laydeeze say, it ain't the size, it's whatcha do with it.

    Or so they tell me.

    Obviously your opinion is to be valued.

    Snap by the way! (though in 1975 I was -4 years of age and probably not doing myself justice)

    I was 15, and all these things really test is your reading ability. Otherwise.....

    You aren't espousing that terrible heresy uttered by only the naughtiest of psychologists that the IQ test is fundamentally flawed and simply measures your ability to do IQ tests?

    That's EXACTLY what I'm saying. Only heretics get burned on the pyre.

    It can mean academic death though, but that would mean I care about what they think.

    I don't, and they HATE that.

    It does give me a smile.... Does that make me evil?

    It's not all that uncommon a stance really....seems to inversely correlate with the tendency to make value judgements.

    And any financial stake in psychometrics.

    I don't really care about money aside from a subscience concern...

    And they hate that MORE...

    I can't be bought.
