    Yah, true.
    A shrink gave me an IQ test a while ago . . . he explained that the test (I took the Weschler (sp?) test) covered only 12 of the 300+ aspects of human intelligence they know about . . . evidently, there's other aspects of intelligence that shrinks haven't discovered yet.

    Anyway, the IQ test I took covered stuff like short-term memory, spatial perception, social development, general knowledge (the sort of questions they'd have on "Who wants to be a Millionairre"), some math problems I had to do in my mind, and some other stuff. Some of the things they don't test for is physical agility, musical ability, creativity, intuition, mechanical ability, empathy, and stuff like that.

    Pretty much, it's possible to score high on the IQ test that groups like MENSA gives, and come across to most people as a "loser" (I've been to a few MENSA parties, there's some pretty strange characters in that group), but usually, if you score high on an IQ test, you're probably able to deal with your environment with a high degree of sucess. It doesn't mean much more than that, though.

    That's what my shrink told me, anyway.

    IQ is like penis size, how much money you make, how much you can bench, or how many women a man has slept with. you can ask any of these questions but you probably wont get a true answer

    IQ tests are only completely accurate at a young age. After a person experiences and learns things simple reasoning etc can produce a high score. taking an IQ test as a child -before you have learned to reason- is a more accurate depiction of your 'natural' intelligence. obviously this can be argued both ways, i just thought I'd throw that in the discussion.

    peace

    the problem is that a lot of internet tests don't test to a full 200.. the last one i took i got all right, and the score was 135. Plus.. IQ tests are biased because usually people are stronger in one area compared to another..

    And lastly, it doesn't mean anything. My uncle is a supergenius.. unmeasurably high iq. He sits at home drinking beer and winning radio contests for a living while the woman that he's been living with for 20 years WHO STILL IS NOT HIS WIFE pays the bills.

    I took one when I was in second grade because my school wanted to put me in a "gifted" program and I scored 142. I took another one when I graduated highschool and I got the 173. I'm not sure how accurate they are. I wouldn't advise telling any kid that they are a genius, it makes they're work ethic poor in school, or at least it did to me.

    Everyone who was in the gifted program with me ended up not having the greatest GPA because we all already thought we knew everything and didn't worry about school.

    ive scored differently on 3 tests with a low of 138 and a high of 147 .. i think it gives you an idea of true intelligence but isnt fool-proof.Sometime , iq tests are the only way to see whats going on with youngsters in school. I was very frustarated in highschool because , in math related subjects , the answers would pop into my head but i didnt know how i came up with that conclusion! Well , as you all know , that dont float and i failed alot of mat classes till i was tested and moved past them . I am told that i am a rare case in that i do not favor either side of my brain .

    it is true that most IQ tests measure a limited amount of skills while overlooking others - for example, socio-relational skills like leadership, empathy, endurance, salesmanship, ambition (the desire to better oneself) - these are often just as important a cognitive ability but are measured differently - thus raw intelligence is a rather poor indicator of true genious IMHO

    Besides, one can get a little better on the test via understanding the format o them and the type of questions asked - my score improved about 10 points after taking 3 different tests - and knowing my own limitations, I would suspect that I am not actually a genious in their standard - tho I would want to focus more on those areas which are mutable and under my control, ie the relational skills

    Certainly sounds like a genius to me... I've scored a 138, never higher, never lower.

    Quite seriously though . . . I'd say that the folks who read and post on boards like this one are apt to have higher IQ's than people who don't, primarily because it takes a bit of extra IQ horsepower to mess with the written language, and probalby more than the usual person on the street.
    Probably get extra points for good spelling and grammer as well . . . but who's keeping score?

    You mean there are people who would lie about these sort of things......??? There are some question types that are on every type IQ test in the universe (sequences, series, factoring, squares, cubes, common divisors, phonetic mapping, common spatial forms, etc ) and once you've seen that question form once you can stamp out the answer significantly faster than someone who has never seen that form before. You got time on your hands take a standardized IQ test, note your score. Read a book, or go to a web site on how to take IQ tests and redo the test. You will be amazed at the difference. I did it long ago and went from a ~120 to 140+ in 4-5 hours. Did I get any smarter? Me no thinky so.

    That means you got 2 out of 3 right. Ordinarily that would be a 66, but this is an IQ test, so you double that number and get your IQ, which in this case will be 132. Not bad for a coupla legs . . .

    I read something like "the human IQ has gone up like 25 points in the last century....thats unreal... I mean if you think about it that would make a lot of our children as smart as men and woman a century ago. This helps to prove that in the nature vs nurture debate that nurture is more important because that is to short of a time for our genetics to change so drastically.
