    If two people were talking, with iq's of 130 and 160. Do you think it would be obvious who had which iq (if you didn't know obviously)?

    It depends on what they were talking about.

    Hmm, in that case no I don't think you could easily tell, as none of those things really allow the marginal difference in logical thinking / problem-solving to show. If anything (and to overgeneralise but whatever), you might be able to tell in that the person with 160 IQ might not be so enthusiastic and/or knowledgeable in those areas as they might spend their time doing something that they would find more interesting and/or challenging. Of course, this makes massive assumptions on preferences and personality traits in relation to IQ, but I have a feeling it might hold on average.

    I highly doubt it. I genuinely don't believe there's a huge difference between such IQ levels
