    HI!

    Whatever % bracket is smart enough to know what ******** IQ tests are. I'm dying on the inside every time I see them referenced to as some measure of intelligence.

    Here's the low-down; it measures your ability to take IQ tests, that's about it.

    Yours sincerely,

    well it depends on what kind of intelligence you're measuring dosn't it....

    i would probably be average in terms on logical intelligence ('traditional intelligence), but creatively i would put myself well above average.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA at the poll, the threads that pop up in H&R, and the general posts around TSR.
    At last, I can use this in context.

    Ahem.

    People who say they are in the top 1% are lying.

    Only the extremely gifted(I.E those genius kids who take degrees at age of 12) are in the top 1%
    Fail.

    You do know that 1% means 1 in 100.

    Are you saying 1 in 100 kids do degrees at 12?

    LMFAO!

    What?
    Was that a proper IQ test?
    Because 140+ IQ is v.v.good.
    I did an adult one at 10 and got I think 120? 152 is my best, and I did the MENSA online one and it says I am eligible. But I have got some iffy ones like 130-something, and my Dad is ridiculously clever. He's like 160 and was actually in MENSA!
    But I never did understand moles, or long division, or plate tectonics. I'm not that brainy.

    May I also add that 161 is the maximum score achievable on that test...

    I love it when people cling onto an IQ test result as some sort of badge of intelligence, "i got 165 but i don't think that revealed my true potential so i did another 20 and got a mean score of 178 with a standard deviation of 5.43." Get out.

    I put top 60% to 70%. I'm doing a pretty intensive university course but I don't deem myself to be particularly intelligent and I have very little common sense. Also, there are some pretty intelligent people out there =P

    It's quite bad really, I could be alot better at a lot of things, but being amazing at something just doesn't seem worth the effort. I'd rather be above average with minimal effort lol
    :eek:

    You're me!
