I have an IQ over 130, and lost my virginity aged 15. I have had two serious boyfriends, on short term boyfriend and one ****buddy. And those are just the ones I have slept with. When I was 12-13, I was semi-sexually engaged with someone (semi-nakedness, kissing, rubbing etc). I had my first intimately sexual experience aged 9. I currently have a boyfriend I am deeply serious about, and I have sex most days that I am with him, occasionally multiple times a day. His IQ is also probably over 130, as he is going to the same university as me and got the same A Level grades that I did. He thinks we don't have sex enough =P

But then again, I am a philosopher. Apparently we are quite a horny lot.
How do you know yo have an IQ of 'over 130'. Why are you boasting about being sexually active what do you want a medal? Three As in english, politics and history is pretty average and doesn't really show brightness. The article was actually about men so your post was largely a waste of time.

Well the generalisation might be true that more intelligent people get less sex (it wouldn't surprise me), but I'll bet intelligent people have far better partners than stupid people. I imagine you'll find most thick men just want to **** anything that's got a pair of tits.
Isn't that all guys? Hell while you're young and all!

I don't like this distinction between 'intelligent' and 'thick'. As we turn into adults, the divide isn't as clear. Especially considering a fair proportion of Uni students have lived a sheltered life and are 'thick' in other areas, for example common sense. Where as 'Kevin' the local mechanic is not.

is it just me, or do really high IQ people tend to do no work at all and get away with winging it? Its more mediumly intelligent people who work their arses off to get the top that would fit in more with this (dumb) generalisation.

Most uber clever people I know do **** all and are slightly off the rails in terms of getting hammered/taking drugs/being sex addicts. They just know when to cram.

Then they're of questionable intelligence. I do see your point. Intelligence usually brings personal strife.

Being streetwise is just as important in some aspects as being able to work out a mathematical equation IMO.

Same thing. Having pressure to excel from a young age often brings on a self destructive adulthood.

I disagree, nothings easy, especially as a youngster. Socialisation and intelligence are both completely different elements to the human mind. Pressure is usually from outside influence. Being intelligent doesn't make a person invulnerable to what others do.

but why are all intelligent people invariably under pressure? My parents never gave me any pressure to do anything, and in school i wasnt expected to achieve much becasue i was such a lazy *******. If anything, the complete absence of all but self imposed pressure probably contributed to me doing fairly well in highschool. I'll know how well i did at college when the results are out on August 16th :P

Not all intelligent people are under pressure, it'd say it'd be dependent on your individual circumstances.

There's also internal pressure, for example if you're intelligent and realise your abilities yet don't act upon them, you're more likely to stress yourself out?

For example, I didn't revise, not a day, for my GCSES. I passed them all, but they were pretty damn average considering how easy the GCSEs were. Yet my AS levels resemble yours, because I revised for a whole day on each subject. It's interesting that I find the GCSEs are completely dependent on memory and AS to an extent, where as A2 starts to filter out the not so bright.

There were people who crammed for GCSEs, got all A, A*'s, yet come A2 they just weren't able enough. Interesting flaw in the education system...

That's ridiculous. I have an IQ(absurd measure of intelligence, IMO) of 149 and I have never spent lots of time studying, lost my virginity at 14 (lol) and have held down a few relationships. I spent my time at school/uni & home playing footy, riding bicycles and having fun. It tends to be the less intelligent ones that need to have their face in a book.
IQ doesn't mean swat! - mine fluctuates from 99 to 150ish - highly unreliable measure of intelligence - everyone in mensa is stuck up:p:

:dito: ........ One of my friends though spends ridiculous amounts of time revising but still doesn't manage to do as well. I think she'd do better if she relaxed a bit.
I agree - laziness is the way forward - laziness within reason...like revising for exams a week before they are due - that sort of thing works quite well for me

I completely agree. My IQ adjusts itself to that of a neolithic man first thing in the mornings.

Hmm, the study's probably right in its initial claim, but the title of this thread isn't

agreed....peopel are smart and stupid in their respective ways...where i excel in the sciences i suck at the arts esp literature. and other people might be the opposite. Whereas chavs may excel at cutting trees and mowing the lawn to carpentary, non chavs might be bankers....at the end of the day, everyone is smart in their own way and society wouldn't work if it wern't so!

I act upon them when I need to. What im chiefly replying to is an argument put forward earlier that because clever people are so obsessed with studying they never get out/have poor social skills and so pull less. I was saying that studying all the time clearly isn’t the case becasue most clever people take advantage of the fact they are and so do less.

As for the stress, I think stress doesn’t really follow logic. I don’t personally feel stressed in situations which I imagine stress would be considered to be present. That means I might not work hard during the year, I just work smart – ensure I have good notes ect for an end of year cramming session. So stress is more down to the individual rather than the situation he faces, because sometimes the stimulus of the situation may not produce stress in the individual despite logical thinking saying that it would.

I agree that ill feel a right **** for not working harder if I get AAB or something at A level, but that is post exams. We’re talking about more pre exam ‘what if’ stress, aren’t we?

Theres also a difference between not working hard during the year and being a tit. Like not listening in the classes you turn upto ect. Not doing homework is one thing, but not even listening or taking at least a few notes in class is another.


MY IQ drops damatically during the summer holidays.

Even if you don't find it easy to excel, you shouldn't take pressure - peace and tranquillity is the way forward! I don't understand modern day society and why everyone rushes around like maniacs and are always stressed out - looking at the big picture we are all going to die one day - why not spend life having fun - end result is the same whether you are stressed or not - might as well take the non stressed option IMO.:rolleyes:
