The tests taken online are NOTHING like a real IQ test. Time is not a factor in most of the tests, and questions often are presented as brain teasers. Memory and spacial reasoning are not tested.



130 average with a cooked brain? I can live with that. FWIW: the US average is just below 100. The world average is supposed to be 100. The 100 figure is constantly recalculated to compensate for increasing rates of knowledge related to age. A 100 50 years ago would below 100 today. Not to say that they were not as smart back then, just that their knowledge/age ratio is different than the current ratio.

Umm I say it depends on the drugs.

Yeah, huffing glue does kill brain cells. First girlfriend huffed A LOT OF GLUE.

But she was still quite intelligent.

So does paint thinner

and crack

but it reallllly takes many years.

My problem with multi hour tests is getting bored and/or just wanting it to be over and starting to answer questions quick. Regardless of intelligence, it just gets boring. maybe that is part of the test. My problem is memory. I forget stupid stuff. As in walking into the grocery store and forgeting why I walked in. Or setting down a tool and spending 10min trying to find it again.

Memory is my weak link too. I like to think my brain power is being used elsewhere. Which is why I can't remember ----.

I'm not sure the severe drug use issue really is one, but who knows. I tested 135 in 6th grade (30 years ago), and in the interim have used LSD 100+ times, and smoked nearly my weight in marijuana.
When you overdose 3 times in 3 months, it's bound to do some damage. Goddamn pills.

I took the full test in grade school in the 70's and took it again sometime much later and it did in fact stay the same. 133 both times.

That test is BS. Says I score 131. Matt and Carol both scored an even number on the test and Sparetire scored 8 more than Carol. So right there I know their system is off.

Way off. Either that system is severely flawed, or I have fallen on my head one too many times in the last 10 years, because my score on this test was about 35 points lower than my professionally given test roughly 10-12 years ago. A 117 vs a 152.

Though in all honesty I did skip 4 or 5 of the questions because I was getting antsy and tired of taking the test. That probably brought it down quite a bit, so maybe not as fa off as that, had I actually answered all of the questions.

I got a real one done in elementary school and highschool and scored a 136 IIRC, not bad at all but it doesn't mean that much. Speaking of intelligence there where people in bootcamp who didn't know what state Cincinnati is in, I guess thats the education you get from NYC schools.

Just as an observation, I have never talked to anyone, or seen anyone admit to an IQ of lower than 100. If 100 is roughly the average, where are these low scoring people? If there are plenty of people claiming 120,130,140 or higher, shouldn't their be a ---- ton of people scoring 80/70/60 or lower? Do people and test givers think too highly of themselves and their intelligence? Or is it just that there are so many more people in the 90 and 100 range, just below "average", that is able to average out the high scores to a mere 100?

For various reasons Im pretty sure the bell curve for IQ doesnt look like a bell.

Also Id trade 10 or 15 of my IQ for other attributes in a second. Maybe not.... But it isnt a ticket to the high life thats for sure.

Absolutely. Hell, I'd give 30 of mine for attribute points to spend.

I got 141 on that most-accurate-online-test. I had it tested once in middle school, but my mom wouldn't tell me my score and now denies that I was ever tested. I don't even know why I was tested, but it must have been either very good, or very bad for her to not tell me.

The Boy with the 200 IQ? Coleman's second(?) role after Diff'rent Strokes?

I don't know about your kwee-wee reference. I appear to have the second highest child-test score after Older Guy, so ask him.
