I had an IQ test done in high school. Got a really high language subscore (140+), but the overall score was only something like 120-125 because I'd done so shitty on the math portions (subscores as low as 108). Taking an IQ test only strengthened my distrust of them.

152 here. it's a matter of motivation and stability / consistency of work ethic. Intelligence only matters in broad terms as a predictor of societal trends. As individuals you can achieve a lot with hard work. It's possible that you have a misconception as to what hard work entails, though.

The only reason you haven't done anything special is because you have no actual dedication to anything you've done, ever.

It doesn't mean shit if you have a 150 IQ if you never bother pursuing anything you love, you'll just end up as useless as someone with a 90 IQ who never pursued anything they love.

Don't blame shit on genetics, because in the end, the reason you're a failure is your own weak will.

>>25714732
Yes, that's exactly it. Most people are content to go through life just being adequate, or just succeeding. Pretty much no-one has the drive to accomplish anything special or significant, because it's incredibly hard to do those things. You have to sacrifice nearly everything else in your life to achieve that one goal, and most people have no reason to do that.

Doesn't matter how fucking smart you are, there's hundreds of millions of smart people, being something special comes from your drive, dedication and passion.

IQ is only really useful for measuring when people have mental disabilities, that's what it was designed for. It's not a system that goes "Ok, you're over X IQ, you will be a success, but because you're below Y, you won't be remembered for anything major".

Why is it that you think that scientific/academic success is the only way you can be successful? Sure, you may never revolutionise science if you're clinically retarded. But do you think any of the great artists had massive IQ's, or just picked up a pencil/paintbrush and did their masterpiece one day? Do you think that any of the revolutionary bands just wrote incredible music one day, or didn't work damn hard to become exceptional at their instruments? The great authors, literally any of the thousands of fields that are responsible for our culture. Hell, even medicine, one of the most prestigious jobs around has an entire quote based around that "There's dumb doctors and there's smart doctors, but there's no lazy doctors".

But sure, you just sit there in your room, and blame everything but yourself for why you're a failure. It's all just being born with bad genetics, not that you've never worked hard consistently at anything in your life.

But it's not. If you have the drive and the motivation to stick with and learn about an art, you can create incredible music. From that point, success is just a matter of finding a market, which comes from knowing people in the scene, which comes from actually sticking with it. Same with any other art form, talent means fucking nothing compared to your actual skill.

>never implied anywhere
Directly implied when you stated that without good genetics, you cannot succeed, which creates the idea that genetics are the important factor, not ability to work incredibly hard.

>shitty metaphors aren't evidence of anything

Not even a metaphor you mong, it's me saying that the logic in what you're saying is exactly the same logic as what tumblr folk say. Without good genetics you can never be good at anything is the same no matter what you're talking about.

>you'd better get less terrible at arguing or you're going to make one asstastic lawyer

P.S. if you claim to be 130+ IQ and also depressed or NEET you're probably not as intelligent as you think.

IQ is a joke. Once you get above 160 its just a circle jerk of other faggots that think they are better than everyone. They legitimately believe that they can feel achieved in life by being intelligent and doing nothing with it.

Anon, do you know what an implication is? An implication pretty much exactly means that it creates the idea that something is the case.

Well, when I've used other examples to point out how ridiculous what you're saying is, and I'm just pointing out that your logic is no different to someone you'd consider unreasonable and completely biased, then yeah, there's no problem there. Also, can you actually explain the difference between what you're saying and what tumblrinas say?

>you're far more shit than me.

Haha, ok buddy, 300k starting pay any job you want, am I right? Pure maths degrees are seriously one of the most over-rated courses out there, there's really barely any jobs out there at all.

Also, a maths degree is next to nothing if we're being perfectly honest, a masters or higher in maths might be, but just a maths degree is something that plenty of other degrees incorporate.

Nah, I don't expect that at all, I'm fully aware of the fact that networking by far is the most important thing in legal fields. But with that being said, I won several scholarships from a local firm in legal studies, and they've given me a partial scholarship for my law degree, so I'm pretty sure that if I get decent marks, I'll have at least a low level job at that firm, which is enough to start off with. Worst comes to worse, having that partial scholarship looks good when applying for work.

>your logic is no different than people you dislike because you say something is genetically dependent and they say a different thing is genetically dependent. logically, nothing is genetically dependent
you are an idiot. the difference between 'genetics determine whether you can have significant ideas' and 'genetics determine whether you are fat' is that having significant ideas is a different thing than being fat and is related to genetics and external factors in different ways

ok. i'm not sure why you're bringing jobs up since that wasn't related at all to what i said but whatever

Lazy is not the same as not having the incredible drive that people who change their fields do.

It's really not, something being implied doesn't make it necessarily true.

>the difference between 'genetics determine whether you can have significant ideas' and 'genetics determine whether you are fat' is that having significant ideas is a different thing than being fat and is related to genetics and external factors in different ways

So, you're admitting that your logic is the exact same as a tumblrinas? Note, this is not an argument against your point, it's an argument trying to make you see that you're very similar to the people you say are irrational idiots.

>ok. i'm not sure why you're bringing jobs up since that wasn't related at all to what i said but whatever

You brought up jobs when you accused me of being mediocre and shit the same as you are even though I work hard.

>i laughed at you because you brought up law school like it was evidence you are significant

No I didn't, I brought up law school as proof that hard work is far more important than your ingrained abilities. I never said "Haha I'm in law school therefore I'm significant".

I brought up law school as a path for how people can become significant because you decided to start claiming that me being at law school is proof that I'll never be significant.

>>25716752
So, you're just boiling down my argument to the point where it supports what you're saying, and trying to use it as proof you're right? You realise that's not in any way a soundproof form of arguing, right?

Also, significant thoughts come from experiences, not from your genetics. But seeing as you're apparently an expert, explain biologically why I'm wrong.
>>
>>25716837
>Also, significant thoughts come from experiences, not from your genetics.

>something being implied doesn't make it necessarily true
That's right, it makes it dependent on the things that implied it. Take a fucking logic class. Like switch to it in the coming semester if you can.

>So, you're admitting that your logic is the exact same as a tumblrinas?
If 'logic' meant 'belief of a statement of a certain incredibly general form' then I guess so. I'm not sure why anyone who isn't a complete retard would think statements having the same general form makes their truth or falsity related, though.

>You brought up jobs when you accused me of being mediocre and shit the same as you are even though I work hard.
No I didn't.

>So, you're just boiling down my argument to the point where it supports what you're saying, and trying to use it as proof you're right?
No, I'm boiling down your argument to the point that it's clearly retarded in an effort to show you why the argument is retarded.

Stupid people do not have great ideas. So we inductively assume great ideas require intelligence.
>>
>>25716954
>Your experiences are overwhelmingly determined by your genetics

Are you kidding me? I hope you know how little this makes sense, your experiences aren't influenced by your genetics at all.

>where / to whom you were born, which is also technically an extension of genetics

No, it's not. Biologically, your genetics are not the same as the culture you're born into. Stretching the meaning of something to mean something else isn't being technical.
>>
>>25716987
>your experiences aren't influenced by your genetics at all.

Yes they are. "You" are a combination of your genetics (which is literally a code for your being and how you react to certain things) and experiences (and what you experience is entirely dependent on what you run into which is initially dependent on where you're born)

Let me phrase this in a way a retard can understand: where do you think culture comes from? Does it appear out of the ether?
>>
>>25716960
>That's right, it makes it dependent on the things that implied it. Take a fucking logic class. Like switch to it in the coming semester if you can.

Sure, so as I said, the implication that genetics are what causes success, has a direct link to the point that effort or hard work doesn't factor in.

>No I didn't.

Whoops
>Funny how you're such a mediocre sack of shit despite how much harder you obviously work.
>i'm not a mediocre person who will never accomplish anything significant, i'm in law school!

>No, I'm boiling down your argument to the point that it's clearly retarded in an effort to show you why the argument is retarded.

So, your taking my argument and turning it into an absurd form to make it seem stupid. Maybe you should look at having some of those logic classes yourself, because changing someones entire argument to suit your own goes against the basis of philosophical debate.

>Stupid people do not have great ideas. So we inductively assume great ideas require intelligence.

That's complete circular logic anon. What you're saying is that stupid people can't have great ideas, so therefore if someone has a great idea they must be intelligent. And if a stupid person at some point were to have a great idea, they would automatically become an intelligent one by virtue of having a great idea, am I right?

This argument is incredibly weak, because it's entirely reliant on your first point, that stupid people do not have great ideas. It falls apart to the simple question of, what happens if one does?

>>25717049
>You" are a combination of your genetics (which is literally a code for your being and how you react to certain things)

Blatantly untrue, there's no actual evidence for the idea that your nature is determined by your genetics, and not by experiences (or nurture).

>and what you experience is entirely dependent on what you run into which is initially dependent on where you're born

Where you're born isn't your genetics.

This is far, far too complex to put in a simple post, and you know it. It's far too complex for any single person to explain, even trying to explain a single aspect of it would likely take an entire lifetimes worth of research.

I bet you $20 that most iconic artists, musicians, architects and writers have high IQ's. Music in particular is a very iq intensive field as composing and improvisation involves a ton of on-the-fly analysis and prediction.

>Sure, so as I said, the implication that genetics are what causes success, has a direct link to the point that effort or hard work doesn't factor in.
I did not say genetics cause success you illiterate fucktard. I said significance requires genetics. Even if 'success' and 'significance' were the same those statements would still be different.

>Whoops
>>Funny how you're such a mediocre sack of shit despite how much harder you obviously work.
>>i'm not a mediocre person who will never accomplish anything significant, i'm in law school!
Neither of those statements saying anything about 'jobs' retard. Your additional assumptions are your own and you should really work on recognizing when you're making them.

>So, your taking my argument and turning it into an absurd form to make it seem stupid
I'm not turning it into anything. I'm summarizing it so it is obvious to anyone even slightly less retarded than you apparently are that it is stupid. If you want me to explain it formally: the truth of "X requires Z" does not depend on the truth of "Y requires Z".

We did not define stupidity as 'having good ideas'. Here we're using IQ.

If we assume reality was different then reality would be different. Shocking.

I am "smart" but I worked hard as fuck.

Took the SAT at age 11, scored an 1190. Went to JHU Center for Talented Youth summer camp. 4.4 GPA and Salutatorian in high school. 1540 SAT (old style). 5 on 7 AP tests. Perfect 800 on all 3 SAT IIs. Full ride to top 20 University (top 5 public schools). 3.6, honors college, deans list, etc. 99th percentile on MCATs, 95 percentile on GRE. Posters and abstracts. Research. Overseas study. Volunteering.

And you know what I do now? I sit in a room and program, just like probably every single one of you lucky enough to have a full-time job. I'm just like any other joe off the street. I'll never have a porsche or a mansion, even though I was given the gifts necessary to become a success. Why? Because I slipped. When I graduated, I took some community college classes and stopped going and failed. I didn't take med school applications seriously, because I thought that they would see that I was "smart." Guess what, they didn't.

Yeah its depressing and shitty to fail, but you've got to get used to it my friend. Being a procrastinator because you're afraid to fail is as retarded as being afraid of the dark. Most of life is a colossal waste of time, true. You'll never ever ever use anything you ever learn in school after the final. But you'll never get back any second, so treat your moments like they're gold. Whatever you're doing, focus, and give your best, because to "give anything less is to sacrifice the gift." Steve Prefontaine said that. Its important because once you lose that motivation, you've got to work like the dickens to get it back, or else you start getting into this self-loathing cycle that ends in depression and suicidal thoughts through a haze of bong smoke and Counterstrike. Trust me I've been there, and its even worse when you're out in the real world without the safety nets that society provides you when you're young (parents, school, sports, clubs). Lazy at home? You're grounded. When you're lazy at work, you end up homeless. Because you don't get second chances, kids. Make every shot you have count.

You think that you're "smart?" You're a fucking idiot, my friend. You have to prove otherwise to the entire world, either by doing all that crappy shit that nobody wants to do like volunteer or play an instrument or do the most boring research. Because guess what kids, its not the smart ones that succeed or even get the shittiest jobs. Its the people who are willing to work harder at the shittiest jobs for the lowest pay. Thats the real world, kiddies. you think that you're cool because you can muster up enough brain cells to BS your way through a multiple choice test? Thats hipster talk you lazy worthless shit. You make me sick.

You think that when you die, you'll look back on your life and be like, hey, I'm so glad that I was lazy because i could pass tests without having to read? Not likely. you're going to be looking back on your life and wondering where all the time went.

You want to slack off in school? Honestly, thats fine, school really doesn't matter in the long run, but find something you're passionate about and work harder than anyone else at it. I mean work your ass off. Programming, sports, anything, because now is your time to experiment. Every waking second should be about this one thing, to the point where you're dreaming about it. Work ethic is everything, so learn what its like to give our all to just one thing. And become somebody who is awesome to be around. be funny and considerate. Because at the end of the day, its not the smartest person who's going to keep their job, but the person who gets along best with everybody, even if you're not the best at the job.

>tldr: Smart? No, you're stupid and lazy, get a job or better, start a fucking business. Be a charmer. School is a joke and doesn't prepare you for real life, so don't go around thinking that your "no work" 3.6 GPA will get you anywhere except the unemployment office. Fucking work harder and stop being lazy, you asshole. You're fucking up. Find passion somewhere and find your drive. Whatever it is. Before its too late.

Okay, so you give me an actual explanation about where culture comes from that isn't just "Genetics". Explain how, and why, with demonstrable proof in every culture on earth.

>>25717201
>I did not say genetics cause success you illiterate fucktard. I said significance requires genetics

Define significance then, in your words.

>Neither of those statements saying anything about 'jobs' retard.

Are you kidding me? Now you're just flat out claiming that things that are obviously related to jobs, aren't related to jobs. This is getting ridiculous.

>I'm summarizing it so it is obvious to anyone even slightly less retarded than you apparently are that it is stupid

No, you're reducing it to an absurd, simplified form. No matter what terms you use to describe that, it's what you're doing. Argue what I'm actually saying, not what you think I'm saying.

>We did not define stupidity as 'having good ideas'.

Except you did, when you claimed that stupid people cannot have great ideas, and that therefore you have to be smart to have great ideas. As I said, your entire argument falls apart on the premise that there's no reason a person with a low IQ couldn't have great, revolutionary ideas.

>Here we're using IQ.

Do you even know how an IQ test works? Your ability to solve basic fucking puzzles doesn't relate to your ability to have philosophically or culturally significant ideas.

>If we assume reality was different then reality would be different. Shocking.

And if we assume reality is the way you claim it is, it would be the way you claim it is. What a fucking shock.
You know what, lets just take this whole point, and take it to the basics. Give me literally any evidence that what you're claiming is true, that IQ relates in any way to significance. And some IQ tests of significant people do not prove this, the same as if you showed me most successful people had blue eyes (hypothetical), it wouldn't prove you need blue eyes to be successful.

Assuming IQ isn't just a meme, and drugs- if abused- can lower IQ, is it possible for them to raise it? I don't mean specialized drugs made in a lab with that very purpose in mind, but run-of-the-mill drugs like weed, psylo, mdma, etc.

Its actually the 99.957 percentile, so at the current world population of 7.4 billion there are over 3 million people with 150+ IQ.

4chan is a high traffic site, and high IQ people are more likely to live in developed areas with access to the internet. It makes perfect sense that at least a few dozen are visiting 4chan on a regular basis.
