>>26136752 I've actually my IQ tested professionally twice, 156 and 158. I don't know anyone else's so I can't make any assumptions based on it, but I graduated 3rd in my class in high school and have a 3.97 as a junior in computer engineering at a top 25 school.
You get accepted everywhere, eat at good restaurants, constantly have a romantic partner, have a network of influential smart friends that can get you any job you're qualified for and an apartment to boot, and you're also never bored, since you can do just about anything creative from playing an instrument to singing to painting well.
There are rare times when I'm glad that I'm not smart, cause that would probably mean that life would be so enjoyable that I wouldn't want it to end. Oh, but I do.
>>26137191 >Most real high IQ people I know find internet posting to be extremely boring and not mentally stimulating You're missing the core of the problem. See >>26137352 and furthermore, dysfunctional and self-destructive behavior isn't restricted to "normal" people.. just because you understand why doesn't mean you'll instantly change for the better.
>>26137887 Yeah, that's that Dunning-Kruger effect you're referencing. I'm smart but I'm not lazy (at work).
>>26138384 Well, even "slightly" adds up TO a lot over the decades. For example, say one guy gets 10 dollars an hour and another gets 10.5 dollars an hour. They work 7 hours everyday for 10 years. The first guy gets $255500 at the end of his ten years. The second guy gets $268275 at the end of his ten years. The second guy ultimately gets 12 hundred dollars more than the first guy, which is enough to buy a 2013 ford focus.
>>26136752 >IQ in the thousands. >Have become so smart I ascended from the physical plane all together. >I live in the infinite, the past and the future are the same to me. >I can see forever. >I Have witnessed cosmic anomalies the greatest scientists of Earth could never even hope of understanding >I have become the universe itself, every vibration from the smallest atomic reaction to the birth and death of stars I have felt. I witnessed the beginning, and I witnessed the end. I am god. >tfw all I want to do is shitpost on a Taiwanese checkerboard
>>26136752 The implications in life are basically nothing. In schooling though. Usually a high IQ means you're a little better at math and physics and some critical concepts than the average person. It typically also means you're faster at learning and retaining technical concepts.
The high IQ has nothing to do however with knowledge of religion, philosophy, history, critical thinking, morality, values, and other such concepts.
So people with high IQs congrats you're decent at math.
>>26138622 i'm the mensafag, you just pay 20 ueros to brag with people who fuck with maths and physics or just put it in your resumee if you're trying to land a job in tech or some shit
>>26138618 i'm actually also in a 99.98 percentile iq society called spiqr and in THIS high iq society, but there aren't many people in those so they're pretty useless. i have proof if you don't believe me m8
basically what this means is that most of you took a test and the test was bullshit or you paid to take it and got ripped off. Nearly all of you are gonna be average or maybe slightly above average. Couple might be above 130 and it's unlikely that any of you are above 150.
>>26139059 Putting aside the facts that those screencaps are riddled with spelling errors and lack any scientific citations, your base premise is flawed. In assuming that >Nearly all of you are gonna be average or maybe slightly above average. Couple might be above 130 and it's unlikely that any of you are above 150. you're implying that the sample of individuals on this board is not affected by self-selection bias.
samemensafag here. it's true that iq tests have a big variability, that's why i posted my mensa membership, because its test is the most consistent around and it only states you are above 130 sd 15. i started taking these tests when i realized i could do great in school in logical subjects as maths physics philosophy and also foreign languages with little to no effort. i got into mensa and then i took some of the so called "High range iq tests", basically you have unlimited time to solve them and your score is related to an iq. their standardization is not reliable but i've had consistent scores across multiple tests, from 150 to 165, also some og the people that make these are well known geniuses. this is a sample of high range iq test: http://www.scribd.com/doc/292788090/ENSDT-20-OFFICIAL-IQ-TEST-by-Marco-Ripa
my opinion on this shit? it's a waste of time (not that i usually don't waste my time, i'm here after all), the only thing worth getting is the mensa membership for business opportunities, or if you're really curious about yourself and wanna find out. love you based robots
>>26137151 Used to be entirely convinced of this, then I had one while I was too drunk to taste anything. Next step was drinking a really nice beer while sober. Now I can drink any and enjoy the taste of most. Must just be an acquired taste.
>>26139297 >you're implying that the sample of individuals on this board is not affected by self-selection bias Actually dude I'm implying that you're all liars. It's the same concept as "dick size" threads. Everyone is 7 or 8 inches and nobody is average or below. You're fucking all delusional liars that lie to random anonymous people on the internet to inflate your self ego.
As for the screencaps. Fuck you, I want you to point out every spelling error right now.. Go ahead I'll wait because I only found a couple minor ones. So to say it's riddled with it--false.
Seriously, why the fuck are you arguing FOR people anonymous lying about their IQs? The fuck is wrong with you?
by personal experience, i would say that it only brings you narcisism, depression, being able to understand stuff really fast but having to play dumb a lot of times to let someone else catch it first so you're not considered a jerk
>>26136752 >145 iq, professionally tested >tfw my problems in life probably have nothing to do with being "too smart" and thats something people just tell themselves to feel better about their failures
>>26136752 Repetitive work is unbearably boring, you can't create bonds with most people because your interests are too different and you can't stand emotional bullshit because you can see through it. The good parts is understanding new concepts easily
>>26137965 >received compliments on the way I make love from all but one of my 9 sexual partners >make love from all but one of my 9 sexual partners >my 9 sexual partners Who the fuck are you trying to fool, nigger?
>>26136752 you look at everyone with disgust I think its how Jean Paul Sartre described it in Nausea. He looked at everything and was disgusted and nausea with everything he saw. So he ended up despairing and hopeless
>>26140189 >have high IQ >be lazy >perpetual failure your entire life because you can't live up to the bullshit standards people expect you to because you have a high IQ and it makes you depressed as fuck which means you fail even harder at fucking everything and you consider suicide everyday because life is so fucking shit and you feel hollow inside and you cant even cry anymore
>>26136752 It means absolutely fucking nothing unless it's in conjunction with other personality traits such as being able to work hard, and having the motivation to do more than just sit around and jerk off.
Even with that motivation, it just means you will have a slightly better ability to understand new concepts than another person with a moderate or lower IQ.
The scale is only really useful when discussing real life ramifications of your score for people with well below average results.
>>26141039 I am too intelligent to fall for that faux-pas jew shit. I am self aware and can safely say I am above intelligence and i have no need to pay to get it tested. I save money, and you obviously dont ha
