What's your IQ /sci/? If you don't know then make a good guess. Also state what your field of work/study.
>Kanye has an IQ of 160
No it isn't. Go on, provide a source if you can. I bet it's a bullshit source. Like how his mother claimed he 'mastered' Mandarin in three months just by attending a Chinese secondary school, but now he can't string so much as a sentence together when pressed. I get that language skills atrophy over time unless you keep using the language, but never to the point of completely forgetting everything. He is an arrogant prick with connections that gets by largely thanks to the guilt of white, upper middle class, young adults who only think he's cool because they've been told he's cool a certain number of times.
Impressive. Why is it that people with an IQ over 150 tend to always end up in maths? I understand that mathematics is incredibly challenging and rewarding with many vital real world applications, but do you ever find it a little esoteric? Did you ever, for example, think of becoming a medical researcher and working towards vaccines for as yet unbeatable viruses?
>That's like asking a Ferrari owner to drive in a Polo
If the Polo cures me of Polio, I'll take that over the Ferrari that just drives me around in circles at increasingly high speeds.
You're saying cutting edge mathematics gives you a better high than working as a successful virologist? Why - because leading mathematicians tend to have a greater degree of unwarranted self importance? This is all just subjective anyway.
>but you have no way of knowing Math releases the most dopamine
Of course I do nigga. My dopamine meter goes to 99% when solving math problem, while its at 40% while doing life sciences. Its at 70% while doing physics
I don't know for sure. But I have several friends who are at 150 and I'm better at maths than most of them.
On the other hand, that might not be that related to IQ.
So I don't know, but if I had to guess I'd say around 150.
Maths grad student
>Kanye has an IQ of 160
His IQ is, at best, about 105. Maybe 110. And mind you I'm being very generous with my assumptions this morning. And no I don't think he has a lick of common sense either. I bet his record producer and his media relations guy is working HARD for their money just to clean up the stupid shit he says and does on a daily basis.
My stated IQ is 146, per a Stanford-Binet test. My field of work is organic chemistry.
Field: Electrical Engineering
Graduated summa cum laude. It's funny - I thought I'd have nowhere to go in life with an IQ sub-retard, but when my councillor came to me with a leaflet for EE at MIT, I knew my calling had come.
Also IQ is bolshit, I too three different test and they all yield different results. One of them determined me as "average", while another - "high intel", and I forgot the third one. Wutever
Got scores ranging from 130 to 140 from every abstract pattern recognition online test I've done but in reality probably closer to 100-115 with more verbal based testing.
Gotten easily into mechanical/manufacturing engineering school and to geology program in university but pretty much dropped out of both because of social anxiety and depression.
never had a real test but made the Mensa online test and scored full points in half the given time. not that it proves anything.
Probably going to collage for next semester, want to do something like Astrophysics or Quantum Physics (Studied a entry course at at Stockholms University and I enjoyed it)
Where can I go with a SAT Math Score of 630? Was hungover when I did it so could probably bump it up a bit if it is required.
Doing the SAT Physics this spring as well.
So where should I try to get in?
My dad actually sold his G35 for some cheap Honda hatchback a few years ago.
That year he also bought a condo in Dubai, so I don't think he was in dire straights or anything, either.
My IQ is legitamately 90, I had myself professionally tested in my junior year and it devastated me and where I once had hope for an academic career that stupid fucking result ruined any modicum of confidence I had.
I mean, I always knew I had to work a bit harder on average than my peers to keep up, but I thought my IQ was around 115-125, not fucking double digits. I have an RA lined up this coming summer (I'm not the best student in the class by far, but the professor liked me because I always asked him good questions after his lecutures), but now I just think I'm not suited for a math career. Maybe I'm letting /sci/ get to my head, but I don't believe that I can keep up the pace in postgrad where most people who succeed in math are around 140+, hard work can only take you so far and I think I'm already at the point where my genetic limitations prevent me from getting ahead of the pack. I don't know if pushing myself through grad-school just to wind up in postdoc limbo with crappy publications is worth it.
I'm thinking about either becoming a high-school teacher or finance at the moment, so I'm adjusting course appropriate. I can definitely graduate with a decent GPA (3.7 at the moment) if I keep up the hard work and avoid more graduate level electives so there's that.
Never have your IQ tested guys. Drink one to us brainlets if you make it to the top.
Well, you never know until you try. If you have that type of GPA, I think you'll be fine in grad school. Not every person in maths is going to be a terrence tao tier genius who can solve triple integrals in their heads.
No, I'm done with IQ tests online or real ones.
The test I did had shapeshit btw, mostly it was constructing patterns from smaller model shapes with colour coded patterns which the examiner timed, I actually thought I was pretty fast on these too, but guess not (yeah, deep down I still believe my result is some kind of mistake).
Yeah, I'm going to do this RA and see how well I can perform as a researcher. I just don't want to end up unemployed after having a PhD like all the horror stories I've heard which is why I'm starting to look at other options. As I understand it takes some prep to get into finance/actuary/programming etc. career coming from so I think that would be a wiser investement than grad-school, but we'll see.
if you're still in school do it man
you only live once
i was in the same position, it's worth it for sure if you have the drive to really pursue physics (assuming academia and the sort, not industry, you can go into industry doing more or less the same job as a meche but with a higher starting salary)
126 according to the online iq test designed by two mensa guys
I'm just learning quadratic equations lol.
You cannot even begin to comprehend the tortuous existence one must suffer in order to begin to gain a basic understanding of the fundamental mathematical concepts used to build a foundation for learning how to begin understanding the most basic of basic mathematical concepts required to fail at getting a PhD in Mathematics.
I was born with the knowledge of every mathematical text ever written. I spent every waking moment for the next 30 years studying complex mathematical concepts such as Banach spaces, Banach topology, Banach rings, Banach fields, Banach vectors and Banach algebra. By the time I entered graduate school I had solved every unsolved problem in mathematics which existed up to that point and then discovered many more theorems which changed the foundation of our understanding of the universe. I then proceeded to drop out of graduate school after the first five minutes because my professor apparently thought that my life's work was mere child's play. His name was Banach.
I saw you never took the test.dk one, but have you ever had your IQ tested online? I'm curious whether there would be any significant disparity between professional and online testing. Personally I feel like I'm pretty damn stupid, but online tests say I should be around 115-119.
Roughly 126, I got a 165 LSAT score with minimal studying as I was working full time when i wrote the test. I am Canadian so I am not studying at Harvard or similar school, but all of the law schools in Canada are more or less similar in quality.
Take about 30 off if you want a realistic estimate compared to professional tests (based on my differential obviously). Though I'd just take a real test if I were you and really wanted to know.
Nice. Didn't work for me though I'm going to delude myself into thinking it's my actual score and the irl examiner made a mistake a mistake later tonight.
Are you >>7836626 then? Undergrad/postgrad/industry and are you doing any research if so what field?
Why not math/physics?
Are you going to live the dream in academia or go for dosh in industry?
Girlfriend has an IQ in the upper 170s I believe... she was a mensa member and is about to get her bachelors in physics.
I'm a neet... we're pretty compatible though so I guess I have an above average IQ. The only aptitude tests I've taken were FCAT where I got upper 90's as a kid and a 96 on my asvab... that doesn't mean shit though.
140 clinical, but they also said i had autism and adhd, so i don't know if i believe them. probably closer to 120
CS (natural language processing) grad student, CS/math minor bachelor's
i get conflicting results. anywhere between 115 and 147. i'll assume the lower end. Physics Mathematics double major. i'm looking to go into computational physics though. i'm enjoying the research i'm doing in this field.
Pic related is first try, mandatory overestimation
Applied mathematics, part-time musician, idealist, intp and miserable dad
Miserable cause even if I dont consider myself very smart, my expectations are much too high
>151 on the Stanford-Binet L-M
>undergrad double majoring in political theory/thought and pure maths with a concentration in philosophy
I prefer philosophy to maths, but after you reach a certain point in both disciplines, they're quite similar.
I plan to study law afterwards. It's not a bad investment in my case because I got a full ride for undergrad, and I'm a legacy at my mom's law school. Then I'm inheriting my mom's law firm, which has a great reputation in my home town.
As a side note:
>all these 160+ IQs

spoilt little twat
Well, my parents nearly starved to send my brother and me to a reputable private school while paying off their grad/law school debt, which I'm eternally thankful for.
I had no luxeries growing up. I shared a room with my brother growing up because we couldn't afford anythihg bigger than a rowhouse. I was told that education is of cheif importance, and I took it to heart. My father let me know from day one that I can never count on a handout.
I feel blessed for having the parents I have, but that doesn't mean it was easy.
i go to an engineering school and at least half the student body is on adderall. they literally told us at freshman orientation that they had a psychiatrist on staff who could help us if we were having "concentration problems".
What school? I'm in the same field but not in Uni yet. I'm getting basic requirements out of the way first which will only take about a year and a half(up to calc 3 essentially), if that.
If you don't want to ruin the school's "integrity", no need to answer. I'm just curious.
As a sociable guy, I like hang out with a wide variety of individuals on my campus. In my experience, math students are the most brilliant people on campus, but they're all amphetamine addicts whose idea of a social gathering is a ten minute break with other math students to get a cigarette and coffee while bitching about their workload.
The engineering students were similarly (generally) stimmed up to handle the workload, but nowhere near as interesting.
By the way, won't say the school's name, but we have a great reputation for aero e, mech e, and business. The math department is alright - most of our math students end up going to grad school at Princeton or Stanford, seldom sticking around to get their grad degree here.
I would imagine.
The fact of the matter is, under the guidance of a competent physician (doasge, affects on BP, dependency etc) amphetamines like Vyvanse are nootropic drugs with very few negative side effects. There ought not be a stigma around them like there is.
It is sort of beautiful that a good chunk of the scientific community puts themselves in harm's way(most likely dying earlier than they would) by using drugs to advance the future of society; how fucking beautifully altruistic.
The reasons are hardly altruistic. At the risk of sounding like a tryhard, I use amphetamines (with a methylphenidate booster in the afternoon), caffeine, nicotine and sometimes eugeroics, is because I have an insatiable drive to read and learn that sleep just interrupts.
It started in my freshman year of high school. I read Republic, and from there, I always had my nose in a book. So my drug use is quite selfish in my case.
Feels pretty bad.
I remember taking this test 2 years ago and I think I got 130-ish.
Information systems 3rd year, 3.6 gpa.
Not at all. Low blood pressure runs in my family, and I meet with my psychologist every two months and my GP every six months. Been on this regimen for about 4 years now - no abnormalities.
Well, I hope all works out for you with your concoction of stimulants and you make progress in your field(engineering?)
HBP runs in my family but I still don't think I would make the same conscious decision you have chosen. Once again, best of luck and I didn't mean any of what I said in this short paragraph in a negative way.
Are you referring to Computer Systems and Information? I believe my CC even wants Calc 2 for an AA in that. I looked into it myself for a short period of time because I saw CS(E) was math heavy for me by my standards but I'm still choosing to stick with CS(E).
Up to Calc 3 required for the AA and Physics 2 with Calc 2. Interestingly enough, CS(E) requires more credits than any other major just for an AA at my CC.
I got an AA in business administration from a local CC and transferred to Penn State to complete a B.S. in Computer Information Systems.
There is a similar major to CIS called Management information systems. They both require calc 1 + stats at most.
Penn state smeal is regarded as one of the top schools for c/m information systems and is constantly camped by recruiters, so I don't know. Make your own deductions.
I'm glad that it doesn't require any more math, because frankly I'm borderline down syndrome when it comes to calc.
What is it that you find hard about calc 1? I scored 5 points more than you on that iq test and found calc 1 pretty trivial.
Is your algebra and trigonometry background not very good?
If we are here to come up with random numbers, I wll generate some using R,
> sample(160:400, 20, replace=F)
 317 279 339 278 352 250 298 370 341 216 277 195 249 231 264 184 322 221 284 398
here you go, those 20 IQ values are scientifically measured from 20 random selected strangers using advanced techniques to ensure accurancy.
I swear half of the content on /sci/ is people arguing about iq and comparing theirs with others. But technically, literally everyone in the world is dumber than you but also smarter than you. Intelligence is (idk if it's the right word) subjective in a way.
feels like I'm average or below it sometimes, but my dad got tested and says my score would definitely be 5-10 points higher (130-140).
/sci/ is a big joke. Pic related.
Get off the 4chins and get passionate about your field.
>language skills atrophy
Yes. In hs I took ap spanish and they had us reading light novels and it was fun.
I cant speak for shit right now. Id be able to dissect a sentence but the skill is gone.
Language is kinda weird when I think about it. I had Spanish up to fluent through school (10 years ago).
Now, I can only reliably recall immediately around 80 words (given time to think about things, maybe triple that), but, by fucking god, I can go through a written text and tell you what every word's part of speech is, what the conjugations of the verbs mean, and basically all of the other grammar without having a fucking clue what it says.
We took this test when I was third grade, my teacher told my parents I was above 99th percentile in the state and needed to be pushed up in my classes. I wish I could get my score somehow.
I remember actually enjoying that test, I didn't know what its was for at the time and the teachers did not explain it besides saying "select the choice that fits the pattern" and I just started doing shit, looking at these patterns and just making unexplainable sense out of them.
What does IQ and researching matter if we do not have the TIME to make it possible to explore the universe?
the universe is the final destination, after earth there will be nothing of human civilization as we know it if we cant survive in space
according to your IQ you should have the mental capability of someone with down syndrome. You can savely say, that the test done by your doctors must have been shit. IQ doesn't represent one's mental fitness.
Im proud of my acheivements despite being bored or line retarded
IQ tests are meaningless. They just test your ability to memorize patterns. You can study for IQ tests. I will never take an IQ test because they're a waste of time. Don't you realize it all depends on you, not some meaningless number. Hard work is the most important thing. IQ tests are silly. Stop thinking you need to take them. It is just meaningless. Lol.
I've been professionally tested to have an IQ of ~22. they say its --**literally**-- the highest they have ever heard on the planet.
I don't ascribe to any one field, i merely look for challenges. i read mochizukis Inter-universal teichmuller theory papers like a childs book, though i wouldnt know what thats like since i started reading physics textbooks at 6 months old. If someone tells me the name of a kids book i can literally predict with 100% accuracy all the text and images in the book. not even kidding.
>At least 100, have never been tested or bothered to look
IQ: I don't know, probably like 10
I'm in 3rd semester CS but failed everything except math lectures, because I'm too lazy to learn or do something at home
I also suck at programming
I have a week left to decide if I want to continue to waste my time
the only problem is I don't know what else to do
I have no skills and I don't look good
I guess I'm fucked
kanye thinks bill cosby is innocent
