You have 30 minutes to answer 60 questions. In the last 5-8 min I just started picking random answers, so at least I have an excuse for if I feel like being in denial.

How can I come to terms with the fact that I'm not that smart? I score as INTP, so that's an extra slap in the face.

>INTP "The Logician"
>IQ 87

LOL, sorry. I'm not the smartest guy either. At least you're not retarded, right?
>>

Fun fact: AAMD said the standard of retardation was possesing an IQ of 85. But they had lower the standerd down to 75 as 85 was considered too ofensive.

How can I avoid hating myself. The trait I respect most I do do not have.

I feel ashamed to be me.
>>
17 more than me.
>>
does Anyone know if any forums exist for people that have low IQ? That way I can maybe find some people with similar struggles to myself.

>inb4 someone says something generic like "just go to tumbler
>>
>>17580880

do you find life? Do you have an alright time socialising? Do you feel embarresed about having a lower IQ?

Sorry if these queastions are annoying. Its just interesting seeing someone in the same boat as me.
>>
>>17580881
where do you think you are ?
>>
First, realize that IQ is a completely superficial number that doesn't have much real world value. You can for instance easily increase your IQ just by practicing the type of questions they ask. Additionally, if you have a bad education, it will also reflect on that score as your reading comprehension is worse. Basically, fuck IQ. Just learn useful stuff instead of worrying about that shit.

>t. low IQ scum

Tell yourself whatever you want, bud. It makes no difference

IQ literally means jack shit. It's only the highest correlated attribute for success because it's connected to delayed gratification.

In other words, be a good, hardworking person who's honest about himself and you'll go farther than half the population.
>>
>>17580836
>I answered randomly to an IQ test
Then take it again and do it proper.

>"I score as an INTP"
The Myers-Briggs test is bullshit. Take it again tomorrow, take it again in two days and marvel at how you magically gain different results.

Now, how do you call a scale that measures the same subjects differently most of the time as you keep repeating measurements?
>>

>You can for instance easily increase your IQ just by practicing the type of questions they ask

Any test I've taken in the past seems to focus on basic logic, pattern recognition, etc. I guess you could familiarize yourself with the test format and do better that way, but the score you get without "practicing" is more honest. I'd actually be interested to see if you can substantially raise your score through practice. Because it's not like it's a test in advanced science or mathematics, it doesn't require studying or memorization, all the information you need is laid out right there in the questions. Either you can figure it out or you can't

>be a good, hardworking person who's honest about himself and you'll go farther than half the population

That's true. More than half, I'd say

>IQ literally means jack shit

That is false

>It's only the highest correlated attribute for success because it's connected to delayed gratification

This sentence has no meaning

Actually this measures quite accurately your mental stamina. Many people claim they are bored of some tasks that require focus for 30 minutes and it's simply because their mind could not handle the workload.
>>
>>17580836

Far better to be an idiot and actually be doing something with your life than an internet neckbeard claiming genius-level scores and doing jack shit with his own.
>>
>>17580836
are you black ?

It's impossible to measure such a thing. You might be terrible at working out logic but you could have extremely high EQ or be very quick witted or be a great artist, etc.
>>
I just took that test and holy hell the last few questions were intense, partly due to how little time I had left but mostly because the patterns seemed almost random. I got 56/60 right with 0 time left, scoring me an IQ of 124.

I suggest taking the last few questions slower and really thinking about each pattern. You're probably supposed to be higher than you placed, OP.
>>
I do agree with everyone that I should just be hard working. I'm in college at the moment and Im pretty sure I work harder than most people. Good way to compensate I guess.

Is it possible to improve my intrinsic intelligence in any way? Many I should look into smart drugs, they would probably help with mental stamina.

I feel like I have lost the genetic lottery and the only thing I have going for me is work ethic. So if anyone knows any way I can improve intrinsic ability that would be greatly appreciated. Although I doubt something like that exists.

Does anyone know much about emotional intelligence ? I definitely don't have much if that, anyone got any ideas on how to improve that?

Also to the people saying IQ doesn't matter, maybe you are right. But regardless of that, I still have always felt a bit slower than the people around me. The simple fact is, some people play life with a bad deck of cards. I'm one of those people.

Lol no. Sorry to dissapoint.

someone post the link

For the app? Just search for " raven IQ" in the app store/play store.

Actually some people just need to be taught how to think more efficiently. I recommend trying Alan Schoenfeld's mathematical problem solving. See if this book can make your life easier.

>>17580968
Thanks for the suggestion :-)

Anyone here know about neuroplasticity? Could this be used to improve intelligence ?

Somewhat, google it.

It can easily be raised. Like solving a sudoku, the information is all there, you only need to think about it. But of course if you've done 20 of them you're faster than your first one.
>>
>>17580996
>Anyone here know about neuroplasticity?

besides it being a meme on /ic/ nope
>>
>>17580836

I took the test and got an IQ of 120. The first time I took an IQ test I got a 114. The other between these two I got a 116.

Basically, the more you take them the better you get at them. They are an excellent indicator of ones ability to take IQ tests.

Try again in a couple weeks when you are not tired stressed or hungry. You will do better.
>>
>>17581082
I think it also shows how good you are at recognizing patterns and solutions, high IQ would be pretty useful for a math or CompSci major but maybe not so much for artists or something like a bus driver.
>>
i'm a doctor and ive never had the attention span to complete an IQ test

30 minutes? i'd rather fap or something

Please tell your patients this before you operate on them or give a diagnosis.

A few years back I had a real obsession with IQ. I toured all the mensa held IQ tests and even a few others that I could find.
Started off at 128 and with repetition and practice got it up to 137. This took me 9 tests and about a month of practicing.
I would've kept on going but they basically told me to get fucked.
Feces was currency.
>>
I scored high because I took the first min or 2 skimming through the answers, made a Mental note of the questions I can answer fast and easy, answered those and then began calculating at the very last of my time how long it takes me to scribble a circle VS how many answers remain.

Yhe, Everything sounded really good! You will become an Interrogator! Every one is going to fear You, with these credentials and this score You can become almost anything You want, But We will have to put You in a Submarine for the first 2 years... I was like F that shit... Im failing the Medical exam Unless its a Submarine Stationed in Hawaii...

Nigga, Raven matrices are as reliable as a Vietnam-era M-16 bathed in mud.
