Back in school they made me take one of these tests, I don't remember exactly what I scored but it was high. They said that Alfred Einstein himself scored a few points lower than me at that age. My teachers and and psychologist thought that I would grow up being a genius.School wasn't my thing though. I don't think you can put too much weight on the IQ tests.
>>734204768 Yeah IQ tests still have flaws, nothing is that accurate, IQ tests are better than most other things since it focuses on problem solving rather than memory. So its not perfect by any means, since some people have (out of boredom i guess) taken them enough to figure out the general basis of the questions, and then figured out how to answer the questions quickly and correctly.
>>734205558 Last time i took it was about a year ago (was in therapy and was going into college so they wanted to know, idk really why honestly). I scored 163, though im not insanely knowledgeable i do have great problem solving skills due to to my thought process. I like the IQ test for prioritizing problem solving capabilities over raw memory and knowledge, but I feel it really is immprobable to make any sort of test that fully shows the capabilities and knowledge/wisdom of a person. So fuck what anyone says about being smart or high IQ or whatever the fuck, just dont be a cunt and dont act like you know about something you dont and you will be seen as a smarter person compared to someone who always thinks hes right.
>>734206558 No, but it helps when you're trying to convey your thoughts to another human being in a predictable form they might be able to follow and understand. Thoughts are useless if you cannot pass them on to others.
Was in a few mental health institutions over the course of three years, took a few different tests. My average is 147. I'm told that's insanely high, I still feel stupid and am not doing anything with my life tho.
>>734206666 Checked, nice quads. And yeah that is understandable and true. I am terrible at explaining anything, especially my thoughts. So that sucks. I can only solve shit but i can not for the life of me explain how
>>734204650 Tested at 150-160 (somewhere in there) in the seventh grade. No motivation to do things though, been depressed a long time. Alcoholic, I take one day a week to do my studies, rest of the days I'm shitfaced. Bottom line I'm actually pretty damn smart, I just don't like it so now I'm 23 and don't remember much of the last five years
1 to 70 - Mental disability 71 to 84 - Borderline mental disability 85 to 114 - Average intelligence 115 to 129 - Above average; bright 130 to 144 - Moderately gifted 145 to 159 - Highly gifted 160 to 179 - Exceptionally gifted 180 and up - Profoundly gifted
>>734206667 Everyone ITT is either average or below average, what this thread is actually measuring is how big their egos really is.
No one super smart would waste their time, and IQ posting about their "superior intellect" over the internet, they're out there being successful.
Online IQ tests are specifically designed to give above average results every time just so you feel inclined to share their links with other idiots who also want to feel smart. It's a scam that losers fall for every single time, and then they come here to pretend they're better than everyone else.
Really if you ever see anyone boasting about their IQ online, you should feel embarrassed for them.
You mean their original business plan to steal a bunch of ashkenazi jew scientists from the nazis and europe in general and encouraging eugenics and breeding programs while also creating planned parenthood to abort as many minorities as possible.
Or do you mean their current "business" plan, which can be summed up as: "give us a bunch of money so that you can say you're in Mensa and feel your false superiority complex." ?
>>734206334 reminds me of the beta club in middle school. (yeah, i know, but that's what it was called.)
it was for the smartest kids in the school. when i was drafted, but then refused to pay them money to join, i had my 7th grade english teacher tell me in front of the whole class that i must not be "beta club material". to which i responded, "yes, but i still have $5 in my pocket"
I have to admit I never looked at it the way you mentioned, but it really does make a lot more sense, considering how even though IQ isn't inherited, it's not uncommon to see parents and their kids being "mensa" members.
>>734206861 I do notice that in certain situations (mainly back when I still went to school), but it generally feels like I'm way too socially inept and, by extension, stupid to actually be a productive person and use my potential.
>>734207303 This. I cannot for the life of me understand social cues or implicit meanings in things people tell me. I mean, I'm great at analyzing poetry, but communication? Fuck no. I can explain stuff pretty rad though.
>>734207356 If you're not successful you don't have high IQ.
It really isn't that hard to figure that out. People who are not successful and claim to be super smart are nothing more than idiots with delusions of grandeur, which is shockingly common, especially here.
>>734207356 True, IQ is 90% problem solving skills. Which is why its still not the best at determining intelligence. As long as you have common sense and arnt a cunt, then youre better than most people
>>734207356 Eyyyup. People don't seem to get that part about "being smart". It doesn't automatically mean you're successful or happy or popular by any means. It just means you *could* do more than an average person *if* you had the motivation, energy and time to do so. fckin depression man.
>>734207519 Nah man. Intelligence really just means you _could_ do more than average _if_ you had the motivation, energy and time to do so. It also means you are more like to be unhappy with your life though, so the energy part is what gets most people that are inbetween prodigies and average joes.
>>734207709 Nice to hear someone on the same page man. For me, never was able to sleep because I just kept thinking. Sounds like a textbook delusional story, but whatever, it's true. Turned to alcohol when I figured out how to make my own, been just depressed instead of exhausted since then. It's rough out there
>>734207476 I'm quite good at teaching people, i just don't have the patience. I work in an IT department of around 50 people and most of them don't know their arse from their elbow. If they have an issue they dont instantly know the answer to they try and flog it off to someone else, usually me if its Server or Network related. I've litterally had to tell people on second line to "turn it off and on again" I think thats were most of my frustration comes from, the people around me every day just have no willingness to try solving a problem or learn something new.
>>734208018 Ego, the doom of modern society. On a serious note though, I actually had three tests done at mental health institutions, my average was 147. Probably a lot lower by now, what with all the drinking, but still. I am by no means a genius, yet it would fit you well not to dismiss this whole thread as a "buncha pussies comparing dicks".
>>734208018 >be legitimate unsuccessful genius >knows how anyone can fuck their life up >understands that intelligence is only one part of success Motivation is a bigger part than intelligence. 80 IQ and a love for life and passion for work will go on to be far more successful than 160 IQ and alcoholic depression
You would know that if you were actually intelligent, trust me. High IQ makes you see the world in a way no one else sees it, and it's scary how it makes you better than other people, you don't have to do much to clearly perform better at everything you try.
What you're doing, right now, is a desperate attempt to defend your ego from realizing you're not as smart as you want to believe you are, but it takes a long time for you to be comfortable with that, and I can't blame you for not being able to see it as it is.
>>734207556 This is interesting bait, I'll give you that.
My favourite part is probably how accurate the Facebook test was, based on the favourable results. Right now in bizarro /b/ a similar autist is bemoaning how inaccurate the same test is because he didn't like the results.
Mine's about 156, took the test as a part of an interview process I underwent when I was 18. Had the choice of paying a 30 bucks membership fee or not, either way the company I did the interview with paid for and used my score in their screening process. I paid and became a member of Mensa, didn't do much with my membership though...but thinking back, I should've.
Must be pretty interesting to just have coffee and chat with a bunch of likeminded (or likeIQ) folks.
I can see we have a bunch of plebs here who are unhappy and think that it's all about the money. Go take the test bitches, see if you qualify.
Having said that, having a high IQ won't do much if you don't work hard. But it does afford you a unique way of looking at things and thinking - which will give you ideas -the next step is to apply those ideas of course.
Some high IQ indiviudals such as myself prefer to get by doing as little as possible however. Why work hard when you can experience all that you need to with a welfare check and an internet connection?
I seem to have received a score of 148, I was in 4th grade, my parents had just divorced and the school basically forced me to go to a psychologist. She made me do what I reckon to be an IQ test together with some physical puzzles and some sort of weird shapes that had to be put together on my last day. I found out about the results pretty recently though, and it kind of explains why I felt so different than everyone I ever met in the past. Ask me anything (inb4 what are you doing on 4chan?)
Somewhere in the low 150's. It's been ~15 years since I took a proper IQ test when I was undergoing an all day evaluation for possibly having ADD/ADHD or being on the autism spectrum... Don't IQ's typically increase with age, based on how they figure them?
>>734210206 It might be a little too personal, but do you often find yourself lost in your own thoughts (usually when you're alone) and you lose the perception of time while you just sit there and think?
>>734210869 Would you like me to correct your writing? >Here you go Anon! > Version one...Noone here has a legitimate IQ. You can't take IQ tests online and get an accurate estimate you fucking bunch of retarded children.
It costs hundreds of dollars to get a REAL IQ test >Version two... Nobody here has a legitimate IQ, You can't take IQ tests online and get an accurate estimate... You are a bunch of retarded children.
It costs hundreds of dollars to get a real IQ test.
>>734210869 It's true that online tests are basically always completely unreliable, but "hundreds of dollars" is a bit of an over-exaggeration. Go to a psychologist near you, ask them for a test. Won't be "hundreds" of dollars.
>>734204768 "Alfred Einstein (December 30, 1880 – February 13, 1952) was a German-American musicologist and music editor. He is best known for being the editor of the first major revision of the Köchel catalogue, which was published in the year 1936. The Köchel catalogue is the extensive catalogue of the works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart."
>>734211208 1, Yes, there is some inaccuracy in self reporting. 2. stupid people are not proud of stupidity (generally) and are unlikely to post their IQ. 3. people with similar IQs tend to be attracted to similar pasttimes. /b/ is no exception. IQ threads tend to attract people with high IQs. 4. At any given time, there are thousands of people on 4chan. In a busy hour, there are tens of thousands of people viewing this board. Yet, any given thread will get only a handful of people to post. It's highly selective to begin with - and this specific thread is far more selective than normal.
So it's not unusual to have a half dozen people honestly post accurate IQs near, at, or above genius level on any given day. It is also not unusual to have a dozen people lie about it in the same thread.
>>734204650 You guys know this test was designed to detect mental retardation, not genius, right? Getting a super high score is bad, getting a score much lower than 100 is bad. As you grow older your IQ score from previous years devalues.
100 is a 'normal' brain, aka white people from the north-western semi-hemisphere of a certain level of affluence and cultural immersion
That's. fucking. it.
Trying to quantify human intellect is a maddening waste of time.
Just base your opinion of people off their looks like God™ intended
I made a test that was about easy question and it was a test type exam while I was in school. I dont know what mark i scored but while i was responding to the questions I had a lil mistake and permuted two lines and i wrote the A responses in B chart and B responses in A chart so i must be on the left of the 100 XD
>>734211753 Even worse than that is the fact that general intelligence is not strictly math and logic. So there's a longstanding debate as to what, exactly, should we test, how many of what categories there are, and who the fuck cares anyway.
>>734211873 Once again you are scrambling to save your ego... How pathetic, an IQ score on an online test will not affect your life. Enjoy your cozy hovel in your mother's basement... You should go now your waifu pillows miss you.
>>734204650 used to be 177, first tested at 9 cos am so spasticated at maths, dyscalculia, numerical dyslexia. problem solving faculty very good apparently. then they said have pmdd / pre menstrual dysphoria that exacerbates adhd. all just fucking labels, imo. personally feel like more around 77.
>>734212500 This High IQ does not necessarily equal high achievement.
I call it the low hanging fruit trap. I'll explain by analogy. Tall monkeys can just pick the low hanging fruit, so they rarely have to climb the tree until all the low hanging fruit is gone. Then they find they're not as good at climbing as the other monkeys who had to climb to eat since day one.
A smart person often finds a lot of subjects easy, at first. So they skate through life in grade and high school never really developing their study habits. Then they get into college and find some hard shit and they don't have the study skills necessary to persevere. The sad end is a college dropout with a high IQ and a miserable labor job.
>>734210293 This is a bullshit, first question makes no sense, second is fibonacci, i dont understand the third and what "the best comparison" means, at the fourth i have to dtart using my mind and make an effort. Fuck this shit
>>734212942 Perfectly accurate. This is exactly what happened to me, even got a 35 on my ACT and earned my first year of college credits over the last semester of high school. Three years later now, failing miserably
>>734204650 "Gifted" classes in HS rated me at 129. I know IQ means shot if you don't have the drive to learn. I'm doing "smart people stuff" like forming an llc for software dev, working on research grant, but I still feel retarded because I live with actual geniuses. At least I'm somewhat creative and fun.
>>734204650 Somewhere aroud 115-130. I am an egineer in the automotive industries.
I am pretty clumsy though and half of my colleagues are smarter than I am. Oh yeah and I am beta.
I dont think that IQ means a whole lot actually. It surely didnt do a whole lot good to one of the smartest persons to ever walk on earth (IQ 250+) Look it up https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_James_Sidis L
>>734216921 Well there is still a record that he enterd harvard with 11 and finished with 16. You have to be insalely smart for that.
It do actually think that an IQ test will not show you reliable results for very smart people. Its like trying to measure the temperature of boiling water with a thermometer made to measure body temperature. Its just out of scale.
>>734216386 >"I have been researching the veracity of primary sources of various subjects for about twenty-eight years, and never before have I found a topic so satiated with lies, myths, half-truths, exaggerations, and other forms of misinformation as is in the history behind William Sidis". Probably a smart af based on his accomplishments but yeah, that's about all we have to go on I suppose.
>>734216983 >>734217264 Don't know the exact name of the test, standard deviation used was 15. So 130 = about top 2%. My score, above 135, would be somewhere in top 1%. But like I said, it was an official Mensa admittance test administered by a licensed psychologist etc.
>>734217421 Thats the thing about IQ tests, like you said. On my report that came with the results it stated that my POI scoring was most likely higher than indicated because of the test limitations so god knows what it really is. Cant be arsed finding out by taking a test targetted at higher numbers.
No doubt he was a smart man whatever his scoring. No question about that. If you give me a problem, ill get it solved thats what I'm good at but to do what he did... I wish!
>>734204650 I last did mine when I was like 16. I got 132.
Don't listen to them though, they're POINTLESS. I'm retarded as fuck - all they really test is ones ability to see abstract patterns, and they don't even do it very well. It's like a poor autism test more than anything.
>>734219505 To be more precise anyone who is truly intelligent will test well on an IQ test but there are those who still test well and aren't that intelligent. This means if you tested at a high IQ but struggle at life you really aren't that intelligent just a good test taker.
>>734204650 took an iq test at an ivy league school 10 years ago while i was attending state uni. qt3.14 research grad said that my iq was a 138 at the time. doesn't really mean much to me being as i dropped out a year later only to return to school now. man i fucked up my 20's.
I get 135+/125+/max score on all the tests I do online.
It feels they are bullshit though - they make them easier, so you will take a paid real test or click on some link to "read more", or want to link to the page to show how smart you are so the site get more views and more ad rev.
I did however do a test on a Swedish newspaper today. https://www.svd.se/iq-test-skulle-du-komma-med-i-mensa/om/sverige 10 questions that felt ridiculously easy. I had 10 of 10 - and only 20% of 50.000 had 10 of 10. So perhaps people are quite dumb.
I would agree with this post. Not saying I am some genius as seemingly most people are in this thread - I rarely tried throughout schooling then hit uni without the hard work/studying habits and had a rough go.
When I started to try it was too late but I did well in those classes.
Hard work ethic and above average intelligence will trump high intelligence and zero work ethic any day. Being smart is only part of the equation to being successful.
>>734224212 >Hard work ethic and above average intelligence will trump high intelligence and zero work ethic any day. Being smart is only part of the equation to being successful. This guy knows what's up.
