I Have a High Iq

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 479 People

    I took an iq test at 17

    and got 146. I'm 35 now, and thought it must be wrong because I don't feel intelligent. I took another the other day at age 35 and got 144. Maybe I'm just good at reading patterns? I don't know. I wouldn't say I learn particularly quick, but when I get good at something, I get...

    I Have A High Iq And Am A Complete Idiot.

    I've had a few professional IQ tests done and scored between 145-160, which is something I usually keep secret as I don't enjoy being called a liar. I would have difficulty convincing people I even have average intelligence. I'm always the last to get a joke (I tend to take them...

    Mine is around 130 or 135,

    I forget... sometimes I feel really stupid though, like I'm not good enough. I was tested by a psychologist, while getting tested for mental disorders. Apparently I'm really good at recognizing spatial differences.

    Complexity And Peace?

    My internal torments go far beyond my past experiences. I am wracked with a burden of knowledge, intellect, and an estrangement from my fellow man. I will never fit in with them, although being alone in my solitude is often a blessing, albeit tumultuous internally. I've had quite...

    Where Have The Geniuses Gone?

    I was surprised that the designation of genius has disappeared from the IQ charts. They now just use different categories of gifted. IE moderately gifted, highly gifted, superiorily gifted, etc. So guess what, Geniuses are extinct. We're only gifted to some degree.

    162

    I was professionally tested several times in college, with a median of 162. My IQ has done very little for me. College was a breeze, and grad school was a breeze, but a Masters degree doesn't guarantee a job. I've had a hard life, and being intelligent does nothing to defect...

    Never Did Me Any Favors

    Having a high IQ does not make your life any less difficult. In my case, it just gave my adolescent psychologists and therapists another excuse to exploit and experiment on a troubled young girl who just wanted to be loved.

    It's Actually Quite Funny

    When I was younger, I was always told I was smart. Teachers believed that I was tutored or was forced to study all the time. That actually wasn't true. I was the most flippant little kid who ever walked the Earth. It was just easy for me. As long as the teachers did their...

    IQ Median Of 165 And I Feel Like The Brunt Of Everyone'S Joke!

    The last time I took an IQ test I scored a median of 165 (I took a few within a full psychological exam, but I wasn't told the results until I requested the paperwork recently), I was 14. I've learned Spanish, ASL, a little bit of conversational Arabic and Hebrew, as well as a...

    I've always thought it must be wrong as I don't feel intelligent. Maybe I'm just good at logic/patterns? I don't know. I don't learn particularly quickly (or slow) but usually get pretty good at stuff after a while. I am good at most sports I try. I used to swim for England and...

    Tread Carefully

    I have a theory that those that are highly intelligent also may have a little insanity; or what "normal" people would call insanity.  My issue is OCD.  I like my house and kids clean.  I like my floors swept, the beds made, and the clothes neatly folded in the drawers or...

    If anyone says they have an IQ higher

    than 144, you know they're bullshitting. 144 is average genius level, and geniuses are rare. I took an IQ test last year and my score was 113, which is slightly higher than average.

    Why Apologize For Being Good At Something?

    The first think you learn when you realize that you are more intelligent than the people you surround yourself with, is to conceal your cognitive abilities. When i was 15-16 my parents started to realize that i was not a normal teenager, and it sort of frightened them, as they...

    FFuckk everyone in this experience,

    while you're at home in your underwear boasting and more then Likley lying having a large iq is nothing to brag about. It just measures your learning capacity, it doesn't actually mean you're smart.
