    Being ridiculously smart is like being ridiculously tall. Everyone looks up to you but you still don't fit anywhere.

    Tested many times as a child,

    and once again recently for occupational reasons and I'm median 176 now. I feel inferior some moments because of it. Quite impossible to ignore what it appears others cannot see in this life. It in no manner makes life an easier track to traverse. I have a hard time accepting...

    It's A Number. It Doesn't Matter

    IQ is only a 50/50 indicator of future academic success. While I myself have been very academically successful, it has been difficult to see others waste intellectual capacity away because of their choices. For most of my life I was proud of my intelligence quotent. I entered...

    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...

    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.

    A Bittersweet Tale

    With a full scale IQ in the 95th percentile, there's no doubt that I'm at least capable of doing logical tasks easily. However, having a discrepancy between my verbal and performance subtests (99th and 75th percentiles respectively) does make it difficult for me to easily...

    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...

    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.
