    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    My Intelligence Has Betrayed Me.

    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...

    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.

    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.
