    With An IQ Of 130 And Above...

    ...and $1.75 you can get a cup of coffee. IQs in that range place one in a relatively select group. Relatively. There are, in the general population, about one person in every fifty with an IQ that high. But bear in mind that some people have IQs so high they are literally...

    When I was in 9th grade I had a teacher drag me

    into a Mensa meeting - it was a beautiful old house but in every room people were debating Environment vs Genes. I thought it was the dumbest thing ever. What a waste!!!! That's why I didn't join and I haven't been back. Learned a lot from that teacher though!

    I Have An Iq Over 130 But..

    I don't really believe IQ tests are that useful though. High IQ certainly correlates with abilities people associate with intelligence but when it boils down to it all you are really measuring is a person's ability to do well at a certain type of arbitrary test.

    MENSA Ain't So Clever.

    Took a MENSA sponsored IQ test about 10 years ago, and scored 160 - but it came with a note saying that they couldn't accurately measure over 160, therefore it was the top score they could give.  For goodness sake, this is MENSA, you'd think someone would have figured it out...

    I took one as a favour to a friend

    who was completing her dissertation. She was investigating whether personality and intelligence were related. She used the Myers brigs personality test and a bog standard IQ test. I had a 146 for the IQ test 😊

    135... I'm really pretty average,

    so I don't think it's helped me succeed in life, but if I ever get on Jeopardy, I will kick some ***.

    I was gonna post in the 140 section

    but technically 140 is not over 140. I know it's not really that useful of an assessment but it still feels weird to have scored high

    We had a state mandated iq test

    and mine was 160. I was so proud. But I know that it's just a test. There are people way smarter then me at things I could never do and I admire them all the more for it.

    When I was 12 I had an IQ of 150.

    I hate it though. I'm sick of everyone expecting me to do good in life though. And I don't mean to sound like an ******* but I honestly feel entitled to have a job higher than minimum wage. I deserve it.

    12 Squared

    At age 12, had an IQ of 144. Working backwards (using the formula Mental Age divided by actual age times 100) I found out that at that age, I had a mental age of about 17.5 years old. Nowadays, people think I'm 23 online (I'm 15). Some people think I'm older. This approximates to...

    I Score In The High 130's But Who Cares?

    Really, all it tells me is that I'm good at I.Q. tests. I think there are various forms of intelligence some that cannot be measured on a test. Furthermore, a high I.Q. or intelligence will not determine you success or happiness in life.

    Connection Between Intelligence and Mental Illness

    Sometimes I wish I wasn't such a smart ***, I wouldn't over analyze or worry so much about things I cannot change, it drives me mad.  I truly understand when they say "Ignorance is a bliss".

    I don't try to please people anymore. Because I can't sort the good ones from the bad ones. And the more I see human behavior the more it disappoints me. There is sort of a cult of fear, hatred, stereo typing. I don't think it is new, but....I always was a bit different. I used...

    My final year in college my IQ tested at 160, and i tested negative for STD's so it was a pretty good year for me. I'm pretty sure I have lost a few of those points living in the "real" world consisting primarily of mediocrity and cheap booze though... Take that Society!
