I Have An Iq Over 130

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,513 People

    I had a test for my IQ

    when I was fifteen and I was 138. I haven't had one since, and it's eight years later, should I take another?

    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...

    I Was Tested A While Ago, But I Am 140something Officially.

    It's kind of an ego boost, but analyzing it, I don'tthink it's THAT meaningful. I did some MENSA test online recently, and I think that knowing how to answer those questions has a lot to do with education, and not only innate intelligence. One of the simplest questions was a...

    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.

    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".

    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 ***.

    Never questioned in depth my situation because never had the need to. Briefly- I've got an IQ of 162. Pretend to be dumb at times because I do feel like people feel we are freaks. Or they just alienate you. About my Family. Since I've been always so brilliant. I did well...

    My School Calls Me 'gifted And Talented'.

    In the real world, I push doors that say pull, I misread situations, I do stupid things. I'm the same as everyone else. In class, I'm easily bored, I'm either asleep, doodling or listening to music. I never seem to pay attention but pass every test with flying colours, always...

    People Dont Like Me Because I Am Smart.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...

    Over 160 Actually

    But it's no big deal. I personally don't believe much in IQ tests. They are biased, qualitatively gender centric (towards males) & subjective. My opinion on a high IQ is it helps me with a Rubik's cube & not much else. I still continuously set fire to my kitchen, make bad...

    What Having An Iq Above 130 Means To Me

    It means I think rapidly, delve into subject matter in depth, and feel deeply.   It means that on  (many? some?) occasion(s) I make a choice and determine that the outcome of my decision  regarding the choice will have negative consequences, and do it anyways.

    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!

    172

    I had it tested when I was 12, a year ago. I think this is very high. I also am a bit unusual though. I have OCD and many phobias. People think I'm very irrational so I was suprised when I got this score.
