I Have An Iq Over 130

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,746 People

    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...

    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 ***.

    and i feel completely alienated

    because of it. i find it extremely difficult to connect with others, with the exception of a few friends. i dont have many similar interests with others and i often get frustrated if people can't follow along with the conversation at my pace. the lack of meaningful social...

    Mine is way over that,

    but I know plenty of people with lower IQ's that are smarter than me in other ways, I just happen to be good at IQ tests!

    142

    Well, 142 is what the test says. I thought the testing process was fun. The differant things I was as to do was pretty cool. Funny thing about the number...it is just that, a number. We all have strengths and weaknesses. And regardless of the number I still can't spell worth a...

    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 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?

    I Play Dumb

    I'm in the 140's, but I choose to "play dumb". I'm also a slacker, people are always telling me to go further in the medical field but I don't enjoy school. I work for a group of M.D.'s who know that I have a lot of medical knowledge but I don't expose that side of...

    as you might think either. Still I guess it's better than not having it.

    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...

    To join this here group after completing an egotistical search for various representatives of surrogate IQ's. That is to say, I've yet to see some editorial/essay proof from this forum of who claims to posses an IQ over 130. Being though that you couldn't have signed up and...

    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 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.

    IQ's Triple-edged Sword

    To this day, the psychological and psychiatric communities question the validity of the measures used to assess intelligence- how much weight should any IQ test or battery of tests have when each one makes so many assumptions about what intelligence is and how it manifests in...

    I'd say its primitive out there but more accuratly - people are far more general. Its ok not to understand as long as it works. "The Tipping Point" opened my eyes. The brightest guy lives alone. Eh, that's not my future. Instead "Yes" or "No" can be complete answers...

    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.

    I fear my knowledge because I fear my self

    and so I only have access to a limitless potential of my true self. For what if I had total access to all? What If I were capable of great self discoveries and self worth, then wouldn't that shatter my sense of self doom? And yet I strive in a constant oscillation to accept...

    Oh College...

    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!

    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".

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.
