I Have An Iq Over 140

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 274 People


    I have an IQ of 153 and I am a member of Mensa, but what does that really mean? Sure, intelligence is a great quality to have, but I know that there are more important things in life. I am not defined by a number, and I certainly don't think of others as 'inferior' to myself. I...

    Does This Really Mean Anything?

    The last time I had it tested I was about 24.  It was 145 at that time.  I wrote a story previously about how this "don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing", meaning that without emotional intelligence, this means nothing.  Now I wonder, what is it...

    Knowledge And An Open Mind

    For me having a high IQ means that the universe as a whole is my backyard. I see so many people who cannot think beyond the confines of their town, city or even neighbourhood. I can look up at the stars and see countless possibilities, I can easily imagine what life would be...

    I was good in science courses in school and it has been useful in my work but I still cannot figure out people.

    I Have An IQ Of 163

    I have a pretty high IQ. So what? I may be smart, but I do not ever make others feel stupid. If anything, I help everyone. I love helping. People that always have all a's make others feel bad, but not me. I am one of the exceptions.

    I Make A Lot Of Mistakes... (more Thoughts)

    I think "high" IQ has a lot to do with making mistakes. I feel that developing intelligence has a lot to do with following through with your initial intuition, even if it brings about adverse consequences. The first thing I realize is that I am not born all knowing and all seeing...

    Makes Me Humble

    On the one hand I realize that I will never know everything in this life time, and that there are people with higher IQ's than I, and it makes me strive to be better. I also realize that there is beauty beyond the mind, and within the hearts. On the other hand when I confront the...

    What is an IQ>140 without desire

    and ambition tempered with wisdom? It's that gym membership you never use, that great story you never wrote, the dream you never realized or the gift you never opened.

    145 . When I took the test

    and got the results, my score actually surprised me and my teachers. I'm the last person you'd expect to have an IQ over 140. My grammar is the worst, maths is horrible, and everything else is too. Personally, I expected mine to be slightly below average (based on age and...

    Yes, I do. So what? Does

    that make me better than anyone else? I will admit that I enjoy talking to intelligent people, but IQ is just a number, it doesn't dictate a person's success or achievement, or even his or her knowledge! Also, in my experience, "geniuses" tend to lack common sense. There are...

    When People Marginalize You For Being Smarter....

    And avoid you because they can't handle the profoundness of your words. Ever feel torn between being sharp and being ordinary? What about when you were younger?

    I have an IQ of 174 according to my

    University's test almost two years ago. But then again, what the hell does an IQ matter for? I've met people with IQs of 124 or 150 and they are idiots. I've met people with IQs of 103 or lower than 110 and they're smarter than those with the higher IQs. Still, it feels nice to...

    IQ Doesn't Mean Shat

    I have topped out at 149, but I do not have a 6 figure income and I don't have a string of letters after my name.  Most people I have met with high IQ's I wouldn't want to be around for more than 5 minutes.

    148. I'm a reasonably successful professor.

    But one thing I've learned is that whatever happiness I enjoy has little to do with intelligence. Often it can get in the way, in fact, of real happiness.

    I'm an outcast though,

    so I guess I paid for it in that way, I guess the worst part is that no one seems interested in anything I ever want to talk about, it seems I think too much. Also the facts that I'm always expected to be able to do everything...
