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 an approximate IQ of 153, which is actually reasonable.

You should check out <a href="http://www.experienceproject.com/about/excellentinallthings." target="ep_blank">EP Link</a> She is pretty smart too and I think you would like her.

Is she a mod?

Well, you should just read her stories and you will know all.

Please give me a link.

Doesn't the link show up on your screen? It shows up on mine . . . Her name is excellentinallthings -- try that in the search box.

It didn't show up on my screen. I know her--she's far from modest though, and I absolutely despise people with an inflated ego. Besides, she didn't know what I was talking about when I asked her about Chaos theory.

it stops being age based sometime between childhood and adulthood. I don't know why, maybe because intellectual life stagnates for most people sometime between 16 and 25.

No, it's because the formula for deriving IQ is your mental age divided by your actual age, multiplied by a hundred. After a certain cohort, the proportion just gets too weird and is rendered obsolete.
