    Maybe I just have a perverse sense of humor.

    Not nearly as funny as the sheer amount of Einsteins I've apparently been hanging with online.
    That's kind of funny too, though, when you think about it.

    IQ tests and other standardized methods of quantifying intelligence are more art than science.
    For starters, they don't work very well on unwilling subjects.

    The wealthy can afford good education; however, money is often more a burden than anything else. Weathly parents often stifle their children's attempts at being social (especially where reationships are involved) and thus those kids do not learn proper socialization skills.

    They become rich and snobby because they do not understand the norms of socializing, which leads them to be offended by everything that they do not understand to be be "friendly" or at least within their definition of friendly.

    The lower half of society has the opposite problem in that regard. Parents are often working two or more jobs just to make ends meet. As a result, they are not home to intrude in their children's relationships. Thier children tend to find affection and kindship among thier peers to fill the void... even when they shouldn't.

    Vader, this is one of the most intelligent posts I've ever seen you pen, and one I agree with, wholeheartedly, and a position that I have been professing for years.

    This is true. I have seen clients of mine take an IQ test when they were extremely depressed, and take it again, months later when they weren't. The IQ differential I've seen has been as high as 15-20 points. IQ doesn't fluctuate like this under normal circumstances, and can be explained by one's emotional state when taking the test.

    Wait, was someone on this site forced to take an IQ test under duress? Could that have resulted in a lower score than that person should otherwise have scored? I'm glad you mentioned this, because I hadn't heard anything about this until now. Certainly not the last 13 times it was brought up.

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    Who knew that a famous politician posted here?

    One of the most overlooked episodes during the 1987 collapse of Biden's campaign was a snippet of footage captured by C-Span in which the Delaware senator, in response to a question about where he went to law school and what sort of grades he received, delivered this classic line: "I think I have a much higher IQ than you do."

    If anybody can get him to answer this one question, we can look at his response and find out:

    What will you do to make government smaller, reduce taxes, and balance the budget?

    Then we will see if he can provide a rational solution.
