    Don't worry. You are totally right. That sentence was funny as hell.

    I've gotta proofread this crap I spew once in a while.



    Although it's only fair to point out that it would only be "sheer irony" if I wasn't the guy saying he has an IQ < 80.

    You would totally EXPECT the guy with this low of an IQ to make these errors.

    The OPPOSITE of what you would expect is that he would not be prone to these errors.

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    Probably too late in the thread to introduce new information...but here's a website listing the average IQ scores of various groups.

    IQ Scores - AssessmentPsychology.com

    125 Mean of persons receiving Ph.D. and M.D. degrees
    115 Mean of college graduates
    105 Mean of high school graduates
    100 Average for total population
    75 About 50-50 chance of reaching ninth grade
    I'd be surprised if the average person at debatepolitics wasn't as smart as a college graduate.

    Interesting... good info.

    I know that many people here have Masters Degrees and other higher level degrees and credentials. Many here teach or counsel as well, and a few seem like they are very good in their fields. I would say that a site like this attracts a higher amount of intelligent people than you would simply randomly find at Church, for example.

    I'm astounded at the fact that the average MD has an IQ just 10 pts higher than the average college grad. I'd like to think I've done much better for myself than the average college grad, but my MD girl is far smarter than me.

    I think that IQ is only one part of someone's intelligence. Being able to act within a social context is also another measure. Some who have high IQ's have the social skills of a 3 year old.
    Drop the drunk score (although that is a pretty good score for a drunk). Was the first one after you were 18? If so, average it in with the last one.

    I expected the average to be well above 100, perhaps as high as the mid 130's. I am really suspicious of the very large numbers that are over 140.

    Tell us all of your scores so we can see how they compare. Do they deviate a great deal?

    I've not ever taken one since, online or otherwise.
    Test yourself again and see if your score holds up.

    I think a lot of people want to see their real scores. I am sure there are at least a few online tests that do not give inflated scores.

    As for mine, the three times it was measured, I came in at 135, 132, and 141.

    I also don't think raw IQ scores are an accurate measure of total intelligence.
    Your scores are within the ballpark. But the huge numbers above 140 are suspect

    The lowest score is probably the most accurate.

    As for my scores, when I was tested at 10-- ironically, to test for learning disabilities-- I scored off the scale the test was calibrated for, and all they could tell me was that it was higher than 163.

    Professionally-administered tests as an adult place me consistently in the mid-140s, with an occasional fluke score in the high 130s or low 150s. The scores would probably be much higher if I'd spent more time in an intellectually stimulating environment and less time in a drug-induced stupor as an adolescent.
    Korimyr, your IQ is more than ample to comprehend the principles of free market economics and the dangers of big government, regulation, "public" (government-run) education, excessive taxation and social-welfare programs.

    100 is the median IQ for everyone, and first-generation immigrants and underprivileged minorities routinely score below 100, bringing the median down.
    Yet many researchers have made a compelling case that the discrepencies are cultural in origin, not biological; to wit, the test is biased in favor of middle-class whites (and possibly males).
    And this is what I believe.
    I remember reading in a magazine some years ago that the avearge Hispanic and the average black scored about 10 points below the average white. However, it said that the average Asian (Chinese and Japanese) scored about 5 points ABOVE the average white.

    True. Chinese and Japanese score on par with Ashkenazi Jews.
    Other east asian subgroups- Korean, Thai, Vietnamese, Hmong- do less well.

    I am already well-versed in your Libertarian propaganda and pop-economic nonsense, having myself been an active member of the Libertarian Party for some time. My education in these matters is quite complete-- and it is on the basis of that education that I have rejected your naive ideology.

    The market economy and the government alike both exist for the benefit of society, and not vice versa. When this relationship becomes confused, as it does under Authoritarian and Corporatist governments, it slowly erodes the cohesion and identity of the society.

    Sensible market regulations, progressive taxation, social welfare programs, and yes, public education, are all necessary to prevent democratic societies from regressing into Authoritiarian or Corporatist regimes.

    It wouldn't hurt to try a few tests on the web and find out.

    Last time I took one it was 152. Not bad.
