    Yeah, alternately, the ad sometimes shows a picture of George W Bush and says that Bush's IQ is 125.

    Isn't that simply uncanny?

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    My IQ is the same as everyone else's. That is it's an inaugurate measurement of a certain type of something that has never been defined.


    Other than that, I've never had an IQ test that I know of.

    In fact, the overall average Black-White IQ gap has been reduced by one third over the last 30 years (although the median IQ difference between black and white adults is still 17 points).
    The test is racist. The end.
    It's also classist and anglocentric/ nationalistic/ xenophobic, as the poor of all races and also first-generation immigrants of nearly all ethnicities score significantly lower than middle-class whites.

    If the test wasn't racist, the IQ/ race gap wouldn't have begun closing since the end of Jim Crow/ the beginning of civil rights.
    It's not like black people were troglodytes who just suddenly and miraculously began to evolve 30 years ago, and that this miracle just happened to coincide with our decision to make racial discrimination, segregation, and general abuse illegal.
    It's only been one and a half (or possibly two) generations since the civil rights movement. Black people haven't had time to change. The reason they suddenly score so much higher on IQ tests is that society has changed, and the reason they still don't score on par with whites is that society still hasn't changed enough.
    Do you have info on the closing gap in IQs? My guts tells me there is an enviromental cause in much of the difference between African-American and White scores but I've never had the info to defend that position well enough yet. One should not be so PC though so as to completely rule out a large school of scientific thought of the subject, that believes there is large genetic component in the difference, out of hand.

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    I've never taken a legitimate IQ test that I'm aware of, so I don't know what mine would be.

    It is stunning to me the heightened level of brilliance that the internet seems to attract. Any time I've seen or discussed IQ levels on the internet the average seems to be well into the 130s, which, if my bell curve chart interpreting skills are on point, represents the 99th percentile of IQ scores.

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    I've never taken one but figure I'm about average, which is 100. I was a 4.0 student always but didn't take difficult courses. I put great importance on grades and the courses in non-secular education towards the goal of being an elementary non-secular school teacher aren't that difficult.

    Given the claimed IQs compared to the messages highly suggests that the IQ test aren't accurate.

    I also suspect that people who have or see themselves as having very high IQs might have social skills and compatibility problems. A person believing s/he has superior intelligence probably isn't healthy and might not be a very intelligent self perspective. I don't think I've ever posted a message on the Internet or ever told anyone that I am smarter than s/he is.

    If I ever did test and it was at a higher than average IQ I wouldn't tell anyone. I'm at least smart enough to know that.

    1. 100 isn't average for a woman of your race and socioeconomic status.

    2. A lot of the people on this thread have taken some sort of on-line pop quiz and mistakenly think that the score it gave them (generally around 160-190) is some sort of accurate reflection of their IQ.
    Actual IQ tests aren't routinely administered to the general populace; if you've had one, it's probably because you've been 1. incarcerated, 2. in the military, 3. under psychiatric care, or 4. a voluntary participant in some sort of research study.

    I used to think they gave them in college, but I've known a lot of college graduates who have never had one.

    Though you are correct that IQ tests are not routinely administered to the general population, and your 4 exceptions are accurate, there is one other exception. Some schools (not college) give IQ tests for several reasons. If there is the suspicion of a learning disability or other problem that hinders academic success, or if the school believes that the child is gifted. Also, some private schools used to give them. That's how I got mine.

    They also give it to the kid who makes non stop jokes, runs around the classroom screaming obscenities yet aces every test. He typically scores below 80.

    They were routine at expensive private grade schools from what I recall.
