    I'll agree it's very limited in its scope.

    I remember being in "honors" classes in junior high and high school. One of my best friends was at the opposite end of the spectrum. He took remedial English and math and struggled with those. We both had muscle cars, I had a 71 Chevelle and he had a 74 Nova SS. I could do basic stuff, oil change, valve cover gaskets, etc. When it came to rebuilding the carb, he knew what to do and didn't need to follow instructions. He was "dumb" when it came to IQ tests but a genius when it came to practical applications and therein lies the worthlessness of IQ tests. They're great if you want to measure one's ability to solve those types of problems, but they're far from conclusive.

    bah, you must have passed a more difficult test, and as TC said many people aren't very honest about their IQ.

    If the average IQ on DP was so high we would not have conservatives anymore

    Actually, that is issued. It's how we deal with the political juggling. Without it, we may as well shoot up postal offices.

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    My parents had me tested. 145-150. All that IQ must have gone into my specific skill set which I use to make a living, cause I certainly don't feel that bright.

    I did take a couple online tests as well. One was 145, other 90. That's right. 90. Apparently the people who made that one believed that math was the only valid measure of a person's intelligence. And when it comes to math, I'm truly dumber than a box of rocks.

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    The answers in here appear to be surprisingly honest (more or less). Usually when a "what's your IQ?" question pops up in a group of people, the unspoken rule is to wait as long as you possibly can and then say the highest number.

    I'm pretty good at math.

    idea Re: What is Your IQ?

    I was given the Stanford-Binet test to see if I was eligible for the first "gifted" classes in our area and scored 165. I never knew the score until I had already messed up my life pretty badly, but in the end, I turned out to be just fine.

    I love my job, have a great family and really enjoy life, although I do lack some common sense occasionally. So what if I never became a nuclear physicist?

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    Just look at the results of the poll. The average IQ is 100, and nearly everybody here would be above 120 or 130.
