    Well I was being conservative.

    That's a good point. I've known a lot of people like that. I think they have undiagnosed asperger's syndrome.
    I think there's millions of people running around with undiagnosed asperger's.

    Possibly since it's a rather new diagnosis. My son has it.

    Sooooo....

    You were under "duress" during an IQ Test? Interesting. Interesting indeed.


    Yeah. I was in a juvenile psychiatric facility.

    Many poor people and minorities only take IQ tests in prison, or in preparation for trial. I also consider this "under duress", and I believe it effects the test's efficacy, and therefore the reliability of the statistics.

    My son was diagnosed with it, but later they said it was a misdiagnosis.
    I don't know. I think I might have it.
    It is a very newly discovered syndrome, comparatively speaking.

    I'd love to see some support for this claim. In my experience it's been the exact opposite - poor people tend to work far less than rich people.

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    In the summer of 2003, on Faux, also known as the “Fox Television Network”, they ran a IQ test called “TEST THE NATION”;I took the test for what it is worth scored a 126.

    Also, Gunny, you seem to have forgot that the CORPS issued you a GCT test (general classification test),at least they used to in the” OLD CORPS”. My understanding at the time was that score was about ten points above the normal IQ test, scored 136 on that; still ended up in artillery as a gun pouge,MOS 0811.

    I don't know about that. Rich people have people clean their homes, mow their yard, fix/maintain their car, raise their kids, and perform home improvement. Yes, they may spend more time at the office, but a lot of their duties have been outsourced to allow this.

    It depends on the job. An uncle of mine is advocate and he works around 60 hours/week, while if you sell hamburgers at McDonald it's no more than 35 hours/week
