    A little known fact is that Richard Feynman, The legendary Nobel prize winning physicist of the late 20th century, with the razor sharp wit and humor, had once taken the IQ test and scored only 120 on it- just a little above average. I think he had taken it when he was fairly young. But it was not something he like to talk about very much. Did not stop him from winning the Nobel prize in physics. He got it for his groundbreaking work in quantum electrodynamics and quantum field theory.

    And the ones that do think that they are highly intelligent, usually are nothing but egotistical assholes.
    Yes that tends to be what it is. It's almost like a club if you will.

    They even have a name for it.

    Well it wasn't a genius and what it says it was genius in who it provoked.

    It's saying it's okay to be something which you cannot help being it's really rather benign. to suggest it's racist to say it's okay to be something that you can't help being is absurd. It was designed to get people to say something that was absurd and it worked wonderfully.

    It managed to rile up people who operate under a double standard. They took the bait like a ravenous catfish.

    It wasn't really trolling it was showing the world that double standard.

    So now it's a crybaby victim-card. Why didn't you admit that before?

    This Thread is intended to present material on IQ research that will be explored by all members that wish to participate. Arguments both for and against (as well as neutral) are all welcome. If members have further research/findings they would like to present, by all means, please do so--any & all contributions are encouraged.

    [Note: Due to character limitations, I will present some initial thoughts/posts immediately following the creation of this Thread]
    Have taken several accredited tests, average right around, 152, and I can be dumber than a bag of rocks at times. Just means some of us are better at a few things than most others, it just does not mean much in the big scheme of things. Just saying...............
