    Conversation between two ballplayers:

    Reggie Jackson: “I have an IQ of 160!”

    Mickey Rivers: “Out of what, a thousand?”

    supposedly this actually happened

    6HZ1W3J-since you keep boasting about what a genuis you are and how high your iq is why dont you tell us what your iq is and where you got tested, n then we could all see for ourselves if its true or not…;)

    coffee addict: there is a wealth of info and research found online connecting higher IQ with particular emotional and personality characteristics. Rather not go into it here, but it’s easy for you to find if interested.

    #1054344

    even if your iq was 200 i dont think i would know who you were…my iq is in the above 140 section too…but i dont think that that would identify me…

    Little Sally Saucer, its moderately higher than kaczynskis, ill just say that.

    though its funny if i took an iq test right now i dont think id do too good… so obviously they aren’t 100% accurate at “detecting geniuses”.

    Why were you tested?

    #1054353

    6HZ1W3J – you may not be that unusual. Look up the book “Children above 180 IQ” by L. Hollingworth. Since that time, it has been found that children of 170-200 IQ exist far out of the proportion one would expect from the bell curve in the population.

    The most reliable tests today only go up to 165, unless the child is tested at a very young age. I personally believe that while the same difference exists between 130 to 160 IQ, above that level academic accomplishment is more about personality and the tests get less and less accurate at differentiation between 170 and 200.

    And in case you’re really feeling lonely, I know more than one person above 175 IQ.

    “And in case you’re really feeling lonely, I know more than one person above 175 IQ. “

    Have those people retested by a real professional. (only 1 in 400 score above 145).

    Pac-man, BH I have a few smart friends. (Every one of my friends is smart, in a different way.)

    daiyezooger, 1/70 Ashkenazi Jews score above 145 IQ, vs. 1/700 white Americans.

    My IQ is in the gifted range but I truly feel that this is a gift. I try to use it to help others (free tutoring etc.) I’m naturally curious and always wanted to know my IQ so I took one of those ‘real’ tests, not just a free online quiz and I consider my score accurate. My advice to those out there who are highy intelligent – don’t brag, you did nothing to deserve your IQ.

    #1054359

    123bubby I tried taking several tests and they each came out different!!! could someone post a link, and whoever wants could take it from the same website???

    I agree. So can everyone please take this short IQ test and post their results at the end. Thanx.

    Staff IQ Test

    Below are four (4) questions and a bonus question. You have to answer them instantly. You can’t take your time, answer all of them immediately. OK?

    Let’s find out just how clever you really are.

    Ready? GO!!! (Scroll down)

    ***NO CHEATING!***

    First Question:

    You are participating in a race. You overtake the second person. What position are you in?

    ==============================

    Answer: If you answered that you are first, and then you are absolutely wrong! If you overtake the second person and you take his place, you are second! Try not to screw up in the next question.

    ==============================

    To answer the second question, don’t take as much time as you took for the first question.

    Second Question:

    If you overtake the last person, then you are…?

    ==============================

    Answer: If you answered that you are second to last, and then you are wrong again. Tell me, how can you overtake the LAST Person?

    You’re not very good at this! Are you?

    ==============================

    Third Question:

    Very tricky math! Note: This must be done in your head only.

    Do NOT use paper and pencil or a calculator. Try it.

    Take 1000 and add 40 to it. Now add another 1000. Now add 30. Add another 1000. Now add 20. Now add another 1000 Now add 10. What is the total?

    Scroll down for answer.

    ==============================

    Did you get 5000?

    The correct answer is actually 4100.

    Don’t believe it? Check with your calculator! Today is definitely not your day. Maybe you will get the last question right?

    ==============================

    Fourth Question:

    Mary’s father has five daughters: 1. Nana, 2. Nene, 3. Nini, 4. Nono.

    What is the name of the fifth daughter?

    ==============================

    Answer: Nunu?

    NO! Of course not.

    Her name is Mary. Read the question again

    ==============================

    Okay, now the bonus round:

    There is a mute person who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one’s teeth he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.

    Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself?

    ==============================

    He just has to open his mouth and ask, so simple.

    #1054362

    LOL, Shticky! I got 3 and 4 right immediately. I goofed on the others though.

    suppose its you with the 135 and your friend with the 110. how do you think that would go.

    That’s the relationship I have with many of my friends and we get along very well. I just don’t hang out with them when I’m looking for intellectual stimulation.

    The high IQ members of MENSA that I’ve met are all nuts,

    You haven’t met too many members, have you? And isn’t that loshon hora?

    how off are those IQ online tests? i took the first one that i googled that said fast and accurate. it was fast, but don’t think it was very accurate – gave me an IQ of 150. (my real IQ, i’m sure is lower, not higher, in case anyone was wondering. ? ) anyone who really knows their IQ, can you tell me by how off these tests are?

    How quickly can you find out what is so unusual about this paragraph? It looks so ordinary that you would think that nothing is wrong with it at all, and, in fact, nothing is. But it is unusual. Why? If you study it and think about it, you may find out, but I am not going to assist you in any way. You must do it without coaching. No doubt, if you work at it for long, it will dawn on you. Who knows? Go to work and try your skill. Par is about half an hour.

    I got it, flowers. But I won’t ruin it for everyone else.

    Because IQ tests tend to be normed on rather small samples, it is questionable whether there is any difference between an IQ of 145 and an IQ of 160. Also, IQ tests get re-normed about every two decades so a IQ score given today is not comparable to an IQ score from decades ago. This is known as the “Flynn effect”. One researcher has concluded that if the average American IQ today is 100, it would have been only 80 about 80 years ago. (Yes, people are getting smarter.)

    i think i know it too – so do i guess or let others also guess.

    i’ll try to write a sentence that is similar.

    this is kind of hard to do, but i think i did it. am i correct?

    charlie – is it just that we’re generally more educated today?

    but, anyways, how do those quickie on-line ones compare to the real IQ test? anyone know?

    #1054373

    this is kind of hard to do, but i think i did it. am i correct?

    Yes, but if you make it “am I right?” it would be perfect to the end.

    flowers, I think that I know what is wrong with the paragraph but I am not 100% positive and I don’t want to ruin it for anyone else. Do you plan to publish the answer? (before I drive myself meshugah)

    There is no “e” in that entire paragraph. It’s a pretty common letter, so having it missing is noteworthy.

    mother in israel: thanks for the correction. i didn’t even notice the “e” there. i think i was trying to get the whole line without an e, but i goofed. ?

    but, at least flowers saw what i meant.

    try writing without an “e” – it’s not so easy.
