Immeasurable IQ

by Stephen
(ISle of Man)

I have taken one IQ test in my life - in April 2005. I thought it was a computer aptitude test (I took a few of those in 1978 after graduating). The test contained 80 questions to be completed in half an hour. I wasted some time and completed 72 out of 80, but I am convinced that if I hadn't wasted some minutes, I could have done all 80 questions. I scored 132 - I feel that I should have scored 142 or 144.


I asked a very clever man (Ibrahim) what is your IQ? Quick as a flash he said 160, and then qualified it with "I administer tests and can do them all; I am very good at completing IQ tests".

If an IQ test is comprised of 80 questions, how does one score more than 160? How can somebody have an IQ of 190? They must take a test with 200 questions and have a ridiculously short amount of time to complete the test, and have such a sad life that their only interest is having an "immeasurable" IQ. On reflection, I am rather glad I didn't score more than 140! I am quite happy to be "top 2%". On a BBC "test the nation", I scored "top 1%".

How much space have I got? I have a degree in mathematics and am good at logic. I hate lawyers, because their lies are unanswerable by logic. I have suffered because of the words or ignorant lawyers who are not as intelligent as me.

Post about IQ afficionados.

Hello
I am from Australia and write/paint/compose/draw and read voluminously. My IQ is in the range of 150-60. My verbal IQ is exceedingly good. I also find that people seem below me, as I think you understand. Aloofness doesn't like company. Your friend Ibrahim was a catalyst for you, am I right?
