    I'm no expert but your IQ is higher than this.

    Yeah Goleman is a great reference ! Read his book "social intelligence" on holiday last year.
    He also taught me that a lot less is genetically defined than we think. And that the early years are very influential.

    I also did a mensa test once. "Only" scored a 105 (after scoring 130 on their online test). I was unable to complete any category in time. But I had smoked 3 joints the night before. Guess I really did have a "high" IQ :p Most participants there seemed very T there to me. Sheldon Coopers and the likes

    I'm purty smart (last test, 130ish) but I can be such a manchild fuck up, so therefore I'm dumb.

    But yeah, it's more about someone having a good support system, or being in a fertile environment for that intelligence to flourish.

    If you've got a low IQ, but work your ass off and say, have several good mentors, you can easily be WAY more successful that some genius that happened to be born in a butt f*** cultural/educational wasteland.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Each thought's completely warped
    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.
