    Questions:

    1. Are Texan tests bigger and tastier?
    2. Can I bring my various small-arms?
    3. Will there be deep fried food?
    4. Since everything is bigger in Texas, is your IQ higher, as well?

    This sounds like a genuinely cool field trip.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    Being intuitive does not imply delusion. Introversion might imply it weakly, although I hesitate to paint introverts with that brush. Serial killers are a special case, by any measure.
    Having a fantasy and being motivated to violence by it are entirely different.

    Killer!

    Independent of IQ, I would imagine that N's give the impression of higher intelligence due to a few factors:

    1) Intuitives are usually interested in and conversant on many topics.

    2) the ability of intuitives to find connections is often startling and impressive to others. If you are considered someone whose opinion is sought out because of this, you will seem quite intelligent to others, regardless of math ability.

    A few days ago I found my IQ score from 1994 (I was 11). I was tested at school for the GATE program (Gifted and Talented Education). Score was 134, sd15.

    A few days ago, I took a free online test here and got 133. They claim an sd of 14.889 and a result distribution as follows:

    Intelligence
    Interval-------Cognitive Designation

    40 - 54-------Severely challenged (Less than 1% of test takers)
    55 - 69-------Challenged (2.3% of test takers)
    70 - 84-------Below average
    85 - 114------Average (68% of test takers)
    115 - 129-----Above average
    130 - 144-----Gifted (2.3% of test takers)
    145 - 159-----Genius (Less than 1% of test takers)
    160 - 175-----Extraordinary genius

    I am non-gifted by this definition, nothing more.

    And I WOULD LOVE to learn quantum field theory, and it annoys me that part of what is holding me back from that is my inability to solve some silly puzzles fast enough.

    I don't think IQ is important. My personal experience is a prime example.
    To learn, well, what higher princple is there?
    Why isn't it important at all? In what way does your personal experience tell this?

    With today's technology? Or eventually?

    If it is possible today, can you teach me?

    Yes, that was pretty much what I was trying to say before, or at least part of it.

When you intuit a truth, you can work your way backwards with reason to see if it makes sense. It's like the difference between hacking your way through untouched jungle toward an unseen destination, and following a rough but pre-existing path back from your endpoint to your starting point to see if the endpoint matches the destination you had in mind. For those of us who aren't gifted explorers, the latter is the best option.
    I am not intuitive in that sense of the word, so I guess I'm out of luck.

    I got 138 on that online test, which is much higher than what I was professionally tested at. It's odd that it is so close to your real score for you.

    How was GATE for you? I hear they have excellent field trips

    Heh. Well, I guess I've dumbed down a bit with age LOL. Actually, I do feel more fuzzy in general, but I'm on some pretty heavy medications.

    About GATE...

    It's actually a painful memory...I didn't get in. Although my IQ was more than high enough, I had to score above a certain number on BOTH the verbal and mathematics (reasoning?) portions, but...I missed 1 (yes 1) too many questions on the mathematics portion (although I had a substantial cushion on my verbal score), so I was rejected. My teacher who recommended me for the program was outraged and fought their decision to no avail.

    Their criteria is rather disturbing, in my opinion; "giftedness" comes in many forms other than mathematical and verbal (ex., artistic, musical), and a person "gifted" in one and not the other should not be disqualified from the program. Many of my friends barely made it on both scales but of course were accepted into the program.
