    It's because the test is innacurate! Really!

    ...but they are so much fun

    They just don't measure the same stuff the psychologist's test measure.

    I think my real IQ is around 135. But they never revealed what it was as a kid. I was in the "gifted" program, and 135 is "gifted." Also, I think I'm at the age when IQ starts to decline.

    Online tests are ridiculously skewed. One of them told me I had a 160+ IQ.

    I suck at the tests that require computational speed, I maybe slow, but that doesn't make me stupid. Well, I score about 135 on the speed tests, so maybe there is something to them.

    It's reasonably straightforward once you know a little group theory. Getting fast at it, however, requires a lot of practice. Especially getting that last couple of cubes, which usually requires a lot of turns.

    EDIT: Oh. Wait this is an old thread. So much for IQ.

    Oh. I've recently done research on scientific output, and the determining factor is knowledge base, not IQ.

    Also, highly developed skills in memory, scrabble, chess, music, and almost anything is determined by hours of deliberate practice. The initial IQ advantage goes away pretty quickly. Of course, most people don't bother with deliberate practice, so you'll see IQ correlate well with success at the average levels. Top performers are a different breed.

    I.Q measures certain things in people but the person with highest I.Q isn't necessarily the smartest one in real life.

    I don't know (or necessarily even want to know) if I.Q and MBTI type correlate in any way even if I think most people reply to this thread saying NT... ?

    Does it matter anyway?

    Although if you build a machine to take IQ tests and it achieves the highest IQ, you are actually the dumbest person in real life.

    I honestly think that the smartest/most intelligent type is ENTP.

    If you mean combining intellectual and social skills you may be right.
    I am an ANFP and I am pretty good at everything asked in IQ tests except for pattern groups or however you may call it. That's the thing most people are best at, so I fall down.

    It's an interesting question: which type has (on average) the highest IQ.

    I have no idea what the answer is, but I'm certain there must be data for this. I would suppose that it would be one of the NT types, because we're the guys that write them.

    NB. the debate is not what does IQ measure, are you smart if you have a high IQ etc etc

    What is an ANFP?
