    What kind of questions would you have to ask? Would it be math based, diagrams, you get the idea.

    Details please.

    It can't be done, can it.
    There wouldn't be any questions or math.

    It would actually be more like the show Ninja Warrior.

    Me and the kids watch it in the morning before we leave the house.

    I would seriously love to go and try that out.

    Then finally i would be a genius as i would be relentless until i completed it all and was crowned 'Champion female ninja warrior'.

    EDIT - But i enjoy Math, can i maybe just have one or two math questions.

    Here's a link about the topic. Probably been mentioned before, but oh well.
    Liberty Corner: IQ and Personality

    I think NTs have a nasty advantage. They are lovers of disembodied information, analytical discussions, and are inherently rational. NFs are often close behind.

    Then again, the guy who wrote that blog seems like a dumb close minded self righteous prick to me. So statistics are still just that.
    Also, I think intjs are the only ones believing they're actually so smart as a mb type.

    Very interesting. Thanks for sharing. Quick question: What is the definition of 'gifted' in this sample?

    My instincts tell me that NT would do well on IQ tests, if only because they were the type of person would invent IQ tests, then tailor them to suit their own branch of smart! I've yet to find an IQ question that reads "You need to buy some supplies, but the shop is about to close and the staff would rather just throw you out and go home. What do you say to persuade them to serve you?"

    Actually, I think most NTs are more than willing to believe that they're the smartest people on the planet. I am very skeptical about these sources.

    Eck....

    ROFLMAO = sample size of 16 - is this serious?

    I love it when people do up wonderful tables full of stattistical data and then in small print at the bottom has something along the lines of sample size per group = 16.... skip the % and write some narrative around the subjective.... the data is qual only...

    Eck no slam at you - you are just posting someone else blunder

    Intellegence doesn't = sucesses, there was a thead on the low sucess rate of mensa people earlier in the summer

    Also does career sucesses really = sucesses.... surely contentment = happier adults = sucessful life... what that looks like for individuals is very different.

    LOL = are you saying they are not? And I am just taking the piss, NT may or may not be the brightest in proportion, but they certainly are the most intellectually arrogant.... LOL
