    Been reading through this thread over the past few days, and decided I needed to register and contribute a bit. (BTW, hi, all!)

I decided to take it a bit further and threw together a spreadsheet and fleshed out the data for the norm group then added the gifted and norm group together for a total. This also allowed the inclusion of a column for the ratio between gifted/norm, and another column for the percentage of gifted per type. This makes the pattern a little easier to perceive.

    Enjoy.

    ^^LOL, if you are gifted and INTP, you are not very special at all.

    Oh, and surprise surprise. The ESFJ is on the bottom. The INTPs shadow. They always said that retard and genius is two sides off the same coin. This explains a lot actually.

    Thanks

    what exactly is gifted? I was placed in a gifted program when I was in grade school but begged my mom to take me out because I found out it was just more work!

    This explains a lot less than you would think, actually.

    As in, the more you understand, the more you understand that what you really understand is that you dont understand at all?

    As in, these figures are practically useless to begin with. You can't measure the individual by sizing up the group.

    My experience shows that I score lower on tests that are based on the visual logic, than mathematical (number lists and stuff like that) and verbal logic and some visual. Fx on the Danish website's IQ test which is fully based on pictures I score like around 110, but in Free IQ Test - Fast, Free and Accurate Online IQ Test which is based on all kinds of questions involving verbal, mathematical and visual I scored 151. That's a big difference! So I believe that it's hard to measure actual IQ, it would be smarter to distinguish verbal, mathematical and visual IQ.
    Oh yeah?

    Agreed, and that was more clear then my vapid joke. I tend to just laugh of these things, fail to be able to take it seriously.

    what the chart doesn't tell you: All of the sensors at the bottom are gifted, just gifted at useful things.
