    Just don't make the mistake of assuming that IQ is representative of total overall intelligence.
    Funny. My IQ is "more higher" than average than my EQ, but I am a hardcore E and close on the N/S.

    I was trying to say that preferences follow abilities for the most part, even though on rare ocassions some S type personalities can rival and even surpass Ns in abstract reasoning.

    What is an EQ?
    If you could be anything you want, I bet you'd be disappointed--am I right?

    Yes...I understand the argument, but I was afraid there was a storm a-comin' a la "ESFP Stupid Myth" thread.

    Emotional Quotient. In crude terms, the IQ of interpersonal relationships.

    I have a good memory for trivial things, but no much for important stuff--and I have done a good bit of writing in my life.

    If any given types would indicate intelligence, I would say INxx would most likely have the highest potential. For one, Introversion is advantageous due to the nonsocial nature of study and the like. Secondarily, an N would most likely have an easier time due to the fact that the recall of any and all facts is essentially, abstract. T/F is counter-intuitively, not an issue here. Intelligence is a function of your ability to understand and retain information, regardless of what you base your decisions on. As for why P/J isn't an issue, it's because of the fact that depending on the type of information, you may or may not need to adhere to a rigid, systematic approach when learning about, and retaining something. While I understand that the topic is on IQ, I assume that it's being used in the vernacular to refer to intelligence.
    INTP,
    Neutral Good/Lawful Good even split. 5w4 sp/sx melancholic/supine, even split. Yes, I stole this method of placement from black cat.
