For example, I took one IQ test (official from school) and got a 141, then my mom sent me to Sylvan because she thought I was stupid or something (I just didn't care about middle school lol) and I tested 129, both numbers significantly different form another.

    Tis flawed. :rolleyes2:

    yeah, pretty sure that the type with the highest IQ is the type who most closely achieves the criteria the makers of the IQ test were after at the time they were producing the version they did.

    i think it can be useful as a tool to check for learning disability and shouldn't be used for much else than that -- too many people basing self-worth or others' worth off a situation that allows very few people perform to the best of their ability.

    (i think the same of the SAT, ACT, GRE, etc...)

    My scores on online tests vary from as low to 110 to as high as 160. I think some of the online tests though are quite inaccurate and some probably inflate your score to a great degree. There's no way I have a 160 IQ.

    I got 125 (95th percentile) and that sounds about right. Well above average but no genius.

    So do colleges with a potential student's worth, if you're thinking SAT, ACT etc.

    As far as i can tell, in general the smartest type is consistently INTP's.

    I generally dont think of S's as being very intelligent but thats probably because i dont respect S intelligence enough, (its simply different than n thinking but completely equal in its own way).

    In the end though i think that putting IQ and type together is a bad idea because it leads to misunderstanding and ignorance.

    Some of the smartest people i know are in the types that might be stereotypically considered ditzy and some of the least intelligent people i know are types that might stereotypically be considered smart. So, all in all, i'd say its unrelated.

    Taking a general comment as personally directed - F
    Reading between the lines and making leaps of logic - N

    C'mon whatevs, you know you're an NF really! You can't go on hiding it when you display all these NF characteristics!


    Anyway, to be fair, all bases ended up being covered with that last comment. This is what's known as giving oneself a getout clause. Even if this did mean that one half of the post completely contradicted the other half. I can't be bothered to analyse the whole thing, let's just sum it up by looking at the first and last statements (which appear to serve as premise and conclusion):

    we ALL have all of the damned function thingies ragashree

    and the getout clause is probably just a sad little plea of "please don't beat me up big scary S people"

    I'm not feeling merciful this morning... ... if I had some more time I'd talk about the flaws in test design, the problems with self reporting bias and a failure at posessing adequate information to draw such conclusions, but I don't

    Noo! I swear I don't! For instance, I don't have any Se at all. Function tests prove it and everything! This means that I am not reading your post. But I AM making assumptions based on what I'm not reading. This is why the N function comes across as psychic sometimes. It needs to be to make sense of anything, what with all that it doesn't attend to. And also why it occasionally needs the letters "ot" inserted...
