    Intelligence doesn't mean jack shit if you don't do anything with it. IQ is unimportant.

    Type has nothing to do with it.

    You can be an S with average intelligence, make more money, feel better about yourself, and change more lives for the better, if you have a good idea and make it work.

    I would much rather be the S, than a T with a 300 IQ who never leaves his basement, and only discusses ideas with the four people on the internet he deems intelligent enough to be peers.

    Implementing what you've learned is better than having a high IQ, and keeping everything to yourself.

    I can think intuitively and enjoy the company of INPs, for example, but I don't call myself an N precisely because of IQ. If that's what statistics show, so be it. I'm not an N then. I'm not abysmal, but I'm hardly Mensa level either. And I'm cool with that. It's seems to be one of these areas where I don't care to compete.

    I KNOW I'm smart... I went to college on a full scholarship and have always scored more than adequatly on IQ tests (and not the silly online ones!). I just happen to enjoy channeling my intelligence into the presence and into practical applications most of the time instead of dreaming of things that AREN'T particularly useful or beneficial to me. The weird idea that people have that smart= interested in philosophical bullshit is just plain prejudiced and I've been annoyed by it here for the past 3 years

    Are you referring to the 'talented' N's who lose their keys, or the N's who can't tie their own shoes?

    That certainly depends on your goals in life.

    Hee hee. We can sell them maps to their own houses, complete with a "you are here" arrow. For an extra fee, we could offer them a guided tour of their houses or their living rooms, depending on their need for remedial assistance.
    Our assistance could save a life. The Ns will find their way out of their living rooms before turning into skeletons!!!

    Any type can be intelligent in it's own way, as there are a lot of types of intelligence. One can do what the other one isn't good at, and the other way around.

    I recently read a story about a guy who was extremely intelligent (more like a mathematical intelligence), when he god a B+ (he only got As), he went rampage and killed his teacher.

    Now the obvious questions was, if he was so fucking smart, why did he kill the teacher, ending up in prison?

    Even though he was extremely smart, he was good only at ONE specific thing: math and physics.

    Kind of like a savant syndrome
