    Of course it could be sooner if we could sell high intelligence with short sightedness and a velvet coat of fur.

I find this kind of strange because I would imagine that Sensing and Thinking would make one smarter rather than going by one's emotions. Strange...
    it depends on what u view IQ to be (success in academia?)

    If you are talking about academia than INTJ has hte highest IQ, with INFJ being 2nd place....

    but in reality IQ is a flawed way of interpreting. A person can suck at math and science but find his niche in music and be amazing. His IQ is then based on how well he performs his craft.

    So to be honest IQ has nothing to do with MBTI.

    It is really about which type is more likely to find the career that fits their personality.

    IQ can't really be interpreted. It's a way of indicating one's general intelligence by combining visual, logical and linguistic skills. But I agree on the above, since IQ excludes practical intelligence and doesn't tell you in which areas you're good and in which not.
    However, IQ has something to do with MBTI since studies have shown that INTJ, INTP, INFJ, ENTP are the types who have the highest average IQ.

    I have never had my IQ tested professionally. In online tests I've done I can score anywhere from around 100 to 145, so I don't think they are very reliable.

    Or that high IQ people type as N types. That's the problem with correlations, you can often agree that there is one, but it's completely different to agreeing what the correlation actually is and why.

    We are the smartest. But the disturbed few and savants drop out and become intps.

    i think most people inflate their iqs. I read something recently that said iq score average has gone up since the tests first came out. I don't think we're smarter though.

    Yeah, if everyone is above 100, then 100 has to be moved, since that's, by definition, the average result. We all can't be smarter than average. Self-reported IQ reminds me of that statistic that 2 out of 3 people think that they're above-average drivers.
