    No. That's a death sentence. An idiot is bound to have things crumble to bits around him, and the longer this continues, the sooner it is until he finally realizes he's the common element and his illusion shatters one way or the other. The longer you wandered in bliss, the less prepared you'll be for the inevitable truth. The earlier you know, the more time you have to learn what simple tricks you can to compensate and the better a chance you have.

    I would think the oriention of a person's IQ may correlate to the persons function orientation.

    IQ is a broadly applied term.

    Im afraid of taking an IQ test, because I'm afraid to find out that I'm actually smarter the what I believe to be, and I have been cheating on myself by "dumbing down" and subconsciously looking back on all the missed opportunities.

    I really don't think that IQ tests measure anything than how good that you are at taking that IQ test

    and don't get me started on self reporting tests and how inherently inaccurate they are


    for instance, I'm fucking brilliant (and have IQ scores to back that up... but then again, I LIKE tests because my brain associates them with food)... I'm also a total disappointment to anyone who thinks that should translate to me doing anything productive with my life. I have 3 degrees and don't use any of them and quite a few nice certifications that I haven't gotten around to using yet... I work a manual labor type job because it'll pay for more school and I kind of enjoy it as long as the work place politics stays far away. I don't really want that much out of life and am mostly amused by doing what amuses me at the time...

    compare that to someone who has an average IQ score, but some aim and drive in life and who actually does something instead...

    I'm straight up in an ENFP ADHD mode right now so I'll answer this thread with a big fat No, and let's call him Frank. I do not think there is any correlation between type and IQ, and I think it is absurd. I think in many ways, a person's total level of intelligence and growth potential for that matter is an amalgamation of natural ability, experience, a propensity to question, and a hunger for more.

    Looking at my functions alone, I can say that ENTP and ENFP types must be profoundly intelligent since they are able to pick apart things, make connections, and come to new conclusions using their Ne. To me, being able to spit answers out in a short time frame is not an indicator of intelligence, but just some lame humanoid computer. I am aware of my bias, but I would say being able to think creatively (not just in its typical application in art) is of one of the highest indicators of intelligence in my mind.

    However, I wouldn't say any function alone or personality type means you're instantly up couple IQ points. Think about Ne for example, what good is it for me, if I don't regularly push myself to seek out adventures, to meet new people, to think in new ways, and to be curious about the world around me?? Ne comes into full strength when you have a diverse and ever-expanding library of knowledge to pull from.

    Couldn't agree more. I think focusing on IQ scores alone is sorely missing the point entirely. Just as you bring up, what good is a high IQ if you have nothing to show for it, or don't put it to use. My IQ isn't anything to write home about, but I know without doubt, my IQ will be the last thing holding me back in life

    Lol got 155 from a free IQ test. I guess I r smart.

    But seriously, theory of multiple intelligences is where it's at, just because someone doesn't have high IQ, they could have high EQ, MQ, blahQ, etc. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses.

    @Forever could you tell me more about blahQ I think I might score well in that.

    blahQ is knowing when to block others. When the going gets tough having the exact precision of carefully blocking that person to seem like you disappeared rather than outright blocking takes high blahQ.

    It might've been different from what you're expecting, I think you might've wanted anyQ or QQ.

    Which is yet to be explored...

    QQ is quite controversial in the realm of definable Q's. Although it doesn't possess the same omnipotence as more well known Q's it's ability to measure production of salt is unparalleled.
