We can't leave out, "Hey look at how morally superior I am by frowning down on those who engage in the above "
Oh no! Not my favourite vice!

Being sucked into a periscope
Still the mind is dull
Like you need another excuse"
… a theory is primarily a form of insight, i.e. a way of looking
at the world, and not a form of knowledge of how the world is….
.. all our different ways of thinking are to be considered as
different ways of looking at the one reality, each with some
domain in which it is clear and adequate…. - David Bohm
"Oh check out my huge penis which is X long!" "Or hey look at all my toys!" Of course the ever popular, "hey look at my bank account!" "Look at me I'm so creative!" We can't leave out, "Hey look at how morally superior I am by frowning down on those who engage in the above "
I think my signature pretty much captures all of those.
An argument is two people sharing their ignorance.
A discussion is two people sharing their understanding, even when they disagree.
This has the most self loathing I have ever read in a single post.
Well, most self-love is delusion, so it's probably the lesser evil. And it's not like what is wrote is wrong. Pretty much all of history's geniuses have been iNtuitives, and most regular gifted people are too.
It's ok Cell. I do it too, it seems to be particularly common amongst feeler types. It's not bad nor good though, it just is.
"The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents... Some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new Dark Age. " - H.P. Lovecraft
Are we allowed to post links from other personality sites? Because if I could do that it would be much easier. However, rather than risk it, I'll just post this.
This graph shows the MBTI types ranked more or less by IQ. Specifically, by likelihood to be gifted:
The thing I find really dumb about graphs like these, or any stats, is that we don't even know where the data came from, if it was self reported typing (which we all know leaves something to be desired - and, most high IQ or gifted sensors can easily mistype as N due to how N/S can be presented in tests), if it was typing done by 'professionals' (which also leaves something to be desired, since typing methodology varies from one professional to the next), if it was the 'official' mbti test, if it was a sample size of like 60 people (which is often the case for a lot of mbti studies out there, because there haven't been many studies in the first place...)
So I find stats extremely unconvincing when it comes to anything tied to mbti.
I'm also pretty sure I've seen a different IQ/mbti graph, which shows some of the sensing types trending in the top 8.
But the general PSA I always feel compelled to remind people of in any threads like this is that trends are one thing, individuals are quite another. So to use something like IQ to determine or predict type is not the way you go about it.

I read it as there must be some underlying personal meaning other then it relates to the topic. As if just because i dont do it for a personal reason, must mean i do it for a personal reason.
I know personally off this website a small handful know my IQ and its people close that the topic came up with. No one else really knows my IQ.
Yah, this is how I read the question as well.. I know there are many questions we encounter here and in our daily lives that have been constructed with built-in moral pitfalls but I took the question straightforwardly as stated...disclaimers and all. A willingness to reserve judgment.
As for me...I see no moral dilemma here necessarily. Just a real "if a tree falls in the forest..." feel. If my IQ was the same as Steven Hawking's but I sit around on my ass all day smoking cigarettes do I still deserve entry into the same clubs? Merit is a word I've seen tossed around quite a bit lately. Likewise a rejection of "quantity" over "quality"...but perhaps not here.
It's absurd to me is all (Poki my morning latte cost more than yours)
Through every forest, above the trees
Within my stomach, scraped off my knees
I drink the honey inside your hive
You are the reason I stay alive
