-what is your IQ and your confidence with it?
I took the WISC-III test once when i was 11 and then again when i was 17. I scored 158 when i was 11 and 154 when i was 17.
Usually when i take online IQ tests i score in the 140s or if i'm really distracted i score in the 130s. I'm not really confident about my IQ because i often feel like a lot of people around me are a lot smarter, so just putting a number to my intelligence doesn't seem to prove anything..
-how much does your view of "intelligence" align with contemporary IQ views on general intelligence factor?
I think there are far too many different forms of intelligence for IQ to matter that much.
-are multiple intelligences a better representation of people's traits, or a hoax to cater to feelings of the dumb, or something in between?
Multiple intelligence tests are okay i guess, but i still don't think they are really proving anything.
-have you wished to be of different IQ?
Honestly i don't really sit around thinking about my IQ, so no.
-have you noticed a drop in IQ? If so, have you done a conscious effort to negate the effect? If not, what abilities or perceptions have helped to turn the situation around?
Well it dropped a few points from the time i was 11 to 17, i'm 21 now, so it could have possibly gone down even more if the trend was the same.
-has type awareness brought different view on IQ? how so?
nope. i see that some types might score higher than others, but i don't know how accurate that is.
-have you aimed for the best job available to your intelligence?
Probably not. I'm a stay at home pregnant woman. Cooking and cleaning doesn't really take a whole lot of brain power to be perfectly honest. I hate working, and i find that any job i work i'm under appreciated for hard work, so i don't even bother anymore. I'd like a job working as some sort of anti drug counselor or something, i don't know if that would be the best job for my intelligence or not, but i think you should do what you love and love what you do and not worry about being intelligent or not being intelligent enough for something.
