    Sigh. I've already said that I'm not trying to solve a problem.

    And that was the underlining purpose of the thread.

    Join the club, toots.

    I don't have that ability to predict what people are going to do 5 steps from now, nor would I even want to. Too much thinking going on. I don't even CARE what people are going to do. What does it matter?

    I experience a similar frustration but in a different vein. I can almost never find someone who is willing to communicate to the depth of soul that I would like to. Not only that, but my own children and husband roll their eyes at me, or yell at me and tell me to stop when I start getting frustrated about how nobody cares about things I think are important, so I have to endure the rejection in my own home!

    btw: I'm not sure what my IQ is but I thought it was around 125-130.

    Does IQ connect with speed in solving problems? If so, it might have a correlation with impatience. But IQ => Intelligence is incorrect in my opinion. Some really intelligent processes are very slow. I personally like everything NOW, lol. But I don't know my IQ.

    *Scroll down for short answer to post*

    IQ: Of course I wonder about the validity of most of these tests found online (and at your local psychologist), but could it be that, in general, the type of people on the internet are more likely to score higher than average?
    Again, not saying that these tests should be considered valid or even reasonably accurate (even with professional IQ tests, can they be?), but for example, I know of people who have had lower scores on online tests than the ones they received on the professional ones they had done.


    *Short Answer*

    That said, my scores are in the 130-145 range. I am usually not impatient.


    Additional Comments:

    Lack of impatience is probably because I have a hard time expressing myself with my anxiety (going blank when trying to answer a simple question is a crushing experience for me). Because of that, "smart" people can easily dismiss me as an idiot, or "dumb down" to me with a sort of condescending pseudo-compassion. Dealing with situations like this has made me so much more aware of other people's individuality.

    I really think there is so much more to a person than what you immediately perceive them to be (whether they are smart or not). The real challenge is looking past your own assumptions and impressions.

    The average intelligence quotient is 100. This means that half of all people are above 100 and half below.

    Also the intelligence quotient is distributed along a bell curve which means almost everybody is in the middle and almost no one is at either end.

    This means that virtually everyone here is between 90 and 110.

    Not necessarily. People of the same disposition tend to concentrate in one area. People like to congregate with their own kind, capiche?

    Sure, MBTIc is self selecting. And pehaps it selects for IQ.

    However MBTI is a world wide cult so it is more likely to select for gullibility.

    But, I can hear you saying that gullibility does not preclude a high IQ.

    And this is true - as the best and brightest are often attracted to cults.

    So perhaps you are right. Maybe MBTIc does select for gullibility and intelligence.

    But I think it is more likely that we have a normal intelligence profile on MBTIc, that is, 90 to 110.

    But who knows?

    It has been said somewhere (can't remember source) that most mensans are NTs, so it could very well be...at least partially.

    I don't think so.
    Most of the people here are abnormal, in my opinion.
