"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
Regardless past a certain point I don't think it really matters except for E-bragging rights. I think some posters generally had good intentions though in their posts and the thread shouldn't devolve into another IQ raising, S bashing NT bragging battle.
I merely posted what my I.Q. was, which was done by a physcologist and I believe it costed $100.oo. Other people seemed to respond exactly how they wanted to, instead of on topic, which would have regarded something to do with patience and IQ.
Also noted, they do seem to be extremely impatient
IQ and patience are not correlated. That's obvious in virtue of their respective definitions.
Moreover, intelligent people don't spend their time surfing online communities. If they did then they'd be less intelligent than they really are and, thus, not as intelligent as the people we're talking about (therefore not the people we're talking about).
The people we're talking about spend 1.5 hrs. per day exercising and the rest of the time either eating or exercising their mind (via intellectual problems). Their overall value is no higher than that of a person with enormous biceps. Really? It's true. No one body part is objectively more important than another. Body parts are only important if they do something (and their virtue would then lie in being able to do what they can do). Given that all body parts can do something, my ankle is just as important as my brain.
Personally I.Q. means almost nothing to me, there are just too many ways of testing it and no "official" way for it to hold much value to me. Ive personally never had mine tested and never intend to, I do feel I have a fairly high vocabulary and personally feel im quite intelligent compared to most of my peers. Concerning impatience, I have no patience in general so for me thats not a good way for me to personally determine if its associated with intelligence. Now ignorance is my biggest pet peeve though and can piss me off quite easily, but even genius' can be ignorant.
But your I.Q. does not impress me, and even if you are a genius I could care less. Actions speak louder than words.
IQ = 140 (averaged from many respectable interwebz such as yourfreebullshit.info and boostmyego.org)
and while we're at it, ill throw in my SAT:

740 some history shit
Oh shit!, I need to go dig up my standardized tests from 7th grade too, can you guys all wait for me to go tear through my parents attic?
oh and I got a smiley face + a "good job" on my 3rd grade spelling test for days of the week, months and seasons. (i remember it being on the fridge along with other cliche ego boosters that go on the avg-suburban-kitchen-fridge under a hello kitty magnet...
