    It never is. Even if our posts may seem redundant somehow, the main idea here is to share as much opinions as possible, so we can see if there's a pattern (or not, or something else, who knows?).

    So you're welcome, and I thank you.

    I don't think type has anything to do with how people view IQ tests. However, type does have a strong influence over shoe preference.

    You too!

    So, you may have a consensus among ENTPs, but what about SJs? Where my peeps at???? What do you guys think? (I'm thinking that our Ne sarcasm that Blackmail was talking about will have something to do with our opinion on the subject.)

    From my SJ's dudes I know, they dont care about IQ tests. But if they could score in a particular moment with them, they would. But who wouldnt ? xD

    I don't see much use for them, personally. But if you do, more power to ya.

    That's the same attitude I have about a lot of things, though.

    Well, I've got some mix of ideas. In a summary, IQ and the so-called "mathematical" intelligence or whatnot actually means hell of a lot, and so-called "body-kinestetic-IQ" and other similar are completely bogus, along with "dancing techno in moonlight with candle wax in your ears-IQ".

    Those alternate IQ ideas spawn up for some reason, god knows why.

    Then again, IQ is about adaptive leverage, having some capability that would enhance your survival, well-being and propagation of genes. So it's about success? We can measure whatever is valued at some place at any one moment, and say that the successful ones have high IQ? I think not.

    The classic IQ is the most worthy "IQ" to be thought of, tho other issues matter a great deal. Things like skills, knowledge, etc. Many things that are trainable for the most part, like sociability and such.

    I think I have an amalgam of values, where success alone, and not theoretical test-performance alone can measure an individual's capability. Measures that include anything from 20% to 80% of each variable are acceptable to me.

    i used to be obsessed with IQ tests. i would score above the average (120-130. nothing too crazy) and i kinda liked it. anything for me to get to know myself is a good thing. however, when i took a psychology class ad they told me that IQ tests were made to test how well kids will do in school, i was highly unimpressed. it doesn't really test intelligence at all, but how much of the stuff you've learned and retained. it only calculates the results and not the process itself. furthermore, as CC stated, creativity etc. is simply unmentioned. that's just shit.

    i can see why IQ tests have their place in the world but i'm always gonna take that information with a grain of salt.

    Meaningless drivel.



    Actually, correlation with abstract-logical and/or pattern matching activities makes sense. But there is a lot more to intelligence. I thikn the multiple-intelligence model is more accurate. IQ, I thought, had been debated to death on this forum.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    But I would be curious to listen what the other side has to say. And, if possible, which functions are involved. There are people who enjoy IQ tests; let's see why...
    The object of this thread is not to criticize their preference, but to understand it, how it is so.
    Well I personally "enjoy" them because I am good at the tasks contained in IQ tests and I find them to be "fun". But that's all...
