    Whatever, I'm pretty sure it must be fun nevertheless
    Intelligence is mostly genetically coded. It still indicates that there is a part of intelligence that isn't genetically coded. I will improve it.

    okay, seriously, my IQ is 167 which is about half of what I got on my SATs. So.....does IQ really matter?


    I think I satisfied all of the rules for posting in this thread, since A) I mentioned that my IQ was higher than average, B) Stated that I have no faith in Intelligence Quotient and even offering a bit of anecdotal evidence suggesting its insignificance.

    Furthermore, I hate cats.

    Agreed. Intelligence is nothing if you don't use it.

    I'd like a reason why not. You are saying that one who is 40 years old would have the same intelligence since he was 18. I believe one can continue to increase his intelligence.

    Ask a psychologist. Any psychologist, actually. The one at our national Mensa could give you some hints, but I'm afraid a meeting with him is hardly possible.

    Intelligence increases for some time, then decreases after some time. With hard practice, you can slow down the setback, but that's pretty much everything you can do.

    Age is incorporated in IQ tests (they are standardized considering the test takers age), and for them to be accurate, they are balanced according to age. For example if you reach a 75/100 score on a test and you're 18, your IQ might be around 125. If you score 75/100 with the age of 40, your IQ is around 140.

    ETA: Last phrase rewritten.

    I believe knowledge breeds intelligence. The more knowledge you have of things the more logical one can make his decisions. Or am I wrong?

    I know how IQ tests work. But if that were the case then at 40 you are more intelligent than when you are 18 if you get a higher score yet get the same IQ. You are on the IQ of the age. So what I want is to speed up that process instead of waiting all those years. To put it in simpler terms:

    Age 18 = IQ 125 = 75/100
    Age 40 = IQ 125 = 85/100

    You got higher results. This would mean that you are still more intelligent at 40 than at 18. So there is progress. Then wouldn't it be possible to speed up that progress?
