    Are you entirely sure about that?

    IQ tests measure the ability for the brain to recognize patterns, which is primarily a left-brained activity. Ergo, I would assume they're biased to logical sorts of people, not the artistic right-brainers.

    It's more of an outlook of how one approaches life rather than anything intrinsic. Have you ever read Outliers? Malcolm Gladwell brought up this neat little anecdote where in a test that was designed to test lateral thinking and creativity the most intelligent students didn't always score as well as the more lay ones in the 120-130 range.

    Actually, damn, I just realized I agreed with you

    High intelligence with low creativity sounds very boring. Right I'm average intelligence with low creativity. Let's have some creativity for a change.

    I chose what I already have: high intelligence, low creativity.

    Definitely more useful in the world, thankfully.
