    Agreed... I always find it curious how attached some people can be to their IQ score. Validation can be a powerful tool for manipulating those who require it. It's really quite fascinating.

    I only know one person at my school who's taken an IQ test.

    I have a friend who took the ASVAB. He got 92 and thought the score was wrong since he views himself as significantly below average for our school.

    How much more common was IQ testing in the past? Both my parents were tested but the only case among my grade was just to get into mensa.

    Goddamn, seems like the 2% of the population with an IQ of >130 can be found right here at typologycentral.

    ^ LOL, yes.

    It seems that an interest in typology and an internet connection is automatic for people who test above the 98th percentile.

    I didn't take the ASVAB, and my IQ subtest scores ranged from 91(processing speed) to 134(verbal), with a lot of the scores around 110.

    But what is also strange is how many people were actually subject to such tests. Not that many people I knew took the ASVAB because it was an optional test among 847594875 not-optional tests in school and was only really necessary if you were planning for military service. For IQ tests, those are usually only given if one is likely to need either gifted education or standard special education. I suppose a lot of the people here were in the gifted programs at school, since non-gifted special education recipients seem to be mostly absent from the forum....

    Meh, getting tired of saying mostly the same things over and over again. Will take apart the thread for something new when I have enough time to process it, lol.

    I took the ASVAB two weeks ago.
    AFQT= 99
    GT= 148

    My IQ= 75. Just kidding-- I just hate the dogmas of the brights, and don't like to be associated with them.

    IQ 143 last time I got tested (years ago, figure my brain's been fried by TV since then ). No idea what ASVAB is.

    There's nothing weird about a highly intellectual subject attracting only highly intelligent people.

    IQs claimed on the internet. Thought it might have some relevance.
