    IQ is 1-150. People that have been attempted to test above 150 are all numbers that are based on assumptions.

    Quite frankly, the world record of 230 is a load of crap. Up to 150 IQ can be tested in relation to the masses pretty well. But if you have 150 or 230, I wouldn't say there's that big a difference.

    That said, one can practice IQ tests as well. For example the world record in IQ test person has scored many IQ's varying from 150's up to 230. Tbh, I'd go for the 150+ as her IQ.

    I did an IQ test once when I was twelve and scored 116 and once when I was 18 and scored 136. But I've no idea what my exact IQ is. I don't think anyone has an exact IQ.

    40 points from a score on which test? The Stanford-Binet? The Cattell?? A Wechsler Scale!?

    WHICH ONE!?!?!?

    edit: The answer is 'No' regardless of which test

    Easy decision.

    This is a question of greed vs intelligence.
    What if you never become rich? that 10 million is already a security.
    Alot of the extra IQ is unproductive, meaning it does not necessary make you better than anyone else other than to overthink things.

    How bout a raise the price to 50 million for 30 points of IQ?
    Or a lifetime of food supply so you won't starve to death?

    I'd rather be poor and smart than rich and stupid any day. As my Mom once said of me, "he can't be bought." I agree.

    Fuck, yes!

    I'd probably consider trading it for 500 dollars.

    I'd rather be of average intelligence, but wealthy and free. You can be smart but still have to work 9-5 and be miserable.

    Despite Falcarius agreeing with Hanlon's Razor, he would not trade since he would most positively be a cretin once destitute of 40 IQ points. So obtuse in fact he would not know what a cretinoid is let alone Endemic Cretinism.

    it's not a matter of iq. It's a matter of the 'I' who wants.
    If the "I" who recieves is just too structurally different from the "I" who wishes/act. Then there's a breaking in the continuity of the process of the living system that is I.

    Change is life, life is change; just as our time is causal.
    But we communicate with the "exterior" via narrow exchange ratios based in the principle of entropy in its wide interpretation. Differencials at work, the universe evening out if you will. That's why we have to eat, or exist at all, you know.

    But our conception of the "I" rarely encompasses the whole universe. As far as we limit the "I" to our body and direct environnement to an extent, we have to consider that the "I" is a changing process, made of gradualy changing parts, yet this change is limited by living systems' ability for homostasis, giving us shape and specific abilities, making us human by more or less maintaining our structure within given parameters..

    But if I get my mind heavily modified and get paid for it, the huge differential between the normal data/work exchanges within the limited construct I call "I" and the absolute norm that is the universe will drastically modify my decision making center relatively speaking -since all humans are pretty similar-.

    This breaking of the normal rules of homostasis within my brain would be, to me, equivalent to a suicide.

    no can do.
    I could say a lot more things about this but well, space time, defining time, continuity, difference between limbs and brain in defining the 'i', tool use, social convention.
    and so on.
    'm not willing to go through it all.

    ps: without even looking at this thread -i never read what other people post, that would be gross- I can guess that at least half of the posters are intx, and that pretty much everybody got into an undercover 'who has the biggest iq' war, totally missing the actual obvious point the question rise, yet thinking they're all so smart.
    If it didn't happen, it will, or it did before, so it's all the same to me.

    there's no yawning wide enough to express my boredom right now.
