    Mine is infinity plus mulitplied by infinity. I am a smartee...so smart that MENSA wouldn't accept my application. They said you are just so clever you will make us all look like slumberjacks.

    I calculated how many zeros I could get and still maintain a C average.

    IQ and high grades don't directly correspond. I know any number of really incredibly bright people who were B students at best because school bored them to tears, and they couldn't summon the motivation to do the paperwork.

    EDIT: I've heard it said that in industry, you often find that the A students are hired by the C students.

    There's the "high IQ" achiever and underachiever.

    142. We had them done in high school as a part of a psychology class (I hated that damn class).

    I wish it would translate over into real life.

    IQ and "brightness" don't correspond either. When dealing with disabled children, IQ is a fairly good way to identify problems that couldn't have been identified from simple observation, but thinking that it has a hard link to actual intelligence is ridiculous.

    I think a better way to gauge intelligence is to see whether or not someone believes IQ tests are a good indicator of intelligence.

    Not that I disagree with you but do you have an explanation as to why it would work one way and not the other?
