I'll settle for observing others indulging in life that way.

Sources lol?

You know, since the earliest IQ tests only date back to about 100 years ago.

Apparently, quantity and not quality is the one linked to IQ:

I was certainly focusing on people who remember what clothes they were wearing at a particular event a year ago and that didn't seem to be in a causal, nor correlational relationship with intelligence, in my view. Well, at least I've got it clear now! The "how would you define x?" part, where x is one of the key words used in a discussion, was waiting on the corner.

EDIT: @Fluffywolf There are estimates of the IQ of various famous people.

6. Actually one of the suggestions ive heard is that IQ tests favour intuitive pattern recognition skills.

Not saying I endorse the view, just saying ive heard it.

Hmm didn't see those. But of course as you can tell, I didnt read through the thread.

Also im talking intuition in general, he seems to be specifiying INTP. Although quite a few studies do claim that intuitives seem to be more prevelant amongst gifted people.

Which in a way im not surprised to hear.
