    I have/had a high IQ- it's been a very long time but I definitely feel that my score as a child changed how I was treated. my parents just bragged about how smart and precocious I was a the time.

    however, I've been on a brain cell murder spree the past few years so who knows what it is now.

    I'm not even sure how this topic came about considering that stereotypically speaking INFPs (along with the INTPs of course) are like the ultimate brooding intellectual.

    I thought that was more like INTP or INFJ with INFP taking the title of "ultimate moody pseudo-intellectual" but I may be wrong.

    Brutal-style honesty, but this thread title shouldn't even be a question.

    I can't believe you're still asking this. It's been scientifically proven that INFPs CANNOT have high IQs. This is a fact, not an opinion.

    Typology and IQ spread

    Thinking, feeling, and brilliance (book chapter)

    Mental retardation and MBTI

    Predictors of intelligence (longitudinal study)

    Seriously guys. Fucking embarrassing that we're still asking these questions.

    One group of questions I've hit a wall with in IQ type of testing are the spatial ones. To be able to predict the shape of an object by only seeing it from one angle. I think if there's any accounting for INFPs having high IQs, it'd be here. I think both INTP and INFP have, for lack of a better way of putting it, "holographic" thinking, perceiving issues and objects from many sides. They strive to create a complete picture. Maybe strive is the wrong word. Maybe it comes natural to them. That's probably a strength and a weakness too. It bogs them down sometimes.

    That's my 2c though. It's just one of my weaknesses, and a strength I've somewhat observed from those two (I need to be more involved and hands on to see things the way they do).

    I do this horribly, it's why I think Ne's use like some kind of doublethink/ may have a lot of dualities. I used to think it was just a P thing and I think that SP's do this to an extent as well. Can sound like they are wishy washy with all these varying perceptions. I still have trouble with the spatial stuff though, it takes me longer than I think it should. Don't know why. However it is a very good analogy to perceptive thinking. "I know what it looks like if I tilt it any which way." Regarding holographic thinking, I think it helps in a lot of areas but makes me (and presumably others) really indecisive and rambley and slow to come to set answers on anything.

    Not sure why there'd be any connection whatsoever between Ne and spatial intelligence....... much more often it's someone who is xSTP who is noted for incredible spatial skills, but I'm dubious of even that connection.

    Yea, I was thinking that, but had really shady reasoning, and couldn't remember if that was an actual thing or if I just made it up in my head.

    (there should be a smiley representing "shady reasoning"- I would use that all the time)

    See this whole thing about "knowing" something first and then stating it with shady reasoning? Classic extraverted intuitiveness......... rotating a kinked block into a lock, eh, not so much. What's so intuitive about moving things in your mind?

    (there should be a smiley representing "shady reasoning"- I would use that all the time)
    I skip the smiley in lieu of a implied warning of such "shady reasoning" in every single post by having my type as ENZP....
