    I don't like this. Most of the IQ tests I've seen measure only a couple types of skills, like mathematics or predicting patterns (which uses N). I always felt that is why the sensors get boned out of having high IQs sometimes. And if that is the case, IQ isn't valid to indicate general intelligence or even worth a sidewards glance because it's missing a lot of skill testing and only applies to a few things we deem as important enough to test and measure intelligence for.

    Ah, so you were the INFP, not "a friend" of yours. . I had a feeling. You aren't the first male to be a bit troubled by that result.

    Really, well-adjusted INFPs can be amazing people. I used to have some contact with a male INFP, who coincidentally was named Tom. Wonderful guy. (I know you aren't him though, since he wouldn't have asked such a question. )

    Yeah, it can be stupid. But I think they are working on that, aren't they? I know I took one recently that had a lot more visual-spatial memorization stuff that I'd never seen before and I suu-uuucked at it.

    But then again, I'm an INFP so I'm really fucking stupid.

    Tom, I hope you know I'm kidding. If you want the truth, I was an Honors student, got academic scholarships, etc. So yes, you could be an INFP, even if you are a nerdy brainiac. Actually, I would say especially if you are a nerdy brainiac.

    Well, damn, any type can have a high IQ...

    If you're asking the frequency of types with regard to IQ...well, I think other people have provided ample data.
    If you are interested in language, words, linguistics, or foreign languages, check out my blog and read, post, and/or share.

    Truf.


    In confronting the fact that we don't know everything, we are forced to face our own weaknesses.

    It's only by knowing how weak we are that we can truly be strong.
