    Well, I don't think IQ has anything to do with ignorance or wisdom directly, at best only indirectly....

    What more sensor-friendly aspects of intelligence do you think the IQ test misses out on exactly?

    HAHAHAH! Ain't that the truth. Or the over-achievers. Or the work-a-holics.

    The worst thing is if you are all three.

    Or coddled because you're supposedly brilliant. And then after succeeding like mad in school you have no idea how to do anything in the 'real' world, like get a job. So you spend your days reading and researching, jobless, because that's what you know how to do, not to mention what you love.

    That's what I've heard, anyway.

    Can INFPs have high IQs?

    ---

    Well, it does matter only if their Fi judges that IQ tests are a relevant question.

    As a matter of fact, I'va always wondered why people find IQ tests to be so interesting, besides the fact they only exist to determine our ability to succeed in... IQ tests. It's a somewhat autotelic-redundant activity...

    Yeah, I took the test and was in the "gifted and talented" program in school also (GATE). They didn't tell us our scores either. The program was a joke though....we just got out of regular class half after lunch and goofed off on ridiculous projects mean to "challenge" us.

    My ESFP sister did well on an IQ Test (professionally administered...I think she was around 135 or so), but I agree that it's N biased. It tests only a certain kind of intelligence.

    Yeah, but I have a feeling it's the screwed up INFPs who make the cool art and music

    Well, in that gifted program I was put in, we did less work. We just goofed off. In high school I had a few advanced classes in which there were so few of us we basically had "independent study" and got to create our own assignments , which usually meant we just did stuff like break into the janitor's closet and hang out on the roof. Honestly, it teaches you to be LAZY. You don't have to try hard to achieve....

    No, they can't be. A 4 letter code definitely says how intelligent someone is.
