    Default Can INFPs have high IQs?

    Thanks for clearing that up, everything you said applies.

    From memory INFPs are one of the more common high IQ types. They are quite good in science and in language, and have a lot higher concentration level than us ENFPs (though I'm yet to meet an ENFP who I'd call stupid).

    You may also find the last point on personalitypage about INFP strengths in personal growth useful.

    Usually deep and intelligent, they're able to grasp difficult concepts with relative ease. They usually do quite well academically, and will find that educating their minds nourishes their need to think deeply.
    Intelligent and cynical humour is common for INFP. Feel gifted enough to be one of those who doesn't miss the joke .

    I'll note it is normally far less on display than NTs though. An INFP who I knew really well was in the top few at school, and he hardly mentioned school work or looked academic. Didn't turn up for his award at the end of final year either, because he thought it was all a big wank.

    Ne can make people very very clever. And being sensitive doesn't make someone incapable of thought.

    As can Fi. In many cases (including some in science) a holistic approach and awareness of cause and effect in the wider system is actually superior to the linear logical approach. Don't tell anyone though .

    Any type "can" have a high IQ (though some types have higher proportions of gifted people; as noigman mentioned INFPs are actually one of these). There are gifted people of all types. If you stick around here for a while you'll see there are plenty of intelligent INFPs around (as well as other bright Fs).

    From the IQ thread, this might be useful.

    Predicted likelihood of being "gifted" among senior secondary students, given you know what type they are.
    P(Gifted | INTP) = 16.99%
    P(Gifted | INTJ) = 14.37%
    P(Gifted | INFP) = 13.38%
    P(Gifted | INFJ) = 13.35%
    P(Gifted | ENTP) = 11.61%
    P(Gifted | ENFP) = 10.16%
    P(Gifted | ENTJ) = 7.43%
    P(Gifted | ENFJ) = 6.3%
    P(Gifted | ISTJ) = 4.93%
    P(Gifted | ISTP) = 3.88%
    P(Gifted | ESTP) = 2.46%
    P(Gifted | ISFJ) = 2%
    P(Gifted | ISFP) = 1.99%
    P(Gifted | ESFP) = 1.4%
    P(Gifted | ESTJ) = 1.3%
    P(Gifted | ESFJ) = 1.18%

    Percentage of each type among gifted and normal groups in a sample of senior secondary students

    Yes, I agree with this. You so often see otherwise intelligent NT's in particular espousing a tedious form of logical positivism that is quite dumb even on its own rationalistic grounds.

    Hope you guys no, giftness is what you make out of it.

    And if anyone should disagree with that tell me. I am not gifted but I can fight
