    That does seem weird that the neuropsych gave you the WAIS to try and rule in/out Asperger's. It's purely a cognitive test and wouldn't be used to determine Autism, although those with Autism may perform lower in certain areas. Was that the only test that was given to you? Did the neuropsyc specify what that "something else" was? An IQ of 150 means you scored better than 99% of the people that took the test, meaning you have very superior cognitive abilities!

    IQ measures a form of intelligence. It doesn't capture the whole picture. I've read that INTPs and INTJs tend to score highest on it. It could be that those personalities trend towards those forms. And other personality types will trend to other forms. For example, ESFJs and ENFJs tend to be people with a high level of social intelligence due to dominant Fe.

    There isn't really a way to truly capture intelligence because there are so many forms. IQ is an attempt at it, but not the end all be all.

    I'm an ENFP and I was tested to have an IQ of about 123 in my early teens. I was told that it would increase a few points once I reached adulthood. That puts me pretty firmly in above average. However, my spatial component of the testing was extremely low, which lowered the score.

    Well an IQ of 140 and above is what is qualified as a MENSA certified genius, if my memory serves me correctly. That's an extremely good score, and it is definitely positive. Not sure what you can really do with it, but let it be a self-confidence booster when you need it. It's apwats good to have those to remind yourself of.

    And people on the autistic spectrum can be extroverts as well. It's not typical, but I've seen it. Some are also introverted, but more social introverts in the right setting. It varies.

    Although, I don't think aspberger's is even an official diagnosis anymore.

    It means your smart as fuck is what it means.
    There is a very thin line that separates genius from madness and it is a red line that is razor sharp.
    Be careful what you expose yourself to because it could very well ruin you.

    The smartest people I've met were 4sx-INTJ.

    Genius range according to 4th grade testing. Does it really matter? It's not what you start with that matters, but rather, what you do with what you've got.

    I am an INFJ and I think I'm pretty smart. I got straight A's in the honors classes while not studying... that is, until my mental illness hit me really hard and everything went downhill.
