Honestly, I don't think that IQ really measures intelligence, or whichever way you call it.
However, a neuropsychologist urgently advised me to take the WAIS IV test, just to determine if ever I may have some autistic traits (that's weird to assume this, since I'm clearly extrovert).
And the result I received today... well... it said "no, you're not an Aspie...", but clearly something else (Total IQ = 151/160). :shrug:

I fucking don't know what this means. :huh:

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.

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.

Look at that, I guess you can depending on what test you take.


Shit people must lie about their IQs a lot.

They give IQ, among a battery of other tests, in neuropsych evals.

132 used to be the entry point but there's flex, reliant on what IQ test results you're relying on. Some tests aren't considered acceptable.

As a person with an IQ of 3000, I can assure you that this is not the case.

A few months ago, I was curious about what my IQ might be. I wanted to take an IQ Test but found out they are extremely expensive. As a student I can’t really afford to pay a few hundred bucks just for something I’m just curious about. But fortunately, I landed on the Mensa website and saw that theirs is only 40 bucks for student. So, I took it. I was somewhat disappointed because turns out it’s not different from any internet test. There were 45 questions about matrices. At least on the internet they are free, and you get the results instantly.

Forgive me if this has already been said but...What EXACTLY IS IQ anyway? How can you measure a person's intelligence? What is Intelligence, BTW?
We need to dissect the meaning of both "intelligence" AND "IQ" to be able to determine exactly what they are. I think everyone has a different perspective and understanding of the above 2 words. Hence, this becomes immeasurable.
IQ tests, in my opinion, do not tell the truth at all about a person's cognition of the outside or their inside world. It is a futile quest.

The mbti manual says there's an 11 point difference between N and S types, in favor of N types of course.
