- Instinctual Variant
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).
I fucking don't know what this means.
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!
