when you give a specific number it is a tell that you are lying. you are graded into a bracket, either high or low in the given bracket.

I know people with 160 IQs who can't read an airline schedule. I know people with 100 IQs who design electronic circuitry.

I have 132. I was told that is really high. But still bad in math, but good in organisation and conversation.
Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26694717

I am the opposite. I am very good at math. My brain can do wonders with numbers.

It's language and conversation I have trouble with.

I wonder why? I wonder what that says about my brain? Does it meanI use my left brain more than my right brain?

Tests given to children are close to useless. Unless you have been tested as an adult, you have not been tested.

I also know people with high IQs who have mouths full of rotten teeth because they're to stupid to know how to use a toothbrush.
Quoting: Northman

Yes, high IQ's certainly does not mean the person will have common sense. Sometimes they are sadly lacking it. I would rather have average intelligence and a high amount of common sense. Wisdom/common sense is more valuable that being extremely smart.

I really wouldn't want to know my IQ. It does put you in a box. It can make someone very depressed or make someone a complete snob.

Im trying to assess how smart the people here really are.
I think a lot of you are really smart, far superior to the masses.

So please just leave a quick comment here if you are in the 160 or above IQ range.

Thank you.

Less than 1 % are over 140.

None are over 160 here.

160 is really exceptional.
Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26641483

Exceptionally exceptional.
Quoting: Anonymous Coward 300884

It's kind of funny, because I've noticed that 160 is about the point where 'really smart' intersects with 'emotionally unstable' and 'has trouble in society'.

140-155 is the highest performing range, imo.

Don't know what to tell you, but I was giving a number, and said that I was lumped in with all of the highest....but I WAS given a number. Also, I was 21 years old at the time.

simple math is done by the right half of the parietal lobe and the left half does more complex forms of math. so depends on what time of math you are doing at that time.

I took a few online IQ tests, seemed legit. I got 162 on one and 150-ish can't remember exact, on the next one.

I know I'm no Einstein so I dismissed those tests. Then took a real IQ test, like the poster I quoted said it took about a day for me to finish.

My score on that one is generally the score I go with, above all the internet IQ tests I have taken.

My score was 142.

Re: How many people have 160 IQ
135 as a kid but really a IQ test is bull i got high C's low B's in school but went off to college for powersports and was on the honor roll... why because most people can be dumb in some areas but school others in areas that they know (ie cant do trig put put a car or something with a engine in front of me and ill have it fixed no problem wirring diagrams engine re build or whatever) point is no one should be based of a stupid test that proves you can read and wright we all can do it just how far can you go before you need help

I was very indepth. Also it was in sections that were timed. I had to wait until the full time was expired to move on. Which lead to it taking long. Also I couldn't sit and do the whole thing at once.

It wasn't a 1000 page test or anything.

when you give a specific number it is a tell that you are lying. you are graded into a bracket, either high or low in the given bracket.
Quoting: Oengus

I have never heard of that. Maybe things have changed over the years. Back in the days of the dinosaurs, I took a genuine I.Q. test and received a specific number. I was told what bracket the number fell into, of course, but was still given a numerical score. This was a very long time ago; I was only 21-years old when I took the test.

BTW, my score was 130, which means I'm respectably smart, but not a genius.

I think the OP should have asked how many folks have an I.Q. of 140+. If you're looking for geniuses, I think that's more realistic (unless they're inflating I.Q. scores along with all the other test scores these days).

Oh, and online tests are bunk. I've taken online tests for kicks and scored as high as the 150's, which I know is total BS.
