Most people (locally) would probably consider the average klikker very smart or a genius, mainly because we're usually good at math and/or other subjects.
Hamish- there have been people who've scored over 190 on several different IQ tests. There's this one twelve year old kid that's done that and is in med school at the University of Chicago.
I guess it all depends where you excel. If your "thing" is logic, and an IQ test is based on logic, chances are you'll get a VERY high IQ.
Someone like me though, that has less "logical" reasons for doing things would probably score lower. The funny thing though is that I can explain the reasons behind things I do in a logical fashion, and almost everything I do has a logical reason.
Yes, it may be true that Einstien had an IQ of about 160 or so, but remember that (real) IQ tests also look at the speed at which people answer questions and look at your language skills. Einstien may have excelled in maths, logics, and physics, but what about the rest?
And yes, it IS true that IQ tests are irrelevant for the most part. Plenty of people I know with very high IQ's do pretty poorly academically coz they just... shrug most of the world off as too easy and don't work as hard as the academically smarter guys . I believe that some psychologists are working on something to test that whole multiple-intelligence thing, though.
Seeing how Sejj probably ran away from this post, I just might work on that little test. And regardless of what Hamish says, I still wanna make something that uses a calculator. If only I wasn't so damn lazy... I'd have already made one by now.
