Do you know your IQ Score and do you think it has any practical meaning? Or is it just a outdated way of judging Potential?

Hm, i'm slightly over 80. It only proves i'm horrible with math and stuff like that. And also that i have lot of concentration problems put my scores down at some parts of the iq test.
What does it say about me for the rest? I don't know, there's things i'm good at (like hisory), so in that regard i'm smart, there's things where i'm hopeless at so in that regard i'm stupid.

It means i'm not fit to be an engineer. So i guess it is useful in finding jobs (or not finding, in my case) But it only means something if it's a real thorough test with lot of extra explanation. (it was included in my ASS/ADD diagnosis, but the whole thing is something like 15 pages)

IQ does not matter, I am not going to say what mine is, but will say it doesnt matter. Effort, Passion and Consistency will trump genius every time.

Mines 183 >.> I still think I am stupid and that I can't do anywhere near as much as I would like to.
Thats part of why I asked, I am technically Highest Genius level and I think that and 2 Dollars can buy me a pack of gum

Agreed, Venessa seems to always have nothing but well articulated arguments. When she speaks it seems well thought out and planned.

I... usually get the critic that i always react too emotional and too impulsive though...
wow this really is an amazing place...
I'm just never talking standard publicocrap and don't post for the sake of getting reation. But still post for the sake of giving my opinion. Well, thanks!

But i guess that is more EQ than IQ. When it comes about rational science discussions, you'll see what i mean...
