What is your IQ?

I was just wondering b/c so many people in america lack the ability to think for themselves, and follow everything that they are told. You either fit in this box or that box and anyone that doesnt is "scary"

I know this isnt really a current event but it fit into this catigory the best

Dont count the internet iq tests please

I'll start mine is 125

  • I know b/c when I was setting myself up to go to college it was part of the qualification, oh and I just started so it's pretty good for not having any college

  • I have enough confidence in my intelligence to never have felt the need to take an intelligence test.

  • Your IQ only shows your potential. I had a math teacher once who said your I Will was more important than your IQ. Logic and common sense (which is no so common any more) probably serve us better than having high IQs. If the schools and other exposures don't teach us to think for ourselves the things we need for a life with fewer regrets, what is it worth?

  • I do not know my iq but i know what you mean about the boxes. I grew up in a small town were you were looked down upon if you didnt fit which at times made me feel not so smart. When I moved away and grew up I found out that I was actually pretty darn smart.
    It;s sad but so many people just listen to what they are told

  • I.Q. has nothing to do with someone thinking for themselves. Eistein was a genius and reportedly couln't tie his own shoes. He believed it took too much time that could be devoted to physics and mathmatics. He was also dyslexic.. He was a genius...and often lacked common sense.
