i do not care what my iq is. i was told when i was a child that i had a high iq, but all i can do with it is fight my way out of my jungle of misperception.
if you have an high IQ and you dissemble concepts that are not relevent to anyone else, then it is useless to the outer world.

my world is so occluded that if i could not think my way to a reasonable state of reality i would be a basket case. it is a hard slog to work out what is going on without a natural affinity to what is happening in the world of people.

i am like a robot that has a good AI but fails to match the reality in other peoples heads.

Nice little bell-curve we've got going here! :)

I was never in Mensa or any gifted kids' programmes - my parents don't believe in it. Now I wish I'd been properly challenged at school - I wonder where I'd be at now if I had been. But the school I went to in NZ reckoned social skills were just as important as academic ability, so I had to do the same work as everyone else, right the way through, even though I was often doing it in half the time. After a while, I stopped bothering - it just bored me out of my mind!

I've absolutely no idea. The vastly disproportionate number of people with IQs of 130 and above is... intimidating. :P

I got an official IQ test done by a professional last year and the professional said that my IQ is 77. :( I do NOT know how or why my IQ is 77 when I live by myself and when I am really independent. :(

Taken a few tests... all put me somewhere between 130 and 145ish.

IQ scores in themselves don't matter in the long run, though.
It was only developed to determine if children needed special education services (or what was considered to be special education services 105 years ago), and it has evolved over a century to do anything from assisting in making diagnoses (for those who have "low" scores) to being yet another thing people can brag about (for those who have "high" scores.) It's stupid.

A psychiatrist once estimated my IQ to be between 130-140, but no actual test has ever been performed.

I'm not sure my exact number but I'm somewhere in the 115-120 range, don't know why it is so low for an aspie. It was a test I took at school in grade 3 or 4, so it probably pretty official.

I was tested as a child but I'm pretty sure I've gotten dumber from too much weed. A little pot made me more creative and less anxious, but then I went overboard once living on my own, and went through a long period of constant-highness. I emerged with even worse distractibility and a diminished memory (but there were positive effects too, I don't regret it).

I'd trade another 20 or 30 IQ points for the same number of EQ points... I might be technically "dumber" but I bet I'd be a better employee, friend, etc. My EQ score places me in the handicapped range lol.

I have a number I usually consider myself at, because it is the average number I get on an average day, but I have been professionally tested many times and my lowest and highest scores differ by almost 50 points.

Hello all. Masterdieff is correct, as was the individual that mentioned how the IQ scores came from different testing instruments and therefore are not comparing "apples to apples". I've had several IQ tests and while reporting the numbers seems to be "ego stroking" I'll say that the delta was 44 points from the lowest to the highest.... Now I know IQ can changes with age, and I am definitely slower than IU used to be in my 20s, but I think a lot of that can be chalked up to different tests, test proctors and how I was doing that day. Maybe no one else does, but I have dumb days and smart days. Hard to get my mind into taking a test when I am worried about some up-coming or past social event, what my blood sugar is or if I am going to have to keep looking away from how the tester is/isn't dressed. IQ is meaningless in many ways anyway, it doesn't test the ability to be motivated, perform under pressure, deal with people, be happy, or much of anything else. The person that was willing to trade some IQ or EQ.... I think that's an interesting idea.
