The i.Q. is just a drop of water in an ocean of crativities. Intelligence is only the perception of error. You don't have to worry about these things.

If you suspect you may be stupid, you are not.
Really stupid people are sure they are very smart and always right.

The test said I'm 58% stupid. It's because I didn't have a clue with the math problems. :(

It's only another silly online test, posted for your amusement, so try not to worry too much about it.

That proves it, it's definitely a silly test! Or I'm a genius who just had to look up how to spell the word genius :scratch:
To be fair, I did cheat on the "How many American states..." question because I'm not American so it can piss off :lol:

That you seek information and clarification suggests to me that you are anything but stupid.

Making mistakes can happen to anyone, but a mistake probably means not enough information to get the job right first go, and not enough information is not the same as stupiity

I don't know what all those mean, but I do know that you come across as quite knowledgeable. You may struggle, but you make good use of what you've got. I find you understand things that I don't. Take it as a complament. On this site you are wize. :)

Similar to me. My husband often worries that he's not clever but he's great at building things and doing practical things which is a skill I'm almost totally lacking in. Most of us must be clever in some ways and stupid in others.

Are you still on the thread Spede? What are you good at?

I believe stupid is a subjective term.

Many people say that those with intellectual learning disabilities are stupid, but I don't think that's true. I once knew a person with an intellectual learning disability and he may have been unable to read or write or even live independently but he was brilliant at painting pictures.

I believe people with learning disabilities / low IQ / other intellectual issues who are aware of their limitations are not stupid. Stupid people are those who believe they are always right and never wrong and act accordingly.

"smart" and "stupid" are vague words that are subjective and often meaningless

If someone tells you you are "stupid" it is an insult

If someone tells you you are "smart" it is condescending and patronizing

"I know you're smart" counselor Jamie Adair had the nerve to tell me

:roll:

That b***h was 35 and I was 31


If you want, take an IQ test

Some insurances pay for it

College students could go to the psychology department and ask if it does iq tests

Otherwise , clients have to pay out of pocket



If you get a diagnosis, you might be eligible for testing accommodation at school, reasonable accommodation at work, government benefits


The primary care physician arranged a neuropsychological evaluation for me

It's scheduled for next Friday

That's the only thing I have to look forward to

Have been looking forward to it for a long time


Not all diagnosis are correct
