How would we know? Your intellect is tied into your personality, more or less, so how could we predict what we would do if we could see, understand and affect things we can't even imagine right now.

My IQ is already in the 99.8:th percentile (IIRC). By no means a genius, but considerably above average at any rate. And while it's obvious that it's given me perspective I find lacking in most others, all it's done otherwise is give me a good background in academia and a nice career. But when people study and work hard, they usually end up just as far as their potential, or motivation, will take them. In my case it means that even with an IQ of 143, I ended up in a job where I'm surrounded by people just as intelligent as I am. In my own bubble of colleagues, friends, and acquaintances, I'm barely above average.

The world has had many true geniuses. Most of them people have never really even heard of though, because what they use it for, and how much it pays off in the end, is largely down to personality and luck.

Maybe if you'd instead taken a few elementary courses in statistics, you'd understand why your personal experience counts for shit all. This is not a matter of opinion, it's well studied and documented that IQ correlates strongly with mental acuity, which in turn correlates with one's likely position in the society. You can deny it like any flat-earther or anti-vaccination idiot all you like. That doesn't change the facts.

Yes, this doesn't mean that every person with a low or a high measured IQ is stupid or intelligent, respectively, but the outliers are surprisingly rare. Take 5 random people with an IQ of 100 and another 5 with an IQ of 140, and make them compete in any intellectual subject. Even at such small group sizes, the odds are already astronomically in favor of the 140 IQ people beating the ever living shit out of the other 5 in almost any subject.

Maybe if you had interpreted the first post correctly, you'd understand why I phrased my response this way. I understand the extremely limited value of anecdotal "evidence." My point is simply that IQ is more robust when comparing populations than for predicting individual outcomes. If one has a high IQ, one should not necessarily have any more rosy an opinion of one's potential in STEM after considering more germane factors (like actual STEM performance).

The average person with IQ 120 may be more successful than the average person with IQ 80, but most STEM majors are above that point to begin with. Whatever you consider to be an "astronomical" IQ probably has shit-for-all incremental validity for predicting STEM success. Gibson and Light found the average Cambridge physics professor to have a Wechsler IQ of 127.7. Please don't cite that study from 1952 to "refute" this. The test Roe used wasn't thoroughly validated.

"Mental acuity" isn't even well defined. Do we use Wechsler's definition or Cattell's? Somebody else's? It's a reified construct that always goes back to IQ. Circular argument is circular.

A super low IQ score is probably accurate or intentional most of the time.
If you were in a room talking to people with 130 up to max score you probably couldn’t figure out who was who without cheating or being told/given hints.
I agree you can generally tell from a 95 IQ to a 130 though.
If you get 120+ on an IQ test it means you’re less likely to have stunted brain development or inherited brain damage, at least with regards to the things IQ tests try and cover.
If you can’t visualize which rotated shapes fit together you have damage to or lack that aspect of your spatial intelligence, for instance. Another guy might be able to do that, but be less capable at other tasks within the IQ test than you. At the end, it’s a dude with a degree who decides what your IQ is regardless of the outcomes of his tests and even if you give non standard answers in the parts where you are questioned verbally or where you physically manipulate a puzzle; he can still arbitrarily place you based on his (or a panel’s) personal judgement.
I scored super super high as a kid and rather high as an adult, probably because the administer when I was a kid overinflated my score due to being exceptional for my age group at the time.

>> No.11083243

>>11083196
Yes, after 120ish, the difference in score is less meaningful. If some guy has an absurd 222 IQ and another guy has a 145 IQ, it’s at best the same difference in intelligence as a someone with 105 IQ vs. someone with 110.
If the guy with the 222 score takes another test with a new administer who does not know his former score, he could easily only score 145. If the 145 does the same; he might score 200.
Someone who scores (in earnest and not as a protest, prank, etc) 75 will probably never be able to score 130 and vice versa though, suggesting that up to the 130 range of IQ, the test is a useful measure.

The truth about being "smart" is that the only thing that scales up faster than the things you can achieve is the expectations put on you for what you need to/should achieve. It doesn't matter in the end if you can technically and practically do more if what is expected from you will always be breathing down your neck and constantly smothering you. The only difference between a midwit and a smarter person is that one thinks that they could have escaped their problems had they had "better" luck, while the other finally gets to realize that there isn't really a way out. If your personality at least makes you mentally strong enough to help you pull out of that struggle and keep on doing whatever you feel like then that's good for you, you don't really need to be a top percentile genius to have that and you'll probably live more happily and healthily than someone that is. Otherwise they both just come to the same conclusion, that they just want out of their misery once and for all.

There's a few problems with this line of thinking. Besides the obvious grass is greener issue, where you don't even realize all the issues, increased expectations (see >>11084301 ) put in intelligent people, there's also a rather high chance that what you just said is just an excuse.

Every single one of us is limited by our looks, abilities, color, background, physical and mental health... everything really. Those of us who work to the best of our abilities, whatever that may be, can become reasonably successful despite our limitations. Usually the ones who think like what you just said however, are just hiding behind the excuse and not even putting in the effort.

Even among the very intelligent, very few ever become millionaire level successful in anything, for instance. Since at that level your parents, background and subsequent networks, color, sex, and dumb luck plays a much larger role than plain intellect. So a more realistic goal line for what successful really means, is just being healthy, having at least some degree, and having a middle class income with a more or less stable job. Most average IQ people can accomplish that, with years and years of hard work. For us above average IQ people it takes a few less years and a little less work, but other than that it's not all that different.

It's something I honestly struggle with. Being brilliant is unironically a curse.
I am almost totally content to smoke pot, drive around, and listen to music all day. It makes me feel happy and comfortable.

Just watch cartoons and be comfy and enjoy the company of the people I love.
But there's shit that keeps me awake at night. Shit I wake up at night screaming about.
Could you die contented and fulfilled knowing that you practically had superpowers and still watched everyone burn while you did nothing?
I know the assertion that I'm intelligent is probably taken as presumptuous and arrogant on its own, but what do you do when you know it's true and it shows whether you try to show off or not? Don't you have a responsibility to do something incredible if you have incredible potential for it? Doesn't it get frustrating to stand around with your limp dick in your hands and watch everybody flail through something when you know you have an idea that would help?

And not one of them has accomplished a single thing comparable to super powers. Besides which, any smart person will tell you the brain is fucking useless unless you train and use it.

I mean seriously? Who actually believes this bullshit movie myth that a high IQ means you can just sit your ass down doing nothing for 20 years in a row and then suddenly pull magic out of your rectum? Yes, exceptionally intelligent people can learn things in a relative instant, that normal people will never be able to even understand. But you're not competing against normal people, you're competing against other exceptionally intelligent people.

Few things piss me off like smart people who develop an ego, for being such fucking underachievers that they're stuck working with people far dumber than themselves. That's LITERALLY the same as a 30-yearold man going to a fucking kindergarten and thinking himself such a fucking alpha for being better than the kids there.

If you work worth a damn, you'll basically automatically end up as far up as your abilities can take you. As an intelligent person, I'm surrounded by more or less equally smart other people. Luckily enough though, the problem above isn't all that common. Because while I've known my share of people who think they're such fucking geniuses, the reason they never get anywhere at all is because they're actually dumb as fuck. They just don't realize it themselves. Dunning Kruger in action, I suppose.

I mean, I agree to an extent. As you get further and further in life, you eventually find out that EVERYBODY around you is that talented and driven, that EVERYBODY around you was the smartest kid in their class, and that you're not that special. Like the anon above said, you wind up surrounded by people as smart as you are, and like you said, there's still millions of people in the top percentile. And you're right, it's competitive in these environments and there's always someone better, because the standard isn't the average dude, it's other really smart people. You're just a number, you're a dime a dozen, and there's hundreds or thohsands of people like you who can take your place. And that's perspective.
But you can't tell me you've never stepped out of that competitive environment for a while and just stood in awe of how slowly the average person thinks. Again, I know this is gonna come across as me being an asshole, but haven't you ever just stood back and been like, "Damn, people are TANGIBLY that dumb?"
Because they are. By the numbers, you really are the smartest person in the room relatively often outside of really unusual environments.
They're both true and they're both worth keeping in mind for perspective.

"Full nutrition" is such a rarity amongst diets (~some 1%) and scholarly articles that most physiological correlations are "barely relevant", especially because energy levels, personality, social interest and investment, skillfulness, appearance-features, and other aspects of genetic expression are basing on nutriments.

>>11082859
Is an example. The dietary omega 3 (evidenced benefiting telomere lengths, and thus of its utility in building up cellular environments, and youth) is simply usually not there – protein amounts, potency of antioxidants, all vitamins and minerals, nutrient availability and timing amongst digestion rates and insulinogenics, substrates of epinephrine, dopamine, melatonin, and serotonin (being available OTC).

Hungers are associated with energy homeostasis, cholinergic-dopaminergic rewards, neurotrophy, et al. (and are even required for rewards from alcohol or food) – productivity, motivation, energy, and awards. There are correlative optimizations for increased GH, decreased T, (even thus) greater amounts of T .. which, even in women, heightens sensation, libido, and orgasm. So, sensory and behavioral benefits are huge, including ~optimizations of hormonal responses for energy, fun, stimulation, intensity, and (thusly) happiness and intelligence. Propagation of cellular chemicals is simple. Humans are *very* proficient at A to B, and actually having metabolites is obviously of much more potential.

>Can you explain in simple turn, is iq genetic or not..
"Sorta". Genetic similarity is listed as 99.5% – but is possibly 100%. It comes from nutrition and behavior, being defined by even repeats of looks / gestures. It's being actively switched around what's activated, and the status is passable to offspring.

The problems are ..
A). full nutrition, especially fundamental cellular building blocks, but also further substrates for ~optimizations (metabolites of energy; compounds producing specific effects; and supplements for neurochemical metabolites) ..
B). "health and behavior", deriving from hormones, which are further caused by eating habits (e.g., calorie distribution), musculature, and BF%. Also associated are appetites, flavors, sensations, libido, and orgasm.

Humanity has basically been malnutritioned for thousands of years ..

Here's some redpill for you anons
Personal IQ means nothing since the noise from random factors affects it too much
On the other hand measuring the IQ of larger groups of people says a lot about those people

Therefore: IQ value of some random girl = worthless

IQ testing is so flawed, that the irony is only stupid people take them seriously. For one, some of them require literal prior knowledge, but even if some don't, it's pretty clear that the more you practice on them the better you become at scoring, because you are simply trained for them. It's not a coincidence that any random Mathematician will score considerably higher than expected because simply their literal job is to practice on complex logic similar to that testing (PS. sure a literally clinically deficient may never score well, but it comes to show how flawed the entire thing is when simple training can supposedly make you "inherently smarter" (it doesn't)).

It depends. If you go out and create amazing things, people are going to say you have high IQ, but if you don't, they are going to say you have low IQ.

You sound like one of those "i wanna change the world so it suits my biased notion of what an ideal, utopian world is" but fail to realize that their dumb retarded opinion has been highly influenced by media and society at large and that the only tru way of living is to please yourself. Most politicians are extremely high iq ans that's why they usually end up rich. Why would you want to prevent the 2008 banking crisis? What would you get out of it? It's not like you can't just take preventive measures (for yourself) so you don't lose all your money. What do you expect to get out of it? A blowboj? A monument in your honor? Would you effort be really worth it if the same people that would've been fucked by said crisis went on to lose it all in the next crisis or just spend it all on unnecesary consumer goods? Also if you ever had the possibility to be in a high political position what would you change? Would you try to help weak, disposable people in detriment of average or even smart people? Would you really care for the same retards that listen to Nicki Minaj and have absolutely no self control to the point where theyre all fat fucks? You're a pretentious cunt and every action that you think you may be doing for "humanity" is done only to boost your ego and give you an excuse for complaining about politicians, thinking theyre dumb when you couldnt do half the shit a politician pulls. Criticizing a politician is equivalent to what leftist retards do when they criticize non ugly, non mentally ill, strong people. Fuck you and your severely flawed logic, retard.

What would the IQ of a savant person be? Someone who can recite a piano peace by listening to it once by ear with no missed notes and perfect tempo, but needs help putting his pants on and posts regularly on 4chan?

also

What would a deaf/dumb/blind person who can only communicate by touching other people's IQ be?

also

What would a person from a completely different culture's IQ be? Maybe a veteran who has slayed countless foes in battle, but is completely illiterate?

also

What would someone with a fucked up brain who can't read the test correctly because they are dyslexic, have a mirrored, upside down, jumbled vision with constant non-stop hallucinations IQ be?

Are people from the past expected to have a worse IQ than people in the future? Is the cave man who dies because he ate a poison berry expected to have a lower IQ point than the future man who can consult his berry app to find out the berries are poisonous because a distant ancestor died eating them?
