The Cattell B scale SD is 24; on a normal scale (SD 15), your IQ would be about 128.

lmao, you guys are really fucking stupid aren't you?

you do realize that the number that you get has value only in comparison to the population taking the test.

my 144 on the cattell is a 131 on the culture fair. both of these are 97th percentile.

the highest score you can get on either of these is in the 98th percentile. so what, that is a little over 130?

you would know if you took an actual supervised timed IQ test and not some online garbage that gave you the highest number.

>> No.9709184

Not-so-surprisingly, surgery doesn't require exceptional knowledge/neuroplasticity within medical fields. It's much worse if your anesthesiologist, who has to know a lot more math and chemistry than your surgeon, is low IQ.

The subset of medical skills that a surgeon applies his job largely consists of the less difficult elements of medical education: memorization of anatomy and procedures, with a strong need for focus. Neither should show a strong correlation with IQ, though med school admissions surely filter out the true idiots from becoming doctors. I wouldn't be shocked to hear that many high-IQ med school admits don't have the fine motor coordination to be successful physicists (consider how many internists have terrible handwriting.)

Funnily enough, Ben Carson (a black neurosurgeon) titled his autobiography "Gifted Hands."

Nah it bugged out on me I just though that was funny. A few questions in it bugged out and the page went blank so I refreshed and it gave me that.

Took it for real and got 125 so I am still retarded though, especially if these scores are inflated as much as I hear.

Hey if you don't mind having a retard poke around at your internal organs, more power to you, but I'd rather leave it to someone smart.

>> No.9714634

The fact that so many people don't get this is bait really says a a lot about how smart the people in this thread actually are

>> No.9714742

I didn't say that. Have you considered that maybe I want a hardworking surgeon with experience who also happens not to be a brainlet like yourself?

Probably had low grades, but teachers + parents constantly told him he was smart, but just needed to put more effort in.

Then maybe he thought that anybody that puts effort in must be trying to make up for being naturally dumb, so good grades = dumb.

So now he's trapped in a vortex of ever worsening grades, while his perceived intelligence increases.

At least that's what happened to me.

You can fight back. Marry a 150 IQ qt, she'll like that you are a low IQ, impulsive, emotionally lead brainlet.

>150 iq
Never seen one in the wild and probably never will because they are so rare
