dannysauer: Mock26: aearra: 162 is brainier than Einstein and Hawkings? Interesting. My son is higher IQ than that and my daughter is higher than my son (by 20 points). Strange they aren't interested in mensa.

Probably because you have not yet told them that you made up their IQ scores.

They probably heard about the membership fee, and were smart enough to say "screw that; I can make my own friends without paying some elitists $63/year to let me into their club."

At least, that's why I didn't join Mensa. That, and bragging about IQ is pointless. Smart actions matter, while smart potential is just unused potential. I don't want to pay to be a member of a group of people who don't realize that.

Besides, all an IQ test really does is tell how good you are at taking an IQ test.

The problem with people with an incredibly high intelligence is that they know how smart they are. It is difficult to engage in a stimulating conversation with a simpleton so they are often a lonely lot of folks. Then they start to feel bad, because they know it isn't the person's fault that they aren't as smart and cannot keep up with the latest science talk. They'll usually dumb themselves down, but even that can take its toll eventually. This is all just my experience, tho. Others may be different. Sometimes it's great to talk about stuff like television and movies. Plus if you have one or two high IQ friends it works out well.
