The_Original_Roxtar: bell curves, how do they work?
[expressiveepicurean.files.wordpress.com image 591x303]
so, at 60, you're almost 3 standard deviations below the mean, in the bottom 1% of people.


You know, it's amazing how many of the .1% (IQs over 145) are here on Fark. By the sounds of the threads, every single one of those people has a Fark account, and an IQ of 145 is on the low end.

Lt_Ryan: redking194: Oh FFS. Anyone with an IQ below 70 is considered to have at least mild mental retardation. When did acknowledging reality become a bad thing?

It was part of the whole self esteem thing, everyone is special, everyone is perfect, and everyone gets a trophy.

A few weeks ago someone in the office used the term retard and a few people went off on how it was offensive. I had to bring up the fact that retard basically means to slow, and that mental retardation is a valid medical term in the DSM-IV. They still argued that people shouldn't be called retarded because it was offensive and they were just different.


I once had sex with someone who was slow. My friends told me I was farking retarded.

I have been tested at a very high IQ.  Everyone in my family has it.  I never really realized that other kids weren't up there, too, for the most part.  But as an adult it seems to be pretty glaring.  With the high intelligence that comes in our family, also comes some world crushing depression issues, bipolar, borderline personality disorder and a place on the Asperger scale to some degree.

Occasionally, I have to go in-patient at the local psych hospital for medication adjustments.  75% of the other patients are there for drug or alcohol rehab.  The other 25% are psych patients.  It is then you realize that you are locked up in hell.  The rehab patients think that the height of entertainment can be found watching 16 and Pregnant or Housewives of Grand Forks.  They find the Blue Book of AA too hard to read and understand.  They plan how they are going to get more drugs when they get out (most are court ordered attendance).  The worst part is when the recreational therapist comes and makes you play a game together.  She picks Scrabble.  Hey, I like Scrabble.
First play by the blond druggie, who tried to smuggle oxi into the facility in her vagina, plays the word DOG.  The mouth breather guy who is wearing a t-shirt that says I WANT YOU TO BLOW ME plays GRUNT.  Not bad.  I play QUARK and am told that it is not a word.  I give the definition, insisting that yes, it is a word.  A dictionary is found and I get my points.  I am then told that I am not playing fair by using hard words that not everybody knows and am banned from the game for the duration of my stay.

Idiots.

BadAttitude4U: As someone who was offered the presidency of Mensa and turned it down (I have an IQ of 221). I have to say that Mensa is clearly trying to set a precedent so they may take our retarded children and make soup out of them.

The All-Powerful Atheismo: It's this bullshiat attitude that caused me to reject Mensa. Yes I could have joined easily. That, however, is not the point. Their recruiting materials are so... arrogant. It's sickening.


Only 2% of the worlds population receive an IQ score high enough to join Mensa and they are all here on Fark.

Amazing.

Sit a carrot in front of an iq test and see how well it scores, Mr Reality.


I am no expert but I bet the headline is accurate and it would score less than 70...

I took the Mensa test years ago, just to see if I could pass. I did pass, but never joined. Why would I? I just wanted to see if I wasn't as stupid as I thought. Yet, in some ways, I am incredibly stupid. It's why I do not drive and have to be careful I don't wander or skate into the  street if I see something I find absolutely fascinating laying on  the ground. I'm surprised I've made it into my 40's, truth be told.

A high IQ does not equal "really smart" by any means. I'm living (so far) proof of that.
