Towie fan scores 161 on IQ test

Lauren, of Loughton, Essex, is the daughter of a black cab driver

This could be part of the reason. Studies of black cab drivers show them to be unusually intelligent, being required to know the areas they drive extremely well. The test they have to pass averages 12 attempts and almost three years of practice.

IQ scores become less valid as they get farther from the mean, simply because a lucky guess on one question can have a large effect. Once you are getting scores above about three standard deviations (145) all you can say with certainty is that the person probably has an IQ greater than 145. To give a precise numerical value is meaningless. Of course a highly intelligent person would know that.

They're very articulate, those black cab drivers.

Glad to see these two points made.

"bigger IQ" subby?
I think you mean "higher IQ"

Should I be concerned that the first thing that came to mind was coveting her kitchen and circula staircase?
 
2013-02-12 09:14:25 PM
And it makes her officially smarter than brainboxes like Professor Stephen Hawking and Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates, who both scored a mere 160.

Yeah, that's how it works.
 
2013-02-12 09:24:17 PM
Considering that IQ scores are (as I understand it) based on the current population, and the average is always 100, and surely the methods of measuring it have changed, is it even meaningful at all to compare a current IQ score with those of another time period?
 
2013-02-12 09:25:49 PM
All that and brains too?

Subbies know they have to find *real* Cuties once in a while or eventually even the thickies will catch on.

This one's passable, vaguely better than English cute, but still no Boxxy or Jennifer Love Hewitt.

Shortly after the interview, she was heard making the observation that "asian guys don't actually taste all that different."
 
2013-02-12 09:32:23 PM
People who who in fields with lots of really smart people don't ever think about stupid IQ tests.  Go hang out with a bunch of astrophysicists, or particle physicists, or brain surgeons, or whatever.  You won't hear anybody rambling on about scores that they got on a test that is poorly calibrated for anybody over 140 or so anyway.

I don't care what you scored on a test.  I really don't - it doesn't mean anything.  You can impress me by what you can actually achieve in school, or in work, or in your hobby.  An IQ of 160 is what, 4 standard deviations above the mean?  That means that there are literally 10s of millions of people who have been smarter than Einstein.  But I'll take an Einstein any day over somebody who might score better on a test than him.

She likes tanning and lives in England. Fake tanning is her only option.

To give a precise numerical value is meaningless. Of course a highly intelligent person would know that.


In all fairness to the girl, an intelligent person probably also has some amount of ability to plan forward and knows that her name showing up in a bunch of news articles about how unnaturally intelligent she is.  So, strategically, playing it up even though you know it's pretty much nonsense is a good strategic decision for someone about to run university and scholarship applications (especially if she wants to study in another country, where the A-levels system won't benefit her).

mamoru: Considering that IQ scores are (as I understand it) based on the current population, and the average is always 100, and surely the methods of measuring it have changed, is it even meaningful at all to compare a current IQ score with those of another time period?


It's a statistical index.  As mentioned before, 145+ means you're in the top one-percent-ish of the population for whatever the test measures.  What the test actually measures isn't actually particularly well defined apart from "the ability to do this kind of test", though, so take that with the requisite grain o' salt.

she does go out?

2013-02-12 09:35:02 PM
Good for her.  The hard part is putting an intellect like that to use in a fulfilling and worthwhile manner while not letting it turn you into a cynical bastard that hates the zombie hordes of farking idiots that you spend life surrounded by.
 
2013-02-12 09:36:22 PM
Of COURSE her IQ is higher than Einstein's. Einstein's dead.
 
2013-02-12 09:37:01 PM

so a porn star is smarter then you, how does it make you feel?
 
2013-02-12 09:39:50 PM
 Ya, but can she manipulate knowledge into the abstract the way that Einstein and Hawking do?
It's one thing to have capacity, but it's another to be able to take all of that data and turn it
around and make something totally revolutionary. That's what makes real genius. I've known some
very smart people, people that know subjects inside and out, but they don't have that next step into
extraordinary and profound. Those people are just really smart.
 
2013-02-12 09:39:53 PM
I seriously doubt she has a bigger IQ than former Philadelphia 76er Hersey Hawkins. That dude's IQ was so big and fat, I mean  like orca fat.
 
2013-02-12 09:40:36 PM
She's cute. And her clothes are cute. She's smart. She has a spiral staircase and a piano. I'm jealous.

taxandspend: Wake me when these geniuses use their knowledge to change the world like Einstein did.


I'd rather they not change it like Einstein did, if the result is a new superweapon.

It would be nice to have a girlfriend/wife who's a genius but also have room for emotions. I'm fine being under a smart, capable, and loving (and of course beautiful) woman's command.

I'd be curious to see the actual test.  I could probably find it with the Googles, but... meh.

Bah, in South Korea a score like that would be laughed at.  This girl isn't trying hard enough.

In my experience, MENSA members, or at least the subset of them that announce it publicly, are usually dicks.

Yeah, I could be a member, but I didn't like how that ones I met talked about 'other people' with disdain.

I'm sure they aren't all like that, but I wanted nothing to do with my local group.

(Still, better than Scientology)

Don't forget 16 is legan in the UK.  How long before she shows up on page 3?

I would have a seat over there, but other farkers have filled them all.

Nothing else to do but go to my bunk.
