Ironic, since Half Scoop, Ivanka & I'm Eric together don't add up to the IQ of an average person.  Plus Trump is fixated on I, as his is also far below the average person.

I still think Biden should challenge Donnie to a Wonderlic test (which correlates enough to IQ to be a decent proxy)

My IQ is in the thousands.  Prove me wrong.

Oh wait.  I'm the 45th President of the United States.  You can't.

IQ is a poor measure of someone's intelligence and intelligence without discipline is a poor measure of someone's worth.

A true idiot - would never admit that.  So you are not an idiot so you are an idiot to think you are an idiot.  error error error [explosion]

Trump fixates on IQ because it's the only word he can spell.

For the record, I would be totally cool with a Presidential Jeopardy round in lieu of one of the debates.  Low scorer is legally eliminated from all ballots in all 50 states and any further participation in the debates.

Truly intelligent people don't have to talk about IQ scores. They prove their intellect by using it.

Donald Trump is not a smart man.

Truly intelligent people often have to deal with depression, autism, bipolar disorder, dyslexia, etc so it really seems like nothing to brag about.

Anyone who brags about their IQ is too stupid to realize that IQ means jack farking shiat. The fact that you can actually study and practice for an IQ test shows that it's not that accurate, especially when measure for something as abstract as "Intelligence"

That being said, there are boxes of rocks smarter than the Sudefed abuse in chief.

IQ has no bearing on wisdom, insight, consultative processes or listening. The President's job isn't solving farking Sudokus or predicing which shape is the next one in the series.

Similarly, the Dow Jones Index is a very limited indicator of how well the broader economy is doing, abandoning international partners to save money is not guaranteed to be a sound long term investment strategy and slamming scientists is just plain dumb.

Trump has no farking idea about anything. He's there to shovel wealth to the rich and fark up everybody else by being divisive and nasty. It's a very shiatty long term strategy for a country which is headed into decline having once been a great superpower.
 
2020-10-24 3:12:40 AM  
Yeah if he really thinks his IQ is high...

What about he and Biden do a LIVE IQ TEST ON TV FOR ALL TO SEE with cameras pointed on their answer sheet.

Biden would farking destroy him.

Nothing more dangerous than a fool with power who thinks he is smart.

Of course they're bullshiat. IQ tests are related to eugenics. They were created as a pseudoscientific way to claim that the rich and powerful have inherited greater intelligence than working class people.

Donald Trump has never said, written, or done anything that indicates that he has an intelligence that is above average.

Prove me wrong.

Donnie would be too chicken to ever press the button. He knows he doesn't know the answer (question) for sure, so he'll skip the question (answer) to not reveal to the audience that he's a clueless idiot.
 
2020-10-24 3:19:40 AM  
I would bet good money that Donnie Two Scoops actually thinks he has a high IQ because... someone told him his score, and it was fudged to make little Drumpf feel like a big man. Why take a second one after he did so well? He has held his knowledge that he was a genius all through his teen and adult life based on one of his family members feeling sorry for him. Which just fend into his narcissistic megalomania.

mrshowrules: IQ is a poor measure of someone's intelligence and intelligence without discipline is a poor measure of someone's worth.


I remember reading about a guy in one Malcolm Gladwell's books who was supposed to have one of the highest IQs in America. He grew up dirt farking poor and if I remember right, I think his father was an abusive alcoholic. He did manage to go to college, but never really attained much success. He just had a generally shiatty life. No connections he could benefit from cause his dad wasn't some banker or politician. I think he finally did end up with some decent paying job, but he didn't become like another Bill Gates. It wasn't really his work ethic, but just having a generally shiatty life that prevented him from ever becoming successful.

Hmmm....Bill Clinton was a Rhodes scholar. Obama was a law school honors grad at Harvard. No exactly idiots.
 
2020-10-24 3:37:39 AM  
He took an IQ test, and he outscored some of the brightest people. He would release the results, but they are under audit...

Everything and everybody has a value to him that must be quantified. Wealth, IQ, status. He then decides how you fit into his world.

Not even that. They're original purpose was to track a Child's development in comparison to their peers.

IQ and IQ tests were a fad in the 80's, like Rubik's cube and other things. It's not that Trump's "obsessed" with it, it's just that he's a relic and he's been stuck there ever since.

Also, he's a farking moron and he wouldn't recognize smart if he got smacked in the face with it, so he needs a measure stick.

And then he still makes up the numbers anyway.

Just like he makes up everything, so he doesn't have to learn anything.

It's pretty hilarious that he asserts he has a high IQ but never gives a number. Meaning he knows he doesn't have a high IQ and therefore feels like he has to cover for that.

I don't need no fancy IQ. I got me common sense.

For my smallville newspaper I wrote an annual Christmas Dinner For the Homeless article. Sometimes I wrote one every year.

One older homeless gentleman was telling another about how smart he was. "I grew up on a farm.  That's how I got smart. Wyomings are smart." It is difficult to refute logic like that.
 
2020-10-24 4:55:27 AM  
I was diagnosed with a ridiculously high IQ as a child.  I think most farkers will agree I'm not particularly intelligent.  Actually, most farkers don't know I exist.  Sometimes I wonder if any of you exist.  Then I wonder if I exist.  Then I cry myself to sleep.
 
2020-10-24 4:58:32 AM  
The normal IQ tests only measure up to 140, since mine hit that growing up 1-8 grade with those dot-tests.  That's already in rarified territory, but all it does is show that you're good at taking tests.  140 is in the third std deviation from average <1%, but so what? Do something with it!  What good is having an 800hp Corvette sitting in a garage?

And Mensa doesn't give IQ tests on their exams anymore; they didn't give me one 15 years ago when I thought I did rather well.  What is a number anyway?  If you're that intelligent, you know that autistic savants could score higher on those tests than a socially-adjusted person.  People who brag about IQ scores are 1) making that number up 2) only have an imaginary number to hang their self-worth upon.  SAD!

There is no such thing as a 200 IQ.

On every Message Board, I've seen everyone taking the MENSA test scores TWENTY POINTS above every other IQ test.

FAKE IQ to claim Mensa Membership! Get Mensa Duties!
