    I guess I am on the opposite end of that thing is I am 6' 2" tall and I will be honest with my IQ is only below average of 83 all around so I thnk it is a bunch of quano and I do not subscribe to the tests of IQ either but why was my SAT score 2310 because a person of only an 83 IQ to have a good SAT score to me it is an enigma and I can not answer that one at all and hopefully someone else can please?

    How old is you? They only changed the SATs to three section of 800 pts a few years ago.

    To clarify I did take the new SAT test and that is the score I received because I am thinking about going back to college and get my Masters in Technological Communication Architecture.

    :icon_huh: I do not understand what this is and do you think that this thread is going bye bye or something because the image looks like an M80 or something similar and ready to explode.:icon_huh:

    Please can you explain this to me I am perplexed and it will be much appreciated?

    I thank you ahead of time as well.

    Nah, there's nothing subtle about it. I'm just telling compubolt that he's getting a red bomb, as soon as I can rep him again.


    :yes:

    My IQ score is well above average. I'm no Mensa candidate but I can sure tell that your IQ score is above 83... :icon_rofl: :icon_rofl: :icon_rofl:

    Oh, I guess I'm short and smart... Sassy too.... :icon_mrgreen: :icon_mrgreen:

    I only had one drink last night and sipped it for hours... Raspberry liquor with a shot of Saki. No hangover this morning, thank God....

    Hangovers suck, especially when it is nice out on a Saturday. Gotta suck it up and take the kids somewhere. :icon_wink:

    I apologize to you guys for this one and I have a friend Stan who has is a Construction Engineer and has an IQ of 146 and is not part of Mensa he does not like them at all it is just his opinion. Stan is 5' 3" tall so according to the article he should be a total dumb *** and that is farther from the truth so it tans my hide about these articles that says if you are the this thing or the that thing it makes a person better at at the whatevers it just brings lunacy to the whole study that was done. I am P***** off that it just does not meet the common sense rule to me what so ever so I apologize for the venting and I am sorry.

    Since my IQ is not over 150, I don't know this for sure...

    I've been told that Mensa offers automatic membership to those with really high IQs, over 150... Apparently they just need to fill out some paperwork. Two people have told me this and neither of them bothered with filling out the paperwork... :icon_rofl:

    I should take the Mensa test--for grins... I'd probably wouldn't pass...:icon_shrug: :lol:

    In elementary school, our IQs were tested---so we all have our IQ scores out there somewhere.

    TT's is 83... so mine is 38 :icon_mrgreen:
