People always lash out whenever someone is proud of themselves and comments on their IQ numbers.....but big deal huh? When I began putting extra
efforts into working my non-cerebral assets and grew BIG GUNS ....lots of people were jealous and commented that I must be on steroids.....lol....I
still wore lots of tight t-shirts because I was proud of my hard work and accomplishments....really the work was easy and I didnt feel like it was
such a huge accomplishment....lol.
I generally come in at 147-148 and there are some questions I refuse to answer and simply bail on based on principals ...lol....There are many
different kinds of"IQ" tests and the Mensa ones are no more difficult than others IMHO......lol...I take it all with a grain of salt.
But I have had nothing but headaches dealing with a robust learning habit all my life, since I was a small kid I encountered static even before I was
in school.....and school was hades....just dealing with peers[playing dumb to not have to pick on people constantly by teaching them which results in
being ostracised] and commenting to teachers who couldnt get their "message" across to my classmates effectively almost always got me punished
I read every word or every page of every book of the World Book Encyclopedias AND both Dictionaries when I was 9
.I ordered books for the school library as a kid with the Librarian.My School created an Award for me on Awards Night.....and the weirdest thing of
all is this....my nephew checked out a University level textbook I BEGGED to have brought in to the Elementary Libray for me specificlly in the 1970s
.....he unbelievably checked it out 34 years later .....and I was the ONLY OTHER STUDENT WHO HAD EVER CHECKED IT OUT.....LOL.
I made myself stop learning at about 12 years old and began to focus on Athletics instead of being a bookworm/nerd and ultimately became my High
Schools Most Outstanding Male Athlete and also a Student Coach and ultimately ended up working with Olympic level Athletes.
I quit High school before Graduation due to life circumstances gifing me the chance to make different choices.
So to be frank who knows what damages my mind could have sustained had I remained in School for any longer than I did.....universities are so
restricted and so artificially contrived and controlled....I believe they are by and large regressive to an open mind and a constant learner.
Now I am an old coot....and we have THE INTERNET.....PURE POETRY......you can find ALL truths now outside of the lies of the contrived education
I think people have pineal gland changes @ 6-7 and lose their optimal ability to be visual or coneceptual thinkers and learners....we go from 3-D
learning down to 1-D learning IMHO.I think some of us keep this conduit open ....for longer...some for life.Just a guess here...lol.
