I actually did. And as I said before, there is more "intelligence" than just logic. There are tests to see how well you do in language, maths, or general logic.

And since you are so sceptic, are you sure you got my point at all? The thing about the development of the masses?


Also for all those who took the suicide thing literal: READ again!

scored 122 on that stupid test and I guessed on all the pattern ones.

Just idiotic.

Can't see a pattern in some numbers? Must be stupid!

I like the forbes article in your op

so the whole premise is false or no?

The key point is the second paragraph in the article;

The metric evaluated to reach this conclusion isn’t one most would guess. Rather than comprehensive IQ test scores declining over time, researchers focused on declining reaction times–a metric that correlates with general intelligence for reasons that aren’t entirely clear.

That is exactly where I think the premise is flawed.

Hmmm, if you got that out of my post then so be it, but I certainly said, nor implied no "fault". Just speaking to the stats is all.

And I admit it, I am a IQ-racist. I don't care where you come from, what colour you have, but I won't bore myself in a conversation about Kardeshians.


I know a guy who is doing a Phd in physics at Oxford university, his favourite TV show is Jersey shore.

What you are doing is actually tapping into something that really piss's me off about ATS, its full of people who believe they are intellectually elite despite numerous posts on this site that prove they are quite possibly the opposite.


Agreed, I know a couple of University professors that would not know which end of a spanner you would use to knock a nail in with and could not boil an egg.

I know other guy's that would if asked to spell their own name need it to be "best 2 out of three" and have built houses from scratch.

Intelligence is relative to the task in hand and cannot be quantified in my opinion.

So according to you, I have a measured IQ by a professional (not your stupid on-line shear it on FB test) of lower than 120, I should just not bother having kids despite there being no actual prove that higher IQ'd parents produce higher IQ'd kids.

Thats the issue not your frankly disgusting suicide remark, joking or not its a pretty horrible thing to suggest people you deep to be stupid kill themselves and its also equally disgusting to joke about suicide.

OP I am having difficulty in believing your OP is above 120

Why? Because I have a different opinion and sense of humour than you do?
You're right I must be stupid...

A little off topicish but has anyone ever seen this B movie?

It is a dystopian tale about a future where everyone's IQ is regulated to eliminate discrimination.


You may notice a young "Sam Gamgee"

I do not think you are stupid but I do feel on this you are misguided and arrogant.

Either that or bored and looking for an interesting thread.



EDIT: watch the above B movie, I think you would like it.

So you think it is ok to joke about suicide?

and you also hold the opinion that those with a IQ lower than 120 should kill themselves?

yes or no OP

EDIT Bonus qustion:

Are you really just sitting in your chair right now reading the responses to this wishing you had never bothered posting this thread? if so just admit to being wrong on this one and that its made you look a little foolish and move onto the next thread. (offering you away out of this)

I rolled a 122 on that test. I really couldn't be bothered to unscramble the letters & then know if it was an ocean country animal whatever. Not sure if any of these questions really determine anything about a person...

I think its higher.

Its not even a reduced disposition. Its a general attitude.

Its a mentality.

They are not dumber, they are more retarded if that makes sense.

Snowflakes or assholes.....normal people are in short supply.

Being an asshole makes you will yourself into retardation like being a fanciful snowflake does.

Its a dangerous situation for the rest.

Makes survival mode kick in and noble sentiment fade away.

Most dont even want to think about this though. They like to think everything is fine.

Also IQ tests are BS.




I officially bestow upon you a high score for creative thinking.

You're right. I am bored and looking for a fight. Don't really know why.
But I think my next thread will be about suicide and how I don't get why it has such a bad reputation.

I'm in the top 3% and as such, I know better than to have children.

137, lowest score I've ever gotten on an IQ test, so I might be getting dumber, but I think the OP is even dumber (not you yourself, just what you wrote.) Besides recommending suicide to people with IQs under 120, you're claiming that it is a statistical fact that 95% of the people who "get children" are idiots. Then you add that the other 5% are sent to elitist schools learning elitist behaviors. Do you actually believe these are real numbers? Do you actually believe there is no in-between?

You're actually making up numbers and presenting them as facts, in order to justify wanting to eliminate everyone below a certain IQ, so that only "elitists learning elistist behaviors" will live on. Bizarre!

Oh come on now.

You are either up or down here. When your right your right and when your wrong your wrong.

This time you are wrong but possibly for all the right reasons.

your embarrassing yourself now.

You are wrong one this, everyone one is wrong sometimes, not admitting to it is frankly embarrassing when everyone else knows how very wrong you are.

You seem to have just created this thread because you were bored, just looking for something to talk about.... i actually feel sorry for you now.

Oh the irony on its site.. One really shouldn't question the intelligence of others whilst not showing a huge amount of it themselves...

And culling the population because they don't meet your standards..
Mmmm. . Where have I heard bs like that before?
