I apologise for being slightly skeptical, but either ATS is the Mecca of geniuses on this planet or people are exaggerating or giving inaccurate
figures. To put this into perspective, the highest IQ society(Giga, 1 in a billion is a joke) Mega society requires an IQ of 170, or 0.000001% of the
population can qualify, this means that in America, only 270 or so people would qualify. There are 4 people here who claim to have an IQ in this
range. I guess this is somewhat like asking for the size of manhood, everyone is going to add a inch or two
Sigma society requires an IQ of 165+ or 0.00001% of the population can qualify or 2700 people in America. There are 5 people who claim to have an IQ
in this range. The rest is as follows
(+/- 5 points)
175-180: 1 in 10 million: 2 mentions: 27 Americans
165-175: 1 in 1 million: 2 member: 270 Americans
155-165: 1 in 100,000: 3 members: 2,700 Americans
145-155: 1 in 10,000: 4 members: 27,000 Americans
135-145: 1 in 1000: 23 members: 270,000 Americans
I am providing a link to a few high ceiling IQ test:
Please, complete the tests in your spare time, it will give you a far more accurate IQ score. In the High IQ society one(the only one which will give
an instant result) the more accurate tests are the test for exceptional intelligence, Ultimate High IQ test and the 12 min test.
As for myself, I usually don't like IQ tests, because they give me a complex and confuse me. The first IQ test I did was when I was 16 and I scored
155. After that I took another test and I scored 100. I then took the National IQ test of UK and scored 135. I took some professional hard tests
online and scored 170. Then I took the International High IQ society tests and scored 135. If I summarize my scores from all the tests it would go
from one extreme to the other: 100, 116, 120, 135, 155, 160, 170. I'll average that and give my IQ as 136.
Now either I have a very erratic intelligence, or there is something fundamentally wrong with the IQ tests. Actually, the difference of 10 points can
usually just be answering 2 questions wrong. I fare better on verbal and visual-spatial. The math throws me off. I also do not like time limits.
However, when it comes to intelligence, I know I am very intelligent. And I'm often told this by everyone I encounter, but that is probably because I
speak lucid English and talk about highly abstract concepts.
As I grew up, I could not careless about school or intelligence. I was in the lowest class of my year. I actually did not realize I was in the lowest
class until the last year of secondary school. When I realized I was in the dumb group, I said to myself, "I'm not dumb, so why am I in the dumb
group" so basically I started paying attention to work, and in under a month, I was promoted by my school to the highest group. They said it was a
miracle and just phenomenal what I did. I knew better, if only they knew how to recognise potential in a student. However, I did not maintain this
pace, because I got bored too quickly.
In college in doing my A levels, in our first college test in Chemistry, I scored the highest score in the college 96%. I suddenly lost interest and
my scores nosedived to 50 to 30 to 20%. That is just how my mind is, I lose interest too quickly. Now, that I am out of college, I read my old
chemisty and physics books with renewed interests. They seem easy. If I wanted I could learn entire science books regardless of which level, in under
a week. However, I am not going to do that. I just can't commit myself to anything at this time. There is a lot going on in the world, a lot about to
happen and a lot of internal conflict in my own life, that it's difficult to focus for me.
However, I would really like to know what it is like to have a very High IQ such as 1000. I think you would see patterns in everything, in rain, in
clouds, in stars. You would probably be able to formulate an entire treatise on maths and astronomy in your mind. I really wish I could experience
