According to Donald Trump he has one of the highest IQs. Wait, what?

How does one research another persons I.Q. without actually having any data? LMAO. More delusional Trumpers. You say his I.Q. is 148. Well I did some research on you by reading your posts and I would estimate that your I.Q. is around 53.

In the field of psychology, the Dunning–Kruger effect is a cognitive bias wherein

people of low ability suffer from illusory superiority, mistakenly assessing their cognitive ability as greater than it is.

The cognitive bias of illusory superiority derives from the metacognitive inability of low-ability persons to recognize their own ineptitude.

Without the self-awareness of metacognition, low-ability people cannot objectively evaluate their actual competence or incompetence.[1]


This sums it up.

People with high IQs tend to be humble and not narcissistic.

He must be a pretty sharp guy judging by where he is now and what he's done with his life.
Stupid people do not rise to such positions by sheer dumb luck.
Trump is not an idiot by any stretch of the imagination.

Smart people know that cunning and intelligence are not the same thing.
Just sayin', eh?

No offense, but you have clearly never worked at a University! LOL!
OK...that could come off as sounding snotty, so to clarify, I spent over 25 years working in the trades at major university and I can attest to the fact that they can incubate some of the most arrogant arseholes imaginable.

by my calculations, his IQ is about 148.


I like your calculations. By those standards, I am Dr Manhattan


Joker!


What is yours out of interest? I've mostly averaged about 136.

The last time I was properly tested was around 25 years ago, Since then I got married, divorced, smoked a field of tobacco and drank a lake of alcohol. I imagine it has decreased to approximately that of a eggplant.
I know I am not processing as fast as I used to. I have been trying to learn Japanese for over a year (as a side hobby) and I can speak it now like a severely retarded toddler. Back in my prime I would have at least been at elementry school level...so I am not getting it tested anytime soon out of pride.

I am now however working in a field that tests my brain daily, and with some suppliments, I imagine it will be on the rise again so down the line I may retest myself.. Keeping the brain fit is important, especially as years start adding up.

Trump can't be that smart if he's constantly saying things that make him look foolish. It's funny how trump supporters scramble to defend every spontaneous thing that comes out of trumps mouth. I'm not sure how people still see him as this anti-establishment hero. Maybe it's the bias news they read.

I think he is probably average at best. He was sent to military school by his parents for his behavior. He completed a 2 year degree and the records sealed, and he would not disclose them. He did not have honors however. So he was decidedly average or below in school.

The way he speaks at any rate does not denote intelligence. He honestly sounds like a buffoon at times. The mere fact he feels the need to tout his intelligence repeatedly makes one wonder why - someone who truly was that intelligent wouldn't feel the need to brag about it.

I think a decent vocabulary is a sign of intelligence, so.....average at best perhaps? I think he is savvy in the business department and a good smoosher, but high IQ not too sure. Judging by the conversations I have seen over the years, I'm sticking with average at best.

I feel ya. Great to have you around, dex! Let me channel the pit for a second to deliver on MOAR crazy explanations... oh yeah. There it is:

It's all Antifas fault! They pushed him into this mindset with their socialism. He's just about to present us with the competitive part of capitalism for advertisement purposes. Sitting President of THE capitalist country, right? Who do you think would be suited best to make a literal stand for the concept? The sitting imbecile, ex-fcking-actly. Go ExxonMobile! It will cost Tillerson quite the sum but since Trump doesn't have a conscience at all, this is just another great deal on the road to MAGAland.

I'm just wondering if he already had someone measure his head, it'd be a shame not to scrutinize all the eugenics involved with this Übermensch. Perfect aryan skullshape! Frankly, I wanna touch it all the time. Way better than some magic crystal somewhere on the Saudi Arabian peninsula, it's a living orange!

I'd like to start a project with you and was thinking about a series of the "invisible" (at least for me, the public) military encounters. Zaphod inspired me to do this, the other day. He mentioned a Mig flyby over a carrier, shadowed by an US plane with a weapons officer in a Gorilla mask.
#TopGunzilla

And then there is this crazy story with a Chinese pilot going inverted and overhead of another US plane in the Chinese Sea, probably to exchange some middle fingers via cockpit windows.
#YellowSeaPants

Someone has to start working on this stuff and I'm behind schedule on my other 2 projects already. Guess you'd have quite a few funny ideas for that as well. Anyway. Wont mind if you say "no, thx" to that and come up with another plan instead. All the best to you, my CAV ATS comrade!

His IQ is about Bush's which was mid 90's. Trump is below average. He uses vocabulary at about a 4th grade level. He won't take the MENSA test because he knows the results would humiliate him.

He secretly hangs out with Trudeau every Sunday afternoon behind the grain silos on grandpappy Trudeau's farm here in the prairies.

If you stand outside long enough, you'll get a waft of it up your nose.

Sheldon? Asperger's I could deal with! Those newly-minted MAs and PhD's who demanded we peons hurry and do their bidding "toot sweet"...they'd get a lesson in me fulfilling the parametres of my job description. The smart ones caught on...but I digress.
Sure...Trump has yuuuge IQs. Why not.
