lol...yea they do ...i'm new too and now i've found myself eyeball deep in the newest ATS game... for a little while people thought i was involved
since i was new!
anyways... back to the IQ topic
to answer the question about the 40 yr old and 12 yr old question
it makes neither one dumber or smarter than the other.. as i said in my previous post its a measure of the speed and ability to process information..
most of the questions on that test could be answered by a 3rd grader probably
it would just mean you process the information at the same speed and ability... or perhaps one of you has more ability and less speed, or the
Edit: for an example, when i was in 8th grade, my dad, my grandfather, and myself all took the same IQ test. i ended up scoring the highest. just
for a little comparison... my dad is a mechanical engineer and runs the branch office of a company here, and my grandfather was majorly responsible
for the establishment of non-military radar schools for maritime.
so as you can see neither of them are stupid in that way, and yet i scored higher than them in 8th grade. (not meant to be a bragging post, just
trying to give an example of how the IQ test can be skewed)
