They wouldn't score very high on an IQ test because IQ tests measure the ability to recall knowledge not the ability to do things with knowledge. The difference between education and intelligence, so keeping that in mind they have problems with the symbols representing our math and syntax of our languages. Even a picture of a simple pulley system might be probleematic if they do not have drawings or symbolist art in their culture.

Not that any of that makes them less intelligent, just a problem to determine intelligence. Then again, we might be thought of as very simple due to written, verbal, gestures and pictures for communicating ideas instead of implanting ideas via empathy, pheromones or telepathy.

Maybe it is not that they are intelligent. At least in the case of the greys they seem to be robots, meant to do some very specific tasks. Maybe it is that they are equipped with some kind of scanner mechanism that allows them to take control and read our minds. Maybe it has nothing to do with intelligence at all, and they could only be some type of mobile device that relays info to their bosses.

Great question to consider. I've given some thought to it in the past, but it is rather difficult to reason when some Aliens may be millions of years more advanced than we are. These beings are the equivalent to "gods," and we are "a very dangerous species."

They claim earth is 4.5 to 4.6 billion year old.That would mean other planets out there could be billons of years older.that could mean they are billions of years more advanced then us.Its mind blowing.

i believe we cant test them for an iq test since they possess an incredible amout of knowledge and botherway in order to have telepathy you must learned it or practice it wich make it a part of knowledge
