I am curious . I took an Iq test years ago, and scored a 154. I was probably about 22 then. Well I just took the test again, and now I scored a 125.
As we get older, is this is sign of the deteriorating brain? 125 is still good, but shows my mind is not as sharp as it used to be.
IQ tests are a bit subjective, and some are considered better than
others by dealing with abstracts vs. rote learning by knowing
What can happen as we get older is we do not keep going with
higher education to higher and higher levels.
So we do not chase the intellectual dragon so to speak.
We stop and we take up a repetitive job doing something over and
over to pay the bills, feed the kids, and so on.
I personal think you still have the capacity to learn more and
are still as intelligent as you were then, just that they feel you
should keep up with the joneses so to speak.
