Reliable IQ test online? I don't know if I would call them reliable or not, but there are a bunch of free ones you can take.
JUST BING IT!
That link will get you started. Take 4 or 5 of them and see where the scores average out at.
Doc was right when he said you're just like everyone else. We all go through the same thing. Except for the whole furry ordeal, your post sounds a
lot like myself.
Your mind running rampant across various fields of thought non-stop. Constantly thinking and processing information that really has no connection from
one to the next.
Ask someone what they're thinking about and the answer is usually "Nothing." Which is usually correct because they're thinking about something
that it insignificant to anyone but themselves.
When someone asked me "What are you thinking about?"
My answer is always "Nothing." Because none of the people in my everyday world could even slightly comprehend what it is I am thinking about. It
could anything from trying to create a formula that would allow me to accurately guesstimate how much the entire Great Wall of China weighs (within a
few .lbs). I could be thinking about the compression ratio, torque, horse power, and power to weight ration of the V12 Vanquish compared to a Shelby
SuperSnake Mustang. OR, I could be day dreaming about being the POTUS.
Whatever it is, my answer is always nothing, because it's easier than trying to explain to someone What you're thinking about, Why you're thinking
about it and HOW you started thinking about it. Which always ends up with them giving you a weird look. In my house anyways.
When I was your age, I'm 33 now, my grades in school were dreadful. Not because I couldn't do the classwork, but because it bored me. I visualize
formulas, I imagine in mathematics and I think in 3D. It was hard for me to sit in class and be surrounded by people that couldn't think as fast or
as indepth as I did. Not trying to too my own horn or anything like that. But I always felt like everyone else processed life at a much slower pace
than I could.
Maybe it was just me being a normal teenager. I doubt it, but it's possible.
Anyway, I always felt out of place, like you mentioned. Then one day a teacher told me that they were going to transfer me to a new program. They
called it ACI. Accelerated Course Instruction.
Due to my lack of enthusiasm for schoolwork during my 9th, 10th, and 11th grade years; I started my Senior year with 0 school credits. I failed every
single class, every six weeks, every year during high school. I started my Senior year with the same amount of credits that I started my Freshman year
In order for me to graduate high school on schedule, I had to take all 4 years of high school in 1 year. Which is why they transferred me to the new
ACI program. ACI was structured in a way that allowed the student to work on any subject at their own pace instead of working at the typical
classroom rate. Basicly, they had an entire school years worth of subject matter condensed down into a smaller book. Once you go through the book you
take the Final exam. Pass the test, pass the class. Anyway this is getting off subject. Long story short, we started school in August and by
Christmas break in late-December I had completed all 4 years of high school requirements. Damn that was drawn out longer than what I thought it
Okay, here's my point ... There's nothing wrong with you. You just have to find a way to work things out at your pace. Don't fight yourself over
the amount of information that you're always thinking about. Expand on it. I always have this deep seated unquenchable need to learn something.
ANYTHING, just something. I don't know if you're like that or not. Don't let your overactive thought process make you feel like an outsider or
different than anyone else.
A lot of people kill it. They don't want it, so they strangle it until it goes away. A lot of people have never had it. Use it to your advantage and
fill your mind with any and all information that you're curious about.
BTW, I asked about the IQ test because my school administered one to me before they decided to move me to the ACI Program. I tested at 186. You ever
heard the saying "There's a fine line between genius and insanity." ?
