IQ Tests

I was talking to this dude I know.
And he insisted that IQ tests are a worthy measure of intelligence. And that the only people who think they're arbitrary are those with low scores. This was after I said that I didn't really think they were worth anything.
He asked me what my score was...
I've never taken one.
He told me to go to http://www.iqtest.com and take their test...
That it was very close to the actual ones he has taken and it was a very decent, quick test.
I still think the tests are arbitrary.
and it's not because I got a low score.
Not as high as his high holy commisoner of the Brains (who thinks people should have their IQs tattooed on their foreheads so that you can decide right away who you do and don't want to have anything to do with) , but high enough that, were it an actual, sound, NON INTERNET test (and maybe on a site that isn't trying to sell you IQ enhancing programs and wants you to buy the wall certificate for $9.95), Andres would certainly have to take what I had to say seriously on the basis of those digits on my foreheads.

Oh, and friend took it too.
He scored eleven points higher than me... But I always knew there had to be some quantifiable method of showing how gaddamned much he rocked.
too bad it's in a very arbitrary lil test.
I do like the general theory questions.. the spatial observations.. the cognitive thinking.. quick problem solving.
That just means I think I on my toes... not that I'm necessarily any more or less intelligent than anyone else.

I dunno.
a sheet of paper with a number on it really doesn't mean a whole hell of a lot when it comes to living day to day.

    I think I need to remember to keep the LJ open in the background. Download another client for it and actually run the thing. Maybe that will increase…
