And when did you find out?

Mine fluctuates between 138 and 143*, depending on how tired I am. I first found out when my parents took me to a shrink when I was 6 or 7. I was a quiet kid, and they thought I was slow developing, only to discover the opposite. It kind-of gave me an ego, and I believe my schoolwork suffered because of it.

I remember taking a test back in middle school (7th grade maybe?) and getting something from 110-120. I have no idea what test it was or what part of the curve that score falls in, and I don't particularly care. I know my IQ is higher than my shoe size and that's all that really matters.

I had to take an IQ test in order to pass my senior year high school psychology class. I got a 175 and I think IQ tests are BS because of it. I personally think I scored higher than I should have.

I know it's a test of mental agility and not general knowledge, but I don't feel that smart.

First time I took an IQ test I scored a 138. On the second time a few years later I scored a 132.

Actually (and I think I've posted this before), the IQ test was originally only designed to test for mental retardation in children. While more recent IQ test standards have been created to test for mental acuity in adults, they're still to a large degree based off the original standards. I know that any number over 130 on an IQ test is complete horseshit, past 130 and all it means is that you're pretty smart. The numbers have no reliability past that mark.

I don't know and I don't really care.

My experience in life has taught me that you can be intelligent to the Nth degree, but if you lack social skills, ambition, and a sense of responsibility, people far "dumber" than you are likely to make you look stupid. Repeatedly.

And frankly, while I like to think that the average intelligence of this board's populace is higher than the you'll find on most web boards, and certainly higher than on most wrestling web boards, I don't imagine we have any Giga Society members amongst us and that we, as a group, probably still fit a pretty standard bell curve.

Why the need to whip it out and hold a ruler against it?

Sorry, I don't have one to whip out to measure. (If I've ever had an IQ test, nobody ever told me about it.)

However, all in the timing : I'm in California kitty sitting for friends who left this very morning for the Mensa Annual Gathering. And the 2 of them deign to talk to me, so I can't be that far back uphill on the bell curve. :-)
