Hi everyone, This is something that's been bothering me for a while, and I realize this isn't a self-help forum, but I was hoping I'd be able to elicit some intelligent responses on the matter. I've been a pretty great student all my life, maintaining a 3.7 GPA throughout high school, and currently maintaing a 3.8 in college. I also test fairly well on standardized tests. I received a 33 on the ACT and a 2060 on the SAT. Additionally, my friends will constantly remark how smart they think I am(I'm not tooting my own horn here, I'm just trying to make a point). Anyways, last Summer, I went to see a phycologist to be reevaluated for receiving extended time on assessments(I have Dyslexia), as I hadn't been evaluated in a while, and the college of my choice requested I do this if I wanted to get extra time. So, I took a series of tests(one of which happened to be an IQ test), had a discussion with the phycologist about the results(not specific scores but general areas of weaknesses and strengths), and then left with a humongous packet. I took the packet home with me and decided to take a closer look, just out of curiosity. Flipping through, I finally came to a page that said at the top of it "Wechsler Adult Intelligence Test." So, I thought to myself, "Wow...I had no idea they were going to test my IQ...I wonder how I did..." I Skimmed the subtests and got down to the final score: a measly 115. I was highly disappointed, to understate things. Not only that, but I scored higher on the verbal portion--VCI(122)--than on the one that's apparently related to math--PRI(113). This came as a surprise to me because I've always been MUCH better at Math than English. However, looking at the subtests for the PRI, I was able to remember the tests and the instructions I was given, some of which, suffice to say, were pretty misleading. For example, for the test where you're supposed to arrange red and white blocks into particular patterns, I was told that I had as much time as I wanted, and that I should be in no rush to finish. Though, after completing a decent amount of different patterns--I got a little bit stuck on the last one, but not completely so--the lady took away the blocks and said, "We're done with that for now." Turns out I got an 11 on that subtest, which is 1 point above average. Although, how could this be? I completed all the patterns I was asked to complete. Was this subtest time-related and I was mislead? Anyways, that was among one of the few inconsistencies I noticed; however, I'm not going to sit here and blame the psychologist for an inaccurate score, as they've probably given the same directions other test subjects with effectiveness. I may seem like an egotistical jerk for saying this, but I really think my IQ is higher than "High Average." Any suggestions for improving or ways of enlightening the situation? Please be considerate. Thanks.
