I was looking over the IQ threads and I found them quite interesting. But something I've always wondered is how are ICQ tests sufficient? They measure how intelligent you are? Dictionary.com defines intelligence as: The capacity to acquire and apply knowledge. ICQ tests ask you a various assortment of questions based on different categories. In reality doesnt the test just tell you how much information you know. When in reality it wouldnt be testing your intelligence at all. For example it asks you to solve a math problem? But maybe your an English major. Who is to say if taught you couldn't easily acquire the abilities to solve the problem if you were taught? Also when I was younger I got a 139 on an online test. The most recent one I took was probably I year ago I got 109. I'm going on 16 in April so my age problem lowers my ability to get accurate results I'm guessing? I suppose I'm being a bit obsessive. Probably because I use my intelligence and wisdom as a method to increase my ego to survive the brutal High School world. Its working for me. Anyway thanks to those who respond. Also for those curtious people who try and explain it in simpliar words its fine. I'd rather have difficulty grasping whatever concept you are explaining and learn something than not learn something at all because it was made easier for me.
