Interesting article. I have never had an IQ test; I get the impression they are thought to be pretty important in the US?

growing up I use to have an IQ test every year. one year, I scored two or three points higher, then Einstein on a test. My score was 165 on, I believe the test was test Orange. The one he got 200 on I Got only 189. also on any none standardize IQ test that score 155 or more is believe to none measurable.

I never put much stock in them. It always struck me as the height of reductionism to think that we can boil something as complex and as difficult to define as intelligence down to a single number. I bet in most cases the people who score high numbers happen to be adept at that type of cultural literacy.
