I have seen a ton of these IQ threads on PerC, and it seems like I'm the only one (or one of very few) who is below 100. I wonder why that is
I get so nervous taking the 'what is the next figure'-kind of question. For I can come up with more than 1 line of reasoning. And there is no way to know what the right one is according to the test. Well, on the other hand, in reality that is also the case. No way of knowing how people will see the next stap to be taken, and why. Even if they tell you, it is a socially corrected version.I'll try to not step on anyones toes here, and maybe this is a coincidence, but those of my friends that is 'smart' (that also includes social, remembering of facts, general problemsolving and easy grasping of concepts) has scored high on the test. But then again, who am I to define 'smart'. Some of them is N, and some is S, all though I would say that N's have a "read between the lines" way of thinking and creativity beyond any of my S friends.
I reckon S would be greater at facts.
Also, I scored 130.
I took an IQ test, too, but they made me give it back. /thread necro>I took an IQ test, and I thought it'd be cool if you guys could take it too and we can see if there's some sort of pattern or similarity in INFPs' IQ levels. Click here for the IQ test!
I got a 134 for the IQ test. These are what the test scores mean:
Intelligence Interval Cognitive Designation
40 - 54 Severely challenged (Less than 1% of test takers)
55 - 69 Challenged (2.3% of test takers)
70 - 84 Below average
85 - 114 Average (68% of test takers)
115 - 129 Above average
130 - 144 Gifted (2.3% of test takers)
145 - 159 Genius (Less than 1% of test takers)
160 - 175 Extraordinary genius
So I think it's been said a lot that INFPs (or N types in general) are usually quite intelligent.
Personally, in secondary school my form teacher and friends always said that I was the type of student who "doesn't need to study and can still get an A". I don't think I'm THAT lazy, but I definitely think I'm quite disorganised when it comes to studying - it can be quite susceptible to my mood as well - and I definitely am not as hardworking as a lot of people around me. I was fourth in my secondary school for the national exams (to be fair, it wasn't a prestigious school) and right now in junior college (the mad 'A' levels) I'm coping fairly well, except in Mathematics. (I've been failing consistently, ha ha ha.)
So I was just wondering if the INFPs out there are similar to me. Do you find that you can still cope okay without working extra hard?
And if there was a test to measure creativity (which is of course difficult to define), INFPs would on average score highest on it. I can't think of any other type that would generally outdo INFPs on creativity.Intrapersonal
This area has to do with introspective and self-reflective capacities. This refers to having a deep understanding of the self; what one's strengths/ weaknesses are, what makes one unique, being able to predict one's own reactions/emotions.
Question is what kind of creativity .I can't think of any other type that would generally outdo INFPs on creativity.
