Something that I don't have a lot of.
I'm not sure what an IQ is, but Momma said mine is really low. I think it has something to do with my leg braces. I miss Momma.

A bunch of nonsense fabricated by simpletons in an attempt to objectify a complex and subjective attribute known as intelligence. This measures the ability to perform simple mental tasks, which can be augmented by training and practice. IQ tests take no note of intuition and creativity, nor have any bearing on true intelligence. They have some relation to job success because only this simple minded interpretation is needed for repetitive and obedient tasks.
I have scored well over 140 on recognized IQ tests scored by 'certified psychologists' while half asleep, but don't give a shit. A truly intelligent person does not brag, but rather teaches, and realizes that a 'high IQ' means precisely dick, just as well as many other qualifications in modern society such as degrees, etc. Many feel intimidated by the real scope of intelligence thus they try to tame it and make it comprehensible on a 'normal' level rather than to truly develop it within themselves and increase the breadth of their perspective.

The number which rolls out of an IQ test, which measures how well you can take that test and throws out a number saying it's your IQ.

Intelligence Quotient:
(not quota, or quote, or even quilt)
*an intelligence quota, would be a limit on intelligence!!not a measure of it...!!!
Intelligence QUOTIENT(ratio, fractional value, non whole integer, etc...)
-The ratio generated by dividing your intellectual age by your actual age

-the stanford binet IQ test(the real-notOnlineVersion) was an adapted version of an older less acurate European test...

Also the results of the standard test are graphed a long a bell curve, so there is no IQ below 1 or above 200, 100 is by definition the average IQ
-thus the "average person" has an IQ of 100, not below or above, since this value is assigned based on the average score of those who have taken the test....

*Oh and this test is not generally used on adults though, since the general knowledge of 40 year old is pretty much the same as that of a 60 year old, making it usless for people over a certian age...
A certian (self proclaimed) president of this country, whose name rhymes with George W. Bush, has an IQ on high functional side of mental retardation, around 60 or 70, and probably thinks its called an Intelligent Quota...

It's a psychological concept used to approximate someone's psychometric intelligence, which has been shown to be useful in predicting job Performance and various measures of academic success. The popular, but ancient, method of calculating IQ, or intelligence quotient, was to divide someone's mental age by their actual chronological age. Contemporary methods involve plotting one's relative score on a distribution score, derived from a norming group which is usually stratified by chronological age, which allows individuals of all ages to have their IQ's evaluated.

It's tended to be used as a conversational last resort, which is more typical among those with a IQ worth mentioning, or in some cases, rights to brag. Those mentioning an IQ above 140 are usually easily identified as the classical Braggart; Less then .4% of the population are able to earn an IQ this high on commonly accepted IQ tests.

Also, Communication difficulties and other academic or learning problems doesn't mean that someone MUST HAVE A low IQ, Albert Einstein being the common example. I happen to be another.
My IQ is 145, or at least that's what the graduate psychometrist told me. No really. I'm not making this up. Despite my admonition in the definition, I, this definition's writer, have an IQ above 140.

Like anyone cares though. Haha.

I'm pretty sure that's going to earn a couple of thumbsdown.
