1. Over 90 percent of serial killers are male.

2. They tend to be intelligent, with IQ's in the "bright normal" range.

3. They do poorly in school, have trouble holding down jobs, and often work as unskilled laborers.

4. They tend to come from markedly unstable families.

5. As children, they are abandoned by their fathers and raised by domineering mothers.

6. Their families often have criminal, psychiatric and alcoholic histories.

7. They hate their fathers and mothers.

9. Many serial killers spend time in institutions as children and have records of early psychiatric problems.

10. They have high rates of suicide attempts.

14. They are involved with sadistic activity or tormenting small creatures.

I love the use of "many" in the OP.

I'm male, I'm intelligent, I like BD/SM. Nothing else fits me I think. But as Moscaespanol will point out I "didn't read op lol".

I do not however give a rats ass about IQ. It means close to nothing to me whatsoever. That's quite far from what I would define a measurement regarding intelligence. Or at least, the kind of intelligence that I value.

lol male with high IQ, everyone will say that

I said no because I haven't done a proper IQ test before, so I dunno.

I got 9 but really profiling serial killers has been romanticised so much in media that it seems like a sure shot when in reality not only do profilers get it wrong quite often many aren't convinced it even works at all.

So you don't give a rat's ass about a test that measures reasoning ability?

Different tests have varying results and plenty that you find online are stupid, but they do tend to correspond to a "Type of Intelligence" that most people find important.

What kind of intelligence do you value?

Social interaction. How to behave in a social forum and context. Reasoning abilities can be developed in a social context. Social behaviour can not be developed in a logical system of seeing things. As social behaviour is only logical when you know how people behave. If you have not grasped social behaviour you can't even tell if a behaviour is logical or not.

I've never been even close to good at maths or the direct logical way of the IQ. I've however always been a rather intelligent human being when it comes to questioning social behaviour and social moral/tradition. I value the latter higher.

I don't think it matters however many of those you exhibit. I'm pretty sure the actual requirement is that you have murdered several people.

Maybe you'd be better off taking the "Are You A Master Sleuth" test, since you seem to possess unparalleled powers of observation, my dear boy.

I'll keep that in mind. You've really inspired me to take on a new direction and escape the powerful grip of depression. If you say I'm qualified, then I know I can do it. Thank you for my new found purpose in life!
