im in a fast track course for english and my class is full of people that are genuinely not that dumb, some of them actually being pretty mature, down to earth and intelligent.
it's really awful, usually you can just assume everyone is kind of dumb and kind of disregard them but not there mang, its scary

so idk, discuss

I really need to get used to this. Spent too much time in crappy dive bars and jobs that are beneath me lately. I'm not going to make my way to the upper crust like this!

it's an english class so we're made to read texts and books and discuss in groups and shit and then write papers with our conclusions and all that awful stuff

I went from a unexceptional secondary school where I was top of the year in maths and science to a sixth-form college where the majority were heading to oxbridge, while the rest to whichever uni ranked highest for their subject. Plus there were a few mensa members around.

It was weird not being the smartest around for once. Despite that, outside of lessons, people still acted and talked like idiots but I guess that's a part of being young.

This was sophomore year for me. Joined Academic Team, took a bunch of AP classes, made friends with people with common interests besides video games.

Mensa isn't that hard to get into.

Well I mean I couldn't do it, but I admittedly have terrible logic skills.



I remember trying some kind of sample test back in college and I came just short of the required IQ and my mensa mate was like 'save your money man, the real test is harder'

How do you define "act smart". I had this classmate that got the top score of our stupid unnecessary college IQ test and he's pretty ****ing normal to me. Do you mean nerds?
Quote by Dave Mustaine
If you want to be treated intelligently, act intelligent.

#23
That must be heaven. Most of my classes (AP/college level or Honors) have at least a 10% annoying, immature, idiotic rate. Now, AP and Honors classes aren't a reflection of any kind of intelligence superior to basic level classes, its only how hard you work in those classes that count. But even when it's expected that mature, semi-smart, somewhat talented students are to be taking these classes, still the system has failed in the regard of weeding out the idiots and immature kids that just don't belong there.

The real test is really 2 tests and take about 3 hours.
Well, rather, you get 3 hours to complete them.

yay, I guess my memory sucks as well as being stuck with a measly ~90th percentile IQ.

I just found out you can submit any IQ test result instead of doing a mensa test, as long as it's certified by someone mensa trust.

what do you get out of being a member? I only remember my friend saying he got a magazine subscription and the bragging rights.

Are there no dumb people at all? That would be a miracle. I'm taking senior level Mathematics undergraduate courses and we still have one really dumb guy. But its mostly just the one, everyone else is intelligent. I hate that one guy though. No idea how he's gotten into this class because every time he opens his mouth its clear he has no idea whats going on, and he never turns work in.

There's this one girl on my course...


...she looked at a picture of Lord Kitchener, and asked if that was Hitler.

I said "No...?!"

She said "Oh. I thought he was because he has a moustache."

Me: "...wut."

Her: "I got an A in History."


Yeah...

just because you take history and get an A doesn't mean you know all of history, you probably just know the limited area that was covered. It doesn't even mean you remember anything, because passing a test and retaining the knowledge long term are two different things.

You guys, pretty sure he isn't referring to knowing a lot of facts or having high IQ. The intelligence I care about at least is being able to think about stuff fairly and rationally and being able to have a decent discussion about it.

moustache without a beard, come on what is this, 2011? might as well be hitler for the fashion faux pas you're committing.


oh and totally agree bob. would take someone I can have a reasonable discussion with any day over a person who is intelligent on paper but irrational in speech or a person who constantly displays their knowledge in an overly pretentious or dull way.

The man with the highest IQ in the world is a random uneducated farmer in the south USA iirc. Upon discovering he had such a high IQ, he decided to come up with his own nut job explanation for the existence of the universe. IQ is only one type of intelligence, and a high one typically comes at the expense of other equally (if not more) important forms of intelligence.

Most of the people I know at uni are fairly intelligent with a few notable exceptions.

However, I don't know anyone who thinks I'm intelligent :/ just because I like makeup and I said something ONCE about wanting to buy a private island and go to the beach every day for the rest of my life (which does not preclude intelligence in any way)

So now I feel like I have to prove myself or something even though I really don't need to lol.
