Re: Don't know what the reults mean.............

You people men will compete on any field of play!
Height, weight, IQ, credit card offers, investment returns...what else? Now GRE and SAT scores! What's left? How early you got potty trained?
Just kidding!

Below average on:

Height
Potty training
Credit card offers
Golf scores

Above average on:

Weight
IQ
Credit lines
Net worth
Income
GRE scores
GMAT scores
SAT scores

What else? Well, I thought of something but it would bring this thread down a level.

The real IQ level should be judged by who made it through the end without getting spamed!

I prefer to measure IQ by your success at controlling the economic environment in which you reside to the extent you no longer have to toil for "the man." What's the point of having exceptional "numbers" if you still spend your life hitched to the plow?

hey Justin, you and me tied.

(ok, I guess I should at least respect grammar in a post about the SAT: "you and I tied" ... well, I got higher on math than on verbal, anyway )

Re: Don't know what the reults mean.............



Hmmmm.. can remember but SAT in the mid 1300s.. but back when it was harder to get a good score.. (my neice got 1590.. got 800 on each section, but not at the same time)..

GRE.. first time 710, second 730 I believe..

IQ.. measure at 155 or 160.. not sure... took a Mensa test once and passed.. but do not know if it was an 'official' test or just a practice one...

Golf.. best score 89.. but it would not pass the rules... probably would be in the 110 range right now..

Bowling score... about 190 average

Manhood.. 'average'.. but it is enough for my GF (or she is nice and lies)..

Re: Don't know what the reults mean.............

Is testosterone required? How about just a little?

Height--5'5" and sinking
Weight--much too much, and I will have to confess it when we fly bush planes on safari next summer
SATs--Math was 776 (a memorable number), verbal was 760something or 780something, so ~1540-60
IQ--variously 142-150. I'm sure it's lower now (age? menopause? Lyme Disease? poor circulation? indulging my inner doofus?) Anyway, my effective IQ seems less coz my brain is apparently geared toward snarky comments, crossword puzzles, and Sudoku rather than anything useful :
NW--counting the house according to Zillow, $1.9M for DH & me. But I don't count the house since I'm planning to convert it into Senior Housing at some point. Still, hitting $2M will be satisfying and probably remove a touch of worry about minor details like health care.

LATE ADDITIONS
Golf...I've never played. But I often beat others at miniature golf
Bowling...haven't played in years, used to score in the low hundreds
Potty traiing--my mother claims to have trained us at age 12 months. That could explain a lot...

Re: Don't know what the reults mean.............

I remember the SAT scoring "system" changing at some point in the past, so my score from 1971 might actually be higher!! Or is it lower... :P

Whatever, Harvard wasn't clamoring for my attendance...

Justin, we even got the same division of scores. It's too bad neither one of us is a chick!

So can I call myself a Visionary Philosopher too?
