If a teacher walked into the classroom and said "If only yesterday was tomorrow, today would have been Saturday" then the day would have to be Monday. The day before Monday is Sunday, and if Sunday were the next day, the current day would be Saturday.
Although Professor Hawking discounts the value of numerical IQ's, he admitted that his own is likely very high (it has been suggested as 160 or more). He also said that "People who boast about their IQ's are losers". (see link to 2004 interview)
---a possibly dramatized anecdote from Introducing Stephen Hawking (2006)---
Near the end of his term at Oxford and no doubt beginning to feel the effects of ALS, Hawking took a terrible fall down a staircase in the university hall. As a result, he temporarily lost his memory. He could not even remember his name. After several hours of interrogation by his friends, he finally returned to normal but was worried about possible permanent brain damage. To be sure, he decided to take the Mensa test for individuals with superior intelligence. He was delighted to find that he passed with flying colours, scoring between 200 and 250!

WAIS-IV stands for Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale-4th Edition. It a clinician administered test--i.e. it cannot be taken online. The test is only sold to clinicians--licensed psychologists--who are trained to use it. You need to see a psychologist to get it done. Sometimes you can get a free assessment at a university clinic with a Ph.D. program in clinical psychology. However, if you walk in and simply request an IQ test, your request might be declined, just like you might be refused and MRI if you walked into a neurologist's office and asked for one. More often than not, the psychologist will inquire as to why you want the test. In fact, it would probably be a violation of professional ethics to not discuss your history and presenting problems before tests are given.
The fact is that neither gender is any more intellectually gifted than the other. It is true that females perform better at some tasks than males. The reverse is also true. Let's face it there are differences. That's biology, that's genetics, that is the reality of the differences between boys and girls, folks.
There is no debate here. There is no argument. For every male that anyone can drag up from history as a representative of the most intelligent, there is a female who can be found to match him.
Eleanor Maccoby and Carol Jacklin were two Psychologists who did extensive research into differences between the genders. The only differences that stood up to rigorous empirical testing is that, in general, females have greater facility with languages and males have greater visual/spacial ability.
In terms of intelligence there is no statistical difference between the genders, aside from in the specific areas previously mentioned.
It all depends on the individual. I don't think it's a matter of men being smarter than women or vice versa. I think it's still a men's world and they want to keep it that way. So, no matter how smart women may be it will never be equal in this world for women.
IQ is graded according to one's age and an 'average' person will have an !Q of 100..... this means that they score 100% of what their age would score.
Psychologists and neuropsychologists give IQ tests as part of the battery of tests they have you do. There are also places like Mensa that administer tests.
But there's not really much of a reason for someone to have an IQ test. It doesn't mean much on its own and is pretty much useless in any day-to-day situation.
A way of doing this would be:
1 + 8 = 9;
3 * 6 = 18
18 + 6 = 24
1+8=9; sqrt(9)=3; 3*6+6=24
Another solution can be:
161 means you are a genius I am 11 my IQ is 138
I thinl its 15,990,90
a surface is made up of lines...a line is made up of points. :)

IQ scores have no set limit. The known regions of intelligence have reached 220, but there is no data for dramatically low scores. The base average however, is intended to be 100.
Everything above 100 is "above average", but in your case, your score is verry, verry high. The actual father of the test, Einstein, just scored as low as 129 ( and that's actually high as well), and later was discided that everyone who scores higher that him would be refered to as : gifted.
Also please note that 135 is actually extremely good, and this only is your IQ score if you did the right test. The internet IQ-tests are bad since you can easely do the worng test. In that way, your IQ may be 15 points lower, giving you a total of 120 (stil verry high).
If you realy did the test in the right way, it also means you can have like autism. Being brilliant brings the chance to those "handicaps".
And as a last note: Your IQ makes an ballance with your EQ (linked to social capabilities). This means that if you have an high IQ, you'll proppably have an low EQ and vice versa.
Chronological age is the years you have been alive and health age is the physical age your body is. If you are obese and not in shape for instance or if you smoke a lot, your health age is probably a lot older then your chronological age.
First, have you gotten enough sleep? Lack of sleep is the Number One reason that human beings make mistakes when trying to concentrate or focus on activities or studies! Kids and teenagers need between 10 to 12 hours of sleep in one night to recharge their bodies and stay healthy - adults need 6-8 hours. If you're not getting enough sleep, it's time to decide what you need to cut out of your busy life so that you can be more healthy!
Next, make sure you start the day with a decent breakfastthat will provide fuel for your brain during the day. This means healthy food, not junk food full of sugar and caffeine - those will burn off in about an hour, leaving you even more tired and hungry than you were to start! Even if you do eat later in the day, missing this first meal sets up a train of events in the body that is hard to recover from. Learn about low GI eating habits which provide your body with fuel for the longest possible time and provide you with a consistent level of blood sugars. Symptoms such as trouble concentrating, feeling tired, and "zoning out" are typical of low blood sugar levels (NOTE: if you continue to have these problems even after eating a healthy mean, or if you have symptoms like excessive thirst or frequent urination, you need to see a doctor to check for diabetes!).
Some Specific Tips from Our Contributors
The first thing you need to do to improve your concentration and mental focus is to want to improve. Having a desire to concentrate more will improve your ability to do it. Here are some more tips for increasing concentration.
These are few ways which you can look upon to improve your concentration :
1. DO FIVE MORE :here are two kinds of people -- those who have learned how to work through frustration, and those who wish they had. From now on, if you're in the middle of a task and tempted to give up -- just do FIVE MORE.
2. ONE THINK AT A TIME
"If I look confused, it's because I'm thinking."
-- make your mind a deal it can't refuse.
Write them down on your to-do list so you're free to forget them.
Don't feel like concentrating? Are you putting off a task or project you're supposed to be working on? That's a form of procrastination. "
Different people have different ways of concentrating. Some like to listen to music while they work and others like silence. I suggest you find a quiet corner with good lighting and no distractions. Try not to let your mind wander beyond your work, because chances are, your imagination will take over. In your new "working corner" make a comfortable spot for yourself with pillows and blankets. You may even want to buy a beanbag or comfy chair. You can also sit at a table so you can lay all your things out and have a hard surface to work on. Another suggestion is going to a quiet coffee/donut shop and finding a nice table. You can even hunker down with some food/drink. It helps me to have something to munch on or sip while I work.
They concentration such as some people like to be in a room that is completely silent, some people cannot work without a noise in the background but overall if you have the TV or radio on make sure your back is the TV so you cannot watch it and try and listen to music without lyrics. And lastly sucking sweets or chewing gum has been proven to increase concentration, some times you may even be allowed to have sweets and gum in a test to help with the concentration. Don't ask me how but chewing and sucking helps the brain concentrate, as long as you are not distracting anyone else around you.
Choose a quiet room with no distractions. Create a task list and break it down into smaller parts. Focus on the tasks that are more difficult or giving you problems. Excersise your mind by doing other activities such as drawing. Challange your mind by meditating.
He has not released that information; it should be noted that few presidents have made such scores public.
From the information that is available, we know (or can surmise) the following:
Note: To many professionals in the 'IQ' field , this discussion is utterly absurd. We have no idea what Barack Obama's IQ is, but nobody with even a rudimentary understanding of what IQ means and how it is determined would suggest that any of the estimations methods (school grades and positions held at college) described in the answer have any validity whatsoever.
It's above average at any rate.
Requisites of a Good Average
Sadly, it is commonly perceived that people with Autism are not intelligent. This is in fact, not the case and I believe it is our job as Autism advocates to raise awareness about the fact that individuals with Autism can be productive members of society.
At a recent conference I attended on work opportunities for adults on the Autism Spectrum, world renowned Autism expert, Susan Bryson, noted that only approximately 25% of people with Autism have an intellectual handicap. She then continued to point out that many people on the Autism Spectrum possess valuable cognitive strengths including
All of these attributes can make people with Autism extremely valuable employees so we all as a society have to start rethinking what it means to have Autism!
For more information on Autism, check out autism beacon.com, your one-stop-source for everything related to Autism.
------------------------------- It depends on whether the individual person has been educated on what autism is. Sadly, much of society, and even some individuals who may work with autistics, still can't tell the difference between "Asperger's/HFA" vs. "Kanner's". Along with all of the other disabilities where autism can also be effected. It also depends on where people get their information on autism from, and based on how accurate it is, along with updated. I truly think that the media in all forms are causing many complications for all of us to be accepted into society.
Persons recording high scores on standardized IQ tests are generally those who find learning new things comparatively easy, sometimes trivially easy.
IQ tests also work on measuring how fast someone thinks and their memorization, something that is dependent on how natural it is, and how the individual's brain functions have developed. These things cannot be studied directly. Since some individuals can learn more quickly and easily, an IQ test is one way to determine how quickly and efficiently their brains work.NoThere are a number of sociological problems that are thrown up by IQ testing. The main problem being with language - if English is not your first language or you're just no good at it, tests in English will yield a lower score.
IQ tests also only test certain thinking processes associated with intelligence, and individuals have different mental strengths and weaknesses. A low score on an IQ test does not specifically mean you are "less intelligent". For instance, a person who is highly intelligent in a non-academic field, for instance interpersonal communications or automotive maintenance, may score poorly on an IQ test because the test is based solely on performance in traditional academic subjects.
Scores on an IQ test are comparative by nature; they do not test a subject's 'true intelligence', merely their performance on the given tasks in comparison to those of the same age group. Test scores can also be affected by simple things such as a lack of sleep, or having not eaten enough that morning. IQ tests also fail to assess creativity levels.
It should also be noted that IQ test scores can vary, depending on the exact test that is taken.Well...
I'm assuming you're referring to the Standford-Binet Intelligence-Quotient test first used in the 1960s.
It is not generally considered by mainstream modern psychology as an accurate indicator of intelligence. In fact, that lack of a satisfactory definition of "intelligence" still bedevils the discipline. Modern thought on what constitutes "intelligence" (Gardner et al.) has impacted Pedagogy significantly.
To borrow a quote, "IQ is that which IQ tests measure." It is a somewhat touching, yet uninformed, artefact that suggests the precociousness of the young discipline of Psychology; that intelligence could be defined so narrowly and accurately gauged so easily as Standford-Binet put forth is ludicrous.
However, whatever one considers "intelligence," it would, more than likely bear some positive correlation with test IQ test scores.
The definition and quantification of "intelligence" shall elude science for quite some time to come.
Shakira's IQ is 140.
