I considered finding another forum recently, but never in all the thousands of hours I've spent on-line have I found a place with the balance found here. The cafe has both mundane and extraordinary topics to choose from depending on my mood. Most forums either take themselves too seriously or not seriously enough. The cafe is just right.
As far as IQ tests are concerned, I believe the only think IQ tests accurately measure is your ability to take IQ tests. Just like the SAT. If you do well on the SAT, it likely means you're pretty smart, but if you don't do well, it also doesn't mean you're stupid. The opposite pertains also. Just because you're good at taking IQ tests doesn't mean you have a shred of common sense. For instance, bragging about your IQ is a pretty pretentious thing to do and we can probably all agree that being overtly pretentious isn't the smartest way to act. Just to prove that I'm no better than any of you, I actually considered joining Mensa once. I used to get Mensa puzzle books and really get off when I figured out a puzzle that a majority of Mensa members couldn't. I ultimately decided not to pursue it when I realized that my motivation in joining would only be to be able to say that I was a member of Mensa. Pretty vain, huh?
