iq number is just the ability to do math equation and verbal logic, nothing else it only shows someones intelligence in that area, that's a very small portion of total intelligence in a person intelligence means a lot more than that, for example: -social skills -music -art -self awareness or spirituality -kinaesthetic and a lot more if you believe you can display someones intelligence by an stupid number, you sir are very dumb in fact you have very low iq (/sarcasm) xd you should research about what iq was all about in the first place and why people made it, then you might get my point i can suggest books about it for those who are interested (dumb replies can go fuck off, not gonna waste my time on them)

True. But I must point out one thing: " -music -art " In your opinion, music isn't art?
2019-01-18 21:36

You can consider everything to be art. There are different skills at work in music and traditional art.
2019-01-18 21:55
France theJpay 
Smart answer. But why seperate music from everything else then? And the skills you need are somehow similar to painting or sculpting if this is what you're naming "traditional art". You need creativity and a technical skill (voice/instrument or painting/sculting)

Usually someone's Intelligence is measured in 4 different area's: (IQ) intellectual intelligence, Emotional Intelligence (EQ), Spiritual Intelligence (SQ) and Physical Intelligence (PQ). You can score very high on one area but score very low on the other. -edit of course you also have the Theory of multiple Intelligences, but thats a theory.

physical intelligence? Do you have a high physical intelligence if u deadlift 500kg or play in NBA
2019-01-18 22:51
If physical intelligence is a thing then I'm Einstein
2019-01-18 22:55
no bro it exists some people are just awesome playin games while others arent its in terms of succeeding in a game (basketball e.g.) where someone from the first few times will be able to make them triples, while others need warm up and years of practice

social skills the most complicated one
2019-01-18 21:48
To me, social skills are more about self confidence, and thus about one's past, than about intelligence. Well this statement has its limits obviously, some persons are naturally very charimsatic and have a natural leadership.

so do you mean social skills are underrated? I dont see how social skills are overrated
2019-01-19 13:03
Croatia mds818 
what im saying is that majority of HLTV users are saying that social skills are hard etc (#10) but the thing is that the reason why they're saying that is not because social skills are actually hard, its them being afraid to communicate with other people in the life(ie their "crushes") and thats most likely the reason why they're saying that
2019-01-19 13:26
-music -art How are these connected to intelligence?
2019-01-18 21:49
Verbal intelligence? Creativity?
2019-01-18 21:53
How in the world is music verbal intelligence? You basically have that in social skills already. Creativity is now part of intelligence? nah m8
2019-01-18 22:29
I didnt say they where just pointing out what OP may have ment with it.

creativity is part of problem solving so it is thus a part of intelligence.

There is no such thing as "art inteligence", but there is musical inteligence and that means how good you can immidiatelly recognice and understand notes, tones, rhythm, etc. and the ability to create music.
2019-01-19 12:17
This falls in the realm of experience

the same with learning math, there are people talented in music and people who strugle to understand it bro

IQ is made up number If have high IQ it is easy to tell, you have horrible nightmeres, no problem drwaing, overall you think faster and learn faster, more detailed work, higher chance of getting mental sickness
2019-01-18 21:57
Actually, IQ is also influenced by education People tend to believe that it's only about genetic intelligence. It's supposed to be, but it's not totally true. To simplify, we can say that it measures logic. However, someone who's trained its logic, for example by learning mathematics, will obviously have a better score than someone who's never done any logic exercise, and this is true whatever are the genes. Yes, we all have a different potential But IQ doesn't exactly reflect this potential. You need a great potential to reach high IQ score, and you have to be naturally extremly stupid to have a very low score. However, between 2 persons with 90 and 110 IQ for example, it could be a genetic difference, but it could also be an educational difference, and people often don't realize that.
2019-01-18 21:58
you could've just said that iq is a social construct and will be absolutely meaningless once the paradigm shifts
2019-01-18 22:16
Yeah but the idea I really wanted to say was that IQ doesn't measure the genetical intelligence Because that's what a lot of people believe (and I did as well not so long ago)

IQ 85 topic
2019-01-18 22:36
I agree that IQ is stupid is people rely on it do judge other. Yet, you can't say music, art, self awareness or spirituality and kinaesthetic has no link wit IQ. Because it has. Multiple experiences showed that occidental music, art, etc.. As link with mathematics. Which is linked to IQ. Renaissance artist, such as De Vinci, is an obvious exemple of that. So please, don't be part of the polemic, let low IQ people fight for their interest. At te end, we are above them, we will prevail.
2019-01-18 22:45
I study psychology and the claim that modern iq points are based solely on math equations and verbal logic is simply not true.
2019-01-18 23:00
which kind of test did u analyze? online?
2019-01-18 23:14
2019-01-18 23:20
there are many test available and i asked which test u tested?
2019-01-18 23:28
There are many tests for IQ and there isn't a universal one. So this guy stating that modern IQ gets tested the way he said it gets, is just not true

An intelligence quotient (IQ) is a total score derived from several standardized tests designed to assess human intelligence. The abbreviation "IQ" was coined by the psychologist William Stern for the German term Intelligenzquotient, his term for a scoring method for intelligence tests at University of Breslau he advocated in a 1912 book.[1] Historically, IQ is a score obtained by dividing a person's mental age score, obtained by administering an intelligence test, by the person's chronological age, both expressed in terms of years and months. The resulting fraction is multiplied by 100 to obtain the IQ score.[2] When current IQ tests were developed, the median raw score of the norming sample is defined as IQ 100 and scores each standard deviation (SD) up or down are defined as 15 IQ points greater or less,[3] although this was not always so historically. By this definition, approximately two-thirds of the population scores are between IQ 85 and IQ 115. About 2.5 percent of the population scores above 130, and 2.5 percent below 70.[4][5] Scores from intelligence tests are estimates of intelligence. Unlike, for example, distance and mass, a concrete measure of intelligence cannot be achieved given the abstract nature of the concept of "intelligence".[6] IQ scores have been shown to be associated with such factors as morbidity and mortality,[7][8] parental social status,[9] and, to a substantial degree, biological parental IQ. While the heritability of IQ has been investigated for nearly a century, there is still debate about the significance of heritability estimates[10][11] and the mechanisms of inheritance.[12] IQ scores are used for educational placement, assessment of intellectual disability, and evaluating job applicants. Even when students improve their scores on standardized tests, they do not always improve their cognitive abilities, such as memory, attention and speed.[13] In research contexts they have been studied as predictors of job performance, and income. They are also used to study distributions of psychometric intelligence in populations and the correlations between it and other variables. Raw scores on IQ tests for many populations have been rising at an average rate that scales to three IQ points per decade since the early 20th century, a phenomenon called the Flynn effect. Investigation of different patterns of increases in subtest scores can also inform current research on human intelligence.

IQ is, in a nutshell, just a speed coeficient that reliably reflects your ability of information processing ... no less, no more ...

but if u have a good IQ u can think faster than other people , so its relevant , but u can train this to get a highest IQ score.

False. The correlation between high IQ and success is astronomically clear. IQ is based off of a few indicators of broad success. Have you done any research?

I know somebody from primary school and his iq was probably pretty low, he barely passed primary school and he needed more time to understand some things like math problems etc. He also barely passed high school. He was not very bright, but he was hard working. Then he went to work abroad for one year. Later on he opened his own company and now he have a company with 10 employees and he is expanding every year. You don't need to have high iq to be successful in life, hard work, patient and not giving up will do.
2019-01-19 12:13
Stopped reading at "social skills". As the name suggests, it is a skill and has nothing to do with intelligence, but rather experience. Same goes for the rest, too. But you have a point at the very beginning, 3/8

well it also envelops pattern recognition which isn't necessarily a math skill imo. pattern recognition was useful to mankind way before we had any notion of the study of mathematics. and whoever predicts patterns the best will have more chance to survive. of course you cannot measure all round intelligence but the IQ tests do cover a lot of grounds needed to function as a grown human being. but in the end there are some many factors coming into play, like the notion that a lot of people with high intelligence cannot function properly and are more prone to mental diseases or depression. last but not least there is just plain laziness; a guy with 100IQ who works his ass of in university will be a lot smarter than a guy with 110IQ who only plays fortnite and wanks all day.
2019-01-19 12:52
I personally measure people's intellect on basic stuff, f.e. getting an inside joke instantly (<--Most Important one) understanding of foreign languages or ability to spell correctly People that brag with their IQ are idiots
