I had a conversation with a friend of mine, where I made the point that I really don't like IQ tests because all they measure is how good you are at IQ tests. However, since I've never actually taken an IQ test in anger, I thought I'd take a few today to compare and contrast.Quite a range - I rest my case. While randomly surfing, I also discovered that my personality type is Visionary (Extraverted Intuition with Introverted Thinking).

Okay, fair play. I had that coming, and you're quite correct. The point I was trying to make is that people who say, "Woot! I've got a higher IQ than you, ergo I must be more intelligent," are basing their comparison on a very subjective system of rating intelligence.

As an aside: I'm not very good at the verbal and numeric tests, but I excel at the spatial awareness and pattern matching stuff.
