according to a recent nation-wide IQ test, conducted as a television event, i have an IQ of 146 :o not that i'm an expert in the setting of IQ tests, but i thought some of the questions/categories weren't all that useful in testing intelligence, per se. my score was probably inflated thanks to
  • a solid grasp of the english language
  • having previously seen questions similar in type to some of the items in this test
  • being older than i was a week ago, which placed me in a more "forgiving" age category!

anyhow, they say that the highly intelligent generally have a deficiency of common sense and/or aren't particularly adept at social graces and tasks associated with day to day living. what happens if you aren't particularly highly intelligent, yet exhibit the above shortcomings? :|
