    Sure, fine - I know several people that have good social skills, are really intelligent, are in good shape, and good looking.
    Careful! they may be gay.... jk

    Frankly, I disagree about Travis' theory of 'balance'
    Mental competence is a direct result of genetic make-up. It is independant of other aspects a person may have. (Level of education is not an indicator of intelligence, nor are their personality) I guess it comes down to a dice roll when it comes to things like looks and smarts.

    And as far as I know about autism, there have been cases where autistic children are indeed very... (well you can't call it smart until you properly define it) logical in that they just look at something like a cipher and see the pattern right away.

    If you were talking about Fear's above post, I suspect he was saying that people use photoshop to doctor the snapshots of their IQ scores..etc. But, the score itself is pointless anyways.

    Anyhow, that's what I got out of Fear's post - if that's not how it was meant, then that was a very odd moment.
    The world is waiting. I must leave you now.

    They should make a patience test and just put on stupid questions and base your score on how long you spent answerng them.
    There's an IQ test out there (forgot which one) that bases your score on how many pages answer before you stop. It's an infinitely long test. The longer you go, the lower your IQ
    Try not.
    Do or do not.
    There is no try.

    pffffffffff---t

    So in theory, if I do not do that test, I would be infinitely intelligent? (having spent 0 time on the test, and the reciprocal of 0...)

    I scored in the 140's. That makes me a genius! Ha! My view is it's mostly hogwash though, people shouldn't be measured in those terms. Personal accounts are much more convincing and precise than an arbirary questionaire that may pander to only 20% of the intelligent people ever interviewed. Besides that, some of the most intelligent people are simple and smart but not a bit 'book-learned'. Their wisdom and intelligence grew out of their direct contact with nature and the survival skills earned in hard times. What's more intelligent? A genuis that lives in absolute squalor - or a poor, unlearned man that saves every red cent and build his life with his own two hands, due to an undeniable intelligence on his part? In my view, intelligence is not measured by mere abstraction then. But whatever, no I didn't make Mensa and I'm not bitter about it either...
    Code:
    bool fun(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow(std::exp(1), std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
        * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1)*(1 << (value + 2))))
        .real() > 0;
    }

    I think travis has a point in a lot of cases...of course not all..but a lot. Kids who can get into the social scene, even if they are pretty smart, tend to be social instead of learning. The kid who doesnt drink every night and chill with friends sits at home and programs or something. It's not anything like a rule...but I bet there is a trend you can find there. There are def kids who do it all though...lucky people.

    Everyone always seems to laugh at those iq tests because they get 140 or 150 and are like...yeah right. I don't think they are accurate to ####...but come on...the average person is like 100-120 or something. The average person is dumb as ####. The people here...people who are at a programming board of there own free will are def above average...so anyone here with prob at least break 120. Mabye.

    Or im full of ####.
