Terms For Various IQ Ranges

140+ -    Genius
130-139 - Very Superior
120–129 - Superior
110–119 - High Average
90–109 -   Average
80–89 -    Low Average
70–79 -    Borderline
69 and below - Extremely Low (Ryn Bishof level)

This is what I mean when I talk about people having a genius IQ. It just means you have an IQ over 140. That’s it.

Problem is there are two separate definitions of IQ.

One is simply a term for a range on an IQ test.

The other is the term we apply to certain remarkably gifted rate human beings such as Mozart and Einstein.

The problem comes in because morons confuse the two definitions. Typically, people think that genius only means definition #2 above. Therefore when someone say they have a genius IQ (which is sort of like saying you are 6’2 feet tall) they are routinely savagely attacked for supposedly claiming that they are definition #2.

You try to explain tho them that there are two definitions of the word and you get anger, denial and bluster. Many people will insanely say that definition #1 does not even exist and that the only definition of the word is definition #2. However, if you look in a dictionary, you will see that there is more than one definition to the word. Most people seem to have a hard time understanding (possibly because they are retarded) that words in human languages can actually have more than one meaning. Gasp!

My father liked to think in this concretistic, non-analytical way. He thought words had only one definition, and he would often even reject the Oxford Dictionary if it contradicted him. He also refused to believe in the concept of slang and how slang could create new definitions for existing words that meant something different from what most people think the word meant. My father said that people who believed this were simply mistaken. Those slang users who were using the word with the new meaning they gave to it were simply using the word wrong as he put it.

Anyway what I am pointing out here is that anyone with an IQ over 140 can call themselves a genius, although that might create a lot of unneeded backlash. Instead they could simply say that they have a genius IQ, which is simply a 100% true fact.

It’s not a value judgement or bragging or arrogance or anything like that, though you might want to watch how you say it so you don’t come across as a douchebag. However, stated modestly, saying that one has a genius IQ is about as arrogant as saying that one is 6’2. It is simply a statement of fact about the individual. One is the scientific and precise measurement of one’s height. The other is the scientific and precise measurement of one’s intelligence.

    Slavery of the past was mostly slavery of the retarded. Nonetheless, it was still evil. The conquering of the Australian aborigines was also a clear case of dominant IQ, but again no need to be an ass about it.

    Yeah the main problem with WN thinking is being an ass, trying to rub people’s faces in it. Also, they can’t really be totally sure about thier own IQ. Considering the WNs come from crappy backgrounds, they often have serious problems on par with the people they hate.

  2. Jason Y

    I’m wondering if anyone of a higher IQ could have interacted with those of a lower IQ without conquering them and/or enslaving them. Of course, in olden times IQ would have lead certain groups to develop superior weapons.

    • That would depend on the IQ of the lower IQ ones.

      BTW, if by slavery you are referring to primarily Black slavery, that was mainly done by Africans towards commoners of another tribe/criminals.

      While some IQs of different tribes varied, they wasn’t as big as a gap as between whites and Blacks.

      Then again. their was also European prejudice towards Slavs, tale explaining they are called that due to being dubbed a “slave race”. I believe in terms of their IQ it’s low but not as low as Africans.

        Stuff about slavs seems like a bunch of BS. Anyhow, who will be laughing at them once Russia launches nukes? 😆

        Almost all groups think they’re better than other groups. Unless it’s some situation like what we see with white worship in Northeast Asia or India. Even in that case, they think aspects of their culture are superior to the west.

      • Jason Y

        The IQ figures of eastern europe aren’t that bad. In fact, they seem to mimic the USA. Of course, eastern europe is a haven for pornographic exploitation. Some might say a lower iQ would lead to a situation for easier sex, but the IQ isn’t that low In Eastern Europe. Seems more like that Eastern Europe is exploited simply for economic reasons that weren’t shaped by IQ.

      • “Stuff about slavs seems like a bunch of BS. Anyhow, who will be laughing at them once Russia launches nukes? 😆”
        And….other superpowers don’t?

        “The IQ figures of eastern europe aren’t that bad.” well, generally on the lower end for Europe but on a global sclae know.

        “In fact, they seem to mimic the USA.” the U.S is 99, the median score for all of those is likely closer to 95.

        “Of course, eastern europe is a haven for pornographic exploitation. Some might say a lower iQ would lead to a situation for easier sex, but the IQ isn’t that low In Eastern Europe. Seems more like that Eastern Europe is exploited simply for economic reasons that weren’t shaped by IQ.”

        Or the simply have different genes for IQ which makes sense since they are a different type of european.

          No I just find it ironic that a group put in the category with slaves now is a nuclear power.

        • Jason Y

          Note when Hitler spoke of mixing with other races he wasn’t speaking necessarily of blacks, but more like of slavs. The racism in Europe was more akin to the Japanese against Korean hatred in Asia. In fact, Hitler thought so low of mixing with slavs he said it produced monsters, not images of the lord.

          However, in America, mixing with slavs isn’t seen as a big deal, though getting people to accept black/white unions has been a struggle.

      • Jason Y

        Do you think western Europeans would have imported slavic slaves to the New World if that were the only option? Would the slavs over time mix in better with Anglo Saxons etc.. ?

        • Them being a “slave race”, if that’s even true, was diminished I believe way before major exploration.

          “No I just find it ironic that a group put in the category with slaves now is a nuclear power.” Well Russia, from what I heard, is 96 so they are one of the smarter “slavs”.

          “Note when Hitler spoke of mixing with other races he wasn’t speaking necessarily of blacks, but more like of slavs. The racism in Europe was more akin to the Japanese against Korean hatred in Asia.

          Actually mixing with “lesser Europeans” was actually a huge thing in American History, However if they assimilated then it wouldn’t be a big deal but how many did?

  3. I don’t see why somebody in the 140-150 range should be in the same category as somebody 160-170 or 180-200 range.

    Why should everybody above 140 get the highest designation when there is just as big of a difference between 120 and 140 as there is between 140 and 160?

    There is a vast difference between 140 and 180, so why not differentiate further?

    To me, genius connotes high ability that is more exceptional than 140.

    I don’t think its something somebody should say about themselves because however intelligent we are, we must also recognise how limited we are. So what’s the point in giving yourself the highest compliment and calling yourself a genius when you are so limited compared to what is possible or even to others who have lived like von Neumann? Better to be humble.

    • Tulio

      Let’s not forget that this scale of genius is a human construct. I’m not saying differences in intelligence are a construct, that’s obviously a real phenomena. But designating specific labels for every 10 points you are up the scales is completely arbitrary. Why is genius 140 and not 133, or 162? Why does it have to be a nice round number based on our ten-digit numbering system? Doesn’t make much sense. It’s like labeling someone as an adult when they are 18. Who is to really say 18 makes you an adult? Why not 20? or 16?

      • “But designating specific labels for every 10 points you are up the scales is completely arbitrary. Why is genius 140 and not 133, or 162?

        Likely because geniuses, in otherword those of a proffessional degree that are distinguish, are often in the 140 range.

        https://www.quora.com/How-do-the-average-IQs-rank-by-profession-Which-professions-have-the-highest-IQs

        The average person of a high professional occupation appears to average in the 130 range, so one of a 140 range would likely be distinguished.

        Tulio, rather than calling it arbitrary why not research it yourself?

      • As for your comment on adults, that would again vary on circumstances of cultural expectation and the point of maturity of a population.

        Plus look at 18, that pretty much a median between 16 and 20, that itself being an average. basically it is around this time that one would be physically an adult.

        10 points on an IQ also correlates with a higher level of skill as tests would shoe.

        To, Steve

        the reason why 140 is the cut off is that past that point their isn’t any current role in society that distinguish a 140 from a 200 in terms of skill set. As well, passed that point and keep in mind IQ is a measure on g correlated skills rather than g itself, i also heard that while they have different scores their differences in actual ability often have less gaps than with between 130 and 140.

      • “should”, not “shoe”

      • Have you noticed that humans, especially science-minded ones, tend to give labels to numerical ranges for various phenomena? What’s wrong with that?

        Over 132 is gifted. 132-139 is gifted. Above that is genius. I have met quite a few gifted folks, and they never give quite a fuck that they are only gifted and not genius. Honestly, no one cares about IQ in the real world.

        People only upset and weird about it on the Internet for some reason.

        • Jason Y

          Generally IQ is an obsession with racists who want to jerk them self off to the notion they’re superior to certain groups. Oddly enough though so many WNs are low class trash thier attempts at acting superior is laughed upon by non-whites, who seem them, well, as white trash.

        • Jason Y

          Most really high IQ people with the exception of some WN extremists tend to be people the least interested in tooting thier horn, or be interested wnite nationalism. Normally they would be left leaning and they would be tolerant people even though their wealth and other factors would probably isolate them from low IQ people.

          For instance, my brother who makes 200,000 a year or something, is isolated in this really safe yuppie white community. Sure he’s tolerant and would hang around with non-whites, but with his income he almost always moved toward a house in a richer neighborhood.

        • Jason Y

          Maybe my brother wouldn’t hang with non-whites for safety reasons, but the doesn’t go out and promote a hateful agenda against non-whites. Basically like most lefties he just ignores them. He can ignore them since they are so far away from him, and he’s also far away from poor whites.

        • Jason Y

          The question is gifted in what? Some are gifted in music, some in math, some in writing.

        • “Generally IQ is an obsession with racists who want to jerk them self off to the notion they’re superior to certain groups. Oddly enough though so many WNs are low class trash thier attempts at acting superior is laughed upon by non-whites, who seem them, well, as white trash.”

          Well to some but to others it’s simplt psychometric intrigue. If it’s abused by others, well, that’s not really the fault of the researchers.

          “The question is gifted in what? Some are gifted in music, some in math, some in writing.”

          They are, at that point, at a range in which they are typical versatile in complex tasks.

          Yeah, these people with extremely high IQ are deep underground in the CERN laboratory. They’re too busy unraveling the mystery of particle physics to be concerned with white nationalism. I’m guessing most these internet warriors pushing HBD online are in the 100-115 range but think they are geniuses.

        • Tulio

          I’m also pretty sure I’ve read that the higher one’s IQ, the least likely one is to be racist.

      • Another William Playfair Web

        It’s so much easier to use the model with an SD of 15 as opposed to an SD of 16….

    • Why should everybody above 140 get the highest designation when there is just as big of a difference between 120 and 140 as there is between 140 and 160?

      I doubt if this sentence is true. I have spoken at length with people who have 160 IQ’s and it didn’t seem like they were a Hell of a lot smarter than I was. I actually had to explain some stuff to him. I had a gf who had a 140 IQ and there’s wasn’t much difference between her and me.

      There is a vast difference between 140 and 180, so why not differentiate further?

      What makes you sure that is true. People with 180 IQ’s are very rare.

      I don’t think its something somebody should say about themselves because however intelligent we are, we must also recognise how limited we are.

      There is nothing wrong with saying you have a genius IQ. But calling yourself a genius could cause problems. I tell people I have a genius IQ sometimes, and no one cares one bit. But I know how to say things like that without sounding like I am bragging. When I say something like that, I act like I am embarassed or ashamed, and no one cares when you do it like that.

      So a person who is 6’5 should not state that fact because he should recognize how limited in height we are?

      So what’s the point in giving yourself the highest compliment and calling yourself a genius when you are so limited compared to what is possible or even to others who have lived like von Neumann? Better to be humble.

      I see you are conflating definitions again. Didn’t I just tell you not to do that?

      When you sit down and realize that 1% of the population has a genius IQ, you can see that genius IQ’s are quite common. If they’re that common, why get upset about the idea?

  4. Matt

    Isn’t 160 the upper limit for adult IQ?

  5. People are prideful of their intelligence,but hardly anyone I know is prideful or proud of their height.

  6. When it comes to attracting women

    Height >>>Intelligence

  7. Jason Y

    I don’t have no idea what my IQ is. I’m very awesome at certain things, but struggle in other things, and in some things it’s an average situation. All this is true despite having a personality disorder.

    • Tulio

      You can find IQ tests online that should give you an idea. They’re supposed to be administered by a professional, but if you take several different ones online and get similar scores, you’ll have a rough idea where you stand.

      I’m guessing you’re about 105-110 from your writing.

  8. Another William Playfair Web

    The problem comes in because morons confuse the two definitions. Typically, people think that genius only means definition #2 above. Therefore when someone say they have a genius IQ (which is sort of like saying you are 6’2 feet tall) they are routinely savagely attacked for supposedly claiming that they are definition #2.

    According to various web sources, the median White male height is 5’10” (or 70 inches) tall. While the SD, is about 2.3 inches.
    So a White male with a height of 6’2” (74 inches), would be not quite 2SDs above the median. That analogy would indicate that the SD in IQs is over 20.
    Was this intended?

  9. Jason Y

    Does anyone think the IQ tests could be biased by the maker. For instance, an IQ test made by a New Yorker might confuse an Appalachian, or one made by somebody in Leave it to Beaver land might confuse a negro?

    • Tulio

      I believe there are culture-free tests that remove that possibility. Things like seeing patterns in a group of shapes or guessing the next number in a sequence don’t seem to be dependent upon one’s culture.

      Only problem is, I think you can improve your score a bit with each test. Because I’ve taken a few different ones and sort of know what to expect and the type of thought pattern it takes to solve the question.

      It would be great if there was a way to measure raw G.

      • Jason Y

        Right exactly, in other words, you can train for the test. You can train your mind. That seems to be a big crushing defeat to white nationalists and thier chauvanism. IQ isn’t set in stone, it can be improved.

  10. Jason Y

    What abou this test? Is it a good one?

    http://www.free-iqtest.net/

  11. Jason Y

    Well, for one thing, looking at online IQ tests Iv’e seen the following:

    Knowing a lot of trivia knowledge seems to be on many, but I can’t see how that would help build a society, like say Japan.

    Also, intellegenece measured by understanding of sequences and shapes is something which can be learned by a lot of people given the right training.

    So to sum it up, it seems like the idea that the vast majority of certain races are doomed to be useless sub-humans, as WNs would say, doesn’t hold much water.

    Anyone disagree?

    • Jason Y

      If IQ is based all on sequences and shapes, then it seems like high IQ people like Robert Lindsay would be able to master math, but as he stated, he has a tough time even with algebra.

    • Jason Y

      Anyone know of brain traning games? They’re popular nowadays. Given these games exist, how fixed is IQ genetically?

    • “Anyone disagree?”

      Okay, first of all, IQ tests online are no good.

      Second, in regards to you’re “biased by the maker” comment, do you even know how real standardize ones work?

      “If IQ is based all on sequences and shapes, then it seems like high IQ people like Robert Lindsay would be able to master math, but as he stated, he has a tough time even with algebra.”

      Because the IQ was mostly with his VERBAL. He made a post on it already.

      Third, the skill sets you are describing are narrow and also they way you describe them is insufficient because a pattern could be actually difficult to figure out unless you are naturally at the right level of natural ability at least within a time frame.

      Fourth, even with things that can be educated people with higher IQs retin them more.

      Fifth, it’s not simply those FEW skill sets you described that makes other races in disadvantages, their is also natural ability of foresight, memory, planning, industriousness, and self control which correlates with IQ.

      • Jason Y

        I might agree with you that online IQ tests are bad, but I don’t really have experience with offline ones. I think I took some at some point, but I never bothered to find out the score. However, as with the online ones, there were some fixing the picture situations.

      • Jason Y

        Robert might even get a Forrest Gump IQ on the online ones, because the one I looked at was heavy into picture fitting and sequences. It’s sort of humiliating really.

    • This guy proves my point with Online IQ tests being flawed.
