When i First Came to the "Wrong Planet Website," Designed
As A Support Site for the "Neuro-Diverse" Among Us; And
Others Who Care to Participate; the Person Whose Intelligence i admired

The Most, Had Nothing to Do With Standard I.Q., And Everything to Do With
A Kind of Intelligence i Was Sorely Lacking in then, Scoring a 45 on the Simon
Baron Cohen, Autism Quotient (AQ) Scan For Autism; Albeit Not A Specific Diagnostic Tool;

True, The Kind of Intelligence i Lacked With my Stellar Mechanical Systemizing Intelligence Was
That of "Social Empathic, Imaginary And Creative Intelligences," Better Related to William Blake And "To see a World
in a Grain of Sand And a Heaven in a Wild Flower, Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand And Eternity in an hour."

Indeed, That's What Cockney Rebel Did With "Sweet Peas;" God Yes, i Wanted the Wonder and Amazement,
The Eyes of A Three Year-Old Child Before He Could Speak At Age 4; Living on the Riverfront Gazing
Across the River to the Forest With A Clear Innate, Instinctual, And Intuitive Understanding Deep

Within in Right Hemisphere Ways of Processing Existence That i Am the Leaf That Greens the
Tree that Browns, Falls, And Feeds the Soul Of Soils For New Green Flowering Life For Summer

'Forest Bathing' Delight; Or

Perhaps Seeing

'Heaven In A Sweet Pea;'

i Understood Vaguely the Opaque
Window i Lived Behind, Not Able
To Generate Heaven Within this Way;

i Just Wanted to Escape Back to the
Eyes and Ears of that Three-Year-Old
Child to Be the Leaf and The Forest Whole Once again;
Waves, Water, Ocean Whole, All the Jazz That Comes with

Unity DArK Thru

LiGHT

With No more
Duality Now of
Thinking Trapped
in A Data Download
Mind From 19-Years Spent
Close to the Top of the Class
At School, Earning Three Degrees at Once;
Eventually, Earning High Pay For Retirement
Through Information Technology and Financial
Management Skills Yet Not Unlike the "Dead Poet's

Society" And the Advice There, i Never Learned How
to Rip All the Rules Out of 'the Book' And Begin Again in

Wings Unleashed and Set Free Of Original IMaGiNaTioN And CREaTiViTY;

i Ace All 'These Silly Online IQ Tests' As They Cater to Ego For Some Kind of Financial Gain;

They Aren't Worth Any 'Salt of the Earth For Real' And On Top of that the Licensed Clinical Social
Worker And Psychotherapist Who Treated me in a real 66 Month Shut-in Hell of an "Autism Burnout"
Who Diagnosed me With Asperger's Syndrome Along With 3 Other Professionals, Diagnosing my Sister
too in middle Age; Yes, She Assessed my IQ off the Charts As It's true There is NO Empirical Measure for

the Kind of
Intelligence
That Cockney
Rebel Expresses

in Terms of What i was Missing
Most When i First Came to This
Internet Site on Thanks Giving Day of 2010;

The Other Side of the AQ Scan Indeed; i Searched
Really Deep to Seek it; i Found it and Now Personally

i Finally Don't Feel Lost Like i Can't Get Out of a Paper-Bag;
A Labyrinth of Abstract Constructs From School Designed to
Continue to Make the Tools of Culture And Yes Maintain them

As Cogs in 'the Machine' So Far Away From my Nature Naked, Enough, Whole
Complete; Yes, Embodied With Emotional Regulation And Sensory Integration

That Arts of Life From Moving Meditation to Painting Can And Will Bring; Yes, i See
the Most Amazing Part of Cockney Rebel's Intelligence is Most of it is "Off the Charts."

It's True, Not too Long ago, A Really Smart Standard IQ Guy Suggested i Was "Off;" True, in these

Terms it's
A Badge
of Honor
i Wear of
Being Fully
Embodied in Joy For Real...

(True, Now Actually i'm Turned
Totally And Fully On For Real)

Other than that Systemizing
Intelligence, Secured a Lot of Wealth
For me, Where i Don't Have to be A Starving
Artist; i get to Bring Smiles to People's Faces
All Around my Metro Area and the Globe Now for

Those Who Have Eyes and Ears Still to Appreciate
A Free Dance And Song of Life...

Cheers! to "Sweet Peas!"

Cheers! to Those Who
'See And Hear' With More
Than Just Materially Reduced;
Yes, Restricted Left Hemisphere

Ways of Organs of Eyes and Ears;

Cheers to the Systemizers too; as
True They Have Designed These Bones of the Online
Hive and i and Others Get to Add the 'Flesh and Blood'...

We All Play A Vital Role in Both A Surviving and Thriving Hive;

Do Both If you
Can And Will; Just A
Suggestion From Someone
Who Checked Out A Book on
"How To Be Creative," A Dozen And More Times in College Not Realizing

That It's Not Something You Do According to Instructions or Rules...

Like What Socrates Related, It's When You Lose 'Your Mind' And
The 'Daemon Within' Comes to LiGHT of Original Creativity For Real...

It's True 'i Know
Nothing' Now i am
Always Beginning
To Create From New...

It takes Quite A Bit of Standard
IQ to Understand the Research of Iain
McGilchrist, Oxford Scholar, Psychiatrist,
And Mind Researcher, Who Has Written a
1500 Page Book With Close to 600,000 Words

("The Matter With Things")

In Total Exploration of the Human Mind as that Applies
to the Processes of Left Hemisphere and Right Hemisphere
Ways of Processing Reality; Yet If You Don't Wanna Read the Book;

He's on the 14th Volume Now, Summarizing it New on His YouTube
Channel that Doesn't Have Any of those Annoying Ads to Sell Solar Panels, hehe...

It Only Affirms The Way i Found my Way Out of the Labyrinth of Super High Standard IQ Before;
So Restricted in Left Hemisphere Ways of Materially Reducing the Nature of Reality and My Free Nature too...

Honestly, As far as
i Process Life Now;

It's the Difference
Between Black And White

TV And A Forest Full Of
Colorful FLoWeRS Truly ALiVE And Breathing...

Or A Field Full of 'Sweet Peas' From Another View From Within...

Other than that i Learned More About Being Wild and Free From
A Feral Cat We Took In than 19 Years of School and 33 Years of Work For Pay;

Somehow, i Managed to Get Rid of my Allergy to Cats And The 'Call of the Wild' for Real...

PS: There Was Also A Flowing Creative Story Telling Ability of a User Named "Inventor" too;

True then, i Was One of Few
Who Could Understand Him;

Yet It's Also True As A Child i Was
Of the More Non-Verbal Hyperlexic
Gillberg Criteria of Asperger's Syndrome,
With Perhaps, More Right Hemisphere Potential;
Gillberg's Work on Asperger's Syndrome Was Closer
To What Hans Asperger Actually Clinically Studied
As the 'United States APA' Basically Created "Autism Lite"
For Asperger's Syndrome in the 1990's Then; Yes, Now it's
Basically Subsumed in Generalities of Behavioral Deficits; Yep

It's Basically A Label And A Collection of Behavioral Deficits; Humans
Are Way More Complex And Changing Than Materially Reduced Labels And Behaviors;
i'm A Totally Different Creation of A Human Being Than Before; And The Before me Would

Have A Lot of Trouble
Understanding the
Now me, Like
A Stranger
in A Different World;
Day Compared to Night.

The problem with this IQ test (and many other online tests) is that it only measures a specific part of your intelligence. Most online IQ tests measure your perceptual reasoning score which is your ability to recognize patterns along with your spatial awareness ability. If you have a high score in this aspect of intelligence, then great, but it doesn't paint the whole picture like an official intelligence test does.

However, an official IQ test such as the WAIS measures different types of intelligences. For example, the four sub-tests in the WAIS test includes perceptual reasoning, verbal comprehension, working memory, and processing speed. Your scores on these sub-tests are then averaged out to get your full-scale IQ.

Perceptual Reasoning measures your ability to think spatially and also your ability to identify patterns. Most online IQ tests focuses on this aspect of intelligence.

Verbal Comprehension is your ability to understand and reason using words.

Working Memory measures your auditory and short term memory. Most online IQ tests DON'T test for working memory, even though it's on the WAIS which is an official IQ test. How they test your working memory is they give you random numbers, which you must then repeat back. Then they give you random numbers, and not only do you have to remember the numbers, but you also have to say which number is the highest and the lowest.

Processing Speed is designed to measure how quickly one can complete simple, timed cognitive tasks using pencil and paper.

I got 172 and it called me Albert Einstein.

I agree with aghogday, I can feel my ego being massaged. If I was unusually smart I'd have noticed.

I don't really know what's being measured with these sorts of tests. My ability to spot patterns and extrapolate? Is that all IQ is?

Amazing.
I consider that test not thorough enough.
School tested me gifted in Grade 3.
Only my parent thought my aspergers was "social problems."
Now aspie life with nts has beaten me down to 80 ?
And I program in proprietary languages most others cannot.
They wanted to boot me up to Grade 5 to "give me a challenge."
So I am now an 80 ?
Undiagnosed asperger life is destructive.

Wrongplanet.net is now calling itself autistic !
Man, your clinical knowledge of the differences between ASs and HFAs is sorely deficient, as well as the uniqueness of AS.
AS is a singular diagnosis ignored out of existence for gross inconvenience and the almighty buck.
If you are a sheep that believes Big Brother's lies I am sorry for you.

Wrongplanet.net is now "Autistic?"
Inane.
I will have nothing more to do with it.
Good riddance to blind sheep; leaves blown with the latest wind !

My real score is just 141... I used to score higher on these 10 years or so back... Getting dumber with age, and I know that for a fact.

I've always wanted to know if people are allowed to use a pencil for maths questions on online IQ tests?

I always assumed that it's supposed to be mental math without pencils, paper, etc.

Just curious.

Why not use pencils, etc? What they test is how fast you come up with the correct answers. They don’t care how you got the answer.

I don't know.
I just assumed it was supposed to be mental, like what you "know" in your head.
Of course you could also know things with a pencil, though.

In my case I've always been quick with mental calculations.
It didn't occur to me to try a pencil.
I'm sure that would help sometimes, especially since my strokes.

I did the one in the first post during lunch and got 179. :D I do know that I'm smart, but probably not that smart. My real IQ is probably closer to 145 - 150. They asked for my age and gender and language. Maybe I got some bonus for being an old woman whose first language isn't English? :D
