IQ tests aren't objective at all, it was proven many times before. Many people, who are actually really smart in life can't do IQ tests very well, it's just that they abstract thinking developed differently, or not so much at all. On the other hand you can pick whatever person is shitposting on the internet, and he will probably show you an average IQ score.

This is true, I think that IQ tests are a little outdated because tons of discoveries in psichology fields afirming there is no only one kind of intelligence but many
(As Linguistic, spatial, logical, musical and interpersonal intelligence) and each one would require different approach in order to be tested on individuals.

So it's harder than that, an IQ test filter would be just unfair Tongue

This seems to be a somewhat elitist albeit humorous statement. It would also require some sort of certification and to tie the themes of our boards into it, something like EVT which has tools to check the validity of certificates, could be helpful?

Intelligence is problem solving skills... this has nothing to do with linguistic, spacial, musical or social skills... these can all be measured separately

Why would you try to lump all these other things into intelligence?  Are you trying to give everyone a participation trophy?

Not everyone is intelligent... sorry, not sorry

Some say intelligence is being book and street smart, what i like very much. Still, this definition does not really include some aspects of the working memory, logic reasoning or processing speed, which are in my opinion the "inner" or innate intelligence (still, it is possible to train those).

But you name it yourself, intelligence is problem solving skills (which is imo not limited to logical or mathematical reasoning). Besides the IQ, isn't someone intelligent, when he knows how to set up a strong and useful network and how to interact effectively with it?

Look at the Wechsler Test (WAIS), one of the most frequently used intelligence test, which well includes spatial and linguistic components! Those components (among others) are combined to a general intelligence, similar as spearman already described it a long time ago with his g-factor theory!

Welp if only people with high iq were the only ones alive in the internet, it would be a bit too boring now wouldn't it? Although the idea is bad, using IQ tests is a little bit uhmmm meh? It's a bit subjective to use IQ tests made by people to measure us. If it was made by aliens then maybe.

I propose under "Merit" we add a category "Tardness" and start each poster with an appropriate amount that he may TARD others as seems appropriate.

I think most of the "unsafe" fake news and other false information, bullying, scams, child pornography, sexual predators, illegal content and offers are not necessarily coming from not-intelligent individuals or groups. I suppose that stuff like this coming from smart people is even more dangerous, since it's "packed" smarter and the danger behind is less evident.

On the other hand, if there would be less stupid people falling for all those mentioned traps, it would still make it safer in terms of there would be less of those successful activities. Clearly, this is not to manage with an IQ test imo.

There should be better training for everyone how to use the internet, how to asses the credibility of information and where the dangers and risks are and so on!

I agree with this as it is indeed that IQ tests isn't always right as sone people perfoms well or smart in life even though their IQ tests were significantly not good. Thus, we should also see beyond the tests that we take as sometimes tests really don't determine how we will be in the future.

I see nothing wrong with having curated parts of the forum where a user has to first prove they are smart enough to post.


We can name the board "Condescending Corner (or CoCo)" and leave it at that.

Maybe the test can be to write a quality essay with good grammar and minimal spelling errors and to solve a few mathematical problems.

I actually wonder what that board would look like.
