quote:Originally posted by simeonieI know it is weird. I have taken a couple more tests. One was 169 (I think that is tooo high) and another that was 135, around 135 can't rememeber the exact number.Iq tests though I think only test how good you are at taking Iq tests. There was a topic not long ago about Iq tests.----------------------http://www.simeonie.co.ukCheck it out. Click on the forums
quote:There are many standard IQ tests in use around the world. On most tests, average IQ is 100, but some tests give different numerical values to the level required for entry into Mensa, in the same way that the same temperature is expressed by different numerical values on the Fahrenheit and Celsius scales. One way of comparing scores from different IQ tests is to convert them to a ranking, or percentile, score which tells you in which band you fit. A percentile score of 99% means that you are in the top 1%, a percentile score of 98% puts you in the top 2% and so on.
quote:You suggested that musical ability was associated with wider artistic ability
quote:but there are also people who have a propensity for music and the sciences
quote:Einstein was quoted as saying “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music”
quote:The body-kinesthetic, I would separate out into reaction speed and reaction accuracy. My own anecdotal observations lead me to believe that reaction speed may be related in some way with IQ (many IQ tests are time limited, and maybe speed of thought and speed of physical reaction are interrelated).

quote:This concept is called "redundancy" and is found throughout the nervous system.
quote:In the study, the researchers "switched on" p25 at will in the brain's learning and memory centre, the hippocampus. In these mice, they found that switching on p25 for only two weeks boosted learning and memory compared to normal mice. But if the p25 was switched on for six weeks, mice displayed impaired learning and memory in tests. Physiological studies showed that these mice showed significant brain damage and lost nerve cells in the hippocampus. But those who had elevated p25 levels for just two weeks had no such effects. The researchers concluded that short-term production of p25 boosts learning - but long term exposure affects the ability to form new memories. The researchers, led by Dr Li-Huei Tsai, say the study suggested that the protein was normally beneficial, helping form memories and enable learning. But if there was too much p25, perhaps because of other changes in the brain linked to dementias, nerve cells can die.
