  1. Can't live up to the expectations of others

    I'm sure many people here have experienced the content of the title at some point or another. I remember a conversation I had with a "friend" some time ago (few months in the past). This person has a masters in some physics related field and is somewhat formally educated in educational...
  2. Do you have intense interests that you can't escape from?

    I have certain interests that I can't escape from, some are academic, such as histories of particular cultures, medical knowledge, psychology, etc. I find I have intense compulsions to study these subjects even when I should be focusing on school work. Beyond these interests, after a seemingly...
  3. Spatial IQ tests and practice affect/effort

    http://www.queendom.com/tests/access_page/index.htm?idRegTest=1118 My most recent score on this spatial test is "average." However, I have tested much higher on verbal and memory abilities (mainly verbal) on official tests. Anyway, this actually surprised me because when I took this awhile...
  4. Do you care what others think of your intelligence level?

    Well, do you? Social reality seems to be the only reality most people care about, after all.
  5. Have you ever realized a negative pattern in yourself?

    Well, have you? I definitely have had such revelatory thoughts, but to be frank I haven't done much when I've had these realizations. I know I need to change my behavior to achieve success in a variety of areas. Any thoughts in general?
  6. Working Memory and Academic Prowess

    So, I've been diagnosed as having ADHD, and it really isn't a leap of inference to think this mental ailment can cause poor working memory (alternatively, not being able to pay attention long enough or in depth enough to properly insert moments of significance into memory). It's also been...
  7. Social Phobia

    I've probably stated before that I have severe social phobia. As an example, when registering for college, I signed up for college classes, citing temporary transportation issues as my reason. I honestly don't know how to get over this behavioral...monstrosity that has taken over. I feel...
  8. Suicide and Cognitive Deficits

    http://www.thelocal.se/27034/20100604/ Interesting, supposedly study of a million Swedish men stated those with IQ in teens were at a greater risk of suicide later in life. And supposedly with a psychosis diagnosis those with higher IQs commit suicide more often than average. I'm just...
  9. What a crappy day

    The last day of my only college class was today, many of the students gave heartfelt compliments towards the Prof, after I finished my exam and made up a quiz, I was gone. On the bright side, my Prof left a paragraph at the end of my essay saying how good it was, but I left the class feeling...
  10. What can impair intelligence?

    I'm just postulating that there are a whole host of things that can impair intelligence. I'm sure there are plenty of psychiatric diseases and neurological that can cause this. Any ideas?
  11. I just found out I'm basically an idiot

    So, I took an IQ test recently (WAIS IV), and my official results were a 99. The psych said it wasn't representative of my intelligence, but I can't help feeling that it is. Most people's IQ don't really go above 10-12 points of their original score. Even though, my Verbal IQ actually turned...
  12. Had an IQ test Administered

    So, I just took an official IQ test, as the title entails. However, I did not take most of the supplemental subtests. From what I read, only the 10 core subtests of the WAIS count towards FSIQ, is this incorrect? Do the supplemental (like comprehension, and figure weights) subtests count towards...
