I self tested at 138, and felt I'd been very lucky with the problems/questions.

Are I.Q. tests supposed to be stress tested or something.............?

I mean, if our ability to score high 'marks', was in anyway reduced under stress, That would effectively mean that a person's I.Q. drops under stress.

My novice historical impression is that "The Renaissance" took a general reduction in stress levels to will into being "The Enlightenment".

I've just realised, that makes me sound like a Nazi Scientist.

niiice BrainScore norman, wasn't Einstein a 130'er?

Not sure if they are stress tested, I imagine doing either extreme and drawing an average would be the way to go seems reasonable enough.

started looking into trends, I don't know how but i ended up with this graph..



i love SOME graphs, this one tells a very interesting story, Italy has shed some blood in its time, lot of people needed "silencing" there, more than anywhere else combined coughpopelizardparasitecough cough  Nailbite

Even without the curious bumps, that 'all falling' graph is spectacular.

Of course, what classified as data is a whole other study.

lol too true brother, wouldn't surprise me at all to find the Italian figure higher, with the Vatican possibly never bothering to record murders of thousands of women for example.
