IQ TESTS EXPOSED! Why IQ is overrated and why it does not measure your intelligence

Have you noticed wherever you go people start talking about how smart they are because of scoring high IQ scores… well.. to me. this is B.S!

IQ DOES NOT MEASURE YOUR INTELLIGENCE!

YOU HAVE YOUR OWN UNIQUE INTELLIGENCE!

Most IQ tests are based on GENERAL KNOWLEDGE, spacial recognition, mathematics!! etc. This does not necessarily measure how smart you are.

BUT WHY?

Because I personally believe that no man alive can put you in a box! or limit your abilities!, in other words, god’s creatures are immeasurable, you can give a proximity on something but you can not put it to a limit (I’ll discuss this topic on another post). Can you count how many stars are there in the sky? can you have two people with the same finger print? Did you know that if you take two new cars straight out of the factory – exact replicas – race them together and there has to be a car that is faster than the other! even if it’s a small fraction! although both of the cars are the same in model in make in year in everything.

Now, if two cars are manufactured with delicate precision are not the same, then how can an IQ test convince me that our intelligences are the same? – complex creatures like us – are the same??

Being a General Knowledge-geek does not mean that you are smart

Henry Ford was the founder of Ford Motor Company. He was the founder of the modern assembly line used by factories worldwide. He was also an inventor, and holds 161 patents. While building an automotive empire he became one of the richest, most well-known men in the world. One day he was accused of being stupid and ignorant, so he sued the newspaper that gave him these accusations.

As quoted from Napoleon Hill’s book – Think and Grow Rich, here is what he said:

“If I should really WANT to answer the foolish question you have just asked, or any of the other questions you have been asking me, let me remind you that I have a row of electric push-buttons on my desk, and by pushing the right button, I can summon to my aid men who can answer ANY question I desire to ask concerning the business to which I am devoting most of my efforts. Now, will you kindly tell me, WHY I should clutter up my mind with general knowledge, for the purpose of being able to answer questions, when I have men around me who can supply any knowledge I require?”

YOU ARE SMART!

Yes let me repeat that sentence again.. YOU…..ARE….SMART!!!

You should find what it is that you are smart at.

“Everybody is a genius. But, if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it’ll spend its whole life believing that it is stupid.” – Albert Einstein

It really makes me sad when I witness young kids and people with high potential claiming that they are not intelligent, smart because of a low IQ score.

Find what it is that you are smart at because god has given you a unique gift which no one else has, just like your fingerprint.

All the best.
