CityBoy,

What's your view on mediumship?

Do you think that the spirits of the dead (or ghosts) enter peoples' physical bodies and control them?

If you're referring to me, I haven't posted my IQ here nor have I even mentioned it.

I already used the word "ceiling" in the first paragraph. So I need to use a different word when I address it again.

How does a person come by that understanding? Isn't it through observing patterns and anomalies in peoples behavior? And isn't that essentially what's required to score high on an IQ?

Do you think "The Da Vinci Code" would have sold the 80 million copies it did if Dan Brown had an IQ of 85? I doubt it. It's clear he's a very bright guy. And I would argue that a...

spshane,

I didn't ask for people's opinion on the practicability of their IQ.

I asked if anyone was interested in finding out their IQ and sharing their result.
