There is God's IQ and there is man's IQ! God's people are the smartest, most courageous people in the world. Because God is. And we know what's important. Number 1 that there is a God. Number 2. That There is a heaven. Number 3. That there is a devil. and number 4. That there is a hell. If you know these things, then you can boast of being smart. Otherwise, you can boast of being a fool, my freinds. And to say otherwise, you are mocking my God.

Darlene-1 -- If somebody tells me, "I couldn't care less", I know what they really mean. I'm a bit of a stickler at times, though (my mother was an English teacher)
---Donna66 on 3/29/10

Interestingly, there is no adequate instrument available to measure real intelligence. They are all culturally biased in one way or another. God uses the unlearned or simple to confound the "wise". I would rather call myself stupid than to brag about my wisdom. The wisdom of man is foolishness to God.
---jody on 3/29/10

Donna66 thank you,its kind of you to say you're sorry,but there is nothing to forgive,I took no offense of any kind. I was just pointing out things aren't always what we may think they are with a person and they really do care. I just don't like labels of any kind,my feelings are there is no such thing as an all,which they indicate. Its really no problem and you do have the right to say whatever you think. Alls well. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 3/29/10

Darlene-1 ---Forgive my use of "careless". It was a play on words. I meant no insult. I'm a Texan, too.

Alan of UK noted that many people (Americans) use "I could care less" as if it means the same thing as "I couldn't care less". They are opposites.

"I could care less", means you DO care, (if you didn't, it would be impossible to care less). But however much you care, you admit that that your caring might be decreased for some reason.

Saying, "I couldn't care less", means, for you, the most extreme degree of NOT caring possible.

Both expressions are correct. But some people use one when they really mean the other. That's what I was trying to say.
---Donna66 on 3/28/10

It annoys me when people ask me things like:
"Can I lend your pen?" to which I ask "Who to?"... It's almost as bad as someone asking to borrow a tissue to blow their nose... Don't worry, you can keep it!
---simon7348 on 3/29/10

Donna66,you wrote people who say "I could care less" are careless is not correct especially "they don't pay attention to their speech". My words and speech mean a lot to me but being a Texan some of the things we use aren't used in other places. Consider this,a person says "I couldn't care less" to me it means no matter what happens they can't care any less than they do right then. I see "I could care less" as declaring I can care even less than I do right now. Could is the past of can. So it's a matter of personal choice,in what one wants to show,not correctness for one or the other.
---Darlene_1 on 3/28/10

Alan of UK-- your comment regarding "couldn't care less" was punlished.. Americans who care about the meaning of language never say "I could care less" ....meaning virtually the opposite of what they intend.
But "could care less" is a common error by the careless. They don't pay attention to their speech so they "couldn't care less".
---Donna66 on 3/27/10

Simon7348,when you said nurse a baby,I knew what you meant,but also it made me remember what the women of the South and Texas called it,"nuss" a baby,do you want to "nuss" my baby, meaning "to hold". Another one is "tend to" same as take care of. Southern slang is really a coloful language but it would take some getting used to. You can find Southern slang on the internet,if interested.
---Darlene_1 on 3/26/10

I posted this before, but don't think it was published'

In the UK we say "I could not care less"

Americans say "I could care less"

I'm glad we have here a blog where our differences are discussed without people becoming angry and accusatory!
---alanm8566_of_uk on 3/26/10

Another area that our language differs can be in meaning (I've mentioned this elsewhere). For example, consider the following conversation between an Australian male and an American female nanny...
AM: Would you nurse my baby for me? nurse=hold
look of horror on face of American
AM: Oh don't worry, I'll do it!
look of even more horror on the face of American

Same word, same spelling, different meaning. Talk about Babel ,-)
---simon7348 on 3/26/10

Alan8566UK thanks for the information. It really does get a wee bit complicated. It looks like the Americans unknowingly went back to the Latin to spell favor. America also has very different ways of saying things,to Texans,depending on what area of America one is in. Their accents can be very distinct and heavy. Boston Massachusetts people take words like "idea" and say it as "idear",adding an r after a vowel if the next word begins with a vowel. People do find a way though to communicate whatever the difference. God Bless
---Darlene_1 on 3/26/10

Darlene ... The word "harbour" or "harbor" derives from the old germanic word "herebourg" .... so what versions there have been since then, who knows?

The derivation of "favour" is from the Latin "favor"

The original name of Bristol was Brightstowe.

Bristolians tend to add an 'l' sound after vowel sounds at the end of a word ... So "idea" "carburetor" "marina" become ideal, carburetal and marinal.

A Bristolian with a full accent would probably not be understood within the sound of Bow Bells.
---alan8566_of_uk on 3/25/10

Just for information,I looked up the British spelling on harbor and favor in the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary and the "u" between "o" and "r" is how its listed by them. Webster has both forms if you know what to look for since the two different forms are not together. I now have checked the Oxford Dictionary Online and it has favour with the "u" between the "o" and "r",below favour it has US-favor,same for harbor. Alan I still haven't found the original spelling in Old British English for them. Ha Ha,we humans are so funny,thats a lot of time used looking up words when it doesn't really affect us or matter that much to anyone in the big scheme of life.
---Darlene_1 on 3/25/10

Donna ... Yes I knew about Websters, but I'd point out this is an international forum.

Alan,I know in England they speak a different language,for instance..They put on their "titfor and go down the frog and toad for a cup of the old rosy, my old china"! TTFN!
tit for tat=hat
frog and toad=road
rosy lee=tea
chna plate=mate
ttfn= ta ta for now!
If you were born within the sound of Bow bells you don't need translation.Right Alan?

Alan of UK--Merriam-Webster is considered the standard for American English, and probably always will be. While most Americans prefer American English, the Oxford is never considered incorrect.

Alan of UK -- The Merriam Webster is the standard for American English, but while (or whilst, if you prefer) this is true, the Oxford is never considered incorrect.
---Donna66 on 3/24/10

Cliff ... Merriam Webster? In the UK we go by the Oxford English Dictionary. That's from Oxford, the oldest English based university in the world (although Cambridge might argue about that!)

Darlene ... Don't know about the "our" that's not original spelling. I suspect "or" is just as close to the original.

1st Cliff,Alan is so right. Many of the words we spell with "or" on the last syllable such as harbor,are spelled with a "our", example,"harbour" ,"favour",etc. in British language. Americans do have a record of shortening words or worse yet making slang out of them,for instance yep for yes,nope for no,which also vary in different parts of America. American language changes may not always be classy but they sure can be interesting.

Alan, It shows you can't trust authority,"realise" is not in the Merriam Webster on line dictionary!

"What's a iq?"

---1st_cliff on 3/20/10

Elder's question would be more difficult (or easy, you decide) in England, because it would depend on whether the pound of butter cost 4 pounds a pound.

And I wonder whether you can answer this ... If it takes two men a day to dig a hole, how long would it take one man to dig a hole?

That I suppose depends on whether it is a whole hole, or only a half hole.

Ugh.... if I cut a stick of butter in quarters does it really make that stick worth a dollar?
---Elder on 3/19/10

Is this an IQ Question? Let's see: If one quarter of butter is .25C and you have 4 quarters, how much is 4 quarters worth?

If 4 quarters make a stick of butter, how many quarters make a half a stick?

If I have 4 quarters and one quarter drops on the floor and I step on it and slip and break my arm, is the stick STILL worth a dollar?

Sounds more like the math problems we all hated in the 4th grade.

Yes (there are different levels). And yes, autistic people people may be quite inventive (perhaps because they perceive things differently than the rest of us, and may see new uses for common items).

I know of a young autistic farm woman who began raising pigs as a teen. She has invented, and patented, a new kind of enclosure for pigs that is selling well. She travels to County Fairs and Likestock Shows demonstrating it. She lectures on pigs. She has written a book on pigs. She's considered an "expert" on pigs and farmers seek out her advice on breeding, feeding and raising piglets.

She's quiet, and not especiaslly outgoing socially, but she is a resounding success in her one narrow field.

Ugh.... if I cut a stick of butter in quarters does it really make that stick worth a dollar?
---Elder on 3/19/10

Athiest, I too read. Thanks. I think though that autism is totally different in nature then what we are talking about here. My understanding is in Autism, the person is not able to do more than memorize what has already been said or sung. Has anyone ever heard of an Autistic person inventing something never before invented, or writing an original song. Writing a story or book?

Or maybe there are different degrees of Autism. It is true though most Autistic people have that one thing that makes them unique.

Interesting discussion. When my daughter was in college, studying education, she called me to ask what her IQ was. I told her it was high average. She asked why she did not have the high IQ like her two brothers who are around 160. I told her that as a teacher, I would rather have a classroom of students like her, with her work ethic and good behavior, than half a class of gifted kids like my sons, who rarely did homework.

Praise God, she and her one brother both graduated from graduate school on the very same day, in different states. IQ tells me a person's intellectual potential, but there are so many factors that go into a person's academic achievement.

Many, many children with ADHD have hi IQs,I think our awesome God knew they would need them to learn anything in life with that handicap.
---Darlene_1 on 3/16/10

Darlene_1 this is so true. Many people with Specific Learning Disabilities also have very high IQ's.

But the IQ tests I'm familiar with have nothing to do with what you know, it's how you reason, giving patterns of things and then you try to conclude a pattern, either with numbers, shapes etc.
---kathr4453 on 3/16/10

IQ,intelligence quotient,is the number used to express the intelligence of a person which is based on the ratio of the mental age,on standardized test,to the real age times 100. It can also be determined by taking a standardized intelligence test compared to the average performance of others of the same age. Also it can be measured by ability or a persons knowledge of a specified subject. IQ tests are really about what a person has learned or knows in their age group and as a person learns and retains more the IQ can increase. Many, many children with ADHD have hi IQs,I think our awesome God knew they would need them to learn anything in life with that handicap.

A graduate of MIT, and written up in Who's Who, and the Congressional Records in Washington for his contributions to Nuclear Energy and a Nuclear Engineer. He was actually only 1 of 4 men in the USA at that time.

My son also brilliant was a challenge, and still is in his 30's. Forgetful as Einstein, with no common sense. However, was teaching himself foreign languages from 1st grade on. He's lived all over the world, and is now a Missionary in China.

Once had a college roommate that fell into depression and felt that he was not very smart.

He went down to the college guidance center and asked to take an IQ test to confirm what he felt about himself.

The counselor simply asked him what IQ he wanted as there are a multitude of different IQ tests that he could take - some that would give him high IQ, others very low.

My son(he is superintendent of a large school system) has an IQ of 153 to 156. Has been tested numerous times and belongs to(honorary) organizations that demand high IQs.
He did not study very much and he holds a doctorate of education. Yet the only thing that I can tell is different for him than you and I is he never forgets anything. He does not have to write down telephone numbers merely remembers them. He has been offered numerous positions(especially by the United States government) in which he can make better use his fantastic memory than what he's doing.
He is very happy in his work and in reality as far as I can see he's just coasting. And that is my IQ story!

Mackey, what is your SPIRITUAL IQ? Do you have the mind of Christ? Spiritual knowledge is about Jesus Christ. It isn't even measured by taking any tests to score your intellectual understanding of scripture? That Knowledge is revealed to those in the Body of Christ, the world even with the highest IQ would call nonsense.
---kathr4453 on 3/15/10

While some may be viewed as genius in some areas of study and very deficient in other areas, an IQ test simply reveals an average.

Christians should strive to develop as high of a score as possible when it comes to the Word of God to be better equipped to perform in those ministries the Lord has called them to.

So take some formal course work, debate and interact with other Christians, and read as many books (and commentaries) as needed to gain an understanding of Gods word.

There are far too many pseudo Christians today that tell you not to read commentaries, books, etc. as they believe if you are obedient to them, it is all you really need. Such in my opinion are false prophets and possess the spirit of the anti-Christ.

IQ tests can produce very misleading scores.

The culture of upbringing and life exposure of the person being tested has a lot to do with the score.

If you took a child out of the jungle and a child raised by urban professional parents in the suburbs and gave them standard IQ tests the scores might be drastically different with the more intelligent child scoring lower even.

In other words, privilege and upbringing can stack the deck.

My IQ is high enough to know IQ doesn't mean a thing in the scheme of living a productive life. There are many factors which make a person with a High IQ an achiver based on IQ coupled with application,determination and ability. There are many people with a High IQ who have never done anything note worthy in their lives. A Psychologist wanted to prove the importance of IQ. His son who was worked with,taught and did have a very High IQ which showed all of that in his early years of life but he wound up making his living as a conductor on a Streetcar completely contented. The main thing a High IQ does is help a person in their studies. It doesn't mean they will do wonderful things in this world,very,very few do.
