I know what you mean... the day I got mine I went to my husband, "Holy Halelujah! I'm a Genius!"

"Yes dear."

I love that he just agreed with me and didn't ask me what brought me to that conclusion.

well, okay... but only because Wyndy vouched and I've always loved the quote you have on your posts... and I'll be waiting on your Mensa letter before I officially deny access to make believe genius land.

IQ is simply a number, right???
I don't really care for Mensa. I have found that most people who qualify only join for bragging rights.
Face painters, even those of the genius level IQ variety, are a whole DIFFERENT BREED!!!!! LOL
I rather enjoy being both a geek and an artist. I'm really more the "mad scientist" type anyway....LOL
It is often nice getting to use both sides of the brain....until the two sides decide to not get along....
That is where the "mad" part comes in....LOL

Oh, and thanks Wyndy for the shimmer powder brush compliment....I am finding I use them more and more myself....I am now up to carrying about 12 different colored powder brushes in my working kit.....and am actually using them a LOT.

Oh, and thank you JBax....I kinda love my tag quote too. I wish I could add it to all of my emails, but living in the Bible Belt has some disadvantages. Many people here would not find the humor in it. They would just assume I was a dope head (LOL), even though I have never even smoked a cigarette.

Well... I actually have a genuis IQ but it doesn't get me any better jobs than not having it.

Although being able to say I was in the 98th percentile worldwide on the tests is kinda cool but doesn't seem to impress people the way I think it should...

What is genius level? I was tested in high school and it was 145 but no one ever told me what it meant! LOL

Of course, that was nearly 30 years ago so I'm sure it's gone waaaaaayyy down since then Sad

IQ Scale

Over 140 - Genius or almost genius
120 - 140 - Very superior intelligence
110 - 119 - Superior intelligence
90 - 109 - Average or normal intelligence
80 - 89 - Dullness
70 - 79 - Borderline deficiency in intelligence
Under 70 - Feeble-mindedness

Normal Distribution of IQ Scores

50% of IQ scores fall between 90 and 110
70% of IQ scores fall between 85 and 115
95% of IQ scores fall between 70 and 130
99.5% of IQ scores fall between 60 and 140

Low IQ & Mental Retardation
An IQ under 70 is considered as "mental retardation" or limited mental ability. 5% of the population falls below 70 on IQ tests. The severity of the mental retardation is commonly broken into 4 levels:


50-70 - Mild mental retardation (85%)
35-50 - Moderate mental retardation (10%)
20-35 - Severe mental retardation (4%)
IQ < 20 - Profound mental retardation (1%)

High IQ & Genius IQ
Genius or near-genius IQ is considered to start around 140 to 145. Less than 1/4 of 1 percent fall into this category. Here are some common designations on the IQ scale:


115-124 - Above average
125-134 - Gifted
135-144 - Very gifted
145-164 - Genius
165-179 - High genius
180-200 - Highest genius

140-145 is generally considered the starting level of "genius" with higher possible of course (up to 200). Being above 140 puts you in the top 1/4 of one percent of the population...

I did an IQ test in university for some kind of study, but I never got the results, so I don't know my actual number. It would be an interesting thing to know.

I refused to conform to the tests & instead filled in the bubbles in patterns(just to spite them:-)
