It's now or never.
 

Knock, knock

There are far more stupid people than intelligent ones. A very sad fact, but we can't do anything about it. Since the earliest times it has been suggested that there were intelligent and stupid people in the world.* One can find many references to stupidity in almost every facet of life. Books, movies, the Internet, politicians - they all exude their own kind of dim-wittedness, in varying degrees. I believe that the last example is the paragon of all.

It's interesting to note that nowadays intelligence can be measured. During the olden days people didn't give so much attention as to their nuts, with the exception of those who were fully aware of their state. Then in 1905, a French psychologist named Alfred Binet became worried about those concerned - he can qualify as a philanthropist - he devised the earliest intelligence tests. From then on the tests were of good use to all humanity, but was brought forth to be subjected to investigation. Nevertheless, the popularity of Binet's innovation prompted William Stern, a German psychologist, to coin the term Intelligence Quotient, which is fairly used and abused from the time being.

Below 25 IQ … idiots
From 25 to 50 IQ … imbeciles
From 50 to 70 IQ … morons
From 70 to 80 IQ … borderline defectives
From 80 to 90 IQ … low normal individuals
From 90 to 110 IQ … normal average individuals
From 110 to 120 IQ … high average individuals
From 120 to 140 IQ … superior individuals
From 140 IQ onwards … very superior individuals; aliens

Just a piece of advice. Though IQ tests may sound so awe-inspiring, remarkable, and truthful, don’t be easily fooled by these things. Like horoscopes, they all wallow in the concept of Barnum effect, i.e. generalized descriptions and/or statements which are ambiguous in nature, and we tend to believe in them due to fallacies of positive instances. Also, it may be construed that these are somehow subjective in its sense, and some of the psychologist’s biases tend to be incorporated in conclusions regarding these tests. So before taking those tests, just take in to consideration these concepts.

By the way, there’s this online personality assessment test by Dr. John A. Johnson. Take time in answering any of the two. Here's the link for the shorter version.
