btw Bobby Fischer (a famous chess player in the past) had a IQ of 187
the IQ meter as we call it here is just a series of questions and answers that would measure the level of detail that our brain is willing to go to. not like a tacho or something like some one right fully pointed out.
if you need to know more of this it's available on the net with some real authentic sites. haven't spent time doing it, so can't recomend any.
but that one had me laughing. .

its ok if ppl have gud IQ
but wats important is where they channel their IQ
Einstein had close to 130 i m sure, but he used it to max. in science field and came out with big theroies.
wat i mean 2 say it if 1 has an IQ of 200 and does nothing but sleeps n watchs TV, then he no better than 1 having an IQ of 130

i cant find that IQ thread you were saying , can any 1 help me find it.

AvinashKeezh : I know how they do an IQ test. :-)
My previous post was tongue in cheek for amit1101 who thinks there are indeed "meters" and that Einstein only had a IQ of 130.

amit1101 :

"As far as we known today, Albert Einstein has never done any IQ test. Thus his IQ is unknown!

In the 20ies scientists had tried to estimate the IQ of deceased personalities such as Mozart (1756-1791) and Goethe (1749-1832) by means of biographic data; thus they wanted to estimate Albert Einstein’s IQ, too. The value estimated for Einstein was between 160 and 180. But this rough estimation can not count as Einstein’s IQ!"
