I know myself not to be the smartest guy in the room, but I'm definitely comfortable with my reasoning and thought process and all that. I got into an pretty prestigious school on a, and only on a, football scholarship, and I just take the basics and then some law classes. I've absolutely been called dumb my entire life by my parents and peers alike but it doesn't bother me too much anymore.

My girlfriend on the other hand is a straight up genius, she's like one of those math people and she's really into numbers and all. Her friends are all real smart people too. I was with her and her friends and her friend's boyfriends and we all took some IQ test and obviously I scored the lowest out of all of us, which I kinda guessed would be the outcome lol. It didn't bother me, I know where I stand, but they seemed to really harp on it and my girlfriend later told me that I had embarrassed her that night.

I have no problem with not being smarter or as smart as a group of math and science majors, and she says I should feel a little more shame in it. I work as a boat/yacht mechanic, and I'm pretty satisfied with that. Idk.

Not being a "genius" type doesn't equate to being stupid. You have different intelligences to them and that is just as valid. If they can't see that, then they are the idiots.

I agree that IQ is overrated. I abduct towel-heads that fail to teach religious tolerance. It's a depressing job.

You are very welcome. The abduction and elimination of 32 year old Australian sheilas like yourself is not difficult.

Good thing is different people are better or smarter in different things its not all IQ and one subject. My mom is very math and science but my dad is hands on mechanic/construction and there both successful in life just different areas.

There are different types of intelligence - not everything is based on IQ.

Also, seems really mean of your girlfriend to tell you that you embarrassed her just because of that. >.>

There are many types of intelligence. Can they rebuild a boat engine? People do seem to get snobby if their particular field is culturally considered 'higher' than yours, but that's all nonsense.

Intelligence in itself means nothing, it depends on how it's used. Your girlfriends and her friends are intellectual snobs: what sort of people do IQ tests for fun and then belittle the person with the lowest score? I wouldn't want to hang around with people like that and if your girlfriend was embarrassed by your score she doesn't deserve you.

You seem like a kind well-balanced person, which they are not, and I which type of person makes the world a better place and which does not.

If nothing else, allow me to say this and it comes from decades of real living experience (I am well advanced in years) that I have endured and observed. Intellegence measured, means absolutely nothing when it comes to living in the real world and contributing what one can. More often than not, those with a very high aptertude for a specific subject or career, more often than not, find themselves wanting when taken out of their specific field of intellegence and knowledge and fall short on the things that really matter in everyday life.
An I.Q. rating does not nor never will reflect the overall intelligence of one. I have come across some really 'so called' intellegent people with high paying salaries and really good at what they do. Take them out of that environment and try haveing a discussion, a conversation on everyday ordinary things and suddenly they are totally lost.
Be content and be proud of yourself, regardless of what others around you may think.

Your girl is projecting her own insecurities on you, so forget about it. Sheer intelligence, while useful, is hardly indicative of success in life. We all know the highschool genius who became a dropout druggie.
