    The IQ test was designed to help identify children on the low end so they could receive extra help. Higher scores are mostly meaningless. If you spend time with Mensa members, you'll see the proof of this.

    Let your self confidence come from actions that successfully benefit others, not from beliefs that you're better than others.

    @Kunlun Is that an actual proverb or did you just make that one up? Because either way, it made my day.

    I made it up, you might like Shantideva's Guide to the Bodhisattva's Way of Life (the Dalai Lama and many others have commentaries that serve as good introductions).

    Something something about people bragging about their IQ scores and those who understand what they stand for.

    All jokes aside, and I was making an effort at levity above, IQ is just a measurement like any other— subject to skilled interpretation. It's honestly cool that you qualify for Mensa if your OP was sincere, but while the boost in confidence is always well-deserved, don't let a number on a page influence your perception of personal worth; you're more than that.

    Here's another proverb for @songmic's day... It's not how big it is it's what you do with it that counts.

    Sorry I can't match @Kunlun's literary flair and wisdom on this occasion!
