Well, there is actually really no absolute way. An ignorant person may think that there is a correlation between ones IQ and their knowledge. But there is no such thing. Knowledge and intelligence are two different things. IQ has nothing to do with knowledge, memorized things, or what you know. There is a difference between knowledge and intelligence. Intelligence, you are born with and knowledge can be attained and accumulated. Knowledge is what is learned rather than intelligence which is what you are born with. A person with an IQ in the genius range can actually get bad grades, and fail school. The difference is a person with greater intelligence has the greater potential and understanding. We can see and understand things that others can't. We can figure out a problem simply by looking at it and find out alternate ways to solve a problem and find a solution by using logic. There could be a college professor with a mere IQ of 102 who got there by studding and memorization, while there is a janitor, with an IQ of 160 in the genius range, and you'd never even know it. We often think for our selves and come to our own conclusions rather simply accepting what the crowd tells us and following in the pack of sheeple. We are often introverted, lazy, social outcasts, and suck with people and society in general. Due to our way of thought and lack of understanding people, we often don't fit in. This has been my case, but of course it varies per person and not all of us share these traits. Unless you can somehow get into someone elses mind, there is no way of knowing.

honestly, IQ only measures logic and not intelligence. The people who usually have a very high IQ are high-functioning people, such as people with autism. They have amazingly high IQs. But you can tell if someone has a high sense of logic, just by their tone and choice of words (if you were to just hear them speak). Eg. if you just met a person, and they are being courteous, intuitive, listening, and not judgmental - they may have a higher IQ rate than a person who is constantly self-centered, interrupting and judgmental. things like that set the smart people and the 80% of idiots in this world apart.

I was given one when I was 6 by a neighbor's boyfriend who was working on an advanced degree in psychology. It was 138. I took another one several years ago and it was 129. I wasn't told the specifics on the individual scores, but I can tell you that most likely my verbal was high as well as the short term working memory. The abstract reasoning was probably middle to average. I'm sure the visual/spatial sucked because I just can't see those things. I'm an Episcopalian.

Scot Originally Answered: In India after high school we have 10+2,here in US what is after high school?
A lot depends on where you live. When I went to school in Chicago there was Primary (Elementary K-7) and Secondary (High School 8-12). In Los Angeles when I moved there it was Primary (K-6), Junior High (now called Middle School -- 7 - 9) and High School (10 - 12). They have since changed this and made Middle School earlier and High School earlier. 14 Year olds now go to High School and 11 year olds now go to middle school. As pointed out you have to choose in High School and your last two years of work reflects on college entrance. You are expected to have a B or better average in 11 and 12th grade in a "college" major. A "college" major generally requires much more math, usually Algebra (through level 4), Geometry (1 and 2), Trig (1 at least) and for Science bound students Calculus or Math Analysys. Foreign language may be a requirement (level 2), but some schools have dropped this demand. Social studies is a higher level, dealing with Government or Contemporary American Probles, Economics, etc. College majors are encourged to participate in school functions, such as Journalism, Theater, Student Government, Broadcasting or Sports. Science is a higher level with Chemistry and Physics (both require math levels before taking these). None college majors can graduate school with less classes. They can get shorter days because you don't need as many points to graduate. You need only highschool math, high school general science and high school general history to graduate, plus some electives in technical areas like electronics, auto shop, plastics, art, music. Manditory eduction exists to grade 10 (age 16), however you can continue to grade 12 (age 18). Such education is free (public). Those wanting to go to college generally take one or both tests: SAT and ACT. SAT test costs money to take ($150 to $300) it is an all day long test in three sections. Math (adding to calculus), written comprehension (you read things and answer questions about what you read) and now they are requring an Essay (write what you want on a topic they suggest). 1300 points is considered very good on the SAT. I think 1600 is maximum. 1400 or 1500 gets you almost an automatic seat on many big colleges. After high school you can go to a JC (Junior College or 2 year college) which is an extension of highshcool. Small classes, teachers a tad better than high school, but not full professors. Low cost. It's about $100 - $200 a year to go to a JC, where you can become qualified to be a Nurse, LAb Tech, Actor, Filmmaker, Medical Technician or business person. There are also State Colleges which will take any students who are state residents with a decent High School GPA (C+ average or better) or a 2 year JC degree and the SAT doesn't matter much. These cost more (upwards to $2,000 a year) are harder than a JC, classes are larger (often in auditoriums for History, English Grammar, etc.) and more impersonal, but the instructors are higher ranking, some doing research and writing books. Here get a BA (4 year degree), MA or PHD. India sends many students to the higher ranked state colleges free of charge. Such as SUNY, UCLA, U Texas, U Montana, Univ of Illinois, Univ of Indiana. Private colleges cost an arm and a leg ($15,000 a year or more), they require a B+ average in the last two years of High School and a good SAT score. India sends many of it's top students to schools like these free of charge. I'm talking MIT, CIT, Harvard, Yale, Princeton, STanford, Regent, Cornell, USC, Northwestern, etc. Some graduates are looked upon with great honor or respect because of where they got their degree. Doctors and Lawyers from Harvard, Yale, NYU, Columbia, Univ Chicago, UCLA, USC. Scientists from MIT, CIT, Cornell, Harvard. There are exceptions to the rules and sometimes 15 year olds go to college full time. Generally, however, a MEdical Doctor or Scientist graduates and goes private after the age of 28 to 30 and with a total of 20-24 years of total schooling. The average Dentist, Doctor or Lawyer is generally $50,000 to $100,000 in debt to student loans, unless they have a rich family or get scholarships.
