    He’s just jealous of my 237 IQ. Verified by three Facebook quizzes.

    Yeah well I scored Jon Snow on a GOT personality test I’m pretty sure that makes me a legendary warrior

    He outlived an illness that should have long killed him. He has shown the ability to perform amazing calculations in his mind. He used his amazing abilities to push science further than most could ever imagine. RIP

    Well, 99.9% of sheeple are morons; I’ve been tested and verified to be in the 1% who are not morons.

  8. MrsBoombastic98 March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    I agree. I would never boast about my 240 IQ. It’s just tacky.

  9. jacobelliott47 March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    I Just know that somewhere out there someone is saying,”If you don’t have an iq of over 200 then you shouldn’t be mourning Steven hawking.”

    I don’t feel *that* sad that SH died.

    I mean it’s always sad when someone departs from this world, and my thoughts go out to his friends and family who surely must miss him dearly now, but his death feels like a good end to a good life.

    I don’t know what his last time in life was like, but I do know that he kept on giving lectures well into his 70’s, an age when many perfectly healthy people put their professions aside for an autumn time of peace and serenity.

    Yet despite his illness and severe disabilities, Hawking didn’t just live way past his expected lifespan, he also *remained productive!* And not just any kind of career either, but as a successful phycisist, celebrated author of popular science, educator and lecturer. Again, this would be an impressive feat on its own, yet Hawking did this while having to battle obstacles like only being able to control a few muscles on his cheek!

    I think everyone, himself included, were well aware that death always lurked closer to him than most others. I’m happy for him, that he got to live for **76 years,** that’s a **full life** not too far away from general life-expectancy. And I’m in awe of what he managed to do with those 76 years. I doubt I will be able to show anything close to his record when I’m 76, even if I’m fully healthy.

    But he definitely did have a high IQ, and intelligent people in general do have high IQs. You can’t just say it means nothing. But he is right in saying that people who brag about their iq are losers.

  12. Av8ting March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    I know all the letters and can writ most.

  13. FredNietzsche94 March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    He said that people who boast about their IQ are losers. He didn’t say that IQ doesn’t matter. A century of psychology research suggests that IQ DOES matter.

  14. ramshot March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    Bragging about your IQ is like bragging about having a huge, high quality toolbox. Unless you’ve built something worthwhile with it, nobody really cares.

  15. thinkB4WeSpeak March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    I thought IQ tests weren’t able to test all knowledge. Once “the smart people” figure this out they’ll be out there making a new test.

  16. radioborderland March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    I totally get why people hate those who brag about IQ.

    But those in the comments denying the usefulness of it as a measure are just turning a blind eye. It’s true that it’s flawed in the way that you can practice getting better at them. But the research on it is very clear, it’s a great predictor of life success.

  17. WonderWheeler March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    I got a hundred percent on my IQ test. I think that means I got all the questions right, but I don’t know how I could have done that.

  18. wisty March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    If people who boast about their IQ are losers, what does that make people who subscribe to a sub dedicated to laughing at people who boast about their IQ? Meta-losers?

  19. Drasas March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    The moment I hear somebody boast about their IQ I typically write them off as a moron. My instinct has yet to fail in this regard.

  20. mocharoni March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    I’m looking at you, /u/the-realDonaldTrump

  21. DoxBox March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    IQ tests are a decent way to gauge the general intelligence level of children for the purposes of academic engagement.

    They’re not good for anything other than that.

  22. wifecloth March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    Don´t need to know my iq since i am not only the humblest fucking person i know and also got a high iq

  23. ZedsUnseenDong March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    15k people think they are smart because they don’t talk about their IQ

  24. digdug321 March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    “Very low IQ Steven Hankins doesn’t understand how to be a very stable geniu!!… SADLY SAD! I, also known as me, have TREMENDOUS knowledge of things that most people and many people don’t. Nobody says that… The crooked media never says that. Very unfair…!… Hankins wanted very much to work for me (everybody does) but this requires the highest IQ possible like I have… (99 out of 100 very smart!..) Too bad, gotta have the best!” – ???

  25. GlinkLegend March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    Im sorry, but IQ is actually a reliable a demonstrable test of intelligence. All the science and studies back this up, regardless of Hawking’s comments.

  26. PhantomTrouper March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    I’m not sure what mine exactly is, but it was OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAND!

  27. Damadawf March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    Lol, this seems to contradict that famous story about how he rushed to have an IQ test after falling and hitting his head while younger and in the early stages of ALS.

  28. Isoprenoid March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    Of course he would say that, he’s a genius, IQ doesn’t mean much when you’re at the top.

    It’s like if someone is super strong, they start saying “Eh, strength isn’t that important.” Or a rich person saying “Eh, money isn’t that important.”

    Of course it’s not important to *you*, but what about us dumb, weak, poor people?

  29. Twirlingbarbie March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    That why I never say mine. I was tested in the hospital when I was a kid because they were concerned that I either was retarded or a genius. I tell the story but not the outcome. If you don’t love the retarded me me, you don’t deserve the genius me assholes

  30. urabossofturd March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    I have a silly anecdote. I was talking to a psychologist about the difficulties of ADHD, and his solution to try to build up my confidence by telling me I was clever. So he did an IQ test, but he (underhandedly) only did the parts that I’d be good at.

    Tricking me into thinking I was clever seemed to be defeating the purpose.

  31. Maluko808 March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    Wait.. Stephen Hawking died?

  32. JurijFedorov March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    IQ does matter. It matters a lot. Just because people use it as a bragging tool doesn’t mean it suddenly has stopped mattering. Just like if people brag about their wealth it doesn’t make money useless.

  33. AllowMeToHelpPlease March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    As a great man once said: “Deeds, not words.”

    Hawking PROVED that he had a high IQ. I don’t know what his IQ was because I don’t *need* to know. The fact that even after reading *every single thing* he ever wrote, I don’t understand that crap at ALL….that tells me everything I need to know about where his is IQ probably was.
    High. It was probably freakin high.

  34. LuckyBdx4 March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    Someone should mention this to Donald Trump.

  35. babatomano March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    Well my IQ is 999+ because I watch Rick and Morty.

  36. TheSecondCore March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    And look where that got him


  37. velocity010 March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    This is more of a retort or even /r/antiiamsmart

    I’d say op is very smart for jumping on the Stephen Hawking karma train.

  38. LNhart March 14, 2018 / 11:51 am

    Yeah Stephen Hawking is definitely a great example of IQ not mattering much
