    I love personality tests, iq tests and all the rest. I read that the average IQ of a pharmacist is 120+. What do you all think about this?

    *Disclaimer*

    I know that the iq test doesn't account for study habits, motivation, or determination. So chime in little savants!:)

    School teachers and pharmacists on the same level..hmm. Not at all from what i've experienced. Teaching seems to be about one of the easiest majors.

    I took one in high school and got a 120. Wonder if it is higher now...one of these days I'll take another one. People ALWAYS tell me their IQ is like 140 or higher...I'm like ooookay ;)

    I wonder what the source of this is. Maybe this is from when it wasn't a PharmD requirement. But I'm sure it's just all made up anyway. :shrug:

    Do you have to pay to take a test to determine your IQ?
    Why would you, what does knowing your IQ do for you?

    Priapism's IQ is so high, it has to be expressed in scientific notation. At least that's what I imagine he thinks to himself as he looks in the mirror...brushing his teeth...calculating the best angle at which to manipulate his brush for maximal plaque removal. Because he's that damn smart. :thumbup:

    Teachers aren't measured by how smart they are, they are measured by how well they convey the information to the students.

    I had a math teacher in high school who was ridiculously smart, I mean, we were wondering why this guy wasn't in some top university doing research on mathematics. But he wasn't too good at getting the information across to us.

    In his classes, basically only 2-3 people got over 90 while most people failed.
