    I failed

    It can be devastating when not being used to failure. If you coasted through high school and early years electives at university, then not meeting the bar is really awful. I was very close to failing some math classes myself and having barely passed still was very disenchanting. I think the...

    Your IQ & Occupation

    Completely agree. You could be smart, but if you are lazy, unmotivated or just don't care to strive hard for your goals, then you will not produce anything tangible. I merely understand this as a potential you have. Ability to solve difficult problems pays in this world but if you don't work...

    Your IQ & Occupation

    IQ has lots of worth according to the research I read. It is one of the most important discoveries about humans that we've made. The correlations between GDP per capita, individual major choices and income are significant and tightly corresponds to my experience of smarter people than me indeed...

    Your IQ & Occupation

    Having been an objector to IQ tests for years, mainly due to my ignorance of actual real-world tests available, I found that IQ is one of the best predictors of life success. Knowing this information, wouldn't it make sense to test a school leaver's IQ, then they can make a decision of a...

    Hobby to replace gaming addiction

    If you have a non-PC gaming machine, just sell it. If you have a PC, try to get rid of all accounts you have. Then, first step is to clean your room perfectly. Then also try to clean up your house or flat. When you removed chaos from your habitat, then focus on the outside. A good way to...

    Your IQ & Occupation

    Honestly sounds about right. I worked hard in my degree but certainly not as hard as I could have. In other words, I could get a Masters degree if I really put in the effort but PhD would probably be difficult. I actually never wanted to go PhD route at all which probably indicates that my brain...

    Your IQ & Occupation

    Nice. It is indeed a tough test. I tried to spend less than 45 mins on it and did not know how many questions there are so got frustrated and bored at number 40 or so. I think this indicates my brain got tired at this point and I personally think I am more of 115 IQ or so right now. I have...

    Your IQ & Occupation

    There is a 52-question IQ test online that has a rather high reliability to professional tests. It mainly tests quant/visual abilities. It starts easy and gets really hard. The link is here: http://www.cerebrals.org/jcti/ WARNING: I did the test without knowing how many questions there are...

    What are some life lessons you've accumulated over the years?

    And in addition, if you are not thick, she will let you know if she likes you. Not verbally, but enough hints for you to act. Females choose the males, not the other way around, unless you're among top few percent of males.

    When did you realize that you are gifted

    I was best in my school and suspected that being good at stuff means I might stand out among my peers. Then I went to university and met a bunch of people who are as smart and even exponentially smarter than me. Since then, having my ego bruised, I accepted that in the end, the world has a...

    You know you're NOT INTP when?

    > You know you are not an intp when you think that grades show how smart you are. Grades show how smart you are. If you attend university worth its name, then it challenges the hell out of you and your results show how smart you are. Decision to not study 100% also contributes to your...

    Millennials are boring

    Kuu is right. Economy for us young people is one the major causes of grumpy behaviour. Example: London. You need to save for years to place a deposit on a shithole and then be stuck paying for that thin-walled piece of shit for 10+ years. In addition, here is 1+ hour commute for ya and shitty...

    Learning Investing

    I am grateful for so many new terms introduced. I will investigate all of them and as Architect said, pick my poison. I'm wondering whether precious metals are a good investment. They were always valuable throughout history while paper currencies collapse eventually. I personally do not...

    Learning Investing

    I am looking to learn investing. I am going into a job next year and currently read blogs like Mr Money Moustache about working, saving and investing. My goal is NOT to retire early because I find life without work to be unfulfilling and enjoy the grind. What I want, in my opinion, is to be...

    Doubts About Chosen Career

    I recognize that having a job and not liking it too much is hell a lot better than not having a job or being stuck in some retail position. I highly appreciate the fact that if I push through and prepare for interviews, work hard, I should be employed in the industry. However, I feel uneasiness...
