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

Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don't feel so stupid or dead,it's not your fault

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.
14 Mar 2018 16:43 - +137
Well, 99.9% of sheeple are morons; I’ve been tested and verified to be in the 1% who are not morons.

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."
14 Mar 2018 16:44 - +100
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.
14 Mar 2018 16:48 - +76
I agree. I would never boast about my 240 IQ. It's just tacky.
14 Mar 2018 15:20 - +55
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.

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.

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.
14 Mar 2018 17:33 - +30
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.
14 Mar 2018 15:38 - +23
I know all the letters and can writ most.
14 Mar 2018 18:48 - +16
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.
14 Mar 2018 17:43 - +13
Pfff i scored a perfect 100 on my IQ test.
14 Mar 2018 17:53 - +12
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 Mar 2018 17:43 - +10
He probably had no idea what his 100 meter sprint time was either.

I think it fits more into r/Murderdbywords than here.

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.
14 Mar 2018 18:46 - +6
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.
14 Mar 2018 18:25 - +5
There's a difference in between thinking IQ matters and boasting about it.
14 Mar 2018 19:40 - +5
IQ does matter. It gets a bad rap because idiots take Facebook IQ tests and then boast about the results. Or think that having a higher IQ means that people with a lower one can't be smarter. It's important in the world of psychology though.
14 Mar 2018 18:55 - +5
Well my IQ is 999+ because I watch Rick and Morty.
14 Mar 2018 19:49 - +5
My genius was verified by the Texas Institute of Intelligence, which also conferred my Ph.D for only $999. Who else but a genius would find such a bargain?

Indeed, peoples who brag about their IQ mostly do so because they don't have any real accomplishment to brag about. That doesn't mean IQ doesn't matter. It does matter in certain fields, it matters less in others. Just like physical fitness matters if you want to become an athlete. But the biggest difference with IQ tests is that there are very few athletic peoples who would brag about being the fittest person in the world without ever entering a competition.

What Hawking said: People who **BOAST** about their I.Q. are losers What dumb people hear: I.Q. doesn't matter If you were smarter, you could see how those statements mean completely different things.
14 Mar 2018 18:50 - +4
I agree it's silly to brag about your IQ, but it can actually tell a lot about where you'll end up in life and various other life traits.
14 Mar 2018 16:03 - +4
He's not wrong
14 Mar 2018 19:22 - +3
I watch Ron and Maxy so my iq is very high.
14 Mar 2018 18:32 - +3
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?
14 Mar 2018 19:24 - +3
Instead of bragging about iq I just tell people I watch rick and Morty it's equivalent to going to Harvard
14 Mar 2018 17:57 - +3
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

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.
14 Mar 2018 17:31 - +3
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.
