  •  Here's the thing about IQ tests (3+ / 0-)

    they ahve their limits...my son has Asperger's. He can do math easily and can hit it out of the park on standarized math tests. Ask him what he would do in an emergency, he says call 911. Ask him the follow up, he has no answer. This is one of the questions asked on an IQ test. One Aspie kid i worked with looked at the psychologist and said hewouldn't call anyone else; he'd already called the professionals, let them handle it. The proper answer is to call 911, then tell somebody.
