What is an IQ (Intelligence Quotient)?

An Intelligence Quotient, or IQ, is a measure of what psychologists call our "fluid and crystallized intelligence." Put simply, an IQ test measures your reasoning and problem-solving abilities.

What is Your IQ? 

Does it really matter?

Rarely

IQ, or intelligence quotient, is a measure of your ability to reason and solve problems. It essentially reflects how well you did on a specific test as compared to other people of your age group. While tests may vary, the average IQ on many tests is 100, and 68 percent of scores lie somewhere between 85 and 115.

While IQ can be a predictor of things such as academic success, experts caution that it is not necessarily a guarantee of life success. Sometimes people with very high IQs do not fare so well in life, while those with average IQs may thrive.

IQ Vs. Character

What really matters the MOST is your character.  Are you honest?  Are you a thief or liar?  Are you kind?  Are you cruel?  Are you good?  Are you evil?  These things matter.

Character is far more important than talent.

A "talent" is a gift, is it not?  You are given gifts, but character is developed.

You may not be so "gifted" intellectually, but you can develop good character if it is important for you to do so.

What you know is not nearly as important as who you are.

Give me a choice of choosing people with a high IQ or people with great personal character and I'll choose character over IQ 100% of the time.

Intelligence Vs. Morality

Which is MORE important?  Is being "smart" more important than being "loving?"  Really "brilliant" people can also be "brilliantly evil."  Keep this in mind, because many are.

What is Morality?

Morality is the ability to discern between right and wrong and good or bad behavior.  As human beings, we have a "built-in" sense of morality - the ability to intuitively know right from wrong.  Our human conscience plays a role in this.  Unless our conscience is "broken", we typically will feel badly when we have violated our own sense of right and wrong (morality).  Our culture (what is accepted as moral) also plays a role in the external development of morality.

Give me a choice of associating with smart people or good people, and I'll choose the good people over the smart people 100% of the time.

Reasoning Vs. Intuition

If you had to choose between being able to reason or being able to sense right or wrong or good or bad, which would you choose?

Intuition is the ability to understand something immediately, without the need for conscious reasoning.

What do you do when faced with something where you are presented with what appears to be equally weighty "pros and cons."  How can you KNOW?  Who do you believe?

Go with your gut.  You'll be right most of the time.  It is God-given.  You have this if you will use it.  Don't ignore it.

You don't have to be able to put your finger on it to know a thing.  Your "gut" will tell you.

Give me a choice of superior reasoning skills or faithful intuition and I'll choose intuition 100% of the time.

Law Vs. Liberty

Must we always obey the law?  Of course not.  For many "laws", I see them as "general guidelines" and I pay attention to stay close within them.  (I may exceed the speed limit a bit, and sometimes I have exceeded the speed limit by more than a bit and have been fined for it.)

If I drive recklessly, however, and endanger another person (and am aware of this), I have broken my own moral code (I have sinned).

If I believe that NOT wearing a mask is equivalent to attempted murder, and I refuse to wear one ... then I have attempted murder.

I have been accused of this, and so have you if you are not wearing a mask in public 100% of the time.

I do NOT have the liberty to hurt someone else.  Period.

Autonomy Vs. Tyranny

Well, I suppose now that I will be revealing my personal political persuasion.  I lean libertarian.  We have been subjected to the SLOW CREEP of tyranny for decades via government overreach.

Tyranny is cruel and oppressive government rule.

Cruelty

Our government has been imprisoning people for doing things that should have never been against the law and/or imposing sentences that are insane for "non-violent" crimes.  President Donald Trump (thankfully) has been commuting the sentences of these people that have been subjected to previous government tyranny.

Oppression

We are subjected to LAWS that our founders would have NEVER dreamed up.  It is so strange, but they believed in we should have "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

  • It is a federal law that we must wear seatbelts and use special seats for children.  I agree that this is usually a good idea.  I disagree with it being a law.  (I would do it anyway)
  • You cannot smoke or allow smoking tobacco just about anywhere.  I am not a smoker.  However, if a business owner wants to allow smoking in their establishment, the government should NOT care.  (I won't go there, by the way, because I don't want to be subjected to the nasty cigarette smoke.)  I disagree with it being a law.
  • I don't need the government's PERMISSION to open and business.  It is none of their ******** business!  This is overreach.

Masks Mandates - Cruelty and Oppression

It alarms me how so many are NOT alarmed about this!

How is it CRUEL and OPPRESSIVE to MANDATE mask wearing? 

Thanks for asking!  We are in the throws of MEDICAL MARTIAL LAW.

  • It threatens my very LIFEI cannot SHOP without it.  I cannot OPERATE MY BUSINESS without enforcing it.   If we don't stop this, it is going to get a whole lot worse.
  • It infringes upon my LIBERTY I am being CONTROLLED.  It is NOT about heath and that is OBVIOUS!  Stay home!  Close your business!  Don't travel!
  • It denies my PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.  I am typically not a person that becomes depressed.  This is DEPRESSING!  Think about how you are feeling.  Are you happy with this?  Does it matter?  Our founders (and initial government) actually wanted us to be happy.  What we have now is UNHAPPINESS.  Who is causing this?

It's also Alarmingly Biblical, is it not?

That "LIFE" part of "LIFE, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness."  Wear the mask or else you cannot buy or sell?  This sound Biblically familiar to me.  (Read the book of Revelation and learn about the mark of the beast).

 

The Constitution made a provision for our liberties to be ended during a contagious outbreak.
I think Benjamin Franklin saw this coming!

Benjamin Franklin looks DISGUSTED in this painting of him above.

He would be DISGUSTED with what we have allowed to happen as Americans!
