I just took one of those online IQ tests that bombard you from pop-up windows. And the same thing happened tonight that happened when I took the IQ test in kindergarten: I got bored with the more mathy questions and picked answers rather arbitrarily in order to move on.

Predictably, I suppose, I got the same damned score exactly as I did at age 5. At least I'm not any dumber. But I haven't become a genius either, sadly. . . :-(

I know how flawed traditional IQ tests are, so I'm processing the experience with the salt shaker ready for action. Still, the profile generated from my test results fits me pretty accurately:
Your Intellectual Type is Insightful Linguist. This means you are highly intelligent and have the natural fluency of a writer and the visual and spatial strengths of an artist. Those skills contribute to your creative and expressive mind.
Why don't they just say that I'm terrible at math?
