The Theory of Conservation of EQ and IQ

Discussion in 'Psychology' started by Duref Mudgins, Nov 7, 2012.

  1. I am over 156 years old, so I beg your forgiveness if I am not up to date on the current crack-pop psych literature. I am still trying to understand my own works. After all these years, I keep asking myself "What the fuck did I mean when I wrote that?" Especially when I read myself in English mistranslation. Stanford-Binet I sort of get. EQ I think is an absolute shit-crock, but I will go along with the gag. Here is my hypothesis: like beauty and smarts, EQ and IQ are not equally distributed. They are a zero sum game. I don't understand why all EQ tests don't score 100 as lame-assed like IQ tests do, but if they did, I propose that the sum of average EQ and average IQ is 200. Got a 115 IQ like me? Well, dickwad, your EQ is probably 85. Got a 200 IQ? You must live on a remote mountain top. You certainly don't have to worry about women bothering you. Not only are you too smart, you are uber-obnoxious.
