Intelligence isn't measured in numbers. IQ tests are highly unreliable and dont cover the full breadth of how humans think. A person can be very quick to solve word problems and equations but know nothing about growing a garden. Ben carson can be a brain surgeon and also believe the earth is 6000 years old and that Joseph built the pyramids to store grain😒 Basically no number put beside someones name on a test is going to affect whether or not i find them attractive.
It's nice to challenge when girls can speak to intelligent men who share the same intelligent as herself. It's refreshing and fun to date an intelligent guy.
You have to be smart enough. To enlighten me in an intelligent conversation I need something to thrive on
Thanks for most Helpful Award
I never asked, but probably averaged 1+ std dev.
Thanks for the MHO
Have an opinion?
I voted C.
IQ is overrated I want a woman with a good moral compass and good manners.I am probably around IQ 100 give or take. I met people who are way more intelligent than I am but useless. So its how you use it, rather than how much you have
@Guardian45 People who obsess about IQ aren't using all of their cognitive ability. Cognitive capacity is important, but cognitive ability is way more important.
I really don´t know nor do I care... Would I date a person I thought was a raving, stupid moron? Nope - not again- but to use IQ as a dating benchmark, well... in my opinion. that is a giant step closer to just replacing our species with AI and same us the trouble...Intelligence is a very complex thing. There are many things, many ways to be intelligent. Some of the most annoying people I have ever met is actually people with very high IQ´s (which they often don´t ever fail to mention having). Some I have met is - in my terminology - very one-sided, somewhat conceited and often self-righteous as fuck... but luckily, people are different, every one unique in itself. My ex wife had an IQ well above 160, and yes, in some ways she was smart as fuck... but in other aspects of life, well, she was really not. No one can be good at everything. I am around 140 myself, but I lack certain very basic skills, like tying a knot - even the most basic. I cannot wrap my head around it. I would never be able to kill myself by hanging, simply because I am incapable of making a noose... just to add a little perspective. In terms of things THAT basic, even my 6 year old son looks at me like I am retarded :) I will, however, say this: A level of IQ below the ability to write and spell your own name is simply too low.. regardless... :)
I wouldn't base it on IQ, but I wouldn't date some who wasn't curious and didn't have the desire to learn.
Wit , intelligence and personality outshine IQ BUT I agree to sustain quality conversations over the long haul, in a prospective mate; IQ has bearing.Totally agree with you , even spoken / conversational English is important for me.I do find it a challenge to determine their IQ. Unless on a date it’s more spent at a library with coffee and numerous IQ quizzes
I don't have one. As long as she at least had a high school understanding or at least close to that. IQ is rarely if ever a factor for me
Difference between intelligence and wisdom. People can be as intelligent as they like, dosen't mean they are wise or have common sense
Exactly. More people need to learn this lol.
LOL, I don't have a minimum IQ. I don't know what the IQ is or was of any human I've ever met. I don't care about her book smarts but that she has common sense.
I'm not sure how these numbers look in real life. But intelligence is sexy. However, IQ is but one form of intelligence. There's social intelligence, emotional intelligence, intuitive intelligence. I could care less whether my partner knows advanced calculus. I DO, however, care that she has a curious mind, and enjoys learning new things, having new experiences, expanding her worldview. Rigid, inflexible mindsets are worse than having low intelligence. Some very smart people are very "baked in" with their view of the world, and their experience of life, and won't accept any new stimuli or information that challenges them. Big turn off for me. I'd prefer a moderately intelligent girl with high social acuity, emotional intelligence, and who has a flexible, growth-oriented mindset
I voted 80, but I would date someone lower than that. As long as I like them and they can carry on a conversation that's good enough.
Iq scores are simply a numver for people to brag about. As long as you can talk, write and understand simple concepts its more about who they are as a person.
Most people with low IQs struggle to hold intellectual conversation. Without trust and communication, you have nothing. In my twenties, I dated a model and after six weeks, I had to break up with her, as it felt like I had a pet rather than a significant other.
Not sure about IQ but he needs to now the difference between they’re/there and their and use them correctly lol
And I meant *know 😂😂. Whoops
I wouldn't put too much faith on IQ. Somebody might have average IQ but they can be intelligent in different ways. Somebody could be very artistically gifted yet have average IQ.
None of them really apply because most and the vast majority of people here never took a professional IQ test that lasts hours.Most IQ's of those respondents here are probably those resulting in a "serious" online test that is done within 10 minutes and that has no scientific base to sustain the results achieved.As for me, an IQ on your list of 80 is good enough, knowing that the number is irrelevant because it is not based on standards that were defined by a panel of scientists but rather on the online results achieved and the disparity of results is not an indicator on how intelligent a person is. So many factors need to be considered for a reliable result to be a significant indicator.I did not vote for any letter.
Intelligence was never a criteria for me, but I value a passion for learning, I know people who don't know that much, but want to learn, and that's awesome. Being either ignorant by choice, or worse, too arrogant to learn is terrible.
Some people are a lot brighter and more interesting than their IQ score would suggest, others a lot less. It doesn't matter that much. I don't even know my own IQ.
130, lol!!! All I care about is if she follows the word of God... the word of Jesus... that is in the KJV bible!-By the way, all IQ tests are pointless crap
Meh there's more to intelligence than your IQ score...
Really? HAHA! I never consider IQ test in dating criteria. I thought having degree or master was enough lol!
I don't usually administer IQ tests when considering women to date.
As long as they could pay the bills and take care of themselves I don't mind if they're a little slow but I do prefer intellectual curiosity & introspection, which isn't always measured in I. Q.
20 to 1 says most of the respondents believe their IQ at least two standard deviations higher than it actually is
Idc about IQ but if they can't talk correctly i may have to rethink the relationship.
As a hopeless romantic, I demand that women score at least 115 on mandatory IQ testing prior to any commitment towards our first date.
IQ is a made up number based on specific skills that dont matter when it comes to relationships.
The minimum IQ I would consider dating is probably 115~120.Traditional intelligence is strongly indicative of what the person is like, what values they hold and how they think."Personality" is tied to your degree of intelligence, bigotry, religiousness, conservatism, prejudices, rigidity and inability to base your views on reason rather than emotions are all traits rooted in lower cognitive abilities.An unintelligent person is a bad person, there is no such thing as a dumbass with a "good personality".
It's not a factor I take into account in dating. Like how would I even know their IQ? Not exactly the kind of thing you can ask on a first date without looking like a weirdo xD
Too 'dumb' did not work; I had tried.Slightly less … talented... is ok when her personality compensates. 90 and more will be fine with me.
You're on a completely wrong track. Communication, at whatever level, is more important. I'm sure people with lower so-called IQ can be excellent conversationalists.
I wouldn't even consider it because IQ is full of shit.
I don't even know my IQ. As long as she can keep up interesting or deep conversation that's good enough for me.
Loll I don't even know my own IQ... But I guess something similar to me😅
130 iq minimum for dating xD oh my gosh a few people seem not to know what 130 iq means :D they'll stay single for a long time.
130 is the top 2%. They tend to date each other. I work in a building full of the top 2%
@slatyb yeah I'm willing to believe that. I'm not willing to believe that so many people who are that intelligent are on gag, voting in this question, making up 13% of the survey answers xD
Whatever is required for her to be able to hold an interesting conversation with me.
No preference, if they're a good person IQ doesn't matter to me
For real. Like we are at a place now where we are going to ask prof of IQ. ? I can tell you that it wouldn’t be you.
100 because its average. Im not concerned about iq, i want someone who has life skills not just knowledge on paper.
I’m at around 147. Hopefully, I find someone around 120 or more. Doesn’t have to be but it would be nice.
Iq tests are kind of dumb honestly they don't prove anything lol
she would not have to be a genius, but she would need to have interests and be interesting to me.
90 because that’s where my IQ is at. I want a woman who has that IQ or higher.
Some girl whose at least mature level my IQ was 95 at age 21
I chose high cause I ain’t gonna be the smart one in the relationship for shore
It would be cute if she's a bit slow. I would rather have someone smart tho.
as long as he got a dick, can provide, is christian, is a man and not an idiot. im good
manly***with a college degree
Good points, but I think you shouldn't expect others to provide for you though.
@PrettyRegular Obviously I'm gonna have a job but it's nice to know that he can pay my mortgage or can pay my meal
Well anyone can buy a meal, but I think he wouldn't sort out your mortgages. Those are big investments.
@PrettyRegular i would like for my husband to pay the mortgage. i like for a man to provide and make me feel safe.
someone doesn't have the IQ of a kids cereal box, a happy meal box, or a sand box
Any haha. But if he doesn't know what 7/3 is... goddamn.
I'm really not bothered, along as they can take care of themselves there is nothing wrong with it
If she has a functional pleasure nervous system that's good enough for me.
That's not how people talk in terms of dating.
I dont care about how smart someone is
Average IQ and EQ
You knew the 79 rule😆Ms Bloom...
Nothing below average.
7 inches or higher.
Well... they do say the seat of intelligence in a man isn't his brain
i'm too short :(
100 is average for a white girl so yea
Of your choices, 130
How are you going to tell, give her a test?
