John Sununu is not just smart. He is one of those ultra-high IQ people. He's been officially tested to have an IQ of 1 in a million. His IQ is over 171. He's a member of the Mega High IQ Society. Only a handful of people are in that organization.

As a kid, my parents had my IQ tested. They have NEVER told me the results to this day (I'm 46 now).

Based upon results on standardized college entrance exams (PSAT, ACT, SAT, GRE); my IQ is likely above 99.9 percentile.

I have never bothered joining high IQ societies. I have never bothered getting an accurate assessment of my IQ. Neither seems all that important.

Besides, I know people who test very low on IQ tests who I consider "smart" . I also know people who would like get a higher IQ than me that I consider dumb.

I like associating with people that can look at a situation and develop a completely different but plausible assessment of what it means than I would.

For example, epona tests as a pretty normal IQ but a very high EQ (emotional quotient) intellect - this enables her to pick up on all sorts of things that I miss. This is one reason I like her :)
