    After sitting down at my computer after being released from the hospital after a car accident I found that comment very offensive.

    Kids just don't know how to take it easy with bumper cars these days...

    It came from SOMEWHERE. Many Asians are hard-working but from my observations, the majority of them are considered intelligent by the standards of Western society. My best friend thinks she's "average" and has a 90-something average. >_>

    DE is right (that's why she is my mommy, she is teh smrtz), in every stereotype lies a bit of truth.

    it's because a higher percentage of asians go to college and make the most out of all the races.

    Tests are useless. Don't give us number grades anymore! 100's and GPAs should be thrown out the window! Disregard my SAT, AP, LSAT, MCAT, IQ, and anything else.!

    Thank you for understanding.

    Sincerely,
    Your favorite student."
    Im talking about IQ tests not tests that measure your understanding of a subject or memorization skills.

    I think that they should take my IQ and SAT scores into account.

    IMHO i believe that IQ is overrated,i think that every one is equally intelligent,and that the only difference between one person to another is they're acquired knowledge.So to be more specific,i don't believe in the "some one is naturally smarter than some one else".If you want to be good at some thing just work hard at it,and if some of you are good at it without much of an effort than it must be that you previously acquired some experience in some thing that you did that must of been related to what you find easy.

    No, it's because our parents whip us if we fail. Getting a B automatically makes you the shame of the family. And they want us to succeed so they can brag to everyone about what a great student you are. I think that to asians, money defines intelligence. Most want to be a pharmacist or a doctor because it makes tons of money. My doctor makes money but she SUCKS at being a good doctor.

    I think IQs are a decent (albeit imperfect) indicator of intelligence.

    It really depends on how you classify intelligence. If we are talking about IQ, then it might be possible to measure it, although the accuracy of IQ tests are questionable.

    If we are talking about academic grades, then no, I don't believe that grades can determine your intelligence, I don't even think they give a correct indication on how well you understand a subject, all they mean is how many answers you got right on the test day. My step sister tends to get good grades in school, but she is still an idiot (no matter how many times you tell her not to do something, she does it anyway, classically when you tell her something is hot she will always try to touch it).

    If we are talking about logic and common sense (which is what I define as intelligence), then no I don't believe it is possible to quantify intelligence.
