IQ tests only show the probability that the person taking it has had a
white, anglo-saxon, protestant education through high-school.  The only
people who keep track of their IQ are people with high math skills and low
self-esteem.  The rest of the world has figured out that it makes about as
much sense as saying "they have a Love Quotient of 184 in their marriage".
