Journal Journal: What the point of high IQ? 3

I generally score in the high 150's on most IQ-tests, depending on spread ofcourse, but I allways end up above the genious level. My question is, WHAT'S THE POINT? I don't seem to do anything better than most other people exept the IQ-tests.

Ofcourse, I don't have any problems learning new things, and I easily understands new consepts, but still, I don't feel that I do this very much different or better than most other people I know, and if this is what's being smart is all about, what's the point about having a score that doesn't really seem to tell you very much about the person in question?

I have started to feel that the whole IQ-thing is just a system designed to give a few people the chance to brag about being smarter than everyone with a lower score. Ofcourse, it's great knowing that I have a high IQ, but what's the point if the only thing that it relates to in practice is solving IQ-tests?
