"Culture proud on the ignorance of math" I couldn't agree more!
I don't think IQ tests are necessary, and they don't really mean much to me. I don't know my exact IQ, but it doesn't matter when I can solve proofs off the cuff without looking at a textbook weeks after I've studied the proofs or that I can understand damn near anything by studying it on my own. I don't really care to apply a number to what I do. I just let my work speak for itself and let others judge me based on that performance. If anything, I need to stop stammering and stuttering in my math videos. lol
I've never taken an IQ test but I have seen some IQ questions. The questions I saw, were were of logic and pattern recognition. Maybe that is why Physicist, Engineers, and Mathematicians excel in IQ scores.
Have started on Baby Steps but never finished the anime :)
