Re: CORRELATION BETWEEN IQ AND MENTAL ILLNESS?

I think there is a correlation. if you're strange when you're a child you tend to see the world in a different manner, to feel detached from others and therefore to start *thinking* (in the attempt to solve your problems). on the other side if you feel connected with the rest of the world (mom and dad and so on) you have no need to wonder yourself about anything.

also the opposite seems true. if you're very clever people will find you strange (most people have an average IQ, by definition) and that could bring mental problems.

I wouldn't talk anyway about IQ (127 and 170 and so on). That is in my opinion just a number to indicate how good you are in solving IQ tests. the score depends on a bunch of factors: mood, motivation, self-confidence, to say any.

When I was at high school I was very emotional and if I had been obliged to make a test the result would have been surely poor because I had trouble in concentrating on a task. When I started university and clomipramine my score was more than 165. So am I clever or am I dumb ?

To complicate the picture ... I felt dumb when I was on clomipramine while sharp when I was off !
