My IQ last tested at 160 (I say "last tested" because, before I went on a year-long LSD rampage, my IQ was "last tested" at 140, lol). The LSD/IQ connection that has definitely shown itself to be true for me makes me think that it could be a two-way street for many manics, schizophrenics, and other of the more colorful, eccentric people amongst us. I would definitely be curious to see how long-term psychotic breaks affect intelligence, considering the vast improvement in my logical and abstract thought processes that's occurred due to LSD. I might even go so far as to say that it was LSD that greatly diminished my symptoms of ADHD, which were unbearable until I started dropping acid. Then again, I also blame the drugs in large part (not necessary just the psychedelics, though) for exacerbation of my anxiety disorders.

I certainly agree that high intelligence can and does often cause mental difficulties as well, though. I know I tend to overanalyze things and make mountains out of molehills on a daily basis. Even with medication, I still do it -- but I'm not bothered by it.
