Andy Warhol 86 IQ? Aug. 15th, 2011 @ 09:26 AM Reply

So I saw in some retarded internet IQ quiz some people's IQ's. And there was Andy Warhol's there, he had a score of 86.

Is there anything backing up this? I mean, did he even make that IQ test?

Since I like most of his stuff, I find it hard he had such a low score. Even though I don't really believe you can truly measure someone's intelligent with such a test.

Thoughs?

I don't really care about IQ , it's just another thing to brag or bitch about for people .

I don't think IQ tests are a good way to measure intelligence . Some people may be talented in their own area besides knowledge

"his" stuff, right

he was a well known associate of many great artists, but unfortunately he wasn't a great artist himself

his primary gift was passing off the art of his associates as his own

danny williams and paul morrissey were no doubt thousands of times more creative than warhol and they were simply exploited by him

warhol just used people, as is evidenced by the complete lack of mourning when he lost people he "loved"

Wikipedia says:
IQ is the most researched approach to intelligence and by far the most widely used in practical setting. However, although IQ attempts to measure some notion of intelligence, it may fail to act as an accurate measure of "intelligence" in its broadest sense. IQ tests only examine particular areas embodied by the broadest notion of "intelligence", failing to account for certain areas which are also associated with "intelligence" such as creativity or emotional intelligence.

So you can rest easy again. :P

I wouldn't care too much about "IQ" anyway. The way I understand it, those IQ tests are altered every few years. Since the average IQ is ALWAYS 100 the tests (or the results?) have to be altered that the average will be 100.

Also, remember Kim Peek? He scored above 200 on certain fields, but on other parts he scored below average (87).

Didn't know about the changes every few years.

Look up the drawings and paintings he did before he became famous. He was a fantastic artist and illustrator.

warhol just used people, as is evidenced by the complete lack of mourning when he lost people he "loved"

He employed people to work for him in producing his artwork. This is not something new for a commercial or fine artist to do. He held control over his work in the same way that a film director controls the film they are making.

I'm wondering where you got this from. Do you have any articles, sources or anything that state this?

You're going to have an IQ of 86 to think this is art.

Well, it could be untrue that his IQ is actually 86.

His 'art' is utter crap, I'm surprised it's that high. Here's a blue image of Marilyn Monroe, here's an orange one, here's a purple one, here's a yellow one... GENIUS.

having an intelligient quotient of 86 is not that bad. the result places him at the 16-17th percentile among the general population.

two things i am sure a lot of people know is that different IQ tests usually yields different test scores and that success depends on much more than intelligence alone.

A not to everyone -- IQ tests online are so full of bogus horseshit that no one, and I mean no one, should ever take their claims seriously.

According to the internet, Miley Cyrus has an IQ of 150.

They make this shit up to get you to click on their website.

I don't put much by iq tests; I've never taken one myself, and feel that everyone has their own areas of expertise, so should not be put down for a lower score.


Pm me for a pleasant conversation or for help with anything.
Thanks to JebbaL for the awesome sig.

His art and the creative processes involved in producing it were a commentary on the consumerist, mass-production lifestyle that the U.S. had embraced (and still does).

Before Warhol, there was commercial art and fine art, and they never crossed paths. He made fine art in an entirely commercial manner; screenprinting and production lines an so on. He was throwing America back in its face.

Andy Warhol died in 1987. The Internet as it is known today began to take shape in the 1990s. He would not have taken that IQ test. He may have taken a real test, though.

The measurement of intelligence itself using an IQ test is very controversial. Experts can't agree on its usefulness and the general consensus is that intelligence is more difficult to measure than a simple number. Intelligence is not limited to one thing. There are multiple types of intelligence. Someone may be a terrible mathematician, but a great writer or may be amazing at logical problems, but hardly able to speak.

A simple IQ test is one-dimensional while true intelligence is three-dimensional, if it helps to think of it like that. Nearly everyone is proficient in a certain kind of intelligence and none are intelligent in every way, although Leonardo da Vinci was the closest to earning that title.

That being said, attempting to measure three-dimensional intelligence with a one-dimensional test loses the little credibility it did have when it is taken online on websites which attempt to lure you in by telling you the supposed IQ scores of celebrities.

Exactly, I did a research paper on him last year and his contributions to Art, Music, and Movies.

As far as his actual IQ goes, he never had the best attendance at his schools, which probably left him lagging behind most of his classmates. That being said, intelligence boils down to a lot more than just Maths and Sciences. He had emotional intelligence and a creative outlook on the world, and neither of those can be accurately measured.

IQ measure your ability to analyze things and use logic, if you score bad all it means is that when the test was taken you weren't that analytical, or logical.

you can train you logical skills.
