Tests prove that Linux users have higher iq than other OS's

It's obvious really, when you think about it, isn't it?

What about if you have Linux, OSX and a Windows computer, is the IQ cumulative or just an average of the three?

Your IQ is your IQ. If you choose to use Linux, then, on average, your IQ is higher than somebody that doesn't choose to run Linux.

I'm still left wondering...
I bought my first PC in October 1998, it ran Windows. In the same month the following year I installed my first Linux distro. Did my IQ predispose me to choose Linux, or has it jumped following my Linux experience?

Your measured IQ is not stable; it increases throughout most of your life but the increase varies according to your circumstances and it can decline when you are under severe stress. It is more likely to increase when you are receiving stimulation that encourages mental exercise and those who have stimulating experiences in mid-life are more likely to show a greater rate of increase into old age.

So, on the one hand, those who only use boring Windows computers are likely to be in a less stimulating environment and so have a lower rate of increase while, on the other, those who are used to having stimulating experiences are more likely to seek out new experiences and to have a slightly higher rate of increase.

Using Windows can certainly cause stress, so that part fits.

Windows 8 and IQ

Postby AgeGap1 » Fri Aug 02, 2013 9:14 pm

Using Windows 8 on a non touchscreen device is similar to those brain training games. Just sayin'.

Example ---> See how simple it was!

You must be one of those people who devise the IQ tests for the rest of us to struggle with. :wink:
