Adhd, anxiety disorder and mood imbalance. My psychiatrist said I was gifted although I have a relatively low IQ on test. Can you make sense of this?
Maybe: Although obviously figuring out a person based on a short question is not possible. But there is no reason that all of this could not be true of you. Iq tests measure only a few forms of intelligence, so it is quite possible to be gifted and have a relatively low iq. And adhd, anxiety and mood imbalance are pretty commonly overlapping disorders. ...Read more

I was given a crushingly low IQ score of 92 as a child. I have always wanted to become a pharmacist. I got an act score of 25. Is it possible to do?
Hard to say: The IQ test was originally developed as a rough predictor of success in academic settings. That single average number on your test does not determine how well you will do with the curriculum of college or pharmacy school. If you have the study habits and memory skills to master the course content, you can do better than some with higher scores that do not. Don't give up based on one test. ...Read more
Weird question. But medically relevant. Can fairly low IQ people have normal intelligence children? Not autistic/downs just lower IQ. Regularsmartkids?
Varies with cause: In some cases reduced mental function is caused by brain injury before or after pregnancy, alcohol exposure during brain development and or other issues which are not inherited. Some with low IQ's have genetic conditions that can be inherited. Down syndrome girls are fertile, and could have a normal infant (but also could produce one with Down syndrome with their expected limitations). ...Read more
Absolutely not: Iq has little, if anything, to do with adhd. If you are distracted or inattentive you may "look" like your IQ is "lower." but, this is only an illusion. The distraction of adhd causes you to perform poorly on common indicators of intelligence. "perform" is key. Your actual intelligence is not changed. ...Read more
