In brief: Not available

IQ tests were developed initially to predict schooling success in individual students.
It is a measuring tool like a yard stick. There is no treatment to change an IQ just like there is no way to change an adults height. You are what you are by this measurement. It does not measure many talents that can lead to success in arts or entertainment. It does not say you should not try.

In brief: IQ

Please make sure your IQ is being measured by an individual IQ exam, not simply the book and answer sheet version.
Then you will know what sub-categories are strong or weak and can go from there. An educational psychologist would be the type of professional to see. You may be very smart in some areas and not so much in others.
