  1. Does anyone know the all time record?

    Apparently 2% of people who have Down Syndrome have a version of it called "Mosaic Down Syndrome" where they still have the physical appearance of a person who has Down Syndrome, but they on average have I.Q.'s that are 20-30 points higher than the average non-mosaic Down Syndrome person.

    I could only find one actual firsthand account of a guy who had tested a guy who had Mosaic Down Syndrome, but apparently the guy was tested 3 times, and got I.Q. scores of 110, 94, and 84. The tester said he thinks the reason for the more than 20 points of variation in scores between the 3 tests was the mood the guy was in (as in, he tested better when he was in a good mood and wanted to take the test than on times when he was pissed off and didn't feel like taking an I.Q. test).

    In any case, that's an average I.Q. of 96, which is only a hair off from being as smart as the average person, and he had a peak I.Q. of significantly above the average human.

    This is MUCH higher than I had ever realized people with Down Syndrome could have.

    And I strongly doubt that this guy had the highest I.Q. of a person with Down Syndrome in the world, considering this was just a random guy that the tester tested. It's not like he was the highest scorer on a list of 10,000 people with Down Syndrome that got tested or anything. So there are probably people with Down Syndrome that have an average score of well over 100, and peak scores that would be legitimately in the "smart" range.

    I also did not realize that the severity of retardation caused by Down Syndrome can vary so much. Apparently the average I.Q. of a person with Down Syndrome is somewhere in the 50ish range, with most scoring somewhere between 25 and 70, but it isn't like almost all score around 50 with a few outliers hitting 70 or above and a few outliers hitting 25 or below, but rather, that most of the scoress are all over the place, and 50 just happens to be around the average if you average it all out. The standard deviation is apparently ENORMOUS.

    Interesting.
  2. Did you also know that people with downs have straight pubic hair? For some reason my high school psychology teacher told us that once and I've never forgotten it.

  11. I would assume the percentage is higher than that of people who care about this topic in general
  12. One of the special boys from that Johnny Knoxville movie, who was recently on Rob Dierdek's Fantasy Factory, is awful witty for someone with downes syndrome. I'd look into that.
  13. What is your IQ Bfucker? I think you might win this...
  14. Im beginning to think BFACTOR may have some stiff competition for who has the higher IQ
