An IQ of 142 is classified as 'very superior intelligence.'
It means that you have the potential to be capable of processing
significant amounts of information faster and more accurately than 95%
of the people that you will come in contact with in your lifetime.
Please notice the word 'potential'. Having a high IQ does not mean that
you are guaranteed success. Many people with high IQ's struggle with
life because they process things differently than most people and
therefor have trouble relating to those around them.
One of the best examples I have heard regarding this type of situation
was from a professor of mine at Colorado State. She stated that someone
with a high IQ must work twice as hard as a person with an "average" IQ.
Why? Those with higher IQ's grasp concepts that normal people can't
comprehend. Therefor, we must work twice as hard to find a way to explain
what we have grasped in a way others can understand. Throw a learning
difference like ADD/HD in the mix and you have someone that not only can
process information at a ridiculous rate, but can't explain how he/she
got to the conclusion.
Another problem with having a high IQ at a young age is that curriculum
is often designed to target those closer to the mean IQ range of 100.
High IQ individuals are able to "skate" by with minimal effort which
does them no good in life after school. A high IQ without a proper
education is like a modern supercomputer running Microsoft Windows 3.1.
