The IQ criterion you mentioned measures raw speed of solving certain mental tasks (or it measures if the tested individual knows the tricks needed to game the test; or it measures the individual's conformance to certain unspoken world view standards). It does not measure how many ideas an individual has, or how useful those are, or how practical, or even only how imaginative. Or how good that person is implementing or communicating these ideas. Faster than 399 out of a representative group of 400, no more, no less.
Asking for a spectrum dweller might make more sense for you. That particular state of mind often goes along with a more permeable sensory filter, i.e. such individuals tend to perceive more details. Their brains don't discard as much information early on as irrelevant. Such individuals look at the same world as the rest of us, but see very different things. That can lead to novel approaches. That can also make it very difficult to communicate with those alien minds.
What you are probably dreaming of is a creative mind, an intuitive thinker, with disruptive but practical ideas. If you find one, be prepared to be intellectually challenged by them in ways you never imagined. You might end up hating this person, even though you love their ideas. Incredible as it may seem, but there can be such a thing as too many pleasant surprises.
(No, I am not a psychologist or neuroscientist. I looked into these topics at some point in my life because I had to. Ask a real expert if you want to learn more. If you are looking for company: good choice! You may be a stranger in this society, but you are not alone.)
For the record, I have no issue with these people wanting an iQ requirement for a position. I don't think it makes sense, but it's their right to do so.
What I do take issue with is what happened before with what I am convinced is the same group - namely they want people to send them applications containing personal information without identifying either themselves or their organization.
That is underhanded, sneaky, borders on dishonest, and strongly resembles criminal behaviour attempting to steal people's identities!!
Last time they made bogus claims about not being able to post more information because their ideas would be stolen
I'm sorry, but I am a Scientist. I have entertained job offers and been actively seeking work in my time on this planet.
make it a point to research ANY
company I am thinking of talking to BEFORE
we talk. It is critical to the process.
They may want to make sure their prospects meet their criteria, but they don't care at all about whether the same person would want to know more about them.
They wont even make clear if they want an Artist, a Programmer, or a Theoretician (or something entirely else) (or some combination). We have many people who can do all of those, some of those, or just one of those - and quite well at that. But these people show great reluctance to deal openly and honestly and therefore I strongly encourage everybody to avoid them and not to take them seriously until they show us some respect.
This is not the first time a very similar (or possibly identical) advertisement appeared here. If these are different people I would be very surprised.
That is why I went directly to sarcasm without waiting. I have no patience for such stuff.
If they wanted to be up front about things, they could have just done so. That said, it's not too late for them to start - no harsh actions were taken. No accounts limited or members banned. Just a merciless taking to task about the vagaries of their post and the fact that when trying to get people to work with you shrouds of secrecy are counter productive and a waste of time. Mr. F-String is welcome to try again if he's willing to talk. Otherwise...
