The effects of Shrooms on a persons IQ
    #3239958 - 10/10/04 08:29 PM (13 years, 13 days ago)

I recently tried shrooms for my first time last week. I made the mistake of eating 4 grams at one time. I had a terrible trip. But during the first hour before things got bad, I was able to study physics so much better...I am a physics major, I am currently studying theoretical physics & modern physics. Everything from calculations to concepts became so much easier...

Basically, do shrooms increase your IQ?


--------------------
....and that was when I knew it would be a bad trip, the bed was tieing me to the bed and my shirt started to eat me..............and just like that it was over, as if nothing had happened.

don't think so, but they do let you think in diffrent ways...

four grams is a pretty rocking dose but not for a first trip :lol:

what made you want to study on them? that could be why you didn't like it...

no. mushrooms do not make you smarter.

they can allow you to remove some of the filters in your mind and see things from a new perspective, but that does not make you smarter.

Shrooms makes it impossible for me to deal with numbers.

I think it can given that iq is actually the measure by which you can learn stuff, and if you can think on more levels than you can learn more things...

IQ is a joke really. I can score high on an IQ test, but that doesn't mean jack shit in real world application.

Judging by your statement, yours is.....

IQ is a measure of your ability to learn.....thus, real world application would be: being able to learn in school....which means able to learn and goto college...which means get a degree and not be a custodian

have you taken an IQ test? they test various things such as vocabulary, ability to find number patterns, and the ability to mentally construct a 3-dimensional object out of a 2-dimensional pattern.

Now, I can mentally construct those crazy tetrahedrons, and hell, I have an extensive vocab. Well, this means that I have a firm grasp of spatiality and I read a lot.

But IQ has no real world application. Remember, I do extremely well on these worthless tests and I am the one being cynical of them.

Mine is like 126, not interesting anyway, but it means little to me. I can't do anything. I don't want to, I guess they should make a motivational test. MQ or something.

To answer your question.. I don't think they increase my IQ. I think they decrease it if anything, like short attention span, can't work with numbers, etc.

It is up to you.

I dont think it raises your IQ either, I think it just opens your mind more. When I did shrooms for the first time it didnt make me smarter, it just made me take really absurd ideas and think about them in a very realistic way.

Well; first of all; IQ has little or nothing to do with the effects of tripping.

I mean; solving stupid questions like "856-128= ???" has little or nothing to do with the power of mushrooms.

Mushrooms provide a whole new insight in your life, different perspective, eternal love.
And as far as I know; you can't measure the latter.

Maybe mushrooms strongly enhance your spiritual IQ... Just a thought... :wink:

Personally I think mushrooms might affect your mentality a bit , but I think LSD has more of an affect on your IQ. It is so much more psychological, but I am not knocking Shrooms :smile:  :jester:

you try them? I don't think they or acid for that matter, have any detrimental effects on your IQ or mental state when used in moderation... it's alright if you trip every day for a little bit I guess, but don't go over board.

And many thoughts do come from shroomz.... Like GDman said, you see things from totally different perspectives, but I don't think it actually changes how smart you are.... Just different processing in yer~ noggin....

It does give you "wisdom", and a deeper understanding/meaning of things you think about whilest tripping....

I do not think your IQ increases but merely your awareness to notice things which require more thought, with less effort! I also believe it it isn't always how much you trip but how indepth of a trip it is or was. I have a prety good recolection of the events and mental proggression i have had from trips!
