Anyone with IQ 85 can function independently and receive training to work in a position that requires no decision making. They basically have no difficulties in education and employment. They can lead a happy and standard life no matter how much they score in IQ test.

However, this IQ 85 does not limit one person in certain fields of life. They can be skillful in fixing things, excellent at physical activities or talented when it comes to performing on stage. IQ test does not measure all types of intelligence, so it does not indicate your full capacities.

It is true that a person with 85 IQ score may be slower in processing information, which could contribute to poorer results in terms of education, for example.

A person with IQ 85 can be slow at school and need special support. But it does not mean they can not finish high school or college. They are able to understand basic knowledge, which is the origin of every theory and research. With time and effort spent, maybe assistance as well, they can complete any course.

A question should be raised here is the performance at the test of each individual. Some are in their best physical and mental state, some are not. Your score can be affected by outer factors and does not measure accurately your actual intelligence. An intelligent one can be extremely nervous and perform worse in the test as well.
