​SNOOP DOGG IQ - 147

Snoop Dogg IQ score is 147, which is considered to be extremely high and that of a gifted genius.

Jim Mullen, a technical management assumes that:

I don't know Snoop Dog, but he is successful by conventional standards, so he's above average in terms of persistence and creativity. It is not a big deal to score 140 on an IQ test. One can study for IQ tests, to get 140 without studying indicates a good basic tool set.

I don't think IQ is a good measure on its own, it's just one of several pieces of evidence. In the end there's not much we can do except observe what someone says and does in order to size them up keep in mind we'll never know the half of it. If we're lucky we'll have decent idea of our own capabilities, forget about summing up someone else's abilities, ever. 

If we could do that with IQ, it would simplify the interview process I suppose. In that case we'd have a lot more people studying for their IQ tests.. lots of people would know several names for the color blue, would know their basic geometry and word problem solving, and would enhance their vocabulary.  Not all negative, certainly that time is better spent than watching many of the shows people do.

Below is opinion of David Wyman, past President, Prometheus High IQ Society:

Rather than answer directly, I will ask "What is the evidence that this is Snoop Dogg IQ score?"  Sometimes we look at famous people and think "She's smarter than people give her credit for," and we want to express that with a claim of high IQ score.  If there is a source, ask yourself if it is credible: does this source actually know the test results?  More often, people will look at the person's accomplishments and say "Well, he went to this school...or she wrote seven screenplays...or he learned to fly a rocket ship..." They will rightly notice that said accomplishment is unusual, and requires at least some intelligence.  From that, they leap to some high number, which is not always justified.  Most accomplishments require skills additional to IQ, and it may be those skills which are exceptional in the person.

If the source is the person themselves, you could theoretically ask them to explain further, or even to prove it.  We usually don't, because there is seldom any point to that.  But we might wonder to ourselves if there is anything behind the claim.  Did Snoop Dogg IQ make that claim? Did he give the reason why he thinks it is that number?
