Thank you for shouting, in my old age this is really a help.

I didn't disregard IQ tests, Sir/Madam.
I reacted to somebody who bragged with his IQ.

Ok then, now for the logician:

If   (
     intelligence is the ability to learn
     admitting one's lack of knowledge
     is a prerequisite to learn
     bragging is a sure sign of having not learned,
     how one's own mind is functioning,
     bragging about one's IQ is a sure sign
     of lack of intelligence.

It's a pleasure to discuss with you<grin>
