We've talked at length about what sort of high IQ strategy can win you EVERY game of Among Us. What I'd like you to consider today, however, is whether or not YOU need a 900 IQ to win. See, strategy is one thing. Anyone can learn a strategy. What I want to know is if having a real life higher IQ has any benefit. Do you have to be insanely smart or just know the game better than your opponents? It's time to find out!

  • So on the IQ question in the video I paused it to try to solve it but I didn't get the correct answer but got it right. Question: What comes next? 4, 10, 22, 46 Mat pat's answer: *2+2 4, 10, 22, 46 4*2+2= 10*2+2= 22*2+2= 46*2+2= 94*2+2= 190*2+2= 382 My answer: +6*X X= 1 double this each time 4, 10, 22, 46 4+6*1= 10+6*2= 22+6*4= 46+6*8= 94+6*16= 190+6*32= 382 So am I smart for getting the answer right, or dumb for using the wrong equation? What I mean is how would I score on an IQ test if I put this as the answer? Would I get the point for getting the right number, or would I not get the point for not finding the right equation?

  • I AM COMING AS A FNAF REPRESENTATIVE: Hello Matpat, I had just finished reading the book Blackbird and I thought of something. In the first story, Nole and Sam create a fake animatronic that comes and tries to kill Nole after Sam goes missing. He is haunted until he is forced to confront he victim form Jr. High and apologize for his bullying. Going back to the Blackbird, they made a suit for it and it seems to come to life. Now this could just be a mere coincidence that Nole experiences trauma but this is FNAF so I’m not so sure about that. But regarding the suits life, it came to life after Sam and Nole Discuss Nole’s bullying. So maybe the suit came to life via the agony caused by the bully victim, Christine. And once he makes amends to her, the agony is gone. Nothing is left to fuel the bird. So my point is, maybe agony doesn’t have to be injected directly. Maybe all it takes is an inanimate object related to a strong felling of agony. After all, Sam was sort of bulled by Nole and after that, the suit that Sam made supposedly comes to life, reawakening the agony from Christine. This agony goes to form Blackbird and stays inside it until amends is made. Now I draw your attention to Psychic Freind Fredbear. He may be fulled not by a sole but by agony. He is fueled with the agony do The Crying Child’s greif and sadness. And the reason the doll is in William’s office is because William will soon use it for it’s agony or because it’s a momentum of his child. Thank you for coming to my TedTalk

  • you know you didn't have to make a video about this, we all know were the only smart person in the entire lobby and everyone else only knows the words: Brown, Purple, Cyan, Lime, Yellow, Red, Orange, Green, Blue, Pink, No, Sus, I, Saw, Me, Kill, It, *Insert every swear word know to man here*, Where, ?? and Start. Their brains are the size of a peanut. And the thing is, were the only one with a real brain so saying any word other than the ones mentioned above would just confuse them and result in nothing. And that when we try to vote someone with evidence that they ran past the body/ faked a task/ is quiet for no reason the result is always gonna be the same: It wasn't them, they were just stupid. I had a game once, red said they saw lime kill and was safe but they voted red anyway, but that's not the worst part, i called multiple emergency meeting trying to get them to vote lime with real evidence including the one i mentioned before, but every time they were just os stupid! then i just straight up lied and said i saw them vent because we only had 3 people left and guess what, RED SAW THEM KILL AND WAS NOT THE IMPOSTOR! but purple was like nah, and didn't vote at all I've never been that salty about a loss ever in my life. And i didn't tell you even a 1/3 of what happened! i just wanna get this over with! and after all my frustrations, after lime killing everyone one by one and everyone else refusing to vote him out all i got was "sorry blue"... SORRY BLUE! so yeah, i'm in outrage and trust me, i wish i was dead.

  • I was going to make a really dumb comment, but matpat teaches me so much I decided not to If league of legend players had higher iq, and FPS players were usually younger, it makes me curious to see what people on games like beat saber (which I’d think would be obvious) and Minecraft bedwars.

  • One time a person i could tell was a toddler i think self reported. My reason was, he was a toddler because of his spelling and his name and how slow he typed. I notice my younger cousin always self reports and maybe that common on young ppl. Also everyone was on left side (i saw on admin) and he was only one where body was reported. I guessed it was him and all but two ppl voted ke oit. Idk. O asked the dead crewmate and i was right!
