comment Free online intelligence test with norm table, high reliability, and must be printable?
I doubt that any DIY test will result in high levels of accuracy. These tests cost a lot of money to create and they are fairly elaborate. Self-administering them is, well, kind-of a crazy idea. Just knowing what the test measures gives you an advantage.

comment What are the benefits of dyslexia?
Both of those sources focus on "Gifted children with learning disabilities" -meaning that they have talents in other areas. People with disabilities can compensate, but we also could have been spending that time and energy doing other things. Some disabilities do correlate with being above average in other areas, but I only know of bipolar. A disability can certainly alter ones perception, but one has to go digging to find any measure of life quality that would show improvement for the average person.
