I'd actually be more interested at this point in IQ vs. Personality type. While I don't think one determines the other, I have a gut feeling that certain types are probably more likely to be better at the skills required for IQ tests. As an INTP, I do very well at these types of tests, but I think that has a LOT to do with my process of thought. Certain types of problems just come naturally to me.
IQ vs. LSAT, very short version:
High LSAT = high IQ for the most part. High IQ is necessary (but not sufficient) for high LSAT.
However, high IQ ≠ high LSAT, because there are many reasons other than intelligence level (lack of prep, experience/confidence with standardized testing, etc.) that could cause a lower LSAT score.
Anything beyond that is apt to descend into a flamewar and epic postings of FAIL pics.
