    IQ numbers are all bogus. You're measuring success with IQ. It’s reduculous. Of course I can make a person with an IQ of 90 a billionaire. It’s called inheritance. Another way ? Hitting home runs and lots of them. These people have high performance skills and the ability to move mental skills into performance skills is a highly intellectual indevor. High skilled performers can actually change time perception. They can slow time down in their mind. That’s an extremely important intellect capability that can earn one millions of dollars. . You can hire some one to do the business end.

    I read a lot of science ? Show it. In my world, it’s performance that matters, not BS claims like “ I’m smart.”

    You want to make a test hard ? Write it in a foreign language or deprive the person being tested of good nutrition.

    Hilariously uninformed and predudicial. The right has their share of all deviant behavior and more then their share of ignorance.

    Billionaires surrounded by loose women who let you do anything you want to them.

    I'm so surprised.

    I guess this makes any guy in a bar that's ever ended up getting straddled on a couch a "sexual predator".

    Or maybe it's just whiny beta males that have to date former men that are just jealous they can't get laid.

    Read The Bell Curve and get back to me. It has more science than your article there.

    Not likely . Name one major university in the entire world that uses IQ as an admission factor. Name one.

    I guess you'll just have to keep complaining about it.

    No, I'm not. "Performance" is not based on intelligence. Some of the smartest people in the world haven't done a whole lot with their lives. That doesn't make them "not smart". Many of the top performers in the world aren't the brightest bulbs. But there isn't a dumb physicist on planet earth. Nor a dumb mathematician. Sports figures make a lot of money because people will pay to watch them do it, not because they are smart. Same with actors and musicians. (I dare say actors are some of the dumbest people around, going by their political leanings.) Success in life is tied closely to intelligence because intelligence is applicable in so many areas.

    Your "test" would only make the geniuses stand out more. Smart people know more foreign words and phrases than average people. It would be difficult to find a test that wouldn't automatically give smart people an inherent advantage. Note also that it's difficult to find smart adults who weren't already smart children. Motivational speaker Les Brown is the only person I can think of off the top of my head.

    All of them. Success in school and success on the SAT are directly correlated with IQ.

    Success in elementary school is correlated with IQ at the .7 level, in high school at .5, meaning half of a student's academic success is based on his/her IQ.

    https://www.ukessays.com/essays/psy...and-academic-performance-psychology-essay.php

    "Both the ACT and old SAT were highly correlated with IQ, but the SAT took first place by a good margin (88% versus 77%)."

    The average European speaks 3-4 languages.
    Does that make them more of an intellect of an American who speaks English and profanity ?

    Get real. This is an essay submitted by a student. It isn’t even real science. Laughable. You guys just google for anything anywhere that will agree with you....
    Funny.

    Get off your butt and read it. There is no science behind it.

    The problem with that statement is, there is no science behind it. You don’t seem to know what science is. It’s institutional. Do you know what that means ? Name one major science institution that uses IQ as an evaluation tool.
    You can find lots of individual lackies whose racial bias will put their name on anything. That’s not science. You’re simply stealing the word science and throwing it out there like you had a clue. You don’t. Are you a member of the AAAS or valid institute of science or do you speak for their consensus ? Nope.

    Instead of just making up stuff, use a reference from an aaas sanctioned periodical.

    Yeah because committing actual crimes and not releasing non-required information is basically the same thing.

    Crimes, what crimes ? Trump has made civil restitution on several allegations he’s acknowledged guilty to and is an un indicted co conspirator on felony charges, just waiting for him when he becomes a civilian traitor.
    Hillary, nothing.....nothing, buy your fallacy.
    Just yada yada.
