    IQ

    This thread was sparked by a discussion in the EZ where @Fabulous; claimed that IQ has no bearing on success and that Einstein’s 160 IQ wasn’t impressive.



    You can discuss other things here, like race and IQ or your personal IQ.

    IQ has an undeniable general correlation with success in life. I think it's a good measure of intelligence when observing trends, but not absolute as per the individual.

    Race and IQ is definitely an interesting topic albeit very uncomfortable for most involved because of the obvious genetic component and implications.

    IQ factors in several components of intelligence too. For example Kong mentioned Ashkenazi Jews having high average math and verbal intelligence but I think they score lower in visual-spatial intelligence.

    The high linguistic intelligence of Ashkenazi Jews is why they tend to dominate fields like law and entertainment. It’s also true that they score lower in spatial intelligence when compared to Germans, who dominate engineering because of their advantage in that area.

    Not too many famous Jewish Chemists either which definitely has a spatial component to the study, at least outside of Physical Chemistry

    Jews also tend to be poor atheletes as well.

    It's funny how slight genetic differences between races are like speccing into a different skill set in an rpg, lol

    I don't care about IQ so much. It's just a number that you assign to your supposed intelligence level to compare to other people like dick length to make you more superior or inferior.

    Having a 160 IQ is obviously impressive among ordinary people, and even among, say, tenured professors. It's not very impressive compared to what Einstein actually achieved, though. A 160 IQ means you're one in thousands or tens of thousands, whereas Einstein's mind was probably one in a billion.
