    "IQ" THREAD

    "IQ" measures an inferior form of intelligence, stripped of 2nd order effects, meant to select paper shufflers, obedient IYIs.

    1- When someone asks you a question in REAL LIFE, you focus first on "WHY is he asking me that?", which slows down. (Fat Tony vs Dr John)

    2- It takes a certain type of person to waste intelligent concentration on classroom/academic problems. These are lifeless bureaucrats who can muster sterile motivation.

    Some people can only focus on problems that are REAL, not fictional textbook ones.

  5. According to the "Marshmallow test", preference for deferred gratification is a better predictor of "success".

  7. It's funny to see someone with a genius level IQ like Taleb (a talented quant and professor) literally deny the importance of the metric, when he himself no doubt has a very high IQ, and would not have the cognitive abilities or success he enjoys without it.

  10. No it's not! I side (in part) with @nntaleb and others such a Richard NIsbett (Intelligence and How to Get it) and Stephen Ceci (On Intelligence, More or Less).

    Nassim, I have huge respect for you, but you really don't know what you're talking about wrt intelligence. You should stop and read more. This is embarrassing. Seriously.

  11. The other problem, Geoffrey, is that you do not know probability to realize when research is stretched/mined.

  14. The first clue that IQ is BS is that IQ is forced to fit into a bell curve while financial success or cultural/historical impact is fat-tailed
