Of course no one wants to think that - that word is 'taboo' in this forum.

My point was you could have a high IQ but not to well in life at all.

How do you measure success though?

By the number of diamond-encrusted ponies in one's possession.

What about those who own ponies with the added embelishment of a retractable pashmina?

They find in the US and Britain that the correlation between IQ and earnings for individuals is approximately 0.4. IQ also seems to account for up to 1/3 of an individual's financial success.

So you're more likely to do well in life if you have a high IQ, but this only contributes a small proportion overall.

About what, exactly? It's not that it's low, it's that I don't know it.

Or people who do well are more likely to have a high IQ. You can't prove causality in these cases.

Well the ones with ponies of the diamond-encrutsed variety would rather go to Oxford...

It doesn't really matter about causality in these cases either.
