Not to brag, but I'm half Jew and half Chinese. I have no idea what my IQ is, but I'm confident it's at least 107. An IQ below 70 means a person has mental retardation. This means the average global IQ is just above retarded. See why I can't be a libertarian? The Founding Fathers of America were wise enough to put restrictions on voting, barriers to entry. The Chinese did the same with imperial examinations following a Confucian model. Now we let anyone vote in America, so politicians have to pander to the lowest elements. That's why Obama can capture the youth vote by hanging out with Jay-Z. Israel is a tiny country and the global Jewish population is also very small. On the other hand, the Chinese number over a billion. Northeast Asians are the second highest as far as IQ. The Chinese don't have a democratic government which represents the interests of people barely above retardation. They may open up a bit, but anyone expecting Chinese democracy will be disappointed. That's why the U.S. will decline.A Jewish average IQ of 115 is 8 points higher than the generally accepted IQ of their closest rivalsâ€”Northeast Asiansâ€”and approximately 40% higher than the global average IQ of 79.1 calculated by Richard Lynnand Ta tu Vanhanen in IQ and Global Inequity.

Ever thought of management consulting? You really don't need to be a math or science whiz to teach people commonsense, on how to run a company. I think it's the best play for one, who's not on that whole health care/medical, IT/tech consulting, or patent law track.
The smartest Jews (American Ashkenazi) are supposed to have just average US white level (100-103) spatial intelligence but off-the charts (like around 125-130) verbal intelligence. They are also superior but more modestly in the other sub-categories. So they probably won't do so well on those flipping stuff around questions.
Great, because I think I got my points on the spatial grids Thus, my dream of retiring as my avatar, a mad scientist like Doc Brown, is in my cards.
I hardly consider today's US a democracy, more like corporatacracy or eliteocracy. 93% of congress people were the candidates with superior financial backing. Who really decides the final choices we get presidential candidates? Our system is kind of at the opposite end of the spectrum from the ideals of populism.
It's funny, but it's almost like China is becoming more American than America. From a pure economic definition they're not even Communist anymore.
Rock, even if that's true, the free market is a democracy that elects corporations. American culture has become degenerate because of mass production and marketing to the lowest elements of society.

Below 90 is getting really thick. And if you have a quick casual chat with someone who is 85 or below, you should be able to quickly sense that the person is very slow. I think Forrest Gump was just below 85 by the way, lol.
Him and Gore, both got mainly C-'s to B-'s at their respective Ivy League colleges. I'd hit their butts in MOST academic subjects, any day. Those fellows were clearly, highly connected, mediocre students.
The only former politicians I'd feel threatened by were Alexander Hamilton, Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln, Richard Nixon, and perhaps Teddy Roosevelt and Clinton, when he's actually studying and not fooling around. As for Hamilton, I'd throw in the towel, I honestly don't believe that I'm as smart as him. Hamilton's IQ was probably around Newton's level. Otherwise, I'll accept other challengers.
That's a good list. If there's anyone I think is really off the charts it'd be Da Vinci. It's like the guy was actually a time traveller or something. I know the supposedly highest ever was William James Sidis:
IQ isn't everything though. What did Sidis actually accomplish?
Once again, being a Bostonian, I'd heard about Sidis, as peer level/precursor to Norbert Wiener, where Sidis was forced upon the stage too early for his own good, Wiener was allowed to slowly grow into an academic. Thus, Sidis' lacked the support to be able to transition from a child prodigy into a useful academic career. Wiener, also a Harvard PhD holder at 17, was a staff MITer for the rest of his life.
The article doesn't mention monogamy which is absolutely critical for the evolution of intelligence. And this was the key difference between Ashkenazi and Sephardi Jews, that the Ashkenazi were strictly monogamous and the Sephardi weren't.
Support morality, support Islam.
