I am the one that chose 'no'.
The reason I chose no is due to the enormous amount of IQ tests and there are
very simple to very difficult tests. I scored 142 on an IQ test many years ago and
on another 136 and still yet another 124. All three tests were different from the
other. Some questions are very simplistic such as 'what is a female cat called'
and 'what is 12 ft by 12 ft equal'.
I had a half sister that was considered borderline genius. She dropped out of
high school in her freshman year. She ran away from home many times. She
was very promiscuous to say the least. She went down to Mexico and worked
bar tending, met a man, married him so that he could be a US citizen, then
divorced him. She drank like a fish. She could turn up a fifth of vodka and
drink half of it in one gulp. She was a party animal. When she became a little
older, she took the GED test and scored 100% plus received an award. A couple
of years later, while drunk and not having her seat belt on, she wrecked going
90 down a highway and was thrown from the vehicle. She died immediately.
Intelligence seems to have little to do with common sense and rationalizing.
There are people with high intelligence that are basically worthless as a human
being. We can look at people like Ted Bundy. He was rather intelligent but also
a serial killer.
Charles Manson, well I never saw him as intelligent. I saw him as fried. Back
in the 60's he wasn't a bad looking fellow. He was a lazy punk. During that time
frame, there were a lot of young run away girls. Many wanted to run away to
California and were often preyed upon by evil doers. That's about all that amounted
to. He was an acid hippie and that found on old ranch and took in run away girls
that had no where to go. He then fed them acid and tried to pretend like he was
something special. Any sanity he may have had, went out the door long before it
started. LSD can fry the brain and it certainly did his.
