Yeah, I saw that too. I might have just released a post that could preclude a few more street scuffles if those who live in the "lower states" feel this state comparison is some type of slam against them as people, instead of valid results or perhaps off slightly in some way...but still of course not racist. Everything being pegged as racist has led to the word becoming meaningless. Soon it won't be used due to its ridiculous level of overuse, and I hate to wish my life away but I do look forward to that day when it's no longer "a thing".A pretty significant drop from Massachusetts -104.3 to Mississippi - 94.2.I found this to be an interesting breakdown among the states. I am only adding this as it supports that 100 IQ remains around average in the states. I read that 105 was the average IQ in Japan and China recently in a different article, but this one is still worth a look for anyone who is interested.Again, it is understanding human intelligence that is the problem. Being an adequate person is not directly related to i.q., at least not from above about 60. Those under 100 are easily exploited and we should take steps to keep that from happening.
One thing to keep in mind is a sense of perspective. If we accept the estimation that a chimp might have a 40 i.q. and that the average human is around 100, then we should recognize that the highest measure in our species is more than twice above human average than the average human is above a chimp. Imagine living in a world where all those around you were so incapable of comprehending what for you was simple! We can understand the contempt a poorly formed personality could develop. This is another reason we need to better integrate what we know about testing and how it relates to life.
