Are Geniuses Socially Inept, Non-Attractive And Clumsy?
One of the biggest myths going in our society is that geniuses are socially inept nerds and all blondes are dumb. In fact, the statistics show that actually the opposite is true. You see Blondes tend to ride about 5-10 points on average in IQ over the rest of the population.
Are you ready for this? The True Geniuses amongst us are often extremely athletic, have excellent dexterity, socially fun to be around and symmetrically features (attractive). That is what the statistics show.
Whoops, there goes that myth with scientific statistical data to prove it. Recently, I had a long conversation with a molecular geneticist and evolutionary biology professor on this subject. She said that many of her classmates at USD Revelle College (cluster college) while getting her advanced degrees were all geniuses (smartest of the smarts including applied physics, etc.). At USD she indicated that the geniuses were not all good looking, but most were. She said none of them were socially inept, although did not often choose to socialize with lower IQ folks, as they did not have much to talk about and got bored easy with; "How is the Weather" conversations. Later in her career she taught Evolutionary Biology at Cal State LA she only encountered a couple of geniuses, although most students were regular people, smart yes, but most went on to become doctors and nurses. The geniuses she met there were hardly socially inept or ugly. Indeed, I found all this information fascinating because this is what the research studies show and even what I myself have found as the coordinator for the Online Think Tank in dealing with all these geniuses out there. I certainly hope this article is of interest and that is has propelled thought. The goal is simple; to help you in your quest to be the best in 2007. I thank you for reading my many articles on diverse subjects, which interest you.
