    Yeah, the historian was clearly pulling things from his ass.

    [QUOTE=hazlnut;1059369247]Ah, yes... the ol' change-the-subject trick. The Conservative two-step.

    "Speaking of IQ's..." Gimme a break.


    We were speaking of Bachmann's IQ -- that's the TOPIC -- do you have something to add?[/QUOTE]

    Yea, I'll remember this when when you stray off topic.

    Smartest presidents within the last 50 years were Nixon and (yeah I was a bit surprised too) Carter. Some place Clinton up there, but I wouldn't put him above 140.
    140 is not that great, I would think Clinton may be higher than that. Besides as you know the smartest person in the room isn't always the most effective.

    Not sure how accurate this site is, but just for laughs:

    The IQ of Famous People - Famous People With High IQ's
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    This study puts Bill at 149. I honestly think that's overestimated, but maybe I'm wrong. I think 140 qualifies you for MENSA, thought it may be a few points lower.

    After 145, you're 3 standard deviations away and it becomes a lot murkier - anyone above that qualifies as a "genius".

    Also, there's so many different tests that use different metrics. I remember I got somewhere around 160 in my teens on one test and I think at 172 or 173 a few years ago.
    At a certain point, a few points doesn't matter anymore. Difference in productivity between a person with 150 and 160 IQ is minimal, but between a person at 120 and 130 is very noticeable.

    That's generally correct for the people I know, some are over or underestimated, though. I have no idea how accurate the music/art/acting celebrities' IQs are.

    Yeah I really have no idea...maybe have to go back and read the cox study to find out their methodology, but they have been estimating IQs for historical figures from hundreds of years ago so they must have formulated some type of methodology for figuring out someone's IQ outside of a simple IQ test.
