Rantings and tirades of a frustrated economist.
This dovetails neatly into Curse of the High IQ (just arrived today - only a quarter of the way through, had to stop and reassess myself).As someone who was flat-out told all my life that I was stupid: Thank you. Part of the mental repair came from a few years ago, when I looked into IQ. Your book, illustrating the Z-Score and what it actually means in context with the world, has been the next piece in the puzzle.Definitely I'm freakish. I'm glad that now I know why in more detail.Most of all: now I begin to understand how someone as "stupid" as me could get into IT without going to University (that's New Zealand's version of College, to you Americans).
Right! I agree with most all you had to say, and yes, like you, I was totally ignorant of what was going on before the internet. The internet has been a godsend to me for filtering out bullshit, and I am so envious of young people today who don't need any dumb baby boomer mentor and can get it from more redpilled sources. It would have saved me so much time and effort that I have wasted. As a redpilled GenXer, I am salvaging what I can.
Thank you so much for this! I´ve watched and enjoyed a lot of your material, but this one really stands out. I don´t know my IQ, but I do now that I find a lot of people totally unstimulating to be around. This makes me kind of lonely most of the time, but I prefer loneliness to hanging out with people who bore me, people who never have anything interesting to say. Of course there´s nothing wrong with them, but we have nothing or very little in commonYour comment about sports really resonated with me. I sometimes try to watch, but my mind drifts off almost immediately. Most of the time, it´s just boring. It´s fun to take part in sports and other physical activities, but not to watch. Anyway, thanks all the way from Sweden, a country in serious decline :-(Best regards,Newman
