Man with 200 IQ
« on: April 02, 2017, 05:38:47 PM »

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j-788Upky2Y

As the video states early on, most people have an IQ around 100 and people like Einstein had IQs around 160. This dude has an IQ of 200 and is interviewed in this video. Pretty interesting to hear a guy, unlike most people any of us will ever meet, respond to questions many of us have (god, afterlife, the universe, reality, etc). Also, what does a guy with this high of an IQ do with his life? He lives a quiet, farm life and says that life has more meaning to him then a life with an abundance of money.

Pretty cool.

Seems like a nice guy but the way he described people on Jeapordy was a little lacking in emotional intelligence. In other words he came across as a hater. Other than that he speaks beautifuly. I'd caution putting too much faith in IQ tests though. He scored better than Einstien or Newton theoretically. Does that mean he's definitively smarter? Probably not. Still seems like an impressive dude though.

If he was really so smart he would sell his stuff to the highest bidder.

Though for an honest answer; he seems to have a problem I've seen with really smart people.

Lack of direction or really ambition in general.

Maybe it's hard to do just "one" thing when you can be anything.

No matter what your limiting yourself.

Well from his view that's not a problem. He has free time to work on stuff he's passionate about (Cognitive Reality Etc Etc Theory) he has a very smart woman that he loves, a place he really enjoys living, doesn't seem such a bad racquet.

Maybe I thought it was interesting that he started up a band; got an audition but then just skipped it to be a bouncer.

I agree with a lot of what you guys have to say, especially in regards to what IQ means. IQ tests are really just an insight to one type of thinking, so it's a very narrow window. However, when someone exceeds THAT well (and you can't really argue people with high IQs are dumb), I think it indicates something.

So his teachers told his classmates (all of whom would be older and bigger than him as he skipped a few grades), that they all had to be like him.  Of course he'd get beaten up.  The teachers might as well say "Ok kids, beat the shit out of him when we're not looking".

Yeah and considering that he might just be "naturally" smart it's not exactly a given they even "had" the option of being like him.
