Let's say Trump and Tillerson actually go through with having their IQ's tested. What do you think each would score?

I'd think Trump would be around 115 or so. He's not retarded, but his lack of empathy and inability to coherently express his statements make him seem like he is. I don't think he'd do well on a typical IQ test though, since his intelligence would lend itself more to trying to skirt the rules of the test and prove how his answers could be right than actually completing it properly.

IQ is fucking weird as fuck, man
The tree grows high but the oxygen fails to reach all the branches.

Rex will probably have the higher IQ.  I honestly think Trump would do pretty bad since most IQ tests involve  factual knowledge, short-term memory, abstract reasoning, visual-spatial abilities, and common sense.

Maybe short term memory would be his best.

Trump probably wouldn't score especially highly. Nothing about him suggests that he's particularly bright. He's not stupid, but the way he earned his money wasn't through creating anything brilliant, but mostly by taking advantage of others and sometimes by simple cons. He was just fortunate to be born into a rich and well-connected family and to probably lack some of the basic decency that most people exhibit, coupled with an indomitable and exaggerated confidence. Trump's entire thing is built on self-promotion. His company is actually a small operation, because everything is franchised, contracted or subsidiarized.

Tillerson, on the other hand, actually ran a vast international company in fairly successful way. He is lacking in terms of political and public-service experience, but he at least seems to understand the world and have a basic set of recognizably American values.

Trump isn't necessarily outright stupid, but he's dangerous because he doesn't really recognize that there are people that are (much) more competent, informed or intelligent than himself, so he doesn't listen to them.

See this shows the true mistake people sometimes make with intellegence. There is a trope in TV, movies of smart people being assholes. Like the more smart you are the bigger douce you are.  Because if your smart you cant deal with  boring stuff like being nice,  working with people, seeing the other side...because your just the damm smartest guy in the room

But really there are nice smart people
And dumb people that are raving assholes


it because if your smart you might be smart enough to know there shit you don't know. Trump may very well be smart in some regards but dumb in others.  Which is why a buisness man...even a good one might not be as good at running a goverment.  And this is worsen by the fact trump not even a good buisnessman.
