    This is a game.  What would you suppose is the average IQ according to college major:
    Mathematical Science
    Engineering
    Physics
    Pre-Med
    History
    Performing Arts/Theater
    Arts
    Humanities
    Any subject that ends in .....studies e.g. Women's Studies, Black Studies, etc.
    Politics
    Chemistry
    Philosophy

      Oddly enough politic would have the highest IQ

      Maybe followed by mathematics, philosophy,engineering, physic all guesses for highest IQs.

        I would like to agree, at least for EQ.

      Interesting question. After seeing an IQ special where the physicist dominated 90% of the tests and only lost on the subjective or physical tests, I'm going to go with physics as the top IQ major. Other top tiers include math and any type of engineering, followed by things like chemistry and computer science.

      Strong picks include religious studies, philosophy, political science, biological sciences and history.

      The weakest majors would be psychology, social studies and arts.

      After looking at these IQ estimates (http://www.statisticbrain.com/iq-estima … ege-major/) there are a couple of things to note:

      - I undervalued philosophy; it's actually a top tier pick. There can be quite a bit of logic and analytical thinking involved in philosophy, but my experiences with it in university showed a lot of padding and rationalizations. Now that I think about it, the ability to successfully defend irrational or nonsensical premises requires a high degree of intelligence.
      - Economics is another top tier pick which I completely forgot about. I don't have much experience in the field but given its complexities it makes sense that it demands highly intelligent individuals.
      - Health and Medical sciences are weakly correlated with IQ.

      Other than that, not a lot of surprises.

        In a nationwide IQ contest in Canada, they broke it down to 6 groups. Guess who won?.

        Follow by
        2. Nerds
        3. Atheist
        4. Philosophy
        5. Christian
        6. Twins

          What IQ contest was this? The way the groups are broken down doesn't make much sense. The only mutually exclusive groups are atheists and Christians, the rest can happen simultaneously (you can have an atheist, nerdy, philosopher politician who is also a twin).

      My IQ would be at the atheist, except don't claim atheism.

      Horse, if yours were true, you would be at the highest IQ level of Bill Clinton.

      Hitler had a very high IQ too.

      High IQ can be great liars and more likely to be unhappy .

      Bill Clinton had the highest IQ of all American presidents including Hitler.  Clinton had a serious sexual addiction and in the top ten worst sins in America are sexually related issues.

      Clinton was not a murderer like Bush, Obama and Hitler. That goes to show if higher Aliens visited earth they would not try to murder people, like in Hollywood films of Mars Attacks.

        Might want to look up the history of the Arkansas Clinton mafia dynasty . The proof says otherwise ! from murder, to legalized rape , to political and legalized extortion to   presidential  serfdom !

          Clinton had the largest economy growth than any President in American history and these least military body count deaths.

          What ever body count that Clinton has been accused of interior affairs has not been accounted for.

          Where with Bush-es and Obama millions of body count have been accounted for against international law. GW Bush has the lowest IQ of all Presidents.

            Clinton economic "success "   was the direct result in success of the  Reaganomics , hence for one the well  known name  , 'Reaganomics'  , No president changes anything instantly upon the taking of office , with the probable exception of one Pres. Obama , destroying every concept of success in  mass entitlement spending policy ever known in American history  . But , If you understand economics  ; you know this and yet  deny it .

              The worst thing ever is the National debt during Obama terms.

              That was setup by bankers and corporatism, why they want to run people lives, I don't know, maybe  evil greed insanity.

    My hero in life and the most intelligent man I've ever known was  a man who never finished the eighth grade .     He never earned more  than fifteen or twenty thousand dollars a year , but  could have changed the entire direction of this country , totally .

      Well that can show, people with high IQ like Politician can be so over rated. Then you have people who have a great heart and courage that are so under rated.
