Exactly, there was a boyfriend of a high school classmate w/a 145 IQ. He indicated that he was a C student because he felt that social/people skills were more important than book knowledge.
Very true! There are many instances of kids who failed basic math but seem to have no problems measuring ounces, grams, and kilos when it comes to distributing drugs. Others flunked chemistry but can mix with the best of them. Priorities matter!
