This is a sad assessment indeed that 75% of the population has an IQ level of below 100. This explains why so many people are religious and are susceptible to suggestion i.e. brainwashing. Ortega was right about the mass person indeed!
One thing that puzzles me when we ask about 'intelligence'. People always get defensive. One might as well get defensive about the color of their hair or eyes. It takes all intelligence levels to make a world. Use what you got!
A 90-100 IQ is average but to me, that is low. According to psychological & IQ assessments, low IQ is below 90. No one wants a low IQ for low IQ people have limited/impaired functioning. No one wants that!
As I have stated a high IQ can also show imparement take the rain man. An autistic person can have a high IQ but impaired functionality in everyday life.
Genius-level IQs are not uncommon among people with very high-functioning autism but autism is not common among people with high IQs. Personal experience suggests to me that the genius-level intelligence makes the high-functionality possible.
