**“IQ” is a stale test meant to measure mental capacity but in fact mostly measures “extreme unintelligence” (learning difficulties)"**

**"It is at the bottom an immoral measure that, while not working, can put people (and, worse, groups) in boxes for the rest of their lives."**

**"There is no significant statistical association between IQ and hard measures such as wealth."**

**"If you want to detect how someone fares at a task, say loan sharking, tennis playing, or random matrix theory, make him/her do that task; we don’t need theoretical exams for a real world function by probability-challenged psychologists."**

**"But the “intelligence” in IQ is determined by academic psychologists (no geniuses) like the “paper trading” we mentioned above, via statistical constructs s.a. correlation that I show here (see Fig. 1) that they patently don’t understand."**

**"It takes a certain type of person to waste intelligent concentration on classroom/academic problems. These are lifeless bureaucrats who can muster sterile motivation. Some people can only focus on problems that are real, not fictional textbook ones (see the note below where I explain that I can only concentrate with real not fictional problems)."**

**"To do well in life you need depth and ability to select your own problems and to think independently. And one has to be a lunatic (or a psychologist) to believe that a standardized test will reveal independent thinking."**

**"National IQ is a Fraud."**
