I'm not ready to assign a minimum IQ number as a measure as to whether someone is qualified to become a member of the supreme court, legislator or president for that matter. Obviously I want someone that is intelligent enough to do the job properly but as of today I have never seen a study done linking IQ numbers with job results for our leaders. I don't know what Trump's IQ is but if it is less than 115 should that rule him out as a presidential candidate. If so I would definitely like to see him tested. Sorry, I won't accept a score that he claims to have. He also claims to have a 2 or 3 golf handicap that most of the people that play with him vigorously dispute.We would do well to eliminate and replace most of our existing legislators. Seriously, can we do any worse? Not only are a high percentage sociopaths, but also midwits.
You know that IQ and SAT are highly correlated? Correlation factor of approximately 0.8, so it really does predict intelligence quite well. SAT to IQ
Are you seriously OK with a person on the highest court in the land having an IQ of 115, for example? 120?
Do you really think that the fact that you know some smart people who have no common sense invalidates the benefits of IQ? Seriously?
Why do we want to be run by stupid people? Why don't we want to be run by smart people?
