“What Your I.Q. Means

116+

17 percent of the world population; superior I.Q.; appropriate average for individuals in professional occupations.

121+

10 percent; potentially gifted; average for college graduates

132+

2 percent; borderline genius; average I.Q. of most Ph.D. recipients

143+

1 percent; genius level; about average for Ph.D.’s in physics

158+

1 in 10,000; Nobel Prize winners

164+

1 in 30,000; Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the chess champion Bobby Fischer.”

Using gaming strategies to confirm the benefits of working-memory training on fluid intelligence will need further confirmation but this article is still interesting . . .

Dan Hurley is working on a book about intelligence.
