ive been curious about this quote over the last month or so, after reading Sklansky's other quote, something to the effect of "to make 50k a year requires an iq of over 130, hard work, discipline, etc."

[/ QUOTE ]

David thinks that having an IQ over 130, working somewhat hard, and having some discipline is no big deal. I agree.

[/ QUOTE ]

I feel incredibly blessed to have an IQ of 128. I almost feel like I won a major prize in the Ovarian lottery. I didn't do anything to deserve what I have other than being born.

You are correct that an IQ of 130 or higher is no big deal though - unless of course you actually do something worthwhile with it.

It's not about what you are blessed with.

It's about what you do with your blessings.

well i guess the quote is not necessariliy contradictory. i think it is definitely misleading, though, for your average joe, with an average iq. he will read this line, and soon entertain silly fantasies of playing professional poker. personally, though, i think someone with an iq of around 75 could be taught without excessive difficulty to succeed at party 2/4, so perhaps the quote is not so harmful.
