IQ? Aren't looks and a proper public school education important too?

Alex

Which is essentially the opposite conclusion to your attack on equality of opportunity.

Jeffrey Mushens

What a sensible piece. Pointing out that, yes, natural ability is important, but that just (nearly, whatever) as important is what you do with the talent you have.

Glenn Athey

I am crap at chess. Just can't be bothered with it. Maybe I am thick, but am making the most of my natural ability...

Dipper

Intelligence cannot be measured like height, and chess is a good illustration of why. Yes there are some top players who are all round polymaths, but there are also some who show no signs of anything but average intelligence apart from outstanding ability at chess (eg Bobby Fisher). Different players have different ways of analysing positions and different degrees of intuition.

So if IQ is of limited use in identifying top chess players, what use is it in any other sphere? None. It correlates most strongly with income, so its just a way of keeping the proles down by justifying the existing class structure (“you’re poor because you’re thick”), and labels people failures when we should be developing talents.

The concept of IQ has no place in libertarian debate. When you see it Attack! Attack! Attack!!
