About: Jordan Peterson - Controversial Facts about IQ
I have been taught in school that IQ is useless and that it does not quantify intelligence, but it was used as a test to see if a subject is able to enter the academic atmosphere.
But what have we learned about intelligence from your studies into the social hierarchy of lobsters?
So he still hasn't convinced me that throwing out the whole field of psychology is a bad idea. Get rid of IQ tests and the whole pseudoscience of psychology. Kill two birds with one stone.
IQ tests are designed to correlate highly with what we define as success, in school and after. Then we define intelligence as that quality that allows us to be successful. Then we say that iq testing is scientifically valid because it correlates very highly with what we call success. And how do we know this to be true? Because we can measure intelligence with IQ tests and it correlates very highly with success. Wash, rinse ,repeat. Does anyone else see a problem here?
Jordan “what do you mean by” Peterson
I want to take an IQ test now. If I am dumb, at least I have an excuse to become a looser.
Well can someone explain why he said smart people go to university?
I mean what if someone made the wrong choice or what if someone dumb who studies hard and passes uni?
So many questions
"Intelligence is a major predictor of life success."
I guess that proves that I am
a dummy, after all.
If the IQ score really would mean something, all those MENSA people wouldn't jerk off too it. It surely measures something, but certainly not the intelligence.
Very misleading. Towards the end, he’s hinting at genetics as being a major indicator of IQ when he asserts that distinct
traits that are in the realm of “emotional intelligence” don’t contribute heavily towards scoring well on IQ tests. Further hinting when he asks for you to choose between babies with certain IQs as though raw DNA can help measure that number at all.
65 or 145, 65 is actually closer to "normal". Doesn't matter if you're smarter or dumber than then rest, you will have a hard time on both sides of the spectrum. The difference is the potential of leaving a legacy to humanity.
Am I the only one who doesn’t understand half the stuff this guy is saying?
But Adam ruins everything said this was bullshit lol
What usually is the sacrifice for having IQ?

I love it at the end, I think he's just pointing at someone to let him/her ask a quesiton, but it looks like it's pointing at the person and saying "if YOU have any sense"
Assuming you guys like to read:
1. IQ is largely a pseudoscientific swindle. https://medium.com/incerto/iq-is-largely-a-pseudoscientific-swindle-f131c101ba39
2. Does IQ Really Predict Job Performance? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4557354/
To incite you to delve in, from Richardson and Norgate (2015):
The claim that the IQ-job performance correlation increases with job complexity is not born out in more recent studies.
There remains great uncertainty about the interpretation of IQ-job performance correlations and great caution needs to be exercised in using them as a basis for the validity of IQ tests and associated concepts.
It is true to say that various attempts have been made to correlate test scores with some cortical/physiological measures in order to identify cerebral “efficiency” as the core of intelligence. However, as Nisbett et al. (2012), in their review for the American Psychological Association, point out, such studies have been inconsistent:
Smart people go to university? Haha, a debatable statement these days.
This is what happens when you try to measure something you haven't defined.
