What the Behavior of Physicians, Academics and Lawyers Says About IQ

I have noticed that many white and asian morons have a peculiar and obsessive belief about the supposed benefits of ‘high IQ’. I have previously expressed my cynicism about the rather questionable purpose and supposed benefits of civilization, and views on the dubiousness of the ‘high IQ’ argument are well-known. This post takes yet another angle to expose the fallacy of the ‘high IQ is better’ belief.

Let us look at three fairly common professions which are supposedly filled with ‘high IQ’ types. Most of you will agree that people who become physicians, academics and lawyers do actually score pretty high on IQ tests. But what do their professions, activities, beliefs, behaviors and impact on society tell us about IQ?

Let us start with Physicians. Have you ever wondered about what type of person gets into medical school, especially in N. America? The typical person who does so is good at things such as- writing essays full of the “right” lies, doing the “right” volunteer work, cheating in tests to get the “right” grades, blowing the “right” people etc. The vast majority people of people who go on to become physicians are reasonably clever with good memory and superficial, if somewhat geeky, charm.

But how many of them think beyond what they have learnt? How many of them question dogma? How many of them make the same mistakes that their colleagues make- just to fit in? How many of them ‘just do things’ because it makes them more money-regardless of the consequences for their patients? How many use Google for diagnosing illnesses? Here is my question- What part of their behavior justifies the supposed benefits of high IQ?

Moving on to Academia.. It supposedly contains some of the most intelligent and conscientious people. But is that really the case? What type of people are successful in academia, anyway? Contrary to their popular image as objective, poverty loving and rational truth-seekers the vast majority of successful academics are duplicitous and conformist CONartists who spend a lot of time begging from grant agencies, playing political games in committees, screwing over graduate students and post-docs and pretending to be knowledgeable about their supposed areas of expertise.

The reality is that your typical academic, especially under 65 years old, is closer to a dogmatic and dishonest priest than an intellectual free-spirit. They spent most of their supposed intellectual ability on perpetuating petty scams and acting self-righteous. They are, at best, poorly compensated and willing tools of an educational system that uses them as front men for even larger scams. Which part of their behavior is reflective of the supposed advantages of their high IQ? How does a hard-working and pretentious CONartist who makes the same amount of money as a high school teacher a good advertisement for the benefits of possessing a high IQ?

Now let us turn our attention to Lawyers. How many of you believe that having more lawyers would make the world a better place? If not- why not? Let us begin by, once again, asking ourselves the two basic questions- who becomes a successful lawyer and what do successful lawyers do? Based on what I have seen, people who are successful at being admitted into decent law schools are clever and underhanded workaholics who believe that they are the’chosen’ ones.

While lawyers from decent law schools probably make more than either physicians or academics, it is worthwhile to note that they do so by sucking money out the productive economy. Every dollar earned by a lawyer represents one dollar stolen from somebody who does productive work, and their occupation is not useful to society unlike the previous two occupation categories. If anything, they encourage the creation of more laws requiring even more lawyers and thereby reducing the opportunities and money for everybody else.

Having said that- did you notice a series of common threads which seem to run through the three occupation categories listed above?

1. All of the above mentioned occupations are cartels, which use assymetric information to exploit the rest of society.

2. The structure of these cartels and entry into them requires a very high degree of conformity with pre-existing dogma.

3. They do not participate in innovation or change for the better of society, and if anything vehemently resist it.

4. They pretend to care about the welfare of society while bleeding it dry- many of them even believe their own lies.

The bulk of evidence suggests that ‘high IQ’ people are clever and selfish shysters who are supreme conformists, lie a lot, slavishly worship tradition and have no interest in innovation. Their relationships with society, and effect on it, is rather similar to a slow-growing cancer or tumor on the body.

    What is interesting is that all these are high IQ but not REALLY IQ positions. Really high IQ, two standard deviations about the norm as opposed to one: tend to be just dysfunctional. The high IQ’ed, however, tend to be as whole reflections of the values of their society and play those values better than most. The fact that these people are degenerate in most cases reflects the values of our means of production.

    so diablo, does that mean that even though you are far more educated than I am and you could probably do better on an IQ test–though I could probably do better at a shooting range or an oldschool video game-are you saying that you aren’t any better than me?

    The academic, “is closer to a dogmatic and dishonest priest than an intellectual free-spirit.”

    “Every dollar earned by a lawyer represents one dollar stolen from somebody who does productive work”

    “All of the above mentioned occupations are cartels, which use assymetric information to exploit the rest of society.”

    “They pretend to care about the welfare of society while bleeding it dry- many of them even believe their own lies.”

    Priceless!

    Lowly jobs require a high degree of conformity as well. No matter how high or low the position, adherence to an industry’s central dogmas is compulsory. Walmart employees are exposed to pep talks that mimic cult meetings. Fast food employees wear uniforms, speak with scripted soundbytes, and rigidly follow procedures like automatons.

    And while the white man and asian had medicine, the rule of law and a system of education, the African was running around in a loin cloth without a written language relying on his superstitious shaman to get the circumcision right.

    Oh, and they were run by primitive cartels too. They were just called tribal chiefs

    IQ matters. Deal with it

      I suppose you’ve never heard of the fact that Black people achieved civilization before any of the other races of man and even gave it to them. When Black people had medicine, the rule of law and a system of education, Whites were still living in caves. Just because the roles have been reversed recently doesn’t mean that it was always so or will always remain so.

    high IQ = sociopathy. Just look at Asians. They don’t see a dog as a man’s best friend. I’m guessing you’re all aware of the incident of the little girl getting ran over multiple times with people just walking by. They’re soulless and not creative at all.

    Three times my life has been saved by a high IQ doctor. A high IQ attorney not only helped me survive a vicious onslaught by a bunch of low IQ bureaucrats, but he helped me to understand the reasons for how fucked up the system is, allieviating a lot of anger.

    On the other hand, I’ve been stymied, fucked over, cheated, and betrayed by quite a few low IQ low lifes.

    I’ll go with the guys who helped us attain this high standard of living over those who run around with sharp sticks.

    Dude, just because you don’t have a high IQ, it doesn’t mean you should chastise all the people who do. For one, I also have a very low IQ. I’m also dyslexic. Though your topic of conversation is very strong and it is true that a high IQ doesn’t mean extreme genius, you seem to be jealous of people who are in a better profession than you. Physicians, Academics and lawyers are an integral part of the system. Just blaming them of treachery and fraud doesn’t make you any better than them. Not every person is alike and not every official is corrupt. Grow up, kid.

    To be honest, I as an African man with a profound love of academia must disagree with your statement that blatantly stereotypes millions ( ~7 billion in all reality) of honest and hard-working people. Frankly, it is quite evident that you are simply jealous of those who are a bit superior than you, in any respect, and you respond by writing a hateful, ignorant, and, personally, demeaning piece of your mind on the internet. Way to go, these men and women put in more hours while you, the real “genius”, get to sit on your ass and complain about how they scored higher than you on a math test, went to an Ivy league on merit scholarship, learned calculus at a younger age than you learned to speak, etc. While your at it, write a letter to the people who manage the Stanford-Binet and inform them of their “cretinous” ideas of thought processes and intelligence in general. By the way, English is a fifth language for me. Though I myself am only a farmer, one that wouldn’t come within an inch of Mensa on a standardised IQ test, I still feel that IQ is a gift, as is athletic ability, or really any talent in the world. You seemed to have forgotten the countless “intellectuals” that have acted in movies in past decades, and racked in millions of dollars for showing their primped up ass on camera. They are just “brilliant” and would probably do well enough on your “unbiased improvement” to the IQ test to make it into Harvard Medical School. Oh wait, I think you have to go to an ACCREDITED college, get good grades, and, what do you know, take a test to get into medical school, law school, and graduate school. So all I have to really say, maybe it isn’t that doctors, lawyers, professors, etc. are inherently more intelligent, but their hours of dedication as students in a sense forces their IQ to be higher. When you simply dabble in courses such as Biology, Chemistry, Physics, all the very forces that compose the very world around us, you feel a bit of enlightenment.
