<< Especially, for me, the notion that widespread use of IQ tests has
the old social fabric--and caused unhappiness, even suffering, for people
many other fine qualities. IQ as the mismeasure of man, if you will.
I might have time to read it thoroughly in the next couple of months. If so,
I believe there is emotional and social intelligence, which as reported in
another thread, permits scientists and engineers to get out-flanked by people
of a lesser mathematical capability, then they possess. Notice how
Stalin,Hitler,Mao, and their ilk lasted, and out-flanked their more capable
victims? Its a horrid, shame that such occurred (occurs) yet it can, indeed,
occur, if one can whip up the masses, and the "security forces".
