By that logic, what is it about bettas that draws people with high IQs to this forum? I mean what are the odds that so many people here have such a high IQ?xD
I think IQ is dumb. I took a test when I was little, all I remember is that it had something with shapes and I had to know what the word nostalgia meant.. o___O
About the whole, street smarts, emotional, book smart thing. I have met all types and I think it's pretty rare for people to be smart in more than one of these categories.
Meet so many "genius" kids that have trouble making friends and everyone thinks they're weird (Sheldon from Big Bang!) Likewise those "street" kids that never seem to grasp concepts in learning.
