What I ment to say (which you deliberatly missed) is that education is not neccessary for a high IQ, meaning a unedcuated person can be the smartest person in the world, but I also said that education can help intelligence develop even further.

Education is a bonus, not a neccessety for a high IQ
Not for an IQ no, but for an IQ TEST ;)

Of course it's doesn't mean you have a low IQ :rolleyes: Talk about misinterpretation.

Never mind, let's drop this

Actually, it's just that IQ tests are biased towards the literate. If you can't read or write, you get 0 in any IQ test you answer. It doesn't mean you're stupid.
True, but the level of literacy required is quite low. The language is only a tool to convey what kind of thought process the test candidate must go through. They don't ask you to interpret long, scientific words. As long as you can understand the words "what" "number" "comes" "next", all candidates are on a pretty level playing field...

If you can't read or write despite attempts at trying to learn, then maybe that does say something about your IQ :undecide::lazy:
