IQ is based upon statistical information. So you're saying IQ tests are
false measurements of intellect, right?

(SUMMARY OF THIS POSTING)
This is a standard argument:
IQ doesn't exist!
But if it did, I'd be smarter than you!
(HOW'S THAT FOR LOGIC!?)
BTW, how many times do you have to take an IQ test before you can use
words like "consistently" when referring to your scores. For someone
who has no faith in IQ you seem quite committed to it.

(P.S. don't feel bad, I still say you're smarter than me. I had to look
up the word "fatuity." How fatuous of me.)
