Higher IQ is a function of how educated you are, right? In other words a homesteader from a hundred years ago was taught to hunt fish, trap game, skin and gut an animal, grow food, build shelter, make fire, clothing, weapons, tools, etc, etc.
A Harvard Nobel prize winner would die in that environment, how stupid he would look to that way back mountain man?
Considering that IQ is a measure of problem-solving skills and ability to understand logic. If you had both of these people being trained for the same purposes (e.g. building), which one do you expect to build a better shelter? The one who sucks at math, or simply memorizes formulas? Or is it the one who excels at math and understands its principles based on its logic rather than strict memorization?
Besides, he probably had little clue that the bosses he worked for are determined to reduce the global population down to 200-500 million.
