Can you refute it or did I offend you by indirectly calling you a dummy?

He must be a pretty sharp guy judging by where he is now and what he's done with his life.

Stupid people do not rise to such positions by sheer dumb luck.

Trump is not an idiot by any stretch of the imagination.

I actually think he does have a high IQ..

Who was it some fox news woman. She was pretending not to know simple words for the audience and she's like a double major at Harvard 4.0

It's scary how many actors are out there.

I already researched this smartarse. 148 is about the lowest I could estimate his IQ at. It's more than likely a few points higher...


Well then - where is the support and sources from 'your assessment'?

Kruger-Dunning applies again.

So do you think Trump is a dummy?

I'm sure he remembers his name, well most of the times at least

I'm sure the topic has been discussed, though the ATS search didn't indicate anything too recent. I figured the recent remark Mr. Trump made about comparing his and Tillerson's IQ's would make this a timely discussion.

So, how did you come to the calculation of 148?

IQ's are like penises.

Some are big, some are not.

Regardless, it's what you do with it that counts.

Tact is not part of a person's IQ. In fact, I think science has stated in the past that there is a clear divide between emotional intelligence and traditional markers of intelligence. Very intelligent (genius) people frequently are seen to have high degrees of interpersonal hostility, they are expressive in their frustrations, and they tend to not focus on issues they see as trivial (such as tact and diplomacy) instead jumping straight to solutions that are statistically the most effective despite those solutions having the highest degree of emotional angst tied to them. There is also a lot of evidence that higher IQ individuals lean towards the more base emotional states... either you're doing something that feels good and experiencing happiness or you are dealing with something unpleasant and you're pissed off... very little middle ground and very little nuance, not to mention very little reason to mask your present state of feels in the name of social tact, so they let it all hang out, so to speak.

The modern expectations of diplomacy, tact, and empathy being expected to go hand in hand with intellect isn't accurate nor rationale. It's a Hollywood construct based on fantasies and a perfect world scenario which simply doesn't exist. Charming actors have played roles in which they were portraying a genius... that doesn't mean the genius was charming nor does the role osmose itself into the actor's head making him or her an actual genius.

I honestly believe a lot of the things that people rip President Trump for are social in nature and, frankly, point to him actually being very probably a genius IQ. I also believe that many of the things people found most charming about Reagan and Obama pointed to less than genius IQs. Emotionally they were brilliant, and Reagan was highly skilled at delegating which served him very well, but emotional intellect doesn't translate to much in terms of actual higher level thinking and is, in fact, anathema to higher level thinking due to the simple fact that emotions are not a thought process in any way.

Anyone that thinks Trump is a dummy is a dummy.


I think eloquence of speech indicates a person's IQ is likely to be higher. Eloquence requires a broad vocabulary and understanding of grammar.

If I'm not mistaken, there is a verbal component to an IQ test.

There are plenty of people right here on ATS that are very eloquent but clearly lack in the IQ department.

You have to understand that Trump does have a high IQ - in his own universe. You know, the one where Nambia is a country and Putin is a God.

I never called him a moron. However, I believe Buggs Bunny used the term maroon. That makes a lot more sense to me.

Trump outsmarted both parties together less than a year ago. I think he's right.


I'll give him that. But it really doesn't take a lot of brain power to manipulate people who are full of fear and self-pity.

It's classified.

The man is smart.
Certain types of wise individuals know how
to hire the right people.
Once in a while an individual with both attributes
rises to their natural born ability of leadership.

Intelligent Quotient test results vary
among'st the same individual at different times,
so don't put all your stock in that.
Hell, I had a 160 test result many years back,
and I am still an idiotic fool most of the time.
