COLUMBUS , Ohio – It doesn't take a rocket scientist to make a lot of money, according to new research.
A nationwide study found that people of below average intelligence were, overall, just about as wealthy as those in similar circumstances but with higher scores on an IQ test.
Furthermore, a number of extremely intelligent people stated they had gotten themselves into financial difficulty...
“Intelligence is not a factor for explaining wealth. Those with low intelligence should not believe they are handicapped, and those with high intelligence should not believe they have an advantage.”

Completely agree with the original OP. People have a penchant for various things, and often those specializations don't translate across to different areas. I myself have a touch of dislexia, and I can't remember the last time I made a post without having to go over it several times and correct it, in spite of a fairly high typing speed. Does that make me a lesser person? Well, who knows. I don't care if it does.
