Well...Perhaps you should tell us in what upper IQ range you belong to. Do you hover any where near Marilyn vos Savant with her 238? Or maybe down further around 120-150 with the rest of us apes?
I'll be looking for you on the boards.

A person has every right to their considerations regardless of if where it applies- religion, morality, politics, or even internet forums. Most problems in our civilization persist because man cannot yet differentiate between those trivial consideration and the true test of any action, ethics. It is the intelligent thing to do. But that is a topic for another thread, I wouldn't want this topic removed for violating decorum.
In Aristotle's view, when a person acts in accordance with his nature and realises his full potential, he will do good and be content.
Hedonism posits that the principle ethic is maximizing pleasure and minimizing pain.
Post-structuralism and postmodernism are both heavily theoretical and follow a fragmented, anti-authoritarian course which is absorbed in narcissistic and near nihilistic activities.

The problem with touting an IQ, that is above normal, is that it is only a measure of potential or relative intellectual capacity. It does not mean that a person with a 'high' IQ is rational, sane or even functional in everyday life. There are many instances where persons having a high IQ are still considered abnormal and perhaps even dangerous; look into the studies done on many serial killers and you will find that a disproportional amount have high IQs. Also, talk to a psychiatrist and (assuming they are willing to be frank) I bet they will tell you that some of their most dysfunctional patients are, in fact, possessors of a high IQ.
Having a high IQ is only one aspect of being human. Just like having large muscles doesn't automatically mean you are brave or tough; a high IQ doesn't necessarily mean that your mind is 'better' than anyone else's.
I have a high IQ, I don't wipe my own butt either, but then again I am also very, very rich.
