Another way to look at intelligence trends=
95 and below - rely on common sense and basic logic. Thus, practical and resistant to change.
96-110 - think they are a lot more intelligent than they really are, thus they tend to be liberal psuedo-intellectuals
110+ - wide range of perspectives, depends on how broad the individuals education is, as people in this bracket tend towards highly specialized
educations and vocations. However, I would suspect a significant trend towards concepts of freedom, liberty, and self-reliance, no matter the
influence their education might have on their specific perspectives.
Obviously, I'm being somewhat silly here, but my point is that the data means nothing. The peak IQ range on that graph isn't exactly an overwhelming
intellect, but it is around the point where a lot of people start to think themselves much more intelligent than they are, and take on an arrogant air
of intellectual superiority, which trends very far to the left. More telling data would be if you started to really get into exceptionally intelligent
people, not just those who believe themselves to me.
