The only real mark of an educated person is one learns enough to comprehend how little one really knows. 

 

As for innate intelligence, like IQ? That's a stupid measuring stick, like measuring basketball players strictly by height. I know a guy who brags about having an IQ in the 160s, and he (seriously) can't hold a job as a janitor. Plus, he's a jerk0ff on top of it.

Worse: he's got an MBA from an Ivy League school. That he got in 1984: to be a white guy in his mid-20s, with an Ivy MBA, at that point in the economic history of are country, was to have a free pass to walk into the public square at high noon, jerk off the statue, and have money emanate from the statue's genitals. And he couldn't do jack (har!) with it. 

 

If you take away the dopers, the drunks, and the gamblers, then I don't think you can find someone with an Ivy MBA who's a bigger loser than him -- and his IQ is off the charts. It's why IQ as a measuring stick is, by itself, almost completely meaningless.
