Quick Hits: Are You Smarter Than an SJW? Edition

This pyrsyn, who has the pronoun "THEM" tattooed on THEM's neck, tries to broker a truce between the pansexuals and the bisexuals. The bisexuals say the term "pansexual" is an attempt to engage in "bi erasure," and eliminate their descriptor by coining another descriptor that says mostly the same thing.

I know exactly what you're all thinking: You're all thinking, "FINALLY, someone is talking some sense about all this pansexual-bisexual infighting! At last, THE VOICE OF REASON!"

I'm submitting her for a Nobel Peace Prize. I think she'll be inducted on the first ballot.

This person is definitely mentally stable and we should totally reconfigure all of society in order to adapt ourselves to her perfectly-normal patterns of thought.

This racist, Zembabwe-prelude madness will not stop until we "rise up," as Democrat politicians say, and "get in their faces," as another Democrat politician says.

Someone needs to start a national organization dedicated to taking over the local schoolboards.

Finally: six people were asked to rank the intelligence of themselves versus a group of five strangers. (So six rankings in all.)

They did this based on superficial knowledge, like what field they work in and where they went to college -- if at all.

And, I'm going to postulate: Based on SJW factors, too. Like "White Men, they're the worst, amirite?"

So below, an SJW declares herself to be the second smartest (I think everyone figured out the Asian guy must be really smart) and the Dumb White Guy (ytpipa, amirite?) as the stupidest.

Let's see how that worked out for her.

After all that embarrassing bragging and smug arrogance, could it have possibly been anything else?

Oh, the guy the group decided was the least intelligent is a... Marine.

So that's why they thought he was less intelligent.

Here's the longer video. Key quote: Asking the Marine, "Can't anybody do your job?"

The Dunning-Krueger Syndrome

It's real and it's spectacular.

No, seriously, Dunning-Kreuger is in massive effect here. This woman has an IQ of 112. That is decently above-average, of course.

But it's not a huge IQ. Not at all. Statistically, they call it an "AllahPundit level IQ."

Presumably this woman had some idea of her IQ.

So how could she have walked into a room with five strangers and thought that a 112 IQ would take the silver?

This is Dunning-Krueger-- the least competent people greatly overestimate their level of competence because their level of competence is so low they can't imagine what true high competence even looks like.

Somehow she hypnotized herself into thinking that the IQ scale effectively tops out at 120.

(She might have assumed that the sampling was rigged to have one high IQ person, one modestly high IQ person, two average IQs, one below average IQ, and one IQ in the profoundly sub-normal range of a Chris "Prison Lips" Cillizza. But then, she couldn't have thought that -- most of the people in the group had backgrounds indicating above-average IQ. She would have had to know that this panel was loaded to the average-to-high spectrum. Unless she is a Dunning-Krueger Dum-Dum, of course!)

Well, at least her schools taught her self-esteem. That's what matters.

That last one thanks to bonhomme, who got it from Lauren Southern.

A friend is a former Marine who got hired as a lab tech despite no scientific background (he was a welder with an associates degree) and what was funny is that he was better than the college grads with degrees in chemistry. It was probably at least in part because he understood that there were lots of things he didn't know, so I didn't look down his nose at others or feel like he was too smart to ask a stupid question.

57 The bisexuals say the term "pansexual" is an attempt to engage in "bi erasure," and eliminate their descriptor by coining another descriptor that says mostly the same thing.
++++
And in the current context, they actually have a point. The reason for the confusion between traditional bisexuality and pansexuality is due to the oppressive, artificial social constructions that still linger over our sexual marketplace.

Someone who is sexually attracted to men and women is bisexual, while someone who is sexually attracted to men and women and trans persons may be more accurately considered to be pansexual in some contexts. Likewise for racial considerations - someone who is bi-attracted but not cross-racially attracted is bisexual but not pansexual. In addition, the oppressive and antiquated restrictions that act as an overhang on sexuality - for example, age or trans questions - continue to require that we redefine terms as that overhang is eroded.

It is better to sort out these questions now, before they become an increasing source of potential oppression as we continue to evolve sexual practices and mores.

The first one I took I was 1 point away from gifted, my parents made me feel like I was semi retarded since my friend next door was 1 higher.

The last time I saw him was in 1982, he was washing windows at a McD's. I took a second one in prep school, and landed about the same, very high but not amaze-o-tron. In HS I knew an entire family that was in the stratosphere. All math whizzes, musical prodigies etc. And yet they lived in a crappy little house and none of them seemed to be able to apply themselves to move beyond. I mean, great you can play 7 instruments and speak 5 languages and you're an accountant in a firm with a bunch of dimwits in cubicles next to you. Go fig.

Oh, it did. I moved to NoVa 23 years ago, Loudoun was about 60% Red, its' now about 60% Blue,. That's a lot of swing.

Loudoun has a lot of techies not just gubmint employees. And while they have tech sector values, they believe a lot alot alot in their smartness and you better believe it how smart their kids are. And the Left started effing with the schools that are among the top rated in the country and not to mention property values. It is no conservative wave, trust me.

The military were some of the first to really use IQ tests, because getting smart soldiers into intellectually demanding jobs was literal life or death. They also discovered that below a certain point, it simply was impossible to make a good soldier. You need a certain cognitive level in order to remain disciplined, follow orders, but also be able to think on your feet when the situation on the ground changes.

236 PS - And my advice is for the parents I know who are more blue than me...my kids, who have grown up in a much more faith-based environment, know not to enter this particular phase...they always ask me how to handle it when this happens, and then my other rule kicks in, that everyone is allowed to be spectacularly wrong about at least one thing in life - it doesn't mean you have to stop being their friend. So, you can stay friends - you just don't discuss the issue, and you change the subject if it comes up...and if that's not good enough, then you re-evaluate.

277 Apparently I test pretty well. I took a Wonderlic at a job interview once. It's kind of a practical intelligence test. They give it at the NFL combine.

The Wonderlic test is used at the NFL scouting combine, with quarterbacks and offensive linemen usually posting higher scores than the average of 20. The test is used to measure general cognitive ability in three areas: math, vocabulary, and reasoning. The test has 50 multiple choice questions that are to be answered in 12 minutes.

So, anyway, I got a 47. The company said it was the highest score they have ever seen from an applicant. They also declined to offer me a job. So, eh.

304 All of the military tests are designed to test what you are capable of learning, not what you have learned. That counts for the ASVAB, DLAB, NFQT and almost every other basic test the military has.


The base line assumption is an 8th grade education in math, reading and writing comprehension when you walk into the ASVAB. The NFQT is a Navy Nuke math heavy test and is somewhat of an outlier because it tests your basic and advanced learning math abilities. The DLAB is a language test that consists of a made up language to test your ability to learn a foreign language. Every test the military uses has been time tested over decades to determine a recruits ability to learn. They are not testing what you have learned like a standard IQ test and they can't really be compared to standard IQ tests.

Because the pointless lockdowns and school closures damaged so many children's educations (apparently only 25% of students remained at grade level), the "gifted" classes that were for the unusually bright students to be removed and challenged have now been populated by all the students that are doing completely normal grade level work, and the regular classroom time when those students leave the room are now for remedial instruction to the students that are no longer at grade level.

Yay The Science!

I don't think ANYONE believes cops go around murdering black people for no reason. How many of the recent shooting that BLM got so worked up over where caused by a black person calling the cops to stop a crime?

I think the notion is more that urban yutes are owed something and the cops are bastards because they get in the way of them getting it.

You beat me to it. I would have ranked myself #1 . . . and based on the scores at the end, I don't think I would have been wrong.

But otherwise, I wouldn't have ranked anyone else. It's obviously a psych experiment intended to learn about or even humiliate the test subject.

Do I say the white guy has high IQ? I must be racist for assuming that. Do I say the white guy has low IQ? I must be suffering from class bias to look down on him for being a marine. Do I say the white guy is smarter than a minority woman? Uh oh, don't you dare say that. Very problematic!

But the main point isn't so much that the experiment is designed to humiliate, it's that people should have the humility to know that you don't know other people's IQs. I think the lack of humility goes hand-in-hand with liberal ideas about "redistributing wealth." The government can move wealth around but it can't transfer IQ points. The "expert class" thinks it is entitled to manage everything and to decide how smart everyone is.

Hey f---face, I'm as smart as the test says I am. I'm not only as smart as you think I deserve to be.

As with most things it trickled down (there's a visual) to the high school girls and then the middle school and so on.

That's why I ignore all the actresses ( who coincidentally are having a dry time as far as paying roles) who come out as bi. It's meaningless unless they do cunnilingus right there in the video. It's words and they throw around meaningless words for a living.

My understanding is the military *wants* and has plenty of people who are very intelligent.

I've done some quick and dirty internet research on IQ. Average IQ for people who earn doctorates is about 120-125. According to Vox Day a National Merit Scholarship *used* to mean an IQ of about 140 which is pretty dang high. I attended an Ivy League university for undergraduate and graduate school and was surprised how many classmates had one.

I was given an IQ test after a traumatic brain injury in 2015. I didn't ask for that - it was part of a neuropsychological assessment of cognitive function - and frankly I didn't want to know but the doctor told me my number. Let's just say it was higher than 112.

112 is good. According to an IQ level/percentile calculator that's higher than about 78% of the population. In a room with 5 strangers there's about a 50/50 chance she's the smartest person present.

359 > Yeah. Fluid sexuality poses a such a profound problem to the "born this way" thesis - which is, of course, the underpinning of the entire gay rights agenda - that the logical paradox should blow one or the other completely to pieces.

"Born this way" was an argument stopper that arose as a way to combat the Christian ethos in America that said, "I believe that you are engaging in a sin, but I love you anyway. I will help you in whatever way I can to stop living this sinful life."

It goes to the heart of the issue. Is homosexuality immutable or not? If it's intrinsic, then telling people they are sinful by being what they are is at least wrong-headed.

However, if you're a traditional Christian, you believe that the person's soul is in danger and they are harming their relationship to God.

"Born this way" was designed to shut down that conversation and to guilt Christians into not following their beliefs. It's been remarkably effective. Only hardline Christians even try to have this conversation anymore.

374 They are not testing what you have learned like a standard IQ test

Standard IQ tests do not test what you've learned, and are typically given to kids aged ~12. They're basically exercises in pattern recognition ("complete the series ... showing a triangle, a rectangle, a pentagon, ..."). Raven's Matrices, for example, is a non-verbal IQ test that can be given to the illiterate.

375 "Born this way" was designed to shut down that conversation and to guilt Christians into not following their beliefs. It's been remarkably effective. Only hardline Christians even try to have this conversation anymore.

Yes, and it also allowed the debate to be recast along the lines of race - discrimination against or attempting to change someone's immutable characteristics of birth is wrong.

But whether or not "Born this way" is true is irrelevant. It cannot survive in combination with modern sexual fluidity concepts. One or the other has to die, because to have both is a contradiction that cannot survive if one is being even remotely honest.

Thankfully, no one is even remotely honest.

376 Marine recruiter talked me into a practice ASVAB, sat me down gave me the time limit.
I finished, he scoffed because there was so much time left.
Got one wrong... and I was pissed and wanted to know which one and what the answer was.
Told him I wouldn't fuck it up on the real one.

I recognize the practice is not the real test.
Posted by: Dr. Inogame at June 10, 2021 03:40 PM (53oGX)

If anyone has someone they know considering the military, and they are still in high school, have them take the ASVAB in high school. Most schools offer it. It is an easier test. The scores will be several points higher and it may offer up more career opportunities.

"Within the Marine Corps, there are specialists charged with training others to survive in an environment where there may be chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear (CBRN) threats. When any of these hazards are present, CBRN defense specialists know what protective measures to take in combat and other situations, and they train other Marine personnel in these techniques."

Which, now that I think of it, was what I was considering when I explored the idea of joining the AF Reserve when my babies were little. But, little babies you know? I finally decided against being away for weeks at a time for training.

463 Try to pick the most artistic person just from knowing their IQ and you're basically flying blind.

Oddly enough, I scored higher on IQ because of my artistic ability. I dont know if they still do this but the kids test used to have you draw a picture of a person and they judged based on what you put into it (not talent but details and observation). I have almost no memory of the test, but apparently I drew an amazingly detailed figure, down to buttons and shoelaces etc which amazed the tester.

That makes me suspect I'm not nearly as smart as they say, just observant and keen in memory for certain kinds of details.

Both of my sisters are MD's, both valedictorians and at the top of their class at UTSW med school. My mom, who died a month after I was born, her parents and grandparents were all scientists in Germany.

I was shipped out to the farm to be raised by my dad's parents. I took the easy route. Dropped out of HS at 15 and started selling antiques. Traveled a lot, partied constantly and retired at 60.

First year he was top-marks on the empathy assessment. The next year he dropped to middlin'. The wife was curious so she asked to see both the results and the test itself. He got wrong some BS question that was worded like "I can understand how difficult it is to be homeless. Y/N." He said no - because he knows homeless is such a big deal, he can't even imagine how trying that has to be on somebody, and won't pretend to even imagine just how hard that is.

523 I had a friend going through psych school and he was specializing in testing so he gave me a thorough multi-whatever test and apparently I was the "smartest" person he ever tested.

I went through most of it frustrated that I wasn't scoring perfectly.

But I've learned the trick since then: Don't use your brain. It IS way too slow. ;-)

Ha! I'll keep that in mind.

I know it isn't important and it's not that I really CARE but I sincerely wish I knew how I scored when I was a kid.

524 516 Any IQ test that doesn't factor your age is invalid.

Actually, the two test I did were 20 years apart and I scored the same. These tests aren't something you can study for. They use patterns and logic to give the person the means to solve a problem. If you guess and get it wrong, it detracts from the score.

526 Great artists, perhaps. I've known many good artists that were just complete dunces scholastically. It's a kind of intelligence, certainly. Certain types of art require high spatial awareness acuity.

527 They failed to take into account-- why didn't he go to college? Never stopped to consider he as a white male would have the hardest time getting accepted. That women/minorities would be given preferential treatment. No consideration that he'd have a harder time getting scholarships and his family may not have had the financial resources to go. That the absence of college degree may have been due to lack of opportunity, or interest, not ability or intelligence or ambition.
Had a lot of very, very smart folks working for me in the military. I never assumed I was smarter than any of them, because you never knew. They over time became experts in their specialty and it was my job to get their honest assessment of the situation to make fully informed decisions.

528 They try to snipe the answer instead of being methodical.

Social media and popular TV shows have trained everyone to be snarky and score points with the sickest burn, no matter the context. Its a serious problem with social interaction.

529 Then I went to work on some code written by people who were VERY easily bored, and OMG I wanna die.
Posted by: moviegique at June 10, 2021 04:15 PM (dhFCT)

LOL. OMG.

I laughed. No hyperbole. Genuinely laughed.

530 Anyone want to know what my IQ is?

531 Synova-- That was perhaps laughter of recognition?

532 Not my comment, but from the Twitter feed:

"How am I supposed to listen to someone who looks like they fell face first into the arts and crafts box?"

Haha

Or GI Bill. Military first and then they pay for college.

534 There are somewhere around 20 videos about that video. Reactions and discussions.

535 The two people in the most affected outfits ranked lowest on intelligence? Color me surprised.

536 Her IQ is, by definition, 12% above average.

537 My EQ does a wonderful job of balancing out my IQ. Or, as always makes my long-suffering wife chuckle, "Managing engineers is all about managing degrees of autism."

538 She is probably the smartest out of her acquaintances. An education major has avg IQ 105. The other liberal arts are barely above that.

539 Hey I wuz a Marine, an I takes offence at thes remmurk!
Plase escuse the shaking crayon riting.

I'd like to see any of these experts do something simple for a Marine like disassembling, repairing and reassembling a Machine Gun while under fire. Or navigate across broken terrain using a map and compass.

540 She's not only the dumbest - she's the dumbest by a GOOD MARGIN.

All the rest were clustered pretty closely in the high-120 to mid-130 range. She was ALL THEY WAY DOWN at 112.

I called it at the start when she started talking about what her COMPANY did - and never told them what her ACTUAL JOB was. Classic sign of somebody who knows goddamn well their job is crap, and they try to leech off their company's prestige.

The real slammer was when she literally said that she didn't think an IQ test would be part of it, "I thought we would be looking at social media". Like what the actual FUCK? How in the name of fucking God would they use SOCIAL MEDIA to test intelligence.
