FWIW

Which is nothing.

You're right, because we all know freight truck drivers and college professors are interchangeable.  I mean really, if Stephen Hawkins was mobile, he'd be fighting fires right now.

If I had a shipload of containers that I needed moved overland, I sure as hell wouldn't want a bunch of college professors trying to do it.

Intelligence involves lots of variables.  Trying to chart it one-dimensionally is a mistake.

 :D

Um, straw man much?

Look, I'm sorry. The way I responded to your post was rude. I disagree with your basic assumptions, but I don't really care much. So I'm sorry to have jumped in. Please carry on arguing with . . . whomever it is you think is arguing that freight truck drivers and college professors are "interchangeable," whatever that means  :D

I think that "Stephen Hawkins" might actually be a truck driver.

This link supports my original argument about mean and range. Look at the distribution difference between MDs and Attorneys.

Actually, the first thing I thought when I looked at that link was "Wow, that StevePirates guy is way off base.  Way off base.  I mean, look at those distributions"

StevePirates, you couldn't be more wrong.  This is my thread and we have minimum standards here.  You may no longer post in this thread because you obviously have no idea what you're talking about and because I find the factual errors in your reasoning too much to bear.

I'm part of that 'we', right?

Everybody except that non-sense spewing StevePirates is a part of the "we."  Shame on you StevePirates.
