    I'm a 183 cm tall left-handed Asian who Produces music and learned how to play instruments autodidact, I'm also great at drawing and creating new creatures and languages and for me, to think divergent or to be creative is the first priority for the coming generation. I'm also a philosopher. But does it makes me smart? Nahh. (ps I'm a night owl too, but maybe cause I want to avoid seeing or hearing other peeps sometimes)

    This shit isn't measurable. But what is measurable is iq and men are extremely more likely to be genius or retarded. The thumbnail is dishonest.

    Would be interested in seeing a study comparing the IQs of those who primarily rely on television for their "news" and information vs those who go to independent journalists on non-corporate websites and youtube channels. It's a fair bet the latter are quite a bit smarter.

    It is actually the baby of the house that it the smartest as they get to watch everyone progress and they learn throughout life. The thing about the first born being smartest was most likely written by the first born child.
