IQ isnâ€™t all itâ€™s cracked up to be. Psychologist Elaine Castles argues that intelligence canâ€™t be boiled down to a single number. She points out that IQ tests are far less likely to measure potential than they are to measure how much money your parents make. And author David Shenk says that the entire idea of looking at geniuses as separate from the rest of us, blessed from birth with intelligence, is flawed. He views genius as a collection of skills that develop over time. When we see someone push the boundaries of what humans can do, itâ€™s because theyâ€™ve worked hard and thought outside the box. People might be born with certain predispositions, but innate talent isnâ€™t as important as our society thinks it is.
