    I'm pretty sure that the jump in intelligence had more to do with the proctor of the test than the subject.

    To be fair, they should do an opposite study.

    Re: Beauty and Brains

    The large number of 11 or 14 points is a fairly substantive number. Going from from an IQ of 120 to 132 with a few good looks is moving up the totem pole of intelligentsia. Do better looking people get better teaching efforts from their teachers or is it just inherent in the genes?
