Drunken Geniuses: Intelligence And Alcohol Consumption

July 25, 2013

drunken-geniuses-infographic.jpg

This is an infographic about intelligence and alcohol consumption. Basically smarter people are more likely to drink more. Unless you're me, in which case you're more likely to be dumb and drink more. I can can barely tie my own shoes but I can make a case of beer disappear like a f***ing magician.

Thanks to Pamela and Jack, who were both involved in making the infographic so please direct any complaints to them.

    Note that educational iq, is a former of iq, however there is a broader spectrum as of current. The initial intentions of iq tests where designed to see who knew the material, not who could just do it. Wich states that grades themselves do not reflect iq, neither does a degree, however your ability to perform well in an educational inviroment reflects memory and social iq, as well as dies your inability to perform well in school, but we'll on the iq exams, such as yearly school mandatory exams or government exams showcases your ability and depth of comprehensive or deductive iq. So..literally all your comments are wrong, save for the last one.

    Btw, I wrote this drunk. XD I may have mispelled or mistyped 1 to 2 words, and I also accidentally left out that the fact idiots tend to die from alchoholic automobile accidents and genetic disfunction is in a simple sense, Darwinism, ever constant.

    I love how the comments died as soon as everyone got the whole ,"this is bullshit", concept well placed. I was in the 99percentile, in middle, and high school as far as the state wide yearly exams went. I was in honors, spirit, and star classes, until highscool, where I only attended 1 honors class for english, 1 for science, and 2 star classes, on for chem, and one for bio. My final year of school, I already had 5 more credits then graduate neccessary, and only attended 3 classes out of 8. I am recently 3 days into being 20. And I'm an alchoholic. A very very high functioning alchoholic, whose going to ppcc to get my prerects to attend med school to become a diagnostic doctor. So... it seems to me, upon very brief analysis of you veerrrrry redundant concerns and common complaints. (Get it? I prestated redundant then followed it up by stating "common"? Lol) That the main issue is, morons who can't fathom their own limitations, drink and no drive when they shouldn't, and literally all cases of diabetes are predetermined genetically so.... your concerns, rebuttals, and statements are as flawed andndnd your delusional mentalities. I just love how people refute the answers they don't like, to the questions they all ask. Especially when the answer is statistically accurate. Do your own research and quit seeping about if you have an issue with facts. No one cares about how you feel.
    To put it simply for you.

    Alastor Gray: "I am recently 3 days into being 20. And I'm an alchoholic. A very very high functioning alchoholic..."

    Get off it, now.

    Verisimilitude:" Get off it, now."
    Love it, it's just so hilarious.

    I fully understood the entire thing, was read within a matter of moments, I know exactly what he is saying and cba to even go into detail as I know others got it too and just a less than handful portion of Narcy and ????? replies is why brainy smart babies drink and wait for you to catch up. It is tiresome Genius is a lonely world too many ? not enough I comply next subject. People. I get it maybe because I am it. I'll wait till an afterlife to get someone who gets me until then reply I don't care, thinking to do to better a diabolical world ;)

    You're no genius, you're no bandwagonist either, so I commend you. But intelligent? No, depressive and interpersonal unfounded, absolutely.

    There is nothing here that proves that smarter people drink more. It shows that college graduates drink more. Education and intelligence are not the same. Although there might be a correlation, it is not reliable to consider that one stands for the other. I know plenty of low IQ people who managed to get through college. Maybe they are your drinkers?

  • Alastor Gray

    Haha, God I love morons. Wow... you do know that iq is premised in the therm that states there is a commonplace of intelligence. Basic level comprehension and problem solving, compliance to rules and social quo. Now forgive me if I'm being too brass, or don't if don't really care, but based of how you read the chart, you're obviously commonplace, average, or slightly below. Those are, however the only parameters your mind cares to expand, so your comment, based off simple analysis, is unfounded and by the strictest legal definition, retarded.

    I've got a Mensa membership card with my name on it to prove you wrong. My raw score put me above the 99th percentile, so I'm not concerned about your barely literate posting. Your poor grammar speaks for itself.

    Go Google "Dunning Kruger Effect." You suffer from it...and no, not the high end of it.

  • Charles Whelan

    The smarter you are, the more money you make. The more money you make, the more you are able to afford social events, dinning out, fund raisers, etc... hence, the smarter you are, the higher the likely hood of social drinking (or "responsible drinking") ..

    ..At least this is what I have seen.

  • Alastor Gray

    Simply put, anyone can be smart. All it takes is time, willingness, and books. But intelligence is genetic.

  • Alastor Gray

    Socially adept, yes however intelligence, and being smart are two different things . I don't intend on going into detail but I will present it simply. Smart is knowing things, intelligence is understanding things. Ex., a smart man might know how, about, where, when and for what stated reason, about someone, something, an event or period. An intelligent person will know why, have the cognitive ability to deduce, reason, comprehend, analyze or compile the necessary knowledge to think it over, and will not answer until he has attained the correct one. Whereas a smart man has a limitation and so therfore stops or convinces himself he does not, an intelligent person knows their limitations and tries to expand more vastly in the areas they are already adept, in an attempt to master them.

    So, according to this, Russians are the smartest people on the planet.

  • Alastor Gray

    I can't even with you...

  • GreyGanado

    No, this inforgraphic is only about the US and UK.

  • Alastor Gray

    Wow, sherlock, I've been looking for you. The game, is on.

  • The Teapot

    As someone who is 30 and has only been buzzed once in his life, I'm either a statistical outlier, or am the dumbest person in existence, and am going to die tomorrow from lack of alcohol.

  • Alastor Gray

    Actually, average as well as dumb, and intelligent people, can either drink or refrain. The graph is stating that intelligent people tend to pick up the habit more often then the average man, and tends to overdo it. BTW the general concensus of the health association is that people , to remain healthy should drunk at least 400ml of alcohol ranging from 35 to 80proof, a week. Be it a beer or two a night, or a glass of Redwing at dinner each night. Duh.

  • Alastor Gray

    Redwine. Sorry, I'm drunk.

  • thatwave

    I have a masters and I'm a member of a high IQ club. I've never been drunk in my life and I'm not interested in trying it.

  • Alastor Gray

    You have a master's and are a member of a high iq society? Lmao. All a master's proves is you spent time memorizing crap you didnt fully understand until you passed your tests. As far as the high iq society goes? I got accepted into mensa, and dukes tip talent when I was in middle, and elem. Only idiots brag about iq, becomes intelligent people understand it's based in theory, not fact. My current iq I'd 199 (+/-20)-to-214. And I took the 4 hour exam. So... where exactly did you take yours?
