it doesn't account for nontraditional thinkers like me for example.

IQ isn't perfect but it's hard to ignore how well it matches up with academic and professional success.

For example majors that people consider difficult have higher IQ graduates




High IQ people also make more money

"Jack Good [a colleague of Alan] said that Turing was a deep thinker  rather than a fast thinker. His IQ was therefore not especially high.  That description does I think apply very well to Turing."

I also think that you can be high IQ but lack the ability to solve certain problems, because of bias or lack of creativity. Some forms of genius are difficult to measure. IQ is a measure of the basic building blocks of intelligence.

It is obvious that the highest levels of genius cannot be feasibly measured. I'm talking about things like creative genius, the ability to understand bias and come up with novel ideas. One day, when there is human level or above AI, it will be feasible to measure some of the highest forms of human genius.
