IQ is ultra meaningful – we have illustrated time and again that a society’s (country’s) average IQ is seven times more important than your own IQ in determining your standard of living. Individual IQ isn’t that important (at least within an sd of the mean) yet average IQs are critically important. In other words, better off a fool in Luxembourg than a genius in Lebanon.
