Education and Genius
The Genius and IQ thing would never die whether you believe it or not. As this present century is filled with a lot of scientific and technological advancement, so is the more desire to upgrade our brain to the human 2.0 version.
Needless to say, there are tons of argument from around the web as to whether the level of intelligence implies a chosen career. Does the degree you major in has a direct influence on your IQ?
If not a direct influence, could there be a correlation between being a genius and such degree as Robotics engineering? Are all geniuses necessarily partaking in most of the hardest course you can ever imagine?
These are the fundamental questions that I often hear people mention and of course, I am apt to almost always answer them with a resonating NO. At least, there is no causal factor or predetermined brain wiring that makes a genius choose a degree.
In fact, not all geniuses are in the most rigorous science field like Aerospace engineering or robotics and putatively, not all of them choose science as their area of specialization. There are music geniuses as much as there are social and philosophy geniuses.
