1 @nntaleb 2019-01-02 21:08:55 @econ_rob @NateSilver538 @mattyglesias Actually Nate Silver is being a bullshit vendor again, as per profession. He doesn't know my IQ and debunking his BS doesn't mean I think I am a supergenius. https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1080571665946419200 0.500

8 @nntaleb 2019-01-01 21:04:30 NEVER talk about correlation 1) if you are a psychologist [they are klueless] 2) when there is nonlinearity such as IQ and performance. You can have 80% correlation with "performance" when it is 0 for positive performance, & high for negative. Compare to "SAT" and see the BS. https://t.co/E7fQ9jL2iM https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1080208165256523776 0.500
9 @nntaleb 2019-01-01 17:50:09 @aaa21usa @JorgeSpichiger @rockwell_n2 If you are using IQ of 0 vs 130 you do better. This is BS reasoning. https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1080159255339192323 0.500

11 @nntaleb 2019-01-01 13:15:29 No, "IQ" tests aren't even close to what intelligence means, even excluding decision-making (wisdom). https://t.co/OKPeDAeP9O https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1080090133192429570 -0.500
12 @nntaleb 2018-12-31 18:53:26 I can understand someone saying "listen, I love strangers but I am more comfortable w/my nationality, shared values" (homophily) or "neighbors get along better than rommates" (fractal localism). But making "others" genetically "inferior" using IQ "science" is quite sinister. https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1079812795166851072 -0.500

14 @nntaleb 2018-12-31 13:44:00 F***king hypocrite; Molyneux @StefanMolyneux thinks he can manage to keep posting strings showing lower "IQ" for Africans + heritability of IQ, catering to a Nordist supremacist following... ...yet claim this is not racist so he doesn't get banned from social media.

15 @nntaleb 2018-12-31 13:30:07 An intelligent "current IQ" test is one that maximum number of successful pple (Gell-Mann, Feynman, Buffett, plumbers happy w/their lives, Musk, Umb. Eco) ace, & maximum number of unsucessful ones (bureaucrats, journalists, pple in jail) flunk, revised as environment changes. https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1079731428391292929 0.500
16 @nntaleb 2018-12-31 03:29:25 Can someone explain how the psycholophasters got the IQ of Goethe, Einstein? By retro-testing? And stats for IQ of math/physicists? Selfreporting bias? I don't know one mathematician who knows his/her IQ. Only IQ of physicist we know is Feynman's (126 as he fluncked Mensa). https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1079580255965364224 -0.500

18 @nntaleb 2018-12-30 18:53:51 32- WRAPPING UP - I said psychology was BS because something wrong between 50-100% of the time is the very definition of bul***st (a lie is wrong ~100%). - Selection of traits "tested" by IQ require predictability of future environment. - Will put everything in short article. https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1079450509201821697 -0.500
19 @nntaleb 2018-12-30 15:32:23 10- Year in Review One Tweetstorm countered close to a century of intelligence metrification ("IQ") by nerds, & thousands of psychologists (& eugenists) who use probabilistic equations without knowing what is behind... One single Tweetstorm. https://t.co/fX86oI0T4L https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1079399807494643712 0.500
20 @nntaleb 2018-12-30 15:24:24 I never made that point. Never linked "IQ" (which I didn't consider a "measure") to evolution. I blocked Razib Khan @razibkhan because he claimed there were "flaws" in our GMO risk arguments but could not produce any. https://t.co/vtKD8Q3GFd https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1079397800260063235 -0.500
21 @bramcohen 2018-12-29 23:39:15 @EricRWeinstein @nntaleb My understanding of current research is that almost everything good correlates a bit so it doesn't matter much which things you use. IQ is a sum of a bunch of tests and an okay predictor of performance but much better than the alternatives, which seem to have no predictive value. https://twitter.com/bramcohen/status/1079159944186744833 0.500
22 @nntaleb 2018-12-29 23:06:48 @The_Orgazoid_ @Shawn_Samuel21 @SteveTobak @EricRWeinstein Income is NOT predicted by IQ and if IQ predicta academic failure it is NOT predicted by academic performance. https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1079151781135990784 -0.500
23 @nntaleb 2018-12-29 22:48:12 @barf_captain @Lavana14185681 @cshalizi Then why do you need IQ if you have the SAT? https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1079147098820497408 -0.500
24 @nntaleb 2018-12-29 22:02:14 This is an example of what the brilliant Cosma @cshalizi intuited behing the failure of "g". And the SAT is DIRECTLY covered by IQ tests from overlap. A low IQ "correlates" with low SAT, but a low SAT doesn't "correlate" with low IQ. Now do that with other measures covered by IQ https://t.co/EtLlwEwhmo https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1079135531236290560 -0.500
25 @nntaleb 2018-12-29 21:49:18 @LeeCX65 @AdaBletchley @clairlemon It's not that IQ doesn't just capture intelligence, but that these metrics (behind the PCA) are pure statistical hogwash, largely becomes circular & overfit. And my point is that psychologists don't seem to get probability & don't know it. That is a more severe problem. https://twitter.com/nntaleb/status/1079132276896743424 -0.500
