From Wikipedia:

At the age of twelve years, Langan began weight training, and forcibly ended the abuse by throwing his stepfather out of the house when he was fourteen, and telling him never to return.

HOT DAMN.

I propose there are two types of intelligent people (by intelligent I mean an IQ of 125 and above). There is the first type that thirst for knowledge, they are book smart, somewhat (or more than somewhat) socially awkward, and, although intelligent, do not really possess street smarts or common sense. They tend to gravitate toward the math and science fields and obtain multiple levels of degrees that lead them to employment in fields where they can study the world in order to "figure it out". Then there is a the second type. They immediately "figure the world out" at a young age and because of this become rebellious, annoy their teachers who know they are really smart but refuse to do anything with the brains given to them, tend to shun higher education, don't care about having what society would consider a successful career, tend to be anti-social because they view most people as idiots and have no ambition to do much but buck the system and watch the world burn, shaking their head the whole time but knowing its probably for the best.

Get ready for an assload of anonymous faggots explaining to other anonymous faggots why they are the second kind

Guess I am the second kind. I have trouble socializing because most people just talk about unimportant crap I really, really don't give a fuck about. People on voat at least are not blind fools like the majority of humanity.

I break it down by "has hope for a good future vs. Has no hope"

Internal locus of control vs. External locus of control.

Sometimes the first type ends up as the second type over time....in my case it's been a gradual thing over my 50 years here

As much as I like the guy I feel compelled to point out 210 isn’t a real iq. That many standard deviations would make you smarter than the number of people that have ever existed in all of human history.

Even Newton is estimated to have an IQ of 180, I doubt this guy is higher than his. But a lot of liberal positions are extremely illogical and rely on emotions to get support.

Also intelligence is pretty impossible to quantify. But what I want to say, this is a reasonably intelligent person.

As I mentioned in the description:

While a huge part, it is not all there is about intelligence. It also explains why high-IQ people are right leaning, they spot the pattern in what is wrong and quickly find the inappropriate parts of society.

Are they actually? I was under the impression that intelligence affects comprehension but has absolutely no (or little) bearing on susceptibility to ideology or worldview. Are there data somewhere for this? It would be pretty enlightening

Regular modern IQ tests only go up to 160 and really aren't accurate beyond 155 (i.e. even people much smarter than 160 tend to get around 155 on normal tests). There are intelligence tests for above 160, which can be used to estimate IQ, but the are very inaccurate. Chris Langan took one of these and his IQ was estimated in the 195 to 210 range.

Assuming that a normal distribution continues to describe intelligence at the extreme high end (a somewhat dubious assumption), we should expect the smartest white person in the world to have an IQ around 190. So the test probably overestimates Langan's IQ, but given that he scores higher than anyone else does mean that he is the most probable guess as to who the smartest person in the world is.

It's not "real" insofar as no IQ text can achieve that value, it's an extrapolation based on the test. Sort of like estimating that if you fired an arrow almost twice as far as the demarcated 100 foot line, you can estimate the arrow landed at about 200 feet, but you don't know exactly and can't measure it for sure.

Exactly so it’s not real at all it’s a made up number based on a test someone wrote. All it proves is he’s smarter than the other people that took that test

I doubt he knows he has an open invitation and a censorship-free community dying to pick his brain on anything he'd be willing to talk about.

Edit: does anyone know how to reach him via email or anything?

I watched this last time someone posted about Langan and was a little surprised but not really. https://youtu.be/Q-HXSHXUtFw

Be wary of anyone holding "overpopulation" views. It is the one thing all factions of globalists agree is "an issue". They want us sick and dead. If they used a "200 IQ" guy to promote the idea, it's harder to get people to realize there's a shit ton of land everywhere that can be used to live on. Yes we can feed people. We just need more farmers and not punish the farmers we have with excessive taxes and rebalance the distribution systems so migrant workers and retail stores aren't receiving 80% of the profits from a farm. Then you'd see more farmers, food would still be cheap, but more localized and people could really populate the earth. Plus most of the population is Africa and aren't they supposed to be more starving than us?

Please correct me if CL doesn't promote the idea of overpopulation. I just saw this video and lost interest in him because of it.

it was interesting a few weeks ago when i realized the smartest man alive shares my views. like you said IQ is about pattern recognition. how others dont see these patterns is a real mystery.

I think more people inevitably see them than we give them credit. They are just taught to feel embarrassed and guilty about it.

Actually, doesn't make me think at all. The thing i have always come back to when trying to understand that liberal point of view is that they DO NOT operate on anything related to logic. To them, 1+1=puppies. THe lack the ability to reason. They lack the ability to understand things like consequences. They lack the ability to work on anything other than emotion and generally speaking, their emotions are significant amounts of guilt and significant amounts of sympathy and not much else. And, really, it doesn't take a genius to figure this out.

You're 100% correct. I was being a bit ironic with the "really makes you think" part.
