adrian carrion: She's fucking sexy.

maiL reltuB: Yes

THE THIN. G Fait: I am discouraged

James Whitman: So if you think you can educate children to become anything they want to be, you are a science denier.

HardikG121: Along with standard genetics I think sex linked inheritance plays a huge role. If you have a smart father it’s likely his daughters will end up being smart. Likewise an intelligent mother will pass it on to her sons.

La Gom: "What do you think" I thought this was a science channel.. there is the right understanding and the wrong understanding, what we "think" doesn't change what is true.

John Stiffler: Its funny even tho science says genes dictate intelligence she says at the end what she personally believes

Yasmine Vella: You're not just "born with intelligence." I think we are way over simplifying human intelligence. We just love to link behaviours to genes, probably to satisfy some social \political ideology's.

username342: No one wants to admit it , but the genetics thing is true more than anything.
I'm a prime example of genetics working "negative" towards me.

Michael Skinner: I think you're right

myroseaccount: So what is the point of education? Just test children at say 8 and educate those with an IQ over say 100. Everyone else can be taught how to clean floors and stack shelves.

We can ensure that the weak-minded and the stupid live in their ghettoes and ensure they cannot reproduce through appropriate Eugenic policies.

What else is Genetics going to tell us? Hopefully how to better discriminate and eliminate people who are inferior.

Happy days lie ahead.

hello future: Stupid is what stupid does

Nighn Karnaout: you think you could be stephen hawking with hard work ?

Arnab Roy Chowdhury: What invisible piece of shit are you holding in your hand @2:07?

Arthur Lee: then explain why my parents meet in medical school.... and I got expelled. Thats right, its not genes its work ethic, Im lazy and prefer causing problems rather than solving them... simple.

anormalchannel300: Blame your lazy ass

Doctor Acanthamoeba: To answer the question of the video, yes.

mike4ty4: The question is not whether or not genetics sets baselines, or sets limits, the question is whether or not most people actually reach their ultimate limit or not. Genes can only be blamed if you know you are operating at your ultimate limit. But are you? What's the evidence on that one?

Billy Manchisi: I am a high IQ friendless person who was failed in school. I can spell, read, do math. I sound like the most intelligent person in the world when asked to read aloud.

Billy Manchisi: The US president is the most powerful person in the world. I can read better than anybody. I have such a high IQ. No college or university will give me passing grades. I have high genetic intelligence. I can perform well in multiple jobs.
