  1. No. The world wouldn't be a better place. If both good and evil people became smarter, then the proportion of good and evil would not change on earth. It's just possible that the confrontation would have moved to a new high-tech level.

    Genius and villainy are quite compatible, it has long been known. And history has proved it. And the number of good deeds depends not on the number of” convolutions”, but on those traits of a person's character that can generally be called HUMANITY. This is a substance that cannot be measured by any tests. Moral and spiritual qualities – kindness, generosity, honesty, decency, compassion, justice… “they're the ones that keep the world from being completely chaotic.

  2. A certain amount of evil on Earth exists due to the stupidity or lack of intelligence of the masses. Often things are done that do not benefit anyone. But what this proportion is is difficult to estimate without careful research. But high intelligence in itself does not mean kindness and humanism. So the world would probably be a better place. But it wouldn't be perfect.

  3. Yes, the world would definitely be a better place.

    After all, a smart person with high intelligence can not be bad, despite the comics, books and movies-smart people in reality are those who are not interested in violence. And if there are no stupid people around who interfere with development and show cruelty, then we wouldn't have to get rid of them.

    The opposite answers are utter nonsense, based on movie stereotypes. Where scripts aren't written by geniuses when it comes to scripts about geniuses and villains.

    Do you want the truth? Take Tesla, Aristotle, Krylov, Tolstoy, Davinci, Einstein, Hawking, Bohr, Bose, Ampere, Newton, Volt, and any other person known to the world with high intelligence – none of them were too bad, even considering that you have to live among stupid and evil people who do not understand anything in this life at all.

  4. the very concept of IQ is a fictional unit of intelligence for dividing people into smart and fools, some came up with it, others accepted it, but some of them forgot to clarify who. If Prof. not understanding the student doesn't mean that the student is a fool – they just solve the same problem differently.

  5. Difficult question.

    I think so, it would be better.

    Yes, I understand that a smart person and a kind person are not the same thing. But how many things do people do because of stupidity and ignorance: superstition, religious fanaticism, just a banal misunderstanding of the position of other people.

    For a stupid person, things that they don't understand can cause aggression, because they still won't understand even if they try to figure it out. And a smart person will figure it out – for him this is a natural process.

    A smart person builds better causal relationships, which means that they are more aware of the consequences of their actions.

    In addition, the standard of living would be higher, and this greatly affects the anger of people.

    Even in my own environment, I can say that smart people are somehow more able to negotiate, more adequate. An evil fool who doesn't understand what he's doing is a horror. An evil genius is probably more dangerous, but to be a genius, you need to be much smarter than others, and if everyone is the same, there will be no geniuses.

    In general, intelligence is what distinguishes us from animals, our main advantage in this world. We live longer and better than we would live without intelligence, and I don't think there is any limit beyond which intelligence stops improving people's lives and only harms them.

  6. Perhaps even worse, because there are many examples in history of people with high IQs bringing their deadly ideas to humanity.

    What could be more harmful than a person who has knowledge of the most complex sciences, but does not have a good heart? He will use all his knowledge for evil.

  7. The human brain is able to make any predictions based on the pattern of previous events. So I will try to give an answer, relying only on anticipation. IQ is a quantitative assessment of the level of intelligence, in other words, the coefficient of mental development. The minimum IQ level on the Eysenck test is 70 points, which according to statistics is achieved by residents of such states as Nigeria, Guinea, Zimbabwe, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Equatorial Guinea(I dare say that they all belong to the same continent – Africa(its Western part still prevails more than central and Eastern)). Where the level of economic development dynamics is relatively lower than in the countries of Europe, America and Asia. This is followed by an average IQ score that ranges from 100 to 120 points. Such results are achieved by residents of countries such as the USA, Russia, Great Britain, Sweden, Germany, Austria, China, Japan, and Korea… The situation of which is quite normal today. It has developed a 3-stage system of production (1-agriculture [pre-industrial society]; 2-industry [industrial society]; 3-intellectual and information sphere [post-industrial society].) People whose knowledge quotient is higher than 120 points are less common than the above-mentioned representatives of their countries. Among them are such famous people as�Stephen Hawking,�Bill Gates,�Terence Tao,�Christopher Hirata and so on. Who made a huge contribution to science, which accelerated the transition from an industrial society to a post-industrial one. And what this is fraught with is quite understandable and without unnecessary hackneyed phrases.�

    Yes, the world would definitely be a better place. The pace and dynamics of scientific growth would have increased enormously. Colonizing Mars and traveling through Space would seem like mundane things that are very easy to achieve with the right and rational approach. Robots would probably replace a good portion of “everything” around us. And let them. It was a narrow-minded and meager answer, but the boundaries of my consciousness do not allow more space for the will of thought.

  8. Now, if everyone was so smart, everyone knew higher mathematics, quantum physics, 100 or more languages, how would they define geniuses? Or maybe they would not have defined it, no one would have asked such a question.

    I think there would be more good and evil. We would have mastered other planets, automated all the work, and many other things that we never dreamed of. But even a weapon would be more terrible than nuclear weapons.

    Yes, criminals are usually smart. Well, if you killed someone drunk (they were drunk, someone remembered something bad, word for word, and one killed the other), then such a criminal can be stupid. But scammers come up with such schemes that no scientist will think of such a thing.

  9. This is impossible even in a fictional artificial world. This is a multi-parameter system and each parameter depends on many factors. Therefore, it is impossible to create even two identical clones. There will always be a normal distribution of parameters. Even the fact that one will be on the left and the other on the right will already affect. Therefore, the situation that everyone has a maximum IQ is equivalent to the fact that the whole world has the same thing at any point in space.

    In general, there is no point in this question.

  10. A maximum IQ doesn't guarantee anything. It can also be possessed by a serial killer planning his crimes. And a biologist who invents highly effective means of defeating the enemy. And a teacher who teaches students his subject with genuine passion. And a lot more. So, most likely, the world has not changed. Good and evil would take their usual positions.

  11. All the same. It can't be that everyone's level of development is the same, there were still those who would have been a little higher, they would have become the elite, and then everything is the same as it is now.
