What does it mean to be intelligent? Intelligence, scientifically, is a broad and deep comprehension of our surroundings in order to make sense of things and figure out what to do. This is often measured by IQ on a scale of 0-200.
The average IQ score ranges from 90-110, but what makes someone intelligent? This infographic explores the idea that high IQ scores can be passed from parent to child. It shows that biological family members typically have higher IQ correlations than adoptive ones.
The infographic also presents the argument that nature and nurture go hand-in-hand when it comes to developing a high IQ. Fifty percent of variance in educational achievement can be attributed to genetics and kids who are raised with the concept that intelligence is expandable are more likely to keep trying and succeed.
Conversely, it is shown that kids who grow up in chaotic homes can experience negative effects to their IQ scores.
