> If IQ is genetic then it would be fixed at birth.

Utter, utter bollocks. That's not how genetics works at all.

It's completely stupid since what is born, didn't start as a baby, and won't stop as one.

Read the brief article in Time. If success is measured by wealth and fame, then most Geniuses are miserable failures.

As for IQs, i have a high IQ because i am a great Test-Taker! i just LOVE to take tests. That doesn't really mean i am smarter or more talented or better than someone else.

Many of those whose genius takes the Artistic form may score less well on non-creative tests, and some also are likely to be Manic-Depressive (Touched With Fire by Kay Redfield Jamison).

As a Bi-Polar i know that being a Success when you're mentally ill is difficult. Dr. Jamison did it, but that doesn't mean everyone can. And she went through living hell to do it.

"Full many a flower is born to blush unseen and waste its fragrance on the desert air." Yes, to be born in the "wrong environment" is a factor. But some Geniuses born into high achieving families where they are pushed, and exhibited, and driven, and tormented to succeed end up as basket cases.

The question is: Is it really a waste? Pete Seeger commented on this fetish for being Nationally Known. He said if you are playing guitar for your friends and neighbors, or even just for yourself, you are a success.

i am not rich and famous, but i am happy because i am feeling much better now! (like John Astin in "Night Court")

No need for you to apologize, Mr. Gladwell! If your success came like so many folks from cheating and stealing and robbing others (as on Wall Street) THEN you would need to apologize!

You are a good man and i say you should enjoy yourself! But you are also an enlightened and sensitive person, so i understand your modesty.

P.S.: "But dramatically increasing the educational resources available to inner city kids makes a lot of sense." Indeed it does. Having been a social welfare worker in Oakland, California, i would add that making sure these kids have breakfast and lunch, decent clothes and shoes, a clean warm place to live, and are not afraid to come to school because of the crime factor would also help--a lot! To do that, we have to help their families in a thousand different ways.

This was a very helpful post. As a Murray-hating liberal I've always struggled with how to integrate some of the research findings in the IQ issue. Thank you.

Hi Malcolm,
I bought Outliers because I saw you talk about it on Rachel Maddow show on MSNBC in November. I am now in section 2 and just went to Amazon y'day or so and ordered me Tipping Point and Blink.
I shared the Roseto story with my community league Sunday night as a call to healthier community life.
Just thought you might like to know.

Mr. Gladwell,

Just want to inform you that my brother and I enjoy discussing your latest book, Outliers. We are impressed with your research and writing style (intelligent, yet easy to read). It's obvious that you are an Outlier yourself.

Enjoy your work! It's glorious!

Coming to Texas in '09? It would be nice to meet you.

Bio

  • I'm a writer for the New Yorker magazine, and the author of four books, "The Tipping Point: How Little Things Make a Big Difference", "Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking" and "Outliers: The Story of Success." My latest book, "What the Dog Saw" is a compilation of stories published in The New Yorker. I was born in England, and raised in southwestern Ontario in Canada. Now I live in New York City.

    My great claim to fame is that I'm from the town where they invented the BlackBerry. My family also believes (with some justification) that we are distantly related to Colin Powell. I invite you to look closely at the photograph above and draw your own conclusions.
