Half the people you know are below average

Intriguing sentence!

But I should add: if you (like me) are in the 10% of the people with more than 120 IQ, 90% of the people are “worse” than you… really? Could you visualize the faces of 10 friends and say 9 of them are “idiots”? Ok, now I see what you’re thinking: “but I only have clever friends, because I usually befriend with smart people”… really? How many of your friends come from clever social events, and how many you met in just normal places (like school, university, workplace)?

Anyway, why people love comparing himself among others?
