Interesting. And probably accurate...
There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Can someone tell me what the story is about?
I could easily believe that IQ is inversely proportional to the ability to breed. Because there seems to be a growing population of idiots these days.

I don't see why it should be a problem to the 90%. We have survived as a Society so far. Some of those 90% say that there will always be unemployment and that a figure as high as 10% should be considered acceptable and normal. Then you have those that argue that we are going to all become unemployed as Robotics take over and that the huge corporations that manufacture will need to pay all of us to relax on the beach under the shade of the coconut tree.
Oh and then there is the argument over whether IQ actually measures real intelligence or not. Just because you are smart in somethings, does not mean you are not in other things. For instance, re the parable of the Mexican Fisherman under the shade of the the tree having a siesta and the Harvard Business Grad that trys telling him to go get a fleet of fishing vessels, so he could have time to sit under a shady tree on the beach....., who was the smart one?

Peterson's analysis, such as it is, is more elitist philosophy than science . .
But these are good arguments to debate and think through .

It is also said that people at the other end of the spectrum have trouble integrating as well. For them it is like living in an asylum, so they go off into the woods and become hermits.

Pretty mystifying argument (?) by Peterson.
In fact, the percentage of people who are unable to be productive is closer to 20% (in the US at least), though many of them can be assisted to function quite well.
It is not just IQ - people can be disabled by physical disabilities (missing limbs, blindness), mental illness, disease, age and much else.
And it has been ever thus, nothing at all new about it.
Or more briefly, what Wheels said . .
