Just read some article about how intelligence and brain size correlates to height, but irl the most intelligent people I know have average height but above average cranial structure.

I would guess that its correlated with height because the third variable is healthy development, which is more likely to result in all of height, cranial development, and intelligence.
Most geniuses are probably above average height because tbh they are more likely to be Indo-European, Jewish, or East Asian men.

Craniofacial development correlates to oxygen intake making for better brain function, height correlates to IGF-1
which increases neuroplasticity

certainly not about height
the only thing height does is give more confidence

dont think height is related to it

but skull/brain size definitely is. they did multiple studies on it

i mean you're like 5'9" or 5'10" right? dont think its the relative brain size but the absolute brain size

aka a relative "big" cranium on a 5'9" body may still be smaller than a normal sized cranium on a 6'4" man

oh i see i'm Closer to 5'11. like 1m79-80.

i don't know if it's means anything but i have a head wideness of 59-60cm which is like 90 to 97 percentile for my height but yeah it's probably not that massive in absolute numbers

its about the neurocranium volume, not the splanchocranium

you can have a wide head with big splanchocranium and small neurocranium and be a brainlet while giving the illusion of a "big head"

Seems extreme intellect comes in pretty much all shapes and sizes.

Alan Turing was a slayer. Tesla, Bobby Fischer incel looking.

At top 1% IQ, there are less Chads in terms of percentage than at every other IQ percentile imo

just my theory, high IQ would be detrimental evolutionary to Chad as it would make him depressed and nihilistic which he doesn't need

Chad is made by nature to breed like a rabbit not to fall in love with a pigeon or play chess so it makes no sense to give him anything more than 130

People will say COPE but this is true. A lot of typical IQ prediction and correlation shit falls to absolutely shambles at the highest levels of IQ. Waaaaay more hyper-autists than Chads at the top

I was talking about his face. Looked like a hunky rugby player
Idk he looks off to me. Maybe it's the swollen looking skullcap compared to the smaller jaw

IQ is only correlated with height for obvious reasons (women selecting best genes in as many aspects as possible)

It's also only correlated with brain size beyond certain IQs

This is IQ though and not the complete package for intelligence.

good stuff, dopamine coming from validation is one of the best things a person can get.
stuff like games, social media and p0rn are the opposite.
