that would be lucem's point no?

you'd simply try harder on the test and therefore score better

and because you're the type of person that would do that, you're more likely to jump through arbitrary hoops and thus end up more successful

I don't know if this is true or not, but it's something to think about

I strongly suspect a percentage of high intelligence individuals simply refuse to do the dumb things that are being asked of them and thus get labeled as having "behavioral problems", it's a way society isolates dissent from an early age
Just another marketing ploy

Are beehives and ant colonies unnatural? Cause they cooperate on a level we could hardly dream of.
