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
You're assuming a few dollars provides an extra incentive people who score poorly but not people who score well. If effort is a part of the equation, why would you assume that people at the higher end can't give more effort?

Oh right, cause you're assuming the difference is all in the effort. Cause that gels with your "everybody the same" ideology. Even though I know damn well you've met plenty of stupid people who you wouldn't bet on to get a great score.
