Can't help but like your answer, though probably for a slightly different reason. Personally I think the IQ test is a little too contrived for some intelligent people. After all it basically measures familiarity with a certain approach by certain types of people. Once you understand that, you can score quite highly with ease. And since the education system is as demanding through a certain 'rectal retentiveness' some people find the personal achievement and empowerment through faith a lot more satisfying, and no longer apply themselves as rigorously to the system. Another revolting aspect of education is the spirit of competition, which is not love.
