    Yes. That's how such "facts" are commonly used. It's not an epistemologically correct procedure, as Hume has shown, yet as humans we can't do much better yet, when it comes to anything that has to do with analyizing our own large-scale behavior.

    who says that such facts are commonly used like that? imo you are using statistics the wrong way if you make a statement that smart people have/get high education based purely on statistics about average. people dont commonly do that kind of stuff..

    correct way of interpreting that kind of statistics would be that smart people more often get higher education

    just admit your defeat!

    I'd suggest this is what personality typing does: it helps categorized types of people and their thought processes to better assess various groups' behavior. In this instance, you have I's: those who are generally going to be more energized by being by themselves, generally more probable in night-time situations, N's: those whose mind cannot sit still and focus, but rather stay awake by their wandering thoughts, and lastly a slightly heavier dose of T's, whom also tend to "think past their bedtime."

    Of course that's all speculation, but I'd wager a pattern could be found there. Putting all that together, INT's also have a stronger compilation of "higher IQ" persons, for whatever reason one wishes to argue. (Although I am an INT, I find no grounds for elitism anymore in my own intelligence, and value F-type logic as much as my own T--even if I cannot grasp it most of the time.)

    That's what I've been saying all along wasn't it obvious? Is there any other possible way to interpret those statistics? (Answer: no)
