    IQ is not the the most accurate measure of intelligence IMO. Nevertheless, this graph is unsurprising to me, and matches up quite well with the sense of intelligence I gather from people of various majors that I have met.

    Here's the source.

    One immediate red flag, which is kinda addressed in the post:
    The answer comes from the fact that the IQ score here is estimated from the students’ SAT score.

    Yes. An SAT test is not an IQ test, although I did well on both.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    Interesting. I think it should also be noted that the median IQ is 100. I believe the standard deviation is 10. People on the lower end of the spectrum are by no means unintelligent.

    Soooo many statistical issues with this. Is anyone surprised that people who do best on logic-based testing also tend to major in logic-based fields?

    On an honestly surprising note... Home Ec is a major somewhere?

    Haha, yes! My university called it Family and Consumer Sciences. I actually minored in it just because I liked the cooking classes.

    Oh well that's even worse then. I got a 1290 on the SAT (980 on the old test), and I am working on a PhD.
