    50% of people are going to be dumber than average because in normal distributions the mean is the median. The “general population” is not smart by any definition.

    What if “smart” begins at the 35th percentile, rather than the 50th? What if “gifted” is anything above the 50th percentile?

      I didn’t mean that the 50th is where “smart” begins, just that 50% are going to be below average in intelligence.
