    Description

    Society, by statistical necessity, needs to focus on the majority. It needs to be built and designed for "the average". Society, by moral necessity, also needs to focus on the disadvantaged and disabled, helping those who cannot help themselves. But while the majority of society's resources, attention, and infrastructure is dedicated to average or below-average people, little-to-none of it is dedicated to the abnormally intelligent. And while having a high IQ is an overall net benefit in life, being a statistical intellectual freak is not without its drawbacks. Welcome to The Curse of the High IQ.

    Whether you fall asleep during class, constantly ram heads with your boss, can't understand why people watch the Oscars, are an alcoholic, or are accused of having ADD, having a high IQ can be a maddening experience. What you see as the obvious solution is what the "normies" will fight against tooth and nail. Those Ds you keep getting in English? Your superior mind being held hostage by the boring and inferior mind of your teacher. And you'd like to start a family? Good luck finding an intellectual equal for a spouse. And so while the world obsesses on their own problems, no one is paying attention to the problems of the abnormally intelligent. However, that all changes now with Curse of the High IQ.

    Curse of the High IQ is the first book specifically written for abnormally intelligent people. It identifies and addresses a litany of problems intelligent people face, analyzes them and provides solutions. But more importantly it aims to bring sanity to those who struggle with abnormal intelligence, especially those who are unaware they have it. So if you're constantly at odds with society, are suffering from depression or ennui, can't find any reason or agency in life, or just plain can't find any friends, consider purchasing this book.

    Few solutions. Many complaints

    A lot of this book is spent in the author distancing himself from the rest of society by placing all of his personal value in peoples intelligence and what they get on an IQ test. He is very miserable and tries to project that into everyone else with high intelligence but offers up very few solutions and paints a very dark dry image of reality. He has an extremely fixed mindset and it is this, not his IQ that has caused his world to be so dark. This is coming from a guy that scored 154 on my IQ test. This book does not reflect an optimal or even effective view of reality and is little more than a redundant advertisement for alcoholism.

    covert malignant narcissism

    I never write reviews, but I really feel like I have to today. I made myself listen to this entire piece of garbage, and honestly I question my own sanity for doing so. The author is angry, and lives in a constant state of victimhood. I feel sorry for those close to him because I can only assume that he is judging them with every word they say.

    Being intelligent does not mean that you have to be condescending, rude, elitist, or a pure victim of society.

    I test at 137, I live an overall happy life and, gasp, I like "swingy stick" aka hockey.

    Please don't get this book, unless you're just looking for a reason to be angry.

    Great, Real Advice, Holds No Punches

    This is not a book for the faint of heart, Aaron tells it like it is. If you are highly intelligent and frustrated with life, you will find this book eye-opening. Personality tests, self-help books, spiritual practices are ways to cope with not fitting in, and ways to adapt better to a world where you do not and will not ever fit in. However, reading this book will help you realize exactly WHY you don't and will never fit in and how to make practical improvements...and hopefully stop beating yourself up.

    Good book. Disagreed with one of the conclusions.

    The narrator was great, and a joy to listen to.

    This book condenses a lot of information, and helped me gain some perspective. Even though I disagreed one of the arguments, I still recommend it, and found it informative.

    (Spoiler Warning.)

    I disagreed with one of the conclusions. What I got was basically: Use Welfare if you feel like it, as you are taking from those that take from you. I understand the sentiment, but that's not anywhere near true. When one uses Welfare, they are stealing from those that have yet to be born, as most countries are in massive debt.

    Written by a pompous entitled narcissist.

    Couldnt get past the first chapter. This book seems to be written by someone who's only bragging rights are based on a relative 'high' score on an IQ test. The kind of test that's been proven to be very narrow in its testing and leaves out criteria for many other types of genius.

    I loved it!!!

    I understand now why I get so annoyed at family reunions everyone talks about football smh and complains about Trump😭. I usually keep to myself because I'm the only self employed person in my family. When they ask how my biz is going I can see they're not really happy for me when I tell them my biz is growing and everything is great

    if you're offended by this book, it wasn't for you

    listening to this book was like having theatre seats to my own mind mixed with straight forward ideas on how to overcome the challenges of dealing with people who, are genuinely nice, but still can't operate on a higher level. It also helps me appreciate my mental superiors and the patience they have shown.

    This book may help you to think about and plan for the future in an intelligent way, by understanding why you think the way you do and why others misunderstand you.

    Brutal, Offensive, In Your Face, and Gut Busting

    You're not allowed to call things what they are in today's politically correct world. If someone is dumb, you can't say they're dumb. If one set of beliefs and culture is better than another, you'll get in trouble for saying it. But Adam Clarey blasts those PC norms in the face with his truth shotgun, and my lord is it glorious and shocking.

    The insecure, PC, and looking to be offended man or woman will find a cruise ship load of objectionable material in Curse of the High IQ to rankle and set on fire their self-righteous, moral indignation for violating their unrational worldviews, but Mr. Clarey will still have their money.

    The secure, unoffendable person who barely gives a shit about societal opinions will find catharsis, laughter, and sober minded truths which reframe their world.

    As I sat in church and at the beach today, it dawned on me the level of my arrogance I must have to try to change lower IQ individuals who haven't asked for and don't want my help, and are perfectly content having an average or lower than average IQ. Some people don't want to change, and I don't need to waste my time with them anymore. Thank you for the wake-up call Adam.

    Notwithstanding how the author's nihilistic philosophy is inconsistent with his legacy focused desire to help people, this book will shift the needle for those steeped in the frustration of dealing with humans who lack common sense. Plus, if you would like a bit of life direction advise, it may behoove you to take a read as you may find options you hadn't previously realized.

    Not for the faint of heart or mind, Curse of the High IQ is a wake-up call, not necessarily for action, but for those who may not have realized their high intelligence level, mismatched to a society designed for the congenitally boring, could be the source of their frustration and open the prison doors a little to let in a little light of hope and joy.
