Doesn't it seem odd that when a scholar with an IQ of, say. 130 comes up with a mildly radical idea it seems to meet with a lot of resistance
Yet - when a scholar with an IQ of 180 comes up with a really wild radical idea, people seem to flock to it with enthusiasm.

It's not about IQ. It's about charisma.
Some people have an ability to attract and command the loyalty of others. Combine that with a high IQ and you get the adulation.
