A genius: no sweat?

Miss Eagle couldn't resist doing the IQ test mentioned by Lazy Cow. Lazy Cow, Miss Eagle pipped you by One Point. The testers tell me that Miss Eagle's Intellectual Type is Insightful Linguist. This means she is highly intelligent and has the natural fluency of a writer and the visual and spatial strengths of an artist. Those skills contribute to Miss Eagle's creative and expressive mind. And, they say, that's just some of what the testers know about Miss Eagle from her test results. But, Miss Eagle would have to pay them to get the full report. Well, she won't be paying.

And so what if Miss Eagle is a bona fide genius on a bona fide IQ test. As Miss Eagle's mum used to say: If you're so smart why aren't you rich. Smart, in fact, only takes one so far. As science has found. There is no substitute for hard work.
