Aerospace engineers and brain surgeons are not necessarily brighter than the general population, a new study has found. Researchers examined data from 329 aerospace engineers and 72 neurosurgeons who completed 12 cognitive tasks. They found that only neurosurgeons showed a significant difference, with quicker problem-solving speed but slower memory recall compared with the general population.
Comment: Don’t know about you but I would be very happy with the cognitive ability of any of these people, whichever skill they have chosen. I’m glad they are alive, well and working. There are more than enough dim people out there.
