Equating Intelligence with a Degree is an indication of Inferior Intellect

beautiful sounding words are not true...
Wise men are not scholars,
and scholars are not wise."

A degree is worthless like tits on a boar hog. OJT is where I achieved brilliance.

Saying “Person X has a degree, therefore they have intelligence” is foolish

Saying “Person Y doesn’t have a degree, therefore they have lower intelligence” is obsurde

Saying “The average person with a degree likely has higher intelligence than the average person without a degree” is not

What about person Z, you need both the X and Y axis to solve Z.

Depends on the level of regression you’re using. I prefer using evolution regression as it doesn’t require a z axis, providing greater flexibility. If I were using a linear regression I would get the optimal solution on first execution, but would need to account for the z axis.

OMG, what an idiot that I have developed into and now I have to put on my thinking cap like Tom Teriffic and blow steam.

Another large report hit the higher education marketplace recently showing, yet again, the value in getting a college education. Although it was billed as a deeper look at the risks of going to college, and it is, in the report’s lead-in, Doug Webber, the report’s author, was clear.

He literally wrote, “Let me be clear, the financial returns to graduating from a four-year college far outweigh any costs for the average student. Given the choice, I would much rather be a 22-year-old college graduate with $30,000 in debt … than an 18-year-old who decides not to enroll in college at all. The direct financial rewards of a degree are enormous, and don’t even begin to capture the many other dimensions that attending college can positively impact one’s life.”

In being true to the core of the research, it was possible, for example, to cite this click-worthy, viral-bait line from the report, “ … a college graduate is 177 times more likely than a high school graduate to earn $4 million or more throughout their lifetime.” Or this one, “ The typical college graduate will earn roughly $900,000 more than the typical high school graduate over their working life.”
