Why do people with high intelligence seem to through their life away?

Anonymous
This doesn’t apply to everyone obviously, but whenever I see high IQ people flunk out of school, get on drugs, etc I instantly get angry. It’s one of the very few things that actually angers me in this world. Such gifted high IQ levels, that I would only WISH to have, being thrown away. I wish we could extract intellect from others and add it on to people who actually need it. It’s sickening
