I’m referencing to the overwhelming under appreciation of high IQ people. People care more about their feelings that genetics, naturally because they don’t like to be defined by their genetics. However, it’s been proven that genetics will determine how high of an education you’ll get and what you can and can’t understand. Why are we not implementing and normalizing IQ tests? Why is it so hard to get a proctored IQ test? Why are we worried about something like EQ, when IQ is required to advance civilization? Why aren’t we giving tax breaks to high IQ families as a reward? Those issues.
First of mate. Perception of IQ as a nature or nurture element has shown to be a highly reliable tool to predict people's IQ. The idea that genetics is key to IQ is, factually, a very strong sign of lower IQ. It is after all proof of a failure to understand what IQ is to begin with.Secondly I personally went from mid 130s to mid 150s in a matter of a week or two. The latter being verified, supervised and an average of the scores over multiple tests. I got help doing this as it was part of an application to a "High IQ Society". The most important lesson I learned after joining is that we have too many geniuses and not nearly enough ingenuity. I am far more impressed by creativity than I am by IQ. Creativity is a real superpower.IQ tests are one of the easiest tests you could possibly study for. Adding strong incentives to study for them would lead to near everyone scoring very well (until it is adjusted. After all average people from 70 years ago would be considered mentally challenged by today's standard). Which begs the rational question: Is there an inherent value to people being good at IQ tests that exceeds other intellectual pursuits? If we are to test for knowledge and ability, should it really be IQ?I am all for entertaining a meritocratic or even a geniocratic policy for politics. Don't assume that an IQ test is a good filter though, at best it is indicative. At worst, harmful.

It can be both. Personally, I find politics as mostly an emotional thing, but there are aspects that require intelligence to understand. Either way, intelligence is mostly genetic and of high importance.
But it's more a result of environmental factors. A person is a Republican or Democrat because that's the political affiliation of their family and/or friends, or that's the bias they were from in school. Sure, there are people who manage to break this cycle, but they are the minority.
