Of course! How could you doubt it?

You are talking about thumb drives, right?

No – I have tiny thumbs and I am brilliant; unless you are positing an inverse relationship.

Only if your brain is in your thumb.

@Jeruba lol, because that’s not a problem.

Measures of intelligence are barely accurate in the first place.
The old model for int- was, behavior. The wiser new model is based on ability to predict, no behavior is required (provided you can see how the brain is working.)
So no, definitely and absolutely (thank you, I rarely get to use this word)—no.

Who ever told you that?

Stop listening to them.

The answer is: absolutely not. It’s ridiculous.

@ucme Hey, I met my husband when i was hitchiking! How intelligent was that!

ucme's avatar

@janbb There are of course,as with all things,exceptions to the rule.Whether that is the fact in your case is not for me to speculate.

@Hydrogenbond well, that’s true. I’m guilty.
