Politicians, writers, scientists, brilliant minds, have all been here for thousands of year, so what make them so clever? We have succumbed to the notion that intelligence can be measured by “ book-knowledge” or the IQ test, however it typically separates the world of knowing into bits and pieces, facts, and isolated phenomena. Knowing facts, using logic and conscious reasoning represents part of intellect, a tiny aspect of real intelligence. But the question that this chapter raises is whether the “intelligence gene” is hereditable. A group of scientist claimed to the world that they have found the gene for intelligence, located on chromosome 6 and supported it by the study done on a group of high IQ children. However, the IQ test was founded biased towards the middle class children. Furthermore, in this chapter the author tries to explain that the intelligence genes are more expressive later in life as people start choosing their own environments. In the concluding paragraph, the quote “ genes may create an appetite, but not an aptitude,” really gave me a thought.  The heritability of the intelligence gene may be about genetics of nurture as much as genetics of nature because people gradually seek out and create their own environment.
