Not so dumb after all

Posted on | June 23, 2006 | No Comments

My colleague, EE Times News Editor Junko Yoshida, made my Friday by pointing out a piece in the May issue of the Atlantic Monthly.

Wrote she:
Apparently the only NFL player to score a perfect 50 on the Wonderlic test was punter and Harvard alumnus Pat McInally in 1975. The average score for NFL draftees over the past twenty years is a 19, which puts them a peg higher than aspiring drivers, deliverymen, and claims checkers. The smartest group, on average, is attorneys (29.67), followed by editors (28.84) and executives (28.70).

And the execs are the ones who thing we’re stupid.

Happy Friday indeed.
