    those biases are in favor of the kind of putzes the 'heritage foundation' likes.

    They are also absurdly inaccurate.

    I know a guy who was tested 5 times, because the first test was outside of the norms (I find it interesting that if your test results are what is expected they never look again, but if not, they have to double check.), and the results for all tests had a more than 40 point spread.  How the subject is feeling the day of the test affects the result.  How much sleep.  Cultural biases.  How the test is written, and what it emphasizes and de-emphasizes.

    Not to mention the "Sheldon Cooper" types who test well, and have strong narrow  knowledge, but could not survive without outside help.

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.

      I don't know who Sheldon Cooper is, but definitely get your point:
