High IQ? You May Be At Risk for Mental and Physical Illnesses.

A journal article in the journal Intelligence is interesting. The study looked at members of Mensa, the organization for people with a high IQ, and then examined how many people had different illnesses. Turns out, along with physical illnesses, like autoimmune disorders, people in Mensa were more likely to have a mental illness, as well.

I have heard the phrase ‘there’s a fine line between genius and insanity’ for a very long time but never believed it. Looks like I may have to re-examine my views.
