In life we make many important decisions, but have you ever wondered if these important choices also reflect your IQ Score? does the choice of having a smoke effect your IQ Score or getting married?. Well to find out we completed an analysis of all IQ scores taken at the IQ Catch site to determine if there is a correlation. The results below have been averaged out and determined with a minimum sample size.

Six life choices have been shown and the average IQ scores from each. From the data there is not a lot surprises, as a general rule the smarter the individual the higher the likelihood they will enjoy academia activities and strive for a higher education and hence a higher job status in the professional fields of work. Success at work also makes them more desirable for marriage, which also explains why so many high IQ individuals are married.

The less obvious traits such as smoking, drinking and even owning a pet is more curious. One could say there are two potential reasons why high IQ scoring individuals don't smoke, for one, they are aware of the undesirable health effects of smoking or they enjoy a higher status in life and not so stress to make ends meet. Surprising results for alcohol, may be one of those life luxuries that high IQ individuals also like to enjoy, such as having a nice wine after work or the occasional get together in a nice restaurant, it may also be tired back with potential income and how often you could afford to have a drink. Pet ownership results may also be linked with the marriage results, maybe the individual is lonely and desires that companionship or maybe the professional individual is at call at certain hours and cannot have the time to look after a pet.
