Taking IQ test to determine IB eligibility?
As I'm starting to pursue finance, I have to choose which industry to go into. While I'd love to go into IB, as you all know it is very competitive with rough working conditions. My thinking is that smarter individuals will be more efficient in their work, thus negating some of the stress of IB (by having more free time). While I realize IQ tests are known to be inaccurate, I would assume it is still a good indicator of a person's intelligence and thus their ability to get things done quickly. I'm not saying low iq individuals can't make it in banking, but I'm saying that those individuals would struggle with the hours much more once in banking compared to someone smarter. Would appreciate some opinions, and be corrected on my thinking if its wrong.
