    But kids are overwhelmingly similar, not fish and elephants, and kids can overwhelmingly master reading writing and arithmetic.

    The judgement cast by education is not of the individual, but of the individual's learning. No, everyone is not a genius — by definition, geniuses are extreme outliers — but everyone has the ability to develop their cognitive abilities greatly in all areas. We only need to stop looking for validation, and instead develop a little humility and a growth mindset.

    This cartoon is for feel-good underachievers. Also, clearly, NOT everyone is a genius.

    Intelligence tests are actually an aggregate score. So you'd have a hundred different tests, add all the scores together, and that would be your score. They are pretty reliable, too.

    I will disagree with this photo because I’m paying 50,000 back in student loans and have spent 18 years of my life in the school system. It’s also irrelevant that my degree wasn’t required for my current career, I got good socialization for the price I paid.

    Compare fish with fish. Elephants with elephants. Humans with humans. Right? Or is this saying different humans are from different species? Maybe I’m over analyzing this..

    If the job is to climb trees then it's probably fair to test and see if they can climb trees.

    Boy, oh boy, there’s a lot of contempt in these comments. I see a swathe of people taking the cartoon far too literally and lashing out at those who dare to suggest that people who possess differing abilities should be respected for them. Clearly, not everyone is a “genius.” However, “genius” is not a particularly useful term as those who fit the label clearly don’t need to be told that they are geniuses, and anyone who goes around using it to describe themselves almost certainly isn’t one. If you look at people, however, you see that different people possess a variety of skills. Whilst a strong capability in maths or language might qualify someone as intelligent, it’s wrong to say that someone not particularly gifted in those areas but skilled in drawing, for example, is unintelligent. To do so simply displays a very narrow understanding of intelligence. Of course, some people are unfortunately less innately talented across the board (or perhaps they simply haven’t found what it is they’re good at). Anyway, it’s pretty sad how many people here have rushed in with a narrow-minded approach with a desire to do nothing but put down others.

    yes, but then that fish shouldn't try to make a living out of climbing trees.

    To say EVERYONE is a genius is incredibly stupid. Half the people are below average by definition.

    We do not judge fish by its ability to climb a tree, but then again we do insist that the fish is as good as the monkey at climbing trees and we absolutely must give a fish a spot in the tree climbing world. We do not care if the fish is frustrated and doesn't fit in, god damn it, for the sake of diversity the fish absolutely MUST not only be allowed to climb the tree, but pushed as much as possible to climb the tree. Even going so far as to prohibit some monkeys from climbing the tree to allow a fish a spot in the branches.

    I do believe everyone has the potential to excel at something and the public school system may hinder their development at some point with it's standardized system.

    This is what stupid people say to comfort themselves. You study like 14/15 subjects. If you are bad at them all, you are stupid.

    It’s a good thing our education system is limited to only humans then. But, I see the point.

    Our educational system, at least in the U.S., is broken in a number of ways. By making these "standardized tests" the Alpha And Omega of education, we now have a culture of teaching JUST to the test. Critical thinking? Nah. Be a good little robot. I get the need to track progress but turning a test designed to test SCHOOLS into a graduation or promotion requirement is unfair to the students & skews the test results.

    If the fish was smart, it would understand it is being judged by idiots and wouldn’t live its whole life thinking it was stupid. Maybe fish is indeed stupid.
