Did Project Talent specify what tests they used to get those IQ scores? I find it very hard to accept that Zoology/Philosophy or a foreign language is just 1 IQ point below math majors. In fact, the math major scores are quite low.

My personal observation of the university I went to (a public elite university) suggests that people in the pure sciences (math, physics, chemistry) are at the top. Followed by engineering and then by business, finance, economics.

All humanities majors like philosophy, history, women's studies, journalism, english majors, etc are the bottom of the barrel. Most of these women (and yes, most are women) are barely above 100.
