Shame on you, Andrew & Owen!!!
That quote, "Just under 50% of all people have below average intelligence", just happened to be said/written by a woman-hating male-chauvinist.
Now, who do you think he was talking about?
A quick search revealed that there are 101 men to every 100 women on earth - ie. "Just under 50% of all people..." are women.
It's quite clever, but not really factual.
Shame on you all!!! If just under 50% have below-average intelligence and another corresponding just under 50% have an equivalent above-average intelligence with the remaining few having an average intelligence then all is in balance. :hammer: I need a donut!
Median and average are different. Median is the point at which half of your sample appears above and half below. With a sufficient outlier an average can appear next to the extreme with all other points on the opposite side.
