People don't become rich just because they are smart, said Jay Zagorsky, author of the study and a research scientist at Ohio State University 's Center for Human Resource Research.It doesn't take a rocket scientist to make a lot of money, according to new research.
A nationwide study found that people of below average intelligence were, overall, just about as wealthy as those in similar circumstances but with higher scores on an IQ test.

Furthermore, a number of extremely intelligent people stated they had gotten themselves into financial difficulty.
