Why am I not as smart as my parents?

My dad i.q. is in the 0.01 percentile

And my mother is in the 0.3 percentile

But I only have a B.A. from a top school

I think I should at the very least have a masters from Harvard

I don't even have a PhD

    Educational attainment is not equal to intellect. You might be just as smart, but haven't furthered your education for a number of reasons. In addition, intelligence is not fully genetic. There are a lot of environmental factors that play a role in that as well.

    Don't take it personal. It is failed education system.. I am sure if you went to school the same time as your parents you would be right up there.
