does anyone know of any kind of framework to measure non-IQ type intelligence?
IQ measures intelligence potential, since measuring intelligence itself is impossible. I wouldn't bother with anything beyond IQ.
It can often lead to inaction and constant, unnecessary second guessing whereas an idiot might not be inhibited by this.
True. High IQ people outside of high IQ roles are slower and more confused.
The few of them who indulge some seemingly irrational passionate dreams, go on to do great things. The ones who don't are doing jobs that are beneath them because it seems rational to follow that course.
Some manage to find stability, and then do great things, even if barely acknowledge. A lot of it depends on their family of origin (F.O.O.)
Only because fools are too oblivious to notice. Fix the society, not a problem.
