That'll teach me to stereotype

RE: Actor/martial artist Dolf Lundgren:

"He also has a master's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Sydney and a genius-level IQ of 160."

Doh!

And makes a LOT more money as an actor.

Stereotype, it's a funny word.
That's funny.

I've found that when I encounter a giant man with insane burly-scary stats, I'm terribly confused when he is NOT smarter than me.

Also, I expect him to be able to cook, sew, be highly competent within a broad skill-set, and to be able to make good conversation under any circumstances.

I suspect that the SCA has simply ruined me for appreciating the "big dumb dude" species and I'm in for lots of disappointment. Or... maybe not so much.

Sadly, if you impart that information to your students, I venture to say that only a few would be in any way impressed.

But it is cool that he is that smart!

He would seem to be unstoppable. Brains and brawn. When asked about working with Dolph in "Universal Soldier," Jean Claude said that every engagement was like throwing himself at a brick wall -- he would hurt for it, not the wall.

I do so love when someone blows the sterotype people have of him/her.

I would not have expected that. I hire a lot of engineers and none are like that.

Which in the long run may be better for your ability to concentrate at work?
