The words “idiot,” “imbecile,” and “moron” were once actually assigned to specific IQ ranges.
IDIOT – An idiot had an IQ under 20.
IMBECILE – An imbecile had an IQ between 21 and 50.
MORON – A moron tops the other two off with an IQ between 51 and 70.
Whew! I have taken an IQ test and thankfully, my results were around 140 or so. If anyone ever calls me an idiot, imbecile or moron, I totally don’t have to believe them. 😉
