I'm pretty sure there's a dedicated thread on this topic on 23andme. Strictly from memory, so I 'm not positive about this, it only accounts for a few percent of variation in terms of intelligence. (maybe 4 %?). I also think I remember that it only applies to non-verbal intelligence.

There's another snp that shows whether people learn from errors.

Anyway, even "bad" snps for these aren't going to be determinative about overall IQ levels.

anyway i'm AG (...)Thanks, this is very interesting. For rs363050 I'm AG too! So average, I think. But my non-verbal intelligence is high (much higher above average, like algebra), while languages are not my strongest point. Btw, being 'average' is the best what you can be. It means that you're not a mistake or a 'freak' of nature...
