Better is a description of actions.
We were talking about psychological problems the scientific community may have in making logical decisions.
This does not necessarily have anything to do with how intelligent a person.
Does the typical scientist have tendencies to follow the group, or are they influenced by greed, ego, anger hate, etc. These emotions will cause a persons logical abilities to diminish.
Habits indicate how we act. IQ tests do not.
I do not intend to smear their reputations.
I just want to get a realistic idea of why they come to incorrect conclusions sometimes.
