    I have no gripes with the original 3 Bs, but there seem to be a lot of composers whose names start with B. My 3 favorites:

    Bela Bartok: I have never heard anything of his I didn't like.

    Anton Bruckner: Looooong symphonies R us. Set the table for Mahler.

    Samuel Barber: Maybe the greatest USAian composer (damning with faint praise? Actually, quite a few really good Merican composers, Ives, Adams, Reich). I realize that Stravinsky was a US citizen, but I really still consider him Russian. I am in a minority, but I don't consider Gershwin a classical composer.

      Clearly practice will make any IQ test meaningless.

      How do they engineer the IQ tests? Slanted towards spatial concepts, logic or verbal? Couldn't one be a genius in one area but not the others?

        As posted on the "IQ" thread, one's IQ is a ONLY a measure of how one does on an IQ Test. People with little common sense or interpersonal skills (or even marketable skills) can do very well on IQ tests.

          ...or as in cman's case, very poorly.
