Higher education doesn’t necessarily mean lucrative profession and high IQ doesn’t necessarily mean huge success later in life. Andrew Halliburton is a living proof.
With a 145 IQ result, he could have had a brilliant future ahead of him. His teachers predicted great success for Andrew who showed stunning results in maths. He got into Dundee University in order to study IT when he was only 16 years old. However, he dropped out of the higher education system after only six months. His main reason behind this action was that he’d been studying stuff he already knew.
Instead of still pursuing a great career path, he ended up wiping tables at McDonald’s. And that’s what he has been doing for the past 4 years. Andrew, now 22 years old, is living with his younger girlfriend. His parents and his sister believe that Andrew has been pushed too hard and that this could be the reason for his fall.
