      Not very smart. I've met math and physics PhDs who were borderline moronic.

      110 IQ perhaps. Its about being a good goy and the funny hireable guy. PhD is a job

      You know it's very obvious you are coping right?

    youd have to be pretty dumb to get a PhD in physics or math. engineering you can use easily.
    joking aside, it's all just about putting in work. being smart just reduces how much you have to work at it.

      Is that right? Do you have bosses and have to follow rules like in most other wage cages?

    good reflexive judgment, creative problem solving, acute memory & recall etc. are not very advantageous to researchers. people with those traits do better in the professional world as MD's, lawyers, pilots etc.

    if you want to be a researcher what you need is an above average level of intelligence overall with a very high pain tolerance and a dogged work ethic. an adeptness for navigating bureaucratic systems would be an X-factor to actually getting things done. but the truth is through your decade of schooling you will have the subject matter knowledge to bulldoze through any of your intellectual deficiencies.

    im not saying one is better than the other btw. pilots and doctors are notoriously annoying people riding obnoxious egos. lawyers are nearly universally regarded as scum. and the traits necessary to be good in business are a laundry list of anti social tendancies. researchers, I think by virtue of the fact that they are usually smart-but-not-brilliant people, have pretty good reputations. compare the ego of a pilot to that of a researcher, its not even close.

    then again you want the guy flying a plane full of people to exude confidence, even if that treads into arrogance.

    tl;dr shit works

    105 reasonably, but I have seen some 90 IQ sheboons too. If you're nonwhite nonmale the bar is extraordinarily low.

    I've seen morons getting PhD in physics. For some reason all of those morons are experimentalists aka glorified lab boys.
    Don't get me started on engineering, I don't see them as my equivalent at all.
    Maths idk I don't have friends with maths PhD.
    I'm a theoretical physics PhD

          Engineers make useful things that improve the lives of the people. Theoretical physicists are grimy neets that sit in the office all day playing with arcane equations and simulations eating up resources for 50 years, all in the hope that 1/10,000 physicists will be the next Einstein or Newton.

    To get a PhD in Math you have to be an erudite classics scholar. To get a PhD in Physics you need to be a talentless hack. To get a PhD in Engineering you need to have a knack for accidently working on a project that becomes high demand about a year or two into you working on it.

    Find some third-world poor country and you can 'earn' your PhD for a $50K and for that amount you will be a co-author of a few dozen papers.

    Not very smart tbh - there are still tons of mediocre schools in the US with mediocre professors that are happy to take on mediocre students as research slaves in exchange for the coveted PhD.
    The only caveat is that people can easily tell you're not smart enough to deserve your title.

    Probably like 125 minimum (for engineering I'm assuming you mean ME or EE). Physics in math is probably slightly higher like 130-145. A Ph.D is a lot more about perseverance and autistic obsession with your research than it is about raw processing power. I'm in math and from what I've read the average math prof is in the 135 range.

    Uni and a Phd is a prescriptive education so you need to be dumb enough to not make it on your own. Dumb enough to not realize this and then dumb enough to go trough all the academic formalities. Basically you need to thrive being dumb, thus not very smart.
