If the old SAT has as high a g loading as the WAIS, can't his SAT score be used as representative of his intelligence without the need to regress the mean? since he wasn't specifically selected for having a high SAT score like the ivy leaguers.

Saw a blog post with stats suggesting that higher IQ begins to reflect lower wealth. People going Kaczynski, I suppose (yuk yuk); heading for the basement; being a post doc forever.
