Not quite. An average is not a half/half split. For instance you could get 10 geniuses pulling the average intelligence of a group of 100 up and vice versa.

He was using the median.

He was using mean, but the central limit theorem applies to the human population, thus mean and median actually have the same value. Most people here just don't know that, it's not like we can expect them to just know that stuff.

yes, I Statistics.

False average can be mean, median or mode. This post would refer to the median in which he would be correct whereas you have incorrectly assumed it meant mean.

Unless you included bias in the sampling method in which the geniuses would be overrepresented for the populatin, then there shouldn't be any skew towards smarter or dumber ends

if you go by iq, half/half would be pretty accurate
