Our expert says:
IQ can be such an artificial concept in real life, as your comments show. Highly intelligent women, by any criterion ( and some highly intelligent men ) tolerate or stay with or return to, abusive situations, so its clearly not about intelligence however measured. The problem is how to help someone change that self-imprisoning and self-defeating set of acceptances, assumptions, and behaviours learned in such settings, so that they can break free.
