In reality, intelligence is a complex and multifaceted trait that cannot be accurately measured or defined by a single profession, while some jobs might require specific skill sets or knowledge.
A user asked on a forum “Which profession hires the dumbest people?”
Here are some responses he got!
“We have no educational requirements at all. We have functionally illiterate people, and Health and Safety Briefs must be read to them.”
“I don’t want to attack the profession of driving trucks, but the company Swift hires whatever dumb person can hold a steering wheel, and even sometimes that can’t.”
COOKS IN NAVY
“When you enlist in the Navy, they test your aptitude and give you a list of jobs based on your results. If you score in the bottom 5th percentile, you have one job available to you, Cook.”
“For some reason, every single oil refinery has a couple of engineers and operators who don’t do anything, have been there forever, and have very strong views that are almost hilarious – both liberal and conservative wackos.”
AGENTS IN REAL ESTATE
“From my experience, real estate. They can be great at their job but I’ve met agents that make me wonder how they can function for the rest of their life.”
“I’m a waitress/bartender and it’s amazing the amount of stupid people they hire and then they leave a few weeks later because they can’t hack being busy.”
“The food service industry hires some of the most incompetent people. It’s a constant battle between lack of common sense and inability to perform the easiest tasks.”
COAL MINES AND THE FOREST INDUSTRY
“Coal Mines, around here at least, are the repository of people too dumb for oil and gas and too unreliable for the forest industry.”
“Oil sands. (outside of trade/professional jobs). Some of the absolute biggest morons in the world get paid astronomical amounts of money to lift heavy things and drive vehicles. And then when the economy crashes they blame the government because nobody wants to hire somebody with a drug habit.”
MIDDLE MANAGEMENT IN EVERY COMPANY
“These are people that typically have failed upwards. They are not decision-makers and they weren’t irreplaceable enough in their previous role. They have enough power to interfere with daily operations without the foresight to understand the impact of their power trip.”
“If you ask them specific questions about the product they’re trying to sell and specifics of the warranty, they often have no idea how to respond accurately and professionally.”
“They want people that don’t think, that way they can make them do things that aren’t entirely ethical. They want dumb people so that they will say exactly what the sales managers want them to tell the customers.”
“MLM higher-ups and recruiters are amazing scammers. Only the people at the bottom getting ripped off are dumb And selling for an MLM is not a job. It’s your new debt.”
SALES REP WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE
“Those who work as a Sales rep for every industry I’ve been a part of were terrible with computers.”
“I am a sales rep for a pretty complex industry. We just hired a lady with 20 years of sales experience who doesn’t know how to use her laptop. It’s a horrible nightmare.”
