From Neuroskeptic: The idea that two people who have an IQ difference of more than 30 points cannot communicate with one another is not based on any evidence or science. While it is possible that two people may struggle to communicate due to differences in their mental capacities, the notion that this always happens once a specific difference in IQ points is reached is highly unlikely.
