He graduated from the Wharton School. But only with a BS. Tillerson was educated as an engineer. Which one would win that IQ test?

You say only a BS, but he's proven to have a lot of it.

An average IQ is 100. Can he count that high? Or does he get distracted too quickly?

Yes, tied with 19 others as the 544th richest person in the world. And to think, he started with only a $million and his mother's real estate company.
To be fair, I think most people could not do what he has done, even with that start. I know I don't have the stomach for it.

No, the difference is Al Capone set up soup kitchens and took care of the poor.
