Don't have much basis to support this, but I bet diviation in our physical and mental capabilities are minute compared to the progress that can be achieved through repetition and practice. So I tend to agree with klick on this.
Not that there aren't any retards or geniuses out there, but for the most part we all have about the same potential.
Most people do have roughly the same ability. The IQ distribution is a normal one. And most people probably can't score a 170 on the LSAT, no matter how much they tried.
