The study had looked at brain scans and showed how they changed before, during, and after some sort of rejection. But the best part, I thought, was when the study found that when someone is rejected, their IQ can temporarily drop up to 25% as a result of the rejection. 25%!!!!

And I gotta agree with that finding just based on some of the posting that occurs here in the forums after someone's photo has been rejected!!! I think some of those people might be suffering the effects of the 25% drop in IQ when they start typing!
So if someone has of IQ of 100, when they find the rejection email it drops to 75. That makes sense.
