Don’t be so sure about that. 

Me and people like me have many options. It’s good to have options. I am an artist at heart. Yet I have an IQ over 140 and a doctorate. I knows  some brilliant people who have gone on to mainly do agriculture. 

Also, the analyses of personality/occupational types Leary did in the 50s shows people are drawn to certain societal roles based on personality, and I posit these wouldn’t change if say I did a genetic modification to make me not have high blood pressure. But who really knows yet what is connected to what gene-wise and epigentically.
