Why do clever people do stupid things? Psychologists split on 'link' between IQ and lack of common sense

It's simple Really:"People Who Think Too Much Rarely Pay Attention To What's Going On Around Them".
The "nutty professor" stereotype has done a lot to cement the idea that highly intelligent types are not very good at the practicalities of day-to-day life. And while changing a plug or reading a map are not considered "rocket science" by most of the population, it might be rocket scientists who struggle most with them.  Yet the claim that a high IQ is conclusively linked to a lack of common sense is disputed, with some psychologists saying the trope is a convenient way for men - so often assumed to be the "geniuses" - to shirk many of the all-round duties which women are simply expected to handle.
