DING DING DING DING! Fire the T-shirt cannons, cue the dancing girls and ponies, we have a winner!

Yes, I am David Hume, Scottish philosopher, economist, skeptic and historian, who was such an Anglophile I was said to have died confessing not my sins, but my Scotticisms.

Congratulations, Professor Pepperwinkle!

Yeah, I was beginning to think I’d picked someone too obscure. I originally had thought about James Hutton or Frances Hutcheson, but those really would have been unfair.

Previous IQs.

IQ1: Are you a medieval writer from Arab Spain, known in Christian Europe as Avicenna, the Latinized version of your Arabic name? - Ibn Sina, who wrote on medicine. I was incorrect, though, about him being a Spanish Arab; he was Persian (albeit with an Arabic name). I confused him with Ibn Rashid, or Averroes.

IQ2: Were you probably the most famous CEO of an auto company before Elon Musk? - Yes, Lee Iacocca.

IQ3: Are you a magical realist writer, and cousin to the illegally deposed President of your native country? - novelist Isabelle Allende, author of Eva Luna, and cousin to deposed Chilean president Salvador Allende.
