Upside: This mitigates what I call the renaissance idiot problem. Low IQ characters have little to spend their IQ on so they tend to have spare points to make themselves well-rounded. High IQ characters have so many items on their menu that they're inevitably desperately short of points. IQ 8 characters have a desultory menu an can almost certainly afford to pick up something extra just for the lolz.

Issue: It makes IQ better, and IQ is already quite good. If there's an attribute that is suffering at the moment it's ST. You might consider making this IQ+2 attribute cost more.
