Is it true that a brain of a person with a higher I.Q is bigger than normal?

I think it is because of the composition of the brain. The more knowledge your brain contains the size gets bigger. I'm thinking the main concept is like a balloon, when more air goes inside of it, it becomes bigger and vice versa. The fact that having a Higher I.Q makes you smarter and as a result more information is stored in your brain making it bigger than normal. Do you agree?

According to what I have read brain size is not the exact indicator of level of intelligence although it is one factor. I guess it all depends because intelligence is not only hereditary but it is also acquired. To know more about this issue you can check the link I have read below: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroscience_and_intelligence

IQ is not a measurement of how much knowledge you have, or perhaps your theory might hold water. IQ is instead a measurement of our ability to reason and understand knowledge. That is why it is called Intelligence Quotient and not knowledge quotient. Measurement of IQ is meant to have no bearing on what you know, but rather what you are capable of understanding.
