I am going to draw an extremely long bow with a nice topping of anectodal evidence for a theory.

Most people I know who are anons were the "smart but fucked around in high school + spent too much time on the internet" types. The kind of people who could get like a 75% on a test without too much effort but really couldnt be fucked doing better because the content wasnt that engaging. Most of high school is just memorizing shit with the exception of the higher level math courses. Math gives you a few tools to remember and tells you to figure it out as opposed to being told to remember the whole thing and regurgitate it when needed. For people inclined towards critical thinking/problem solving most of high school doesnt scratch that itch. They know they could do well but they never really applied themselves because they didnt care and didnt have to. Nothing really kicked their ass.

Enter Engineering (whatever kind) - Anon needs to find something to do with their life. Having been memed on 4chan that engineering makes bank etc... and the fact that it has a low entry score + tough reputation they assume its for them and take a punt. The first year courses hit and they realise that they actually have to work, but its a different kind of work that is activating their brain in ways not experienced before. They dont have to remember a lot, just understand the key fundamentals and use them appropriately. This style of thinking which was not rewarded in high school is now getting the good grades, and filtering out the memorizers.

4chan is genuinely entertaining, but has a ton of bullshit to filter people out. It requires critical thinking to really appreciate it, which naturally biases towards nerdy engineers who think that way. They just happened to find 4chan growing up and stuck with it.
