Top-ranked IQ nations by continent

I decided to fool around with numbers again, see what turns up.

Source, first to pop up when I looked.

I stopped at a ranking of nineteen because I’m lazy.
Taking the scores as approximately writ….

it varies greatly, little self-report and few biased metrics so I believe it.

ASIATIC
Singapore 108
South Korea 106
Japan 105
Mongolia 101
China 100 This, I believe. Based on their actual performance, not transcript.
Israel (I checked) 95
Armenia 94
Kazakhstan 94
Vietnam 94
Malaysia 92
Brunei 91
Cambodia 91
Thailand 91
Kyrgyzstan 90
Turkey 90
Laos 89

108+106+105+101+100+95+94+94+94+92+91+91+91+90+90+89 / 16

1531 / 16 = 95.6875.

Okay, let’s look at the top 16 nations in Europe.

I am surprised.

I’m leaving these numbers up so I can come back to them but the averages by continent (and presumably, race) are not impressive.

It’s sort of shoots the Asian supremacy myth in the foot when the most basic descriptive data handling debunks it.
None of you bothered to do this?

Remember, these differences are genetic, you can see them on MRI.
