I saw this mentioned again here
and already knowing but yes, it’s true.
Lower class people are marrying less.
They get divorced more when they do get married.
Uneducated people aren’t as happy in marriage.
I don’t think it’s fair to call these r-types because you can find them among the middle class hedonists too.
‘Educated’ people, let’s say middle class, haven’t been affected by recent changes in the MMP.
Their divorce rate is still low and they marry later. As previously mentioned, female education is the best predictor of low divorce risk. Where is your phony appeal to Bible now?
If you can’t afford to keep a wife, as it was called, you should never marry. It is heavily financial, a monetary yoke. Do you want masculine gender roles or not?
The biggest difference here is obviously as a proxy for IQ. College entrance has an IQ requirement.
- A growing body of research suggests general cognitive ability may be the best predictor of job performance.
- Social skills, drive, and personality traits such as conscientiousness matter, too.
- Companies currently place a much greater emphasis on personality traits than on IQ.
- It could be wise for companies to start measuring job candidates’ intelligence and personality traits, to get a more holistic picture of their potential.
Oh look, everything I’ve been saying.
We need more research including the HBD crowd.
