Really, that’s the really real, actual title.
“Jews in America and Britain have an overall IQ mean somewhere between a half and a full standard deviation above the mean, with the source of the difference concentrated in the verbal component.” Murray again makes the argument of an unmistakable “Jewish Genius,” in Commentary, but now with an explanation:”
It’s mostly verbal. On spatial, they can actually score below average.
The most well-known Jews and IQ:
Ashkenazi literacy, economic specialization, and closure to inward gene flow led to a social environment in which there was high fitness payoff to intelligence, specifically verbal and mathematical intelligence but not spatial ability.
Greatest factor to least.
Mathematical, not so much. Financial? Yes.
Only Jews could charge interest (usury), an overt selection pressure.
Detailed demographic data about early medieval Ashkenazim are lacking,
but we can infer plausible parameters from the scarce information that we do have. First, their jobs were cognitively demanding since they were essentially restricted to entrepreneurial and managerial roles as financiers, estate managers, tax farmers, and merchants.
People sought out Jews knowing they trained for these skills.
These are jobs that people with an IQ below 100 essentially cannot do. Even low-level clerical jobs require something like an IQ of 90 (Gottfredson, 2003).
What is everyone in our society with below average IQ going to do in future to support themselves?
Not a study but interesting
Jewish intelligence is also unique in its loading on verbal IQ versus performance IQ.
Verbal is easily boosted by having educated and married parents, check with Stefan.
As in, we could easily replicate most of that in one generation with the will. Gut the schools of their rotten staff, raise standards from the start (care less about testing, it’s box-checking) and encourage parents to breed 24+, when divorce risk drops.
Though Jews have an average intelligence of 115, they have verbal skills closer to an average 125.6, with a more normal performance IQ closer to 100. This is highly unusual as most races usually have about equal verbal and performance IQs. This fact seems to indicate that the “Jews are a self-selected minority group, and their high intelligence is the result of self selection, not natural selection,” according to Howard Metzenberg.
Modern IQ weightings to bias the verbal section are caused by Jewish psychometricians being racist. No other group benefits from this. Bear in mind, Jung called Freud’s work “Jewish psychology” in the way it tried to universalize his own traits, to the detriment of everyone who wasn’t like him (a systemic bias). Freud wasn’t being scientific about the differences in a field devoted to them!
In summary then, eugenics is and has been a very useful tool for improving human intelligence, resulting in the Jewish race that is the most successful people on a host of social indicators like income, wealth, political power, etc., according to Jewish scholars.
There is also no indication that this success and high intelligence has anything to do with Jewish culture because there is no monolithic Jewish culture.
Jews as a race span a great deal of different cultures and life histories, and they have found themselves in varying ecological niches and cultures. From the Marxist secularist to the religiously orthodox, as a people they have on average an extremely high IQ. No one has been able to duplicate a “culture” that can boost IQ by a standard deviation generation after generation. Intelligence is in the genes. (Matt Nuenke–6/2005)
Really? It seems like it was in the social connections to me. The business networks predate Universities.
If they were genuinely superior, they wouldn’t have a need for those networks or secrecy from the gentile.
For the same reason you needn’t hide an equation from someone who can’t do maths.
However, whites have superior technical intelligence so they have to cheat us, to win.
Most of the Silicon Valley Jews were solid middle-class, look at the schools they went to. Without that edge, they’d be a poet working at Starbucks. They owe everything to their parents.
The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC) is a measure of IQ
comprising five verbal tests and five performance tests which are combined
to give a total IQ score (see Wechsler et al., 1992).
The WISC sucks, it’s biased to Jewish children vs. everyone else. 50% is far too heavy a weighting, 20% would be pushing it, 10-15% acceptable for any one metric with high environmental variability.
Children born to cohabiting parents exhibit a deficit in cognitive development compared with children born to married parents. This deficit is present in
both cognitive tests taken as part of the ALSPAC survey and national
achievement tests taken in school. The gap is larger in terms of national
achievement test scores, and also appears to increase as children get older
Single fathers are also bad, as intentional single mothers.
However, these gaps in cognitive development between children born to
married and cohabiting couples, particularly at younger ages, can largely be
explained by the mother’s fixed demographic characteristics, the
circumstances in which she grew up and by both parents’ highest educational qualifications. As these characteristics were, on the whole, determined long
before marriage decisions were taken, these results provide strong
suggestive evidence that the difference in cognitive development between
children born into different family forms can largely be accounted for by the
selection of different types of parents into marriage.
K-select marriage is superior for child IQ.
It is well known that children born to married parents tend to achieve better
cognitive and social outcomes, on average, than children born into other
family forms, including cohabiting unions. The existence of such gaps is
potentially important, given the long-term consequences of childhood
cognitive and non-cognitive skills and behaviours for education, labour
market and other outcomes in adulthood.
Your kids have every right to hate you, if you did actually ruin their life.
Gay marriage only passed because this data was so undeniably strong and severe in difference.
In both cases, however, it must be recognised that marital status may not be
the cause of these differences. Cohabiting couples may differ from married
couples in many ways other than their formal marital status, such as their
education or the love and commitment in their relationship.
Nature has a way. Two parents are required for baby-making for a reason.
It takes up all their time together and the unique blend of masculine and feminine energies to rear effectively.
As such, our view is that the gap in socio-emotional development between children born to cohabiting and married parents is largely accounted for by ‘selection’, thus leaving little room for marriage to be
having a strong positive effect on children’s socio-emotional development.
I can’t see you over that mighty hedge but I see your point.
Being educated is more important full-stop than being married. Suddenly Millennial priorities make a lot more sense, eh?
Table 6.2 antisocial behaviours. For the “IQ isn’t everything” people.
After age 10, they are not “happier” by that metric.
