Suicide and low IQ

http://anepigone.blogspot.co.uk/2008/01/suicide-and-iq-does-it-take-smarts-to.html

Bet you won’t hear the manosphere explain one of its pet victimhoods.

You can’t make a silk’s purse out of a sow’s ear.

The findings of a 2005 study out of Sweden contradict Lisa’s assertion:

In one of the largest studies on suicide ever conducted, researchers found that men with especially low scores on intelligence tests are two to three times more likely than others to kill themselves.

Duh?
Average IQ men aren’t overwhelmed.
Look at EI/EQ too. The emotionally disturbed ones suck on that but denies its existence.
As you’d expect.
The study was carried out in Sweden, which, along with other Scandinavian countries, has one of the highest suicide rates in the world.
good design
Epidemiologist Finn Rasmussen at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm and two colleagues monitored nearly 1 million Swedish men, measuring their IQ when they entered national service at 18 and following them until age 44.
They should also do a study of bachelors. (see end)
In that time, 2,811 men committed suicide, with the highest rate found among those who scored lowest on the logical component of the IQ test.
Suicidal people make bad decisions, really.
Men academically in over their heads–those with low IQs who had received at least some higher education–were the most likely to commit suicide.
The “women shouldn’t be allowed to attend Uni, even if they qualify” crew literally want to increase male suicides. Most of you aren’t smart enough to go! Same goes for women! We need less people attending overall!
End
Unemployed and divorced men had a consistently higher RR in each year analyzed.
A protective effect of marriage has been observed in a number of previous studies and this article updates figures up to 2005. The article shows that despite changes in marriage  patterns over the last 25 years, those who are married still have the lowest risk of suicide, and there has generally been no obvious decline in the difference in suicide rates between those who are married and those who are not.
Reminds me of the quote “A bachelor’s life is a fine breakfast, a flat lunch, and a miserable dinner.”

1. Be civil. 2. Be logical or fair. 3. Do not bore me.
