Cognitive ability and fertility in Swedes

aka a select population of white people.

https://royalsocietypublishing.org/doi/abs/10.1098/rspb.2019.0359

We examine the relationship between cognitive ability and childbearing patterns in contemporary Sweden using administrative register data. The topic has a long history in the social sciences and has been the topic of a large number of studies, many reporting a negative gradient between intelligence and fertility. We link fertility histories to military conscription tests with intelligence scores for all Swedish men born 1951–1967. We find a positive relationship between intelligence scores and fertility, and this pattern is consistent across the cohorts we study. The relationship is most pronounced for the transition to a first child, and men with the lowest categories of IQ scores have the fewest children. Using fixed effects models, we additionally control for all factors that are shared by siblings, and after such adjustments, we find a stronger positive relationship between IQ and fertility.

Furthermore, we find a positive gradient within groups at different levels of education. Compositional differences of this kind are therefore not responsible for the positive gradient we observe—instead, the relationship is even stronger after controlling for both educational careers and parental background factors. In our models where we compare brothers to one another, we find that, relative to men with IQ 100, the group with the lowest category of cognitive ability have 0.56 fewer children, and men with the highest category have 0.09 more children.

There are a lot of new readers who don’t seem to know how I roll.

  1. I am right.
  2. When in doubt, see rule one.

My assumptions have statistical backing. Read up or FO.

Oh, look, it’s the military! [coughs in K-type]

My brain doesn’t instantly become thick because you dislike an opinion it produces.

If you’re not smart enough to know what’s science, what’s speculative and what’s satire, go elsewhere.

I’ve spent years proving myself on here, with a variety of good predictions (the refugee crisis, African demographics, Brexit, Trump etc). Your incredulity is not required.

Population data

“You’re not being replaced!”

https://countrydigest.org/uk-population/

The rate of population growth in the UK has increased in recent years. In 2015 the population increased by 513,000 people (0.8%).

Population increases come from immigration and natural growth (the number of births minus the number of deaths. The total number of immigrants coming into the UK is offset by the number of people who emigrate from the United Kingdom each year (see British people abroad below) to reach a final population growth total for the year.

No, total immigration doesn’t minus, net is minus. Why not report total?

https://www.migrationwatchuk.org/statistics-net-migration-statistics

2018: net immigration 258

TOTAL 2018: 602

Boomers should be exit taxed heavily for escaping the mess they created.

back to top

About one third of the UK population increase in recent years is a result of natural population growth – where the number of people being born in the UK is higher than the number of people dying every year. The remaining two thirds of the population increase is the result of net immigration into the United Kingdom.

About half of the people coming to the UK in 2015 were from the European Union. Recent data indicates that there are approximately 3 million EU citizens living and working in the UK. This equates to 5% of the UK population. The other half came from non-EU countries.

That’s …6 million.

+10%-ish.

If you have another country’s passport, you shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

And that’s just official, not illegal.

And new, not second+ generations in the multicultural colonies.

Immigration is a contentious topic in the UK, with many people believing that it is too high.

Natives.

Because of this immigration was one of the most important topics during the recent referendum about whether the UK should remain in or leave the European Union (often referred to as the Brexit referendum.

8 years ago:

The office for National statistics records data on ethnicity in each census. In 2011 it reported that the largest ethnic group in the UK was White (87.17%), followed by Asian or Asian British (6.92%) and Black (3.01%).

There’s no such thing as “Asian British”, like there’s no such thing as a hyphenated American. You’re either American or not. Asia is not in Britain. Race/ethnicity is not citizenship.

2.0% Mixed

0.9% Other

Most white people in Britain are descended from a number of different ethnic groups, not all of which are indigenous to the British Isles.

non sequitur but nice way of saying ‘invaders’

and they’re not from different forensic groups at all, same race, same subrace/s

They were all THE SAME RACE.

This heritage reflects the history of the British Isles, which has been invaded on a number of occasions.

The black population in Britain has roots going back to the 15th and 16th centuries.

No, it doesn’t. That isn’t a root. Africa is a root.

Phylogenetic tree root of blacks is Africa.

The British Asian population also has a long history which began in the 17th century.

No. It began in Asia, where they belong.

Plus, that isn’t a long history, that’s a blip.

Diversity + Proximity = War

The 2011 census showed that Christianity remains the dominant religion in the UK. The number of people who reported that they were Christians in the UK was 37,583,962, which is 59.49% of the total population. The number of people who report that they are Christian fell by more than 12% between 2001 and 2011, from 71.58% in 2001.

Shame.

The next most common responses were either no religion (25.67%) or religion not stated (7.17%). The number of people who gave one of these answers increased from 23.18% in 2001 to 32.84% in 2011.

92.33% combined.

Jews 0.43%

Muslim 4.41%

Well, guess it was nice knowing them.

And this is outdated.

Islam is the second most commonly reported religion in the UK with 4.41% of the population.

49,808,000 English 1st language speakers.

546,000 Polish locusts.

273,000 Punjabi 3rd place.

Arab 7, French 8, Chinese 9.

Note: Indigenous languages such as Welsh and Scots do not feature on this list as they were more commonly reported as second languages.

As this chart from the ONS shows, the proportion of people in London whose first language is not English is far higher (around 20%) in London than it is in the rest of the country.

According to the 2011 census, the most commonly spoken non-indigenous language in the UK was Polish, with 546,000 native speakers in England and Wales – approximately 1% of the population.

From one nation, the locusts of Europe. The chavvy breeder scum of the white race.

And that’s just speakers, not other Poles. Because they’re all such nationalists and Poland is so great, right?

They hate immigrant invasion the MOST.

source: Americans who never lived with them.

If they’re so proud of Poland, could they fuck off back there?

If they’re defending the West, can they do it from Poland?

But diversity is our strength! At least low IQ places like Poland aren’t fucking over the country permanently…

A recent study by the OECD reported that the UK had the lowest literacy rate of any developed nation. It reported that around 20% of English 16-19 year olds have low literacy skills.

This is backed up by a report from the UK’s Literacy Trust, which explains that 16% of adults in England are “functionally illiterate”. This means that their literacy is below what is expected of the average 11 year old.

And they can vote. 1 in 6 illiterates.

Millions of them.

We call them Labour voters, the name is ironic.

They should be forced into a school for adults until up to speed. As long as it takes.

87 billion per year down the shitter. Because education works on genetic IQ…. right?

According to Eurostat, the United Kingdom is the fourth most densely populated country in the EU

At the time of the last census, in 2011, the population of Greater London was 8,173,941.

By 2015, Greater London’s population had increased to 8,673,713.

An extra half a million on record, (probably including emigrants, which it shouldn’t).

The UK’s ageing population puts increasing pressure on the country’s public services and economy.

MYTH Dead people don’t strain services.

Fertility rate in the UK has also fallen over the past 50 years, from 2.95 children per woman in 1965 to 1.82 children per woman in 2014.

Good, pre-WW levels. Sustainable, among ourselves.

This is below the replacement rate (2.33 children per woman across the world, but 2.0 children per woman in industrialised countries) but higher than the EU average fertility rate which in 2014 was just 1.58 children per woman.

If you don’t force men to marry, no kids.

We live in the marriage-free world.

But yes, EU and other socialism is literally dying.

And, finally, at the bottom of the pyramid we can see the effects of a dip in the UK’s birth rate during the early 21st century, followed by an boost in recent years.

Non-native births, discounted.

Race is not citizenship. A passport entitles you to nothing from the outgroup.

One cult to rule them all, one cult to find them

Why are all cults, rape cults, masquerading as polygamy? The German church with the cages to this day?

Remember as you read about the sudden urgency in the history of the human species for correctional sex re-education.

I am going to explain the root of all PC (ambitious) and the purpose of Sex Ed re pedophiles.
I have gleaned this from teachers.

“And PC reacts against The Truth. Truth is to be subordinated to the goal of subversion. Unwanted Truths are Hate Facts. Universally known Truths are replaced with narrow scraps of bureaucratically defined principles; spontaneous and obvious knowledge is contested, undermined, broken-up and contradicted one fragment at a time and replaced with Professional Consensus (Peer Review).”

from https://thoughtprison-pc.blogspot.com/

I defy the Politically Correct Cult’s value judgments. I deny them and live in opposition to them.

This is rare. There are also efforts to learn their tactics and dig up what they really are. The process of sexualising children into endorsing their own rape (and, later, forming a ‘trauma bond’ they can easily gaslight as ‘love’) is the goal of pedophilia, both legally and literally. The corruption of the innocent was always a crime dating back to ancient times as a treasonous attack on everything society had developed and swore to protect. It also happened to be most important in the sexual realm but modern politics weirdly only recognises the political.

I thought the personal was political?

Can’t get more personal than intimate. Why was it ever the state’s affair what you did with various holes?

Celebrate or shame, that’s a moral claim from ‘postmodernists’ and a porous church/state boundary.

Kids already figure out p>v.

What you need to teach them is all the depraved stuff it wouldn’t occur to most adults to even TRY.

As Bandura taught us, kids don’t imitate any harmful instruction given by an authority figure with a duty of care based on trust.

Child rape hasn’t skyrocketed since they included instructions on it for ‘safety’.

An under-developed body isn’t more prone to injury and disease…. /s

Pair bonding is never mentioned and ‘free love’ pleasure considered the purpose of babymaking.

Darwin is never taught in classes ostensibly about reproduction…. any purpose beyond sexual narcissism is banned.

They won’t call a boyfriend a lover but they’ll tell you it’s practically compulsory, expected you shop around and refine your prostitution skills with a stream of them. No alternatives. Being used up like a cum rag is ‘fun’.

No statistical consequences, whither informed consent?

Shame the virgins because freedom and empowerment.

Straight men valued by how homosexual they behave, sexually. A soulless hedonic treadmill of superficiality, numbers and filthy stories of infection for the entertainment of people who hate you.

They won’t tell you how the Pill works (chemical abortifacient for couples fucking*) but they’ll tell you how great it is. Be a happy cum sponge because the Patriarchy is flattering you by wanting to fuck you and nothing else, ever. Being a hole that is a goal is your life’s goal.

False consciousness is at play.

“Let’s punish Patriarchy by being its whore” is the general gist.

According to Piaget’s work, prior to puberty children are biologically incapable of abstract thought. This is why nothing is real to them except Santa. They live in a fantasy of equally valid ideas, having no experience or brainpower to question it. This includes criticism or safety concerns.

‘Nuff said.

Naturally, in all their discussions of celebrating feelings, sexual disgust is banned.

No means no but you aren’t allowed to find someone ugly, physically and especially morally.

Wait, isn’t that the primary reason for No? Attraction just ain’t there?

That conveniently limits the options to deny them as social excuse, dunnit?

Attraction is from ‘animal magnetism’. Sexual attraction you’ve heard of, the inverse you haven’t.

Complete coincidence, huh?

“Sex Ed” makes sense only as AA for the horny and sexually repulsive. The unfit.

Moral repulsion must be extinguished as ‘hate’. It resembles independent thought.

Can’t have cultural standards creeping up on the degenerates, can we?

Can’t have women striking from the likes of Tindr and clubbing.
Selection pressures are the Devil, Hitler.

Sexual selection is oppression.

Explaining random -isms and tidbits of their fevered wet dreams.

Down with Western Civ

Er …. why?

What did Western Civ have, that none of the others have?

That normies, powerless normies who aren’t running banks or launching IPOs, would care about?

That young soy men would especially care about?

Sexual selection, freedom of choice. Sexual discretion.

It’s like Neo-Freudianism. Everything is about sex, all of politics is now rebranded as hate crime if you’re not doing the Devil’s tango with a fat borderline tranny. A multicultural orgy of “acceptance” because who has lower standards than a Third Worlder accustomed to drinking their own shit? Sex slaves deported if they don’t comply, EE women…

This keeps the weak men in line with dopamine hits, pacified from political rebellion so it is required weaker-willed women are caught early in childhood, at their most docile.

The personal is NOT political, telling people how to use their bodies is tyranny.

No borders, no escape. Everything they do makes sense, suddenly.

When did Sex Ed become suddenly vital to the re-education of children?

Around the time Darwin was writing about the quality barriers to existence.

Minus the gaslighting efforts, the cream of the genetic crop would marry out of the dating scene and never give the creepy losers who want to rape them ‘a chance’.

Chance? This isn’t equality. It’s sanity. Ambiguity makes everyone think they’re desperate.

Why are there more pedo teachers than ever before? Boundary formation.

Personal boundary testing.

[If a person wants to fuck you, knowing you don’t want them, that’s a rapist. Consent is not complex. Assume no and move on.]

Follow the slutty model, girls, the role model.

White guilt, white models.

Why is James Bond white? How are those kid’s films?

Kids who believe Brave New World style that their body belongs to anyone who gives them the insult of cheap attention (lechery) will never lead to adults with a healthy sense of self-ownership, dignity and property rights, sworn enemy of the Cultural Marxist.

Instead they’ll eat their feelings and medicate with a void where identity and pride should be. The repressed repulsion will become anti-natal, morphing into a bizarre desire for sex but a disgust for babies.

Disgust for the degenerate becomes disgust for their body’s reproductive function and the truly innocent.

Babymaking, the conceptual association divorced of ‘pleasure’, stripped of excuses, triggers deep feelings of shame and loathing, for reasons too long repressed to explain.

It’s an easy link to test: more sexual partners versus disgust at the thought of parenthood.

If you want to trigger leftists, including the hidden ones, tell them sexual repulsion is a human right.

Any meme effort that cuts this Gordian knot instantly exposes and kills their grassroots support.

Sexual orientation isn’t a choice now, is it? Like how being male and female never used to be a choice.

See, the ‘sexuality is a choice’ stage is actually the next one. Asexuals, just try it ‘fluidity’, female Viagra, the Pill already made women (and male users/beneficiaries) less choosy, more unnatural, biologically.

If old men didn’t have access to Viagra, what would they do with their time?

If young men didn’t assume all young women were on the Pill, who would they flirt with?

MOTHER Nature has limits for good reason. Masturbation with another person is postmodern freakishness.

This repulsion line cuts off both Hydra heads, forever. It exposes the true ‘rape culture’.

Why did the SJW and Muslim rowing on national TV seem like allies?

Like predators fighting over a still-dying piece of flesh?

Trying to discredit sexual repulsion as an impulse of evolutionary protection. Libertarians should be outraged. Your right to say NO.

Suddenly all the tradthots and cuckservatives think if you don’t want a particular race, you’re genociding them.

*Alabama hasn’t outlawed all abortion because the Pill is still dispensed to the ‘sexually active’. Because rape babies are fine but their hooker ‘mistress’ could tell the wife.

Teachers’ unions HATE THEM!

Need a piece of paper? You sure?

Moneyball your education.

“You can’t put a price on a good education.”

You know, you were right….

Teachers will, by and large, go the way of horse-shoe makers and coachmen.

Protip: I know a lot of people who do these. Take 2 fun courses (they can be zany) for every 4 serious ones.

How long can they deny HBD?

Waiting to be a father is irresponsible, imagine my shock.

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/oct/31/babies-born-to-older-fathers-tend-to-have-more-medical-issues

“The records showed that children born to men aged 45 and over had a 14% greater risk of premature birth, low birth weight and being admitted to neonatal intensive care compared with babies born to younger fathers.”

Geriatric fathers, yes.
If you’re past middle-age (36-7 in men) and old enough to be a grandfather.

Infants born to men aged 45 and over also scored lower on the Apgar newborn health test, and were 18% more likely to have seizures compared with infants born to fathers aged 25 to 34 years, according to the study in the British Medical Journal.

Why not state all the findings, including compared with <25?

Boomer readership, that’s why. 60 is the new 40 though, sure.

For women, the risk of gestational diabetes was greater when they had children with older men.”

Paternal age as a medical risk factor is long known, I’ve posted on it.

Their study.

http://www.bmj.com/content/363/bmj.k4372

“This is something else to take into consideration,” he said. “There are potential risks with waiting. Men should not think that they have an unlimited runway.”

Why isn’t male fertility and issues like impotence mentioned in biology class? Men deserve to know, it’s important life planning. Modern men don’t realise their fertility is dropping steeply until they eventually go to conceive or get a random sperm count for other reasons.

I’d go so far as to call it a public health issue.

They are not fully informed, the information is withheld from them. Where’s the full consent for that wait, if they don’t understand what it might entail?

Obviously the man commenting on the study tries to downplay it but other studies I’ve posted didn’t find mild differences, in some cases extreme (such as psychiatric risk) and that’s without looking at whether the child is mixed-race, that includes the risk even further. Good luck getting that published.

“increases in health risks might have across populations as paternal age continues to rise.”

If it’s a risk across a population, it is also a risk for the individuals within it, showing up his earlier weasel words about ‘individuals’ to be a lie. You don’t have medical complications as a population, it’s personal.

“When I talk to couples about health risks, I use the lottery as an analogy,”

You use a con about people who can’t do maths to… lie to people who can’t do maths.

“Even if your risk for something goes up 10-20%, the absolute risk for an individual

doesn’t change

At all?

that much.”

Hear that gentlemen?


Who gives a shit about your individual risk going up by 20%? Not this guy! He’d rather not offend you but let you slowly become infertile because, by the time you figure it out, you’ll be powerless to do anything about it. White men need to have fewer children, as other Guardian articles have informed us.

You aren’t entitled to oppressive white male fertility.

The researchers calculating risk across the field (here a part of gerontology) know more maths than the doctors downplaying it.

“Eisenberg and his colleagues suggest changes in the DNA of older men’s sperm might explain their findings.”

Berg-berg-berg-berg et al.

“The concern is backed up by previous work, including a Harvard study last year that found births through IVF fell as the fathers’ age increased.”

Duh.

IVF isn’t magic.

“Studies have shown that advanced paternal age is associated with negative health behaviours such as smoking and frequent alcohol consumption, obesity, chronic disease, mental illness, and sub-fertility,” she writes, adding that all are linked to health problems in newborns.”

Sub-fertility, which many clueless men have and they don’t care to warn you about.

It’s almost like men evolved to have children while they were healthier.

From the BMJ article itself:

“Though the effects of advanced maternal age on perinatal outcomes have been extensively studied,

can’t blame women, credits on that excuse are maxed out

research on the impact of older fathers on the health of offspring has been limited mostly to the risk of congenital disease.345678

we’re scared of offending old guys with money

The high number of male germ cell divisions in aging fathers has been proposed to increase the risk of autism, genetic abnormalities, psychiatric morbidity, and neoplasia in offspring, but recent studies have also suggested a potential paternal effect on perinatal morbidity.691011121314

I didn’t call my article Old fathers, sick babies for nothing.
Can’t get sicker than dead or disabled.

This passes down the germline so one bad breeding decision will affect all their offspring’s fitness too (I think the children will eventually sue for epigenetic damages, on poor lifestyle choices prior to conception as well).

I’ve love to see a study comparing older fathers with younger and recording sexual history (partners and diseases) because you know that has an effect. A medical effect. They’re too chickenshit to do it (and record the same in women but paternal factors into their sperm donation are more likely modified by those behavioural factors, his baby-making factory is the testes area so its prior health and the delivery vehicle’s are especially important).

One common explanation arises from the epigenetic changes that occur within spermatocytes; specifically modifications to histone and DNA methylation in spermatozoa of older men. These alterations occur in regions of the genome that are responsible for several diseases in offspring.15 Disruption of histone methylation in developing male germ cells might be a precursor to aberrant embryonic and placental development, with studies suggesting that paternal imprinting of aging could affect both fetal growth and maternal health during pregnancy.”

Degenerate DNA gets so offended when people stop filtering about it.

No prizes why they didn’t quote this part.

I wonder if their boys (because paternal factors would be stronger to another male) are more or less effeminate than the average? Again, they don’t dare do that study.

Paternal imprinting, that’s a nice word for degeneration on a genetic level.

At least they’re acknowledging men age, I suppose.

Looking at non-Guardian approved science:

https://phys.org/news/2018-10-documents-paternal-transmission-epigenetic-memory.html

“Studies of human populations and animal models suggest that a father’s experiences such as diet or environmental stress can influence the health and development of his descendants. How these effects are transmitted across generations, however, remains mysterious.”

I’m guessing the sperm.

….

Just a random, wild guess.

“Epigenetic changes do not alter the DNA sequences of genes, but instead involve chemical modifications to either the DNA itself or the histone proteins with which DNA is packaged in the chromosomes. These modifications influence gene expression, turning genes on or off in different cells and at different stages of development. The idea that epigenetic modifications can cause changes in gene expression that are transmitted from one generation to the next, known as “transgenerational epigenetic inheritance,” is now the focus of intense scientific investigation.

For many years, it was thought that sperm do not retain any histone packaging and therefore could not transmit histone-based epigenetic information to offspring. Recent studies, however, have shown that about 10 percent of histone packaging is retained in both human and mouse sperm.”

So …more lying to men.
Get obese, it’s fine! Drink like a fish! Your kids will be fine!

Our ancestors never knew that vice… had a price.
https://biblehub.com/numbers/14-18.htm

They didn’t have iPhones, we’re so much wiser than them.

“The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.‘”

What does that even mean? Nature can’t see what you’re doing.

Trust the “experts” who profiteer from fertility treatments and hate white men!

“”Furthermore, where the chromosomes retain histone packaging of DNA is in developmentally important regions, so those findings raised awareness of the possibility that sperm may transmit important epigenetic information to embryos,” Strome said.”

Wait, could rednecks be even smarter if they drank less?

Was Prohibition, pro-white?

“These findings show that the DNA packaging in sperm is important, because offspring that did not inherit normal sperm epigenetic marks were sterile, and it is sufficient for normal germline development,” Strome said.”

Money shot?

Sinner father, no grandchildren?

That is a divinely calculated revenge, all their paternal investment wasted.

Detour:

https://thebiblicalworld.blogspot.com/2011/01/childlessness-and-bible-2-defective.html

“The presumption of female defect is confirmed in a letter to the Ugarit king about a woman who failed to produce any children for her husband after an extended period of time. The letter relates how the husband used the infertility as an occasion to take a second wife. It was only when he failed to produce children with the second woman that he was then considered to be the defective one”

LOL

“While monogamy was probably the norm in antiquity,”

louder for cucks at the back

“childlessness was one of the most common reasons that a man would resort to a bigynous marriage”

But God is punishing them, going around that in favour of dysgenic reproduction is a sin.

Women could divorce infertile or impotent men under the Catholic church, it was so important.

“The goal is to analyze how the chromatin packaging changes in the parent,” she said. “Whatever gets passed on to the offspring has to go through the germ cells. We want to know which cells experience the environmental factors, how they transmit that information to the germ cells, what changes in the germ cells, and how that impacts the offspring.”

I doubt it’s for the greater good.

Could addiction be genetic?

Lawyers are celebrating just thinking of it.

By demonstrating the importance of epigenetic information carried by sperm, the current study establishes that if the environment experienced by the father changes the epigenetics of sperm chromosomes, it could affect the offspring.”

Could?

A few others, while I’m here.

Ya gotta have chutzpah to believe the science.

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/apr/16/scientists-discover-dozens-of-new-genes-for-hair-colour

“The colour of a person’s hair is one of the most heritable features of their appearance, with studies on twins suggesting that genetics explains up to 97% of hair colour.”

Race explains 100%. Subrace especially.

https://www.nature.com/articles/s41588-018-0100-5

They’re right that hair colour isn’t a matter of sexual preference …but race is.

““Pigments are far more than just cosmetic – they are important for the immune system and play a role in many diseases,” said Spector. “Understanding the genetics could lead to new therapies.”

They tried that with African heart medication, it was taken off the label.

They’d rather let black men keel over and die than admit they’re genetically different.

K-shift in mice:

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/jul/13/scientists-discover-brains-neural-switch-for-becoming-an-alpha-male

“Intriguingly, the experience of winning appeared to leave an imprint on the mice, making them more assertive, even when their brains’ were no longer being artificially controlled. They were found to be more combative in a second scenario in which they competed to occupy the warm corner in a cage with an ice-cold floor.”

So you see, they can’t let men grow up. There’d be no politically useful regression then.
Buy stock in pajamas.
They can knock out that part of the brain too. They don’t mention this. This makes me suspicious.

“The findings, they suggest, could have applications in understanding a variety of psychiatric conditions where people exhibit overly dominant behaviours, or lack motivation to compete socially.”

Psychopathy and depression (or r-selection, as a trait).
Psychopaths are immune to depression. What makes others sad, makes them mad.
The study itself has nothing to do with “alpha” as Americans consider it, an alpha is never single in biology but part of a breeding pair.

http://scienceblogs.com/clock/2009/08/23/no-more-alpha-male/

The study is really about psychopathy in the extreme form (genetic engineering, useful for the military) and social dominance in prosocial, milder forms (K) which cannot be undone (even in GE mice) as a natural maturation process. Its absence of activation (say, from the amygala circuits) could explain effete males. Again, they gloss over that.

I noticed.

Genes influence subject choice.
https://www.theguardian.com/science/2016/jun/16/a-level-subject-choice-is-strongly-influenced-by-genes-scientists-say

Not IQ?
Isn’t that a huge confound that should be studied?
And why force children to study languages then? Isn’t that oppression when they could study something else?

“Birney warns that the findings do not imply that it is possible to predict a student’s subject choice, or achievement, from their genome.”

trans. Don’t look in the race box, please, don’t look in the race box. I don’t want to get the sack.

“As schooling and other factors vary greatly from person to person it is unlikely that genetics is the dominant factor in A-level choice.”

The likelihood was calculated.

“The scientists found that this was indeed the case, with 50-80% of subject choice down to genetic influences.”

https://www.theguardian.com/science/2015/jul/23/genes-influence-academic-ability-across-all-subjects-latest-study-shows

Academic ability …. not IQ?

How is GPA not a reliable proxy for IQ, on that point?

GPA is basically just the PC term for IQ. Mathematically.

Video: Smartphone addiction

That was the intention.

It’s the new TV and it lives in your bed. Purpose: political brainwashing (propaganda).

The idiot block.

It’s replacing Church or other moral instruction. With “buy on credit, free hedonism forever!”

The banks are behind it and national debt behind that. Conspicuous consumption must rise simply to keep par.

How many people with ADD just refuse to admit they’re internet addicts? Regardless of whether it’s porn or reddit, doesn’t matter.

Read a book.

It isn’t about the information, that’s an excuse for your format addiction.

Your brain is in lust with your phone. It’s as attentive as a spouse over the honeymoon.

A side effect?

If the kids all act high time preference, IQ differences seem to disappear.

I bet Apple will end up being sued for retarding children.

Shall we all go back to the humble Crackberry? (Best Apple rumour ever).

Study more, better grades

Based on:

“Education is wasted on the lazy and stupid, and they’re the same people. That’s Dunning-Kruger. They’re blind to what they’re missing because they’re missing it!
“If someone works harder than you, they deserve to beat you! Add up hours studied and you’ll find female (and male) conscientiousness isn’t bias, they activate with their IQ the traits which help them. The guy or girl “winging it” the night before deserves to fail*. Low IQ don’t have the IQ to know what they’re NOT doing! That isn’t everyone else’s fault! If there are systemic forces against men in some fields, the same must be true of women in other fields because that is how systems work, ya dummies!”
“..It just so happens by nature that there are more lazy men! So yeah, they fail! Confound!

You’re supposed to control for prevalence without ignoring the population. It’s like the IQ studies conducted by men that exclude stupid, lower class men to push the middle-class male genius narrative because the former dwarfs the latter mathematically if they don’t rig it.

(They also don’t control for education and class because they’re faking, like saying ugly people are intelligent in spite of correlations).

Another example of ignoring half: promiscuity/divorce risk studies that never look at men. That is scientism, like ignoring cooling data. They have looked but refuse to publish because it hurt their feelings. I’d like to see an atheist/divorce risk study.

You cannot ignore the left half of the bell curve, men overpopulate it!

Muh Bell Curve (ignores 50%).

They’ve simply never survived in these numbers before because responsibility is the new leprosy in a decadent West. It makes a lot of sense actually. No prior society (that didn’t collapse) ever had to tolerate this much stupid and it shows.”

I decided to drag up a study or two for the idiots who’d dispute it.

First, look at the materials put out to businesses.

“Of the five main personality factors, Conscientiousness has been shown to be the most consistent, significant predictor of workplace performance.10, 11, 12, 13, 14 For example, meta-analyses on the prediction of job performance from personality dimensions have demonstrated that broad measures of Conscientiousness predict overall job performance,15, 16 even controlling for cognitive ability.17, 18 

AKA you can’t cry sexism, conscientious men (like Christians) do fine. Actually, that might be why. There are plenty of conscientious men so it isn’t an exclusive thing, the averages only vary slightly.

In addition to overall job performance, broad measures of Conscientiousness have been shown to predict a number of other valued workplace behaviors, such as organizational citizenship 19, 20 and leadership 21

Emotional Intelligence.

as well as undesirable behaviors such as procrastination, 22 to name a few.

Conscientiousness is the best noncognitive predictor of performance across a wide variety of job types and work outcomes.”

NON COGNITIVE PREDICTOR OF PERFORMANCE.

Mr “Emotional Intelligence isn’t real”.

You have emotions. You have intelligence. You have an EI score, like it or not.

we framed the article as a series of 7 questions. These 7 questions deal with (1) personality and multidimensional models of performance, (2) personality taxonomies and the five‐factor model, (3) the effects of situations on personality–performance relationships, (4) the incremental validity of personality over cognitive ability, (5) the need to differentiate personality constructs from personality measures, (6) the concern with faking on personality tests, and (7) the use of personality tests in attempting to address adverse impact. We dovetail these questions with our perspectives and insights in the hope that this will stimulate further discussion with our readership.”

reference B, 85 years of research

http://emilkirkegaard.dk/en/wp-content/uploads/Schmidt-and-Hunter-1998-Validity-and-Utility-Psychological-Bulletin.pdf

This article summarizes the practical and theoretical implications of 85 years of research in personnel selection. On the basis of meta-analytic findings, this article presents the validity of 19 selection procedures for predicting job performance and training performance and the validity of paired combinations of general mental ability (GMA) and Ihe 18 other selection procedures.

Overall, the 3 combinations with the highest multivariate validity and utility for job performance were GMA plus a work sample test (mean validity of .63), GMA plus an integrity test (mean validity of .65), and GMA plus a structured interview (mean validity of .63). A further advantage of the latter 2 combinations is that they can be used for both entry level selection and selection of experienced employees. The practical utility implications of these summary findings are substantial. The implications of these research findings for the development of theories of job performance are discussed.

And when you look for a genetic connection ‘cos genes, like hips, don’t lie.

“The heritability of conscientiousness facets and their relationship to IQ and academic achievement”

“Our findings confirmed positive associations between IQ and the facets of Competence and Dutifulness (ranging 0.11–0.27), with academic achievement showing correlations of 0.27 and 0.15 with these same facets and 0.15 with Deliberation. All conscientiousness facets were influenced by genes (broad sense heritabilities ranging 0.18–0.49) “

Whew, up to 50%!

The idea of a smart douchebag is a myth to keep them appeased, or at best, they’re only mildly above average (1-2SD), true genius can cooperate (and self-regulate) but idiots can’t perceive anyone above them.

Your IQ isn’t an excuse to be antisocial.
