Guess we don’t need philosophy and English majors.
But seriously, that obliterates most of the population – who aren’t collegiate material.

Funky music in this:
Einstein ripped off Henri Poincare, his own mathematician wife (whom he divorced), Olinto De Pretto for the equation, George Fitzgerald and Hendrik Lorentz.
Tesla also tried to come up with an e=m type equation for the Swami, explained at length in the press as uniting all things (yet who is known for trying that?) and spoke to Einstein later. Years later.
Swami Vivekananda, late in the year 1895 wrote in a letter to an English friend, “Mr. Tesla thinks he can demonstrate mathematically that force and matter are reducible to potential energy.
Einstein was fifteen or sixteen at the time.
Tesla, on Einstein later: “like a beggar clothed in purple, whom ignorant people take for a king.”
“Professor Bartocci traced a link between De Pretto and Einstein, through Einstein’s best friend, Michele Besso.”
Studies have generally found Ashkenazi Jews to have an average IQ in the range of 107 to 115,
That is FULLY average.
The bulk of studies in the field have found they are average.
Hold my dreidel.
and Ashkenazi Jews as a group have had successes in intellectual fields far out of proportion to their numbers.
A 2005 scientific paper, “Natural History of Ashkenazi Intelligence”, proposed that Jews as a group inherit significantly higher verbal and mathematical intelligence and somewhat lower spatial intelligence than other ethnic groups, on the basis of inherited diseases
Verbal is education, being bilingual in a married household with books. They never control for this, nor “tutoring” classes giving the kids a maths advantage, mathematics can fully be taught. That is not testing adults.
Lower spatial is the real money, spatial is connected to creativity, innovation and genius.
There shouldn’t be a verbal section at all, (a bilinguistic confound presents) nor a math one in children (class confound).
Verbal is just a memory test, maths a precocious procedure taught. Nothing INNATE.
Consider the following:
~The proportion of Jews with IQ’s of 140 or more is estimated to be about six times the proportion of any other ethnic group.
Not average. Stop fiddling with figures.
~ Although Jews constitute only about two-tenths of one percent of the world’s population, Jews won 29 percent of the Nobel Prizes in literature, medicine, physics and chemistry in the second half of the 20th century. So far this century, the figure is 32 percent. And these Jews of whom we speak were almost exclusively male Jews primarily of western European ancestry (less than one-tenth of one percent of the world’s population), in spite of pervasive discrimination, numerous legal barriers, frequent persecution, and the Holocaust.
Nothing has ever been stolen in academia ever. Say, who invented the so-called Nobel? Who votes?
~From 1870 until 1950, Jewish leadership in such fields as literature, music, visual arts, biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and philosophy equaled somewhere from four to fourteen times the Jewish proportion of the population in Europe and North America.
~In 1954, 28 children in the New York City public school system were found to have IQ’s of 170 or higher – 24 of these were Jewish.
What was the religion of the person testing them? Were they all tested again as adults?
Oh, so it’s okay if they say they’re privileged?
At the same time, Christians were doing just the opposite: priests and monks of the dominant Roman Catholic Church – also usually among the best and brightest in their communities– were prohibited from marrying, thus “selecting out” through celibacy most of these intellectually superior men from the gene pool.
True. Catholicism hates intelligence. Look at the Irish.
The biographies of 280 scientists indicate that the distribution of their age at the time of their greatest scientific contributions in their careers (age–genius curve) is similar to the age distribution of criminals (age–crime curve). The age–genius curves among jazz musicians, painters and authors are also similar to the age–crime curve. Further, marriage has a strong desistance effect on both crime and genius. I argue that this is because both crime and genius stem from men’s evolved psychological mechanism which compels them to be highly competitive in early adulthood but “turns off” when they get married and have children. Fluctuating levels of testosterone, which decreases when men get married and have children, can provide the biochemical microfoundation for this psychological mechanism. If crime and genius have the same underlying cause, then it is unlikely that social control theory (or any other theory specific to criminal behavior) can explain why men commit crimes and why they desist.
the same underlying cause being extremes of IQ
obviously they’re not the bloody same
But yes, marriage has a good effect on some people. And?
Should we reward criminals with breeding and punish genius genes?
Tesla’s highest achievement we know was done before aged 30. Clearly, something isn’t right here.
Makes more sense as a sexual selection strategy to attract a mate.
High IQ – prosocial.
Low IQ – antisocial.
Emphasizing the importance of cross-border effectiveness in the contemporary globalized world, we propose that cultural intelligence—the leadership capability to manage effectively in culturally diverse settings—is a critical leadership competency for those with cross-border responsibilities. We tested this hypothesis with multisource data, including multiple intelligences, in a sample of 126 Swiss military officers with both domestic and cross-border leadership responsibilities. Results supported our predictions:
(1) general intelligence predicted both domestic and cross-border leadership effectiveness;
(2) emotional intelligence was a stronger predictor of domestic leadership effectiveness, and
(3) cultural intelligence was a stronger predictor of cross-border leadership effectiveness. Overall, results show the value of cultural intelligence as a critical leadership competency in today’s globalized world.
EI and EQ, so girly, right? What bullshit.
Smarter people are still smart once they leave their magic dirt, really?
The creeps are wrong again.
Teenage motherhood has been associated with a wide variety of negative offspring outcomes including poorer cognitive development. In the context of limitations of previous research, this paper assesses the contemporary relevance of this finding. In this study we investigate the long-term cognitive status (IQ) among 21 year adult offspring born to teenage parents using the Mater University Study of Pregnancy- a prospective birth cohort study, which recruited all pregnant mothers attending a large obstetrical hospital in Brisbane, Australia, from 1981 to 1983. The analyses were restricted to a sub-sample of 2643 mother-offspring pair. Offspring IQ was measured using the Peabody Picture Vocabulary Test at 21 year. Parental age was reported at first clinic visit. Offspring born to teenage mothers (<20 years) have -3.0 (95% Confidence Interval (CI): -4.3, -1.8) points lower IQ compared to children born to mothers ≥20 years and were more likely to have a low IQ (Odds Ratio (OR) 1.7; 95% CI: 1.3, 2.3). Adjustment for a range of confounding and mediating factors including parental socioeconomic status, maternal IQ, maternal smoking and binge drinking in pregnancy, birthweight, breastfeeding and parenting style attenuates the association, though the effect remains statistically significant (-1.4 IQ points; 95% CI: -2.8,-0.1). Similarly the risk of offspring having low IQ remained marginally significantly higher in those born to teenage mothers (OR 1.3; 95% CI: 1.0, 1.9).
In contrast, teenage fatherhood is not associated with adult offspring IQ, when adjusted for maternal age. Although the reduction in IQ is quantitatively small, it is indicative of neurodevelopmental disadvantage experienced by the young adult offspring of teenage mothers. Our results suggest that public policy initiatives should be targeted not only at delaying childbearing in the population but also at supporting early life condition of children born to teenage mothers to minimize the risk for disadvantageous outcomes of the next generation.
The small but significant decrease in offspring IQ combined with other challenges often faced by children of teenage mothers may contribute to increased risk of poor educational performance and intergenerational transfer of psychosocial and health disadvantage.
aka poor fitness among r-types

No! People on reddit lie!?
What we see is a fairly weak relationship between national religiosity and average national IQ. Once we get up to about 20% of the population being Atheist, the IQ of the population flatlines at around 100 from then on. Even worse, in the ~0% Atheist range, there’s a wide range of national IQs from 64 to 100+ — with a cluster of low-IQ nations that appear to be driving the “trend.”
Indeed, if we look at income per capita instead of religiosity, we already see a much better correlation with average IQ. The correlation between religiosity and IQ is too weak to suggest that religiosity predicts intelligence on the national level. Anyone who claims otherwise is grasping at straws.
You could study it..
Religions and IQs driving that aren’t all the same uniformly across the planet.
Just look at the West? No?
I created a less misleading version of Kanazawa’s plot below; judge the data for yourself.
Religious people are less likely to attend college, where tests are taken…
The most religious adults had an average IQ of 97.14, whereas the atheist adults had an average IQ of 103.09. That may seem like a wide gap — 6 whole IQ points — until we remember that anyone in the IQ range of 90-109 is classified as having “average intelligence.”
Yeah, it’s a bigger gap than same-race gender, at least?
Under two points, you must be so proud. What measurement error?
So really, all Kanazawa showed is that the average person has average intelligence regardless of how religious they are.
How Cognitive Genetic Factors Influence Fertility Outcomes: A Mediational SEM Analysis
Utilizing a newly released cognitive Polygenic Score (PGS) from Wave IV of Add Health (n = 1,886), structural equation models (SEMs) examining the relationship between PGS and fertility (which is approximately 50% complete in the present sample), employing measures of verbal IQ and educational attainment as potential mediators, were estimated. The results of indirect pathway models revealed that verbal IQ mediates the positive relationship between PGS and educational attainment, and educational attainment in turn mediates the negative relationship between verbal IQ and a latent fertility measure. The direct path from PGS to fertility was non-significant. The model was robust to controlling for age, sex, and race; furthermore, the results of a multigroup SEM revealed no significant differences in the estimated path coeficients across sex. These results indicate that those predisposed towards higher verbal IQ by virtue of higher PGS values are also predisposed towards trading fertility against time spent in education, which contributes to those with higher PGS values producing fewer offspring at this stage in their life course.
Jews score higher on verbal IQ….
Don’t marry the bimbo.
Should also look at spousal IQ disparity.
Presumably, bigger = higher % divorce.
In ‘The Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life’, Herrnstein and Murray reported a negative relation between intelligence and divorce risks. This article analyses the relationship between intelligence and divorce risks for two different Dutch cohorts, for which data on their intelligence measured during their childhood, are available. A positive relation between intelligence and divorce risk is found for the Dutch fifty-year-olds born around 1940. Among this older cohort, divorced respondents have a higher mean intelligence score than respondents who stayed together with their spouses. However, a negative relation between intelligence and divorce risk is found for the Dutch thirty-year-olds born around 1958. Among this younger cohort, divorced respondents have a lower mean intelligence than respondents who stayed together. A possible explanation of the shift is that the democratisation of divorce over time has altered the nature of divorce from a highly selective to a more normal event.
Or r-types stopped marrying as much, from pressure. Therefore, fewer divorces.
