Typical Asian IQ lower than Whites

I thought this was obvious but I hadn’t cited why before.

Flynn is one of the greatest writers on IQ. He wrote a book on it.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Asian-Americans-Achievement-Beyond-Iq/dp/0805811109

Historically, this has been the case, there isn’t something magical and innate about it. Mathematics, while teachable, is only one element of IQ. Then there’s the widespread cheating, which would drop the score average a few points, bringing us to approximate parity in spite of their educational investments and parental abuse.

Many modern studies make the sampling error of only studying brain-drain immigrants, which confounds by class (the biggest factor) and education (affluence to be in the first world). They also isolate specific populations of Asia instead of testing the entire race.
Flynn did the leg-work. If you want to know about Asian IQ, this is the seminal book on the topic.
Accept nothing less.
He distinguishes between IQ and achievement because no, they are not the same. The variables are discrete.
“In this case, the author shows that Chinese Americans’ occupational achievements are generally far beyond their IQ — as if they had a mean IQ 21 points higher than they actually do.”
You can’t blame nepotism on all of it.
We can learn from them to boost our own. Not to copy everything, but some of it.

Here’s a taster he wrote on the topic if you’re unsure about his writing.

Abstract:

“The problem addressed in this paper is first to thoroughly document,
and then to explain, the impressive scholastic, occupational, and income
achievements of Asians in America. In the past, some psychologists
have cited apparently impressive evidence of a superiority in general
cognitive ability. It turns out that that this evidence is seriously flawed
– and not merely because of failure to allow for the intergenerational
increase in scores but also as a result of seemingly endlessly compounded
sampling deficits and corrections and adjustments introduced into the
norming studies. Be that as it may, with IQ held constant, the Asian’s
achievements exceed those of Whites by a huge amount. Once an IQ based
explanation has been discredited, attention focuses on issues rarely
discussed by psychologists – such as other psychological characteristics
and multiple cultural supports. These are contrasted with those operating
in other cultural groups, some of which perform far below what might
otherwise be expected.”

In pure IQ terms, Asian supremacy is a myth. Do not conflate the variables.

This book debunks in full why that is and I can add nothing to it.

IQ isn’t everything, as the “model minority” show.

Here, Asian is a PC term used to refer to certain types of religious rape gangs. It isn’t a paragon in our minds, they represent something closer to the Asian average (look at the rape rates and compare to Africa), and yes, regression to the racial and lower-class mean does apply in these cases, over time (as they’d be breeding in those populations and living in those conditions).

Quotes on women and misogyny

Warning: food for thought.

I was deeply dissatisfied with my final post of the year and figured I’d slapdash together something that is more intellectually stimulating, in a similar vein. It’s only mildly controversial if you’re interested in labels over substance.

“When women act like women, they are accused of being inferior. When women act like human beings, they are accused of behaving like men.”

Does that sound like a healthy civilization with any longevity?

What happened to all the meritocratic arguments to incentivize contributions in capitalist theory?

So we can accept racial differences and class differences and national differences and age differences but sex differences you can prove in a scanner or under a microscope are evil (well if God made…) and we must all be the same (the male standard is also shit) in misery and behavioural equality, the neuroscience be damned? Is that the world you want, putting power trip fantasies aside?

No society with catch 22s will survive, let alone thrive.
There must be two paths: to do, and to not do. There must be clear praise and condemnation and no blurring between those paths. No muddying the waters or blurring it for certain people. Either a thing is right or wrong, unless you are a moral relativist and then you believe in neither, for they’re absolute concepts.

The logic between sexes must be consistent also, it is no more right for a woman to steal than a man (Ten Commandments shout-out). It is no more moral for a man to assault, as they do, mathematically. Naturalistic fallacy is not an excuse, we are all biological and still retain the human quality of impulse control.

At the least, we ought.

We can uplift both sexes in a society without oppressing anyone. The technology exists now, where most of us can probably live in leisure most of the week. If we discussed it and developed it, i.e., cooperated together for mutual betterment! Where did you get the idea oppression has limits? It can’t be historical… Wealth is the hard cap but aside from that, men won’t be spared the same societal factors women would live under.

e.g. Employed singles of either sex still pay for the living of feckless breeders and the spawn without limit.

Misogyny is prominent when rich men wish to evade their intrasexual responsibilities and do so by blaming the women.
https://disenchantedscholar.wordpress.com/2017/12/10/da-wimminz/

You can’t appreciate your fellows? Well, we don’t have a future then. Darwin always wins, darlings. Think of the tribe, we are not atomized, lonely individuals like the 20th century tries to force down our throats.

Where it exists, oppression spreads. Sadists work that way. It’s a betrayal whoever is on the receiving end, these circumstances predate our birth. Nobody living is fully responsible for this system, another red herring.

If we spent a little of our time wasted on the Third World that doesn’t want to change on improving our own lot, imagine what could be achieved. Immigration and multiculturalism are a deliberate ruse to throw off our resources, especially time, into establishing what used to be a norm. We’re stuck playing catch-up and tempers fray, stressed we lash out at the in-group, worsening our collective condition. It is no coincidence we replaced child labour with female. The economy will take its pound of flesh, I suggest we do robots instead of adult people. Society cannot ever again be ignorant of the female potential exemplified around the 1940s but bursting in brief lights long before. Can we afford to turn away our own kin for something minor as not being exactly like the current leaders, who, by the way, are clearly doing such a bang-up job of running things, aren’t they? /s

Do the foolish deserve to fail in any good society? How to deal with their complaints?
Failing men (and women) will complain about it. They’ll say the competition is wrong.
Obviously they will, never before have the dregs had such a loud voice. Nobody else has time to protest that much or write such long blog posts. ~glances at viewer and nods~ The antisocial and envious must be constrained from infecting everyone else like the emotional vampires they are.

They live better than Henry the Bloody Eighth. Prisoners do too. We are the grandiose brats of modern history. To compare farther back is sickening.

Again, there is no need to ban the un-competitive, they simply fall away in a fair contest. It’s obscure to claim a barrier, arbitrarily, in equal opportunity theory, either they misunderstand it or argue in bad faith.

Good for whites, bad for whites, you all say? We have a word for it, prosocial or antisocial. Use the proper terms, the Left will not. Accuracy is our strong suit.

If you only read male philosophers, sorry, but you haven’t read the subject. This isn’t like novels where they’re basically all the same, you get a pass on that for preference. Still, I didn’t skip out on male poets because that would’ve been sexist, you should be fascinated to hear the other side of humanity to which you may never belong. Unless a person really can change their sex? ….Thought not.

Violent crime statistics. MRI studies of psychopathy. Appeal to history (which cannot be demonstrated when called upon, because it never existed in fact, it was a helpful societal myth from around the Enlightenment era). Concepts like Patriarchy are unfalsifiable both ways. However, when I see Husband Selling like they’re subhuman chattel, I might believe in a Matriarchy. If you whine, do it with a smidgen of self-awareness?

Do you want us to try equally hard (effort) or are we allowed to be lazy, pick ONE.
Don’t give us shit for doing as you asked us to…?

That left-side of the bell curve… we all have stories, men don’t really think twice about it though. The sexual prevalence of obnoxious people doesn’t strike them, which is convenient and annoying.

Maybe we need studies.

They don’t even notice the abundance of Men Doing Stupid Shit stories in the newspapers, it’s like a goldfish noticing water. You don’t get to pin a badge on your chest reading Accomplished because you have a Y-chromosome. Arrogance is a male quality in all the myths for a reason, men over-estimate themselves in studies vastly more frequently. Arrogance is not esteem, far from it, nowadays it’s called narcissism. Men need to be the slightly simpler sex, because otherwise they’d have never taken the stupid risks to survive once kicked out of the tribe at the time they hit majority age (otherwise incestuous rape with female relations was a possibility, plus they needed to find a mate by travelling to other local tribes and passing their tests). Shall we bring back that rite of passage, if we want strong men again? You can’t have strength of character without the fatally high stakes that turn boys into men. Courage and stupidity are blurred but while shouting about the former, they literally deny the latter…. which rather suffices to prove our point.

Relevant so included. The mediocre ones are easier to control/rescue from life-risking stupidity that ends up ruining your whole family along with their misplaced sense of arrogance. Other men used to check them in youth but that isn’t happening soon. Average evolved as a sexual preference.

Original form of “the map is not the territory”.

It’s strange they’ll go on about Rand but only the economics and ignore De Beauvoir’s existentialism.
By strange I mean completely intellectually dishonest.
Arguments from bad faith, a certain moral cowardice common in young men at present.
Maybe some slice of laziness where they assume there’s nothing worth reading, but recall, they aren’t misogynists, somehow…
Well, if that prejudiced disdain of anything female isn’t a misogynist, what is?
She pre-empted Dawkin’s Selfish Gene: “Life is occupied in both perpetuating itself and in surpassing itself; if all it does is maintain itself, then living is only not dying.” If you care so much for truth, why not credit? It’s also a sweeping condemnation of hedonism.

If quoting a woman makes you feel insecure, women aren’t the weaker sex.

A little on metrics before I go.

Once the priming effect and other systemic, proven problems in all academic testing are accounted for, women are beginning to score objectively better than men on the blind-marked IQ test.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-2174528/Yes-women-higher-IQ-men-thats-Ill-make-prediction-enrage-them.html
Stick that in your pipe and smoke it. HBD doesn’t tell you what you like, it tells you what is possible.
The narrow definitions of IQ have never been legitimate, and this goes for verbal, for instance, that women score better on overall. It’s a global metric of all-round functioning as ‘g’ or invalid to be counted as the theoretical construct.

IQ is originally a learning ability test and since learning requires obedient following of instructions, you would expect women to do better on it. Learning is feminine-oriented, as an activity. It isn’t a marker of human superiority the way America has tried to make a genius idolatry a form of hero worship over Hollywood. There are no ‘celebrities for smart people’, scientism is old. The Hollywood people actually have to do something – other than exist?
Paper genius is bullshit. They sell the official piece of paper to ditzy parents.

However, IQ and other metrics correlate to life outcomes, it is useful scientifically.

Identification (with celebrities) should inspire you to act, not live vicariously like a stage Mom but claiming involvement in the glamours of STEM work (anyone can get involved, go clean test tubes).

Wilson: “And a second very big question is, since, women are as intelligent as men, or more so, why did feminism take so long, historically, to get started?”

That one is easy, compulsory schooling about 150 years ago, universities places about 60-80 years ago, in living memory women were forbidden from competing fairly. He goes on to make the classic error of assuming men haven’t changed too. They don’t try at school, porn is a distraction during school years and schools are mixed when evidence says that reduces scores. A blend of exam and coursework is best, not to avoid favour – although this too – but because the more metrics of knowledge, the better the qualification in the market.

And isn’t that the point? These aren’t vanity academics.

Boys were pulled off the farms in the middle ages in the first schools, same boom of intellectual achievement happened then too… since it pre-empts the mythical Enlightenment time period, atheists do not wish to discuss that priests might’ve done something right, to the collective denial of male work ethic and social mobility. The middle class sprang up and families were liberated.

Simone on the decline:

“Whatever the country, capitalist or socialist, man was everywhere crushed by technology, made a stranger to his own work, imprisoned, forced into stupidity. The evil all arose from the fact that he had increased his needs rather than limited them; . . . As long as fresh needs continued to be created, so new frustrations would come into being. When had the decline begun?

The day knowledge was preferred to wisdom and mere usefulness to beauty. . . . Only a moral revolution – not a social or political revolution – only a moral revolution would lead man back to his lost truth.”

You don’t read this stuff, you are cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Remember the original feminists objected to the idea that former slaves would be treated better than them, relatives of the men drafting the laws with demonstrable intellect and accomplishments. It has a history soaked in race realism. We can pick and choose the structures from history that suited us best then and apply now. Nobody is doing this. The scientific approach. Machiavelli would be disappointed.

I hope Odin brings you plenty of shiny Asian-produced crap this year.
It’ll break by February, much like my patience on the topics that are life/death to conceited white people. We are all human and all flawed and all riding in the same, sinking boat.

This is a post I’m proud of.

Microcephalin and racial brain size

The skulls thing was popular so here.
*gestures wildly*

http://evoandproud.blogspot.co.uk/2014/04/the-riddle-of-microcephalin.html

So what is going on? Perhaps the derived Microcephalin allele helps us on a mental task that IQ tests fail to measure. Or perhaps it boosts intelligence in some indirect way that shows up in differences between populations but not in differences between individuals.

What would the term for that be?

The second explanation is the one favored in a recent study byWoodley et al. (2014). The authors found a high correlation (r = 0.79) between the incidence of this allele and a population’s estimated mean IQ, using a sample of 59 populations from throughout the world.

They also found a correlation with a lower incidence of infectious diseases, as measured by DALY (disability adjusted life years). They go on to argue that this allele may improve the body’s immune response to viral infections, thus enabling humans to survive in larger communities, which in turn would have selected for increased intelligence:

Hello, Mutation Load!

Come on down!

And since the brain has been proven part of the immune system since, the theory holds.
The Ice Age hypothesis in A Troublesome Inheritance appears to hold weight, the notion of tribal bonding. Altruism is only pathological if its exertion harms your genetic kin, your ingroup.

It’s a forbidden truth because scientism holds all natural things to be good.
Bizarrely, while denying Nature and uplifting Nurture….

I don’t know how well the naturalistic fallacy holds up to dolphin rape, I admit.

Comments are interesting.

I’m still uncomfortable with a philosopher (however intellectually honest) speaking for scientists, especially precise ones like psychometrics and genetics. It’s not as bad as physicists thinking they understand psychology (side-eyes Kaku), when they’re fundamentally opposed intellectual systems, not nearly as horrendous as that. It’s mildly unpleasant. He could phone interview ‘anonymous conservative’ or video interview Wade, acclaimed science expert and author of A Troublesome Inheritance, which didn’t get enough traction. Bruce Charlton would be a golden interview for the ages, you’d have about a year to cover everything superficially.

Jayman might interview, audio. He’s a well-known HBD writer, up there with HBD chick, who seems friendly on twitter.

John Haidt is a wildcard.
Ah, but what a wildcard!

I would pay to see Zizek. Let him go totally off-piece. Just let him, it’s performance ART.

It was so false they blackballed him ever since.

Those would be my recommendations. 

Update: after a conversation about this interview with someone from a very illustrious academic family (members have their own wiki page), the reason his plea will fall on deaf ears is simple – to appreciate truth, you must understand its full complexity and that requires IQ. Expecting a simpler person to act like NOT-simpler person is a category mistake. What you appreciate is a lesser-known aspect of IQ e.g. classical music fans are likelier to be high IQ. This informs the signalling of a 9yo desperately trying to play Mozart. This emphasis on the appearance of substance to obtain superficial goals e.g. Ivy admission, is a key example of mala fides. Technical ability (as in those stupid ego competitions that should be banned) is an empty shell without a love and appreciation of the art. You do it because you love it, not because you might get Another Fucking Trophy and a new shiny line on your CV. FACTProfessional music auditions are held blind!

Point, the second: democracy in a multicultural society is impossible, too many warring factions that rentseek.

We have a kakistocracy. 

We are ‘led by shit’ or ‘led by the shit’ as in, the bottom section of society is loud and mob-rule enough to be the swing voters in elections and the likes of BBC Three celebrities are setting public topics. The populations of these people used to be naturally controlled by disease, including syphilis, poor nutrition and then war.

This inverted hierarchy makes improvements impossible to enforce because such aversion to the ‘politics of envy’ must come from the top-down.

This is like asking a vegan for their best rib recipe. If they knew, they wouldn’t tell you – because now they hate you.”

Want us to trust experts again? We need respectable ones, with good private conduct to boot and fine appreciation faculties, otherwise they’re parrots of the rich and powerful.

Adolescents with ASD show high rates of callous–unemotional traits but, unlike in the general population, these are not strongly associated with conduct problems.

Google “successful sociopaths”

 Individuals with ASD have difficulty recognising emotions2 (although see Jones et al3) and understanding the mental states of others, also known as theory of mind,4 both of which are thought to contribute to problems in social functioning. Executive dysfunction is also reported in individuals with ASD, and may underlie restrictive and repetitive symptoms. Impairments occur on tasks of planning, response selection/monitoring and inhibition of pre-potent response in children5and adolescents,6 as well as reduced cognitive flexibility.7 With regard to common coexisting behavioural problems, individuals with ASD are at higher risk of co-occurring psychopathology.810Individuals with ASD display increased antisocial and aggressive behaviour as children11 and oppositional defiant disorder as adolescents

^things common to psychopaths

The explanatory role of attention–deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms in the association between executive functioning and callous–unemotional traits is not well understood; controlling for ADHD has been reported to eradicate the relationship between executive functioning and delinquency in adolescents.

So there’s also a link from ADHD diagnosis and minors behaving like criminals.
Otherwise that’s a downright magical disappearing act. Jesus-tier.

 Individuals with ASD and those with callous–unemotional traits can sometimes present similarly, at least on a superficial level, yet this may be as a result of different aetiological processes. Despite phenotypic similarity, twin studies report largely independent genetic influences (an overlap of 0.43) on autistic and psychopathic traits

May?

And 0.43 is a moderately strong correlation!

43%!

Remember, this is ASD, not just Aspergers.

These studies suggest that some individuals with ASD also show callous–unemotional traits, perhaps as a result of a ‘double-hit’, with the emotional processes implicated in callous–unemotional being affected, in addition to the social cognitive difficulties typically present in individuals with ASD (for example theory of mind impairment). However, whether these findings hold in larger, population-based samples remains unexplored.

We test whether the strong association

wait wait wait
What happened to the blithe ‘largely independent’?

between these traits and conduct problems reported in the general population also applies to those with ASD, and describe additional psychiatric symptoms associated with callous–unemotional traits. Finally, we test whether a specific impairment in fear recognition is associated with callous–unemotional traits, as in non-ASD populations, and explore whether these traits are associated with difficulties in theory of mind and cognitive functioning.

Lower down
way down
Down to academic Hell.

There are two possible explanations for the remarkably high prevalence of callous–unemotional traits in our sample of adolescents with ASD.

Option 3 – you’re a filthy liar?

The dissociation of callous–unemotional from conduct problems in ASD may indicate a different cognitive underpinning. Alternatively, the sociocognitive difficulties associated with ASD may lead to reduced exposure to peers and prevent individuals from engaging in the more socialised and peer-related aspects of conduct-disordered behaviour.

Things that also apply to sociopaths for $100.

Clinicians have been concerned that some people with ASD appear to show high levels of callous–unemotional traits and the present study supports this clinical impression for a subset of individuals…. Parents, caregivers and other people working with individuals with ASD may require specific psychoeducation about these traits, which are often distressing to others but are not necessarily a predictor of antisocial behaviour.

Yeah, they don’t really love you, but it’s fine! They probably won’t attack you. (see bottom)
The clinicians are concerned but the parents should be happy to leave them alone around the knives.

Back to the high-functioning IQ bullshit

https://jneurodevdisorders.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1866-1955-5-14

Deficits in working memory are central to many theories of psychopathology, and are generally linked to frontal-lobe dysfunction. This article will review neuropsychological and (functional) brain imaging studies on working memory in adolescents with ASD. Although still disputed, it is concluded that within the working memory system specific problems of spatial working memory are often seen in adolescents with ASD. These problems increase when information is more complex and greater demands on working memory are made.

The most complex demand is an IQ test.

Connection? Widely known.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3050565/

Furthermore, the reliable relationship between WM capacity and fluid intelligence was exclusively supported by the number factor (r = .66), while the resolution factor made no reliable contribution (r = −.05). Thus, the relationship between WM capacity and standard measures of fluid intelligence is mediated by the number of representations that can be simultaneously maintained in WM rather than by the precision of those representations.

Trans. obsession (resolution) counts for nothing.

Fifty-four young adults with a clinical diagnosis of Asperger syndrome were assessed with Structured Clinical Interview for DSM-IV Axis II disorders to evaluate the presence of a concomitant personality disorder and completed the Autism Spectrum Quotient to measure level of autistic features. Autism spectrum diagnosis was confirmed by Diagnostic Interview for Social and Communication Disorders with a collateral informant. Approximately half of the study group fulfilled criteria for a personality disorder, all belonging to cluster A or C.

The murder of a teenage girl by a fellow care home resident obsessed by necrophilia could have been prevented, an inquiry has found.

Yes, direct infusions of lead are very preventative.

Melissa Mathieson, 18, was strangled by Jason Conroy in 2014 at Alexandra House in Bristol, a home supporting people with autistic spectrum disorder.

Conroy, who once tried to strangle a teacher so he could abuse her, planned to drag the teenager’s body back to his room and have sex with her.

He had also attempted to kill his mother by putting a duvet over her head for the same reason.

That’s three victims attempted minimum.

Murderers are crazy and water is wet.

new study in the journal Aggression and Violent Behavior will likely fuel the debate even more. It found some mass murderers and serial killers have something in common: autism and head injury. Like Lanza, other killers had an inability to connect socially, spoke in flat monotones, and had emotionless features.

Researchers call it the first review of published accounts of what causes people to commit mass murder. They said: “Our findings tentatively indicate that these extreme forms of violence may be a result of a highly complex interaction of biological, psychological and sociological factors and that, potentially, a significant proportion of mass or serial killers may have had neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism spectrum disorder or head injury.”

Since you can’t rehab these people, where is the hangman?
The necrophilia man will be released. Before his 30th birthday.

The director of the United Kingdom’s National Autistic Society’s Centre for Autism reacted to the study with caution. “We would urge people not to jump to conclusions about people with autism and to make judgements about a whole section of society,”

because we want to keep the gravy train a-chugging and we’re completely objective.

Nonetheless, “the findings were surprising,” researcher Allely, who holds a PhD in psychology, said in a phone interview. “There was a higher percentage of autism [among serial killers] than in the general population.”

Maybe don’t blame the meds just yet.

The research examined a population of 239 killers who had murdered at least three people since 1985, when there was a dramatic increase in the recognition of autism. Of that number, 133 of the mass killers did not appear to suffer from any neurological disorder, but a “significant proportion” did: 28 percent had “definite, highly probable or possible” autism, while 21 percent had sustained a “definite or suspected head injury.” 

28% is well above the required level of significance.

The irrationality of this paper merits inclusion alone.

How much is it a factor? BUT It isn’t real BUT it could be BUT it is.

Data!

There are 73 mass shooting events but there are two events where there is a pair of shooters which meant that 75 mass shooter cases were investigated. This exercise tentatively suggests evidence of ASD in six of 75 included cases (8%) which is about eight times higher when compared to the prevalence of ASD found in the general population worldwide (motherjones.com). The 8% figure for individuals with ASD involved mass killings is a conservative estimate. In addition to the six cases which provide the 8% figure, there were 16 other cases with some indication of ASD. Crucially, ASD may influence, but does not cause, an individual to commit extreme violent acts such as a mass shooting episode.

Influence without a cause people.

That makes complete sense.

I am sold with buttons on.

It’s a risk, but don’t be worried.

There’s a built-in excuse that they’re not really stalking you because you’re their “obsessive interest”, don’t be concerned, women.

He didn’t realize when he should not bring up his interest in murder. He might fall into the category of the “incompetent suitor” on the Stalking Risk Profile assessment guide12 – usually harmless but causing genuine concern and requiring limit setting. Legal consequences could follow if the behaviors persist. When given feedback these individuals may be confused, feel frustrated, hurt, or remorseful. Their genuine social naïveté may be apparent to evaluators. In this case the student received ongoing psycho-education and coaching about proper conduct so as to minimize the risk of impulsive outbursts if rebuffed and frustrated, and to reduce the likelihood of others reacting negatively. His progress and conduct continued to be appropriately monitored. A comprehensive risk assessment and explanation to campus officials avoided his being perceived and treated as a potential homicidal stalker.

As a woman, fuck no.

I’m not responsible for some random’s sexual entitlement.

If only we had a technical term for this acknowledged with a link to Aspergers cases.

http://article.scholarena.co/A-Conceptual-Analysis-of-Individuals-with-an-Autism.pdf

Homicidal ideation is that term.

“They made the decision to use violence as a means of resolving their issues”

It goes on to discuss premeditation and planning. Nothing like a psychopath, clearly.

If only we had a study

http://journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/0306624X15612719?journalCode=ijoe

Five cases of young Italian men with Asperger syndrome and recurrent and extremely violent femicide fantasies are presented. While there is no direct correlation between autism spectrum conditions and violence, as other humans, persons with an autistic condition are capable of committing crimes, including homicide. All five had in common a number of characteristics and behaviors felt to be pathoplastic: All had been bullied, all had been romantically rejected, all were long-standing First Person Shooter (FPS) game players, and all were avid violent pornography consumers.

Wow it’s like the average MGTOW or MRA forum.
I need a study on that.

Because the adequate, mature response to No is murder and necrophilia.
These people are the reason feminists still hold sway over the population.
If they disappeared, there’d be nothing to oppose. People who see you as subhuman because they want to fuck you? Probably not firing on all cylinders themselves.
Psychology is dark and if you disagree and haven’t read enough.

Not respecting the humanity of the person saying No – proves them correct to reject you (you’re unsuitable) and gives First World Feminism something to point at. Congratulations, you’re stupid on multiple levels.

Bitchier than gay men.

Are male narcissists more likely to be misogynistic?study suggests that heterosexual narcissistic men tended to lash out more often at heterosexual women than any other group (including homosexual men and women). Dr. Keiller (2010), lead author of the study, writes:

The present study suggests that heterosexual men’s narcissism is linked to an adversarial and angry stance toward heterosexual women more than toward other groups. Although narcissists may want to maintain feelings of superiority and power over all people, narcissistic heterosexual men are particularly invested in subordinating heterosexual women.

Of course they can’t cooperate, low empathy. They’re broken so they project it and act out. Projection is aggressive.

  • There is an established connection between misogynistic attitudes towards women and homicide against women (Campbell, 1981).

Duh?

Many male mass murderers have also been shown to have a history of domestic violence against women.

They’d call that training.

It is narcissistic to feel entitled to attention from others, including sexual attention. Stop being a whore.

It is narcissistic (specifically solipsistic) to assume your problem should be (other person’s) problem e.g. Women You Wanna Fuck.
This Venn is oddly irrational from the supposed High IQ overlords. They have no problem rejecting women they don’t want to fuck personally, and expect this is their solemn right to do so – but crudely, harshly and without comeuppance. Because female entitlement is the only problem?
The strangest aspect of these femicide rampages is how they believe it makes their ’cause’ appear worthy.

What cause?

Misogyny can be manifested in numerous ways, including social exclusionsex discriminationhostility,

androcentrismpatriarchymale privilege,

that line tough to define

belittling of women, violence against women, and sexual objectification.

Bolded is the stuff they can’t really deny. None of those are prosocial. All of those bolded are evil, as in, they do not occur in a healthy, high-trust society. You have no intellectual philosophy, there is no cause. You don’t even use scientific terms like hypergamy or philosophical solipsism correctly.

We know you’re worthless r-types. Fuck it or kill it or both, we knew. It’s your reason for existence, your raison d’être. How deranged must you be to possibly think that makes you look good? Cavemen were more civilized, we have forensic evidence. You’re not reconnecting with anything. Ancient men weren’t monsters, in sum. What, like women aren’t going to take even more precautions from anyone who vaguely blips on our creepdar? How do you think empathetic people, including normal women, work?

They’ll be more scared – they say on their forums, with the narc’s gleeful thought at another’s suffering.

….Will this result in less sex and a worse reputation or the reverse?

Nobody will ever respect you because you have never ever earned it.
There is no Man Card, you are not auto-worthy of respect because phallic symbol? Freud would’ve laughed you out of the room. It’s individual, it has nothing to do with sex. You earn respect, not your sex for you. That’s such a passive feminine way of looking at it too. More than feminine, effete, it’s perverted femininity. Like the gay pride people who humiliate themselves and still expect you’ll respect them after viewing the assless studded leather chaps in public.
What is going on over there, America? You used to be cool. Now you’re famous for these morons.

You choose to be grandiose and act like a loser (psychopaths are not cool IRL).
You’ll meet their fate.

Bible called it;

The LORD tests the righteous and the wicked, And the one who loves violence His soul hates.

For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap.

As I have seen, those who plow iniquity and sow trouble reap the same.

I guess you could call it karma too.

Coddling them is inappropriate, they know what they’re doing and enjoy hurting others, especially wider abstract society. They fully deserve all they get, in that case.
Outsiders get no sympathy.

‘Member hostility in that misogyny list?

https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/insight/201011/bad-karma-is-real

 The reason they do is that chronic hostility causes both a constriction of the arteries and more blood being pumped to the heart, causing small tears in the arteries. Cholesterol and fat then attach to those tears, which can ultimately cause heart attacks [1]. Chronic hostility also has been linked to long-term elevations in white blood cells, which has been clearly associated with heart disease [2].

In a fascinating study, researchers followed the health of a group of medical students for 25 years to see if their levels of angry hostility at the beginning of the study could predict their heart disease rates down the road [3]. Incredibly, those participants who were highest in angry hostility at the beginning were 5 times more likely than their laid-back counterparts to have heart disease 25 years later.

Social reciprocity outweighs any posturing dominance bullshit.
It’s almost like being selfish is stupid in a social species?

There’s far more evidence for male bias, isn’t there? As in, there is actually evidence, unlike gynocentrism, which clutches at straws with rhetoric and emotional appeal.

 

Fun IQ list

They never account for racial purity, so naturally that will alter the average if the natives are also lumped in with new citizens.

I say it’s fun because

Comparing countries is finer grain than race. Asians v. Nords.
Naturally, the widespread Asian academic fraud previously covered makes the uppermost numbers suspect.

Observe

some familiar names.

Can the superiority complex, America.

Wait, wait, wait.

Hang on.

Still going.

Maybe the high-IQ Asian waifu plan isn’t so smart.

You marry hookers, they’ll take all your money.

Which continent has the higher average IQ, Europe or Asia?

In American;

Which continent has less yellow in it?

American is simpler than English because –

Spain, my current location, is as smart as you. Diego are not renowned for being brainy.
You’d be helping the deported by sending them to Spain, from the US.

Education secret factor in divorce rates

I saw this mentioned again here

http://uk.businessinsider.com/type-of-marriage-end-in-divorce-eli-finkel-2017-10

and already knowing but yes, it’s true.

https://www.bls.gov/opub/mlr/2013/article/marriage-and-divorce-patterns-by-gender-race-and-educational-attainment.htm

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.

http://uk.businessinsider.com/why-your-iq-strongly-influences-your-success-at-work-2017-10

  • 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.
