IQ by Country

submit to reddit

According to these studies it is very clear that human races differ not only in physical aspect but in intelligence also. It is also clear that IQ is something attributed to people by their genes and it can not be altered through culture or education. Asians and white Caucasians are the smartest human races on earth. From the following chart it is also very clear that IQ has decreased in Europe, America and all white nations of the world from 2002 to 2006 as the number of non-white immigrants, particularly Arabs and Africans get higher and higher. The more migrants we receive, the lower our IQs per nation are going to be as they will be included in the tests so instead of having for example a country of 10 million Europeans with an IQ of 105, you have 8 million Europeans with 105 plus 2 million non-European migrants with an average of 80, then you add them together and divide the number and voilla! A lower national IQ. It won’t be long until you see Europe with yellow colors on the above map, given the number of migrants we receive every year.

IQ isn’t something you learn in school. You are born with it, you die with it. You can’t become Einstein or Tesla by studying. Culture and education are irrelevant to IQ. Geniuses are born geniuses, they don’t become geniuses by reading books, going to school, etc. In response to the egalitarians, there is no one stopping Africans from building schools in their own nations, nor is it the duty of the white people to build schools for them. No one ever gave anything to Europeans for free. So why Africans should ever receive something from Europeans? And why would anyone expect Europe or the US to give something to Africa? Why doesn’t Asia help Africa? They are much richer and technologically advanced than Europeans. Most of the stuff is made in China, Taiwan or Korea these days… we don’t need to be the intermediaries who buy products from China, then give to Africans. Let the Chinese directly give to Africans.

And while we’re at it, speaking about Korea, for total proof that IQ has nothing to do with culture, education and social aspects, the final total irrefutable proof is Korea. Both South Korea and North Korea have the exact same 106 IQs. They are the same nation, same ethnic group, same race of people, same IQ, yet totally different societies. North Korea is a closed communist society, isolated from the rest of the world, no access to Western culture whatsoever, no movies, no books, no computer games, they are entirely Korean. Their society is also based on constant fear of the communist oppressive authorities who torture and kill them as soon as they make a mistake. They are also malnutritioned and poorly fed which should affect brain development.

Almost zero outside influence in North Korea, yet they somehow “magically” have the same IQ with South Korea which is a capitalist democratic state, in contact with the entire planet, huge access to foreign culture, movies, music, anything, zero poverty, one of the richest countries on Earth, high life expectancy, making Samsung and LG electronics for the entire planet along with Hyundai and Kia cars. That’s how totally different the two Koreas are yet they have the same IQs. Why? Because both communist and democratic Koreas have chosen to ban any type of immigration. There are no Africans or Arabs in the two Koreas. So the IQs you have there are purely Korean IQs, with no foreign IQs tainting the overall national tests.

Remember that in countries such as Australia for example, the total Australian 98 IQ includes the Aboriginal IQ which is somewhere at 62. The human IQ is mostly influenced by the average cranial capacity. Asians (Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, not including Arabs, Indians) have an average 1380-1420 cubic centimeters cranial capacity, Europeans have an average 1350-1399, black African average size is 1250-1299, average black Aboriginal found in Australia 1200-1249. Now Iceland is almost entirely 100% white, among the few countries of the planet at almost 100% homogeneous white European, yet it still gets beaten by Asian countries, proving that whites are in fact inferior to Asians. So yes we seem to be inferior to East mongoloid Asians yet we shouldn’t go around trying to mix with them just to increase our own intelligence in our kids like Africans are trying to do with us. Each with its own uniqueness. Besides children of mixed race are having enormous difficulties later in life if they ever try to find a donor organ such as a kidney, a heart or anything else, none is compatible to them, not a European organ, not a African nor a Asian organ. This should also deter parents from making mixed children.

The information you find in this article should make perfect sense to anyone with an IQ of 90+. However it won’t because IQ isn’t all there is to humanity. Personal ideological beliefs have nothing to do with the IQ. You can have an IQ of 120 and still be a liberal social justice warrior!

    This is ridiculous, but in any case, if Argentina has an average 93 and Ireland 92, there’s a small problem with the colors in that map.
    Even if intelligence would differ as much as a per human type (or race if you prefer) the differences inside every society are much bigger among individuals. A genius child in Ethiopia could still be our best promise as humans. That’s why the schools are important.

      Actually, the research says within families (and this would include twins) IQ varies only about 10 points. It’s been proven true with my family. Also – more than 10 points apart and people have difficulty understanding each others reasoning and behavior.

    A sense some knee jerk and emotional reactions from people here. The situation is probably more complicated then either side here is ready to admit.However with that said, consider this,individuals with Down Syndrome have a lower IQ than the average human, do you really think that at some point that same individual will have an IQ of 180 if we put them through school?

    IQ’s may fluctuate, but that does not mean that there is not a real cap on one’s IQ.

    The reaction of course will be: “but IQ is not everything” to this i readily agree, however while not every person with a high IQ is intelligent, no intelligent person has ever had a low IQ.

    You people know nothing of what you are talking about. All you know are the lies the media vomits up.

    We have had over 100 years of testing IQ’s. 70% of the IQ is based on genetics, while the other 30% is environment.

    In other words, if a child from Africa with an IQ of 65, is brought to America with private schools, the best you expect is an IQ of about 85.

    Why do you think that ALL western (ie: white nations) have prospered, while all the dark skinned nations are cesspools?

    Liberals are going to get what they deserve … a 3rd world hell-whole of crime,poverty, and disease.

      Remember also that the 85 iq in afroamericans is due to 25% mix with caucasians, otherwise with education it will only be around 75%, I’m Mexican, I’m also the result of a mix of Scotish, French, Spanish and certainly amerindians, and I’ve observed that in every generation the human capacity in my family tree goes down as we’ve mixed with amerindians, from professions like medic, writers now we go down to simpler careers and this is something serious, since EU and U.S.A. are going to deal with this very same problem quite soon, rather than east Asians whom doesn’t receive waves of immigrants and as a result, their iq won’t be lost, I’m afraid of this but unless a more strict, or as some call racist society erupts from white countries this will go backwards in technological achievements terms. I’m not a racist but is impossible not to see this.

        They enslaved Africans.

        They invaded India (richest country during early 1700s) and looted them.

        China isolated itself until Europeans traded tea with China.

        They lost money, they then had an idea.

        They made India produce opium, sold the opium to China, and made so much money out of it.

        China became addicted to the illegal drug; Opium. Tried to wage wars and lost.

        Opium Wars – 1800s. Traded until early 1900s. Even during World War 1.

      Amen Ivan!

      Even with the jew infiltration into the West’s education system, they have not been able to completely dumb us down. And even with the outrageous number of darker races dragging our overall IQ levels down, we’re still showing fairly well.

      I knew of a school in Danville Virginia, whilst growing, up that was 100% white and Christian and it was able to maintain that status because they were private and did not accept any ZOG funding. Their average IQ level was well above 110 each year.

      The falling level of IQ in the West is directly related to the growing non-White population.

      They don’t all work in factories.

      And they do have the highest IQ. Hong Kong is richer than China per capita, that’s why it became the highest IQ average per person.

      Look at which countries were the richest in the 1500s-1700s – India and China.

      Until the Opium Wars where foreign countries sold Opium to China, and made a lot of money out of it while China sufferred. That’s why China is having lower jobs, they had more discoveries before 1700s than any other country, blast furnace, gun powder, compass, coal refining, paper printing, farming before anyone else etc. If you look at Japan, they are developing much technology now – Fuji, SONY. They designed/made PS3 as well as PS3 games and much more games for the American Market. The Americans also dominated 20th century technology.

Instead only the 5th larger economy in Latin America behind, Mexico (75% mixed, 15% Caucasian, 10% others) Brazil (roughly 50/50 between Africans and Caucasians) Colombia and Chile. In fact, Brazil is among the fastest growing economies in the world faster than any other European nation and the United States.

    Well there is no final scientific proof (I did
    three different IQ tests in my 20s and they all differed by at least 10 points, so there´s that) –
    but there is of course also cultural
    difference and political correctness which would
    dictate that everyone had an IQ of 100…
    I would say this stats is probably the result of white noise average error margins and tells us exactly nuzzins.

    I laughed, because it’s so obvious. They are given everything. You do research and Europe only sent 45,000 people to Africa, and Africa is still one of the richest countries in the world for minerals and resources. Because they’re too stupid to have figured out how to mine them. Furthermore, black americans on average have an IQ of 85, whilst white ones hold 100. People keep making excuse after excuse, but the truth is, a dog isn’t a dog, and a person isn’t a person.

    Asians? Be more specific for god’s sake. Asia extends from Japan to Russia to India and to Turkey. The appropriate term to describe the ethnic group in Asia with a high iq would be ‘East Asians’ or ‘Northeast Asians’. This data is accurate but the reliability of the iq test is highly questionable.

    Wow I cant believe the stupid statements posted, haha its funny how the racists talk about whites being brighter but fail to talk much about east asians kicking our ass.
    Culture is what influences intelligence. East asian culture is all about working hard and that shows in the stats. Countrys like USA are dumming down because the educated are having less babys while the simple people are breeding like rabits. People easy manipluated are told to create big familys to keep there god happy while people with good jobs and high intelligence are delaying familys because they are too busy. The term LCD kids (parents having kids so they can get a baby bonus the a TV0 is very scary.

    To those who say that IQ depends on environmental factors, why don’t you try your hypothesis on a person with down syndrome? Polish a turd, it’s still a motherf*cking turd. You are born with the default, unchangeable hardware called a brain. No matter how upgraded the software, if the hardware is shit, the software will be laggy too. You can shove a ton of knowledge and know-how into an Australian Aborigine, but their brain can’t even begin to process the information. The only smart Abo is on the 50 dollar note. I have no idea how on earth East Asians became so smart but all genetic variations comes from mutation, most likely the East Asians just had a chance mutation tens of thousands of years ago which spread throughout the population. Jews are the smartest race in the world with 2 points higher average than East Asians, although they only number at max 20 million.

    jobjed are you serious!! first of all down syndrome is a genitic error in the makeup of the person aka sickness, they can and do have 2 parents with high intelligence but means nothing because something has gone wrong in there prebirth development. Studies have constantly proved that a persons intellectual development is 50% enviroment 50% genitics so cultures with better work ethics will subject there brain to more learning hence higher IQ in asia. The stats for international IQ are based per capita so jews are not at the top there are some small countrys close to the top one being nz. Dont forget too we white people are proven to be genetic mutations from our darker coloured skined distant cousins.

    Dear all,
    I’m glad to tell you that I am fond of testing my IQ once in a while. You know why? Because, I get pleasing results which ranges from 105 to 194!!! I challenge most of you!! But what makes the story sad is that I sometimes think of using my skills to migrate to a country where I could find better facilities. I am sure that people who have already done such decisions now contribute to IQ level of richer countries. Please have a look to find out where do the present professors of American and European nations are originally from. Also please do not forget that countries like China, Japan and Korea contribute to about one forth of the world population. This means that a white European is number two in four which not a bad result but close to average and just only add 15% to Indians-not 30% for their lack of facilities, you will see that European are no where. Please do not forget that Chinese can at least increase their IQ by another 10% by enhancing their facilities. I am sure that will make every white European feel bad when talking to an average Chinese in coming future.

    People getting awfully emotional about scientific research. If you want to deny the results of a scientific experiment simply because you don’t like the results, that’s your business. For me, the truth is the truth, unpleasant or not. I would, however wish to know the specifics concerning how these results were compiled. For example, whether or not ravens matrices was used for testing, since it’s the only test I’m aware of which does not test accumulated knowledge, but native intelligence.

      Okay Auntie – there are also the ones who claim that “emotional intelligence” should be considered,
      I guess they assume this tobe some more female sort of logic that can exist without truths and hard facts – but it is much worse.

      My opinion is that we are almost unable of anything BUT emotional “intelligence”, 95 % of our decisions are gut decisions with shit to follow.

      The only thing we really have in way of intelligence rather than emotions is the little bit of language-generated ratio and I remain unconvinced
      that this tiny plant can be proven to even exist
      without QUITE SOME “learned” content – in a word,
      a program is available but without data it will
      not show results – this is a dilemma.

      It also means that knowledge IS a part of intelligence and will remain exactly that.

      Also many years ago or more another push
      of humanity went from Africa into Europe only
      to discover that an earlier tribe of African Homos
      had arrived long before them, the Neanderthals.

      The Neanderthals may have been shaggy but they were not stupid, they could even interbreed with the new Sapies from Africa (sounds almost modern, eh ?) –
      at least with the more kinkily sexual ones.

      So does this (a fate the Asian clearly evaded somehow) make is into simple-minded shaggy ones basically maybe and should we give up the fight
      to some slanteyes whom we were able to dominate so easily for hundreds of years ? Ha !
      All is not lost ! Asians may be emotionally inept.

    I think some people make decisions that way, others begin with an emotional investment in reaching a certain conclusion, then set about creating a rationale for it, and still others who actually employ logic.

    We haven’t come up with a way of measuring emotional intelligence. I don’t recall the results saying anything about rating the value of humans, just intelligence. All these reactions I have read are attaching the value themselves. If you don’t think intelligence is the be all and end all of human existence, then what’s the problem? Why such an emotional response?

    You either get an emotionally originated response from a human or none at all – “some people make decisions that way, others begin with an emotional investment in reaching a certain conclusion” – that sounds like you are a believer in the religious concept of “free will”, a concept as stark as “the soul”.

    Luckily, there is no free will nor soul so we can relax. There are emotions and a bit of unneeded thinking space in SOME brains, there is accumulated data from thousands of years of language (also in script) – if a primate bothers to read at all and has an exceptional IQ (for a primate, that would be about 30 points *at least* above average primates). Below that you will find it hard to do “visionary thinking” or even sound planning, and you will find that people generally do not have plans as they are unable to distinguish worthy from nonsensical info and cannot combine all the facts to reach a conclusion – that is left for the “chess masters” who are able to combine many facts and often intuitively reach a conclusion –
    lesser brains cannot reach such heights though there is no reason to assume the IQ differences is merely genetic – that makes it so complicated.

    Anyway without emotional investment nothing will be thought through as the motivation is lacking.
    Geniuses sometimes have to be psychos to be able to walk their path as being a “normal human” would not allow that at all.

    You are the one unwittingly taking an emotional approach – then again, what else can you do.
    I am starting to lose the motivation (emotional :
    morning tea, sun shining, got to walk the dog ;)
    Musing how I almost know it all and still I cannot change anything – maybe I could if I had gotten into politics at an earlier age but I doubt even that.

    Firstly, yes, emotions are fuel, the body is the vehicle, and the intelligence must do the steering. What that has to do with our discussion, I don’t know. My words “such an emotional response” were an attempt to comment on the gauge or how fervent the emotional responses were. It was not meant to convey the concept that emotion should not be present whatsoever.

    However that wasn’t the point of my statement “some people begin with an emotional investment in reaching a certain conclusion”. That was intended to illustrate the fundamental difference between actual logical thought, and rationalization. Rationalization begins with an emotional need for a certain thing to be true, then employs the intellect to create a rationale for why that thing is true. That isn’t thought, it’s creating an alibi.

    Intelligence is merely a tool. The better the tool is, the more effectively it can do its work.

    I won’t address your statements on freewill because I don’t see a point to it.

    A very interesting article which begs the question of whether there should be a minimum intelligence limit to become a U.N. member?

    • Hey dude says:

      Hi Zharkov, I disagree. It wouldn’t be fair to exclude nations of “subnormal” intellects. I am a believer in democracy – it can’t benefit everyone when not everyone is voting. Do you think that, were these “subnormal” countries excluded, their peers would abandon their egoistic commitment to their own National Interest and assume the role of benevolent parents? No – the world only works when parties look after themselves dude. And to look after yourself you need to take part.
      Also, voting makes people happy; as a supporter of maximum happiness I am willing to sacrifice some government efficiency if it makes my country happy. It would be similar at a level of nations – countries shouldn’t be excluded – they’d become alienated, unhappy, have less to lose and hence the UN would have less influence over them, they would become unruly, and vest their egoistic nature in a more damaging form – imperial expansion, invading others countries.
      And thirdly, I cite the Corruption Perceptions Index, UN World Happiness Report, the Democracy Index, and Wikipedia when I say that the happiest, richest, least corrupt countries are the most democratic. China may have a government of technocrats and experts but the communist party isn’t held to account by full democracy – that’s why this country, so meritocratic, is also corrupt. Democracy is the best that we’ve got, you need to involve all concerned parties to be democratic – I rest my case.

      Of other contributors, I’ve read a couple of unkind comments about Africans on this forum. Don’t pannick Skinheads, we don’t need to use Fascism to put everyone in their right places in society – Capitalism ensures the right people get into the right jobs much more efficiently. And there is no need to gawp at the difference between the mean iq of one’s own race and another – just because “sirika” happens to be smarter than the average African doesn’t mean s/he should feel so full of himself that he can mock Africans – he can take no credit for himself having a higher IQ; he didn’t earn it. And it’s not an African’s “fault” for being African. Indeed, every race has something to offer the world – the Japanese logic and hard work, Indians Buddhism and high civilisation at times, and Africans their music and their large penises. I bet you didn’t see that coming.

    As my father (who was professor neurology) once told me: the brain is not like a muscle you can train. Meaning: you won’t get smarter by studying alot, you will only acquire more information. Just like a computer with a small processor won’t become ‘smarter’/more powerful by making it run overtime. What lacks in this ranking sadly is standard deviation (the ‘sigma’ of the Bell curve): in itself equally important as average. Indians for examle have a low average but a high sigma, meaning there are some very smart people there. East Asians have a high average but low sigma, meaning most people are rather smart but few are extrordinarily smart. Whites have an intermediate average but a high sigma which explains why almost all scientific and technological breakthroughs were the work of whites (and especially ashkenazi jews); but also explains the high prevalence of low IQ whites. Blacks have a low average and low sigma. This is what careful study of old data (before this entire topic became off-limits for mainstream science) as well as the state of the world have learnt me.
