Is South Africa’s unhappiness linked to low IQ?
IQ tests are modern day indicators to the mental and physical health of a country. This IQ map should horrify South Africans into positive action. Of course, it won’t (which is part of the problem but not the topic today).
It’s unsurprising that South Africa is abused and too often backwards whereas Nordic countries are stable and China is growing in power. I’m betting the lower the national IQ average, the younger you will die.
There are exceptions to stereotypes but, for the most part, the worse the IQ average, the more screwed up a country is likely to be.
Unfortunately, cleverer politicians will abuse the weakness of their followers rather than give them better nutrition and education (so as to raise their IQ). Those with bad IQ don’t realise how they’re being manipulated by primal emotions (such as hate) so vote for their abusers again and again.
For months, i’ve been seeking to regain my own health, in body and wisdom, and catch up on some of what sank whilst i swum in political putridness. When i fully surface, i want to write detailed articles on a wider range of topics (such as IQ). My goal, as it has been in different ways, is to play my very small part in waking people up from stupidity (especially bias) to reality.
Take this simple test – http://free-iqtest.net. There are only 20 questions i.e. it won’t take long. Don’t post your result on Facebook. The goal isn’t to compare, a useless endeavour as the smartest egos will post whereas those with lower scores will not. This is a test for yourself.
The topic is the state of South Africa where one research result finds the average IQ at a disappointing 77. What are we going to do to make our fellow citizens smarter and, consequently, healthier and happier? An educated community benefits all of us. It’s worth thinking about!
