An already existing prejudice against a people is probably going to overrule all other logic and facts.

For the folks who live in some of the most inhospitable places on the planet, their IQs are higher in an understanding of nature, how to survive the elements, how to hunt, etc.

Not really, those are the same country's who need people to fly over and dig water wells for them, give them medication, clothing, seeds and teach them the basics of farming so they can feed themselves!


Non of which have anything to do with 'innate intelligence'. Training and eduction, of which these countries lack, is required even for the most intelligent of people.

Can you find drinkable water in a desert? Tan hides? Or milk a goat? Of course not untill you been taught how.

I would imagine their own people should be able to teach these things amongst themselves like most nations or do you want to appoint dedicated world teachers what God put here to be going around teaching people stuff?

You would imagine? Their 'own' people? Most nations?

Do you imagine the whole world is just like your little patch? Really?

Memorizing facts and learning how to express them when told to does not have much to do with general intelligence. If anything, outside of the context of taking tests, this skill is almost meaningless.

The central argument is that clear differences in the average intelligence of nations (national IQ) explain a main part of the national differences in living conditions measured by various indexes. Key Words: Wellbeing indexes; Differences in living conditions; National IQ. Newsweek's list ranking the best countries in the world represents the latest attempt to measure national differences in living conditions by an index combining several indicators, but it should be noted that it is not the only one of its kind. There are at least three other indexes constructed for the same purpose:

UNDP's Human Development Index (HDI),

the Legatum Prosperity Index,

and Richard Lynn and Tatu Vanhanen's index of the Quality of Human Conditions (QHC).

Let us start by describing these indexes and exploring their covariation.

I didn't say IQ tests were rejected. I was implying that Lynn's (and others) application and result are what is rejected.

Rubbish!

No Scientist has any reason to suspect IQ is the same in every country on this planet and there are countless studies which show that this is so regardless of Lynn's studies.

There's only two possibilities for IQ being drastically different between countries.

1) There's a racial factor.
2) There's environmental factors.

Of those two... environment is the accepted cause and race is rejected... by science.

Thats good, so African Americans and European Americans must score the same as they are both in the same environment and even same school and classroom?

Nope the biggest factor is inbreeding. High rate of birth defects along with lower IQ.

But the majority of them are not. White kids in poverty score lower on IQ tests also.

The paper you linked shows a greater difference between rural and suburban than between in-bred and out-bred.

Nope, inbred lower IQ than not inbred, all the time.
Learn to read a study. The only purpose of the study was to rate the effect of inbreeding, rural vs nonrural has nothing to do with it. Rural is alwyas at a different level than non rural, when add inbreeding both scale the same.

I have been tested in school and in the military and scored in the upper 7%, that being said, I find that IQ tests do not actually test intelligence but rather retention of information the person has been exposed to.


That's called crystallized intelligence. Fluid intelligence is more like aptitude, it's supposed to test innate capabilities.

Saying IQ has any real validity is like saying doing a sudoku will keep you mentally healthy.

It's testing for "g" and "g" does not seem to equate to intelligence in the way I understand it.
