On another place I post Ive been told that the Irish average IQ is about 93 or so. The main argument for this comes from Richard Lynn. Now when I do some research on this I cannot for the life of me find any real sources to verify or contradict this!
Can anybody help me out. In the name of the Irish people
Great Britain: Research by Richard Lynn discussed in Ciaran Benson, "Ireland's 'Low' IQ," pp. 222-23 in Russell Jacoby and Naomi Glauberman (eds.), The Bell Curve Debate (New York: Times Books, 1995).
nevr heard dat b4, i did hear 1 bout d blacks in nigeria r sumthin havin bout 40 lower IQ avg dan mst of d rst of d world..
That's because all the bright ones emigrated.
Isn't 90 pretty much the average IQ for humans in general? So it's nothing special if it's true.
Second thread today I've read where you say something negative about Blacks.
Also on a thread about IQ I'd avoid getting your 13 year old sister to type for you. She seems to think you do it the same way her mates text her.
There is an argument that the Irish IQ is lower by about 10 point generally as at some deep sub conscious level we all think in only Irish (the language of our ancestors) and as a consequence of speaking and thinking in English, part of our brain power is consumed doing the "translations"
Btw I think the Bell curve is a awful piece of research with some really dodgy methodology and even worse analysis.
dear christ. Close your boards.ie account please, do us a favour ?
I thought 100 was the average by definition. I could be wrong though.
yawn, dis is taken from richard lynn site
taken from www.rlynn.co.uk
u cant call me a racist for quotin facts
~I'd be interested to know who put forth that argument. I knew a Dutch guy living here so long he said he was translating more when speaking in Dutch. Surely that would imply the brain doesn't mind which language it thinks in once it's used to it.
Surely the english used by English people's ancestors would be very different to the english spoken today.
Well I think it's something like 80% have an IQ between 90 and 110.
Anything below 70 and you're looking at mental retardation though.
They are not facts. They are his interpretations of his woeful research.
dats jus u sayin its woeful, sure ders lots of ppl who agre wit him
