Most German people I've met online have been rather intelligent overall.

Least? Difficult question. Some of the Italians on this forum are prone to getting angry and irrational even when that is - clearly - only going to do further harm to the reputation of 'southerns' around these e-parts, so that must count for something.

Just saying.

It depends on how you define intelligence I am sure plenty of Italians have great emotional intelligence the ones I have met do they also have a great tendency towards the Art and drama. Meanwhile if you go to some parts of Northern Europe you will get less emotional intelligence and more of an introverted analytical intelligence a lot of INTP's and INJT's. This is actually the best combo for creating good geniuses because instead of using and devoting all their time to emotional concerns they are grounded with a certain self awareness of their environment and themselves while the emotional person tends to be ignorant of the human condition. The deeper and more profound thinkers come from the North the more creative and artsy thinkers come from the South. As far as smarts are concerned I would put the Germans in front of the English that is for sure.

The trouble is that whilst the Germans have produced a whole load of philosophers, they have produced few practical thinkers. It certainly takes intelligence to be a philosopher, but a rather myopic and impractcal intelligence.

Yes and this is true and we do have the British to thank for their great deal of pragmatic behavior. And the Germans have produced plenty of rational people such as Karl Benz, Rudolf Diesel, Werner Von Braun. If you don't have the first two then you don't have a major vehicle that drives your industry and well for the last one then their is no ballistic missile technology and then no space mission for America.

The problem with German intelligence - and they are intelligent - is that they don't realise when they've gone too far, into the realms of ridiculous impracticality. Hitler being a prime example. They are prone to extremism in all its forms. The major English fault is the exact opposite, never allowing themselves to get passionate about something.

I do have to agree with this a bit. Well a lot of it with Germans has to do with a perfectionist mentality which tries to over compensate because they feel like they have done their best. The English on the other hand are quite dry about their approach to things practical they almost do it in a blasé way.

There's a very telling phrase in England, "We'll muddle through somehow." That's how we fought WW2, lurching from one makeshift solution to another, and that's how we have achieved our greatest accomplishments, or least we like to think so.

Taking into account the wealthness of the nations (when most are almost starving they're not into cultiving their intelligence) I guess Italy or Spain. For example, let's talk about Picasso, OK, he was the son of a Fine Arts professor but I doubt his material conditions had been the same of English or French colleagues (moreover, a lot more of them). Or let's talk about Beatles and the Stones, indeed they were English, but, how many low class Spaniards like Beatles were studied in Art Schools? First of all, there was here not an equivalent concept for the popular masses(or it was oriented just to though labours), and second, even if they had exist, how many parents had been resist the natural impulse of slapping son in the face just at knowing that artsy inclination? :D

Ps. So, NorthWestern boys and girls, keep a cool head, you're not so special (at least by European standards).:coffee:

Of course the North is going to be biased towards its level of intelligence and the South is going to be biased towards there and we are both right. The difference is how people present their intelligence Southerners are inclined to be more in your face and obnoxious about things while Northerners are inclined to be laid back and introverted about how they present themselves. Its all a matter of presentation and sometimes having an obnoxious emotionally based person in your face is not everyone's cup of tea.

Indeed that's right. Here intelligence is more asociated with vanity that in Northern Europe where is more oriented to colectivity progress. For example, I dont understand all the Open Source movement, or, in general, it's mind blowing how Northerners are kind of sharing their knowledge around Internet.

Yes there are many smart people from the Balkans and some very notable people from the area in general but the average Eastern European I have was a meat head nothing against them they just liked to drink, party, and have a good time. There is nothing wrong with that they just were not the brightest bulbs when it came to school.

Well its just different listening to people who are objectively based instead of subjectively based. Those who depend on communicating their intelligence while being an emotional wreck tend to be a lot harder to listen to even if what they are saying is good. Good tone and body language definitely make it much easier to take in what an individual is saying and when they are not projecting their own intelligence in an objective manner.

Indeed EasternEuropeans has a way of living not much compatible with intelectual work. I guess they're still recovering (by passing a good time) with Com system fall, war, etc...and the brutal adoption of Capitalist system. THat's so evident that takes just a inet forum like this to realize on.

On job interviews I used to pass a hard time trying not to look like a charlatan.

Just a non-trivial anecdote which tells a lot: I remember a commercial of an enhanced milk presented by a supposedly nutrition scientific: he talked on Nordic accent. For me that's plain outrageus, for illiterated masses (main target of TV commercials) just an irrelevant casual fact.

Ive always wondered if those things are credible or what? The last time I took an IQ test it was when i was about 16 and the result was like 113 or 117... and I was told that was average but I felt it was low.. my deskmates IQ was like over 130.. yeah she was a genius. We had one person in the class whose IQ was under 100...

As Ive understood then your IQ may also depend on thee time of the day... at some points you may be more alert than on others and etc... and of course if my mood is crap I will want to resist doing certain things more.. like maths. At the time my maths part was sevearly under average... and it has probably gotten worse since then


Ive also heard that those IQ standards change all the time since people are exposed to more and more information. The average IQ a hundred times ago is about the same as what we consider "retardation" these days...

And about the Japanese. I dont know. Its hard to meet one who would actually be good at something or actually know something. Not only arent most of them unable to learn a second language properly, they also have no ideas about European or their own Japanese history or culture. They appear quite organized, but they are actually quite messy and seem to fail at most things. (yeah lots of mean blabber but Im a Japanologist and meet Japanese people almost on a daily basis)

Please, define "intelligent" first. There are different types of intelligence. For example, no Swede is going to survive in the jungle, no matter how much he gets on the MENSA test, while the "inferior" pygmy will. The opposite is also true. See, everything is relative.

Dicipline will most likely will result to success but we know a whole lot of undiciplined geniouses that were selfdistructive and total failiours in their personal achievments.
I personally plaid poker for a living without working a single day for about ten years straight. Not much school in life but i have come across Phd graduates that looked realy dumb to me. No joke.

I can give infinite examples of deferent smarts that will put some northern everage europeans to shame. Judging only from some albanian friends i have goten to know in the western europe in my teenage years living there.

On average I would say nordic people (norwegians, swedes, danes) not because they are extraordinarily gifted but because they have acces to a better social security system, better healthcare services, better schooling system. When you're healthy and bellyful you take greater interest in education. :)

I would mention Russia too simply because they had and still have one of the best scientists in all possible fields. No nordic or western country can match Russia's brain resource.

Kurt
10-25-2011, 08:38 PM
The Albanians i know have a chicken brain.One needs to only look at albanian history to realise that the odds of surviving as ethnicity and culture were astronomicaly stacked up against.
And to come up with two independent own countries in 21 century in the middle of europe, its not e miracle, nor fate, its only due to the sumpreme intelligence that alabanians do posses just to have survive, let alone having two countries.
Obviously you're to dumb to think a little deeper then judging a whole ethnicity based on couple people you known.

One needs to only look at albanian history to realise that the odds of surviving as ethnicity and culture were astronomicaly stacked up against.
And to come up with two independent own countries in 21 century in the middle of europe, its not e miracle, nor fate, its only due to the sumpreme intelligence that alabanians do posses just to have survive, let alone having two countries.
Obviously you're to dumb to think a little deeper then judging a whole ethnicity based on couple people you known.

Take it easy, i was ironic. I didn't say "Albanians in general are stupids", it was referred to some ones that i personally know. Why are you now saying that i'm a dumb?? Then again, how can you judge someone you don't know? (That's the "teaching" you were trying to give me). As you can see, i don't get angry if someone says unpolite things to me, so you should learn something more. You say that i'm dumb to judge but you're the first who judge somebody else. Be a bit humble, so i could be probably interested in what you say.

We can find 80% of Nobel Prize winners in a synagogue.

Its a little far-fetched to assume that that Nobel Prizes are thus given out solely on the basis of merit then, I should think. I mean, if 80 percent of Nobel Prize winners were from some relatively innocuous group, but Jews? Its safe to say that Jews symbolize All That is Good to much of the Western ruling elite, and Nobel Prizes have been used by the elite in order to confer celebrity status upon their servitors in many instances. I think there may be some selection bias working in the favor of non-Gentile Nobel nominees.

Of course, I don't really think that "80%" figure is correct, either.

Wit is either something which you have naturally and sometimes don't even notice or something you try to emulate.


And to come up with two independent own countries in 21 century in the middle of europe, its not e miracle, nor fate,

I don't know, it is something of a miracle when you see how many ethnicities haven't made it till the present day.
That's how I think of ancestry - it's purely good luck and chance that any of us are about today - just imagine if your ancestor died or something in the past didn't happen leading to you never being born!

Anyway, back to the subject. I wouldn't say that Kosovo was born out of Albanian intelligence, more out of Albanian want of existence more than anything. Albanians survive because they either haven't let themselves become assimilated, no one has tried hard enough to assimilated you or because you're protected by geography.

A lot of it comes down to chance really - if there was no North Sea nor English Channel then there'd probably be no English - just Dutch and French here.
If there were no mountains around Albania and formerly lawless regions inhabited by various mountain tribes the Albanians too would probably be Greeks or Serbs by now.

A part of it probably comes down to intelligence, but I;d say will to survive and chance play more important parts.

We can’t base our findings on the IQ scores from the study that this chart represents. The scores are skewed because of the immigrant populations some of the countries are burdened with. If you consider the top five, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and Singapore are all close to pure societies with very few immigrants; it becomes obvious that countries like the UK, ranked 12th with an average IQ of 100, is burdened with the population of Jamaicans who’s country is ranked 69th with an average IQ of 72. Another example is Germany, ranked 6th with an average IQ of 102, is burdened with a population of Turks who’s country is ranked 40th with an average IQ of 90.

My state of Texas faces a similar problem when we are ranked against the other states for things such as high school dropout rates, teen pregnancies, crime, reading levels, etc. If you were to take all of the Mexicans out of the equation, I have no doubt Texas would be at the top of the list in most cases.

However, I would have to go with the Germans for the most intelligent, based on my business dealings they have an attention to detail and organization, also the quality of their engineered products, and history, a large number of the major accomplishments for mankind in the past 100 years can be traced back to Germany.

We still turn out some bright kids, but also there's a lot of dumb ones who are basically never pushed into achieving more. I don't mind admitting I was one of the latter, fortunately I was pushed to do better by a few good, old fashioned teachers and did quite well in the end after all. :coffee:

That’s a subjective observation. If one were to score high on a standard IQ test, I’m sure he, or she, would not agree with your assertion. But you do have a point. The test utilized by our Intelligence Agencies has changed in recent years and is now focused more on an individual’s capacity and proficiency in lateral thought, rather than what is referred to as rut thought or rut thinking. In addition, the test we administer to our military officers is different from the test we use for our special operations soldiers. In other words, people have the ability to be highly intelligent in varying capacities and we are now better at identifying what kind of intellectual thinker we need in what area of service.

I'd imagine intelligence commonly denotes logical and reasoning skills. It does not mean overall savviness, streetwise, empathy, self-expression, leadership, practicality, competence, speech skills and so forth. An intelligent person may well be utterly mad.

I like Lynn's idea of comparing IQ across nations (here (http://www.isteve.com/IQ_Table.htm) is a better table with sources and original measurements), but I do not find his data very sound. Too many adjustments, too often the data are taken in unusual regions. For instance, for China the tests were administered in Shanghai and Beijing - considering the enormous disparity, they would obviously be drastically smarter than the Chinese average. Which is probably around 94-96 (Raven, Zhang 1993). That does not apply to Europe to such a degree. I'd think a lot of the 3-point differences in Europe really mean nothing.

In opposition to nordicism, there were people like the italian anthropologist Giuseppe Sergi who wrote many books about the mediterranean race (people) and their ''intellectual superiority'' over northern europeans.

from wikipedia :

Sergi's initial contribution was to oppose the use of the cephalic index to model population ancestry, arguing that over all cranial morphology was more useful. [3] However, Sergi's major theoretical achievement was his model of human ancestry, fully articulated in his books Human Variation (Varietà umane. Principio e metodo di classificazione) and The Mediterranean Race (1901), in which he argued that the earliest European peoples arose from original populations in the Horn of Africa, and were related to Hamitic peoples. This primal "Eurafrican race" split into three main groups, the Hamites, the Mediterranean race and the north European Nordic race. Semitic people were closely related to Mediterraneans but constituted a distinct "Afroasian" group[3]. The four great branches of the Mediterranean stock were the Libyans or Berbers , the Ligurians, the Pelasgians and the Iberians. Ancient Egyptians were considered by Sergi as a branch of the Libyans.

According to Sergi the Mediterranean race, the "greatest race in the world", was responsible for the great civilisations of ancient times, including those of Egypt, Carthage, Greece and Rome. These Mediterranean peoples were quite distinct from the peoples of northern Europe. [3]

Sergi argued that the Mediterraneans were more creative and imaginative than other peoples, which explained their ancient cultural and intellectual achievements, but that they were by nature volatile and unstable. In his book The Decline of the Latin Nations he argued that Northern Europeans had developed stoicism, tenacity and self-discipline due to the cold climate, and so were better adapted to succeed in modern civic cultures and economies


Anti-Nordicism
These theories were developed in opposition to Nordicism, the claim that the Nordic race was of pure Aryan stock and naturally superior to other Europeans. Sergi ridiculed Nordicists who claimed that the leaders of ancient Greek and Roman civilization were Germanic in origin and argued that the Germanic invasions at the end of the Roman empire had produced "delinquency, vagabondage and ferocity". Sergi believed that the Aryans were originally "Eurasiatic" barbarians who migrated from the Hindu Kush into Europe. He argued that the Italians had originally spoken a Hamitic language before the Aryan (Indo-European) Italic language spread across the country. Some Aryan influence was detectable in Northern Italy, but, racially speaking, southern Italians were unaffected by Aryan migrants.

Sergi expanded on these theories in later publications. Despite his denigration of Aryans and emphasis on Mediterranean racial identity, he denied that he was motivated by national pride, asserting that his works had the "goal of establishing the veracity of the facts without racial prejudice, without diminishing the value of one human type in order to exalt another one."

His last book, The Britons (1936) sought to trace the rise of the British Empire to the Mediterranean component of the British population.

Mussolini about nordicism :
''Thirty centuries of history allow us to look with supreme pity on certain doctrines which are preached beyond the Alps by the descendants of those who were illiterate when Rome had Caesar, Virgil and Augustus. ” —Benito Mussolini, 1934

My opinion is that intelligence is more related to environnement rather than race.
