View Full Version : Are Aethiopids inferior to pure Congoids in terms of IQ?

The national IQ of Ethiopia is 63, the lowest in the world yet it is the most Caucasoid of black nations.

The average IQ of West African Congoids is 85 according to Lynn.

This seems to mess the reasonable hypothesis that blacks with Caucasian admixture are more intelligent than pure Negroids.

Perhaps you could make an argument for hybrid depression in White-Black mixes, however?

Ethiopia is a multi-ethnic country. The ruling classes come from the Amhara & Tigray groups which are presumed to be part Caucasoid, but these two groups are around 1/3 of the population. Other groups in Ethiopia include Somalis & East African Negroes.

Ethiopia is a special case indeed and one should always distinguish between the various ethnoracial groups and environmental factors. Furthermore the higher classic Negrid IQ from where? Congo itself f.e. has hardly a much higher IQ...

Richard Lynn's table:

Capoid Khoisans have an average IQ of 54 (!) and at least according to Wikipedia Ethiopians share some genetic markers with them which could explain the Ethiopian low score.

I also elaborate on the fact that West African blacks have the same average IQ as American blacks who are descended from them in this thread:

This table is not detailed enough I'd say and various African countries beside Ethiopia were listed below 70 points in most sources and if its about the colonies, f.e. Haiti is below 75.

Nutrition has a significant effect on IQ and neurophysical development. Also, according to Lynn the population size of Bushmen has been too small for the alleles for higher neurophysical processes to emerge.
