Is personality strongly influenced by race? If so what personality traits would you attribute to the Nordic race and what explanation would you give for their evolution?

I would have to say personality has a lot to do with race. European/Nordic races tend to have a stronger sense of self (and self-dignity), but are typically quieter people than are non-Nordics.

Very interesting. I actually haven't given this much thought before, but now that I think about it I believe you to be right - at least it seems to fit well with my experiences...

How do we explain this?

Yes it does. Nords are quiet and contemplative.

Nords tend to be quiet,reserved,less emotional and place a lot of value on privacy.
I think the contrast between med culture and nordic culture shows this quiet clearly.

Yes, and we also like a lot of space.

Just reading this also reminded of me...not only comparing Negroids with Nords... ;-) But also Asians... Their personalities are affected by their race, BECAUSE of how they are raised (I don't think this part is genetic, but I could be wrong). Traditional Asian families are taught not to share their feelings, express their emotions, etc (to each other), and they are therefore less likely to do this in public, as well.

Shy, self reliant, trustworthy, altruistic, productive, Nice enumeration, i would add "creative" in the sense of "schaffend". I think there's a difference between "productive" and "creative".
unfulfilled with modern life.Because he feels the emptieness of the modern world and knows there was something in the past, a mystical, spiritual strength. :frown:

Is there any serious studies about a possible correlation between race and character traits, including mental faculties? In other forums, lots of pseudo-scientific about the supreme Nordic intelligence (which I doubt on many points) but actually is there any good scientific entreprises about this matter which could be debated here?

Can we base this on the IQ of every individual?

Like I am Skando Nordid and my IQ is 118:)

I'm Nordid with minor Cro Magnid influences and my IQ is 137.

Hasn't it allready been proven that there is a correlation between IQ and personality?

If I got him right, he asked not for a relation between IQ and personality, but for Race and IQ, and/or Race and personality

Rushton made some research in this regard
http://psychology.uwo.ca/faculty/rushton_pubs.htm

Coincidentally, his latest publication deals with this question

Search for Kretschmer and Sheldon/schizothymic and zyklothymic here on the forum, there are quite a few of threads where this matter is and has been discussed.

I see you on the other hand being annoyed about seeing the number 137 for an IQ score, why i have no idea, inferiority complex (with reservations for me being wrong about that)?

Well that brings us again to the relation between IQ and personality :D

I consider current IQ test results as irrelevant because they test only a small part of the brain's abilities and pure logical thinking is useless aswell without creativity or imigination. Well, personally I like IQ tests but just as some kind of brain jogging and not as serious indicator for my intellect though the results were rather high mostly.
