  1. Re: Heritability Estimates/ IQ-Behavioural Correlations

    Yep.

    Unlike some other polygenic traits (i.e. height, intelligence, etc), personality traits appear to primarily be the product of non-additive genetic influences (thus, they don't 'breed true'-...

    Re: 'Men cleverer than women' claim scientists

    The Lynn-Irwing study was not nearly as methodologically sound as one may have hoped.

    On the other hand, the Nyborg study used a much more representative sample to reach what is essentially the...

    Re: 'Men cleverer than women' claim scientists

    It appears I was mistaken.

    Contrary to past findings, the Lynn Irwing study finds Females to have more IQ variance.

    Testing for statistical significance is essentially mandatory in order to confirm the findings were not the product of chance alone.

    Important!  Re: Britain is not GERMANIC

    Regardless, the Viking ancestry of the Irish is minimal compared to the Scottish.

    Only 4% of paternal sequences in Dublin belong to the Viking haplogroup of R1a.

    Re: The brain/body size ratio, and intelligence

    The correlations established exist within species and not between them.

    The two aren't mutually exclusive.

    Agreeableness and conscientiousness are also positive correlates of one another (hence the emergence of the psychoticism personality facet).
