    Question Thesis Paper on Intelligence Regarding Hair Color

    I am working on my thesis paper on intelligence regarding hair color, does anyone have any links to not-blatantly racist sites that give proper facts and figures proving the intelligence of blond/es over that of people with black hair, such as Africans.

    A tip: drop the Africans and concentrate on differences within the European population, that way I think that you will face less "opposition" from faculty and other students.

    I remember seeing something about blonde and blu-eyed children being more intelligent, and I found one old study that had looked at this:

    http://www.jstor.org/pss/1415114

    There are also evidence that women with larger breasts are smarter than other women:

    http://beyondjane.com/women/are-big-...e-intelligent/

    That make sense since large breasts are usually seen as a handicap that signals a higher degree of fitness. You also find evidence that physically attractive individuals usually have a higher IQ than less attractive ones:

    http://vishalganesan.wordpress.com/2...ttractiveness/

    You can also find that people with darker eyes seem to react faster than people with lighter eyes, and that this seems to be based in differences in neurochemistry.

    So, maybe blue-eyed people get higher IQ in exchange for slower reactions?

    Maybe I'm wrong, but something tells me that the correlation between hair colour and IQ will be largely varied and inconsistent.

    I agree, and also think that you might find that many of the smartest people whom we have decent records of are actually brown haired. Probably the greater majority, even if you are just working within a European/caucasoid spectrum.

    Saying Africans are less intelligent because they have black hair seems like the the answer is already there: it's not because they have black hair, they just all do have black hair. If you sampled the IQs of a population of blacks (who all possess black hair) then you'd probably find a wide variation amongst them (suggesting that it's not their hair making them stupid, but some other reason. Since this is for a university it will be explained as either a lack of education or due to low living/health standards which are a product of European colonialism. Even if you have samples of African Americans or Europeans it's going to the be case that people say it is from social issues.).

    I suppose it would be interesting (and entirely unethical) to take families of blind people of any race and get large enough numbers and have them live in some society where they can't see racial differences and educate/raise them all in the same way and see what the resulting levels of intelligence are. Something like that would probably prove race based differences (although I suppose you could argue the level of technological advancement until the modern age proves it already).

    I definitely agree with you that Sub-Saharan African populations are a lot less intelligent on average, I just think your thesis might get torn apart by people at your university if that's what you're trying to prove.

    They say all stereotypes are implicitly at least partly true.

    Hair coloring is the latest fashion trend, and today more and more people start coloring their hair to look different and new. Some believe that a hair color can add some shine, meaning and fun to their hairstyle, while for others it is just the easiest and fastest option to change their looks.

    For many, many years we have been hearing that blond women tend to have more fun, and that "gentlemen prefer blondes," but the findings of a recent survey suggest us the opposite.

    A new study by Garnier Nutrisse hair colouring found that, in reality, it is the brunette women who actually have the best in life. It has been revealed that dark-haired women earn much more and are more successful in the workplace and in the bedroom than blonds or redheads.

    Garnier surveyed around 6,000 people as part of its research, both women and men, and found that brunettes are twice as likely to earn $65,000 to $80,000 compared to their flaxen-haired friends. In addition, 75 per cent of people think that brunettes are smarter and more intelligent than blondes, and 71 per cent would pick a dark-haired woman as an ideal partner for a long-term relationship. 81 per cent of people surveyed consider brunettes as the most genuine, and 66 per cent said they are the least moody.

    When it came to partners and relationships, the poll revealed that, unlike what we might have believed so far, the dark-haired women are the most successful in love and personal relationship. A quarter of the surveyed brunettes have rated themselves as above average in bed, considerably more than blondes and redheads, who admitted that steamy situations make them shy.

    I think alot of the "Dumb Blond" thing is mostly a Hollywood stereotype.

    as far as any kind of wage gap, that may be due to the fact that Germans, and Scandinavians If I'm not mistaken were later immigrants, and are more situated in the Planes States, Colorado, California, Texas. and such.

    As such they would have, lower pay because the place where they live has fewer opportunities in big business and industry.

    Also maybe this is just me, but it seems as if Hollywood, has been increasingly portraying blonds, especially women in a more negative light then they have in the past. In the past they were "Bimbos" but now they are more or less portrayed as out right bitches, which will have an effect on the way men see them, and will also have an effect on their relationships with men, and will carry over into the amount of money they are able to make.

    Also I would say in that light, Sweden does have many out right Feminist Ding Dongs, and this does not help their image in any context.

    Actually I think where the stereotype comes from is when...
    1) A girl with brown hair is not happy about herself (like sorority girls)
    2) Wants more attention

    The solution- Dye their hair a bright color.

    From my own experiences, girls with natural blond hair seem normal. But the ones who typically dye their hair are more arrogant and self centered (not always but I think on average this holds true).

    I wouldn't do a paper on this if I were you.
    Maybe a paper on the psychological decision of why some girls dye their hair. For example, ask them why they dye their hair.

    Curtis, while your post said brunettes were twice as likely to make more money then blonds, well let's just sasy that's a "duh!" Blondes make up less then 1-2% of the world, and in the states about 10-15%... the fact that bruntettes are twice as likely means that percentage wise blondes are far more likely to be intelligent and rich.

    I really don't think you will be able to find any links, or very few if at all, with scientific "proper facts and figures" proving your hypothesis that blondes are the most intelligient. Hair colour among whites, especially Germanics has relatively nothing to do with intelligience.

    It has been proven and determined that Germanic whites are by far the most intelligient and accomplished race on earth, but as far as intelligience, it doesn't make a difference on solely what their hair colour is (and not all people of German ancestry have blonde hair).

    I do remember seeing one article about intelligience regarding eye colour, I think it was titled "Why Blue Eyed People Are So Brilliant" or something, but that's all I can remember, as far as hair colour there's no consensus out there that I know of that blondes (among other European hair colours) are more intelligient.

    here's the link:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencete...brilliant.html



    Supposedly, that in some apples to oranges comparisons it could have validity, such as comparing a blonde German to a black haired African or Mexican. But that's based on ethnicity, not solely hair colour. There's no reason to believe that in a comparison between a blonde German and a darker haired German of the same racial stock that the former has higher levels of intelligience based on their fairer hair color. It would be quite hard to come across scientific links containing documented "facts and figures", proving that blondes (among the Germanic/North European population) are inclined to higher intelligience levels, since it's unlikely that a gene such as hair colour that is unrelated to intelligience can make a difference.

    Oh come now, you really think hair color is a determining factor in IQ?
    Give me a break.
