    European IQ: Germans the Smartest People



    Professor Lynn said that populations in the colder, more challenging environments of Northern Europe had developed larger brains than those in warmer climates further south. The average brain size in Northern and Central Europe is 1,320cc and in southeast Europe it is 1,312cc. “The early human beings in northerly areas had to survive during cold winters when there were no plant foods and they were forced to hunt big game,” he said. “The main environmental influence on IQ is diet, and people in southeast Europe would have had less of the proteins, minerals and vitamins provided by meat which are essential for brain development.”

    Then eskimos, inuitts, sorry, should be ruling the world according to this theory. They live in a very cold and extreme climate, they are hunters, they have a large animal protein ingesta and they live far north...

    You might also consider the Mongolians whos diet consists almost entirely of protein. What they fail to address is the fact that countries such as Bulgaria and Turkey have some populations which retained the traditional agricultural farming lifestyles, detached from the industrialized cosmopolitan lifestyle. The countries still struggling to recover economically from the Soviet occupation naturally will have a poorer standard of living and consequently these populations usually have a lower literacy rate.

    Re: European IQ: Germans the most smartest people

    This research is a bit wrong cause Finland is in 12 place.

    Finns are worlds most intelligent and most educated people.

    Only the older finnish generation are idiots but the younger generation is worlds best in every aspect.

    Wow, I didn't know this...
    Winters in Russia much more colder than in Europe and about invironments I keep silence at all, so make conclusions.


    (Nothern Europe in BW's definition have good thing to warm itself named Golfstream; Here in Russia we have damned cold wind's and deep snow... That's that)

    Well, since Germany is number one ... I like the article

    Anyway, if they just made some IQ-Test, what's junk about that?

    Quite a good correlation, although it would be interesting to know how much immigrants polluted the studies.

    Turks in Germany for example have an average IQ of 85, Russians of 90.

    Re: European IQ: Germans the most smartest people

    I´d really want to know what results could basques have in this kind of tests. (I just curious )
    Studies in Spain said that basques were the people in the state with less scholar failures...
    Anyway,we shouldn´t believe all studies...
    TURKS AREN´T MORE INTELLIGENT THAN SERBS!!!

    Re: AW: European IQ: Germans the most smartest people

    Professor Lynn said that populations in the colder, more challenging environments of Northern Europe had developed larger brains than those in warmer climates further south.

    The average brain size in Northern and Central Europe is 1,320cc and in southeast Europe it is 1,312cc.
    Professor Lynn can say a lot, but the larger vaults are more likely of Cromagnid origin (and there are never old Cro-Magnons found with small crania!) most researches mention the overall decrease of cranial capacity of people all over Europe since the Ice-Age.

    Only one of the last researches done shows maybe a slight increase of the cranial capacity since the last 600 years, because of headheight increase.

    Thread about it:http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=47127

    Also the numbers about the capacity are very global taken, Northern-Europe + Central-Europe on average 1320 cc (I suppose it is men and women).
    Here are some more regional numbers sadly enough I don't have more recent measurements.

    These are from 'Antropography of Terpia (1927), JDH Nyessen' and shows the average capacity of skulls belonging to different Germanic tribes (men and women). Included are two series of Swedes and Dutchmen from 1927.

    Swiss Burgundians: 1451 cc. (Schwerz)
    Alamanni of Augst: 1418 cc. (Schwerz)
    Old Friterpians: 1484 cc. (Nyessen)
    Old Groterpians: 1458 cc. (Nyessen)
    Old Bavarians: 1419 cc. (Ranke)

    NW-Germans 9th-14th century: 1422 cc.(Gildemeister)

    Modern Dutchmen: 1425 cc. (Broca)
    Modern Swedes: 1409 cc. (Valentin)
