World’s Average IQ Distribution Map bigsale Sep 23rd, 11, 08:45 AM #1


It makes you wonder, despite all their achievements, apparently the Australian has the lowest IQ score in the world besides Botswana.

China, Japan and Korea occupy the top spots with the highest IQ scores.

Without credible sources cited in the Wiki article, the accuracy of this map is questionable. Although, someone from Digg has this to say:


The map referenced by this article was taken from the book “Race Differences in Intelligence: An Evolutionary Analysis” by Richard Lynn. The book focuses on intelligence per race NOT nationality. Richard and Co “tested” (actually just used others research) approximately 813,778 individuals worldwide so basically 0.01% of the worlds population. The people tested were only those indigenous to each country, so for Australia only 2.4% (approximately 400, 000 people) of the population is indigenous, whereas Asia has an indigenous population of 70%.

So for Chinese Singaporeans, we should look at China which has the highest IQ.
