Repeated studies and surveys have shown, that more intelligent a person is, the less children they have.
In 1973 a big survey was done in America, asking parents if they could turn back the clock, would they still have had children. 70% said NO!
In a more recent survey in the UK only 4% of parents questioned sad that child raising had met their expectations and 60% said having children had damaged the relationship with their partner.
When I see a woman with more than 3 kids, I do assume she is of low intelligence, unless she is wealthy and can afford to provide well for all her children.
I have friends who have a 3 bedroomed home and have had 4 kids. So the boy child has his own (very small bedroom) and the 3 girls have to share a bedroom.
To me that seems strange, to over crowd a home when you could have stopped at 2 kids. Now my friend cannot find a suitably good school for her oldest daughter. Had she not had 4 kids, she would be in a position (like my cousin) to afford to send her child to a private school. But because of stretched finances, this is impossible.
Why do higher IQ people have few kids?

It's not about having NO kids...it's about why do couples with high IQ not have 4, 5, 8 kids, while poorly educated dumb couples do?

Well... that was harsh. "poorly educated dumb couples"

Anyway, I think when it comes to what people want for their children educated people know how to get there and how much that will cost and that quality of life is important. They want quality education for their kids and to send them to Oxford or Cambridge. Whereas, people who you say are "poorly educated and dumb" do not see the need to have 1 child who they can send to expensive and very good schools. Also, educated people usually focus on their careers and don't want to spend too much time on Maternity Leave ;)

Personally I want two children. I am African and it is just in my nature to want kids, but only after I complete my PhD so that's at least 5 years from now. What I can't stand is couples who have so many children and deprive them of basic necessities that it comes to the point of being child abuse. In Africa, the hope is that at least one of those 12 children will look after you when you grow old... talk about selfishness, having kids just so that you have a security in old age... smh

Your sister, do all her children share the same father?

It's an aquaintance, and yes they have the same father.
I also think high IQ people, think more deeply about the world and what goes on in it. The more you think about how corrupt the world is, the less you feel inclined to bring children into it.

It seems likely that with intelligence has come a linked gene for less fertility!
Do you think a thug who refuses to wear condoms and fathers 8 children by 8 different women, is more fertile than an intellectual who makes 2 children within a stable marriage?

Given the current state of affairs, it's not difficult to understand why intelligent people choose to have less or no children. The resources and opportunities that were available a generation ago are not as plentiful as they used to be. People care less about each other and have become complacent.

The commitment to family, education and strong work ethics is disappearing while those already rich and powerful continue to hoard most of the world's wealth, which no doubt is one of the root causes of many of today's problems.

I don't know if it has anything to do with IQ'S but more to do with common sense. I think poor or people with money should be able to have kids however I wouldn't have a kid until I have a career and a husband I know I can count on who also has a career. That way we can live a comfortable life and afford to have kids who can have everything they NEED. I don't necessarily think it's the best or smartest idea to have kids when you can't afford it but that has nothing to do with their IQ. I just think they lack a little judgment. My mother had 5 kids and she took care of all of us the best she could with no government handouts.I would consider her working class. I mean she pays the bills but far from a comfortable lifestyle. We didn't have everything we wanted but we had everything we needed. My mother is college educated and is very brilliant and I'm not just saying that because she's my mother. So no having more then 2 kids when your not well off doesn't mean you have a low IQ, I don't care what studies show. I'm coming at you with experience.

I agree, but even very rich people often only have one or two kids, while the poorest people have 5 or 6.

IQ is not inherited, it's just striking lucky. A low IQ couple can create a genius child.
I don't think you can be an adequate mother to 5 kids. I don't think you can give full attention to more than 2 kids. I think children from large families are often emotionally neglected, disadvantaged and they often have to take care of their younger siblings, when it shouldn't be their responsibility.
Add to that overcrowding and unneccsary poverty.

Yes, SBT has a thing for telling the truth about MACEO! lmao

An African person said "Your "JEALOUS" of Black women and your White wife because they've been "Successful" while you failed"! Which is why you never helped her! lmao

I think you only made yourself look bad!

That also why you "FAKE BEING SICKER THAN WHAT YOU ARE BECAUSE YOUR ANGRY YOU WERE DEMOTED AND LOST EVERYBODY UNDER YOU! Which is also childish and how you act on many things when they don't go your way like a "Little Childish Boy"! lmao

You've always been a Habitual liar, Deceiver, FOOL and a SCOFFER.

The Fool (Proverbs 26:1-11)

2. TO EMPLOY A FOOL IS A TRAGIC MISTAKE. Those who are responsible for hiring employees will want to take special note of the warnings of Proverbs to those who would hire a fool.

He cuts off his own feet, and drinks violence causing trouble and strife among others. He Who sends a message by the hand of a fool (26:6). Like an archer who wounds everyone, So is he who hires a fool or who hires those who pass by (26:10).

THE FOOL IS UNREALISTIC. The fool fails to see things as they are. Reality is distorted by the fool’s distorted outlook on life.

THE FOOL IS UNREALISTIC ABOUT HIMSELF in that he overestimates his knowledge and abilities:
“Proud,”“Haughty,”“Scoffer,and FOOL” are his names, Who acts with insolent pride (21:24).

THE FOOL IS UNCONCERNED WITH PRESENT REALITIES, and is a wishful thinker. His “ship” is always about to “come in.”

A prudent man conceals knowledge, But the heart of fools proclaims folly (12:23, cf. 10:14).

The tongue of the wise makes knowledge acceptable, But the mouth of fools spouts folly (15:2; cf. 18:2,7).

It is little wonder that the fool is referred to as a “babbling fool”(literally, the foolish of lips, 10:8,10).

HE IS UNRELIABLE IN HIS WORK: The fool is dishonest and evil and cannot be trusted in any area.
He cuts off his own feet, and drinks violence . He sends a message by the hand of a fool (26:6).

Like an archer who wounds everyone, So is he who hires a fool or who hires those who pass by (26:10).

HE IS UNRELIABLE IN HIS WORDS. The words of the fool are always to be questioned. He is a liar, a deceiver, and a slanderer.
He who conceals hatred has lying lips, And he who spreads slander is a fool (10:18).

THE FOOL IS UNTEACHABLE. Try as you like, attempting to teach a fool is frustrating at best, and often painful. Whenever a fool is faced with wisdom and instruction, he will reject it.

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction (1:7).

Because they hated knowledge, And did not choose the fear of the Lord. They would not accept my counsel, They spurned all my reproof So they shall eat of the fruit of their own way, And be satiated with their own devices. For the waywardness of the naive shall kill them, And the complacency of fools shall destroy them (1:29-32).

Whenever the fool is disciplined, he resists it

YOU NEED TO SEE A MENTAL HEALTH SPECIALIST YOUR A FOOL!! LMAO

YOU HAVE ALL OF THE CHARACTERISTICS OF A FOOL AND LOST EVERYTHING JUST LIKE GOD SAID YOU WOULD!

THOU FOOL MACEO

https://bible.org/seriespage/fool-proverbs-26 ...

GOD says don't entertain a SCOFFER OR A FOOL HE WILL RUIN EVERY PERSON WHO COMES INTO HIS LIFE LIKE YOU DID!

THOU FOOL MACEO!

https://bible.org/seriespage/fool-proverbs-26 ...

What's wrong you angry because I watched my choices and was smart enough to see the end results?

Like the WORD OF GOD STATES

Better is a poor man who walks in his integrity Than he who is perverse in speech and is a fool (19:1).

GOD SAID YOUR UNTEACHABLE YOUR A FOOL!

Is this a trend on this forum where people make broad statements based on nothing more then their ignorant personal opinion but try to pass it off as facts? Excuse me but my mother is more then adequate. I couldn't have asked for a better mother. None if us were neglected emotionally or physically. Especially none of us were taking care of each other. Tell me if I'm missing something but I just don't see how IQ has anything to do with childbearing. Shit there's some women who can't have kids who would die to have 5 children. We may agree on the fact that it's probably a better idea to have kids when you can afford to have them but I think you're going a bit far by insulting people who do and trying to come up with studies and reasons for why their less intelligent and less worthy of respect then people who choose to have less children. Keep in mind none of the things you've stated are facts. In fact there more generalizations then anything. I've seen people with high IQs with many kids and I've seen people with low IQs with fewer kids. Honestly this thread is so ignorant I rather say what I need and go. Have a good night hun.
