I think that IQ tests to a certain degree are based on how well educated you are in completing IQ tests. I know people with very high IQs who would likely get completely stumped on some of the tests because not having experienced that form of testing would not even be aware of what the test was asking of them. In general though they likely are somewhat represtative of how intelligent a person is. But if you took a very intelligent person out of the jungle in Brazil, who could neither read nor write, and gave him an IQ test verbally, I doubt that he would score very high.

IQ tests measure a number of things. Intelligence is a very general mental capability that, among other things, involves the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, learn quickly and learn from experience. It is not merely book learning, a narrow academic skill, or test-taking smarts. Rather, it reflects a broader and deeper capability for comprehending our surroundings--"catching on," "making sense" of things, or "figuring out" what to do.

What about a passing the orange that you hold under your chin in a mixed group of men and women? That can be exciting. They used to play that at community social events when I was a kid, and so women could get to nuzzle some other woman's husband and vice versa while trying to pass an orange without using their hands.

We were a relatively thin society back in those days. Today I am not sure that about half the population could hold an orange under their chin, because there would be too much fat in the way.

Iq tests do not measure your knowledge, they measure your ability to think for if they measured your knowledge most all peoples IQ would continue to rise through out life.

Intelligence, so defined, can be measured, and intelligence tests measure it well. They are among the most accurate (in technical terms, reliable and valid) of all psychological tests and assessments. They do not measure creativity, character personality, or other important differences among individuals, nor are they intended to.

While there are different types of intelligence tests, they all measure the same intelligence. Some use words or numbers and require specific cultural knowledge (like vocabulary). Others do not, and instead use shapes or designs and require knowledge of only simple, universal concepts (many/few, open/closed, up/down).

You are correct. Race is defined as a group of people related by common heredity.

That's what I was trying to say. They say Indians are good at IQ tests because that's what the questions are like in India and here in England we had to do IQ tests every bloody year, mock and real one's, and u just know what the questions are going to be like, they're always the same, so of course we're gonna do better than black and white people. We're brainwashed for the IQ tests.

Plus we get a good beating from our mother, with the rolling pin, if we don't, lol, I think that's the secret to getting high scores!

I said "race" was a cultural concept, which it is. Genetic differences in populations do not constitute races.

Darwin didn't support racism, or Social Darwinism, which was an agenda driven farce, not a scientific endeavor.

Really? So someone can't be born into a ghetto? Lots of bad things happen in ghettos, not just "low IQ" things. Also, IQ and intelligence are NOT the same thing.

You know if I was wrong, I would've complained (in writing, lol) to my university for teaching me sh*t and taking my money for teaching me sh*t!!

That's why in India we didn't breed outside of our caste. Before, u'll see that the characteristics of each caste was VERY different but now we breeding with anyone so the differences are changing.

More whites are serial killers due to population numbers but the percentage of blacks that are serial killers is higher than the percentage of whites that are serial killers.
Oh but Pat , this is where you are mistaken.
Black people kill because of reasons that make sense.(mostly) Even serial murderers who are black follow a pattern of behavior that is predictable. This is where the white killer in his evasion is ultimately and completely more stupidior . And sadly the complexity
of mental disorder is reflected in ability to plan bizarre episodes of psychotic behavior.

Let's never pretend this is a good thing.
