Asian? Check. Glasses? Check. High IQ? Check.
IQ has always been a somewhat controversial topic. Some people say that it is a good measure of intelligence, others will say that it is not. I am of the opinion that IQ is measuring something. And that something that IQ measures has very clear correlation to things like income, crime and quite possibly intelligence.
If we were to measure intelligence solely on IQ then Asians would come out on top when it comes to races. I find this pretty interesting. Following Asians with the highest IQs you have Whites, Hispanics and Blacks.
Asians clearly have the highest IQ out of any race
The graph above shows how Asians have higher IQs than any other race. So when it comes to IQs you have Asians at the top.
"The debate concerns the interpretation of research findings that test takers identifying as 'White' tend on average to score higher than test takers of African ancestry on IQ tests, and subsequent findings that test takers of East Asian background tend to score higher than whites."
When you look at it by country you will also find this same pattern. Countries where the population is predominantly Asian have the highest IQs. Countries that are White and Hispanic have lower IQs, while countries that are predominantly Black, like Africa, have the lowest IQs.
But it isn't just country. It is also race. Asians in American have higher IQs than Whites in America and so on. So within the same country the differences in race and IQ is still heavily apparent.
