Average Intelligence Quotient (IQ) By Countries Expounded!!



What's an IQ? This is the result of a division that shows how an individual is intelligent on the basis of some criteria and measures; popularly calculated using the equation:

 IQ = Mental Age/Chronological age × 100

A Nation's Intelligence Quotient (IQ) is the average IQ of an individual citizen living in that country and usually set the country apart from others.

These IQs seem to bear some relationships with economic growth  and development. Here, I mean technological advancements. This data has however generated a lot criticisms in recent times. Truly, if you take a critical look at it, there are some questions that would be asked within your mind. I personally think, "how accurate can this be?).

Determined by the nature of our brain and the opportunities in our environment, another part of you may want to approve the theories of neuroplasticity.
6 nation has the most noteworthy IQ? What is the normal IQ of your nation? Here is the normal IQ of more than 80 nations.

These numbers originated from a work did from 2002 to 2006 by Richard Lynn, a British Professor of Psychology, and Tatu Vanhanen, a Finnish Professor of Political Science, who led IQ research in more than 80 nations.

In fact, to collect this data, they even went so far to explain the correlations between IQ and the national economy. To me, this correlation makes sense as I am a Nigerian Neuroblogger and Neurothinker but here in this article, I want to avoid unneccessary quibbles and disagreement about the above assertion because everyone has his own unique way of thinking and you may be correct either way.

For this very reason I have not included the countries rank as to their economy.

Average IQ of a Nigerian is 84

Surprised? Are we IQ favoured or not in Nigeria? Tell me your answer after reading this list.
Note: figures in this list are in the normal distribution (bell shape) curve.

U may soon frown or smile at it.....
