On China and IQ research

  1. Mar 18, 2013 #1
    Seems to be a real thing.


    This research is certainly interesting. I think it's about time someone started doing this kind of work. Personally, I think finding the "ingredients" for intelligence is going to be more complex then BGI Shenzen is imagining. Nevertheless, this can only contribute to our knowledge of genetics and neuroscience.

    Hopefully this thread plays out better (and by hopefully, I mean you either provide a legitimate source, or this thread will ultimately be locked down).

    All predispositions of psychology or neuroscience (essentially biological psychology) aside, I did find this piece from my psychology textbook (Psychology 8th edition by David Meyers, for the interested) to be very accurate and well written:

    Creating a populous that is more adept at taking IQ tests does not seem to be very beneficial to me; instead finding ways to improve work habits, motivation, and a desire to learn would, in my opinion, produce a more productive society than simply having fast puzzle solvers would.

    And there has to be a source out there somewhere that isn't just a blog.......
