Some say that putting your brain to constant use sharpens it while other things such as music,alcohol and drama addiction/film addiction decrease its capability.One person perhaps impersonating as ex pat Hindu in the old forum said that Hindu scientists are not able to achieve anything significant as they marry soon,beget children and then become preoccupied with raising the family while true breakthroughs can only be achieved by say Jewish scientists when they forgo marriage up until a considerable age and continuously focus on research.

It's all about the power of knowledge - where knowledge is power. From early age Jews are educated to seek and acquire knowledge as form of service to society and means for self defense.

That explains the reason Israel today is one of the most advanced countries on earth. Per capita, more startup companies are formed there then any other country - even US.

O.k,I assumed word puzzles to be zig saw puzzles.Also the above person says that Africans have the lowest I.Q.However I have known one senior of mine from class 6th to class 10th whose name was Kalyaan Baabu.He was a converted Christian.Not only was he of completely black complexion ,but his facial features also resembled those of the black race to a large extent.However he was the son of salaried parents,both of whom drew relatively good salaries.So perhaps he was fed a good iron rich diet.

He passed Engineering and works as a software engineer.So perhaps there is too much of generalisation with regards to blacks.

NS, the crucial word is "average". Some groups ON AVERAGE have a higher IQ than others. That does not mean that ALL members of that group are more / less intelligent than others.

It just means that fewer/more people fit into the overall top 5% in one group compared to another. In the overall human population, 5% of them have an IQ over 125. The "middle" value is 100. 5% have an IQ below 75.

If you select some smaller subgroup, you find first the middle value may be different. Not only that, the "spread" may be different.

It would be rather silly to draw conclusions about an individual based on just such data.
