Intelligence and ethnicity – a minefield for the societally suicidal?

Monday/Tuesday blog

Of all the possible areas for scientific research, examining any links between intelligence and ethnicity must surely be the most reliable road to guaranteed career and social suicide. It’s an even more heinous crime than daring to question the climate change nonsense pumped out by the climate catastrophist crazies enthusiastically supported by the climate propagandists at the BBC.

But I don’t have a career and don’t have any friends so here goes.

Gardner’s ‘Multiple Intelligences’ model

One approach used for classifying human intelligence is the model of multiple intelligences proposed by Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner in his 1983 book Frames of Mind: The Theory of Multiple Intelligences. 

Gardner suggested that all people have different kinds of “intelligences.” To broaden this notion of intelligence, Gardner introduced eight different types of intelligences consisting of: Linguistic, Logical/Mathematical, Spatial, Bodily-Kinesthetic, Musical, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal and Naturalist:

The main implication of this ‘Multiple Intelligences’ model was that people could have successful, fulfilling lives in many different ways depending on which type of intelligence they excelled at.

IQ tests – toxic and despised

We can all see that different ethnicities vary in their physical characteristics. But we are browbeaten into accepting that it is simply impossible that there might be any differences between ethnicities in any of the eight intelligences mentioned above. Yet anyone who is interested in music, sport, business, art, dance or whatever might have noticed that certain ethnicities seem to perform better in certain areas than others.

Of all the eight intelligences (or skills) on the Gardner model, one in particular has been declared a taboo by those who decide what we are allowed to think and say. Political correctness has decreed that IQ tests – which mostly measure logical/mathematical intelligence – have become an anathema in case they do show any differences between different ethnicities.

Here’s a shortish (about 7 minutes) video of someone entering the ‘ethnicity and intelligence minefield’ of IQ tests. Rather him than me.

The only comments I would make are:

  • I have checked the references he cites to confirm that the figures he quotes are genuine
  • I have absolutely no opinion on the matters he discusses but believe that free speech should be permitted unless it is intended to cause harm or violence

    The one issue that never gets mentioned is that IQ is a measure of intelligence relative to people of the same age. Intelligence varies with age, it builds up and then decline sets in, but the IQ of a 90 year old is relative to others of the same age, and cannot be compared with a 20 year old. IQ is also a distribution, so when discussing the average only, people forget that half the people are above average. It seems similar to discussing the average temperature of the earth, a meaningless exercise. I saw a video of Edward Dutton discussing IQ in relation to mass formation and he claimed it was the people around the average who were easily influenced and only very high intelligence people were not. The ones are the very low end he basically said were too stupid to be influenced by anything.

    I watched Andrew Doyle on GBNews last night and he was discussing the woke views on gender. We don’t know the IQ of those he showed speaking but I imagine it was high, but their views were basically nonsense and he used a comment from George Orwell, which was “A speaker who uses that kind of phraseology has gone some distance towards turning himself into a machine. The appropriate noises are coming out of his larynx, but his brain is not involved as it would be if he were choosing his words for himself. If the speech he is making is one that he is accustomed to make over and over again, he may be almost unconscious of what he is saying, as one is when one utters the responses in church.” They can sound intelligent but when questioned they just say the same thing in a different way and all of them are saying the same.

    Do any of us need an IQ score to form an opinion about other people and their views?

    The man in the video, Simon Webb, is a historian. He takes on controversial topics in his YouTube videos, which are currently still monetised by showing adverts. So, even Google, the owner of YouTube, must approve of his regular presentations.

    There must be reasons why Europeans have been responsible for most inventions, innovations and advances. Reasons such as genius levels of intelligence plus necessity (constant warfare and conflict) being the mother of invention.

    Diversity and inclusion has to be a deliberate recipe concocted by our “liberal” globalist friends, in power across the west, to create mediocrity. Which is one of their Marxism-delivering strategies and why they have to do everything they can to hide its real intentions.

    All of their diabolical strategies and tactics are always given one or more virtuous faces.

    Why else are small-minority black people being used in TV adverts across the EU and the Anglosphere, which still includes the USA, to the very noticeable extent they are, including displaying black/white mixed-race couples? It isn’t rocket science.

    Using gender to screw us up is another of the strategies of our “liberal” globalist friends. Below is a link to another of Webb’s videos.

    Simon Webb does an excellent job of presenting his take on the woke madness. His English understatement has even managed to seduce Google YouTube’s robotic operatives.

    Of course, social and sexual equality is the enormous lie that opened the Pandora’s box that brought it about and allowed all the other big lies of the era – the climate emergency and the pandemic – to come about.

    Here he is on the new Dr Who. Over the decades, the BBC has filled itself up with the physiologically exhausted, whose instincts, tragically, are the reverse of the physiologically sound.

    Just when you thought that Dr Who could not get any weirder…

    By the way, I have just heard on On the Money on GB News that the government has banned farmers from using manure to fertilise their land. This must have been done deliberately ahead of the impending food crisis. Because farmers have been fertilising their land with manure since time immemorial, but now the government is telling them how to farm, almost as if it knew in advance of the adverse effects that the war in Ukraine would be having on the world’s supply of grain and fertiliser.

    If only the BBC would listen to the views of Prince Charles once in a while, as he is reported as being a big Dr Who fan.

    However, further research has recently suggested that Prince Charles may have simply claimed to be a big Dr Who fan on advice from Sir Jimmy Saville, in an attempt to make His Lordship popular with hard working single mothers, trying hard to make ends meet, and other working classs scum.

    With BLM taking the lead roles in this groundbreaking, world renowned, science fiction extravaganza, the sexual deviancy of the Doctor and Rose could provide an opportunity for the deviant what writes the scripts,to explore new places to plunge the Doctors sonic screwdriver wherever the plot sags.

    Just because the Doctor and Rose are black does not pardon their peculiar sexual deviancies which are being rammed down our throats and the Doctor and Rose shall forever be an abomination in the eyes of god.

    I for one will be hiding behind the sofa whenever the Doctor or Rose appears on screen and I will only re-emerge when I hear the familiar and comforting voice of a Dalek.
