Default Iq's in Italy
Mean Northern Italian IQ up to 14 points higher than Southern Italian IQ
Abstract: Regional differences in IQ are presented for 12 regions of Italy showing that IQs are highest in the north and lowest in the south. Regional IQs obtained in 2006 are highly correlated with average incomes at r=0.937, and with stature, infant mortality, literacy and education. The lower IQ in southern Italy may be attributable to genetic admixture with populations from the Near East and North Africa.



Region IQ

Friuli-Venezia 103
Trentino 101
Veneto 101
Tuscany
Lombardy 100
Piedmont 100
Liguria 97
Emilia Romana 100
Umbria
Lazio
Abruzzi Basilicata 92
Campania 90
Puglia Arulia 91
Sardinia 90
Calabria
Sicily 89

I figured I would post this. I think this shows rather well that Genetics are at play.
Since Southern Italians are more mixed than Northern Italians.

Even though Southern Italians live more like Northern Italians than they live like people in North Africa & the Near & Middle East.

Southern Italians have an iq closer to people in North Africa, the Near East & Middle East than they do to Northern Italians.

Sicily & Calabria tested a 89 iq.

Turkey tested a 90 iq
Iraq tested a 87 iq
Jordan tested a 87 iq
Lebanon tested a 86 iq
Morrocco tested a 85 iq.
Algeria tested a 84 iq
Tunisia tested a 84 iq
Saudi Arabia tested a 83 iq
Egypt tested a 83 iq

While Sicily & Calabria have an iq 14 points than parts of Northern Italy like Friuli-Venezia which tested a 103 iq.

The biggest difference in Local Mediterranean. stock between Sicily & Egypt / Saudia Arabia was just 6 points lower.

So, Southern Italians score iq test scores closer to Middle Easterners, North Africans ect.

Even the Heirachy of the Iq in the Middle east show that wealth & the Human developement index is irrelevent.

As Iraq has an iq 4 points higher than the much better off Saudi Arabia.

I do think that there is a difference in intelligence between the North and the South+Sardinia, but not that high. A difference of 4-5 points is more realistical IMHO.

Lynn himself acknowledged his own error-

Beraldo (this issue) and Cornoldi, Belacchi, Giofre, Martini, and Tressoldi (2010) (CBGMT) have eight criticisms of my paper (Lynn, 2010) claiming that the large north-south differences in per capita income in Italy are attributable to differences in the average levels of intelligence in the populations. CBGMT give results for seven data sets for IQs in the north and south of Italy. All of these show that IQs are higher in the north than in the south, although the differences are not as great as those I calculated. Other criticisms to the effect that the PISA tests are not measures of intelligence are refuted. The results of two further studies are given that confirm that IQs in the north of Italy are approximately 10 IQ points higher than in the south. http://italianthro.blogspot.it/2010/...r-refuted.html

LOL, that is the rubbish realised by a charlatan called Richard Lynn, an incompetent sociologist, that wouldn't find any kind of visibility by the medias if he didn't realise such controversial researches.

those datas are not IQ results, but they are based on the PISA TESTS by the Programme for International Student Assessment, they calculate the level of knowledge of students in different subjects, like reading and mathematics, not the IQ, that is a completely different thing.
Better quality of teaching is equal to higher knowledge in the school subjects.

I'm wondering what is the IQ of people that believe to all crap found in the net.

Sicily & Calabria tested a 89 iq.
Wasn't middle east the Cradle of civilization?

Those numbers are just bullshits

And in any case southern italy Iq is more or less the same of the USA



national Iq map, it doesn't show only the Iq of native americans, but also white people, and it's the same about Australia.
