The human average among 7 billions

The human average among 7 billions

...is a 28 y/o Han male. From Who is the world's most typical person?

According to National Geographic, the most typical-looking person in the world is a 28-year-old Han Chinese man.

If only the average human IQ tightly correlated with this demographic. It doesn't. The low enders on the left side of the bell are numerous and extreme enough to skew the median into the low 90s.

Can you give a source for that number?

I can't speak for Scourge but one of the most famous books on the subject "IQ and the Wealth of Nations" claims the world average is 90.

An interesting website that backs this claim is http://www.fourmilab.ch/documents/IQ/1950-2050/
Just look at the animation, the higher the world population becomes the lower the average IQ becomes.

It has been widely observed that the birthrate of countries tends to fall as they become more wealthy. Most countries in Western Europe now have birthrates below the replacement rate; in the absence of immigration, their populations can be expected to fall in the future.

Putting these two pieces of information together, one might expect that since low IQ countries tend to be less wealthy, they should also be expected to have higher birthrates than countries with high IQ. If population IQ and wealth remain constant, the average IQ of the world should then fall over time, since a larger portion of population growth will occur in low IQ countries.

Humanity has always been defined by the exceptions, not the average. That's how evolution works: find the best and make it king, then let it rape the rest and slowly bring them up to speed.

A crude way of putting it sir, but correct in essentials. You such a jerk.
