IQ of the nation and IQ of the individual
It has been observed that some media compare the average IQ of a country with the IQ of a person. For example, it is said that the IQ of Iranians is 84, but the IQ of Albert Einstein was 190. This comparison can be misleading. Some psychological sources state that a person's IQ may be higher than 200, but the highest average IQ of countries is 108.
Another point is that the average IQ of a country is determined by the population living in that country. Therefore, it is said that the average IQ in Iran is 84. This figure is obtained by considering the IQ of Chinese students, The Popular Mobilization Forces stationed in Iran and other foreign mercenaries living in Iran.
IQ of Iranians in history
Estimates show that the average IQ of Iranians in the 1950s was above 100 and close to the IQ of the Japanese people. With the victory of the "glorious Islamic Revolution", the IQ of the Iranian people has gradually declined, so that today Iranians have become the dumbest people in the Caucasus region.
Waves of migration from the country, execution of elites and powerful people, war, unhealthy nutrition, humiliation of young people by special patrols and repressive forces, strengthening mass and mobilization movements, expansion of populist media, nationwide torture such as dealing with women and youth The type of coating, air pollution, etc. are among the factors that have influenced the reduction of the average IQ in Iran.
