Are Asians smarter than the rest of us? Or are we more dumb than we were before?

How would you define smart?
Hitler- If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.

Stalin- Ideas are more powerful than guns. We would not let our enemies have guns, why should we let them have ideas.

Machiavelli- It is better to be feared than loved, if you cannot be both.

How would you define smart?

Smarter- being more intelligent than the person next to you.

I mean you would also have to define intelligence. I'm asking if what makes someone smarter is that they cover more areas of knowledge, or knowledge depth, etc.

I guess you can't exactly measure that. But just by your personal observations, do you think Asians are smarter than everyone else?

Sort of. Asians have a higher average intelligence, but whites males have a higher percentage of super smart/ genious level iqs. There is also a subgroup of white jews with a higher average intelligence than everyone else even asians.

I'm talking about stem courses such as mathematics, science, business, engineering. I don't think they're good at philosophy, literature, and other liberal arts and humanities.

I believe that the current socio-political state of many Asian countries such as China, Singapore, and Taiwan creates high incentives for academic prowess.

Ambiguity isn't a friend. You didn't specify what constitutes Asian. Someone born in China is Asian as their country of origin but aren't considered the race of Asian if they are Caucasian. Arabs, Turks, Iranians, and Kurds are all from southwest Asia, hence are Asian too.

They're around the same due to environmental factors. Though, Asians of western natuonalities tend to be a little smarter, since you get the wealthiest and most educated being more likely to emigrate out of countries like China.

I've spent quite a lot of time looking into the topic of human differences, and in all that time I haven't come across any good reason to think that cognitive capacities are identical across ethnic groups, or even an explanation for why this would be anything less than a miracle. Instead what I've found, on the rare occasion that someone acknowledges that other perspectives are possible, are frantic attempts to shoot down claims to the contrary with what appears to be every argument they can think of. Despite having at best only the skimpiest of evidence on their side, biological egalitarians seem to regard their position as so obvious that consideration for the other side is deemed unnecessary. Those who dissent from their point of view either receive the silent treatment or are denounced as racist lunatics. After all, anyone willing to entertain the notion that 2000 generations of isolated breeding in substantially different environments could produce e.g., one standard of deviation of difference in traits like abstract reasoning ability, cannot be motivated by anything other than blind racism. It really is a tribute to the human capacity for self-deception that when ideological commitments are thought to be at stake otherwise objective people can hold views so widely at odds with what the evidence does and does not tell us. I frankly don't have a problem with being agnostic on the issue, but to act as if biological egalitarianism is not only true, but obviously true (which is indeed the position of most people) is an embarrassment.

Intelligence Quotient has no bearing on which culture is smarter because as it was stated based on the IQ critique, there are various factors which makes someone or group have an high IQ

Depends, how does someone with a 70 iq perform? I may have a 70 IQ but I'm in graduate school. According to some IQ test I may do horrible. Maybe I'm a bad test taker yet I can graduate college and hold down a successful job.

Asians spend less time on outdoor activities and sport. This why they are all myopic and need glasses. lol

How would you define smart?

Smarter- being more intelligent than the person next to you.

I mean you would also have to define intelligence. I'm asking if what makes someone smarter is that they cover more areas of knowledge, or knowledge depth, etc.

Knowledge areas and knowledge depth added together and averaged out.

Are some knowledgeable area more intelligently than others? Also how would you measure how in depth, for example, algebra is in mathematics?

I guess you can't exactly measure that. But just by your personal observations, do you think Asians are smarter than everyone else?

ummm... not necessarily smarter, but more disciplined.

How about intelligent?

On trivial things.

How about on academic things?

I'm talking about stem courses such as mathematics, science, business, engineering. I don't think they're good at philosophy, literature, and other liberal arts and humanities.


You could have "they" refer to any race of people and as long as you judge them all together and claim "they" aren't good at something as broad as "literature" or "liberal arts" you're going to sound ridiculous.

No, Asians aren't smarter than the rest of us. There have been studies of average IQ's that have shown that Asians tend to have a slightly higher average than most other groups, but intelligence is such a broad category that it's really not worth comparing.
