A 60-page review of the scientific evidence, some based on state-of-the-art magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of brain size, has concluded that race differences in average IQ are largely genetic. The lead article in the June 2005 issue of Psychology, Public Policy and Law, a journal of the American Psychological Association, examined 10 categories of research evidence from around the world to contrast "a hereditarian model (50% genetic-50% cultural) and a culture-only model (0% genetic-100% cultural)."

Welcome to the forum, Asian-American. Todd has a high g too, but I’m hoping you’re less effusive/convoluted than he.

Note to Todd: What this means is that high g is number one, low g is number ten. Ah-so?

Note to JimB: Hopefully my mediocre g and ADD haven’t triggered a too insensitive and/or too over the top post here. If so, I’ll ask the shrink to increase my Adderall . . . although he probably can’t do much for the g.
