5 Secrets About Ireland and IQ Tests
By James Dolson Published: 11/09/2009
No matter what those fancy continental countries may think about their vaunted education systems and oh--so--refined brains, they can really say whatever they want -- the facts on the ground point to only the triumphant Irish as being the best when it comes to IQ tests.
Curious as to why we're so incredibly excellent when it comes to intelligence? Check out these 5 easy secrets.
#5: You'd Better Believe We're Damn Practical.
We never had to deal with a huge colonial network expanding halfway across the globe -- we were too busy tending to our own unfortunate situation at home, and trying to find novel solutions to imposed problems, which left us mighty pratical.
Despite the incredible amount of hardships that have befallen us in the past, no one has come through like the Irish have. That practical sense has translated perfectly into our IQ--test dominance.
#4: All Our Super--Smart Types are Crammed in to Dublin.
While our famous Celtic Tiger has been hit plenty hard by a housing crisis and financial system that has done us no favours, a city like Dublin is still unique in the world -- we have a huge amount of highly intelligent people all concentrated there, working hard.
That's right -- the Irish are damn smart, so we are. We smoke through those IQ tests like most countries eat their breakfasts.
#3: Joyce, Beckett, Yeats... What Else Needs to be Said?
You think all that genius, amazing literature just came from nowhere? Hardly -- it came from our brains, our minds, our intelligence. There's a reason we still sport some of the best universities on the planet, despite our small size: we deserve them.
Yeah, even our lowliest people probably know enough lyrical songs to knock your socks off. So a little test -- for us, it's nothing.
#2: Operating From a Position of Disadvantage Always Helps.
We've got that extra drive that comes from being eternally underestimated, and we'll pull it out when you least expect it. What's this -- a basic IQ test? Sure, we'll take it -- and when your expectations are down, we'll come back and surprise the hell out you with a genius score.
#1: Our beer is better.
Seriously, Guiness is one of the only beers that actually improves the mental capacity of its drinkers. While that's not a scientific claim, we think it works, and we'll challenge you to an IQ test after 4 pints and still win, see?
