        Asian historical IQ would probably be best measured in centuries, not ten or so measly decades.

        China and Korea introduced mandatory universal examinations for government-related careers incredibly early as part of their Confucian craze. That would probably elevate their IQ scores pretty high for 600 AD-1500 standards

                seems like that was for specialist positions. still basically testing crystallized knowledge, not intelligence, although being able to acquire and reproduce crystallized knowledge requires some intelligence.

        It is genetics and the flynn effect is turning out to be BS.
        >That same year [1891], Reverend John Ross praised the "high" intellectual character of the Chinese and suggested that the intelligence of the Chinese peasantry exceeded that of any peasantry elsewhere. He lavished praise on "the greatness of service done her by her excellent education."
        Sadly as intelligent as chink peasants were, the mandarins held not a candle to the European elite since their IQ distribution is peak midwit.

    While we're at the topic, while looking up the reasons for OP (not OP), I began thinking why Asians look and appear so feminine but have a quite masculine mental profile. First, their spatial IQ is significantly higher than their verbal, so they're more systematizing, regardless of if they grew up with hanzi. Second, they've historically been some of the most pragmatic people around, resorting to cannibalism and other inhumane shit. They have less empathy and are less spiritual. They have higher rates of autism, and there's the extreme male theory. And yet, they look the most feminine and neotenous out of anyone on Earth. How does this dichotomy even make sense? Has anyone discussed this? I've looked up their T levels, nothing special. 2d:4d ratio appears normal. The only difference is that they bald much less than anyone else so my theory is they literally lack the required DHT during puberty to develop secondary sexual characteristics. But that wouldn't quite explain why their women are so flat either.

      Asians are very superstitious, they just don't follow organized religions and that's the result of them being far away from the religious epicenter of the world (the Middle East) and living in nation-states much earlier (the monarch/state stomp down hard on religion and religious movements that threatened the status quo)

        True but I think the rest still applies.

        Nope, not even before Christianity arrived. Maybe the Holocaust.

        The Middle East isn't the only source of organized religion. India produced many belief systems like Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, and Sikhism.

      Asians are the most domesticated race. All of the features and characteristic are in line with domestication: Reduced aggression, softer skull features, Flattened facial projection, juvenility, slower to mature, less sexual dimorphic, etc .
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Self-domestication

      As for the reason why. I believe they have self-domesticate themselves by living in agricultural society for much longer than other humans groups

        Interesting explanation. What about mongoloids who aren't agricultural? Manchus, Mongols, other Siberians, native Americans, etc. Besides, other people were earlier than them, except if we're talking about neolithic eating habits.
        And how does this work with their psychometrics as described? If they neotenized I'd expect a reduction in mental rotation abilities, but they're still the best at those with the largest crania proportionally. I also see a massive fascination among east asians like Japanese and Chinese with gore (look up ero guro) and they led the bloodiest, cruelest wars for the most part. To me it seems like they combine outward neoteny with the most wretched potential for aggression and cruelty inside. Could it be they have high pre-natal testosterone leading to these characteristics but just less maturation?

          kids are much more cruel than adults and often times they aren't aware of it. You already know they have higher autism rates so that plays a part as well.
          >Manchus, Mongols
          They were literally agriculturalists before adopting pastoralism due to climate change, there's a reason why they are lactose intolerant despite being nomads. Look it up, look up the Liao river civilization and the early Turks as well
          >Siberians & native Americans
          These people are different and has been genetically proven to be so, although they do share some common ancestor with Mongoloid, native Americans aren't as domesticated as asians are and they show corresponding traits of being less domesticated. Indio being more violent is a good example

      Cannibalism has been recorded in European history too, as recently as the 1940s. East Asians do have a tradition of spirituality and religion BTW. It's just less prominent in some places nowadays since China is an atheist state.

      This is all wrong. East Asians do not have the most neotenous/gracile (you're conflating the two) features, West Africans do. This despite not having flattened faces which is just one of the features you're after.
      Many East Asians get plastic surgery to achieve a more neotenous appearance and this, along with cherry-picking, skews your perspective. Koreans, for example, have notoriously square skulls with massive jaws but jaw reducing surgery is very common. Asians do not have soft skull features.

      To the other points:
      1. Higher rate of autism is more likely due to advanced maternal age. That's why it's increasing in the west as well.
      2. They bald less because they have thicker, denser hair and thus have more to lose, and likely have a lower incidence of genes coding for DHT sensitive hair follicles. As you said, they have normal testosterone.
      3. They are not "domesticated" or less aggressive, this is a recent stereotype. Chinese history is replete with constant peasant rebellions and large-scale violence. You'd have to be historically illiterate to think chinks are genetically predisposed to servility.

      inb4 "ok chang". I'm 100% white european and personally dislike Chinamen. I simply can't tolerate this midwit bullshit.

          Round faces, round jaws, large cranium size, little to no brow ridge. Although some have high prognathism they do generally have flat facial features.
          Look up some Senegalese people and compare them to Australian Aborigines (among the most robust and least neotenic people) and it's quite obvious.

            That sounds basically like East Asians.
            But to be fair their jaws can be mind blowing and they shouldn't be shaving it off, though they aren't that tall. What fucks them and makes them look feminine regardless is a non-existent brow ridge. That's a death sentence, no idea why they selected for it.

              Northern Chinese and Koreans average like 5' 10" nowadays. The younger generations at least.

    They have a stronger academic culture there. Plus they have very strong family units which reinforce the cultural expection to perform well academically. But mostly I think it's genetic.

    i'm not convinced that intelligence is as exclusively genetic as LULZ says it is.

    brains are neural nets, and neural nets can be trained. that's what a culture does, it trains human neural nets. a culture is basically a compression scheme for transmitting certain training patterns. cultures themselves coevolve with material and economic conditions in a feedback loop. some societies evolve to be more militarily effective than others, and these tend to expand, spreading their characteristics. human history is basically a stochastic, adversarial process for producing cultures that have propagative traits. these cultures train people in certain ways.

    modern people are very different from people of the past, despite having comparable genetics. this is because non-genetic factors contribute significantly to human character.
