Does IQ really matter in the long run? I've known some folks who are MENSA members, which is an organization for people with high IQs. Their life is not any better than others and some of them can't even hold down a steady job for long.

Yes. But most provinces do not have that problem, as shown in the table. So data from those provinces directly reveals something more. Understand, General Cannot-see-obvious?

It is sometimes required, but not sufficient.
Low IQ individuals have no chance to succeed in some fields, such as science, but one has to be strong in many aspects to really exceed.

2.But if there is, there are probably from Guangdong, which only has an average IQ of 100, which is average not high.
1.There are Chinese people everywhere in the world, especially where they can make money.
Why would you even think there are no Chinese people in the the Netherlands

2.No, i also met Chinese people from Beijing, Tianjin, Shandong, Jiangsu, Shanghai, Zhejiang, Sichuan, Yunnan.

Over the last few years, most of the more recent Chinese immigrants I met in LA and SF were from in or near Shanghai or Beijing, rather than Guangdong, though that's where a massive chunk of older immigrants were from.

Surprisingly, I only met maybe two or three people from Guangzhou in the US, in the months leading to my departure.

The gist of the study is just another of many efforts to show the superiority of the Chinese.

No, it was a study within China and nobody really brought it to international audience officially.
The purpose of this study is to show how lack of iodine affects children's IQ, not what you said.

BTW, does the study make a distinction between rural children and urban children? I would guest that most of the children tested in Beijing and Shanghai are from urban areas.

There are also individuals with high IQ's who have poor educations. I'm not sure how the IQ tests in China are, but in the US, but I'd assume they are similar: they attempt to test logic, problem-solving, and comprehension without resorting to methodology learned in a classroom.
