Low childhood IQ scores linked to future bigotry
Brock University in Ontario did a study over decades in which researchers gave IQ tests to 15,000 kids aged 10 and 11 years old, then retested them when they were 33 [“ We may be getting smarter”, April 26–May 3]. They found that the people who scored low on the tests in childhood grew up more likely to develop prejudiced attitudes and socially conservative political beliefs later on in life. I wonder what Stephen Harper’s IQ is?
