Love A.D.D.erall

At 21 they diagnosed me with AD/HD & gave me smart pills. My grades shot up & my future brightened & some said I was better. But I am numb inside of this drug. People I love become distant strangers sometimes, so proud of me for victories I didn’t earn. How do I tell them I am not what I do or have done. I’ll never be happy on this drug, but I’ll never be successful without it. If only I could Love Adderall.

Which Country Contains the Most Intelligent People in the World?

(Note: Please explore my other musings on this question, which can be found here, and here.)

Instead of answering this question, I’m going to tell you why it’s a stupid one. There is no such thing as a universal intelligence that exists across all societies.

Many people think of IQ (which stands for “intelligence quotient”) as the best way to measure a person’s intelligence. The IQ was originally created in France, and was later modified in Germany and the United States. Since these are all developed countries, the IQ only measures forms of intelligence that are valued in developed countries. Specifically, it measures concentration, memory, verbal skills, and mathematical aptitude. Indeed, the most successful people in the U.S. are those who concentrate in school, memorize information, and score well on their SATs. These are the people who get into the best colleges and eventually get the best jobs. We therefore come to see them as intelligent.

But how useful are American forms of “intelligence” in starving nations like Somalia or Bangladesh? Having a large vocabulary or being good at math won’t get you hired if there are no jobs to compete for in the first place. The people who are intelligent in those countries are the ones who simply know how to survive. That presumably requires a set of skills that aren’t measured by the westernized IQ testsuch as: resilience, instinctual grit, physical toughness, etc. If you placed a Harvard graduate in the middle of the Sahara with no food or water, he wouldn’t be “intelligent” enough to survive. At the same time, the savviest people in the undeveloped world might not even know how to read, and does, wouldn’t be considered “intelligent” by Western standards.

So, which country contains the most intelligent people in the world? That depends on where you ask the question, because the “intelligent” people in Haiti have nothing in common with the “intelligent” people on Long Island. Likewise, we A.D.D.ers need to be careful not to fall into a trap of feeling unintelligent simply because we excel in different ways than most people.

Dear all. First let us know what is the definition of intelligence. For me this is the best : A very general mental capability that, among other things, involves the ability to reason, plan, solve problems, think abstractly, comprehend complex ideas, learn quickly and learn from experience. It is not merely book learning, a narrow academic skill, or test-taking smarts. Rather, it reflects a broader and deeper capability for comprehending our surroundings — “catching on”, “making sense” of things, or “figuring out” what to do.I do agree with 3/4 of what our friend have written. I don’t really agree that all people have the same intelligence. First there are different types of intelligence. You may be intelligent in numbers, but not in getting a date with a girl. Besides, Individuals differ from one another in their ability to understand complex ideas, to adapt effectively to the environment, to learn from experience, to engage in various forms of reasoning, [and] to overcome obstacles by taking thought. That is the reason why I believe some people are of course more intelligent than others. If the Theorie of our friend above is correct then I need him to explain to me why England colonized Nigeria and not the contrary. Why Education, school, books, technologies have mostly started in Europe not in Africa. Why after 200 years of colonization an African contractor cannot construct sanitary sewers although he should be gaining experience from those professional people. We should differ between Human rights and intelligence. People are all equal in rights and society but not in intelligence.
At least this is my opinion. thanks

Arybhatta was from Pataliputra in Pune , India . The No’s 1 to 9 where already in use for 500 years before his time . The Decimal system we use today is a perfect alpha-numeric system based on Sanskrit ,Pali & Devanagri symbols . Zero was invented by Aryabhatta as a solution to calculating the no of flowers needed for prayers at a temple . The oldest inscription can still be found at the temple. It is accepted that there are many ancient civilizations that have independently evolved methods used today , however India- with Vedic maths , and systems of philosophy reached the age of reason on the banks of the Ganges before any other Nation . The Indus was the 1st human city civilization, use of bitumen in bathing pools, accuracy of geometry, harvesting of cotton and firing of bricks in kilns , use of double storey dwellings together with flush toilets make this the most advanced city of the ancient world , from that development into the 1930’s 2 british surgeons recorded the observation of teh rec-construction of a man’s nose- rinoplasty ! in the British jounel of medicine – this resuled in plastic surgery being born . Hence India has made a substantial contribution to the world from her lofty philosophies, Buddhism, Gandhi,and her spicees, rice was first harvested in India ! amongst many other inventions many of which are only being discovered now as submerged cities are given a chance to tell their stories . However in a global society I feel all nations and all people have a role to play in the new world order & much depends upon the individual desiring someting so much that all effort is out into that activity .

Pakistan does not exist ! it was carved out of India , as was Aghanistan from the period of the Mauryan empire and prior [ref. Mahabharatta, King of Gandhar -modern name Kandhar] all these lands from Sri Lanka to Iran all fell under the influence of Hinduism, Jinna was a crook that fell for Britain’s divide and conquer routine. Pakistan has no economy yet when India tests her nuclear bombs the Pakis respond with a feeble Atom bomb – the same used in WW2 ! Yet India’s bombs are hydrogen based ! . Paksitan keeps trying to de-stabilise the Indian economy with muslim terrorist groups and has beencausing shit in Kashmir for over 40 years ! . The adevent of the muslim in the Indian-subcontinet is a complex one especially since there was no CNN to report the atrocities committed by Babar and other moghul kings towards hindus , kashmir was a hindu kingdom yet overnight the population became majority muslim ! . You cannot make a statemnet that because one clever Paki was able to fix an item of yours that all paki’s are smart , the only thing these people are smart at is pirating dvd’s and pushing drugs into the world . If pakistan ceased to exist and become part of India again the economic boom would be phenomenal , I have no doubt that they are a people with fantastic potential after all before independence from India they where all considered Indian ! hence the potential to be defined as intelligent lies with the individual and the political systems in place that allow that individual to reach his/her potential . All Nations have great minds and great people it is Governments that sometimes prevent this ability from being realised .

I’m sorry, we all know indians are more intelligent ones out of the south asians. All of the indians I know are really intelligent and have proffessional jobs yet the pakistani’s barely get into university on good courses. BBC made a report about this on their website check it out. A TV programme also came on about immigrants and how hard working indians are and even though people from the neighbouring country (pakistan) were immigrating, they lacked alot of intelligence and more than 55% of all pakistanis were on benefits. less than 10% indians were on benefits, so u can’t say pakistanis are more intelligent than indians.

most of pakistanis which immigrated to uk were the least intelligent of the people of pakistan, because they had nothing better to do in pakistan. however the indians who immigrated from india and from kenya etc were the most intelligent people (i.e. the cream of the crop) out of all the indians. and that my friend means that the tv programme you have been watching was only based on the immigrants in the uk.

hi everyone,i am from India and i am putting this up not show that we are most intelligent people on earth etc because there exist no such thing like that. As the post concludes anyone who could make use of all resources available and circumstances endured but still survive in a competitive world has to be considered intelligent. But that doesn’t mean i will go on reading anything you people have to say about my country.
so lets now begin :
Your “great America” wouldn’t have been discovered by Columbus if he hadn’t been looking for India because obviously he had heard of its great wealth and wanted to have his own share but how stupid ( an american ) he was to presume America as India haha
My country is no s### H### as you called it. Yes we are over populous because people from all around world have come here and settled . We were just a bunch of people but no mughals , British, Portuguese,Egyptian even chinese wanted to have their share from our country and found it so great that most of them settled here . My country is so great to have embraced all of them. And most of them never left. I had in my college many students whose ancestors were either British or Mughal .
Most people who find job in US/UK are hired by company … if your own country people think of hiring indians at same cost than hiring you guys ..its not our mistake…
About 80% of students studying in US/UK/Singapore/Germany have scholarships and end up with bright jobs ( ohh is it disheartening)
Pakistan being a neighbouring country …i have nothing to say because it would have still been our part ..or we theirs …had west not infused hatred among us….a thing in which western guys are always on top.
we have slums and poverty but we still love our country for it doesn’t hide it from the world unlike west…which considers poor not being part of their country or cultute … like as if you guys haven’t seen a single poor in your own country in your entire life… huhn..
As of religion , we have hindus,muslims,christans,jews,Buddhists , Sindhis…. everyone …ever readyy to help any person in need…
if we are noone that important …why is your US govt or president obsessed with us …be it our nuclear deal or world trade or defence or monetray matters…
last and not least just because you use Fuck word often and think of sex …all the time doesn’t entitle you being as intelligent or first world country as you call yourself…
although yes ..we have a lot to learn from other people like Japanese…who are focussed and hardworking but nothing from America i guess….what is after all there to learn…oh have i learnt belittling others…well yeah!!! sometimes you have to pay back in same coin…

I thought intelligence has to do with the ability of understanding, through reading, listening and other forms. An intelligent person can understand people, issues and cultures that are completely different from his/her own background. He/she thinks that is okay, and often find that he/she knows too little, after spending lots of time studying (while average people spend all their lives eating, sleeping, working, looking for women/men, nursing children, sporting, etc.).

A not-so-intelligent person normally don’t like learning new things (and don’t know how, and don’t think too much or too deep). He/she often has difficulties in reading, thus can hardly understand or agree that there are people in this world that are completely different, and those people are either wrong or evil! Unfortunately, these people deny there are people in this world that are much more intellegent than themselves. Unfortunately these people account the most in today’s population.

IQ has not much to do with ability of survival. Higher IQ does not earn you more money if you don’t work in intellectual area in a civilized country. However, higher IQ often guide you through tough time in life, and help you stay away from dangerous water. In another word, higher IQ is the key to the door of wisdom.

People with higher IQ certainly has better chance to survive, unless he/she insists doing the right thing and die, than doing shameful and bad things and live. The smart people choose the latter.

Maybe the most intellegent countries in the world, are countries with the highest propotion of population who loves to read, learn, think, and not so crazy about power and materials things.

  Voorhees wrote @

Isabella Chambell-

It’s odd that on the one hand you claim intelligence is all about the ability to understand other cultures, and on the other hand you argue that intelligence is measured in terms of reading comprehension and has nothing to do with survival. With due respect, your own response demonstrates a lack of both reading comprehension and understanding of other cultures. Please explain how literary aptitude is helpful to someone in Africa. You seem utterly confused. Good day.

  James Alonzo wrote @

There is a problem with the article. First and foremost, a clear definition of intelligence is non-existent. I agree to some extent that intelligence can be implicitly defined in terms of IQ test and stuffs. But, we cannot just dismiss a widely accepted standard if we ourselves don’t give a more acceptable one. For example, we can’t just say that the sun is brighter than the other stars if we don’t have a general and most acceptable standard of light. Since there’s no universal definition of intelligence to begin with, simply we can’t answer the question: Which Country Contains the Most Intelligent People in the World? Obviously, we cannot compare because we aren’t sure if what we are defending is a form of intelligent or not. Over the years, there is a substantial contention of the definition of intelligence, talent and skill. There’s a clear cut confusion of such. So how can we draw the line? the answer is purely simple. The definition is always subjective. A Harvard alumnus like Obama is considered as intelligent (at least based on accolades and social recognition) but not in the eyes of musicians or math wizards. In the end, we go back to the confusion of how we label a person intelligent. What is our standard? If there is, is it universal? So if it’s not universal, how can we compare and how can we justify our conclusive comparison on our assertions?

But assuming that there is an acceptable standard of intelligence and is widely used in today’s world i.e. the IQ test, can we automatically dismiss non-western criteria of intelligence as what the author has asserted,? The answer is no. We cannot do so because the very concept of intelligence is merely based on the acceptability of a certain social sphere. Attending school is a factor of intelligence in the developed world and elsewhere except societies who do not have enough access. Can we consider a fisherman intelligent, well of course not in an academic perspective? The answer is potentially yes, as long as someone believe that the way he performs is beyond the average skill and the imposition of mental abilities is certainly beyond the normal.

Let’s engage the example in the Sahara desert that a Harvard student cannot possibly withstand the rigor of survival once you put him there. First of, what is the reason why the Harvard student cannot survive in such an extreme environment. Clearly, it doesn’t mean that if you are a student of a prestigious university i.e. Harvard, Oxford or what not, you cannot survive in Sahara or Gobi. Most likely, a student there can be more of a strategist and have been in tough times reckoning of how to solve a problem. Even if you fail to survive there, it doesn’t mean that your stupid. To die in an extreme situation is not stupidity. wrote @

I am also part of this world as you all are, for me the intelligence is something which comes with experience as perfection comes from practice. And our capability to learn faster is our intelligence.
God is he who created us. And certainly there is a logic behind it, which we all need to find it one day to achieve the eternity.
And with whatsoever experiences of our daily life we everyday learn something new.Only thing is like that the sooner we take the lesson the better,it will reduce our sufferings. Otherwise same situations would be repeated in our life’s as in the past so that we can learn what God and time wants us to learn and only then it can promote us to the next level.
And ultimately we all have to reach to a point where we can decode the message from God , which he gave to us by creating us and my making the circumstances and situations that we face in our life’s.
Finally we all will find the answer to our own question by our own intelligence. The more we get closer to solving the puzzle of our own life’s , the more intelligent we become.

All the best to everyone..

Well, it’s really some tough competition here but, I think Pakistanis are the most intelligent people.

Who’s the boy to get most As in GCSE exams in a country with such limited resources? A Pakistani. Yes. With over 20 As.

Pakistani people are one of the most neglected nations and still they manage to stand up. They are one of the few nations with nuclear technology even though, they have limited resources.

Pakistani people took to streets when the judiciary there was hijacked by a dictator and though he tried his best to block the roads (with huge containers of rice, etc.), they didn’t hold back and successfully freed justice.

Pakistan’s Army is one of the most skillful in the world and Air Force Pilots are considered amongst the top too. Thanks to their never say die attitude as well as quickest reaction time to a situation.

The media in Pakistan is not so strong and information is scarce. Even then, Pakistanis manage to adopt to the changing trends, etc very quickly once they are aware of it.

Lastly, I am a Pakistani forever living in Pakistan. I write a blog about my favourite football club. The links up there.

Dear Friends,

Intelligence advantage has a threshold. It means that beyond a certain level, IQ becomes immaterial.

It’s like height of a basket ball player. Good players with height above 6feet have advantage. So, it doesnt really matter if you are 6’4” or 6’6”. But beyond that it fails to be an advantage, like being 7′ has relatively no advantage over others.

So, it would be good to have intelligence level beoynd an average point and not reach the peak point. Extremely high intelligence also comes with it’s own bag of disadvantages like poor emotional and social skill.

Intelligence has many dimensions like IQ,Emotional Intelligence(read book by daniel Goleman) . Some ppl have intelligence dimension in art like drawing, music etc. That is also a form of intelligence. Other set of people are emotionally and socially intelligent- they know who to handle themselves in a group.

There is also a group dimension to intelligence.” How intelligent is a group of people?” is a question to be answered. Individually a person might be extremely intelligent, but when he enters a group of equally skilled people, how efficient and effective is that group? or how good is the group skill? these are questions we have to answer because we live in a world where team work rules. Most modern inventions like micro-processor, Atom Bomb- all were a result of group work.

Country wise intelligence is dependent on many factors which we do not know. But on the whole if you have international experience, you find differences in many intelligence dimensions. We certainly can’t compare.For instance, some ppl think asian are good at math- for them math is an intelligence measure – but it is only one dimension

If you consider individual intelligence, i think Indians are better off. But in terms of team work, team intelligence, japaneese are the best.

Intelligence also need hard work to fortify the advantage you have- effort also plays an important role.

In short it doesn’t really matter if you happened to be the most intelligent person- it’s like telling that the tallest man in the world is the best basket ball player; we know tats not true

I think we should leave aside this question of most intelligent people. We live in a world where success is random and depends random advantages/ skills/opportunities. (Read Black Swan)

Jesus said ” let he who is greatest among you serve you”
Let the most intelligent people have the humility to remain silent about their skills

God.. it took about an hour to go through all these comments but surprisingly I immensely enjoyed both the article and and comments by people on this. In addition these hot words from people of india and pakistan left me laughing loud. At one point I felt behind all these claiming and shouting on each other, there is something in this emotion which reminds you the innocent childishness of little kids. End of the day – everyone trying their best to prove what they believe is the best. And i believe that how human beings are created to most cases.

Now in terms of intelligence, my own theory changes every other day. For example at one point of life I found people asscociated with scientific subjects and who are quite on top of their fields are highly intelligent. And i thought why I think they are intelligent than me? I fanswered myself – because they do what you cant do but you wish to do – using their superior than me mental abilty! And i was quite satisfied with my answer. But then I realised one thing – at any point of any time there was not any human being who excelled in all known fields of activities known to human beings and that left one or more fields for someone else to overtake him/her. Even if there was such people or if there would be, these cases will be exceptionally distinct and I am sure these people could come from any parts of the world! Intelligence does not belong to any specific place…. its universal!

And one point to the person who tried to associate intelligence with colonization. Let me say something very basic. Colonization by british or other nations (please dont be offended if you are of these nationals) towards other parts of the world has nothing to do with intelligence! Think about the colonzation of india by british emperor! They went there with a big, friendly smile on face and asked the people of the land to give permission to stay, do business and so on. the native people received them not with hostiltiy but with warm, friendly gesture. And how the colonial people paid the price of that friendship? Well…. you better read some history! But anyway… what I am trying to mean is – when you define intelligence I believe it should also include the term – ability to think towards the universal goodness! The reason I am sayign this is because with your wicked ability you might be able to destroy the world in a second but with that abilty/intelligence you are not serving anything towards the humanity and its not much of use for anyone! So whats the point of having that intelligence? Ahh…if you think being able to destroy anything in a sophisticated way is a parameter of intelligent people, then its different case!

Now before I finish .. let me request a small thing to my indian and pakistani friends. As you have read my comments and as I can see you guys are extremely busy fighting with each other, just when you take a break from the battle..please shout with your loudest voice – ” Neither me nor the people I am fighting are the most intelligent! The most intelligents are the one over ther who are having fun watching us fighting! ”

Does it make sense? I am kinda hoping it doesnt! LOL!!

First, let me ask, who’s the DUMB to write this post about intelligence? Do you even know about the nations you mentioned in your post? I don’t know much about Somalia. But Bangladesh is NOT a starving nation. I know because I’m a Bangladeshi. It’s true that we’re poor, very poor. But still, NO ONE dies of hunger there. Not since 1972 at least, and you wrote this in 2007……..c’mon! We have too many problems; but fortunately we have enough people with good hearts to help the poors in hard times. We’re not physically tough……very weak indeed. If you place a common Bangladeshi guy and a common Harvard graduate in the middle of Sahara, the Bangladeshi guy would die first, trust me!

About intelligence of nations, I also think it’s an useless debate. But I don’t agree with your geographical classification of intelligence. You think people from the developed countries are better at maths and all than those from underdeveloped ones! What bubble you are living in!? Go compare your math knowledge with a south-indian guy, you’ll be ashamed!

People rose a very legitimate question- if Indians and Pakistanis are so intelligent than why can’t they develope? I’ll tell you why. People in this subcontinent (India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh) are indeed very intelligent and that’s why we can’t prosper. We’re smart, and we’re always busy smarting out each other. We do NOT usually use our intelligent for good things.

well I think that moroccans are the most intelligent people in world. Historically speaking, the moroccan culture is a mixture of a lot of civilisations and they are of different races. This diversity has a big influence on their way of thinking, way of dealing with problems and crisis. Hence they are well experienced. Concerning their high levels of poverty, ignorance, unemployment.and so on, they use their potentials in negative situations and their unapropriate atmosphere doest not help them to discover their intelligence and explose their natural abilities and energies. What impoves that is that moroccan are talented in many parts of the world and in different sector.. What is important is that moroccan are not sufferning of something which prevents them of develepment and progress. So if there is a well there is a way, I mean if they have a spirit of hardworking and reading, they easily will be one of the best countries in the world.

Why look stupid trying to call a country intelligent or otherwise. And just a reply to the post by the human”indiansarecrapheads”….yeah we Indians ain’t human…we are superhuman.
People…however intelligent, caustic, spiteful and intolerant we may get, we all remain human(or superhuman). Let us not forget that and so continue to be…gracefully and INTELLIGENTLY!!
