Gone Fishin’

I’ll be away for the next week. Have fun everyone! I’ve temporarily enabled comment moderation for all comments. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

I’ll be completely incommunicado, so I hope everyone out there in the world behaves. Try not to destroy too much while I’m away. 🙂

    Hello Jayman. I would love to see your take on some of the things that present challenges to the validity of IQ as a construct and genetic determinism as more important that environmental determinism. For example, the only references that I could find to stereotype threat via a google search of this blog were from other people in comments a couple of times. It seems like stereotype threat has proven that IQ is a flimsy construct for measuring the intelligence of stereotyped peoples.

    Also, Turkheimer (2003) showed that the heritability of IQ is quite low for impoverished people.
