HBD: Dumb Conservatives?

March 31, 2011

Along with the smart-but-nerdy suggestion of some HBD commenters goes the smart-and-liberal (or dumb-and-conservative) theory. At its simplest, this theory postulates that because liberals and liberal ideas control the culture, that must be due to the greater brains of liberals.

HBD: Smart but Nerdy?

March 30, 2011

A persistent theme (or is it a theme from a persistent blogger?) of HBDsphere is that higher IQ means less charisma (a nerdish personality).

HBD: If You’re So Smart. . .

March 28, 2011

Not so much eventually, but usually instantly, discussions of HBD will cross the topic of intelligence or IQ.

I admit it, I feel somewhat guilty and ashamed. Ashamed, for feeding the ridiculous Internet craze that was Rebecca Black (with not one, but two posts); guilty for possibly lowering my readers’ IQ in the process.
