Sunday lecture: Ancestry in the Americas: a meta-analysis

 

Traditionally, British Sundays were a day of repose, dedicated to the minority who wished to go to church, on whose behalf the godless majority forswore pleasure, and dedicated themselves to uplifting literature and improving healthy walks. Mostly, it rained, and Monday was a relief.

For your proper entertainment, here is Emil himself, in full flow.

Biogeographic Ancestry and Socioeconomic Outcomes in the Americas: a Meta-analysis

Speaker: Emil O. W. Kirkegaard

Co-authors: John Fuerst

A meta-analysis of American studies reporting associations between socioeconomic outcomes (S outcomes) and biogeographic ancestry (BGA) was conducted. 41 studies yielded a total of 167 datapoints and 57 non-overlapping effect sizes. European BGA was found to be positively associated with S outcomes r = .16 [95% CI: .12 to .20, K=23, N=20,837], while both Amerindian and African BGA was negatively so, -.12 [-.18 to -.06, K=17, N=15,870] and -.10 [-.16 to -.04, K=17, N=24,142], respectively. There was considerable cross-study variation in effect sizes (mean I2=90%), but there were too few datapoints to permit credible moderator analysis. Implications for future studies are discussed.

 

Here is the full live version, in only 19 minutes, because Emil talks fast or, as I call it, “at normal speed”:

Much, much better than the box set you were thinking of watching.

  1. Advantageous psychological and cognitive traits of the individuals is not enough to be conclusive to the [potentially progressive] well being of a nation BUT how this individuals interact one each other and how efficient is the absolute meritocracy, where the RIGHT individuals possessed with right trait-combinations to the certain profession or function, are discovered and catapulted in record-time to their ideally correct functions.

    In societies where subjective and vague meritocratic system decide via ''half luck half objectivity'' who will occupy certain professions or functions, we see many wrongly alocated people, just like a lot of unethical academics, in all ideological spectrum, from the right (proto-psychopaths) to the left (sub-pathological liars).

    If some individual become easily so good in certain task why she/he can't be directly alocated to their ideal task*

    Even Brazil that is so white-[amerindian]-black mixed is visualizable at naked eye that ''purer'' blacks tends to display with more frequency sociopathic trends in their behavior and lower cognitive capacity.

    PAX.

      You don't seem cognizant of the story of the children and the naked Emperor.
      There's no sin as unforgivable as to see what one's eyes see.
      That is, having a defective super-Ego-operated filter between perception, understanding, and consciousness.

      Or, as humanity has more briefly named it, to be "insane".

      {On the matter of cognitive capacity. Laziness plays a cardinal role too. Or are we expected you can't learn that it is "blacks tend" and not "blacks tends"?
      Tell another one!}

      ''You don't seem cognizant of the story of the children and the naked Emperor.''

      I know very well, hihihihihihi

      I was one the first guy that used this literary metaphor here in hbd-s-phere in the Robert Lindsay blog.


      ''There's no sin as unforgivable as to see what one's eyes see.

      Brain is like the (invariably) evil stepmother of the (our) self-awareness, kind, pure and sucker Snow White.

      Some selfes are not aware enough to fight back against brain-dictatorship/ evil stepmother.


      ''{On the matter of cognitive capacity. Laziness plays a cardinal role too. Or are we expected you can't learn that it is "blacks tend" and not "blacks tends"?
      Tell another one!}''

      people who are pretty concerned about certain FRIVOLOUS cognitive skills like grammar TENDS to be frivoulopoulos.

      laziness**

      yes, i'm just like a proto-parasite but with idealistic/mutualistic morality, ;)

    The very idea of such an endeavour is so heretical that Kirkegaard, Fuerst, and I guess even you Dr. Thompson, are at risk of being hereticated.

    Good luck to all.
