Race and IQ

Dialog in the Eric Allen Bell Facebook:


My answer to this question is:

"Intelligence" is considered by IQ tests as the ability to solving concrete problems. But there is another definition of intelligence, that is "expansion of perception." This is due to the coexistence of two minds: the thinking mind and the perceptive mind. So, a mad scientist could overcome these tests easily while living a crazy life, while the Buddha could fail on them although having the deepest wisdom of the world. So these tests are revealing that, on the one hand, we are not different from other animals and suffer the same pressures and evolutionary responses, but on the other hand, we also have to consider the existence of the other - non measurable - intelligence.

It is important to consider the following:
technological-concrete -practical intelligence becomes destructive if the other intelligence (the sensitive intelligence, perceptive) is not present .
That's the intelligence that Gautama Buddha and Jiddu Krishnamurti talked about

And that is exactly what is currently happening in the world.

Sensitive intelligence does not seem be hereditary and if it is, then heredity plays a minor role in it. A map of sensitive intelligence could be completely different from IQ maps, because among its qualities is the relationship a person has with nature. For example, India would have a "sensible quotient" very, very high compared to other countries.
And there would be many more surprises like this.
