Top 10 Countries With the Most Intelligent People
The Top Ten
The first discoverers of the laws of algebra, geometry, calculus, the binary number system. The first people to successfully carry out cataract surgery, and plastic surgery. The highest paid ethnic group in the United States. Among the smartest employees (and employers) in the booming information technology industry. The only nation that was able to resist British occupation and achieve independence. Despite a relatively high amount of poverty due to a large population, over 600 million people live above the poverty line. The first creators of chess. The land of the Kama Sutra. Most Indians speak three or more languages, depending on their state and class. A country which actively undertakes cutting edge space reasearch. The country with the largest and most widespread film industry in the world. The creators of the best tasting (and some of the healthiest) food in the world.
Indians are the most civilized persona! It was Indians that originally found aeroplane, radio And many other technologies! But the British took their whole idea away and created the same things that Indians first created and they got the patent for it! We need not write wright brothers as the inventors of aeroplane and Marconi as the inventors of radio! Let the world know the TRUTH! INDIANS KNEW TECHNOLOGY BEFORE ANYONE ELSE BUT THEY DID NOT REVEAL IT THAT EASILY because THEY KNEW THAT TECHNOLOGY WOULD BECOME A BANE SOMEDAY, like how we sit and watch unwanted things in television and play games for hours! OBVIOUSLY INDIANS ARE THE MOST INTELLIGENT!
No one could be as challenging as Indians, we have best brains in the entire race, we are the originator of Science, Maths, Languages, teaching, preaching, GOD, agriculture, love and have always managed to keep pace with world with our brilliance.
Yap! I agree. They are the most intelligent people; especially in business. They always use 5-6 to gain more money if you are loaning some money on them. They can even sale some pirated DVD movies in much more affordable price. I use to buy some porn movies on them. It's really a high quality. They can even fix your cellphone on the spot without even having enough idea how to fix it. Very resourceful. No offense, people. Not very rich country but, very intelligent people.
Pakistani people are definitely intelligent.
Worlds brightest A-level student is a Pakistani.
Pakistan produced genius in all fields with limited resources it have.
As Bill Gates said that he would give the most difficult task to the laziest person because he would try to finish the task in short time with best solution. that's what I think about pakistani people. They have solution for every impossible thing. In short they are really intelligent
I would vote for japan. In terms of inventions and other latest electronics device, japan is the man for that. Although, India is claiming for being intelligent because of their previous achievements, which is by far, not acknowledge by other people... Some stolen stuff... Still, Japan is very undeniable country with lots of very intelligent people. It's either arts, music, science, martial arts, economy... Almost all of it. Name it, they have it. Best anime creator and games creator. Hentai is the best. Very interesting and exciting. What are you waiting for, people? Vote for japan.
Japan and China should be number 1 and 2 - Dvafan2
No, Japan makes the robots while China makes the pollution
I'm Filipino and I think that the Japanese are smart and modern.
They are genius...especially for GAMES!
There super smart
Common really this is obvious they invented kpop
Ya! Meh Asian and smart!
Why are they smart...because they don't spend money on research and development. They steal it from the most intelligent people on earth. That would be the USA? China is good at making fireworks. That's it.
Singapore is the smartest country. Hardworking students there make's them the best
This is a great place to live in
Yeah singapore is the best
Our education system is one of the top
Yes I think should be the first
The country of only 8 million people and yet it is one of the most successful countries in the world.
There is no doubt Israelis people are the one of the most intelligent, smart, clever, wise, sapient, sage people in all world!
'Great discoveries from great minds came from Canada. It's also the most peaceful country in the world.'
I wish I was Canadian. They don't have that much racism, Donald trump made America racist, help me please
Smarter then americans.
Germany has given us the one and only ALBERT EINSTEIN
You ever heard of the electron microscope? the jet engine? the diesel engine? Air to air guided missiles? Aspirin, the rotary engine, the first computer the interstate system, the car, the theory of nuclear fission and lets not forget that they basically ran NASA and put the united states on the moon. even the new smart phones computer chips were designed by germans. it goes on and on...
How can even India be number 1 while Germany number 10? Germany portrays the word "advanced" and "higly-technological"..have you seen the architectural buildings of Frankfurt before even putting Germany into this rank? Albert Einstein, one of the most intellectual-thinking scientists the history ever known is proved the us, Germans are the most advanced and intellectual people.
Germany has may people famous for creating and advancing life in its way of living. They may be known as american because they went there to teach and show their ways, but they all spoke German and are German.
First, the question of who has the most intelligent people in the world is a matter of population as well as intelligence. America has more geniuses than Singapore has people! Say goodbye to all the other small countries on this list. Countries are very often ranked based on their average intelligence with out regard to variation among ethnic groups. The United States taken as a whole has a high, but not world beating IQ. Drill down to various ethnic groups and you find the intelligence of those groups is much higher than the American average. The average for the dominant group is as high as any other group in the world. Add to that the fact that the smartest people in the world try to immigrate to America, and you have a very large sub-group of intelligent people. The intelligence data we have for China records information for only a few of the big urban area. Extrapolating that intelligence to the whole country is not valid. With hundreds of millions rural Chinese still living at ...more
I'm American, and I think my IQ score of 144 is much higher than a lot of other Americans. A lot of people in the United States of America are fat. I am not one of those people, I am quite skinny and am trying to GAIN weight. That's very rare to hear from someone in the United States of America. In the United States of America, kids get C's and/or D's. Very rarely do you hear an American kid is getting straight A's every year. Kids from the United States of America just go home, ignore homework, play video games on their gaming systems, and lay on the couch watching television, until it is time for them to sleep. Kids in the United States of America don't pay attention in school, and fail lots of things. Kids and even ADULTS hardly understand politics in the United States of America. Let's get away from the kids subject. Ever since all of the toys in the United States of America were made safe, the dumb person percentage went up very high. This is because in the older days, when I ...more
Saying American people are smart, is like asking someone "Can you stop having brain cancer? " - Fuziion
Were just fat, dumb bozos
Americans are between the most stupid people on Earth! They re-elected George Bush, still a very racist society in 21st century, they struggle with basic Algebra, and they know nothing about geography and the location of countries.
Sri Lankans are very intelligent. Sri lanka are very different..
Hello they are the smartest of all!?!
Most intelligent people in sl
The most people are educated.
No one in russia can read lol
And the most jealous country award goes to Russia
Since Russia is quite competitive, people take education very seriously. Having bad grades in school or uni is a no-go!
Lmao no. Indians are like super smart
China > China
This is not real.
Taiwan is really good at farting
It has the best teaching from government itself.
Although South Korea's and Finland's education systems are polar opposites, one or the other usually gets ranked at least in the top 10's and sometimes in the number 1 spot!
They are the best
I think its finland
Swiss are the smartest businessmen
Norwegians are smarter than Indians. - llykling
Highest average IQ from all western countries, Italy is full of cultural and architectural wonders and the level of the education system is very brilliant. Italy gave birth to many cultural and political doctrines. Not to mention all the great figures that changed the world!
It's just a matter of knowing history and culture to understand why this peninsula has the highest IQ average in the western world. A history full of geniuses in every field. A demanding education system and escellent traditional universities which are continually penalised by the modern rating system which places modernity and facilities above academia and knowledge.
Look any official "Average IQ by Country" chart and you will see that Italians have the highest IQ ratio (102) in the western countries
Wow. I'm a Vietnamese, and I'm really surprised it's up this high. Are we really that smart? - Goku02
They had a war with there own national bird, very intelligent people am I right?
Us Australians are really intelligent - micahisthebest
We aussies are smart and handsome/betiful
We invented wi-fi, the dual flush toilet, the aborigines invented the boomerang 10k years ago and we have Terence Tao, the smartest person alive currently (IQ 230). - coolguy101
The Compact Disk, the DVD, Blue Ray, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi. All invented in The Netherlands!
I agree who said "It has the smartest people in the world."
It has the smartest people in the world
Dude, this should be 1
Who likes them sorry
Well, they have a literacy rate of 100%. Does that make them smart? - JoeBoi
Uh... North Korea probably doesn't even have school lol
North Korea has lots of schools and education is practically mandatory. - PhoenixAura81
They may be smart, but I, like all Americans, hate North Korea
Malaysians have always been forced to learn everything and excel at everything as early as 4 years old - to survive the ever-changing education system of Malaysia, one should be an expert in adaptations. Such are Malaysians - while adapting to the changes, one must else be one with the harmonics that is the cultural diversity. It's actually a double-edge sword - one being the capability and the will to identify a definitive trait of oneself, while the other would wreck havoc to one's confidence due to the sheer amount of knowledge that needs to pass through to reach the doors of exploration. In my humble opinion, that's what make Malaysians part of an intellectual community, but also provides an abundant of wisdom hand in hand.
I am a Malaysian genius! So, I should be Number 1!
Proud to be malaysian
Students in Malaysia school is the most challenging since malaysia has indian, chinese and malay. And me as a malay student most chinese here are smarter
I live here
They are just lazy but smart enough
They invented lots of useful things: Cinema, cars etc..
A 2015 survey shows that French people have the 2nd highest IQ in the world, this list should be updated correctly.
There is an interesting study from the TIMSS, Pisa (Italy), data by Lynn and Vanhanen showing the IQ average by European countries, can compare with this list.
From someone that live in the country, and sure, the oldest generations made great inventions, I can't deny that.
but this is a mess, our justice is almost non-existant, you can't really count on it when needed, plus, since we get rid of the death sentence, the ones that get condamned for their crimes can make their judgement slower by any methods possible,
sentences could be for 5years, even if the crime could have deserved more.
politicians take randomn decisions, making the life harder for many.
unfortunatelly, even what the ancestors created, couldn't fix the country.
Iranian are the most intelligent people in the world
This country should be lower on the list. JUST PLEASE!
The smartest people are Iranian
How the hell is sweden a more intelligent than this country. You legit say that 43 percent of NASA workers are Iranians and the founder of ebay is also considered an Iranian.?
Filipinos can adapt any country or place, culture and whatever way of life, environment, situation, reality, and so on..and that makes genius. We may not be accepted or regarded in some cultures but we WILL and we CAN fit in no matter what.
They're really understand the lesson so fast.
Unlike other nations, we can adapt in ny situation and coup up whenever we are devastated.
There are smart Filipinos, only if the dumbed down media gives more appreciation to scientists, academics, academic contests winners in international competition, and IT people than celebrities.
What - yanzchenthebest
A Briton invented the World Wide Web -your voting using it - I rest my case no competition in inventions.
Darragh palmer is from there
Yeah, but the very nation it conquered got independence including India ( by every, I mean that no every but a few have not got I think)
2 words. William Shakespeare. Enough said.
Anders Celsius from sweden created the term celcius that is used in all contries exept for tree. Alfred Nobel was born in sweden he is the creator off the Nobel price he also created the first dinamite (explosiv)
Swedes read lots of book's.
We can master the most difficult situations with clever solutions, fast thinking and practical, Turkish people are very intelligent.
IT IS ONE OF THE POWER FULL COUNTRY LONG YEARS AGO IT CONQUERED China, HALF OF India, ETC
We are not 1st but we have potential to harvest the top countries' population with our leadershipness. We will be the shepherd of the world
Greece has a better education.
Greece should be the first as legends like aristotle and plato had born their
Greeks are nice, hospitable and intelligent people! Only I have positive memories from Greece.
Greek people are exceptionally intelligent, their mathematical skills are extraordinary therefore they deserve being in at least the top 20
It's people are highly educated with great scientific and technological development currently taking place in Polish Institutes.
Mathematics, programming and biotechnology are very high in Poland
Many intelligent people come from Poland.
I love romania it is the best only retarded gypsies ruin it for other people.
Many people consider Romania a bad country with stupid people but in reality our doctors and our smart people are leaving Romania because of it's poor condition.But they are still Romanian!
Second language spoke in Microsoft is Romanian
Romania is very low. Romanian people are too inteligents for most over here.
Itty Bitty Piggy in the market - Luckys
The Nigeria government is holding back some good talents in Nigeria corrupt and ethnicity is the major problem in that country, Fools and intelligent people living in Nigeria also. Some of them are really natural intelligent. I can't tell you if a country in Africa is really intelligent because Africa is lacking behinds while Europe, USA and Asia is growing everyday technologically, Africa is very far to rank as intelligent people until wonders start happening there like other continents.
We have much intelligence I feel this site although is not accurate because people vote on a position of what they think is the smartest "race" therefore we as Nigerians may be one of the top 5 smartest.
To me have the most intelligent people in the world.
Really, nepali people are very intelligent with their creativity
Beautiful country and kind hearted people
Nepalese students are very intelligent and have been performing exceptionally well in academics in many foreign countries. - Lunatic
Nepalese are the most intelligent people in the world after india.
nepalese students don't get any chance of exposing their inventions and knowledge because of poverty and supportless from government.
I think Bangladeshi people are smart in math
Armenia it the best!
The descendant of the phoenicians! They created ships, alphabet and so many things!
With only 3.5 million people (and only partially developed schooling (around big cities education is well developed)) and so many inventions that changed the world (electricity, pens,torpedos, speedometer...) I am convinced that Croats are very intelligent. They only move to other countries (USA, UK, Canada...) to do science and have a normal life becouse, unfortunatelly, Croatia is quite poor.
I know you're Pakistani
Well I have IQ of 132(i'm 13), And Mainly I really Think that there's a lot more Smarter than me In the country which I'm(Macedonia) And Is also doing quietly well actually. And Due to Its Standards, Very Intelligent People are leaving for High itself demands.
I can say that many smart people that are in this country are leaving due to its High Poverty Levels.. Still when they leave it really hurts me, but still they are considered Macedonians still!
