Top 10 Countries With the Most Intelligent People

The Top Ten

1 India India India, officially the Republic of India, is a country in South Asia. It is the seventh-largest country by area, the second-most populous country (with over 1.2 billion people), and the most populous democracy in the world.

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.

They are smart.

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

Irrelevant ways to measure intelligence. There's a huge per capita problem. - DylannRoof

3rd place?! Sorry but Americans are not that intelligent. They boat about NASA not knowing majority of NASA consist of people from other countries. Almost all the scientific achievements are accomplished by foreigners. Don't believe? Go and research!

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.

"All the "greats" were German."

Germany has had (and still do.) some of the most prominent scientists and minds this millennium. Albrecht Durer, Johannes Kepler, Albert Einstein, Fritz Haber. There are literally a million more Germans I can list here.

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.
