“Dumb Blonde” Myth is Dispelled by Scientists
The results of a recent survey of American scientists showed that intellectual discrimination based on hair color is nothing but a myth and "dumb blonde" stereotype was totally dispelled. The average IQ of blondes is even higher than in other women with a different hair color.
Ohio State University staff conducted an experiment involving 10 878 women aged 14-21 years. All volunteers were tested by the Pentagon program designed for beginners selection. IQ level was calculated on the basis of the wealth of vocabulary, comprehension of test content, performing of mathematical tasks and the ability to think analytically.The experimental results showed that:the average IQ in blondes is 103.2 the average IQ in brown-haired women - 102.7 the average IQ at brunettes - 101.2 the average IQ in red ladies - 100.5It was also found that the probability of having the lowest IQ in blondes was slightly lower while the highest - a little more than that of women with other hair colors.Upon completion of the work, the experts pointed out that the survey results do not confirm the genetic relationship between the level of intelligence and hair color.
