Mentioning Dacians in the introduction to Getae[edit]

there's a bell curve in everything, not just in iq, but in every characteristic. certain patterns can be identified within certain populations. cognitive science is not a fairytale. ur revolution is dead. at least its ideology used to be sort of sexy, but now, not even that. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Cei Trei (talkcontribs) 18:29, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

You're over-generalizing. It's my understanding that many of the tests intended to measure subjective characteristics of the human personality are designed with the normal distribution in mind, so it's no surprise that, given sufficient samples, the results follow that distribution. The problem is that such numeric values are only relevant at the extremes (sometimes only at one of the extremes: a very low IQ is a much better predictor than a very high IQ). Furthermore, cognitive science can perfectly explain certain characteristics shared by groups of people by using much more tangible discriminators than the "nation": level of education, access to media, wealth, etc (incidentally, such characteristics are also the ones that define social class in most non-socialist societies). And rest assured I don't support ideas based on their ability to entice sexual gratification.Anonimu (talk) 21:03, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
