Smartest Countries

There are many ways to determine how smart a country’s population is, whether it be from their IQ scores or from their reading and writing ability comprehension. The IQ of a person refers to their intelligence quotient which measures their critical thinking ability. Generally, when discussing matters of intellect a measure using IQ is favored, although it is lacking in key areas (such as comprehension) and is therefore not entirely accurate.

The smartest countries are the countries that have invested heavily in education or have a high standard that is maintained constantly. Countries where education is a priority and where a culture of studying and self-improvement is permeated also tend to do well on such lists. As such, the top 5 smartest countries in the world can all be found in Asia, where education and learning are prioritized from an early age.

Average IQ

The Intelligent Quotient, or IQ, is a type of standard score that is calculated by a set of standardized tests designed to assess human intelligence. It generally ranges from 0 to 200, and 100 is considered to be the means. The higher an individual’s IQ is (or higher than 100), the more intelligent they are considered to be. Because IQ is a score that estimates – and not precisely measures – a certain form of intelligence, some argue that it is flawed and that it does not account for factors such as social skills, motivation, emotion, creativity, or morality. Despite this debate around the validity of the tests and IQ scores, the average IQ is commonly used around the world for educational purposes, employment, or for assessing intellectual disabilities.

Average IQ in the World

The average IQ is measured in almost every country in the world, which makes it a useful tool to compare a country’s population intelligence to another. But more than just assessing a population’s intelligence, the average IQ also plays a role in understanding the overall well-being of a nation. Indeed, IQ scores are associated with a variety of factors including nutrition, morbidity, mortality, and the environment. But more broadly, the average IQ is also correlated to socioeconomic factors such as school and job performances, income, crime, health, etc. Therefore, when comparing two countries’ average IQ, you not only compare their population’s intelligence, but also these countries’ education, health, social, political, and economic systems. This way, the average IQ of a nation gives a general idea of where cognitive abilities are the most developed, but also where social and economic wealth is. Consequently, looking at the average IQ in the world and comparing each country might also have some disadvantages because it does not solely reflect a population’s intelligence and cognitive skills, but much more.

Average IQ by Country

Taking a closer look at the average IQ by country, some are necessarily ranking higher than others. For instance, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, and Hong Kong all have the highest IQ scores, above 105. Besides all being located in East Asia, these countries have robust education systems and a culture of studying and self-improvement. Moreover, they each are well-developed nations with a highly developed market economy. One last key element, common to these countries with high IQ scores, is the fact that a majority of their population lives in cities – which are most of the time important urban centers with regional or international influence. It should be noted, however, that even if a nation has a developed market economy and important urban centers, its population will not necessarily have high IQ scores. India, with populous cities like Mumbai and Delhi and one of the strongest economies, has an estimated IQ of 76.24, which is significantly below the international average. This can be explained, in part, because India has one of the largest populations in the world, and a large portion of India’s citizens still live in rural areas, where access to education, employment, and healthcare remains uneasy. On the other side of the spectrum, countries that have a large population living in rural areas, that do not have a developed market economy, or that are (or were) in conflict, often tend to appear at the bottom of the ranking. For instance, Nepal, Liberia, and Sierra Leone all are countries with a low average IQ, ranging from 42 to 45.

Smartest Countries

Based on IQ estimates, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, and Hong Kong are considered to be the smartest countries in the world. Situated in East Asia, these four wealthy nations have prominent urban centers where the majority of the population lives and a strong market economy. But this is not their sole characteristic. In fact, these four countries are the smartest countries in the world because they have abundantly invested in education. They built robust basic education systems and higher education systems, they created effective early reading programs and other skills program. For instance, in Singapore, Japan, and Hong Kong (as well as South Korea), reforms have been adopted to change the way education is done. Understanding that we now live in a fast-paced and changing world, these reforms focus the curriculum on “learning to learn” so students are able to develop flexibility and adaptability to keep pace with our dynamic societies.

Smartest Country in the World

With a national IQ score of 106.48, Japan is the smartest country in the world, and it is for many reasons. First, Japan is a world-leading country and the third-largest economy. It is also one of the most densely populated countries in the world and is extremely urbanized. Moreover, Japan is a global center of innovation and is home to world-known companies in various industries including automobile manufacturing, electronics, and pharmaceuticals. Japan’s health system and overall health, nutrition, and environment have improved in the last decades. Finally, the Japanese education system is considered to be one of the best in the world: the government has invested in improving the quality of education from a very young age and adapting to the changing world by focusing on learning, innovation, and digital literacies. Yet, this drive for educational and employment success may have some downsides. Indeed, the strong Japanese culture for self-improvement and overachievement might also lead to isolation, loneliness, and exhaustion, impacting its population’s mental health. However, mental health issues and illnesses are stigmatized in Japanese society, and seen as shameful and taboo, which only aggravates the prevalence of mental diseases in the country.
