There is a decrease in average human iq since when social media really started (atleast it was, dunno about statistics in the past 5 years). This leads to people voting for extremist parties again because the algorithms the big companies Made favor you getting the news you Like rather the News you dislike and with which you would have to actually search for stuff rather than Just agreeing what other people say that have the Same opinion and extremist viewpoints on News are Most of the Times the Most shocking way on looking on stuff even though Most of the times only half of what they write is right. The average human being never Background checked stuff. And at some point the countries will suffer so hard that either the economy is fucked or an authotarian government is coming back and then No one has (is allowed) to think anymore.

How I states in other comments. The decrease Happens since 60s, 70s, I Just used social media as an example because thats what HLTV users can reflect on. In the end the whole Media has/had this effect.

I agree. People get brainwashed by right wing media way too much these days. Social media is a perfect tool for these degenerates.

People from both sides brainwash tbh

I agree, both sides are getting disinformed, Not brainwashed, shoudnt be used, doesnt help the discussion. But atleast I See a far more Higher increase in right Wing opinions that left Wing opinions on earth.

Does getting brainwash affect your logic? I don't think so. Not in an IQ test sense, anyway.

This is not a good way to interact with people around. If you feel personally attacked, then maybe there is something true behind what I said

You have a point to an extent, but IQ scores have been decreasing since the 90s way before social media even existed.

Of course it isnt Just social media, but Media overall. I Just used social media because I think this is better to reflect on for the average HLTV User who didnt live in the 60s, 70s or so.

You dont need social media, places Like Hltv can have the Same effect of people actively searching for stuff that agrees with them rather than disagrees with them.
2019-04-14 23:55
Any sources? Also, social media is entirely far left, every right leening public figure gets shadow banned or completely banned. It's actually hard to find right leening stuff on social media, way harder than leftist stuff anyways

Social Media is entirely far left? That's an extreme Statement to make. My source for the decline is uhaweb.hartford.edu/brbaker/ , the Rest is how Said a unproven theory that I thought about. I learned a Lot about the way Media works in the past year and I think this seems logical. The effect that people search stuff that agrees with them is proven as far as I can think of, but I dont know how it is called again, should be findable though. And Back tontge beginning, that the rise of the Media leads adds to the decrease of the average Iq is Not proven, as far as I looked into it. Back to your Statement. Ever thought that maybe you are far right thinking? Because social Media is Not far left. I think this is a Illusion you are telling yourself. every social media has right Wing communities. It would be rather easy to find them.

The term you're looking for is confirmation bias: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Confirmation_bias

This article says we have lower iq due to dropouts in school but tbh finishing school is almost pointless and does not help you in anyway in life it doesnt prepare you for jobs or any other things so the iq thing doesnt really represent a thing that we really need because obviously humans are getting smarter we invent things every week the iq thing shows what you know about random things overall which all of us dont really need to know. Its a lot better for different people to specialize in different things and not force them to know a little bit about everything

I know , but that's why I said that the connection of Media and IQ has no scientific proof behind it. Atleast I couldnt find anything. That's why I called it a theory, because this is how people call it normally, even though that's No what theory actually is

2019-04-15 07:31
I think another factor in decreasing iq is smartphones: people have access to internet anywhere any time, so we aren't so bothered to memorize/learn things when we can just google the answer or watch yt video on how something is done. Thus we outsource our brains tasks to our smartphones. Brain is a muscle: it withers if we don't use it.

Human IQ is at an all time high. People just choose to think with their dicks.
2019-04-15 08:29
Because people aregetting brainwashed by media these days and not most people have the criticial ability to think what is good and what is bad. Nowadays social media is all about getting fame without having some achievement

Its not about social media or brainwashing. People just dont have to evolve anymore because life is so easy. Everyone is kept alive no matter how noob human u are. Its not survival of the fittest anymore. Its survival for everyone and thats why average iq goes down. Still someone smarter than anyone ever before is likely to be born.
