The 21st Century will not belong to Europe: Negative Flynn effects abound.

People, I had no idea this was happening! I thought the Flynn effect was ubiquitous.

But IQ scores have been falling in Europe since the turn of the century!

Here’s France. And here’s Denmark. And let’s not forget Finland!┬áC’mon Norway, don’t be shy.

The France link says “Results are inline with 7 studies showing a Negative Flynn Effect in Europe”, but these are all I could find in 7 minutes on Google Scholar.

So maybe Southern Europe is not doomed?

I couldn’t find any studies on a negative Flynn effect in the US.
