MOPH organizes IQ-boosting activity for children

Recommended Posts

As a Clinical Psychologist, I ask, have they really done any longitudinal research by reading the literature and performing any experiments concerning this problem?  Obviously not.  Professional literature is replete with articles concerning this topic.  IQ can change over time but few people realise that IQ tests provide the same answer, i.e. scores, etc., to a great extent, even over a period of one year. The older a person is the more the test scores remain the same.  It has been shown that children can have increased volatility in IQ scores is in childhood but it occurs mostly in adolescence but much depends on the environment in which they were raised.

 

Could go on but the pundits know better than to listen to read or such details as it may cause them to develop headaches, etc.

 

'nuf sed.

I think there were already IQ-boosting activities taking place in Bangkok this month: closing of schools due to air pollution.

The LAST thing the Thai Powers That Be want is for the populace to become Awakened and intelligent. Lack of perceptiveness and ability to think critically and independently is the single greatest sustaining force for the whole power structure of Thailand.

 

'Keep the peasants ignorant, stupid and servile - that way we can rule, unchallenged' - that is the tacit mantra of the Controllers (backed up by tanks, guns and bombs).

 

 

Not a new philosophy. 

"it is also in the interest of a tyrant to make his subjects poor so that he may be able to be able to afford the cost of a bodyguard, while the people are so occupied with their daily tasks that they have no time for plotting". Aristotle.

Years ago a minister summoned parents to produce "quality babies". I'm surprised they did not heed the call.

Maybe the parents were realistic?

True. As long as it filters down the bureaucratic levels and is implemented.

I honestly doubt that will be the case... unless people higher up really want it and see to it that it's implemented.

Having a higher IQ when the education system is still so poor is useless. Until the elites realise that there is value in having inquiring minds and stop using the education system as a propaganda tool to keep the pollute dumb, there is no point.

Sad. Unlike in US where the underclass is addicted to junk food, the poor here will eat a healthy balanced diet. Seems so easy to get a bit of protein and vitamins to them.

 

Thailand 4.0

All classes eat junk food in the USA.  Look at cheeseburger Trump.

The Thai people have some of the highest IQ's in the world when it comes to concocting innovative schemes to fleece Farangs.

Not really -  it starts with the two oldest tricks in the book - then the farang donates = no fleecing involved

As far as science goes:

It is IMPOSSIBLE to increase IQ !!!

 

Sadly most people talk about IQ without even knowing what it is.

Look at the average IQ scores per country according to the UN  ... you will be seriously surprised.

And there are connections to IQ you are not even allowed to talk about any more these days.
