Vietnamese Genotypic IQ Higher than Han Chinese

Vietnam: Phenotypic IQ of 99, versus a genotypic IQ of 106. Certainly a major surprise, considering it is even higher than China. The gap is substantial, but smaller than in India or Africa. This is not surprising, since although Vietnam has the GDP per capita (PPP) of India, it is led by conscientious Communists and is much better off in terms of social development and nutrition (e.g. meat consumption per person is equivalent to that of neighboring, much richer countries). This makes its excellent performance in PISA 2012, which I wrote about in my introductory post on this site, much easier to explain. Consequently, it would also be a strike against Ron Unz’s theory of the East Asian Exception (i.e. that East Asian IQs are very resilient to negative socio-economic and environmental factors). There would still be a substantial gap between Vietnamese genotypic and phenotypic IQ; it’s just that the former are so phenomenally high that the latter can’t help but be very high as well, since Vietnam is at least in terms of social provision no longer a truly Third World country.

Author's conclusion: Regardless, short of them embarking on some new Maoist adventure, or getting flooded off the world map by runaway global warming, or getting nuked, or some other similarly apocalyptic scenario, China’s and Vietnam’s convergence to at least Japan’s level is all but certain in the long run.

Except, Japan is declining at a much faster rate than anticipated and the Vietnamese government is too damn corrupt and selfish to make use of Vietnamese intelligence in developing the country.

That conclusion has Vietnamese favoritism written all over it.  It's like based on the scientific research it is concluded that they will not be like Chinese and Japanese (and to give dramatic effect says short of having Maoism and getting nuked.)

What interest would this white author have in the Vietnamese?

What the authors are saying is that Vietnamese people are genetically smarter than Chinese people.  There is nothing wrong with that statement as it is a scientific statement.  Black people are genetically faster than white people but I see way more white people jogging in the streets and way more obese black people leaving fast food joints.  What I see is called phenotype.  What I do not see, while it remains true nevertheless that black people on average are faster than white people, is called genotype.

it is not good to have high IQ as it often leads to suicidal tendencies.  We Vietnamese should spend more type playing xbox, which in my case, has contributed to at least 12 IQ points depression.

how does the phenotypic IQ show up lower than the genotypic IQ?

I remember seeing old data on average IQ in China showing 99.5 and now it's around 105. I think the data was from 30+ years ago.

As populations get better nutrition and more resources their IQ rises closer to the genotypic potential.

so phenotypic IQ is measured by the IQ test, correct? how do you assess genotypic IQ?
