Musical taste and IQ by race: Steve Sailer suggested that I display results from the last post broken out by race to see what happens. Here are mean IQs for whites:
New Age 107.5
Big Band 105.2
Contemporary Rock 101.1
Easy Listening 100.2
Heavy Metal 98.5
The ranking is similar to what we saw belowe (since whites are by far the largest group). Not surprisingly, the IQs are higher for whites, and they rose the most among genres that are popular among non-whites: Latin, jazz, blues, reggae.
Here are the means for blacks:
New Age 113.9
Easy Listening 95.8
Contemporary Rock 93.2
Big Band 91.4
Heavy Metal 87.6
Caution: sample sizes are extremely small for less popular types of music.
