Retardation due to its time under Communism?

The IQ itself doesn't make anyone more successful in life. The Germans have a nice saying: "Das ist eine brotlose Kunst" - "This is a breadless art" referring that some endeavor, most likely an honest attempt at creating something, is not going to feed you.

It's more to do with historical and economical position of Poland thought out of last 300 years.
Poles were fighting for their independence and just to stay a life, this took a lot of energy from nation
energy that could be put to use in researched and development of new ideas.
I think over all we did ok.

Why then does Poland lag in terms of scientific breakthroughs, inventions

Does it?? Are you forgetting the fact that Poland was not on the map for a while, you’re just looking for them in the wrong country list. Plenty of Poles listed as Americans, hmmmm???

innovative products

Obviously you never visited Polish construction site, the sh*t they come up with……

cultural trends

For sure you won’t find that in US, the media simply won’t allow it where the word Polish is synonymous with …………, propagating that negative stereotype instead.

fads

Forfiter T-shirt "Gonna give'm a cziken?"

crazes

I think the last example qualifies, don’t you?
Etc. etc.

Probably because the list is largely a load of donkey vomit.

By the same token: Ireland last?

When it is one of the highest ranked per capita nobel winners in the world & has contributed in science, the arts and literature to an extent greatly disproportionate to its population.

If it is the one I think it is Germany is still leading together with Austria and Holland with 102
(and both are proxy Germans anyhow) :)

Maybe because IQ tests do a **** poor job of assessing individual intelligence.

On a side note, it's interesting how no two "country IQ" lists are the same...

How many of you have taken an IQ test....and allowed the results to be used publicly? Guessing not many...all with a huge grain of salt...

Probably an American one, the same list where Mozart is said to have an IQ of 153 while actress Sharon Stone is alleged to have an IQ of 154. Go figure. BS if you ask me.

This whole IQ discussion doesn't really make much sense. Anytime you randomly pick few hundred people of one nation, you're chancing to pick the "right" or the "wrong" ones. You might just as well pick a few hundred idiots and the whole country's average IQ number is looking obviously very bad. Besides, what's more important, some very often incorrect measured IQ number or the efficiency of one nation?

According to this source Germany lost 3 points from 2002 to 2006, coming down to 99. China, in the same period, gained an impressive 5, from 100 to 105. Regardless of the year, the majority of the planet's population has IQ lower than 100, which goes against the definition of IQ. This list is rubbish, nothing to get excited about.

Another tack: IQ70 is considered a border line of 'intellectually deficient'. Moron, in the Internet terms. For a racist like me it shouldn't be surprising that almost the whole Africa is below IQ70. Now I do not consider myself a moron, one particular reason being that I don't believe those people can survive at all without being able to perform basic logic on a daily basis, and hindered by a big minority of people with IQ like 30.

This list shows the average ability of passing the particular IQ test. Useless for a racist...

what's more important, some very often incorrect measured IQ number or the efficiency of one nation?

And how important is the efficiency of one nation... ?

Israel, IQ95...

Since Germany is on top (in Europe at least - those darn Asians don't count) I'm not complaining!

2002 - IQ102
2006 - IQ99
2010 - ?

How do you define lag behind?

Its amazing how people throw around generalizations about Poland on this forum.

Although I think Poland could always do better I think for a medium size European nation it has done OK. It still has the scars of communism that its still overcoming. It shouldn't be taken for granted that great men that changed the world significantly for the better, like the past Polish pope, came from Poland.

Poland has also held its own in international Scholastic events such as winning the difficult world IBM Battle of the Brains computer programming contest. Students from Poland beat Germany, Japan, India, China and even the MIT students from the US in 2007.

2007 IBM Battle of the Brains World Computer Programming Winners are from Poland,

Good for Poland. You can only hope that it will have a positive impact on changing the life standard for average people in your country. Until then, all similar achievements are nothing but a "breadless art".

And how important is the efficiency of one nation... ?

What kind of question is that man? lol

Of course you are Europeans but stating this fact has nothing to do with one of your previous posts where you asked me your question as an answer to my question.

RANK COUNRTY IQ

Why start at 16? How about a link to see who the top 15 are? ;)

As others have said, it counts for little in reality. I know that I'm in the top 4% when it comes to IQ, but I'm single, childless, divorced, and I only earn 15% above the average. So it's hardly made me rich and famous, has it? lol

My question was rhetorical. It meant I don't consider nations' achievements so vitally important, as compared to other nations' achievements. Why do you, as your question, rhetorically, suggested?

Oh, well, drop it. you know what I think about this IQ comparisons, and I am going to bed anyway. Good night.

Edit:

That link shows Germany at 102

in 2002. Four years later, it's 99. Below human average, a whole point! :)
