THE 2014 report by the “IQ and the Wealth of Nations” described Ethiopia as the second “dumbest” country in the world with the lowest IQ.
The average IQ attached to Ethiopia was 63, which is in fact second lowest average IQ from last.
There are demonstrable links between Intelligent quotient (IQ) of countries, investment in education and public access to information. For those who know about the education and information technology policies in Ethiopia, it is not surprising that Ethiopia ranks 2nd from the worst in IQ.
Though it is extremely embarrassing, the findings will have a negative effect on some and conveys a sad message to those bright, struggling and hard working Ethiopians.
