While I was browsing the net for topics related to IQ, I came across sever articles that stated that people with High IQs are more likely to do drugs later in life. The intelligence Quotient is "a systematic means of quantifying differences among people in their intelligence." This test was conducted over the span of 30 years, beginning in 1970. It consisted of 8,000 people. In this study, they found that, "IQ at 10 was associated with higher rates of marijuana use at 16. There was also an association between IQ at 10 and use, at 30, of marijuana, cocaine, amphetamines, and ecstasy. The link held for both men and women, and was actually stronger in women." These results remained the same even after the participants parent's class, their later education and income were taken into account.
One thing that this study did not take into account was ethnicity. Given that IQ tests are often unfair to people who's native language is not the language that the IQ test is given in, their IQ scores are often lower than the norm. Therefore, the subject pool of those with high IQ's was limited to those who were good at the language the test was given in. Furthermore, since this test was conducted among participants only from England, this could be a phenomena that occurs as a result of the British lifestyle or culture.
We know that those with High IQ's tend to live healthier lifestyles and smoke less than those with lower IQ's. This doesn't make much sense at first glance. However, according to the Lillienfield text, people with high IQ's tend to seek new experiences. They are also more prone to boredom than those with average or low IQ's.
