@MariusUT "The Flynn effect is the substantial increase in average scores on intelligence tests all over the world."- From Wikipedia.
This does not mean people are smarter. It means they score better at tests that measure information and viso-spacial abilities, like the Weschler tests---> probably because the increase in educational material available and some important factors like nutrition (and videogames. Yes, it's true: videogames are good for us). Intelligence can`t be measured directly.
My point is: people are getting dumber. I think it`s the processed foods. And fake tans. And MTV.
