Researchers have debunked the long-running dumb blonde myth, which is quite popular with society. You may know some dumb red jokes or even have already been told them, or maybe you are usually blonde and have used the phrase, “I’m having a foolish blonde moment.Inch But research suggests in which blondes have similar Intelligence quotient scores to those regarding other hair color.
Furthermore, women with by natural means blonde hair have slightly higher IQ scores than those along with brown, red, or even black hair.
Despite the fact that blonde jokes could be a form of entertainment, review author Jay Zagorsky indicates it could have harmful consequences. Zagorsky said, “Research demonstrates stereotypes often have a direct effect on hiring, marketing promotions, and other social activities. This study provides engaging evidence that there shouldn’t be any elegance against blondes based on their own intelligence.”
The researchers viewed data of almost 10,900 bright American baby boomers that completed an IQ test in 1980.
Zagorsky added in, “I don’t think it is possible to say with assurance that blondes are cleverer than others, but you really can say they are not any dumber.”
The experts could not determine if tresses color held a genetic link to intelligence, but they also did find that blondes were more likely to grow up in homes with more resources.
The findings were printed in Economics Bulletin.
