These studies seem to confirm the anecdotal evidence.  Of course it is just on average.  Something a lot of people that read these studies seem to forget.  The reality is, on intelligence tests, the group scoring higher is much smaller than the group scoring lower.  Therefore any activity is going to be represented in larger numbers in the lower intelligence group.  Like saying ‘intelligent women tend to marry men less intelligent than they are (and vice versa)”.  It’s because statistically most men are going to be less intelligent than an intelligent woman (and vice versa).  Food for thought.  If it gives one racist pause (“Am I being dumb?”) then it’s worth noting.
