Assuming 5'6-5'7 was the average in those countries, those 5'8+ should be the top shelf producers, critical thinkers and the most intelligent, equivalent to guys 6'+ over here. 

I dont have any data on the height of men in my country (and I havent lived there very long.. only as a kid) but what little Ive rea is the average woman is 4'10-4'11.5... given the average woman is ~5 inches shorter than the average man in western countries, probably for S.E Asian countries the average woman is 4.5" shorter than the average man... making the average man 5'2.5- 5'4 ... making me shorter than average in S.E Asia as well... 

 

So, Im a good example myself of being shorter than average but still smart - AKA its only a correlation, not an iron law of nature or anything.

My dad does not believe in the Anne Case paper, though maybe that is because of confirmation bias?

 

So, what DOES your dad believe then? I personally, have no strong beliefs... the data is too contradictory... I would just LIKE the Anne Case paper to be true.

Why do you agree that taller people are smarter on average? What evidence do you have to supply for this assertion other than confirmation bias?

Can't this same reasoning be used to suggest that men are smarter than women?
