But according to the new study’s results, a young adult male’s risk of heavy drinking increases 20 percent for every rung down an IQ ladder established by the researchers. Likewise, their risk of binge drinking increases by 9 percent for every drop down the IQ scale. The findings may not pertain to females, however. Researchers in Sweden found that as men’s IQ scores dropped, their risk of both heavy drinking and binge drinking rose. “Intelligence, along with many other factors, might be a part of the complex picture that influences alcohol consumption,” said lead author Sara Sjolund, a doctoral student at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm.

A new study of the association between IQ-test results and drinking, measured as both total intake and pattern of use, has found that a lower IQ is clearly associated with greater and riskier. But according to the new study’s results, a young adult male’s risk of heavy drinking increases 20 percent for every rung down an IQ ladder established by the researchers. Likewise, their risk of binge drinking increases by 9 percent for every drop down the IQ scale. The findings may not pertain to females, however. A study conducted in Sweden found a link between IQ and drinking.

That is, young men with lower intelligence tend to engage in riskier drinking behavior. The study controlled for other risk factors. The fact is, alcohol is a learned addiction.

The sooner you get started, the quicker you will sink into the quicksand. In summary, yes there is a link between intelligence and alcohol but it’s perhaps not the compliment you were hoping for. Problems with alcohol never get better on their own. People often tell me that drinking lowers your IQ. And that if you drink regularly, it will be a permanent effect.

I even remember a biology teacher once telling a class this. Do you think that alcohol consumption has any permanent effect on intelligence? Can you drink heavily for say, 5 years, and still have the same IQ once you stop?

Alcoholism Anyone take an IQ test drunk? I feel so much smarter with my clear head and all that I decided to take an IQ test. Needless to say I only scored 90, but I started to think. I spent so much time dumbing down, what a shame. I can remember so many times where I had trouble doing basic things as a drunk.

A student from UCLA has just achieved the highest score in history on an IQ test designed by Mensa, and she claims her astonishing result is due to her daily ingestion of sperm.

The closer the social connection, the greater the influence one person’s drinking had on another’s, the researchers found. People were 50% more likely to be heavy drinkers if one of their friends.

Importantly, IQ was not found to be associated with heavy drinking nor was the IQ advantage of wine drinkers over beer and spirit drinkers associated with socio-economic factors.

But we do know that adolescent binge drinkers have lower intellectual abilities, as evidenced by the fact that they score lower on the vocabulary and memory portions of standard neuropsychological tests.

This is hard to say, because there is data indicating that childhood intelligence tests (i.e., measures of cognitive power taken before people begin to drink) predict drinking patterns.

Children exposed prenatally to alcohol typically have intelligence quotient (IQ) scores in the low average to borderline range.

Alternatively, it is possible that an undetected third variable, such as alcohol abuse, contributes to both low self-esteem and smaller brains (people who drink heavily may both think more poorly of themselves and suer long-term brain damage).

  • I say that with my heart: this video is amazing, really good job.
    It is summary all things about alcohol thank you so much you really help me ❤❤❤❤

  • if studies show a link between alcohol consumption and aggression. Why are there ‘happy drunks’? There is a difference between a casual consumer of alcohol, and a full blown alcoholic. Wish more videos would recognize this.

  • I’m a field tech so I have to go to a lot of different IT depts throughout the city to perform repair work on IT equipment. Even though a lot of these IT people are nice people overall, MOST of them are fat to obese, lethargic, or you can tell they are complete social recluses.

  • I’m really enjoying the science of this video but the repeated mention of aggression and the quite badly disguised moralising stance against alcohol is quite annoying. I clicked on this video to learn something, not to watch an after school special. The title is definitely misleading.

  • I only got number 5 and 9 wrong: (You’re tall and you have blue eyes)
    And here,I thought I was the dumbest in my family cuz I don’t speak much.
    How many introverts here understand what I mean?

  • lol. im 15 and my 16 year old friend an I had a.187 after the last night.. even tho we had slept for 6 hours… needless to say were from Germany… but Eins acht sieben:)

  • Alcohol and many other drugs should be banned, but tv shows Netflix video etc promotes alcohol even smoke mariguana and cigarettes,

  • Back in the 1960s and 70s the number one place for alcoholism was on the space coast of Florida. I grew up there I and I know why.

  • They told me in A.A. if your bored it’s probably because your boring.
    If your so high I.Q. it should be easy to come up with ways to make your life interesting, exciting and inspiring.

  • Alcohol is alright. I wouldn’t call it a great buzz. It’s passable, and easy to get, so if you want a buzz, why not. It’s legal pretty much everywhere as long as you’re old enough.
    No big deal though, it’s more convenient than anything, and that’s probably why people drink so much of it. Convenient as long as you don’t drive while high on it, though.

  • MY body is fine thank you very much. With the love of GOD anything is possible even living a healthy life. I don’t plan on dying but if i do, then I will go to heavean with the other MORMORSNS because I am a mormong also stop making me comment on videos, I don’t want to

  • its real simple oneday you just give up on life and you turn into a baby drinking milk and then you realize that being a baby will never make you happy its way easier to quit when you have a real good idea of the kind of person you want to become a victim or a worrier there is no right or wrong in this world just make a contuse chose that will make your truly happy

  • Never ever drink alcohol it’s very bad for you and will hurt you’re brain! That’s why you never drink and drive drinking lots of beer will make you dizzy! So never ever drink beer or wine or the main sentence here is….


  • Hi! How does IQ being fixed relate to the growth mindset? If one learns better analytical skills and to be attentive to detail, doesn’t that improve their IQ?
