Migrants in Germany score badly in ‘culture-fair’ tests

The immigrants who came to Germany with the migrant influx crisis solve about as many tasks in a language-independent and knowledge-independent - called "culture-fair" - intelligence test as mediocre German students.

Published: March 19, 2019, 12:48 pm

    This is what the business psychologist Bruno Klauk from the Harz University of Applied Sciences in Wernigerode reported at the 23rd symposium of the Society for Applied Business Psychology last weekend in Berlin.

    By means of a study lasting several months, based on a random sample of more than 500 volunteer asylum seekers, Klauk calculated an average intelligence quotient of 90 – which is only slightly higher than the German Hauptschule.

    Particularly striking are the low levels obtained by immigrants from sub-Saharan Africa, while those from Eastern Europe tend to outperform others.

    In psychology, intelligence is considered a reliable predictor variable for career success. Following the test result, it would appear to be rather difficult to meet the need for skilled workers and highly skilled workers in the Federal Republic of Germany with immigrant workers.

    Klauk’s findings indirectly contradict the portrayal of migrants in the mainstream media, and by politicians and representatives of the economy.

    For example, Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche announced: “Most of the refugees are young, well-educated and highly motivated”. In fact, Zetsche spoke of the coming “new economic miracle”.
