That makes more sense.
By using phrases like "egalitarian" or "patriarchal" when referring to perhaps only 1-5% of the population in a "study" presuming to measure the historical genesis of regional and national development/underdevelopment, IQ and its associated causes is something that automatically discredits the study and makes it completely worthless at best and dangerously misinforming at worst.
You are looking at the wrong measurements.
There is a lot more to this than silly lines on maps.
