Royal Panda has conducted a series of tests in which more than 1000 gamers were interviewed. This resulted in the highest intelligence quotient (IQ) across platforms, gender and games. The study focused on four key dimensions: verbal intelligence, mathematical ability, logical and visual reasoning.
It turned out that the smartest gamers prefer the PC. Their average IQ is 112.3 points. In second place are PlayStation fans – 110.7, on Xbox below – 103.8. The fourth and fifth places were taken by players on Switch and smartphones – 101.3 and 99.4, respectively.
At the same time, gamers on the PlayStation showed the best results in tests for logical and visual thinking. Rainbow Six Siege audience has the highest IQ – 120.3. The Angry Birds puzzle has the least – 95.8.
Gamers were on average smarter than men: 108.4 versus 102.3.
Among operating systems, the distribution is as follows:
- Android – 110.3
- iOS – 102.1
- Windows – 106.7
- Mac – 108.2
Unfortunately, fans of strategy and other large-scale tactical titles that require a lot of thought were not included in the results. Apparently, they turned out to be too smart to participate in this farce.
