The intelligence of 136 adult Jews in Serbia was tested with Raven’s Standard Progressive Matrices. The sample had a British IQ of 103.5, significantly higher than the IQ of 100 of Northern and Central Europeans and of 91 in Serbia. The 30 individuals who identified themselves as Sephardi had a lower IQ (100.3) than the 22 who identified themselves as Ashkenazi (103.8), but most of the sample identified themselves as mixed Sephardi and Ashkenazi showing that the Sephardim and Ashkenazim are well integrated in Serbia.
