Political, religious and sexual behaviors may be reflections of intelligence, a new study finds. [From Liberalism, atheism, male sexual exclusivity linked to IQ]

Evolutionary psychologist Satoshi Kanazawa at the the London School of Economics and Political Science correlated data on these behaviors with IQ from a large national U.S. sample and found that, on average, people who identified as liberal and atheist had higher IQs. This applied also to sexual exclusivity in men, but not in women. The findings will be published in the March 2010 issue of Social Psychology Quarterly.

Not exactly surprising.
