manSomeone who has suicidal feelings in general, depression is triggered by factors that can not be controlled. And a recent study found that men who have low IQ nine times more prone to commit suicide.

Previous studies have found that among young men who tried to commit suicide has been linked with intelligence level or the Intelligence Quotient (IQ) is lower.

From the analysis based on Sweden's 1.1 million people's lives, found that there was a link between low IQ and suicide attempts.

Low level of intelligence which is expected to play a significant role in the attempted suicide. These researchers noted in a report published online in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) June 3, 2010 edition.

In the new study, researchers at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, examined the medical records of men born between 1950 and 1976. The men are known to have never experienced the physical and mental exams for 24 years.

“1.6 percent of men from 17 736 participants reported data had been rushed to hospital for attempted suicide,” says Finn Rasmussen, a professor in the Department of Public Health Sciences at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, as reported from MSN.

After adjusting the data for men of age and socioeconomic status, researchers found that men with the lowest IQ of almost nine times more likely to try to commit suicide than men with the highest IQs.

Given the novelty of these findings, Rasmussen said that further research is needed to provide a better understanding. Provide understanding and inform public health strategies is expected to reduce suicide attempts in the future.

Standard normal IQ by Stanford-Binet scale is in the range of 85-115. Only 1 percent of the world's population has a high IQ above 135. 50 percent have an average IQ in the range of 90-110, 25 percent have an IQ above average and 25 per cent longer have a low IQ is below average.

People who had low IQ below 70 and it was difficult to communicate with other people who are usually called 'idiots', mental retardation or mental retardation.

People like this have a unique personality, but in social life is often a mockery, ridicule. This may be one trigger of the men had low IQ want to make suicide attempts.
