America might have the most Nobel Prize winners and Germany may be able to claim Einstein as theirs, but when it comes to ordinary people - does geography determine whether you’ll be a whiz with words or a natural with numbers? There’s only one way to find out…
By studying the results from thousands of psychometric tests taken across the globe we found some very interesting, often surprising results. So, we’re now ready to crown the world’s cleverest country.
It’s a numbers game
When it’s time to split the bill, it’s best to see if there’s a Belgian at the table. Coming in top with a whopping score of 91%, Belgium showed they’re truly ahead of the (numbers) game. Impressive results also came from Canada and Poland, who scored 86% and 85% respectively. Further down the league table was Australia at 51% and Singapore at 52%, showing that it’s no problem if your skills lie elsewhere.
Belgium are the world’s best number-crunchers with an average score of a whopping 91%
Bow to reason
If it’s a sensible answer you need, best head to Poland. Natives here topped the class when it came to logical thinking, closely followed by Belgium, Hong Kong and Singapore. Most countries averaged a respectable 54-74%, with Russia showing they placed more importance on other things with a score of 38%.

No language barriers here
Communication is key - at least if you live in Belgium. This tiny European country proved that mastering the art of language, comprehension and connection came naturally, with an impressive score of 77%. Poland was hot on their heels at 74%, while on average, most countries scored a more modest 51-61%.
And the winner is…
You’d be forgiven for thinking Belgium would take the cognitive crown with their impressive overall score of 83%. But when all of our psychometric testing results were carefully analysed, Poland edged it by just 1%.
And the first prize goes to Poland, with the success rate of 84%!
Most countries measured somewhere between 60-77%, showing that there are always things to celebrate, (and there’s always more to learn!).
