I know this might seem a wierd topic but it's something I've considered for a long time. I will explain. When I was in high school, not many people listened to rock or metal, as you would expect from 11 to 15 year olds. I think people find their personilty at around 16 or 17 years old. We were about 5 rock (metal) fans in a school of 400 pupils. When I moved on to Lycee (French equivalent to College), there were slighty more rock/metal fans, it's funny to notice how those people who listened to Nirvana and co. back in high school suddenly appeared to listen to all sorts of metal bands. We were all drawn together. Basically every metalhead in the school new the others. We were a maximum of 30 metalheads out of 700 students. I must mention now that in high school and Lycee, the rock/metal fans were always average students, getting average marks without working at all, and I was one of them. When I moved on to Uni, it seemed most my metal friends had to, and many more from over colleges. In the first year, of English studies, we were a full line in the amphitheatre who the lecturers depised and saw as rejects and future dropouts. Again, we all got slightly about average grades, just enough to get through to the following year with the minimum of work. Funny enough, along the years us metalheads managed to progress from year to year whilst others droped out. In our third year we were like 20 out of 60 students. During my masters degree, we were 5 out of fifteen. It's as if we're the only people with a mind capable of analysing a subject quickly and intelligently are capable of understanding the beauty of metal. I would like to know whether other people have experienced or noticed similar things or whether it was a one of matter that occured during my education (although the amount of fresh metalhead students turning up every year at Uni tends to justify my statement).

PS: A mate made me notice the same thing with left handed people. Every year the proportion of left handed people in the class tended to rise, I remember one lesson when there were more lefthanded people than right handed and that is not natural.

I think metalheads are just as other people. Some are smart, some are stupid, most are average. After all, we're not some superior race. I think the conception of metalheads being more intelligent than other people is sort of a side-effect from the elitist mindset that some metalheads tend to have. Especially the ones that see themselves as "true, kvlt" and so on. But again, that is just my theory.

From my experience most mealheads are average. Some are incredibly intelligent, and some are just plain dumb. I, on the other hand, prefer the educated, polite and down to earth kind

Though it's mostly true, i don't think uni students are necessarily always more intelligent. They may be more educated in the things they have been studying, but a lot of people i know who come out of uni with there degree thinking there the masters of everything, have no intelligence in real life skills, or just plain dumb in other areas, i know a lot of these people.


I didn't suggest any correlation between a University degree and intelligence (though I'm sure that statistically, there is one). M C Vise tentatively suggested that metalheads might be smarter because there seem to be many students/graduates on MS. I countered that it doesn't so much say anything about the average metalhead as about the average internet forum-goer.
