With an boost in a series of comparison fathers in both a US and a UK given 2003, we could shortly see a swell of geeks in schools, according to a new study.

Researchers have found that sons of comparison fathers are some-more intelligent, some-more focused on their interests, rarely ambitous and reduction endangered about wise in – all characteristics typically seen in ‘geeks’.

While a reason for this stays unclear, scientists advise that comparison fathers are expected to have some-more determined careers and a aloft amicable status, definition their children might have entrance to improved schooling.

There is also a probable couple between comparison fathers being some-more expected to have autistic sons that are focused on certain hobbies, a researchers said.

THE STUDY 

Researchers collected information from 15,000 UK-based twin pairs.

At age 12, a twins finished online tests that totalled ‘geek-like’ traits, including non-verbal IQ, clever concentration on a subjects of interest, and levels of amicable aloofness.

The twins’ parents were also asked either their child cares about how they are viewed by their peers, and if they have any interests that take adult a infancy of their time.

The researchers used this information to come adult with a ‘geek index’ for any child.

Results showed that a sons of comparison fathers had aloft geek index scores overall.

And ‘geekiness’ seemed to burst some-more when fathers were over a age of 45, a researchers told MailOnline.

Researchers from King’s College London collected information from 15,000 UK-based twin pairs in a Twins Early Development Study.

At age 12, a twins finished online tests that totalled ‘geek-like’ traits.

These enclosed non-verbal IQ, clever concentration on a subjects of interest, and levels of amicable aloofness.

The relatives were also asked either their child cares about how they are viewed by their peers, and if they have any interests that take adult a infancy of their time.

Using this information, a researchers came adult with a ‘geek index’ for any child.

The formula showed that a sons of comparison fathers had aloft geek index scores overall.

And ‘geekiness’ seemed to burst some-more when fathers were over a age of 45, a researchers told MailOnline.

Dr Magdalena Janecka, who led a study, said: ‘Our investigate suggests that there might be some advantages compared with carrying an comparison father.

‘We have famous for a while about a disastrous consequences of modernized consanguine age, though now we have shown that these children might also go on to have improved educational and career prospects.’

While a investigate did not directly demeanour during environmental factors, a researchers trust there could be a operation of reasons for this correlation.

For example, comparison fathers are expected to have some-more determined careers and a aloft socioeconomic standing than younger fathers, definition that their children might be brought adult in some-more enriched environments and have entrance to improved schooling.

GEEKY SONS

While a investigate did not directly demeanour during environmental factors, a researchers trust there could be a operation of reasons for this correlation.

For example, comparison fathers are expected to have some-more determined careers and a aloft socioeconomic standing than younger fathers, definition that their children might be brought adult in some-more enriched environments and have entrance to improved schooling.

The commentary could have implications for bargain links between aloft consanguine age, autism and characteristics typically seen in ‘geeks.’

The researchers advise that some of a genes for geekiness and for autism might overlap.

Dr Janecka added: ‘When a child is innate usually with some of those genes, they might be some-more expected to attain in school.

‘However, with a aloft ‘dose’ of these genes, and when there are other contributing risk factors, they might finish adult with a aloft proclivity for autism.

‘This is upheld by new investigate display that genes for autism are also related with aloft IQ.’
