IQ tests do not tend to test knowledge of any particular pop culture,
but they test patterns of thinking and association that depend on how
your brain is organized to solve problems. People who receive a good
western education while having talents in this area are going to surpass
those with talents that receive a poor education and/or have a stressful
family life, poverty etc..
