The study was conducted on 784 students aged 14 to 17 (383 boys and 401 girls), who were randomly selected, in Son La province. Following the standards of morphological and anthropological studies, this study aims to investigate IQ and find out the correlation between IQ and the fingerprint patterns of these teenagers. The results show that the average IQ of 14-17-year-old students is 102.28 points, with an annual increase of about 2.01 per year. The average IQ of the Kinh male students is the highest, at 104.04 points, whereas the lowest goes to the H'Mong male students (101.25 points). For female students, the highest average IQ is of Kinh ethnic group with 104.04 points while the lowest is for those of H'Mong ethnic group with 100.05 points. The distribution of students by intelligence level is in agreement with the normal distribution, with 46.04% of studied students having average IQ (level IV). The distribution of IQ levels varies by age. The pearson correlation value between IQ and fingerprint patterns Whereas is -0.001, AT is -0.021, LU is -0.02, LR is -0.04 and Wdl is -0.06 is a negative correlation with the weak correlation value. On the contrary, pearson correlation value between IQ and the remaining fingerprints where WC is 0.03, WS is 0.06 and Wcp is 0.008 is a positive correlation but it is still a weak correlation value.
