@kot @tripu Harsher in what way? I don't know if it's easier to live in Subsaharan Africa than in Norway... Higher latitudes perhaps go through more extreme changes during the year and require more different adaptations. Also, according to Jared Diamond's theory, higher latitudes allowed for longer distance travel and commerce, and more diverse cultural exchange.
@ImperfectIdea @kot The spot in Subsaharan Africa that is furthest from the Equator (Cape of Good Hope) is only 34° (S), while the Southern-most part of Norway (Kristiansand) is already 58° (N). So all other things being equal (and of course they are not), according to this theory, Norwegians would be naturally less aggressive, more creative and individualistic, and more content with their lives than South Africans. This result isn't obviously true, but it isn't necessarily surprising, either.
