In Austria, a study of the associate professor at the Johannes-Kepler University in Linz, Markus Appel, concluded that when students of immigrant origin saw posters with images or phrases considered hostile to foreigners, their intellectual capacities diminish.

The tests used by the professor consisted of giving difficult mental exercises to pupils of foreign origin. Posters from the FPÖ (Austrian Freedom Party) containing the slogans "Welfare state instead of immigration", "At home instead of Islam" and "German rather than 'don't understand'" (1) were then shown to them. Difficult mental tests were then given to these pupils who found it more difficult to solve them. If they were given the same tests without having been shown the posters, however, they did not encounter any additional difficulties compared to the first tests.

Pupils of Austrian origin placed in comparable conditions did not show any change in results after having viewed the slogans on the FPÖ posters. After being shown the FPÖ posters, the thinking power of foreigners falls by 6%.
