Study: Men Smarter than Women

Quote:
Men are more intelligent than women, claims new study

It is research that is guaranteed to delight men - and infuriate the women in their lives. A controversial new study has claimed that men really are more intelligent than women.

The study - carried out by a man - concluded that men's IQs are almost four points higher than women's.

British-born researcher John Philippe Rushton, who previously created a furore by suggesting intelligence is influenced by race, says the finding could explain why so few women make it to the top in the workplace.

I thought it was established a long time ago that men score higher on the IQ test. In fact they score higher on most forms of standardized tests. For example, the highest scoring group on the LSAT are white males, and I don't think it has anything to do with intelligence but rather the form of test we are talking about.

"Smart" has absolutley NOTHING to do with IQ tests. By and large (and I'm a guy) judging from the hundreds of men and hundreds of women I've known throughout my life I have to say that overall the women are "smarter" - I am NOT saying that there aren't alot of stupid women out there. Take for example all the supposedly "smart" women who actally have relationships with total buffoons.

Seriously though.

I would be curious to see how the same participants do on a test carried out by a woman.


I also agree with what anitram said. I also think that there are just some things women are 'smarter' at and some things men are 'smarter' at. I dont feel you can classify a whole gender as being smarter than the other.

Study: Men More Likely to Believe Anything They Read Than Women






Seriously, I'm always leery of these 'studies' anyway - regardless of their outcome. Just like taking polls, you can manipulate your data into the results you desire. The plain and simple truth of the matter is that men are naturally more adept at mastering certain concepts and tasks, women more adept at others. Sometimes a woman is exceptional in an area generally populated by men, sometimes it's the other way 'round.

No big woop.

My thoughts exactly. I read "IQ test..." and thought "pffft! duh!" and basically stopped reading.

If the IQ test is seriously what they believe to be the best indicator of "smartness", then men can go ahead and have that honor.

I don't believe in IQ tests. I took one and scored a 140. So what?

Being the speptic I am, I wouldn't doubt that many questions were directed for a male frame of mind. You can manipulate data and fool some of the people some of the time, but you can never fool all the people all the time.

Please

Men may have bigger brains than women, but isn't a fact they only use half of it, while women use nearly all of theirs?

Women and men both have their specific strengths, I question what exactly constitutes these tests.

It is well known that men are better with things like logic, problem solving, mathematics, spatial skills etc. whilst women are better with things like cleaning and ironing. I bet the IQ didn't even contain ANY questions pertaining to cleaning and ironing, so naturally men would acheive higher scores.
