  • No ! Women identify their goal at an earlier age and its usually family oriented so their whole organization (including career choice) is based on this. So that make women look more focus, mature and prepared for something, wich is the fairy tale story and interpersonal relationship. Men are focus on playing sport, finding a job that pays the bill and more and their sense of priorities balances more on this. So them boys lack few qualities and values essentials to interpersonal relationship wich includes relationship with women. That doesn't make them less smart, because at the end of the day it is about beeing balanced.

  • In SOME ways, but CERTAINLY not ALL !
    For instance, she's datng or married to a guy that beats her quite ooften. She eventually goes to a male friend to cry on his shoulders and find out what she should do next. The basis of the conversation goes like this:
    He: what's wrong? Why are you crying?
    She: My boyfriend/husband just beat me up again!
    He: That fucking son of a bitch!! Are you okay? Why don't you leave him?
    She: I can't.
    He: Why not?
    She: Because I LOVE him!
    OBVIOUSLY, the guy in this conversation has all the brains!! Problem: somebody hurt me pretty badly. Solution: LEAVE!!! WHY she can't figure this out for herself if she's supposed to be so damn smart, is BEYOND me!!!

  • Intelligence can't be measured fully. There are multiple typea of intelligence, but even these aren't enough to fully describe intelligence.
    Women usually tend to use the right side of their brain more which means they may have some types of intelligence more developed, but the same apply for guys and the left side of the brain.

  • Yes on average girl’s IQ is like three points higher if I remember correctly. The bigger difference is that the range of IQ in girls is less wide than the range in boys. So the smartest people in the world are probably mostly men, but the dumbest people in the world are also mostly men.

  • I remember reading somewhere that men are more logical thinkers. There is a reason why the STEM field is mainly dominated by men. Women are more intuitive and instinctual, or something along those lines, which is why we dominate the teaching, nursing, psychology, etc.

    It has nothing to with societal gender roles or whatever, the male and female are just different. This has already been scientifically proven.

    • Back to your 25 of age, and all that - men mature slower because their secondary sex characteristics are a somewhat permanent result of increased testosterone (and somatotropin) levels between the age of 13 to 25 or so. Their hormone levels thus make them slightly more impulsive than the average woman, whose hormones peak in their teens, and are relatively constant after that (with a default fluctuation due to periods, of course). There are other factors that constribute to men maturing slower, but rest assured, intelligence solidifies much earlier.

    • The psych major answered all your questions

  • I'm not sure this is a gender thing, kinda an individual thing (though I don't know all the differences between male and female brains, so correct me if I'm wrong.) Maybe intelligence differs in certain categories, but I'd generally say no.

  • Everyone has an individual intelligence, men and women over the large scale equal out. There are different types of intelligence, some are mostly better with other genders. Women tend to be better at emotional intelligence while men tend to be better at kinesthetic intelligence, and other examples. In my day to day life, I find it's pretty equal too. The genders have different cultures too which can lead both side to have what seems like mass stupidity but both sides have those kind of people.

  • Nope. Most people say boys are smarter than us but they are lazier. So they catch up the stuff real quick not like girls however some boys don’t like studying and they are just lazy. Personally I think guys are more catchy if it comes to new stuff but girls are literally as smart as guys. It really only depends on you.

  • I think it's mixed results on the genders' intelligence. It also depends on the location. Since women have recently been encouraged to follow their careers and education, it's become more balanced out. But scientifically, women's and men's brains aren't the same, but intelligence is something that grows, not something you're automatically born with.
    And it's not a sexist question; it's a legit inquiry.

  • Everyone has a different intelligence level so everyone is different. There will always be someone who is smarter than someone else (or someone who thinks they're smarter than someone else). So sex doesn't really matter, there are smart women and there are smart men. So smartness varies but it has been proven that women do indeed mentally mature faster then men, meaning we behave and react to things differently. Mental mature-ness also varies from woman to woman as well were you will have high mature-ness or low mature-ness meaning some girls are still maturing. Same gos for guys.

  • No. On average men and women score the same in IQ tests - however the difference is that there's more variance in men's IQ scores with more at the high and and more at the low end, whereas women tend to cluster around the mean.

    So more women tend to be of average intelligence, while there are more male idiots and more male geniuses.

      Like I said, it's a well known pattern, with multiple studies confirming these results. You can believe whatever you want to believe and continue to lie to yourself to make yourself feel smart if you want. Otherwise you have no real argument and I won't bother to respond further, because as is usually the case on this site, arguing with an idiot is like trying to play chess with a pigeon: no matter how well you play they'll shit on the board, knock over all of the pieces and strut around like they've won.

    • mathematician here, if the chart is legit, englisc is right: 'So more women tend to be of average intelligence, while there are more male idiots and more male geniuses'

  • It depends on what. There are skills that men are inherently better than better than better at than women such as heavy labor fighting and cooking. Women are the child rearing and source of family love and joy in our lives, a true gift from almighty God. Of course there are areas of thought and logic that make a woman Superior to men dexterity of thought in certain areas as well as certain areas where men surpass you ladies. Fact of the matter is we were designed to compliment each other. To work as a unit. To reproduce, live, work, and love as one in heart and mind. Men as to the law of nature for any , close to rational animal , the man is protector and leader of the family unit. Yeah I know there were civilizations women dominated. They failed. All matriarchia like societies today are small struggling tribes not really even able to be nation's or even countries but nomads following livestock in wagons. Freezing in winter baking in summer. So there it is ladies. I can specifically point to the beginning of the end of our civilization was the day that women got the right to vote. I submit that it should have been one vote per family of a three or more year old child. By then the parents should be mature enough to vote resposibly.. The couple would vote as one. I agree that the lack of rights in that day was reprehensible. I am overjoyed that the jewels of our civilization be covered treasured admired and essential to society in every way I just feel that we were made to work as one so therefore we should do everything as one with nothing being able to be done legally or financially except for small bills. You cash. Single males and females be bound to their family vote and gain there votes as previously stated. No exception for age or sexual preference,. Without regard to sterility or injury if your not a family you don't vote. If you divorce even once you don't vote. And yes ladies in the total package the men have the edge. I love you all and I in no way mean disrespect I just truly feel that it should be this way

      Women are dropping out of college because they think they’re not smart enough, when they’re actually just as smart as male students. This is because it has been imprinted in their brains that they’re dumber than others.

  • You can't actually find a definitive answer for this. Besides there being many areas of intelligence, there are too many skills someone can develop and learn which would increase their intellect on some level, minor or a higher level.

    I would say that girls are generally more concerned with doing well in school compared to boys. But doing well in school only shows that you study well or grasp concepts more easily, or are simply more concerned with it so you try harder
