A recent article that was published in the Houston Chronicle by Eric Berger (the SciGuy):
- A study of 1,261 adults, published in 1992 by zoologist C. Davison Ankney, found that men's brains were about 8 percent heavier than those of women.
- A 1997 study in Denmark documented that men have about 15 percent more neurons -- the functional unit of the brain -- than women.
- And now comes this conclusion from research by Canadian scientists:
A study of 100,000 17- to 18-year-olds on the Scholastic Assessment Test published in the September 2006 issue of the journal Intelligence, has confirmed a surprising new finding-that men have a 4- to 5-point IQ advantage over women by adulthood.
Because girls mature faster than boys, the sex difference is masked during the school years, which explains why the sex difference was missed for 100 years. The new study, based upon an analysis of SAT scores that correlates to IQ, appears to confirm earlier work, using a different methodology, that concluded adult men have IQs 3.3 to 5 points higher than women.
Now after reading this, I wasn't sure if it was true so I had to ask someone who is very wise. I asked Karen and she said it is not true. Given that her motto is that the wife knows best, I am inclined to agree. Of course, I may be saying that for my own personal safety.
Take care xx
I suggest you just thro that article away and forget you ever read it. Personal safety should be your first priority.
So don't you think Adam should have been smart enough not to eat the poisoned fruit that Eve offered him?
Of COURSE men are smarter than women. Why is this question even open for debate?
