Are men smarter than women? Tell us!

September 12, 2006

Are men smarter than women?

A study published in the September 2006 issue of the journal Intelligence, certainly seems to agree. The study has confirmed that men have a 4 to 5 point IQ advantage over women by adulthood.

The male-female differences were present at every socioe-conomic level, and across several ethnic groups.

How much water do you think this study holds? Do you think the results reflect a deeper bias?
