Men are more intelligent because they pocesses more sulcus

The cerebral cortex is a structure within the brain that plays a key role in memory, attention, perceptual awareness, thought, language, and consciousness.

The left side controls the main parts of analytical thought/thinkng, math, distinguishing things, technical skills, facts,

The right side controls the main parts of creative thought/thinking, imagination, artistry, socializing, etc.

There is a part that integrates the left and the right, it is called the "corpus collosum"

Some of the most intelligent and tallented people have very healthy "corpus collusum" because it's the integration of the left and right brain skills that results in wonderous achievements.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/education/4183166.stm suggests men are 5 points clear on the IQ test. But I've never liked those kind of things. Can't even beat Paris Hilton.  [:-'(] [:-'(]

One individual will be more intelligent than another. I don't think sex comes into it.

Women are said to be better at multitasking, while men are better at concentrating on one thing at a time.

I don't think any statistics prove anything at all.

But one thing is clear men are much more intelligent then women.

  But i need a perfect reason..
 
Can you say why some men are not intelligent.
 Is it fault of the parent sperms or it may be cause of children not developing there skill, or it can be a disorder,..

Lack of Intelligence I think should be a genetic inheritence from parents....

No DNA of parents to the offsprings does not change may be some dominant gene take over the recessive gene during the formation of genes this is why the the reason some childrens are not alike to their parents in many characteristic features like intelligence, speech etc...

They are also 20 times more likely to get a frying pan wrapped around their head for suggesting they are more intelligent than the wife!

And I suspect that in many cases it would be well deserved!

My husband has an amazingly high IQ (I hasten to add, I'm not too far behind myself!  [:I]) and there is no doubt that he is extemely good at lots of things. But he is also severely lacking in several departments. And before that provokes a torrent of suggestions, I will elaborate!

Zero memory, he's always losing things, and can never find anything again once it's lost (and he always accuses me of hiding it, even though we ALWAYS find it somewhere only he could have put it), he can't balance his current account, sometimes even simple maths escapes him (like the time he phoned me to ask how come he was charged £37 when the 2 items he bought cost £16 and £21), he can't work out how to pay the bills (although, granted, that could be sign of super-intelligence there), and he can never work out that it takes more than 5 minutes to get from one engagement to the next when they are 150 miles apart (hence he's always late for everything).

My conclusion? Men are good at some things and women far better at everything else.  ;D
