Are men more intelligent than women?
« Reply #25 on: 22/04/2009 08:40:30 »
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

Er, Fishtails - you wouldn't happen to be married to me, would you?

Hmmm, This strikes a chord. Whenever some bloke on Constipation St. does a naughty on his Mrs, I get a clump round the ear and a rendition of 'MEN! You're all the same'.

According to scientists men are 20% intelligent then women, But how can this be... And actually who is more intelligent

 Men Or Women



Not ALL men are 20% more intelligent... you should proofread your post!

5 points is nothing- if you practice for the IQ test your measured IQ goes up more than that; possibly a typical test is slight male favouring (for example if you add a few spatial orientation questions to a test, men on average do better on those than women, so men would test higher). But as I say, 5 points is nothing.

I have heard though that men's IQs are wider distributed than women's whose are more normative. In other words, there's more smart and more dumb guys than there are smart and dumb gals.

No man with any intelligence would ever suggest men are more intelligent than women in front of an audience containing women. Unless he gets a kick out of being beaten.  ;)
