Interesting--just googled a couple of sites which report on recent papers that say just the opposite, that on average men score slightly higher on IQ tests.
Men score 5 points higher on average than women do, there is no debating it multiple sources abdicate the same findings. at least google before you start peddling such rubbish. Having studied this extensively for years I have found it to be the truth as well, however women with similar I.Qs to men appear to be able to sustain work effort longer, this may lead to success in areas it was thought men should dominate
What else would you propose a ruling matriarchy should do with 3.5 billion men? Enslavement? Select a few for reproductive purposes and slaughter the rest? <br />
Have you ever been to family court? Believe me, it's hard to find a case there where a man was treated as anything other than a subordinate.
Men may rule the world, but women rule men. Argo...
It's "ergo", not "argo".
The fact that different people have different IQ's doesnt mean a thing to me. Whether there is a gender element to that matters even less to me. <br />
I have known people with huge IQ scores who have been unable to function in social situations, or very birght but with no common sense <br />
I think that IQ should be replaced by the ATLQ - ability to live quotient. That would include IQ, common sense, morals, compassion etc
women can never be equal to men.. Men are and will always be the superior gender.
Darn. That was a sexist comment.
"Does the fact that _women have higher IQs than men_ make them superior"<br />
A person's IQ is specific to them and doesn't reflect a person's sex. Just my opinion. ;o)
The first part of the question is what everyone needs to remember:)
I try not to judge anyone by their IQ's, or I'll get a mouthful from mystic eyes on here, however I find that when it comes to Political News, Auto Mechanics, Military History, I find that Men are more Intellegent. Women are commpassionate and smart when it comes to Parenting, and Spiritual things. Their more intune.
Just to clearify for everyone, JB4J has seen her arse, courtesy of yours truly. :o) You should see my inbox, it's pathetic!
LOL! Now that was funny!
an inferior psyche will always want to feel superior ... best to be equals
Sure why not lol
Men score 5% more on average than women on IQ tests.
The real question is, should we still consider women equals after they have hidden behind us expecting us to fix their problems when they ask for it?
Chipmunk Ernie is right. What he reports is what IQ tests have shown all along. And something that's noteworthy is this : there are more retarded men than women. However as you go up the ladder on above-average IQ points, the gender disparity gets bigger and bigger, to the point where at the genius level it's almost entirely male. This has ramifications. It means that greater male achievements are not the result of purported disadvantaging of women. It means that no policy engineering is going to result in society having equal numbers of male and female high achievers.
