It is true, but a persons IQ doesn't represent a persons sex. There are many smart women and men out there, just as much as there are many dumb women and men.
I don't feel one sex is more intelligent than the other, we all have things unique to us that makes us different to each other, let alone the other sex. It's a real shame some people can't get their minds out of the 1920's and into todays world.
Excellent post Mystic! Cheers! :-)
Thank you Nigel. I must point out, I find it highly amusing how some men on here are scraping the barrel with excuses as to the hows and whys this cannot be fact. Learn to live with it fellas, it's not a dent to your ego!
I think it is women that have the ego problem, unable to accept the superiority of the male. This is pure fact , no matter what anyone ,male or female says. The highest ever recorded IQ's do not belong to women! Here are some names and scores for your entertainment and education.

Should it be pointed out that they are ALL MEN? There is no room for ego here. It is just another case of lies being used to make men think that women are superior somehow. Then when they question this (because they are more intelligent-get over it), they are hit with the "ego" card and all the other psychological bull S. This is foolishness as any man and woman knows.
Miss Savant has a score way below these men (even the 228 is erroneous, as stated by the many authors of IQ tests etc, she was also given an old version of the test!) . ,She also has difficulty with and does not understand many things the average male can handle with ease.
They spells gud and they look real purdy hur hur hur
Without a doubt, women are the foundation stone of the society; but always remember who laid them!
a big chicken??
YEAH WHAT'S A MALE CHIKEN CALLED ...HAHAHAHA
The corner stone or "foundation" as you call it is the well educated male. I don't mean modern education,it designed for females, it is a parrot education, what females are best at, following instructions. since it was discovered in the 50's that women could not keep up with the system, it has been adjusted to their favor and is pure boredom for males! The male education system is how a male thinks, he builds and invents, does not follow like women. Get the difference? That's why males are leaders in every field, and women follow only. The only way you see them as "equals" is by government intervention for mandatory equality, such as stupid laws like "there must be places allocated for females at board level" William Sidis 250+, Chris Langan, USA 243 Paul Johns, UK 240 Andreas Gunnarsson, Sweden 235 Thomas R.

You seem to be a bit tense. Why don't you calm down, and go have some milk and cookies?
After English physicist James Chadwick discovered the neutron in 1932, Enrico Fermi and his colleagues in Rome studied the results of bombarding uranium with neutrons in 1934. Fermi concluded that his experiments had created a new element with 94 protons, which he dubbed Hesperium. However, not all were convinced with Fermi's analysis of his results. The German chemist Ida Noddack notably suggested in 1934 that instead of creating a new, heavier element, that "it is conceivable that the nucleus breaks up into several large fragments. However, Noddack's conclusion was not pursued.
No its not true. People mistakenly attribute the highest IQ to Marilyn vos Savant. The Mistaken IQ give to Vos savant is usually either 230,228 or 218 all of which are incorrect. First no IQ can actually get that high. What those scores were were child ratio scores and even as child ratio scores they were incorrect. The ceiling of the test Vos savant took, that some attribute to those 3 scoes, had a ceiling of 167 so scores higher than 167 weren't possible.
Now vos savant is someone also attributed a score of 186 from a test called the Mega Test Vos Savant took in 1985. The problem with the Mega Test is that
its untimed, unsupervised and doesn't have even close to the sample size to say it measures IQ as high as 186.
I have no idea who the other woman would be but the thing is that there are many different Types of IQ test how could anyone really know who scores the highest? What test should we use? The timed supervised ones that psychologist test people on are
not open to public scrutiny.
First, IQ does not measure actual intelligence, but rather the possible capacity for intelligence.
Second, the tests were created by men, hence you see no animals scoring well, nor even able to participate in taking such test. Too bad, too, as I have a gut feeling that if the test weren't so exclusive, many of them may win.
Third, I highly doubt that women own the top two spots, not because I think women are dumb, but again, in what the tests look for and measure, such as spatial logic, and other, mostly 'left brain' stuff, of which men (who, also, incidentally created the tests...lol), by nature, are more accurate.
Remember: Those who write the rules (or tests, in this case) kinda pwnz those that do not. If you wanna win the game, write the rules (and change them if/when necessary)
I will investigate, however, and find out the two that actually hold such 'title'.
Highest IQ's are definitely not women. This is bull S. and ev the average person knows this.
