I'd like to just point out the irony in a woman asking such an ignorant question.
That comment says a lot more about your choice in men than it does about men in general. I'll take you any time, any where any subject, Sister.
Men are less intuitive due to less connective tissue in the brain and therefore have less situational readiness than women. I have to admit women can be very smart! <br />
Men use more rational thinking and logic to understand each situation or experience causing them to solve complex problems more efficiently. In effect women don't have the same ability to analyze the outcome of a stupid question. A woman's intuition will tell them that other women will simply drop something in about how much they got screwed over by their last boyfriend or whatever the hell is upsetting you today SammLAS.
Why do you think you are dumber than women? It's not healthy to put yourself down like that.
Hm.....*waits for bitchfest*<br />
Open mouth. Insert foot. All done.
Yes women mature faster than men but the statement women are smarter than men is strictly an opinion not a fact. We all have an equal opportunity to learn the exact same material. Its how well we listen and store this material that determines how smart we truly are. Therefore we are equaly smart and at the same time equaly dumb.
Thats just the men you are around. I on the other hand am a male who loves to learn and take in as much as i possibly can. I have also been told by many of my good friends, wich are all brilliant woman, that i am extremely smart especially for my age. Not all men are stupid and not all woman are smart. My advice for you is change the men you around. If they truly are how you say, they arent worth your time.
We are only bumber when we think with the "little head"......... LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Yeah but some of us are getting smarter ;-)<br />
Addumin; He's probably looking for you :-D
In my experience, anyone who tries to make the case that their gender is more intelligent only makes their gender look dumber. Since much more women seem to think they're smarter, I think we have proof of the actual smarter sex.
If you feel that you are very smart, then the smart thing to do would be to consider the possibility that you may not be attractive to men who are smart. <br />
Is it possible that they see you as someone who tends to make sweeping generalizations about entire groups of people? As the sage once said, "Know thyself."
Because they think with the wrong head.....
Actually men are dumber than women. We're smarter as well. Most studies have shown that when examining the levels of intelligence in the sexes men gravitate towards the polar extremes. Steven Hawking on one end, George W. Bush on the other. Women make up a majority of the middle and then the numbers thin out as you get closer to one extreme or the other. So Moonpenny, don't feel too high and mighty just because you've met some stupid men. Remember. odds are you're smack dab in the middle. The flavorless rice cake in the spectrum of intelligence.
simple. women think twice.
A bit less mature for some but not dumb like this question
I'm a pretty smart guy in most subjects
I think your question answers itself, and it's not the one you think.
They aren't dumb; just less likely to be self-actualized and aware of subtleties in communication and the fact that they create so many of their own problems trying to be tough. They'd rather protect their ego and live in a self-made prison than sacrifice or be vulnerable for love.
Just because you can vote, you don't have a lock on intelligence.
