Who is smarter? Men or women?
The newest studies made by Prof. Adrian Furnham showed very interesting fact. Men are convinced to be more clever than they really are. The average male estimation of their IQ is about five IQ points higher than their real IQ. While women usually underestimate their values.
In fact there are no substantial differences between male and female IQ values. But there are many different areas where do the sexes score in IQ tests. Doing the same test, each of them use another part of their brain. Men are above women in spatial perception, women are great in emotional intelligence.
The other big diference is in the distribution around the average IQ. All women have very similar results, while men reach either excellent or wretched score. Our statistics also confirm this statement.
The conclusion is that men are more self- confident but not smarter than women are!
