  • Science has shown that the male brain is faster and smarter than the female brain.

    The average IQ of a man is 7.5 to 9 points higher than the average IQ of a woman. Men also have a 10% to 20% higher variance in IQ. This increase in mean, along with the greater deviation means that the higher up the IQ graph you go, the more likely you are a man. Men and women are 50/50 up to an IQ of 100; when you get to an IQ of 115 there are 2 men for every 1 woman; and at an IQ of 145 there are 10 men for every 1 woman.

    A man's brain is, on average, 10% to 12% larger than a woman's brain, resulting in a significant improvement in processing power. A man's brain has 19% more neocortical neurons for processing, 16% more white matter for connectivity, and 28% more neocortical glia to keep up with energy costs. Consequently, men’s brains are more modular, more lateralized and optimised towards an intra-hemispheric configuration whereas women’s brains are more diffused and fall back to an inter-hemispheric configuration. While there are certain benefits to both configurations, the mechanical advantages to men is apparent in task performance such as:

    - Language Processing
    - Non-verbal Intelligence
    - Visuospatial Processing

    Some might argue that women are currently outperforming men, and thus the neurological evidence must be wrong. However, as women are given all sorts of advantages in school, University, and many high paid jobs, it is impossible to tell who outperforms who without an equal measuring stick.

    So the current performance of men vs women is unfortunately a biased result. The neurological evidence, however, is not.

    So it is demonstrable fact that men are smarter than women - unfortunately, women often take this to mean they are incapable compared to a man.

    This is simply not true. The advantages men have in intellect basically mean they will pick up on things quicker, but it by no means limits what women can or cannot do. Intellectually, women can do whatever men can do, it's just that men are generally better at it.

  • Women on average are smarter

    More women are enrolled in college, women have less car accidents, less traffic tickets, less crimes, are less likely to abuse alcohol and drugs, less likely to participate in risky behavior, less likely to abandon their children, more likely to get the bills paid, usually take better care of their physical health

  • We vary by intelligence

    In some cases, a woman may outdo a man hands down. In other cases, a man may wipe the floor with any woman. (In terms of intelligence).

    Partly, I am voting YES to even out the score, as the results are kind of biased.

    Over all, we are on average, equal. Evidence on either side does nothing to prove one over the other.

  • One word; Inventions

    The majority of everything important has been developed by males, an education system that is built for female learning patterns, the fact that females mature earlier than males, affirmative action and an abundance of female support groups, also lack of male motivation are just some reasons as to why males are smarter, taking all of these factors into account, males still seem to perform on par with women. I believe males are smarter with logic and reason whereas women are more emotionally intellectual, this is not to say that males aren't emotional or that females cannot be logical and rational but this seems to be the average. It is sad that many people seem to view females as smarter while providing no evidence to their claims. For example an answer here stating males are "macho" and women make "rash decisions" or that our attention span is lesser which is unknown as of yet.

  • Yes, this is true, partially

  • It doesn't matter

    I chose men for the sake of picking the first option in front of me, but as a whole I think that men and women are the same general level of intelligence. One group really can't be said to be significantly smarter than the other, and so on and so forth.

  • BOTH can be great!

    Basic biology and religion are the seeds to gender stereotypes. Men think they are better than Women because of physical strength. WHO GAVE BIRTH TO YOU MEN?! WOMEN! Women think they are better because they can give birth to both sexes. Women give life, but Men AND Women destroy it! Sexism goes BOTH ways!

  • No, but their intelligence does vary.

    There are men who think like women and women who think like men but in general men tend to be more spatially intelligent, excelling in areas like manual arts, geometry, engineering and so on. Women tend to be more verbally and artistically intelligent but there are a lot of exceptions to this rule.

    When the IQ's are averaged, men's and women's are the same but they tend to be more men at the extremes of intelligence. IE. more male genius's as well as more males who are mentally retarded.

  • Women are "smarter" then men.

    This question will be answered differently by the different sexes, but this is my opinion. Men are macho and make rash decisions. Their attention span is not as long as a woman. (a woman never forgets) I don't think it is a matter of smarter or not. I think it is just a matter of common sense.

  • Women are smarter where it matters.

    When it comes to traditional understandings of what constitutes intelligence, especially ones measurable with statistics such as income, number of higher level degrees, education, etc. one would likely conclude that men are "smarter" than women. This shallow and self-serving conclusion fails to account not only for the thousands of years of social conditions that hampered women's natural intelligence but also the pervasive sexism in academia and society itself.

  • One gender is not any smarter than the other.

    I do not feel that men or women can be labeled as smarter than the other just because of gender. One's intelligence should only be weighed by the ability to function on particular levels and not their gender. Much depends on one's education though much of it also depends on the upbringing of the individual. I've heard that females learn more quickly than males. If so, that still doesn't make them smarter.
