Men vs. women: Who's smarter?

Posted on August 29, 2005

This question is easy. Of course, women are smarter. Or wait, maybe it's men. Or maybe it's neither.

If you listen to psychologists Paul Irwing and Richard Lynn, you might think men are more intelligent than women by about five IQ points on average. The study is due to be published in the British Journal of Psychology.

The study did involve 24,000 students, but that seems like such a small amount of six billion people who inhabit the earth. Is it accurate? It seems the answer lies with how we define intelligence. So, everyone ... take an IQ test, and let's see who's really the smartest! I'm guessing C, none of the above.
