Women Are More Intelligent Than Men
Did you know that women are more intelligent than men? OK, so the claim is a little controversial and needs some explanation.
Several recent studies have claimed that women now tend to have higher intelligence quotient (IQ) than men. It seems that for the first time women are scoring higher than men on traditional IQ tests.
For many years intelligence tests have been used as a benchmark of how individuals reason, learn, assimilate data and make decisions. IQ has been used to predict things like scholastic performance
Experts always point out that IQ tests do not necessarily indicate who is closest to being a genius. Even the term "intelligence" is difficult to define, but it does say something about the ability to learn, reason and adapt.
For the first time in history, more than 50 percent of college graduates are women; and they also tend to have more advanced degrees. In addition more women than men are successfully juggling the responsibilities of full time job and family.
Casual observation shows that women tend to be able to color outside the lines, to multitask and to adapt. These qualities are not unique to women, certainly, but they tend to be more obvious, accepted and acceptable in women. Coincidentally, aren't these same qualities necessary for success in our personal and professional lives?
These studies make for interesting reading and conjecture, but the bigger take-away is that while some survival skills come easier to some than others, those skills can certainly be learned by anyone.
