Are Men Smarter than Women?

Not if we hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights.

It evens out.  At Undergraduate schools, why are men the large majority in Engineering fields while women are more abundant in Nursing departments?

because we are endowed by our divine creator with varying unalienable talents.  Men are more gifted at distinct activities than women - vice versa.

I'd like to agree to disagree. We both recognize that "the problems facing the AA community are vast" and complex. Let's leave the rest for another day. Shall we?

Whoa! WHoa Whoa! I never claimed that Africans are superior to anyone. I was responding to a specific point which I thought would clarify things to Dakmanzero and others. I did suggest that the disparity btw African males & females in college & Unis in America is very small

Secondly, I do recognize the effects of racism & slavery on the black community. As you said, I could write pages. But since we're on the same page, I won't.

But my dear, the disparity has more to do with the influence of t.v. Remember, black women are the most demeaned women on this planet, in America especially. So that should affect men more than women. The saying goes, "Charity starts at home." So with other things. It all begins in the home. So a disparity btw men & women in college - any race - has to do with the home. And a disparity of 7 to 1! Haba! The tele ain't doing all that.

@Dakmanzero

I can't complain. Thanks for the insight.

i meant to say, culture play a role in determining which gender is smarter, maybe you didnt really understand my post

there is a difference between African American and Africans

as chinani said, my answer was based on general assumptions(stats) and it was also based by my own experiences. thats

I was kind of nodding my head to your post until the bit where you contradict yourself  by saying that african american girls (same culture as the african american guys) are generally highly succesful and intelligent.

Not to propose anything to the contrary, but you should take note of these two facts:

1) Your point is to prove that intelligence may be more culture-dependent than gender-dependent

2) You are an African Female

These, combined with your statement, have punched holes throughout your argument. If *you* are highly succesful and intelligent, it shouldnt detract from what you have observed about the *generality* of Africans, and thus shouldnt lead you to add a subtle bias to your otherwise wellbalanced post.

Bolex - ask your mother, or grandmother, or auntie, or sister, or friend, who's smarter. Better yet - define "smart". Is it a baby spider who knows how to weave its web the moment it's hatched? Is is a blade of grass that penetrates man-made cement? Intelligence is God given - it has nothing to do with gender. You wouldn't eat were it not for the 3/4ths of the world's population largely made of women who cull and harvest the world's basic food sources. Ditch your smug chauvinism and be thankful that God put the women and men in your life who are essential to your growth and being.

This issue has been resolved in the 19th century. men and women have the same intelligence. As a matter of fact, the frontal lobes in women are much larger than that in men.though women have smaller brains, it is generally because women have smaller body frames than men.

reserch has shown that men are indeed smater than women because men have a part of their brain(front of their left hemisphere) that is responsible for deep thinking and spartial activities while women dont have that in their brains. thats no matter how smart women are they are never inventors u can name a few invention made by women but 90% of the things invented in this world were invented by men. Its a mans world no doubt that why most of the leaders in the world are men and thats why there are more heros than heroines in the world when it comes to smartness and inventiveness. women have a special part of their brain that is responsible for speech while men dont have that thats why women speak better than men, a five year old baby girl speaks 2-3times more than a 5 year old baby boy cos of that difference. so there is no need arguing about this cos the Creator made men smater than women and that remains a fact.

well all i can say is when a woman wants to get something from a man then she uses all her wit and she can be considered as smart to herself and ppl .because he would not reason well if a gril he likes outwitting him he rather is looking at wat he gonna get from her -"physically".

when it is about relationship and getting a man to fall or succumb a woman is smarter but in terms of reasoing complex and illogical problems a man is still and will always b the bossman

I would like there to be equality between the sexes. In many ways there are, but there are some small differences men performed marginally, but consistently, better than women, irrespective of age, ethnicity or social background.

look this is silly, anyone that thinks and believes that he/she is very smart is the dumbest person in the world. the smartest person as far as i know and believe is the one who says that he/she knows nothing and is ready to learn even thought u know he/she is smart.

Guys, i'm saying it again, stop tooting ur horns!!! everyone is smart i their own way. i pray we all live to see the day, time and century when women will overtake men bocs all the men(at least most of them) are thinking of how smart they are which in fact they are not and nothing else.

Men are not smarter than women. But there appears to be scientific evidence that the male and female brains perceive spatial geometry differently. This may give men a slight edge when reading maps and dealing with mathematical problems, but doesn’t necessarily make them any smarter than women.

Also because men undergo less seasonal hormonal changes, they tend to be more focused over a long period of time. Monthly menstrual cycle changes do affect the moods of women, but I do not think this is serious enough to affect brain productivity.

The reason why men have made most inventions is because societies have largely been male-dominated. As things even out, we can expect to see more innovative companies started up by ladies.

Not just that, but as more Africans become educated and partake in science and technology, we can also expect more high-tech discoveries to come from blacks.

Studies suggest that women are slightly more intelligent (or so i read somewhere)

but in my opinion, there are substances in make up, chick fashion, and sitcoms (desperate housewives,sex and the city etc etc) that reduce IQ drastically. So the net effect is, go figure

a CLEAR TOPIC WOULD BE PREFERABLE! The issue of being smart has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with being a Girl or a Guy. I think its rather natural.

@bolex

I am not supposed to be doing dis but i hate being sentimental, If woman can't invent the afformentioned, it still doesnt change a thing, continuity is what keeps us going and of what use is all these invention without life.we need continuity and we need life.

@ all

Shey una nova see man wey dey cheat woman inside exam hall? abi una nova see female professor wey dey teach men to succeed in life ni,i don see guy wey woman dupe and vice versa, so its natural (in my own Opy)

Because they are busy doing more important thing like umm, populating the world so that the human species does not go extinct . I could make a list of more IMPORTANT things that were invented by women but, I'd rather not.

Without a doubt, men are generally smarter than women. There are some smart women, but they are only a handful.

No, men arent smarter than women. They just always try to 'prove' that they are smarter than women.

They know they aren't smarter than women, so they act as though they r smarter, but really, they aren't smart.

Nope, men are not smarter than women. I guess it depends on the individual. It's just as unfair to say that "men are smarter" as it is to say "women are smarter". Each individual is different.
