The British Journal of Psychology claims that men are, on average, 5 IQ points smarter than women.
Research was based on IQ tests done on 80,000 people and 20,000 students.
Also noted from the study ... up to the age of 14, there was little difference between the two sexes.
Beyond that, it was found that twice as many men have an IQ of 125.
There were 5½ times as many men with IQ's of 155. The paper also points out that women at the same IQ are able to accomplish more than men "possibly because they are more conscientious and better adapted to sustained periods of hard work".
Lol, it was interesting though....
