There isn't any real comparison there to be honest, men are simply more analytical and logical than woman.
If men and women with the same IQ are compared to each other, yes I would agree that MOST of the time the men will be more logical. However many
posters in this thread are saying "well there aren't any female Einsteins therefore men are smarter than women" which is utterly ridiculous.
There are a heck of a lot of stupid men in the world. Those that believe they are smarter than most women because the share the same XX chromosones as
Einstein are living proof of that.
I think the answer is not so easily defined by simple single-dimension metrics.
Not to brag - but I'm often considered scarily intelligent, observant, and have no restrictions with regards to my aptitudes. My opinions are often
given a lot of weight amongst people who know me.
Of course, I know at least two women whom I consider my superior. Ironically, they tend to come to me (or another guy) to reinforce their viewpoint.
Usually - if they have an plan or idea - I consider it to be brighter than my own.
It just seems women tend to want a male to make a decision.
That's not to say women can't make a decision - but that they tend to prefer to run it by a guy.
I also think that the presence of a male tends to place a woman at ease (of course - assuming their relation is not hostile). One of my friends
consistently notes how my mere 'presence' (even if only online) seems to make it easier for her to work through a variety of homework-related
I've noticed the same thing with other people - a girl will call me over and ask me to help them with a problem, they'll show me what's going on
and go back over their steps, and then find the problem as they are explaining the problem to me (it works even when they are working math that is
well ahead of what I'm studying).
So, I figure it's a sort of confidence thing - knowing that they have someone covering their back, and not competitive in the same manner as guys
Of course, by that same token, when a girl asks me a question - I learn/recall the answer exceptionally quickly - though I don't know if it is for
the same reason girls tend to be more adept when in the presence of a male friend/companion.
