Women Smarter Than Men

Pull up those pants lads, we have to get going!

Multitasking means women now smarter than men

New Proof That IQ Tests Show Women Are Smarter Than Men | The Philly Post

"Since the IQ test was invented a century ago, males and females have been taking it, and the former have outscored the latter, often by as much as five points. (If you’re wondering how much difference five IQ points can make, you’ve never tried to get your kid into the gifted program at school.) But that’s all in the past."


What are we going to do??????????????????

When did lack of focus become multitasking? We have our work cut out boys, now they are smarter in addition to always being right. Sorry ladies. :-)

I'm not worried.

An IQ test does not measure intelligence, actually. It measures how much you care about your IQ score. I don't care about my IQ, because experience and cunning beats youth and textbooks any day of the week.

As for IQ making a difference on what schools your kids get into…

See this article: What Does IQ Really Measure? - ScienceNOW

Then, just before you have your kids take the IQ test, promise them money for getting a higher score, like perhaps a dollar for each IQ point over 100. Virtually guaranteed they'll score higher with the right motivation, at least according to the National Academy of Science.

IQ is very subjective. How do you measure the IQ of someone who can't read test questions? How would someone with a high IQ do in the jungle where reading is of no value? Women are better at multitasking which gives them an edge in modern society with facebook, cellphones, and computers. My wife can't focus one one single thing at all. She can burn up that facebook though.

Did women make up that IQ test? I found the test on the internet:

1. Where is the nearest mall?

2. What is your favorite color: teal, lavender, caput mortuum, almond toast, or gamboge?

3. Where is the cosmetics counter in the nearest mall?

4. What are your favorite kitchen tools?

5. Are men necessary?

The difference is in the programming.

Before you guys get me in trouble, I was just stating a FACT.

Sometimes we can change things, (but usually not without a lot of pain) and this might be one of those difficult long recovery's that we are going to have to live with until we learn to watch soap operas, talk on the phone, etc, and etc, and still dump the sewer tank.

I better go camping now while I am still able.

Ah, the universal dichotomy between FACT and TRUTH.

I'm still not worried about someone telling me women are smarter based on some dumb test. Apparently, the women aren't worried, either. At the time I started this post, not one woman has even posted to this thread.

More women than men are going to college and graduating. Eventually they will have all the best jobs and I may have to learn to type with more than 2 fingers.

If I were younger, I'd look forward to staying at home, dusting a little, making a meal sometimes, pleading with Barb to take me out to dinner, going out to lunch with men, reading naughty novels, and watching the Food Channel and shopping networks (well, maybe not that). I could be on Real Househusbands of Crawford. I'd be glad not to have to be pregnant though.

On RealHousehusbands we could talk about—do we have to take a bath more than once a week, does deodorant make us feminine, what is the best beer (i.e., which has the most alcohol), our favorite sports, our favorite jeans for dress up, does underwear have to be replaced when only the waistband is left, our favorite free porn sites.

Don't forget proper scratching and adjusting! Also got to be some kind of a tool shopping day.
I'm all in Gene!
