There will NEVER be a female Einstein or Galileo----men at the top of the foodchain are a quantum leap more intelligent than women. You can skewer studies any way you want. This silly skewered study studies only a small age range; when the popular thinking is that men after sixteen began to really accelerate brain-wise. I live on planet earth and I can see with my own eyes that MEN are the ruling brainiacs. What a stupid misguided PC study. Men are SOOOO much smarter then women and it will always be so.

Women's brains develop earlier, at the above age women would be at the most likely peak IQ they will reach. Men brains continue past this age in development, that is why you will see many arguments about how boys should be 2 years behind girls at school. Do the same test on the 25-40 year age group and the men will lead in IQ scores. This is a misleading study. “most between the ages of 15 and 18, Flynn said.”

To make such a simplistic claim such as, "Well, men/women are better because..." is ignorance at it's finest. Sexism on either side is appalling, period. Why the heck is this even news?

If men and women complement each other ni marriage, then the it's a mute topic. Otherwise, what's happend to men. Do men carry the brunt of the stress. Stress is known to kill brain cells. Maybe with a new draft that forces women to start carry the more difficult tasks of life, men will begin to improve some. Women and men are both wonderful creatures. Stop trying to put them against each other. Neither would survive without the other. I fail to see the purpose of which gender has the higher IQ.

I live in south india where females are given more job opportunities and men have to go out of the country, to arab countries just to earn 20000rs working 12hours. Because here they want female, i dont know why? I dont know who is intelligent, but most scientists, engineers are men.

In this new little sample of statistic that was only tested in 5 countries with small handful of people women averaged what .5 higher than the men which is basically the same. Test it again and the result can be exactly the opposite. Let's start using our brain people use common sense.
