Re: Who Is Genius?

Well, according to some research, females are supposed to be 'smarter' than males, but it depends on several factors.

For example, the male brain cannot multitask as well as the female brain.

Re: Who Is Genius?

I don't think gender has anything to do with someone's potential to be a genius.

Re: Who Is Genius?

But it has been proven. But as I said, it depends on what you mean by the terms 'genius' or 'smarter'.

Re: Who Is Genius?

I read somewhere that on average, females are more intelligent than males, but males' IQs vary more. So more females than males are "clever", but more males than females are geniuses (genii? genies?).

I can't remember where I got that fun fact from though, so it's completely possible that it's absolute rubbish. smile

Women also have more tunnel vision, so they can focus more.

Or was that men??? Pfft I can't remember.

Re: Who Is Genius?

LOL ... in my experience women can do many things at once where a man would say "Stop! One at a time, please!"

When I taught at Uni, the male students were generally a sorry bunch, but there were some outstanding ones. Whereas most of the female students were acceptably good.

I had one theory: social groups. The male students would gather at the back of the class and talk sport or make jokes, but the female students mostly payed attention. The male students that did well stayed away from the group at the back and focussed on the subject - it was obvious that they wanted to achieve.

BTW I heard on a TV program that while men are typically stronger, they have less tolerance of medium weights. So a man will carry the shopping bags for 5 minutes and then want to put them down.

Re: Who Is Genius?

I would say females are smarter because KEHS which is a girls school got top results for GCSES in the country while it's neighbour KES which is a boys school wasn't even mentioned in the list.

Re: Who Is Genius?

The person with the highest IQ in the world is a woman, Marilyn vos Savant. Her exact IQ is not known, although highest estimates are around 230.

Funnily enough, the 'Genius Gene Pool' happened to be showing tonight. Not that it's very related to this, although it is interesting that someone (Robert Graham) intended to breed geniuses.

Who is Genius?

None of us is answering the question. Genius is the name of a person. You're all thinking that the question was asking what gender is a genius. Notice that 'genius' is capitalised. And that there is no 'a' before 'genius'.

Yeah, I know what was actually meant by that statement. smile

Re: Who Is Genius?

I don't think females are generally smarter than boys. They could be good at exams, but a study shows that in history females are better at static situation while males are better at altering enviroment and today's exams apparently have a high rate of question repeptitivity (The exam makers say they cannot make the questions vary too much otherwise common answerers may find them frustrating and the cost for making them will be too high).

Re: Who Is Genius?

When do you think we'll ever find out for certain which gender is smarter? Perhaps we are supposed to never find out. All that has been said so far has been based on observations, experiments, and surveys. What we really need is a stringent mathematical proof.

Hey, males aren't like that, just stupid other kids do that.

A good majority of males are very different from the rest.
