10 Reasons Why It's Better To Be a Man

Sort of. Recent IQ test studies show that men, on average, score 5 points higher than women. But these findings are not exactly without flaw. The correlation seems not to be gender-specific but rather size-specific. Larger people have larger brains, which means more neurons, and thus, higher intelligence. Of course this is not always the case (Albert Einstein didn’t have a particularly large brain), but it does appear to be the general trend.

Another consideration is the subjective nature of IQ tests – for example, men perform better in tests of spatial intelligence, while women excel in linguistic intelligence. Who’s to say which types of intelligence are more valuable? Nowadays, more women are graduating from college than men – I like to think that’s a more significant coup than five measly – and questionable – IQ points.
