Study shows men think they are brainier than women

April 9, 2018

A new study has found that men are more likely to overrate their own intelligence than women.

Researchers at Arizona State University asked biology students a series of questions about their academic ability.

The results showed that two-thirds of the male students rated themselves above average, while only 54 percent of women did.

Each student was also asked to compare their intelligence to the colleague they most closely worked with. Men were 3.2 times more likely to say they were smarter, regardless of their partner’s sex.

Of the 202 students questioned, 70 were men, 130 women and two identified as neither.

The research was published in journal Advances in Physiology Education.

It is equally the same with Intelligent 🤓. Well actually only if the both of them really focused in school/high school/ University
