who do you think is smarter,men or women?
Personally I dont believe in IQ tests(because I regularly score 1) and I think smartness is something to do with creativity or original thought.Can you be more specific with your question?
The question needs a third option/answer: people who don't ask this question.
Men obviously, not even sure why there is a poll.
I have this IQ test story to relate:
My husband recently thought we should both take the same free on-line IQ test (in which the results are emailed to you). He took it, got his results, then set it up for me to take and handed the laptop over. About a half-an hour later he happily announced that they revised his score upward, at which point I had to say:
"But honey... you set it up to email MY results to your email too."
Think that settles the point in OUR family at least.
if smartness equates to getting along in life and getting your way, then women are clearly more on the ball.
Men are on average way starter than women. This gets upside down if you take me out of the average though.
I just asked my wife and she says men are much smarter than women. She also adds "Now take out the garbage, put the dishes in the dishwasher, take out the laundry, bring me some chocolates, and get the car warmed up, we're going shopping for jewelry."
And presumably you are smart enough to do all these things, right?
Indeed. Strong like bull, smart like chicken.
I'm not touching this with a 10ft pole.
What's your definition of 'a smart person'?:tongue:
I can see why you beat him :tongue2:
I wouldnt say either one is smaarter than the other, rather they are just better at diffrent things.
It's true that women are better than men at getting pregnant.
I must say that, the problem with answering seriously to this discussion is that it assumes it can be taken seriously.
Which pet is smarter : the cat, the dog, or the girlfriend ?
Last year, one of my students told me that he wanted to marry a smart woman, so I jokingly (? ) told him that if he married a smart woman, he would just lose more arguments.
I know; I have first-hand experience.
Its better to loose the argument when she understands you though.
and this is an insult because it implies I would have called myself stupid, or because it implies I have voted for "women" ? Yes, I am a man and I have voted for "women"... In any case, I think this poll is insulting, and one should not even try to argue seriously about how dull it is, because it so low that it does not deserve to be treated seriously.
See, being a professional physicist, people picture me as clever all the time, as soon as they know what my profession is. As a consequence, it creates a bias in my discussions with them, and since they tend to give too much value to my opinions, it prevents me sometimes from benefiting from their own knowledge and experience. It frustrates me, honestly, and it is a stereotype that physicists are more clever than average people. Physicists are very good at science, but they often have a lot to learn on the human side. So to think that stereotypes as elementary as "women vs men intelligence" are still out there, it only reminds me how long it will take before it is generally recognized how we all have to learn from each others.
And now I feel like deleting the serious part of my message... D*mn
Still arguing about this? Women always argue everything... not going to win this one...
