I think we found why those 50s housewives were so obedient and incompetent.
My whole life is flashing before my eyes.
I never knew.
I bet they also call her a bitch for being more emotionally intelligent.
inb4 muh standard IQ
- 3% average sex difference is non-sig in social science and IQ correlates to brain interconnection/white matter volume, than overall size/grey matter. Guess which sex wins? [see end]
Meanwhile, who’s making dem IQ GAINS, bro?
Don’t let an inconvenient fact get in the way of your fallacies.
- To quote myself… “But overall, mathematically, the average woman is smarter than the average man because men have a lower average IQ.” It’s sum total/N, those studies you tend to cite reject all the male retards from the sample, biasing the average. “I guess I must have a secret Y chromosome because I understand maths?”
The higher values of FA and lower values of RD suggest that intelligence is associated with higher myelination and/or a higher number of axons particularly in men.
Smarter men have effeminate brains.
Explains the gay thing.

Size means nothing. It’s ironically about density.
the researchers concluded that relative brain size was the most significant predictor of success in the task.
Differences in brain size within a species, such as humans, are relatively small, making it difficult to tease out the effects of brain size and the effects of other factors. For instance, the difference in intelligence between an individual with, say, a brain that’s 1,100 grams and one that’s 1,400 grams (which could be found in humans) is confounded by other variables, including differences in density of neurons, other structural brain differences and socio-cultural factors.
Brain size seems to have nothing to do with scores on standardized intelligence tests, according to a brain-scan study of young children.
They found a strong correlation between the integrity of the white matter and performance on a standard IQ test.
“It also changes how you think about what IQ is measuring,” says Wedeen. The research was published last month in the Journal of Neuroscience.
If white matter is linked to both processing speed and IQ, this raises the question: is intelligence merely a function of how fast your brain works? Previous research has linked processing speed to IQ, but the tests used in the study are measures of general intelligence, including verbal skills, math, and logic. “Processing speed plays a big part in how intelligent you are, but it’s not the only factor,” says Shaw.
The new study is among the first to link a specific neural architecture to IQ in healthy individuals. “Most people have focused on grey matter,” says Shaw. “This is good evidence we should be looking at white matter as well.”
Thompson and his collaborators also analyzed the twins’ DNA, and they are now looking for specific genetic variations that are linked to the quality of the brain’s white matter. The researchers have already found a candidate–the gene for a protein called BDNF, which promotes cell growth. “People with one variation have more intact fibers,” says Thompson.
SUPERIOR FEMALE GENETICS BITCHES
For the spergs: I am joking.
