    Although if you ask a man what's wrong he will rarely say "nothing".

    Great. So we're reduced to just breasts. Really nice.

    About the spatial recognition thing, an anecdote:

    Road trip with a woman, goal an entire day - especially a morning - in a State Park of interest.

    So we set out the day before, and booked into a motel that night, on a side road a couple of miles south of the Park.

    The next morning we are leaving the parking lot of the motel, and the question arises as to which way to turn unto the road.

    So I listen as my companion derives, through recapitulation of the turns and landmarks leading into the motel (observed the previous evening after sundown), whether we should turn right or left. This takes about three minutes, is completely logical, and provides the correct answer - left. North, she determines, is to the left.

    The entire derivation is accomplished out loud, involving three turns recalled and four or five landmarks. The whole time the bright blazing ball of the rising sun is firing directly through the windshield into our faces - it's blinding, I have to be careful making my left turn.

    I could not have recapitulated those turns, or recalled those landmarks and their associated rights and lefts, even as the driver - let alone the passenger, which she was.

    I have no way of evaluating the comparative intelligence of the two of us in that circumstance. Vive la difference.

    Ya I hear a lot about how men are the spatial ones and women are the verbal ones. But you have to remember, those are small differences in degree, not absolutes. Men have a small edge in spatial skills, women have a small edge in verbal. It doesn't mean women can't navigate and men can't communicate properly.

    I have a super long ring finger on my left hand, and a short one on my right hand. Does that mean the left side of my body got a big dose of testosterone, while my right side didn't get any?

    Don't be silly!
    There's more to women than breasts.

    The study proves shit. Some men are fucking stupid and some are not entirely stupid.

    I think its a matter of ambition. A man has more to gain by achieving than does a woman in terms of evolutionary fitness. A single man can sire and support quite a few children while a woman can at most have ~20. Women in general don't seek out glory the way men do, and I think it may be due to genetics. Also, we may have been breeding women for looks rather than brains for the past few thousand years.

    A woman needs to achieve too. 20 children is not a good idea. A better strategy is to have fewer children and provide for them well.

    Hm, thats true. But achievement is not necessarily the same for a man as for a woman.. Speaking from experience, women often have different goals than men, although this has been changing somewhat during the last hundred years or so.

    I agree, for a female its a better idea to have fewer children and provide for them. But if a male has a large amount of resources he can provide for a few hundred children while a woman can't possibly have that many. So, there is a 'cap' to how greatness affects a woman's reproductive fitness, which does not affect men's reproductive fitness. The link at the beginning of the thread explains it well in terms of alphas and advantageous mutations.

    Isn't it unhealthy to have more than like 8 children ??

    And why women engage less in self-destructive behaviour, and have less car accidents? Has this something to do with intelligence?

    Of course mean are smarter than women. My husband married me and I married him. That proves the intelligence of both of us

    Women think and remember differently from us guys: So what's new? My wife can remember faults I made ten, twenty, even thirty years ago. I'm lucky if I can recall the specifics of where she screwed up yesterday. Apparently if you can't be utterly specific and detailed it does not count.

    Besides, it's not a good idea to win an argument with one's SO. The winner ofttimes is the loser.

    Women have lots of features besides breasts. There's things like calves, thighs, rear ends (there was more than one crude song about that), waists, faces, eyes, hair, ..., and some guys even get into gross **** like feet. (That is one fetish that I cannot comprehend.)

    Oh, yeah, and some women have brains. Not very many, but then again not very many men are endowed with brains either.

    I find the results suspect.
    Is not the spread of 3.6 IQ points a trivial difference, well within the margin of error?
    Was not the test designed by men? And tested upon one (pubescent) age group?
    Does not the full aspects of intelligence go beyond cognitive memory skills, and include how data is effectively "put to use" by the intelligent being?

    So now women are just butts and nice curvy parts.

    I feel like sticking a knife into some of you dudes.

    DH summed it up quite well, I think.

    Why does it take 100 million sperm to fertilize one egg then? It’s because none of them will stop and ask for directions.

    The g-factor…pleeease! Give me a break. They can’t even find the g-spot. Of course, they are going to score high on this test. They’ve been getting everything backasswards their whole life. Let them think what they want as long as they continue to work and hand over the money…:mufc:
