Are Women Smarter Than Men?
Humans often like to compare superiority over another. Do you feel women excel faster and with higher grades than men? You may be interested in statistics, but what do you think about it from a personal level having been in school / class yourself?
Neither are smarter or better or etc. There is no scientifc evidence proving either, and the statistics which some people quote are based on a tiny tiny amount of the male/female humans on this earth.
If it weren't for the fact that we are not allowed one word posts, I would simply say "YES!" women are smarter than men. lol
Seriously, though, we would have to define smart. From a pure level of intelligence, it is doubtful. However, fewer females have learning disabilities than do males. Also, I believe the average woman is more in tune with her surroundings and how she and her environment affect others. That can make her appear more intelligent. I think women tend to be deeper thinkers than men. So, maybe they are more intellectual, but not necessarily more intelligent.

I am only going to answer this based on my experiences when I was in school. Growing up, I saw more girls excel academically than boys. Even when I was in college, and there were more males than females, the females were usually at the top of the class. So, based on my experience, I would have to say it would seem women were academically superior to males.

From my own personal experience, I think the driving force behind "well-educated" is ambition. You can be smart, but not educated; and educated but not smart. A person can be smart, but not educated because he/she doesn't have enough ambition to see it through. I don't think it's a question of intelligence, necessarily, and I don't think it's gender-related.
A person can be well-educated but not smart because they don't apply the things they learn. I know a woman who earned a Masters Degree in college, but she still speaks as if she didn't graduate high school. For example, "I don't got no money," and "I seen that," and "I've did that."

It is obvious men are smarter than women. If not how come all top business positions and almost all top political positions are men. No matter how intelligent you are if you can't then make something happen with it you aren't too smart.
