Dr Paul Irwing:Twice as many men than women have 120 plus IQs

Over the vehement protests of Mrs. Traderrob I offer you this....

Dr Paul Irwing is a senior lecturer in organisational psychology at Manchester University. He claims that men are more intelligent than women.

All the research I've done points to a gender difference in general cognitive ability. There is a mean difference of about five IQ points. The further you go up the distribution the more and more skewed it becomes. There are twice as many men with an IQ of 120-plus as there are women, there are 30 times the number of men with an IQ of 170-plus as there are women.

Something most of us of the male persuasion have known for years.

Just kidding honeeeeeeee.
