A new study has found that men are more likely to overrate their own intelligence than women.

Researchers at Arizona State University asked biology students a series of questions about their academic ability.

The results showed that two-thirds of the male students rated themselves above average, while only 54 percent of women did.

Each student was also asked to compare their intelligence to the colleague they most closely worked with. Men were 3.2 times more likely to say they were smarter, regardless of their partner’s sex.

Of the 202 students questioned, 70 were men, 130 women and two identified as neither.

The research was published in journal Advances in Physiology Education.

Gender equality is still a problem in the world.
Personally I dont consider myself smarter than all females but smarter than some becuase im an above average student.

Doesn’t matter about gender, but it is actually a fact that girls are smarter.

I think we are both equally smart, it just matters on your education and how much you focus in school.

Boys are better at maths and science, girls are better at reading and writing.
