Content;; The Male Mind > Males: Intelligence
Intelligence in MalesIt has always been known for some reason that men have greater intelligence than women. There is a huge stereotype that always says that men are good at math and science (which requires more thinking) and women are good at the language arts components. In 2005, there was a study taken that compared the brains of men and women. This showed that women had more white matter and fewer gray matter areas related to intelligence. It concludes saying that men and women apparently achieve similar IQ results with different brain regions.
Men are generally good at seeing things in three dimensions and being able to imagine how things rotate.
Men and women have the same average IQ. Women perform better on tests of memory and verbal proficiency. Men perform better on tests of mathematical and spatial ability. Male scores display a higher variance: there are more men than women with both very high and very low IQs.

Problem SolvingIt is known worldwide that men are by far the more violent sex. I know this sounds really prejudice, but the previous statement is a known fact. Statistics on aggression and anger prove when it comes to a conflict, men are in a different league than women.
Guys and their issuesEven at a very young age, males display aggression more often than females. In 1989, Professor Rita Simon from the Department of Justice, Law and Society at the American University had a stufy looking at the role of sex in violent crimes. This study looked upon homicide rates in 31 countries across a time span of 18 years and found no time of country in which female agression exceeded that of male aggression.
In 1994, Professor Candace Kruttschnitt in the Department of Sociology, University of Minnesota analysed crime data. Kruttschinitt discovered that in the USA, men commit 85.5% of simple assaults, 87.3% of aggravated assaults, and 88.5% of homicide.
Recently, girls are getting more violent, but where aggresssion is on an upward trend in girls, the same is true in boys. Both sexes influence each other a lot, so if a certain crime drives in one sex, most likely it is to drive in the other. That driving force is driven out even more with poverty, especially in teens, teens cannot completely deal with the burden so they take out their anger and frustration on others.
For 30 years, psychologist Dr. Anne Campbell has been studying sex difference in aggression. In Dr. Campbell's studies, she has interviewed women inmates, hung out with girl gangs in New York City, saw some of the most troublesome pubs in inner city areas, run experiments, and measured testosterone attitudes and sex roles. In her recent book, "Mind of Her Own", Dr. Campbell suggests that women have a tendency to avoid aggressive or risky situations.
In our study, we asked a group of guys and a group of girls the same problem scenerio and collected the data (coming from their sollution).
Girls usually find more peaceful ways to confront and solve social problems compared to boys.
