For nearly 100 years IQ scores of men are always on the woman, so presumably the role of genetics. But for the first time, the study found IQ women has increased more than men.
For the first time in IQ test scores of women psychologists found the increase in the male. This is because since the first century, IQ scores of women are always 5 points behind the man who made some psychologists think there may be genetic influences.
“In the last 100 years IQ scores of men and women is increasing, but women have a more rapid improvement,” said James Flynn, as quoted from Dailymail.
This condition is a consequence of modernity and complexity of the modern world that makes a person adaptable and increasing the value of IQ. The gap that existed before it has narrowed in recent years until women can beat men.
One thing that might account for this condition is because women are required to do multitasking like raising children and also do the job. And women do have higher intelligence than men, and only now realizing this potential.
“Further data are still needed to support and explain this condition. But the effects of modernity on women are just emerging now,” said Flynn.
Flynn said that when the world becomes more complex and demanding to live in it more abstract thinking, then people will need to adapt. This may occur in women where the amount of work to be done to make it better adapted to increased IQ scores.
This conclusion was drawn after drawing up the results of IQ tests from several countries in Western Europe and the United States, Canada, New Zealand, Argentina and Estonia. In the western countries the gap score between men and women already narrowing.
