I still wasn’t convinced, until, I saw something in the news.Apparently researchers out of the UK surveyed men and women’s knowledge of domestic and international news as well as current affairs in Australia, Canada, Colombia, Greece, Italy, Japan, Korea, Norway, the UK and the US. The information is certainly available very easily.A comparative study was done and it was found that women living in the world’s most advanced democracies and under the most progressive gender equality regimes still know less about politics and current affairs than men. There are so many ways to access media from all over the world in every language possible. The study cited the use of males in the media as main sources and gender inequality in specializations related to these topics.Women sources are preferred for what they call “soft news topics” such as family, lifestyle and culture.Or do they place equal or greater value on things like kindness, sense of humor, honesty, intimacy, etc.?
People who can argue points without offending other people – and without ‘digging in’ and ignoring other viewpoints – tend to be more intelligent.I know because I was told and identified as intellectually-gifted early on as a child. Like many of my friends were pulled out of the normal stream and into the gifted stream when I don’t know 4th grade or something like that because I was too passive during the ball test exams, the IQ test exams that run for multiple days where they assessed a certain small percentage of the group, of the class.I needed to pee during the test, so I said, “Teacher, I need to pee” And they had just started the test and instead of letting me go to the restroom, the teacher just said, “Okay, hold on once you’ve done this 25-minute, 30-minute section the you can go.” But I have to go. So I’m like, I tried to, I think there maybe 30 questions on the thing and after like question 5, I’m like, “I got to go.” So I just like pick the same or just guess.I'm perfectly aware that everyone has their individual preferences, but, overall, is equal/higher intelligence in a woman important to very intelligent men?Or do they place equal or greater value on things like kindness, sense of humor, honesty, intimacy, etc.?
