You know the story, but here we go again. The standard account of sex differences in intelligence is that there aren’t any. Or not significant ones, or perhaps some slight ones, but they counter-balance each other. The standard account usually goes on to concede that males are more variable than females, that is to say,... Read More

Charles Murray, a sociologist by background and a datanaut by inclination, has carved out a prominent place in American intellectual debate by the simple expedient of writing clearly about difficult subjects. He is an Enlightenment Regular Guy, who does not want Americans to lose ground, or be split apart or be cast asunder by imperious... Read More

Sometimes they seem to go one way, sometimes the other, with the gaps closing or staying resolutely the same, but this is the March of Science, as different schools contend, and as new results are added to the old. We should be glad that researchers delve into these matters, particularly... Read More
Sex differences are in the news. A male Google employee reviewed some of the literature on the topic in the context of his workplace practices, and got sacked. A book questioning the role of testosterone in sex differences, and more generally the veracity of innate biological sex differences, got the Royal Society Science Book prize,... Read More
Brain size and intelligence
Here is a very interesting paper on sex differences in brain size and intelligence, notable for linking people’s brain scans with their detailed intelligence test results. It has been accepted for publication in Intelligence. Sex differences in brain size and general intelligence (g) Dimitri van der Linden, Curtis S. Dunkel, Guy Madison Abstract Utilizing MRI...

Judging by how drivers behave when they’re lost, female and male brains are different. Women drivers famously tend to stop and ask for directions — or at least consult their smartphones. Men are more likely to trust their instincts, thereby risking not only a 20-minute detour but a stern tongue-lashing from any unfortunate female on... Read More
