@Nancy Drew 1  I never did either, and I'm older than you.

I consider myself to be a mental work-in-progress.

Re: I've always thought men are smarter.

It's been my observation that smart comes in all genders, IQ scores, education, occupations.....

@Porcelain -

One of my father's favorite books was "Emotional Intelligence."

I think if someone has that, they have a lot of what they need!

And as to the title of the post-

I think that's a stupid statement!😁

Smarter than what? Wastebaskets? Pigeons? Bacteria?

 

We don't live in a binary world, and the men I have the privilege of knowing are aware of that and would never post something that assumed the old reality. They're all too smart to post a query like this, and would be too smart to answer it. But I'm just a girl, so I did.

Re: I've always thought men are smarter.

Guess I could consider myself "smart' as I formerly belonged to MENSA (got tired of paying dues).

 

<shrug> Only thing I'm aware of is soooo many things I don't know!  LOL

 

Never thought of it as a gender thing.

Re: I've always thought men are smarter.

How do you define "smart", there is book smart, street smart, life smart ect.

Someday, when scientists discover the center of the Universe....some people will be disappointed it is not them.

Re: I've always thought men are smarter.

 

I actually always thought that women were smarter than men, in general.

 

However, these days I don't know.   A lot of female stupid going on out there.

 

But, despite that brand of stupid (mostly brainwashing), I still think that, in the overall, women are smarter than men.

I get called a smart alek all the time! I usually respond, "rather be a smart aleck than a dumb aleck!" And then duck. Woman Very Happy
