Different Gender, different Performance?

DSC_0095 copy

  I happened to read ‘Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps’, a general, simplified discussion on how and why male and females are so different. Here’s part of its table of contents,

  And this book does provide several interesting ideas, different to or even opposed to what had been taken as granted. For example, it suggests that, generally, the spacial abilities of women are limited. That’s why women don’t like parallel parking. On the other hand, it says that normally, when it comes to language, men are born inferior because of smaller region of verbal in their brain. What’s more, let’s see what else it says:

There are more gray matters in female brain. Women are able to do more tasks in a time while men cannot, because there are more strongly-connect between the hemispheres of brain of women. Nevertheless, immediately after I typed ‘gender’ in the search box of Wikipedia, I found a quite different result:

  "It is well established that men have a larger cerebrum than women by about 8–10% (Filipek et al., 1994; Nopoulos et al., 2000; Passe et al., 1997a,b; Rabinowicz et al., 1999; Witelson et al., 1995). However, what is functionally relevant are differences in composition and "wiring", some of these differences are very pronounced. Richard J. Haier and colleagues at the universities of New Mexico and California (Irvine) found, using brain mapping, that men have more than six times the amount of grey matter related to general intelligence than women, and women have nearly ten times the amount of white matter related to intelligence than men. “

  Well, anyway, what I would like to say is that, we shall not take this too serious, neither that book nor the result of Wikipedia shown above, what do you say.
