I was just looking at the Newsweek article "He's Not as Smart as He Thinks." Apparently a British researcher studied the differences in IQ between men and women and found that there isn't a difference. He found that what happens is that women tend to underestimate their intelligence and men tend to overestimate theirs. So essentially, men aren't as smart as they think they are. What I want to know is, did this guy spend money on this research? Because I could have told him that for free.

P.S. Sorry if there's a bitter note to this. I'm very frustrated with a "friend" of mine right now. Not only do men overestimate their intelligence, some of them are seriously lacking in communication skills!
