Why is it that when I type the phrase "men dumber than women" into Google (thanks, Think Tank Boss, for a research task way more fun than "insurance credit scoring"), the results that turn up turn the phrase around to "women dumber than men"?
That, in and of itself, is worthy of some research.
Or, maybe not.
Human technology merely parrots back the predictable a$$-backwards stereotypes that warp human psychology.
*Updated: And yet, as it turns out, while women and men score equally on IQ tests, men get more DUIs, commit more crimes of both the violent (e.g. 88% of all homicides) and nonviolent (61% of all fraud) varieties, and end up going to jail way more often than women.
Go figure. Of course they need to TELL themselves they're smarter. Facts tell us otherwise.
