Good insights. Research <a href="">stueids</a> show thata0leadershipa0success is founded upon EQ. It's interesting how the correlation also plays out in successful marriages. You want to be happy in your marriage, take some EQ marriage classes.

Who cares ,oh and I'm a guy.

The intelligent response would be to remain objective and cite a source. Resorting to "they feel threatened" is just emotions talking and pretty much equates to nothing in a debate.
My friend just texted me this little fact so I had to look it up because I had heard otherwise. I don't see anything that shows the two highest recorded IQs belonging to women but the internet is so unreliable that it doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility. What I do see is several males jumping on the chance to disprove it. Why so threatened? Would it be such a bad thing if it were true?
It's "highest IQs" not "highest IQ's" Idiot.
Nadok, Marilyn vos Savant's test wasn't just set up for higher scores, it was the child's test calculated with a ratio that's assumed to be equal to the adult score. Sorry ladies, but that's a real stretch to say that is the highest score. If she were tested again as an adult and scored the highest among adult scores then I would concede, but she wasn't so that can only be claimed as the highest IQ among children, a far cry from the headline. High IQ? Yes. The Highest? No. And I have no idea were your source for the second highest IQ recorded came from, but I would be curious to see you post that, especially from a source other than wikipedia considering that you could edit wikipedia yourself to prove your point. I'm all for equal rights, but making groundless statements is just distasteful. Perhaps you could chalk it up to the idea that less women have been tested or something, but as far I have found this blog nothing but feminist propaganda. And for those with a low IQ, the name Kim is a very common male name some Asian countries.
Men r just threatened by any thought or fact that indicates women can be intelligent! U supress any encroachement on "your territory" so to speak..
Marilyn vos Savant has an IQ of 186. That puts her on place 5 on the list of the most intelligent people alive, and she is the only woman in the top 5. The two people with the highest IQs are Kim Ung-yong (210) and Christopher Michael Langan (195). Both of them were born with a penis. Please change this "fact" accordingly.
@Vascular: This site has numerous incorrect "facts," and there are no sources ever cited. You have no proof Nadok is a man, and instead of addressing Nadok's argument, you simply issue a blanket statement about men as a whole. You also seem to think IQ and intelligence are the same thing, which is not true. IQ is about as important to intelligecne as height is to basketball. Obviously it offers a huge advantage, but thinking it is the only requirement is laughable. Further, you seem to misinterpret the "fact" the same as the allegedly immature men you condemn. Let's assume that it is, in fact, tue that the two highed IQs ever recorded were both women. This does not state that women are smarter than men. This states that two specific women had the highest IQs recorded. there could have been others with higher IQs that were not recorded (with a 50% chance on gender). The next woman on the list of highest IQs could be hundreds of names down. It doesn't matter in any way. Your gender is not inherently "smarter" than mine, nor vice versa. It doesn't have any statistical statement that I am smarter than you, due to the fact that you have breasts. In short, shut the hell up, you self-righteous jerk.
Does it really matter? The reigning theory is that the super-intelligence gene is recessive on the X chromosome, (just like male pattern baldness) so men are more likely to get it, however the genes for super-low-intelligence are believed to be there as well.
A man, when faced with the threat of a woman being more intelligent, reverts to swearing and claiming they cheated. Maturity knows no bounds.
Actually, this is incorrect. The highest score is BELIEVED to be Marilyn vos Savant, but in fact, she did not take a standard IQ test; the one she took was setup for higher scores, adjusting the averages to the standard would award her a 186, rather than the 228 people believe that she had. IQ societies such as Mensa have publicly announced this "cheat" so to speak, and her 228 is no longer accepted within intelligence circles. The highest IQ on record is a south korean (male) professor Kim Oong Song, at 210. There are also reports of a man named "Iqbal Saleh Abba" scoring in the 230 range, but posters allege that the high IQ category was taken off Guinness upon his submission..I can find no other information about this person, and it very well might be an urban legend.
toast..let me are a guy..with some measure problems in some area of your body? ;)
dumb bitches. if only IQ was a legitimate measure of intelligence.
