Girls are smarter than boys, but where are the girls in math and sciences? That’s the question asked in an infographic from EngineeringDegree.net which makes the argument that girls are smarter than boys but a gender-related lack of self confidence causes them to steer away from occupations that are traditionally dominated by men.
For example, although girls have higher IQs overall, they lose confidence and self esteem in drastic numbers in the sixth and tenth grades. Furthermore, test scores for girls are lower when they’re asked to identify their gender up-front. Check out the infographic below for all the details.
