From a recent study:
Four British universities measured the IQ of 900 11-year-olds and revisited them 40 years later to see how their lives had moved on.
They found that the brighter girls were less likely to find a man who wants to marry them, with their chances diminishing dramatically in direct proportion to their level of intelligence.
For each 16-point rise in their IQ, their marriage prospects fell by 40 per cent.
In contrast, boys’ chances increased by 35 per cent with each 16-point rise.
Interesting. Guys don’t want smart chicks. But this also gives the lie to the stereotype about the brainy, geeky, nerdy guy who is still a 40 year old virgin.
