Determinants of Intelligence:

Determinants of Intelligence 50% genetic 50% environmental

Mental Abilities and Human Diversity:

Mental Abilities and Human Diversity Gender Overall, men and women do not differ significantly in general intelligence Women may show slight advantage in mathematical computation skills Men show an advantage in spatial ability Men are more likely to fall in the extremes of intelligence range
