The focus of Richard Lynn's paper on the existence and the magnitude of sex differences in general intelligence or IQ deserves more consideration than it has .
Women are more likely to transmit intelligence genes to their children because they are carried on the X chromosome and women have two of.
The role of height in the sex difference in intelligence. female advantage in intelligence persist even after we control for health as a measure of genetic quality.
to females at various points in the distribution and esti- mated the proportion of variance in general intelligence potentially due to genes on the X chromosome.
Research on heritability of IQ implies, from the similarity of IQ in closely related persons, the proportion of variance of IQ among individuals in a population that is associated with genetic variation within that population. This provides an estimate of genetic versus environmental influence for Intelligence in the normal range is a polygenic trait, meaning that it is.
