A nationally representative sample of men and women from across the four provinces was asked, “With respect to the characteristics found in men and women, please tell are the following characteristics found mostly in men or women [Are men more intelligent or women]?” In response to this question, 57% said than men are more intelligent than women, while 43% said women are more intelligent than men.
In response to this question, 67% males said that men are more intelligent, while 33% said women. On the other hand, 46% females said that men are more intelligent, while 54% said that women are more intelligent.
