It occurs to me that my opinion of this thread is exactly the same as my opinion of the Kiersey sorter thread--gross generalizations being made on very little data, with no real practical end result.

I just came back from a visit to New York with Harry Hawk and Perry Metzger, and thinking over our conversation, it wouldn't have been much different if I had a male gender. I am just as rational, just as IQ'd, just as capable of comprehending math, science, and philosophy as they are, and they were smart enough to realize that. My advice--stop wasting your time feeding into the social myth of gender intelligence differences and start interacting with more intellectual women. In the long run, you will gain more benefits. You might even learn something.


Take care,
