Intelligence is a personal trait that endures and carries a bigger impact on life than what looks alone can do.
For women, intelligence level is what separates the girls from the women. When a woman has a high level of intelligence, she is more likely in control of her own career path, not simply working a job. An intelligent woman will sometimes hold a higher amount of professional certifications and formal education degrees than the average woman.
Truly intelligent women not only possess the brains to control their destiny. They also fully understand how to apply their intelligence and capitalize off of it. You see, it’s one thing to have all the goods when it comes to character. It’s another thing to actually do some good with the potential that you’re standing on.
However, according to a brand new study by researchers from the University of Buffalo, California Lutheran University, and the University of Texas at Austin, intelligent women have one drawback: They are less likely to have a man. This is how the process of the study went, as reported by EliteDaily.com:
“Researchers had 105 men read a hypothetical scenario. In this scenario, a woman either outperformed or underperformed them in a math or English class. The men were then asked to imagine this woman as a romantic partner. While in this hypothetical scenario, these guys were all about dating the smart girls.
But when they were given intelligence tests and then told they would actually meet a woman who supposedly did better or worse than them on the tests, the results were a little different. They were more likely to view the women they had been told got higher scores than them as less desirable.”
We’ve all noticed it. Intelligent women seem to have the hardest time finding a good man.
Steve Harvey once pondered the issue of why men seem to go for less intelligent women during an interview with Good Morning America:
Smh what is wrong with some of these men nowadays? Fortunately I’m married to a man of God who embraces me for my intelligence and never tries to put me down for it.
Ladies don’t lower your standards. There are men out there that can appreciate all that you bring to the table.
