For centuries, it has been assumed that men and women are different when it comes to certain cognitive abilities, and even intelligence itself. For example, men have been stereotyped as better at spatial abilities (such as, the abilities used in video games) and women have been stereotyped as better at verbal abilities (such as, the abilities used in communicating.) However, recent research is blurry when it comes to definitively stating that one gender is better at a specific cognitive ability than the other. Some intelligence and cognitive ability assessments suggest gender differences; however, it is still to be determined if the findings really do show that there are differences in cognitive abilities and intelligence or if there are other factors at play, including testing flaws, interpretation bias, and cultural or environmental influencers.
Take video game playing as an example. The poster child for video games has traditionally been the 17-year-old boy. Since more boys than girls have usually played video games, society has assumed that boys are better at the associated visual abilities. However, there may be other factors at play. For example, video games in the past typically featured male-related topics, such as blowing up things, fighting wars, and dominating women. The characters in these games were predominately male and the stories were based around males rescuing damsels in distress (except for the occasional female superhero.) More recent game developers have changed their tactics. Game topics have changed. Female characters and the ability to customize characters have increased. Online access has improved the social aspect of games. The result is that females now make up close to half of video game players.

Cognitive abilities stereotyping, as I would like to think, are exceptionally normal, due to sexual orientation as well as in light of the fact that to think about who is more smarter “men or female”. I decided to discuss an associate’s memory since he can not remember anything. We cooperate and do a similar sort of occupation however when we go to any preparation, he won’t remember anything. For him to become familiar with his calendar, it can take in any event 3 weeks and I remember min in the middle of the 1 week. As indicated by NCBI, “females have diverse mental aptitudes at various periods of the menstrual cycle. Along these lines, we analyzed pre-and postovulatory cognitive tasks of females with male cognitive tasks by utilizing cognitivefun.net program”.

STUDENT B Curtis

Females outperform males in word fluency and speech intelligibility based on their cognitive structure and performance. Culture has facilitated this characteristic in academic and other social contexts such as media, where female personalities mostly occupy sections requiring comprehension and fluency. This gender characteristic has enhanced women’s engagement in various social and business avenues, by empowering their market value. In education, females display outstanding scores in various subjects and courses which require the two qualities. Disciplines based on this phenomenon are music and phonetics, among other linguistic fields. Individually, women feel positive and empowered to handle such tasks and provide them with an opportunity to display their value in society. Corporate environments have also been affected by this gender difference leading to a higher quality of writing, teaching and journalism in women (American Psychological Association, n.d). The difference also affects academic setups and teaching techniques to allow both groups to effectively understand concepts and deliver the required results. According to Hyde (2016), natural cognitive composition in the aspect of neural correlates has been attributed to this characteristic; nurture also plays an important role in developing fluency and speech intelligibility through the positive mind and external motivation. I think that gender difference in word fluency and speech intelligibility is tied to genetic and cognitive attributes which are naturally promoted up to adolescence, then nurture determines outputs later in life.
