Do you believe that big brains are smarter..According to what i have read some scientists say that it is true...they believe that men are smarter that women because they have a difference in brain size about 0.2 pounds...But some scientists say that it's not true...They believe that intelligence does not matter on brain size...hmmm...i got confused...i dont know whom to believe....what do you think?

according to scientific studies, we only use 10 percent in our brain. So we can't tell if the size really matters.

I am not a scientist but I doubt it is true. I don't think intelligence is related to size. It's what you do with your brain that makes you smart or stupid. A big brain can just mean a big head! Also I have head of people who had part of their brain removed in surgery and it does not make them any less smart than they were before.

No, I don't agree that big brains are smarter. Especially if men's brains are supposedly bigger than women's. It is known fact that men are built for their brawn while women have the brains. I'm not being sexist, that's just the way we were created. Of course, there are smart and dumb men and women. I think what makes a person smarter is common sense. I've seen some smart people with no common sense, making them seem dumb.
