It could just be a coincidence that males average a higher IQ, because of the current roll of the dice inherent in the distribution of IQ. It doesn't mean males inherently possess a higher IQ. Marilyn vos savant has a super high iq. Maybe in 1000 years, Vos Savant's IQ will be the norm. It just so happened that such a high iq wound up being distributed into the brain of a female named Marilyn Vos Savant. It doesn't mean there's a relationship between women named Marilyn and genius level IQs. IQ is only variable to the laboratory. In the jungle, many other factors come into play that can level the playing field. People that have lower iqs can make up for the gap by using more force and ruthlessness to advocate for their way. High IQs do not insulate people from certain fears. It may even predispose them to paranoia. A ruthless person with a 120 IQ can actually go further than a person with a 160 IQ who doesn't believe in the use of force. That is why many world leaders average in the 120-140 range. FDR himself was probably among the lowest of the presidents, yet he is considered by many to be the greatest in terms of what he accomplished and set in place long after his death. Reagan is another one.
