The Sex Differentiated Interaction of Environmental and Hereditary Determinants of Intelligence.
Seaver, Judith W.
This paper examines evidence supporting the hypothesis that environment differentially affects intelligence in a sex-specific manner. The current position that environment and heredity contribute interactively to intelligence obscures the greater vulnerability and exposure of males to environmental influences and the reciprocal lack of equivalent environmental stimulation which leads by default to a larger genetic component of intelligence for females. Several hypotheses related to the sex-differentiated interaction of environmental and hereditary determinants of intelligence are discussed. (Author/MS)
