Sex Differences in Symbol-Digit Substitution Task Performance
Royer, Fred L.
Intelligence, 2, 2, 145-51, Apr-Jun 78
Three forms of a symbol-digit substitution task were administered to 62 female and 96 male college students. Results support the theory that the superior performance of women over men on the Digit-Symbol Substituion subtest of the Wechsler scales is due to their greater ability to encode symbols verbally.
