New research suggests kids get their intelligence from their moms!
New research featured in Psychology Spot says people are born with conditioned genes that work differently depending on if they’re from your mother or father, but when it comes to your intelligence, those genes come from Mom!
the theory always used to be that your intelligence came from a combination of both your father and mother, but that’s not the case. The reason: Intelligence genes are located on chromosome X and since women carry two, that means children are twice as likely to get their intelligence from mom.
According to the report, the best predictor of intelligence is the IQ of their mother.
