An interesting research: we inherit our intelligence from our mothers not fathers 11/8/2016 •

As it turned out, some scientists believe we now owe our intelligence (or lack of it) only to our mothers. Let's find out more about this recent research together.


Of course, a lot of things affect the development of our intelligence. Environmental factors, social interaction, culture, financial circumstances... Hereditary factors matter too. Have you ever heard this phrase,"Our child inherited your beauty and my brains"? A team of researchers suggest high IQ's are probably coming from our mothers only.


What do you think of such a theory? Do you believe hereditary factors really matter? Share your opinion with us in the comments!

My mother was incredibly intelligent. She taught me to be curious about everything. I followed her everywhere as a child. In every activity there was a science or history lesson to be taught or learned. My mother gave me a love of life long learning. Everything good about me began in some way with her. She was my mentor and best friend. I was very lucky.

My mother was very good at arithmatic, and could manage all the domestic stuff that I'm no good at. But I don't recall her being particularly intelligent. But in my children's case, yes they definitely got their smarts from me. Their father knows a lot of book facts, but wouldn't know what to do with them.

If this true I should be really stupid...my mother had more good looks than brains. I have a masters degree in anesthesia......clearly this study is flawed!
