The researcher Satoshi Kanazawa of the London School of Economics has determined that women who have a higher level of intelligence, not very much interested to become mothers.
Thus with every 15 points that add of a average IQ, which is around 100, the interest of women to the status of mother drops by a quarter. In this research, Kanazawa considered, among others, economic factors and the educational, reports the Daily Mail. According to the National Bureau of Statistics in the UK, the percentage of women without children has doubled from 1990 to present. Thus, one in five women aged 45 has no children, and the percentage among those with higher education reached 43%. These results confirm another study, led by sociologist Nattavudh Powdthavee of the University of York, UK, that the idea of happiness you feel at the thought that you become a parent is illusory.
“Parents get to consume most of the time and resources dealing with school problems of children, the household chores, all kinds of activities that are perceived generally as negative experiences. These feelings influence the level of satisfaction that we achieve in everyday life, “said Powdthavee for” The Times “. British historian Lucy Worsley, who falls into the category of genius with an IQ of 140, has sparked uproar last year after declaring that does not want children and had not been educated in the traditional use of reproductive functions in order to procreate. BBC presenter Kate Humble said that from the age of 14 also realized she does not want children. “People have a tendency to be highly critical of women who do not want to become mothers, but I did not take this decision out of selfish motive. Simply I never wanted to have children, “she said. Also, Oprah Winfrey, and actresses Cameron Diaz and Eva Mendes are among the female celebrities who have publicly stated that they are not going to become mothers. For example, Cameron Diaz even said that enjoying life precisely because it has no children.
