Abstract

The data of a previous study by the author are examined for sex differences in the solution of geometric originals. The subjects are 53 boys and 36 girls. Although the boys are somewhat higher in general mental ability and in reasoning ability, the girls reach a higher achievement. "Especially were the girls the more superior in responding to those 'link' steps, by means of which they were able to bridge the gap between the given relations (those observed with the pertinent recalled facts) and the required relations which had controlled the direction of the processes of thinking during the actual solving of the exercises in geometry." These results are compared with those of Stockard and Bell, Touton, and Webb. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA )
