INTELLIGENCE TESTING AND NEURAL ECONOMY
My understanding of the Analytic (external) to Empathic (internal) Spectrum of Grammars used in intelligence testing.

Like anything else, these tend to be gender biased if for no other reason than we train our brains by the route with the most available information to train our brains.
Not complicated. Networks do what they do. Inputs determine categories, values, and relations.
Neural plasticity exists, however, neural economies also exist. And like all things, we pay for one thing in lieu of paying for another.
Now, I don’t believe in multiple intelligences simply because intelligence scales in concert across all abilities. But with that scaling we still encounter the difference between the vertical (analytic) male brain structure of specialization and horizontal (synthetic) female brain structure of generalization.
Distributions in everything.
