Some gender differences in both intelligence and memory have been found. For example, women tend to outperform men on measures of verbal fluency, men tend to outperform women on measures of mathematical ability, men tend to outperform women on measures of spatial ability, and women tend to outperform men on measures of episodic memory. However, 1) in all cases the amount of difference between the genders is typically rather small, 2) in most cases the disparity between women and men tends to be shrinking, and 3) in many cases the pattern is inconsistent (e.g., of all the forms that memory can take, a reliable difference has been found for episodic memory but not semantic, declarative, procedural, and so on).
