So girls may not be cleverer after all

The male students who were more often absent had higher scores for cognitive ability and extroversion while females had higher scores for conscientiousness, discouraging them from missing classes and encouraging them to work harder, the paper says.

This fitted the familiar research portrait of the female student as more "conformist" and that males, even those who are highly intelligent, as more easily distracted.
How ironic that I should be reading this as I struggle to finish the final essay of my university career.

What's my problem then? I am female, highly intelligent, and extremely non-conformist, as well as easily distracted, and I was absent a lot with higher scores than many of classmates.

OMG I am a male trapped in female body. Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha.
