*Controversial figure, Jordan Peterson, is responsible for popularizing this finding with the public, citing this (Falk and Hermle, 2018) and other studies, but the research itself seems solid enough to take seriously. This issue is highly politicized. It is possible that this finding could be caused by reasons other than biological differences between males and females (as Falk and Hermle point out in their footnotes).
**Disputed (see Stoet and Geary, 2018), but data is remarkable regardless.
