Size Matters : Scientists Prove People With Big Heads Are Smarter

The science on big heads is out, and size matters. Big heads lead to big developed brains in the cranial cavity that equate to more often than not, Secrets of the Pyramid Brain Imagea higher intelligence. This does not mean that all people who have a large head are very smart or that the smaller your head and smaller you brain, the less intelligent you are.

Please keep in mind that there are exceptions to this rule as there are with almost all rules of life. But the scientific facts are that brain size is a factor in how smart an animal or mammal is, and if people with big heads are able to tap more of that brain matter than that of their smaller headed cousins, then they can become more intelligent.

Specific Genes Linked to Big Brains and Intelligence

“Brain size and smarts are, to some extent, genetic — and now, a team of more than 200 researchers has uncovered specific genes that are linked to both brain volume and IQ.

Though scientists have suggested bigger brains are “smarter,” this study is the strongest case yet for a genetic connection to brain size and to IQ. Of course, brain size is not 100 percent correlated with a person’s intelligence, and other factors, including connections between brain cells and even a person’s experiences play a role.

“We found fairly unequivocal proof supporting a genetic link to brain function and intelligence. For the first time, we have watertight evidence of how these genes affect the brain,” said lead researcher Paul Thompson, a neurologist at the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Medicine.

I always have wondered if my gigantic head could be a genetic physical trait passed to me from my ancestors, and now I think my intuition has led me to the light.When I say my head is gigantic, I really mean it, in which it has caused me some problems while I was growing up. From being a top head heavy kid- who has actually cracked open his skull numerous times, to never having helmets fit my head correctly, and to currently having to buy my hats from

What I had thought was some sort of birth defect is actually a genetic trait passed down to me by my ancestors.  For example: A relative of mine Charles Joseph Bonaparte, the grandnephew of Napoleon  who first organized the “detective force of special agents” of the Department of Justice- now known as G-men, who was also Secretary of the Navy and later, Attorney General in the cabinet of Theodore Roosevelt. Charles Bonaparte was described as “A vast round, rugged head; a double-decker head; a cannon ball head, like a warrior’s, with room for two sets of brains, bald and shiny.” His hair and eyes were jet black, his hands and feet small. He had the clear ruddy complexion of an outdoorsman. He constantly wore black, carried an umbrella – not a cane – and looked like a “studious professor.” He did much of his thinking on the street, striding briskly along, his massive head-“with curious rises over the temples”-swaying from side to side.

    The brain is entirely a case of ‘use it or lose it’ like any muscle, so regardless of the potential vast intelligence a much larger brain can afford someone… if they failed to use it properly while developing (from 0-6 years old) or let it atrophy during puberty (when it completely restructures itself and the decisions of what sections to ‘trim the fat’ from PERMANENTLY are made) you are going to end up much dumber than the average (higher potential means more waste if wasted so u end up with inverse intelligence or a higher exponential of degradation if you fucked up in life experiences, needs, and training (exercise)).

    There isn’t much option other than to get your body ripped as fuck (yes working out hardcore makes you substantially smarter IF you do certain things to make use of the new brain meat that strenuous exercise generates right after and during. No exceptions to use it or lose it immediately here) in reversing this, but that also entails entirely remaking your brain (so who you are as a person, your core personality traits, and many other things will permanently change (Permancy in the sense you can always change to something new, but never return to who you might once have been, you are also choosing a different route than ‘potential’ so you will be making it up as you go along (aka expect a lot more failure than if you were working towards your potential)).

    Hello, i think there is a link between baldness and skull size. Are you bald? Can you say something about this topic?

    This is nonsense, do people with big feet walk better than people with small feet, do people with big hands build things better than people with small hands, do people with big noses, have a greater sense of smell than people with small noses, do people with big bodies, live longer than smaller people, do people with big ears, hear better?

      Bigger feet better balance, big hands just means a better grip, big nose means air is cooled faster, Pygmies life expectancy is between 16 and 24 yeas so yes on that one too. And yes big ears does mean you can hear better. Just for fun cup you hand behind your ear to make the ear bigger. Say something and listen to your bullshit a little louder.

      chimps are not monkeys btw…and yes people with bigger heads tend to be smarter …I met in my life many academically smart people which had no other useful skills for the real word, nerds might have high IQs but are in many non academic areas downright stupid…can’t land a chick if their life depended on it and get bullied out of their lunch money without knowing how to use their high IQ to liberate themselves from that daily reminder that As in Algebra don’t mean you smart…large member on the other hand is a topic worth discussing 🙂

    Head and iq have a correlation of 0,15 which means they are not correlated on a scientific point of view, so learn to read about science and sorry, your big head means nothing.

    I, too, have a large skull. A family trait, though not attractive, it is what it is. Large forehead that seems to follow my children and grand children. It sucks. IQ…145.

    Ridiculous…are you saying pigmies and midgets are less intelligent than a 6 foot person? Jewish peoples Ydna halpogroup j2 have sloped foreheads whereas R ‘s have flat foreheads , and yet the most radical scientists have been Jewish without doubt! Women have smaller heads and brains than men does that mean they are less smart too? How much ? 10% 20% ? By your reasoning basketball players have enormous brains and we make them run around wih a ball for our amusement, while we vote ex actors and male cheeleaders to be presidents … Highlarious…we are all doomed!!!!

      Louis M. Are you saying basketball players aren’t intelligent because they play for Jewish owners and entertain sports fans? That may have been the dumbest statement I read in a while and its called a haplogroup.

      Einstein was E-35.1 (E3b) and he was of the same clan as Hitler who was also of the same Haplogroup. So, we would need to be specific in our examples. Country boarders and religious groups, blur and change quickly throughout time. Genetics determines the specific line and group, if you use the example I give, both were Germans, seem opposites in faith but they both originate in the Near East and Mediterranean. Jews largest Haplogroup is J2 and its second largest is E3. Not to mention the yet “proven” lost tribes, who could be in these and other groups out of the Levant.

        I’m of the same DNA Haplogroup. It runs in our family and is the result of using our brain intensively over thousands of years. Hence, like a muscle builder will have large muscles from working them out, we would have large heads developed over time for the same reason. The Lost Tribes are E3B1 and the original Israelites. J1 is the conquering Turks. German is a new country in respects to ancient Israel and the true lost tribes. They would have migrated there and Hitler and Einstein would be proof of this fact.

      Please be aware when discussing “big heads”in mammals they are in fact referring to proportionality. Hence what I would take from this is that some little people are actually smarter than most because of their disproportionally bigger head.

    I don’t think scientists have been able to prove or disprove this yet, though it’s been speculated for years.

    It doesnt matter what your head or brain size is! but if any, it would be the other way around!. people with big heads, have a lot of tissue and swelling that puts unnecessary pressure that people with small heads dont have. you just made this crap up bc your head is full of air! chimpanzees are the most intelligent monkeys and guess what.. they have smaller heads! another point is that Einstein had a small brain! you are by far an air head! get out of here with these made up articles to make people with small heads feel bad about themselves when you know, if anything, its people with the big jug heads that have air for brains. ANYBODY knows your brain size or head size has NOTHING to do with intelligence!

      Actually, he’s right! Of course, it’s not just about the size, but matters too. The other “plus” is, that if you really different, you just do not slip into the average; btw, that is nothing to be proud of. 🙂 And yes, my head is big too; I try to compensate it with a little bodybuilding for almost 30 years (it does not help to much). Anyway, I would not change my head with nobody I know, not even with Brad Pit, or the big microsoft guy, or mr. B.Obama…Well, good luck to you, my unknown brother!:-) I have (bad) dream: one day we’re gonna be an average…
