Men have won the annual Mastermind BBC TV competition on 75 per cent of occasions since it’s been held since 1972. Because it’s the BBC we can be sure that women have been over-represented in the televised heats and advantaged with easier questions than those put to the men, otherwise we’d expect the proportion of winners who are men to comfortably exceed 90 per cent of winners, maybe 95 per cent.
I refer readers of this blog piece to my ICMI20 presentation Why Women Fail to Compete Successfully With Men, and Will Always Fail. Men’s advantage over women persists whether merit can be objectively assessed, or not. Given a level playing field men reliably out-compete women, ever more so towards top levels of performance, whether the field is physical or mental.
