Maybe you really did get it from your mama!

According to new research from Psychology Spot, when it comes to your intelligence genes, they come from your mom!

Go mama! Go mama! Go mama!


Your intelligence genes are located on chromosome X and since women carry that, it means kids are twice as likely to get their intelligence from their mom, reported in a Cosmo article.

Yes, your dad may give you some intelligence genes to you, but the study says they won’t have an impact on your brain since they will only work if they come from your mom.

It’s just like Queen Bey says, ‘Girls Run the World.’
