It is human nature to speculate what your future child will be like.
Will s/he be intelligent? Funny? Athletic? Will their prominent genes come from mom or dad?
You never know exactly how your kids will turn out. With any luck, they’ll be charming, though, expectant parents’ biggest fear is that they’ll be the bully who steals everyone’s food from the office refrigerator.
Character is shaped by a mysterious combination of nature and nurture.
However, scientists recently discovered intriguing links between intelligence and genetics.
Results of a recent study revealed that intelligence is passed down from the mother, not the father. Now, a study published in Molecular Psychiatry has revealed that bigheaded babies are more likely to be intelligent.
But, if your baby doesn’t measure in the top 1% when it comes to their dome, don’t stress.
Researchers discovered another significant link to brainpower.
Researcher Saskia Hagenaars told The Independent, “The study supports an existing theory which says that those with better overall health are likely to have higher levels of intelligence.”
Of course, there are more factors that play into intelligence than just cranium size. Though, if you have a baby with a big head, or you have a big head yourself, wear it as a badge of honor. You might just throttle your smaller head counterparts in an IQ test.
