Abstract

The present study examined self-assessed intelligence (SAI) in Britain and mainland China. In total, 102 British and 1/1 Chinese undergraduates estimated their overall intelligence as well as 14 other multiple intelligences. Results showed that men had higher SAI on overall, linguistic, mathematical-logical, creative, and noriverballogical intelligences. In addition, Britons had higher SAI than Chinese on overall, linguistic, mathematical-logical, and nonverbal-logical intelligences. These results support a male hubris-female humility bias and a cultural modesty effect in selfassessments of multiple intelligence.
