Science Says Kids With Big Heads Are More Likely To Succeed

Having a big noggin comes with a host of unique problems. Good luck finding a hat that fits, and be prepared to have every person who stands behind you at a concert be annoyed.

Then you have to deal with stretching the necks out of every shirt you own and the never-ending parade of cheap sunglasses because the arms keep getting stretched out.

Now it looks like there’s finally a reason to hold that enormous head high. British scientists surveyed 100,000 people and found something very positive for big headed people. There’s a correlation between the circumference of the head, the volume of the brain, and intelligence. Basically, the bigger the head, the smarter you could be. Scientists found that the correlation was so strong, they could predict if the child would be smart enough to attend college.

Professor Ian Deary of Edinburgh University said: “In addition to there being shared genetic influences between cognitive skills and some physical and mental health states, the study also found that cognitive skills share genetic influences with brain size, body shape, and educational attainments.”
