Interesting contribution to the swath of research on gender differences in learning and academic performance. 

Reflecting back on school, I always noticed girls in my classroom who were super gung ho hard working, but weren’t doing too well on exams. Then there were the boys who put in little effort into class assignments, but scored brilliantly during exams. Definitely fits into the whole conscientiousness & organizational skills vs. test taking psyche argument in the article, right?

Moments (Sayyid Qutb Quote)هناك لحظات في الحياة لا يصمد لها بشر إلا أن يكون مرتكناً إلى الله مَطمئناً إلى حماه.. مهما أوتي من القوة والصلابة والثبات! ففي الحياة لحظات تعصف بهذا كله، فلا يصمد لها إلا المطمئنون بذكر الل! و {أَلَا بِذِكْرِ اللَّهِ تَطْمَئِنُّ الْقُلُوبُ} - سيد قطبThere are moments in life that no human being can undergo, unless they are fully reliant on Allah and certain of His protection, regardless of how much strength, endurance and perseverance has already been given them. For in life there are moments that take all of these things by storm, and only those stay standing who were given surety through the remembrance of Allah, for “only with the remembrance of Allah do hearts find surety.” ~Sayyid QutbOriginally found on: muslema

Such a timely reminder to be mindful of God.
