Intelligence? Pet or Show?

So can any one tell me are show stock mice smarter than pet?
I already know that they tend to be calmer, less scatty, but does the larger head contain a slightly larger brain = more smarts or are the bones denser and so same size brain and intelligence?
Any comments welcome

The bigger varieties are dopey,nothing sharp about them.The smaller varieties whether pet bred or show bred are more quick witted and bright.Not really sure they are intelligent.I think thats more the domain of rats.
