Some Gender Stereotypes are True
- Women spend lots of time with colors, calling them mauve, pure ivory and ecru. Men see pink, white and yellow. Are women just color obsessed?
Science tells us that the brain locus for language is 17% larger in women than in men. The corpus callosum may also be larger in women (there is some debate about this) and this connects the right and the left hemisphere, allowing for more language processing.
Science tells us women metabolize alcohol differently than men and it isn't just because of size. It is because women have less water to fat content in their bodies and when men slam down drinks, they are diluting the alcohol with some of their body water. Women also produce less alcohol dehydrogenase, the substance that breaks down alcohol in the body. They feel drunk more quickly and stay intoxicated longer.
4. Women are more emotional than men.
Science tells us that women have a larger brain deep limbic system than men and this allows them to be in touch with their feelings and to express emotion. Women connect better and it also opens women up to depression during times of hormonal shifts.
There are other ways men and women are different that are not based on science. For a lighter look at the differences...go here
