I found this study to be amusing and consoling at the same time. It reminds me of a study some years ago that appeared on the front page of the Globe and Mail showing, much to the utter surprise of the researchers, that girls and boys are different. Well, here we have it again, folks. Men and women’s brains are wired differently.
The study, published in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences, found striking differences in the neural wiring of men and women giving credence to commonly-held beliefs about their different skills and behaviour…Ragini Verma, a researcher at the University of Pennsylvania, said the greatest surprise was how much the findings supported old stereotypes, with men’s brains apparently wired more for perception and co-ordinated actions, and women’s for social skills and memory, making them better equipped for multitasking. The study also found that women are much more intuitive, better at listening, and more emotionally involved when people talk to them.
