Naughty boy, females do the choosing - fact

There is a divide between the two hemispheres and in women this is typically thicker and has infinitely more connections between left and right than the typical male brain. So there is far more going on in a typical woman's head than a man's and in particular emotional thought because they have more access to those parts of the brain.
Because of this most men find it easier to focus on one thing completely whereas in most women the other thoughts get in the way. This enables women to multitask and be excellent communicators but also means they scatter their mental energy somewhat.
This ability to focus and compartmentalise means men can get obsessed about really boring things like sport and find it easier to plan a map route without attaching emotional thoughts to every landmark.
It must be far easier to be a man and be more task focused without all the emotional interference. The down side is that men are far more likely to come up with simple solutions that don't consider every angle (which women will point out to them at length). Then they have a new problem to fix when it goes belly up and women will say "I told you so..."
A sensible post. Yes indeed Annie, I was actually wondering about this gender fluidity, and whether or not it also alters normal thinking patterns in either sex? I then remembered about a twin that lost his penis during a circumcision, he was brought up as a female, but never felt female. So I guess maybe, even those people that have actual sex changes, cannot alter gender thinking??????

Yep most definitely.
Females THINK they can drive
Males think women shouldn't drive

Love it you devil.

Vive La Difference!!
Yes, we all embrace it, but, will new generations???

When OH was alive, I did defer to him a lot. He was better at most things, even cooking.
Tiff I am sure you have some very special qualities. x
