Brain Rules (XI) — Male Brains and Female Brains are Different

Men and women are equal; however, we’re not the same. (Unknown)

Sounds reasonable.  Seems to ring true for male and female brains, too.  Here are a few differences:

  • Women tend to use the brain’s left and right hemisphere to process verbal info.  Men primarily use one.
  • Women tend to have thick cables connecting their two hemispheres.  Men’s are thinner.
  • Men bond through physical activities.  Women bond by talking and sharing secrets.
  • Men and women respond differently to acute stress:  women remember the emotional details.  Men get the gist.  (see Play By Rules, Rule #11 [3:00])

How beautiful!  Men and women — big picture and details — we can complement each other’s strengths and conquer the world … if you fit the stereotype. 

What if you’re a woman who prefers to see the big picture or a man who likes to be detail-oriented? 

Do you agree with the research findings?  Do you disagree?  🙂
