Even during the times when the topic of equality is as prevalent as it is now, there is no denying that men and women are different. With both having their strength and weak spots, sometimes the communication between these two can become overwhelmingly difficult simply because there are many fundamental differences between the way women process emotions and how men process them. These differences are complicated communication and cause a lot of problems on the way. But luckily, we have enough information about both males and females to be able to understand these differences and to try and work with them to make relationships better overall.
We’ve combined five main differences between the two genders and knowing these will help you understand your partner better even at times of heightened situations.
Communication and body language
We’ve all heard this one before, but women are much better at communication than men, and there is a lot of scientific explanation as to why this happens. The simple truth is that the communication center inside a woman’s brain is larger compared to the man’s center. Females do a way better job of processing words and using their word to speak about what they’re feeling. Men are much worse at reading between the lines, looking at the body language and most importantly articulating their own feelings. So the next time you get into an argument with your significant other, consider that their way of looking at things and communicating is valid too.
Sharing vs Solving
Women share to communicate and men communicate to solve problems. You will often hear women feeling distressed because easier male partners don’t seem to understand that sometimes a person might just want to complain and doesn’t want to hear a logical solution from their significant other. The thing is that men like to solve problems on their own and often refuse to share them, even if it is detrimental to their well-being. Meanwhile, women share their problems with their partners, friends and family members simply to communicate and get some support. Knowing this can help you not only understand your partner better, but it will make it easier for you to communicate what you want from another, instead of assuming that they should know it by default.
One of the fields that best describes the difference between men and women is actually gambling. Women tend to play it much safer compared to men and are prone to making more logical decisions when men risk way more when gambling but also wager a lot more compared to women. If you look at the user base of any online real money casino, you will find that the gender split between men and women isn’t that big anymore and is almost even at this point. But there is a clear difference between their playing patterns and the games that they chose. Women tend to go for games that are less stressful and risky, while men typically choose traditional table games that require focus and some skill.
Conflict vs diplomacy
Women are peacemakers and always tend to look for solutions that will cause the least amount of chaos, meanwhile men are hardwired to be more aggressive and can even recognize this emotion much faster than women, which just highlight how important this particular emotion is in males because generally, they are much worse at reading body language. In the face of a challenge, women will look for peaceful solutions while men will likely try to fight if challenged.
Logic vs Emotion
Men rely on logic and often ignore the emotional toll, meanwhile women tend to rely a lot on their feelings. And of course, these are just starting points and many women are more logical and there are men who do process their feelings efficiently. But the core differences rarely go away and understanding them can make the communication between the two genders much easier.
