Men May Not Understand Women After All!

men and women

Finally scientific proof and a perfectly logical explanation for that long standing belief that men do not understand women.

An article in the Pacific Standard says that the researchers conclude that “From an evolutionary point of view, accurate interpretations of other men’s, rather than women’s, thoughts and intentions—especially threatening cues—may have been a factor contributing to survival in ancient times. As men were more involved in hunting and territory fights, it would have been important to them to be able to predict and foresee the intentions and actions of their male rivals.”

It goes on to say that men’s strength in reading the faces of other men is important even today in business situtations and that explains why there is such good male bonding!

  1. I think women understand men ( pretty well ) but not the other way round – I mean it was man’s rib that was yanked out so a few brain cells went with it !

  2. Actually men don’t always understand men either. My group leader used to take me to management meetings to check his readings of what was going on between the participants.

      1. Actually he was unusually interested in communication, being a good leader, etc. We had a lot of good conversations — which means the Drive information was old stuff when I listened to it.

  3. If you don’t mind me saying so, I think that’s complete nonsense. Just another ridiculous theory that excuses men’s inability to communicate. Men would understand women perfectly well if they just bothered to listen properly, be a bit more sensitive and imaginative, and see things from a woman’s point of view.

      1. Well, it’s about time they did, instead of making out women are some kind of foreign species. Perhaps if they just listened for a change instead of pontificating?

  4. I am Ursula. And don’t claim to understand anything about anyone. All I do know which box to tick when a form asks me to do so. Being female pays when you apply for life insurance.

    Hugs and kisses to all of you understood, not understood, misunderstood, not even trying, trying but getting nowhere, mysteries to ourselves,
