Plenty of overlap certainly within gene pools and lifestyle habits. Still, all my experiences have been that men are driven by more logical impulses, and women are still driven but sometimes muddier in their logic.
This is such pseudo-science... Although, it's still interesting to talk about.
right, but we don't have nearly the same infant mortality rates they did. in our society, most babies survive past infancy. in HG groups, generally one died for every one that was alive. menarche occurred at a later age, and fertility was highly dependent on food availability, which might change sharply from year to year. so what you have is a nomadic people, with women giving birth to maybe 6-10 babies in their lifespan and keeping 1/2-2/3 of that number. when groups became too big, they split and went their separate ways to other food sources.Because when you reach an equilibrium of food availability and population, you try to keep it in the wild. If you don't, bad stuff happens. If this happens in our society, we just plow a little more land, overfish a little more, and make our slaves work a little longer.
true. that's an interesting hypothesis to explore.Plus, I mentioned the Mt. Toba explosion about 70,000 years ago. This could have altered our evolutionary path and selected for those which re-populated areas the fastest.
is it possible that they typical "women's logic" is just something that you, as a man, don't understand? it's not that it's muddier, but different?Plenty of overlap certainly within gene pools and lifestyle habits. Still, all my experiences have been that men are driven by more logical impulses, and women are still driven but sometimes muddier in their logic.
thank you for pointing that out.This is such pseudo-science...

lol. from my husband, i don't think it's disrespect, but something else entirely out of the scope of this conversation. i generally don't talk BS with my husband, if i speak it means that i'm serious. if i start to get a tone in my voice, it means i'm pretty pissed, and if i stop asking him to do it, it means that i've already done it myself and he's going to have to deal with whatever consequences arise (i haven't made dinner because i was busy doing what i had asked him to do, or the trash isn't being collected this week, or whatever) and i don't really want to be around him for the rest of the night. we've lived together for 10 years, if he doesn't get that simple bit then he's a dunce.This I am calling bs on. Men hear women's voices like music? WTF? Womenfolk are chattering like birds? Please. If you respect someone you listen. If you don't you don't. Many women I ignore as they do not have shit to say. I do the same to men. It is about the person and the subject not the pitch/timbre of their voice. I am going to presume your husband listens when you sound like a b' because he can tell by your tone you are serious so he focuses. The fact he does not listen other times shows to me that he does not take you seriously and that shows a lack of respect.
