Science shows woman have more empathy and intuition than men

6 Feb

While female intuition is renowned, scientists are proving a factual basis to it. Woman are much faster than men at reading people’s facial expressions, and can quickly work out if someone is approachable or intelligent. Men take twice as long as women to read people’s faces.

That’s according to a study carried out by Edinburgh University published in the journal PLOS One. Its scientific experiments of brain function when making social decisions found that “differences in the functioning of the social brain between males and females [could] contribute to the greater vulnerability of males to Autism Spectrum Disorders”.

The fact the male brain takes longer to make these judgements and so need more time to come up with the answers – which can be problematic when needing to make snap decisions in real life.
