    How Different are Girls and Boys' Brains?

    http://momshomeroom.msn.com/parentin...2?wt.mc_id=msn

    It's a pretty long article, so reader beware.

    The only problem or question I have after reading it is, so does the hormones testosteron and estrogen matter in behavior any?

    I think if anything it really has to do with the environments we are brought up in. Different things are expected from boys and girls.

    and yeah testosterone and estrogen both have a factor too.
    Trophy-licious!

    There are differences and hormones do play a part I believe. Women do tend to be more emotional from what I can see.

    That's not what the article says.

    You guys should read it, it's a really good article.

    Basically, it states the reason you think guys think rationally and girls emotionally is because of society's stereotypes of the genders.

    I 100% agree with the article in that sense. However other factors such as estrogen and testosterone do come into play later in life.

    Hormones do effect the way we act and behave. The article mentions that this is specifically about a 'child's' brain- not Men and Women. It articulates that there are differences between the female and male brain, it's just not day and night.

    So I would state that, yes, women tend to be more emotional. Now whether or not a woman's narcissism is 'hardwired' or a product of nurture (or both) I don't know.

    It's an interesting paradox I've noticed. Men may not be overly empathetic, but we're not unduly self absorbed either. We're just 'oblivious' or 'insensitive'. Women are much more empathetic and caring, but also that much more self absorbed and steeped in narcissism.

    Part of me really does believe this is a product of evolutionary biology and conditioning. Women think of themselves because they were the most important members of the society for it to succeed in the future- they birthed and raised children. Men protected and provided food. Generally of the two sexes, males were historically more expendable.

    Agree with the majority of what you wrote there, Vulgotha.

    Certainly a lot of what I've read elsewhere suggests men have been conditioned to always think of the needs of others and place everyone else before them - even if it results in their death. Disposable.

    Women have never been taught this, their safety and security has been predominantly provided by the disposable male. They're taught to put their own needs before those of others. For this reason, some research has suggested that men are better at teaching children empathy as it involves other people's needs.

    Look up Warren Farrel on YouTube, some really insightful stuff. Particularly 'The myth of male power'.

    This is easy.

    Well you see boys and girls, the reason our brains are different is because men think chick on chick action is awesome while girls normally don't think so.

    Men are much more logical and to the point.

    We're also more straight forwardly aggressive.
