With feeling, it's erratic, something you don't expect or really control.
And honestly, I hate it.
I'd rather not have it at all.

But I envy the people who can do it.

Woman, man, it doesn't matter. Either can go about using more rational than emotion or vice versa. It really depends on the person. Men often feel pressured to not get emotional, or hide it, because of generalizations like this unfortunately.

If you're going to generalize it, you'd need statistics. I don't think I'll be seeing anything.


What kind of statistics are you looking for? It is essentially a fact that there are different trends in brains based on gender, although a large part of the information we receive we don't perfectly understand. Additionally, while brains are malleable, information looking at infant brains and other closely related species indicates that this is not merely based on socialization. Finally, many of the "gender stereotypes" seem to largely be perpetuated throughout history, so logic would suggest that evolution has caused these traits to be at least somewhat be selected for and likely amplified causing a gendered distinction in certain aspects of biology including the brain.

"Studies in nonhuman animals and younger human populations (infants/children) offer converging evidence that sex differences in empathy have phylogenetic and ontogenetic roots in biology and are not merely cultural byproducts driven by socialization."

True, it's quite a challenge, controlling your emotions, it's probably the test of a lifetime. I agree that there are some times in life when you have to put your feelings aside.

I hope you manage to find the joy of accepting your feelings, flawed as they are, our feelings are wonderful when they aren't being a pain in the tush

I'm a woman and approach both with feelings and thinking, it depends on the situation. I have to read things through and think about it before stating my own opinion.

It's probably true to an extent for the majority, though it's most likely something that's partly biological, and partly societal.

probably differs from individual to individual.


I personally am both a thinker and a feeler. I use my emotions and my logic to guide me through life.

If a man or a woman were posed a question in this way.... starting with... either ..What do you feel or What do you think about "this or that" ?

In what way would it be easiest or more comfortable for each to respond?

Right. There is a theory that males are more selfless than females because nature intends them to fight off dangerous predators within their territory without regard for their own safety. The thinking/feeling theory is basically an extension of that and is probably overcomplicated. In reality, males use short-cuts in their thought processes that help to avoid risk assessment, whereas females keep their risk assessment so that they are more concerned with keeping themselves and their kids safe.

Don't bombard me with "this is a sexist statement". I did say I believe, I didn't say we all are.


You're making a sweeping generalization about male and female behavior which has been held up as a stereotype forever, so your stated belief is sexist by definition. (I say this not to bombard you, but as a civilized reply to your post.)

I prefer to analyze behavior on an individual basis, myself.


Thing is you can't deny each gender has biological similarities that could affect the way they think.

I think nothing of your statement since it is just generalization, I am a thinker and a feeler, mostly a thinker whose feelings deeply intertwine with her thinking I'd say. Whatever, it doesn't matter.

Men feel alot, and women think alot. Biology alone doesn't say such idiocy, and men are VERY emotional, just as much as women if inot more. Biology is just a contributor. We have menstrual cycles and fluctuating hormone levels,, , in our forties we go through menopause.men have similar issues as testosterone rises at puberty, their levels decrease as they age and sometimes this is referred as andropause.

Men also have the social ptessure to be stoic, emotionless, to be masculine men, likewise women are pressure to be sensitive, nurturing and empathetic. Men at a young age learn to suppress their emotions, lilewize, women are encouraged to express theirs.
That's why. Biology is just a part, its a sum of its parts.

I'll also add that these biological influences do hold a lot of importance in many different areas despite "perpetuating gender stereotypes", and science should never shy away from a topic because it is sensitive or controversial. Biological insights could help illuminate some of the reasoning behind why men hold a greater number of positions in STEM fields and CEO-type positions that doesn't imply discrimination, which could influence future policy changes. Additionally, gendered biology could very much have an important role in the discussion of education and medicine and shape the direction these systems take on many different issues.
