Five Interesting Facts About The Female Brain
Here are just a few of the ways that the female brain differs from its male counterpart.
Both men and women are subject to changes due to hormone levels, but females are particularly vulnerable to these changes because their hormone levels are always in flux.
A woman’s reproductive system and its monthly cycle subject the brain to an ever-changing flow of hormones, which play a key role in her behavior.
Women’s intuition is not just a myth, in fact, scientists theorize that women may have a sort of “sixth sense” that developed over the ages as women gave birth to and cared for children.
It can be pretty hard to figure out what’s bothering a crying baby, so in response, women may have developed that intuition that men just don’t have simply because they needed it.
More passive aggression
Women often express aggression differently than men. While guys are more likely to lash out with physical violence, women express aggressive behavior in an entirely different way. Instead of raising a fist, a women is more likely to use her head and approach the situation more diplomatically, perhaps relying on manipulation or negotiation to settle a dispute.
Females often have a serious aversion to uncertainty. This is true especially for a women who is dealing with conflict in a intimate relationship. The “silent treatment” may be the most hurtful action a man can adopt when working through a conflict with a woman.
The chemicals that influence the female brain during conflict are not dissimilar to those that are present during a seizure. Women “want to know,” and the “not knowing” can cause them extreme distress and frustration.
While females tend to be more risk-averse for much of their lives, they often experience a change after they go though menopause. This may result in increased desire to take on new challenges and become more involved with any number of new activities from volunteerism to advancing her career.
