Is there a War of the Sexes or is it just a Great Divide? A professor of clinical psychiatry has found that male brains and female brains are simply wired differently.
Men are often baffled that women are “too emotional” and women get frustrated by men not being “emotional enough”.
Dr Louann Brizendine, carries out clinical work and research as a neuropsychiatrist and professor of clinical psychiatry. …
For decades, a mainstream school of though has argued that psychological and emotional differences between men and women are socially constructed. …
Our brains have two emotional systems that work in tandem. The first – ‘System’ or ‘MNS’ – enables us to empathise with others. The second, the ‘Parietal Junction System’ or TPJ triggers the brain’s problem-solving circuits to find solutions for emotional problems. This is cognitive empathy.
Unsurprisingly to those who have spent their lives on Planet Earth, males brains use TPJ more than MNS. The advantage of TPJ is that their thought processes are less clouded by emotion which strengthens their ability to find practical solutions to problems. Although this can make men appear uncaring sometimes they may simply be figuring out a problem in the way their brain directs them to. A man’s way of showing he cares about a woman will often be to try and solve a problem for her or do something practical for her.
