3 Facts About Women: How and What They Talk About
Male and female sex are two very different worlds. If you are one of those who deny this fact and argue that the difference in views on the world between a man and a woman is insignificant, we have for you a new study and new facts. This time, scientists have tried to find out whether it is possible to trace the difference between a man and a woman with the help of linguistic analysis. The results turned out to be interesting. Much more interesting, that sex facts about women.
Beasts And Dresses
Linguists put an experiment: 25 male students and 25 female students were asked to write 100 words each, without making up sentences. Time for the task was limited. As a result, there were 5000 words (and some additional weird facts about women), the analysis of which showed:
The men’s group in total wrote more different words; women’s lists coincided with each other in many positions.
In men’s lists, there were many words related to animals; in women’s list there were many words related to clothing, fabrics, food and ways of cooking it, which is obvious in case of Russian women dating.
Women’s lists, as a rule, described the immediate environment, personal feelings and emotions, psychological conditions. But men’s word sets were distracted from their own personality, not locked in the inner world.
In male sets, words that rhyme or are consonant with each other (a man wrote “deer” – on the automatic he wrote “beer”, “seer” and “roar”) were met more often and that means men attach more importance to sounding of words than women. Is not that why there are much great poets than poetesses in our world?
You Speak – She’s Listening
Summing up the accumulated experience, the researchers made a conclusion: the speech styles of men and women primarily differ in the extent to which both take into account the partner’s reaction to the previous statement. During the conversation, the man is more focused on his own statements, and the woman – on the statements of the one with whom she talks. If you want to learn some new interesting facts about women, just try to study your girlfriend’s psychology whe she is talking to someone.
In practice, it turns out that if the interlocutor changes the topic and the mood of the conversation – the woman adjusts. The man perceives such a situation as a failure and persistently continues to talk about what he was talking a moment ago. Linguists describe this phenomenon in the following way: a woman is focused on the tactics of communicative cooperation, the man – on the tactics of communicative rivalry.
No more, No Less
All conversations and “facts about women” from the series “a man says 7,000 words for a day, and a woman – 20,000” is a pure water speculation. There is not a single serious study that would confirm this fact. But there is a lot of research proving that we all speak plus or minus equally abundantly (or meagerly).
The difference lies in another plane: where, with whom and how men and women talk. The latter often speak at home, with family, friends, relatives and, if they start talking, say more words during one conversation. Men are more likely to communicate on work, with colleagues, and with friends. Our goal with you, my friend, is to exchange with information, but not meaningless sensations. During a day we have more dialogues than girls, but all of them are shorter. And in the end it turns out that during a day the average representatives of both sexes say about the same number of words.
Once again, the difference between the way of thinking of a man and a woman was clearly demonstrated by scientists. Yes, we are united by one important factor: we are people, we are made up of the same flesh and blood, but mentally we are very different. The earlier we begin to admit this fact, not trying to find tricks and hidden attempts to humiliate someone, the easier it will be for us to communicate with each other. After all, this picture of the world is much more interesting. It opens up to the curious gaze countless possibilities for creativity and research, as well as for meaningful, lively human communication.
