MEN'S BRAINS vs WOMEN'S BRAINS

Wendy . Blog Publicado 03 Febrero 2009

Men's brains and women's brains don't work in the same way.

YOU are trying to finish a project for school. You also have to get your mother a birthday present, take care of your little brothers and sisters in the afternoon and visit your grandmother on Sunday. You just finished telling your boyfriend all about it, and he answered by saying, “Let’s go to a movie tonight. And we could go to the mountains this weekend”. You’re furious. He wasn’t even listening to you.

YOU are worried about your girlfriend. She wants to spend all her time with her family or at the library studying. You can’t believe it. You just asked her to go to a great movie tonight and suggested going skiing on the weekend. She just stormed out of the room yelling, “You never listen to me”.

YOU just can’t understand your husband. You just got home from work after having gone to the supermarket. YOU put away the food, help the kids with their homework and start getting dinner ready. He comes home, says Hi, and gives everyone a kiss. YOU start to tell him about your day and the dozen things you need to do this week. After 2 minutes he leaves the room and turns on the computer. Grrr. He doesn’t care what you’re saying. He’s turning you off.

YOU get home after a long hard day at work. The kids are screaming, your wife is running around the kitchen, and the dog won’t stop barking. You try to say something, but no one is paying any attention to you. You give up and decide to watch the news.

Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?
There is a good explanation for this difference between men and women.
