Bringing people together to improve communication of research findings
Imagine a typical husband-wife conversation: She says: “You are so stubborn, like a donkey!“, while he says: “You are illogical“. Why is that? Well, females have a bigger corpus callosum, which connects the two hemispheres of the brain, so they see everything from an emotional standpoint: Their memories and their dreams at night are about feelings, and that women are more romantic in physical terms (sex) is a no-brainer. Females, especially if they are intelligent, detect lies much easier. In a situation when somebody gives a speech, men will focus on the content and try to figure out what they can use to solve problems in their own lives. The ladies look at the face of the speaker listen to the pitch of his voice and observe the composure of his body to find out if he is tense or relaxed and easy-going. They feel easily if the content of the message and the way it is delivered are in accordance. Men, on the other hand, look for logic and causality everywhere, even where there is none, and are more theoretical, less flexible and less down-to-earth than women.
What characterizes high social / political intelligence in men and women?
First of all, integrity, this goes especially for men. Do not lie, and if you are forced to, try to steer the conversation in another direction. It is better to say nothing than to lie. Do what you say and say what you mean. A woman may use cunning from time to time, but she should be nice-always- and listen thoroughly. Most women perform better in teamwork, since they are more cooperative than men. Groups of men are more hierarchic and men attack each other-verbally or laugh about others, more than women do.
Finally: This is nothing new, just read the bible, part one, genesis: Eve, the archetypal woman is portrayed with the symbol for cunning, the snake, while Adam, who stands for the male part of mankind, is seduced into fighting and aggression over a set of rules about “good and evil” (laws). In the story of Samson and Delilah you see a man denying his vulnerability and a woman betraying him, out of vanity.
