Five Ways Men and Women Sense Things Differently
Health.com posted an article about how men and women sense things differently. And across the board, women tend to have the advantage. Here are the five main senses, and how they're different for men and women . . .it's kinda amazing!
Women see more colors. A study in 2012 found that women see more shades of red, green, yellow, and blue. And men are also more likely to have some form of color blindness.
Most women have a finer sense of touch. But not necessarily. It's all about the size of your fingers. A study in 2009 found that smaller fingertips tend to be more sensitive. And men usually have bigger fingers than women.
Women are better at hearing noises that are high-pitched. But as they get older, they can't hear LOW pitches as well as men. With that said, guys are five times more likely to suffer hea
ring loss at some point in their life.
Women have a better sense of smell. A study last year found women have almost 50% more neurons in the part of the brain that helps distinguish between different odors. Which might be an evolutionary thing that has to do with picking a mate.
Women have stronger palates. A study at Yale found that women have more taste buds on their tongue. So they're usually better at distinguishing between things that are bitter, sour, and sweet.
