Women VS Men: 24 Reasons Why Women Are Better


1. Women are Smarter


According to a study of IQ tests from around the world, women have higher intelligent quotients than men. Researcher James Flynn checked out the IQs of people from the U.S., Europe, Canada, New Zealand, Argentine, and Estonia, and found that women scored above their male counter parts. Despite the fact that women do not take up as many leadership positions as men, women are actually more intelligent on the average.

2. Women Handle Stress Better

It is agreed that women sob and cry whenever they have challenges, but that doesn’t stop them from being more rational thinkers than men. Once the tears dry up, women can think more clearly and can stay more composed in times of adversity. There is a scientific proof to this fact. Three hormones – cortisol, epinephrine, and oxytocin, play a role in stress management and are responsible for men and women reacting differently. When a woman encounters stress, the levels of cortisol and epinephrine rises, elevating blood pressure and blood sugar levels. This is where oxytocin comes to play. It promotes a calming effect lowering the levels of stress hormones. In men, oxytocin is secreted in smaller amounts compared to women and hence this puts men on the shorter end of the stick, when it comes to stress management. More so, women have high levels of estrogen in their bloodstream which blocks the negative impact of stress on the brain.

3. Women are Neater and More Hygienic

Even without science, this fact is obvious. Women bath more often, wash more often, clean the house more often, shave more often and smell better because they can’t stand dirt. A study from San Diego State University of offices across the U.S. found that men’s desks and offices have more germs than women’s. Researchers discovered that men had anywhere from 10 to 20 percent more bacteria in their spaces than women, clearly, women are more hygienic. Also, women love to walk into their house and see it clean – its one way they send good signals to the brain.

Women generally want their relationships to work and so they strive to make that happen. Hormones also play an important role in making women more sensitive and perceptive to the needs of a relationship than the man. Men have as much as 20 times more testosterone in their systems than women. This makes men typically more aggressive, dominant and more focused on the physical aspects of relationship – sex, and not the relationship itself.

5. Women Have Sharper Memories

Also, studies have suggested that young girls can memorize more words than boys their age. It is also believed that a woman’s memory power gets better with age, while that of the men does not have any significant improvement.

6. Women are Better at Communicating
