Why don’t men hear a request to put out the rubbish while they’re reading a newspaper? Why do men turn off the radio when they’re parking? Why do women turn maps upside down to read them, but men never do?

In their controversial book on the differences between the way men and women think,  Why Men don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps, Barbara and Allan Pease travelled around the world, investigating evolutionary biology, analysing psychologists, studying social change.

One of the tests included in this book is the Brain-Wiring Test, designed to indicate the masculinity or feminity of your brain patterns.

Check it yourself and answer the questions as honestly as you can: here’s the test (PDF format- 3 pages)!

And here your can check the the result.

“Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus”: Are they?

Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus, by John Gray, was published in May 1992 and stayed in the best selling lists for 6 years. In his book, Dr Gray, a doctor in phychology, defends the theory that men and women can’t easily understand each other unless they become aware of the fact that they are as different as beings from different planets. He offers many suggestions for improving husband-wife relationships by understanding the communication style and emotional needs of the opposite gender.

Watch John Gray explaining some of his theories.

“What Makes Men Happy is Not the Same for Women”

How Men Communicate”

“How Men and Women Cope with Stress Differently”

Do you agree with Gray?

Read this post in a blog about a writing experiment carried out by an English professor from the University of Phoenix, which seems to illustrate John Gray’s theory.
