There have always been many differences between men and women throughout the years including the way they think, speak, show emotions, and face problems.Many people say that men and women “speak in different languages”. Between the male and female sex their communication skills are opposite of each other. When they speak they also have contrasting tones and behavior. Men and women have different outlooks on what words mean to them. Men have conversations about sports, politics, dirty jokes, and cars. Meanwhile women gossip, discuss the latest trends, and talk about food and movies.When women talk they tend to talk with feelings, emotions, and imagery. When men talk they do not go into great detail about a topic or talk with emotions. Language
Differences in brain structure between males and females result in important differences in perceptions, emotional expressions, priorities and behaviors. (*) Relationship traits, problem solving approaches, mathematical abilities, reactions to stress, language, emotions, brain size, pain perception, spatial ability and susceptibility to disorders are just some areas in which men and women react differently because of their differences in brain structure. (*) To some scientists and theorists these many influential biological differences between men and women make gender roles inevitable. (*)
In Amy Cuddy’s “Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are,” Cuddy argues “... We tend to forget, though, the other audience that’s influenced by our nonverbals, and that’s ourselves. We are also influenced by our nonverbals, our thoughts and our feelings and our physiology.”
Gender is often related to how we are perceived and how we are expected to think and act, usually due to the way that society is organized, and in fact has little to do with our biological differences. Feminist Sociologist Ann Oakley states ‘most of the debate about gender differences is angled at proving that women are/are not different from men, rather than proving that men are/are not different from women. If this facts needs explaining, it is enough to point out the bias of our culture is still patriarchal…’ (Oakley,
Gender roles have caused rage throughout the nation in the ongoing struggle for equality. This battle of the sexes has been going on for many years, decades, and even centuries. Motherly instincts gave women a label of weakness, and in some aspects, this is true. This is all dependent on perspective though. Women are labeled as ‘emotional train wrecks’. However, females’ increased expression of emotion compared to the majority of males is not proof of weakness. This emotional difference is due to differing hormonal levels, natural mindset, and their methods of comprehending emotions.
Non-verbal communication is a subtle but crucial way in which humans communicate their emotions and moods, that may determine certain social interactions or not, depending on how others perceive you. A wealth of research suggests that most humans can decipher between the universal facial expressions and infer emotions through them, which is a critical aspect of our daily lives. This study investigated emotion recognition in facial processing from viewing obstructed facial expressions and discovered how important the eyes are when decoding emotional content in others. However, some aspects may influence how accurately we can accomplish this important feature, such as (a) the key components that determine facial expressions; (b) our existing emotion categories and what they consist of, and; (c) gender differences in emotional sensitivity and processing, and; (d) Cultural differences in facial expression universality.
Body language is a term that refers to various forms of nonverbal communication, wherein a person may reveal clues as to some unspoken intention or feeling through their physical appearance (Fast 1). Both its written form and the scientific study of it have been labeled kinesics. Body language and kinesics are based on the behavioral patterns of nonverbal communication (Fast 1). Body language has the ability to tell many different stories. It can contradict verbal communication, speak when you don’t want to, and exhibit certain attitudes that you don’t even
Throughout life there is always a point when we are not very sure about ourselves, it can be during a presentation or just life in general when we feel that we do not belong. During these instances, we do not know what it is that we need to do in order to change the way in which we need to change ourselves. In Amy Cuddy’s presentation, “Your Body Language Shapes Who You Are,” she presents the idea about how our body language affects our actions. She proves her point by showing evidence, some of which include sight and blindness, providing conclusions from experiments, and presenting her personal experience. This allows us to see the affect our body language has in our actions.
Sex differences are apparent in many psychological and biological phenomena. According to Baron-Cohen & Wheelwright (2003) the ability to empathise with others is more accessible to females; the Empathising Quotient (Baron-Cohen & Wheelwright, 2004) in which women scored significantly higher than men further established this prediction. The same result was echoed between the sexes in Reading the Mind in the Eyes test (Baron-Cohen, Wheelwright & Hill, 2001), which is also used to measure empathy (Chapman et al, 2006). However, the opposite is true for males in that they obtain a greater capability for systemising and scored significantly higher in the Systemising Quotient (Baron-Cohen, Richler, Bisarya, Gurunathan & Wheelwright, 2003) than females.
Society can play a big role in gender differences. According to our culture/society, men are strong and stoic and women are mushy and cry far too easily. Bardwick(1971) says that women are entitled to greater emotional freedoms. According to Brody (2000), we all interact and express emotions in accordance with “display rules”. Display rules are rigid social norms that dictate how, when, and where emotions can be expressed by men and women. An example rule may be something like boys should not cry or girls should not be aggressive. Furthermore, he states that these rules are acquired via social interactions (Brody 2000).
Humans beings are the most unique creatures in the world because of their survival of the fittest in the society they will treat another gender inhumanly. Throughout the history, man always attempts to dominate the community; therefore, they believe in the masculinity because they are physically stronger than a woman. Interestingly, man is always appear with stereotype notions that will make them superior to a woman also it will make a woman feel that they are less important than man. One of the typical stereotypes in the society is women more emotional than men. Although, women express their emotions openly does not imply that men are not sensitive as women because it is a psychological misconception we are all human being and we all have
Society expects women to be more emotionally expressive and show more sadness, fear, shame and guilt; to cry and withdraw at negatively charged events. Conversely, men are expected to "shrug it off," to be nonchalant and even happy despite negative emotional situations. While there are statistically measurable emotional differences between the sexes, research reports agree that typical sex differences are smaller than stereotypical differences, and can "be taken as evidence of the strong influence that culture has on such differences" (Whissell, 15).
The emotional differences of men and women vary in temperaments of emotion which indicates a disconnection in communication, moral motivation, stereotypes, and chemical reactions in the brain.
Combined research shows men and women vary little in experiencing emotion but contrast greatly in the expression of emotion. Psychologists have studied the reasons behind the differences through the years and there are still many unanswered questions but there are several well-accepted possible causes and combination of causes. Neuro science and the brain makeup is the first area of proven differences.
The male and female composure has many differences that make up the structure of the society we cherish. There are contradicting features between a man and woman. Men are stamped by muscular platforms that complement rigid labor. Women are slightly less muscular, but more flexible and emotional in work. The female body has a wonderful gift of birthing a child. Creating a life within her womb is what allows both sexes to co-exist today. Men have the key that allows the beginning of a youngling within females? ovaries. A man tends to be less emotional than a woman due to higher testosterone levels in his genetic make up. Women have higher levels of estrogen moreover testosterone, which gives way to a more compassionate lifestyle. Ability to sense smell, touch, taste, sight, and sound is stronger
