Why Men are Deaf When Reading Newspapers
Do you ever wonder why it is that you can never have a conversation with your partner while he is reading, watching tv or doing something else?
Do you ever wonder; when getting your partner’s attention; while he is reading or watching tv is so darn hard? Here you are sitting beside him, or in close proximity of him and you are talking away and you happen to pop a question in there and he sits there continuing to do the same thing he has been doing and does not answer! Do you feel frustrated at having him not pay attention to you at that point?
Consider this… Men and women’s brains are wired completely differently. Literally!! Did you know that women have more connections to the left and right sides of their brains than men? Basically put, there is a bundle of nerve fibers called the corpus callosum that connects the two sides together. It is kind of like a cable wire between two computers. In the brain of a woman there is a thicker cable with up to 30% more connections than in the man’s giving the woman an advantage to being able to do more things at once. Not only that but a study done by Neurologist Roger Gorski of the University of California has also given evidence to the fact that men and women use different parts of the brain when doing the same thing. Thus it is concluded that men generally can only focus on one thing at a time, where women can do many things at once.
I find it much less frustrating just knowing this information when I am with a member of the opposite sex and trying to get him to answer a question; while he is doing something else. It saves a lot of arguments and negativity in my world.
