Finding: According to online dating specialist and lifestyle radio commentator, Diane Bishop, women talk nearly three times as much as men – something we already suspected, right guys? But according to Ms. Bishop these suspicions are a matter of fact!
Women on average will chalk up 20,000 words a day compared to 9,000 a day by men. I can’t help but think that if someone can’t express themselves adequately in just one day with 9,000 words then there’s something not quite right, but maybe that’s just me. The male species often live by the philosophy that actions speak louder than words.
Women also talk at a faster speed than men using more mental capacity and dedicate more brain cells to verbalizing their feelings compared to men. Congenital differences between the male and female mental capacity explicate why women are by nature more talkative than men.
Other core differences are traced back to the womb where life itself begins whereby male testosterone shapes the developing mind. These delicate and complicated factors are responsible for emotion, communication, memory and the process begins even before birth – sorry ladies, this means you have no chance of changing his pre destined ways!
But is it all bad news for men? Testosterone as well cuts back the size of the section of the brain affected by the sense of hearing – granting men the chance to become “inattentive” to the most rational of statements put forward by their other half or lady friend.
Other research regarding the effects of testosterone on the brain gives a more skeptical version compared to the research and findings explained by our dating sites and relationships expert, Ms. Bishop. Additional scientific analysis tells us that social conditioning, personality traits and upbringing has a determining influence.
Even if genetics and gender plays a significant role, surely the amount in which we talk is also determined by who we are with, how we feel at that time, whether we are feeling confident at a given moment and what we are doing.
This may come as a shock to you, because it did to me, by simply talking activates a deluge of brain chemicals giving women a kick that can be compared to the rush experienced by heroin users.
Regardless of these findings, there is a wide perception that women talk a lot, but we wouldn’t have it any other way, right guys?
