THE FEMALE BRAIN LOUANN BRIZENDINE PDF

Brizendine starts The Female Brain saying that at the time of her studies all subjects of research and studies were males. She set out to change that. Louann Brizendine instead says that women are under-represented in math and sciences not because they are less capable, but because their interests lie elsewhere. Sciences are more solitary professions, and women are more drawn to professions that allow them to connect. And keeping social harmony is a matter of life and death for women even in the 21st century. The author brings examples from children as well as adults, explaining that girls play as a mean to connect, while men make the game the center stage and in turn the game becomes a mean for social rank, power and defense of territory.

Brizendine starts The Female Brain saying that at the time of her studies all subjects of research and studies were males. She set out to change that.

Louann Brizendine instead says that women are under-represented in math and sciences not because they are less capable, but because their interests lie elsewhere. Sciences are more solitary professions, and women are more drawn to professions that allow them to connect. And keeping social harmony is a matter of life and death for women even in the 21st century.

The author brings examples from children as well as adults, explaining that girls play as a mean to connect, while men make the game the center stage and in turn the game becomes a mean for social rank, power and defense of territory.

Men also have verbal production which is more about aggression and status. They brag, command, override others time to speak etc. They do not avoid conflict and aggression and competition is part of their genetic makeup. They simply use a different weapon and defend a different territory: relationships.

Her goal is to organize her world in a web of connections so that she is at the center of it. The aggression in women is just different and, in many ways, more subtle. Power matters to both sexes. We just approach it differently. And they become obsessed with being attractive to boys. They use subtle tools such as spreading rumors to undermine a rival. That way they can cover their tracks and hide their real intention -ie. Men self-esteem, on the other hand, is based on being independent from everyone else.

One of the biggest stressors for women is losing their intimate relationships. The argument goes that men who were good at telling lies had an advantage in reproducing, and women who were better at emotional intelligence and spotting those lie had an advantage by not falling for those lies. Brizendine says that women want to settle down with a nurturing men. And well, birds are not really humans, are they.

We have already reviewed this theory on Sperm Wars. Women who are in an adulterous relationships orgasms less with their partner. My Note: this theory provides no real evidence. If a woman is having an adulterous relationship it can easily be because she likes the other man more, right?

And my personal point of view is that there are brain differences, which in turn are can also be encouraged -as it most often happens- or discouraged by culture. Bit Unstructured I found that some information repeat, like for example women and social skills or women and their interest in developing and keeping positive relationships. I would have preferred a structure more based on clearly defined topics instead of a more free-wheeling one.

PROS Great Overview of Differences The book provides the reader with an accessible format to understand some basic differences between men and women. Thus, this book can give the readers a very good overview on the psychological differences between men and women. Overall, I can recommend The Female Brain.

How Women Think

Louann Brizendine walks her readers through the science behind the male brain in hopes that she helps her audience understand the male brain "as the fine-tuned and complex instrument that it actually is," as she writes in her book.

By Robin Marantz Henig Sept. My brother, who even at 12 believed in the sanctity of data, decided to keep a written record of when Mom was irritable and see whether it correlated with what he could deduce about her menstrual cycle. It was hard to contradict the circumstantial evidence: when our mother had her period, she was harder to live with. My brother, perhaps not surprisingly, grew up to be an epidemiologist. I grew up to be a science writer. Instead, she offers breezy generalizations. Image Louann BrizendineCredit
