A few neurological differences between women and men -- from Louann Brizendine's The Female Brain:
"Women use 20,000 words per day; men use 7,000 per day.
"Women excel at knowing what people are feeling; men have difficulty spotting an emotion unless someone cries or threatens bodily harm.
"Thoughts about sex enter women's brains once every couple of days; for men, thoughts about sex occur every minute."
And, here's an interesting bit of news:
"Connecting through talking activates the pleasure centers in a girl's brain. We're not talking about a small amount of pleasure. This is huge. It's a major dopamine and oxytocin rush, which is the biggest, fattest neurological reward you can get outside of an orgasm."
And yo! Women! Watch out how you hand out those hugs!
"Research shows that the female brain naturally releases oxytocin after a 20-second hug. The embrace bonds the huggers and triggers the brain's trust circuits. So Brizendine advises, don't let a guy hug you unless you plan to trust him.______
"'And if you do,' she said, "make sure it lasts 20 seconds.'" MORE >>>
