How True are the Gender Stereotypes?

7/07/2013 DK 0 Comments

We often hear, and sometimes unknowingly subscribe to the idea, that men and women are 'naturally' some way or the other. Men are naturally less sensitive and aggressive, whereas women are biologically designed to be sensitive and emotional. Whilst there are studies that show some evidence of these stereotypes (for example, in evolutionary psychology), some studies have found that not all of these stereotypes are true, especially when taking into consideration the role of social rules.


On BuzzFeed, Kevin Tang has put together a list of 8 studies that debunk male gender stereotypes:

1. Between infancy and first grade, boys express their emotions more passionately than girls.

2. Worldwide, boys aren't any better at maths than girls.

3. Young men are more emotionally vulnerable to troubles in their relationships than young women are.

4. Men are less rational investors than women.

5. Men aren't worse than women at reading emotional cues.

6. Men monitor their partners more than women.

7. Men are four times as likely as women to commit suicide after divorce.

8. In anonymous settings, men aren't more aggressive than women.
