Men are from Mars and women – from Venus

You’ve surely heard this saying plenty of times. It’s associated with many different aspects of life but the most important thing is connected with feelings. The way we show our emotions is often completely different in case of men and women.

Why do women and men show their feelings so differently?

Psychologists claim that men are socially expected to behave as alpha men. They often think that they’re allowed to have only the feelings that are considered as male. These are courage, sense of humour, control, power, etc. 

Weakness, fear, sensitivity or compassion are socially perceived as female emotions. Men often think that if they show any of them, they will be considered as less masculine. It’s obvious that there are many differences between men and women when it comes to expressing feelings.

The differences are also connected with the brain structure. A female’s brain code is connected with compassion. Male’s – with understanding and creating systems. What’s more, women are often „soaked with” different kinds of emotions. They’re not as capable of analytical and reasonable thinking as men are. So we’ve got balance, a win-win situation which enables us to create a symbiosis. Do you agree? :)
