Response to liberal N proud (Original post)

2. what i found most interesting is mens mind did not engage in the effort of telling emotion.

and my thought would be the dismissal men are taught from a young age, to do with women. so i read the rest of the article. one can argue the evo answer, and not surprised by that at all, but the bottom line is the dismissal of women as less, inferior, insignificant that created this. i do not think i would be throwing that at a wife as an "i told you so". though i am a strong believer she talk to you and not expect you to read her mind. i hate that when that is expected by me. BUT...


But exactly why this happens isn't clear. While men could be culturally conditioned to pay less attention to women's emotional cues, another possibility is that their differential response is hard-wired by humans' evolutionary past.

"As men were more involved in hunting and territory fights, it would have been important for them to be able to predict and foresee the intentions and actions of their male rivals," the researchers write in the paper.
