To drift off on a tangent—regarding my teenage son. If you followed our discussion on education the other day, where we drifted into semi-home schooling, I’m finding that I have to teach my son to write. I’m having him read at least the first paragraph of your morning posts, so that he can get a look at the craft done properly. It’s going to be of great help.

“Our” Brains?

Speak for yourself.

I’d like to see this same experiment done on females perceptions of males.

My guess would be very different results.

Women have different criteria and more complex reasoning in assessing men.

The article is reinforcing current reasons for discriminating against women. It’s sexist, IMHO. A good scientific study would include both sexes and LGBT brains.

re: #6 researchok

It’s almost comical how quite a few men think women assess men. But, I can’t be too critical, since when I was younger….oy.

I don’t think it’s possible do a good study about this. How many different hypotheses can you create that would explain the data? No matter how much data you get, too many hypotheses emerge.

Everything can’t be proven with double-blind studies.

Ins’t this the same publication that had a scientific study that proved black women were ugly?

re: #10 moderatelyradicalliberal

Scientific American? This is a very mainstream source.

However, they do tend to give psychological studies more credence than deserved. When I post psychological studies I categorize them as ‘culture’, which can be reflective of either social culture or scientific culture.

So let’s focus on what men are interested in?

BS study!

I don’t think the article author, Piercarlo Valdesolo actually read the study.

Go read the study.

They used 159 subjects, 82 of them were women. Your criticism is misplaced.

I printed it out, 38 pages is not going to be digested tonite.

I perused the first few and yes the study seems to be fairly conducted, hence, it would be the SA article I have issues with.
