I think there is a difference between being rational or being “emotional”. Being rational means you base decisions on logic and reason. Acting in emotion is self-explanatory.

Women are often thought to be more emotional; men less so.

That being said, I think it comes down to the individual.

Wow...I am super surprised ay some of the things I have read here...:ohmy: :huh: :angry:

1. i think in general the men may have a edge -women do tend to be very hasty if upset ...


2. I think men in general are simpler human beings, more straightforward and less inclined to hysterical behaviour. That's just generally speaking of course.


3. I don't think men are more rational, but I do think that women are more emotional and our judgement is often impaired by our emotions.

Regarding:

#1...I make no hasty decisions, never have...people have gotten on my case because I "took too long" to decide.
Making decisions based on emotion is NOT a good idea...ever.

#2.... I am a very straighforward, blunt, to-the-point person..
This causes me issues on the dating sites, because I *am* that way...and don't engage in whatever it is the guys expect me to...foofy talk...goofy romaticisms..
Dude..we just started talking..I am sorry if 4 messages and ONE phone call in YOU don't think i am saying the "right" things/ making with the "cutesy" talk...

"Hysterical"???
I am not even going to dignify that by parsing it out.

#3.... See #2....
I have been given crap because I don't "speak with your heart, not your head"....
Again, dude...I don't know you...had a few exchanges of shallow small talk.....I don't make with "from the heart" unless it is with a partner or someone I know well.....SOD OFF.


I am a super practical, rational, pragmatic and logical person..
If some guy thinks I "lack emotion" because I do not behave on a way he thinks women should..or all the women he has encountered heretofore*have*...that's not a me problem, buddy...that's a YOU problem.

Yes,

Women panic when water in the basement gets up to their neck.

Men get a pump.

Women plead with men to get a pump but it is mostly ignored until the first drowning

Sorry if those are the kind of women you have run across...
Maybe you need to up your standards.

Myself, I am the one looking at a situation and telling you all the ways it can go wrong....and the men tell me "you think too much.."
Then proceed to have the tree they are cutting down fall the wrong way and take the wires and pole down......like I said it would.

Comparing one gender vs. another will , at best , always be contingent on(the group), and inconclusive.
The studying of a group is just that, the studying of that particular group. Any results will pertain to the group studied, and may/will differ when compared to other groups. As we all are a member of the same species, any/all characteristics are inherited and/ or passed genetically to us all from both genders. So it is near impossible to conclude , with any certainty, one gender's logic, rationality, and intelligence over another.
