Men vs. Women

Sex Differences

Book Study


1-Credit   |   Independent Book Study

Ready for this? Imagine that males have higher math scores vs women, but only in countries where there is discrimination on-the-basis-of-sex. Imagine that behaviors like walking out of a fight, misreading a look, responding to tone of voice, have the opposite effect and different meaning for a male vs a female. Their preferences for moving vs talking may explain the difference between happiness and break ups, work mysteries, and academic behavior. You will want to know at least these 7 differences. Neurology, hormones, and culture work together for the sometimes-hilarious opposites. Now you can understand what happens in her brain when faced with stereotype threat and the neurostrategies to neutralize them. Equity depends on training how motion vs talking may change our lives.
