Post Women less tolerant of each other than men are, study finds

The research, published in the US journal Psychological Science, found that women formed a negative view of their peers much quicker than men did.

The team from Emmanuel College in Boston asked male and female college students to rate their room-mates under different scenarios.

When asked to judge how they would rate their room-mates if they carried out a single fictional act of negative behaviour, after they had been otherwise completely trustworthy, women were far more likely to be critical of them.

Men, on the other hand, were much more tolerant.

Women were also more likely to switch to a new room-mate than men were.

The authors, led by associate professor of psychology Joyce Benenson, concluded that women were harsher on their peers because they expected more from their same-sex relationships than men did.

They wrote: "Women may simply weight negative information more heavily than men do, because negative information disrupts the establishment of intimacy, which serves a more important function in same-sex relationships for women than for men."

While the study did not take place in the workplace itself, it would appear to back up previous surveys that have found women prefer to work for a male boss.

ach!
Must ... fight ... sarcastic, ... sexist ... comment.


But on the flip side, men (or at least the small segment that are violent) typically vastly outnumber the women when it comes to both committing violent crime, and men being more likely to be the victim of violent crime (with obvious exception of rape).

True women are less physically violent. They can only make you wish you were dead.

If giving a look would cause death, there'd be no men alive...

There is a video skit somewhere on the net where husbands are encouraged to treat their marriage like an online game.
They get rewards for completing quests like doing the dishes or taking out the trash.
The wives, much more experienced, are given the capability to "cause death" by a look, and the husbands try to level up.

Part of the skit has three couples going into a baby shower. Shortly thereafter, the three husbands exit the baby shower in "ghost" form cause their wives had killed them for some comment they made...

A good friend of mine believes in a certain rule for his marriage...

"You gotta have 10 "attaboys" for every 1 "oh sh*t."...
