Sex researchers report that women look at men’s bodies as much as, and usually more than men look at women’s. Women have a greater variety of cones in the retina of the eye- allowing them to describe colours in greater detail- and also have wider peripheral vision than men.
As a nest defender, a woman has brain software that allows her to receive an arc of at least 45 degrees clear vision to each side of her head and above and below her nose. Some women’s peripheral vision is effective up to almost 180 degrees.
Men usually turn their heads
Men literally have ‘tunnel vision,’ that’s why they’re always so obvious when they look at other women. They have to turn their heads.
A man’s eyes are larger than a woman’s and his brain configures them for a type of long-distance tunnel vision which means that he can see clearly and accurately directly infront of him, though over a much narrower field and over greater distances, almost like a pair of binoculars.
Modern man can find his way effortlessly to a distant pub, but can never find things in fridges and cupboards. New research suggests that male brains are searching in the fridge for the word B-U-T-T-E-R. If it’s facing the wrong way, he virtually can’t see it.
Because of their tunnel vision, men move their heads from side to side and up and down as they scan for the ‘missing’ objects. Men’s eyesight is configured for long distances: that’s why they have difficulty locating things at close range- keys, socks, etc.
Women always hide things from Men
Well- actually they don’t; it just feels like that to men. Men often accuse women of hiding things from them in drawers and cupboards. Socks, underwear, butter, car keys, wallets- they’re all there, they just can’t see them.
With her wider arc of peripheral vision a woman can see most of the contents of a fridge or cupboard or across a room and later remember objects in a complex random pattern- such as where the butter or jam is in the refrigerator.
Women can fib better
Research reveals that, in face-to-face communications, non-verbal signals account for 60-80% of the impact of the message, while vocal sounds and words account for the balance.
A woman’s superior sensory equipment picks up and analyses this information and her brain’s ability to rapidly transfer between hemispheres, makes her more proficient at integrating and deciphering verbal, visual and other signals. In other words, she can spot a fibber a mile off. This is why most men have difficulty lying to a woman face-to-face.
Men can’t fib their way out of a paper-bag
As most women know, lying to a man face-to-face is comparatively easy, as he does not have the necessary sensitivity to spot incongruities between her verbal and non-verbal signals.
Most men, if they’re going to lie to a woman, would be far better off doing it over the phone, in a letter or with all the lights off, and a blanket over their head.
Women can detect emotions through tone of voice
Women are more sensitive to differentiating tone changes, voice volume and pitch. This enables them to hear emotional changes in children and adults.
This ability goes a long way to explaining the women’s phrase, “don’t use that tone of voice with me!” when arguing with men and boys. Most males don’t have a clue what she’s talking about.
Men, however, shouldn’t despair. They are excellent at identifying and imitating animal sounds, which would have been a significant advantage for the ancient hunter.
Sadly, there’s not much call for this skill these days. Boys are often chastised by ‘grown-ups’ for not listening. But as boys grow, particularly at puberty, their ear canals undergo growth spurts that can cause temporary deafness. Boys are equipped for more effective seeing than hearing.
Female teachers have been found to reprimand girls differently to boys, and seem intuitively to understand male and female hearing differences.
Female teachers continue to reprimand girls even if eye contact is lost. If a boy refuses eye contact, many female teachers intuitively understand that he probably either can’t hear or is not listening, and will say, ‘look at me when I speak to you.’
In a room of fifty couples, it takes the average woman less than ten minutes to have analysed the relationship between each couple in the room. She can see who is who, what’s what and how they’re all feeling.
It’s not that men are insensitive to the small details. The brains just aren’t organised to pick up the non-verbal signals that allow women to notice small details and changes in the appearance of others.
