  • Most Women are More Emotional Than Men

    Myers-Briggs personality tests show that the most common personality types for women involve the F or feeling function, and the most common personality types for men are of the T or thinking functions. These tests are considered at least 75% accurate. I am aware that this is one indicator of personality.

    The second supporting statement for this argument is, ask any man, and ask any woman who happens to be of the T function. Most will answer 'yes' to this age old question.

    BTW, this comment was written by an INTJ female. None of you actually believe a typical woman could make such a 'logical' argument...Do you?

  • Yes, women are more emotional.

    Both men and women have a number of emotions that they both experience. Women experience a greater deal of emotions and are more sensitive than men. Everything seems to emotionally bother a woman. They are often more hormonal and get upset a lot easier than men do. Women show much more emotion in relationships then men do.

  • Yes

    Yes, but that does not mean that men do not have the emotional capacity of women. I think men are culturally trained to act a specific way and be distant from their emotional side as a result of parental upbringing and also what society has set as "manly" standards. I do believe there are also hormonal balances that do affect this too.

  • It depends upon the emotion

    Women and men are equally emotional. However, this is only quantifiable by what emotions it is socially acceptable for each to express. Women are allowed to show fear and sadness and it is perfectly acceptable for them to cry in public. Men are allowed to show lust and desire and it is socially acceptable for them to openly want something or someone, and to even pursue it. Anger is also far more acceptable in men, which is why they are allowed to express it more often and are even encouraged to do so through aggressive sports and action films. It is more acceptable for a woman to express love, and they express it openly in both romantic and familial relationships. I guess one sex could be defined as more "emotional" than the other, but it depends upon what emotion the asker uses to define "emotional."

  • Woman are such idiots

    Hhhhhhhdhdhfhfjhhhhh is the most direct route in my the same as the only thing is the most important thing is the best of all the way you are so cute I just want a boyfriend and girlfriend in the morning is the most recent update has a lot more to

  • It might be true but men can have as many feelings as girls can.

    I'm young but I do cry a lot I never see my father or brothers crying even in the saddest things. It must be the brains way of options. The brain must have different ways of saying "I don't care". When girls must have different emotions most of the time. Remember I am young so this cant really be accurate.

  • Response to physiological stimulus

    All the study showed was that the men has a greater physiological response to emotion. This however would not directly relate to what the individual felt. This is similar to drugs, when someone takes 5mg of vicidon and someone else is taking 10mg over a period of time, the person taking 10mg will have a much greater resistance to the drug. The 10mg person would have to take a lot more to feel the same effect as the 5mg person. All the study showed was that they produce more, but it cant show that they actually had more "feeling." Men would have to produce more than woman because of their size and increases resistance.

    As for the male soldier coming home part of the study.... Of course it will hit men harder than women, men think about being in war all the time and thus have the better ability to relate to these men.

    From all of this we can only accurately look at men and women spoken responses to the pictures or stimuli. Time and time again men report significantly lower responses than women and to say that this is purely because of how they were raised isnt a valid excuse for every single occasion. It is scientifically proven that women use the relationship and connections side of the brain much more than men do so they would be much more susceptible to respond to any stimulus

    To sum it up, women are more emotional than men.

  • You Have to Ask?

    Look around you, the fact that woman are more emotional and less logical than men, is evident in almost every aspect of daily life. Ask any man, and he will nod while giving that little laugh. And this is coming from a woman, who has a 'male' brain (INTJ).

    Brain differences, personality type differences (75% of women are F or feeling types, 75% of men are T or thinking types).

    Of course, the women reading this will disagree, and will get angry, yet will not be able to make any logical argument to why this is false.

  • Women have a higher emotional capacity

    Women are just generally able to feel more things at once and still function normally than men. Men are generally very straightforward minded, and are taught by society to act or behave a certain way. Therefore, women get more emotional than men and are also more easily depressed. Thank You!

  • Yes they are

    Because women go through more, how they look, care more about their grades, and when are giving birth are in emotional distress. I think the only point when men are emotional is when they break up with a girl that they like. Overall women are more emotional than men. Women cry more about things that don't matter because they are worried that it will affect the way that people look at them. Lastly it also depends on how you defy emotional.

  • Testosterone or Estrogen?

    I would just like to point out that when women are on their periods, which is stereotypically considered to be their most emotional point, that is the point in their menstrual cycle where their estrogen is lowest, and testosterone highest, making them the most like men. Anyone who thinks women can't make sensible decisions on their periods should also know that men are like that ALL the time, and by that logic never make sound opinions.
    It is true that men and women have different body chemistry, but I would argue tat testosterone causes competitiveness, which is just another kind of illogical thought pattern, as good as an emotion.
    An third point is that frequently, it's 'socially acceptable' for women to express their emotion, whereas in men it's frowned upon. Ideally, men could express emotion without being shamed, and then the misconception of women being generically more emotional would subside.

  • Men are actually more sensitive than women when it comes to all sorts of emotional stimuli

    Scientists asked two groups of volunteers, 15 fathers and 15 mothers, to watch a series of videos while their physiological responses were measured by skin conductance electrodes.

    The content was categorised into four topics: blissful, funny, exciting and heart-warming – and experts were surprised to see that men displayed marginally stronger reactions on average to all of the first three.Even more shocking was the results for the “heart-warming” category, however. The experiment showed that men actually responded twice as much to this content than women.

    While it seems our traditional representations of fathers must be wrong, the experiment did at least suggest they may be inspired by the behaviour of men themselves (or, perhaps, vice versa).

    When asked after taking part to rate how the content made them feel, women on average clearly said they felt more emotional than men – despite the physiological indications to the contrary.

  • "They are not exposed to wider challenges or hurdles in life as men"

    You are going into a more cultural aspect of this, also depending from person to person. Women are exposed to many different challenges in life, not rarely just as or more difficult than some men's. Problems women go through are often dismissed as petty by the opposite sex, though it is not always true. This could be due to the deeply ingrained societal thought that women have it easier than men, which is not true for most women.

  • Men have at least if not more of the same emotional depth and capacity as women.

    The notion that women are more emotional than men is a 20th century phenomena. Prior, in the artistic world, men were considered to be superior artists because they possessed greater emotional focus and depth than women who were deemed too scattered and shallow. As a composer and poet, I work with many fellow musicians, composers, painters and writers; both men and women. In my experience, neither sex has any difference or advantage with regards to innate artistic capacity. Those that doubt or underestimate the male capacity for intense feelings and expression need only listen to a symphony, opera or poem written by a man for clarification. Unfortunately, today most young boys have their emotions beaten out of them and smothered in an effort to manage their behaviour and development. This is a tragedy and does not reflect the natural state of men, nor the way men have interpreted and interacted with the world for hundreds of years.
    And one last point - rightly or wrongly, the number of male professional contemporary composers still vastly exceeds the number of women.

  • Men have stronger emotional reactions.

    So says a 2008 study published in the Scandinavian Journal of Psychology. In the family unit and in society, the woman's role has always been to provide comfort and support by sympathising with the feelings of others, so her feelings are more evident. Men, however, had the role of solving the problems, and could not afford to be sidetracked by their own feelings about the problems, so they are able to ignore them. They are motivated to their often-drastic actions by powerful feelings though - far stronger than what motivates one to sit down and talk about your feelings.

  • No men are more emotional then women.

    Men actually seem to have more insecurity and more emotional upsets them women, they just express it as rage more often then as being upset. The slightest thing can cause them to go into fits and tantrums, while women generally take a while to simmer and then finally boil over.

  • Men just hide their emotions.

    If they cry then they will be considered "weak" "p***y" and "feminine." Data from the Department of Health and Human Services shows that 71% of children killed by one parent were killed by their MOTHERS. Mothers also commit more child physical abuse. Men are just as equally emotional as women.

  • Anger, Rage, Lust

    Emotional does not equal sadness or crying. We forget men have more anger (act illogical from it), lustful, passionate (sports), vengeful and ect. Women tend to cry more, love more, and ect. However, I believe it is more of a social construct. For those throwing evolutionary traits, those can hardly be proven. (Fossils do not show behavioral conduct of animals, so they are more of hypothesis) Behavior and social norms go hand in hand.
