Jean Houston, a teacher and philosopher, talks about how living conditions over the past hundreds of thousands of years have affected the development of the male and female brain in really different ways.
In essence, women spent the majority of their time living in communities with other women and children. Men spent most of their time either on their own or with small groups of other men, hunting and gathering.
As a result, the female brain began to develop better ways to emotionally connect with others and the Emotional Brain is now 25 percent larger in women than in men. This means that women can sense very subtle changes in someone’s mood or emotions, and notice slight differences in facial expressions, body language, and tone of voice.
This difference in brain structure accounts for a lot of differences in how men and women function, communicate, and relate.
