MALE versus FEMALE Brain - why we act differently!

This is the funny version..... scroll down to find the real scientific version which explain gender differences in brains...

Some interesting differences between men's and women's brains, collected from sources listed below. Read with a grain of salt, and further investigate the ones that get you riled up.

Men's brains are larger, but as they age, they also shrink faster than women's brains. (Source)

2. Women's brains operate at a higher temperature, due to burning more glucose. (Source)

3. Women use more of their brains when they think. (Source)

4. Men's brains contain roughly 6.5 times the amount of grey matter related to general intelligence as women's brains, while women's brains contain about 10 times as much white matter related to general intelligence as men's. Researchers point to this finding to explain the controversial belief that in general, men may naturally excel at math while women tend to excel in areas like language.

5. Men tend to score an average of 4 to 5 points higher on intelligence tests, as reported by the journal Intelligence in Sept. 2006. Don't believe us? Click here

6. The average man will think about sex as often as once a minute, while the average woman will think of sex much less often, as infrequently as once every one or two days. (Source)

7. Why do women always want to talk? Researchers have found that connecting with another through talking will trigger the pleasure centers in a woman's brain, a high second only to an orgasm. (Source)

8. Baby girls have been observed to typically have stronger reactions than boys to disturbing or distressful sounds. (Source)

9. A 20-second hug will trigger the release of oxytocin in a woman's brain. The effect of this chemical will often give the woman a feeling of trust in the person hugging her. (Source)

10. Many authors and researchers have said that men use fewer words per day than women. Depending on which study you believe (if any), the "word gap" can be anywhere from 1,000 to 10,000 words a day. (Here's an interesting dissection of "word gap" claims at the Language Log.)

In the hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room, where their
family member lay gravely ill. Finally, the doctor came in looking tired
and somber."I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news," he said as he surveyed
the worried faces. "The only hope left for your loved one at this time is
a brain transplant. It's an experimental procedure, very risky but it is
the only hope. Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to
pay for the brain yourselves." The
family members sat silent as they absorbed the news.

After a great length of time, someone asked, "Well, how much does a brain

The doctor quickly responded, "$5,000 for a male brain, and $200 for a
female brain."
The moment turned awkward. Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding
eye contact with the women, but some actually smirked.

A man unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone
wanted to ask, "Why is the male brain so much more?"

The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire

"It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to mark down the price of
the female brains, because they've actually been used."
