Most of the time women and men are thought to be totally different, as if they were from different planets! But if we look at it really closely, we can see that men and women have grown up in the same societies although they interact with each other differently. Sometimes females and males have dissimilar interests . For example, when men get-together, they talk about sports all day long, but women talk about new fashions as much as they want . But just by looking at this we can’t stereotype and think that all males think in a different way, and all females think differently .
This is because there are males who communicate fluently with females, with no barriers at all, and there are females who communicate better with males than females! Below, I mention some points that differ in male and female communication methods. One difference between a female and male communication style is that males communicate to give information. They will give facts about a certain topic whereas, females communicate most of the time to bond and maintain their relationships.
Females can go into detail and talk about a topic for hours and hours unless it is something important and, ( about the project their working on, discussing about a business matter)they even share their own experiences. Nevertheless, males don’t like to talk about their personal lives . Another difference between males and females is that males want to WIN at anything they do, but females want to find a WIN-WIN solutions to any problem. So, in other words, males are very competitive, but females are not. If females were competing against other females, they would try find a solution that will make everyone winners.
Another difference between males and females are that males approach in solving problems are very rational. This means that men are able to give sensible and realistic answers to their problems. On the other hand, women’s approach in solving problems are totally different. They use empathy, sympathy, and understanding to solve any problems. This way of solving problems are also effective. Women tends to think emotionally ,so their answers are normally effective in different situations ,but men will always gives answers that would benefit them. Males approach directly to problems .
They would give a straight forward answer when a problem arises. But on the other hand ,females will answer to problems in a more indirect way. They would “beat-around- the bush “, when approaching a problem. Men’s language tends to be about what they think. But women say what they feel. So ,here we can see that men takes decisions from their heads and women think from their hearts ,although, in some situations men think from their hearts too! Well that’s the truth. They tend to be very emotional in relationship problems and family problems. Another difference is that men are very self orientated but women are others orientated.
Men are used to thinking about themselves about them ,them, and them! But women always think about what others feel. They would not say anything to anyone that will hurt their feelings. However, there are women who only thinks about themselves. But that type of women are very hard to find. Usually that type of women tend to be successful business women, athletes, actresses etc. So, people may think that male and female style of communication is very different. However, when we look close they are similar at times and totally different at times.
Women are more open and talk about their problems with everyone specially with women. But men don’t actually see the point why they should tell about their own personal lives to others. If women have problems among themselves, they tend to think that it will affect their whole relationship, but men would just go get a drink and make up the next hour or so! Women wants to bond and maintain their relationships but men build their relationships when working together . Men are more direct , rational, and self oriented and women are more indirect, irrational and others oriented.
Men wants to win at everything they do but women wants to find a win-win situation when working with their own sex. men’s language is what they think but females about how they feel. When looking at these I would like to conclude by saying, we can see that when males and females see differences within themselves and they think it all wrong. On the contrary, they should make those differences an advantage to themselves and try t be more understanding about themselves. Men need to understand how women feel and women need to understand about how males think.
