Great video content! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you researched - Lammywalness His Happiness Guide (google it)? It is an awesome exclusive guide for understanding what men really want without the normal expense. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my best friend Jordan at last got excellent results with it.

If you don't take it personally and don't lose sleep over a deal you missed or a failure, I dare you to become a successful business person. Look at successful women in high positions in business, almost all act like men, ambitious like men, take failure personally like men, confrontational like men, they stand chin up, stare right into the eye like men. And probably for this very reason, many seem to be unsuccessful in their personal relationships or have very "formal" dialog with their significant other. I wouldn't disagree with the quality of being a woman isn't really in sync with how the world turns today but saying people who don't take things personal become better in business is utter nonsense.

funny how women r supposed to be the ones who feel a stronger attachment yet they r also the ones that initiate 80% of the divorces, the majority for either financial reasons or arbitrary reasons. also, men r emotional when it comes to doing business? has this guy ever worked with a woman? sure, the guy will bang his chest if u tell him what to do. but women scheme and plot against each other.

I wanted to say, I personally think his research is a bit incomplete, at least according to how much he shared with us. He talked about some major differences, but I wonder if those differences in male and female brains, and mental development, has anything to do with social roles and how we raise our boys to be a certain way, vs. our girls to be a certain way. For instance he talked about IQ and he talked about attraction. I personally know smart guys and very nice ones, but it's a combination of intelligence, his character, and his physical looks that make him attractive. I know on the other hand, men might be more attracted to a physically attractive female in their lense.. however I don't think men are too different when it comes to having the combination of beauty, intelligence, and character that would make women attractive. But the way attractiveness in a society is viewed as for a man or a woman, differ according to social constructs and how various societies come to view it. For instance, we know North American Society is a hyper sexualized and Pornified One, could that influence the way men and women see attraction? I find it's important to look at societies, cultures, and religions and see how much they all play a role. Interestingly, in my religion ( Islam), women cover themselves, but interact with the world just like men, aka no difference in their lives. So when a man wants to chose a Muslim woman as his partner, he can see some basic physical attraction in her, but the rest has to come from her character and her intelligence.. I find that very interesting going back to what he said about attraction. These men who's only choice of a partner is a Muslim women, are forced to look at more than just physical attraction. That's just a point I wanted to make as cultures and religions influence us. Also, in terms of the graph he showed, depicting men and women's IQ difference, feel like global sexism and patriarchy that has limited women's expression of her intellect, which is still prominent culturally in North America, could potentially explain the difference in male and female IQ. I kinda wish he could have looked at the influence around us which do grow and shape our brain. And we know, no matter where u go, almost everywhere on earth (as far as my knowledge) men and women are viewed differently, and therefore, have social expectations that differ and even upbringings that may also differ.. I can't help but imagine how this changes the way our brain grow, develop, and ultimately alter our behaviors as both men, and women.

As a Woman I personally don't think that Women are 'nicer.' Anyone that has been raised by a Narcissistic Mum will vouch for that or who has had to put up with bitter, twisted envious friends and sisters. Both genders have their strengths and their weaknesses and human beings are too diverse to simply say that one gender is 'nicer' than the other. Just my opinion.

8:07 The guy the woman wants to be when she ovulates is not the same she wants to be normally. Women are better negotiator as they are nicer? Is this a joke? If women are better negotiators then why are there plans to ban salary negotiations as they discriminate against women? You see the key issue in negotiations is not to reach a compromise, it is to get wat you want. There is no difference on the average IQ as the tests are normed so. Men do remember things, they just remember the important things. The idea that men fear more is nonsense.

Purvi Patel (2 years ago)
interesting talk...don't know how much I actually believe. I think in certain circumstances, men can be more aggressive and in others women can be more aggressive. I see it as men and women complimenting each other's strengths and weaknesses. we need balance and a respect for both in order to have a healthy society. For example, look at india, where there are 1000 men for every 990 women and while this may not seem like a big difference, do remember that India's population is 1.25 billion. The uptick in violence against women has been attributed to this imbalance. I'm sure violence against men was probably the norm in amazonian society (though I haven't studied ancient Greek societies so I can't speak with any authority there). Anyway, my point was that both sexes have their strengths and weaknesses, but that doesn't make one sex superior or inferior to the other.

Funny how so many men are offended by this video. Nothing is more weak and sensitive then a mans ego. Women have been told they are less then( even though they are equal to even better). Finally they decide to stand up for them selves, while also making sure men don't feel excluded. Now a man is finally speaking up about how great women are and men are so offended. Men constantly complain how feminists are easily triggered but once a man sees a women doing better, their weak egos blow up.

Solace Creat (2 years ago)
The issue is that there is undeniably a Western tendency to *deify* women and demonize men, and this man's talk falls exactly in line with that. "Women are so amazing, but men are so aggressive and emotional." More, he goes to an extra effort to console the women or express rationally how their emotional behavior is normal and fine; but doesn't go to the same extent with the males. He effectively goes, "Men, you're aggressive dicks," and acts like they should be completely fine with that, without explaining the instinctual basis and reasoning for that. But, he does explain with the women, over something like ovulating making them more emotional. "Well of course you're more sensitive during that time." Everything he's saying is basically "Women are Goddesses and men are violent, hateful monkeys." This is the Western tendency. Deifying women and demonizing men. And really, men are nicer than women. Everyone should know that. That's why women hate women so much and prefer to be around guys. Because guys are chill. Women are often bitchy and passive aggressive. Am I wrong? This bias towards stroking the female ego (which males have to do, as, like he said, women are the "choosers" when it comes to sex--therefore, men seek to flatter women to become attractive to women.) This bias muddles "facts" and presents bias in the examination of those fact. The brain is highly uncharted territory. We know extremely little about it. So, while you might call something a "fact", we really haven't got a clue on how all the pieces work together. If nothing else, this bias needs to be examined. We care about women. We don't care about men. It shows. Breast cancer awareness receives tremendously more federal funding than prostate cancer, even though they kill around the same amount of people. Breast cancer awareness is also through the fuckin' roof. Did you even know prostate cancer kills as many men as breast cancer does women? Point being, this tendency of the West to deify women and demonize men need be addressed in examining data. Particularly when it's so obvious that the man is pandering to women.

@foog guckle. How do you know to what comments I was referring? Pointing out your belief that someone is a quack is not misogynistic - some of language being used to insult both him and women suggests an attitude. Example from one poster  '.. didn't explain why some women are bitches and destroy each other at times. they don't turn into men.the term "backstabbing cunt"doesn't exist in a vacuum." ' No matter what you believe about him the language used by this poster suggests a dislike of women. I swear all the time, but I generally do not use it to abuse anyone else (I use the word generally because I think I did call my ex-husband a few choice names on a few occasions, of which I am not proud and am sorry). I have always thought that when people use abusive language to insult someone they reveal more about themselves than the person they are insulting.

John Thomson (3 years ago)
@ 7:00 Women are nicer than men because they release more oxytocin? So oxytocin is the basis for morality? Move over Susan Neimann, philosophy has been wasting our time for three thousand years. Correlation is not causality! Women are defined as "nicer" (No explanation why.) and since they the release more oxytocin while doing nice things, therefore oxytocin is a "moral substance" and that explains why women are more moral? It is a closed loop. Moreover, the real moral challenges are not so simple or "feel good" the examples of his testing. @ 9:40 Evolution dictates that because there are males with elevated intelligence, that the other men are condemned to lower intelligence? Is this because the "God of Evolution" knows and adheres to the Law of Averages? Is there logic hidden in there? Causality? It makes no sense, and there is no discussion on the way "intelligence is measured" which likely would offer more insight. He has set up normal to be XX. Not one example gives XY the edge, because his baseline is that XX is the purest form of humanity. He probably learned this from his mom. In the end, you always find what you are looking for. This guy is not objective, he is a pandering schmuck. The diffferences between men and women are way overblown, and his ridiculous graph of the intelligence between the genders is a prime example.

+John Thomson  Your ex wife probably has too much testosterone. The cons of marrying a woman with male traits.
John Thomson (2 years ago)
Anyway, Fix emGold, I will bow out now. Tomorrow I will be going to court. I was the primary caregiver to my daughter for the first eight years of her life. My ex went to the police, and made groundless allegations about me, none of it has stood up in court, and I still only get to see her 4 days a month, despite a bunch of my daughters letters letters asking for 50/50, it hasn't happened... and she is almost 16 yo. To say women are kinder than men has real world implications. And yes, if I were a stay-at -home mother, this could not have happened. Nice that you stopped calling me a "dipshit."
John Thomson (2 years ago)
"To say women are kinder than men is in no way misleading any more than saying men are taller than women. " There are several reasons why this is not equivalent. The unit of measure for height is meters. (unless you live in USA, Liberia, or Myanmar) This is simple, and objective. There is no such measure for "kindness." Kindness is completely subjective... I have over the last two decades asked dozens of people to name as many feminine virtues as they can in 30 seconds. They will spill out dozens. Then ask them to name a masculine virtue--just one--and they are offended at the possibility... We live in a culture that defines virtue as feminine. So to say women are kinder than men does not even need science. We accept it as truth because that is how we are socialized. More importantly, what generalizations are you draw from the statement "men are taller than women?" Now regarding women in traditional care-giving roles. Many of these roles exclude men. Men are not elementary school teachers because society is suspicious of men in this roles, and while "male jobs" have been open to women, "female jobs" are not open to men. There is no such thing as gender equity for men. So that arguement about roles is mute.
Fix emGold (2 years ago)
+John Thomson  This isn't about you or your own subjective experiences with women. To say women are kinder than men is in no way misleading any more than saying men are taller than women. When something is in frequent occurance in one population it is okay to generalize. Kind men? I literally can't picture it. I mean the Santa Claus picture comes into my head but he is a fictional character. Kind is warm hearted tender helping behavior which is usually stereotypical with female maternal personality for a REASON. Phillip Zimbardoos experiments involved BOYS. Individuals with high agreebleness have higher harm aversion and do not engage in harming others even when put in such situations. It's okay to generalize women are kinder than men simply based on the scientific data, volunteering, occupations in health care and all sorts of things combined. I mean this is both a cultural and scientific fact. No one is saying women individually are kinder than every other man, but simply that in the general distribution there are far far more kinder women on average than there are kinder man. And that on average when you randomly meet a female vs a male, the female will have a higher sensitive agreeble mindset over the guy who may appear uncaring and less attentive.
John Thomson (2 years ago)
I didn't get your post "If you don't know..." until after I posted my other response. It is not my response to this post. No, I don't know the methodology, and I am not objecting to the study you posted. I object to the way the speaker of this talk has taken something studied by science out of context, to make politically correct, social engineering statements. It is done primarily to give him "scientific" credibility, and not as a means to inquiry. Moreover, you missed my point. Averages don't really mean much. Most things like "kindness" arrange themselves on a bell curve, and those bell curves are largely overlapping, making the average difference pretty minor. To say women are kinder than men is simply misleading. In my life, men have been more empathic than women, and I have known some pretty ruthless women... and some pretty amazing women as well. The same is true of men. You seem to identify agreeableness with kindness, and I certainly do not. From a philosophical point of view, kindness is very complex. For example, when in a situation of injustice perpetrated by the majority, being agreeable is not kind. See Phillip Zimbardo...

However if we view the talks information without the conclusions drawn one could argue that they stereotype typical women's behavior just as much. The picture of women having to be the one who holds everything together, who has to stay quiet and well behaved. The women who is more or less made to be a mother (oxytocin is key in bonding with one's offspring), and who aren't ever going to be the smartest in the world, because only men can be the greatest geniuses. The truth is it's neither of those things, it's just one professionals observations as to where our current level of understanding is as to how the genetic differences in men and women affect their behavior. Obviously he does take the extra effort to interpret the information for us, which because of the focus on oxytocin happens to paint women more favorable by our modern sensibilities. What I think is important to keep in mind is that the scope is limited, which is a good thing. If he expanded the scope to all the genetic differences in men and women he would have written a two thousand page book that far fewer people would have learned from; even in that scenario he still wouldn't have been able to do justice to the subject, and today's knowledge on the subject isn't even advanced enough to back up that claim. The only issue here is that the title makes people think when clicking on it that they are going to get a complete answer as to how men and women are different. For future notice when one is about to click on a video, if the claim in the title is massive and the length of video is 13 minutes, assume it's an exaggeration.

I see this a an interesting study of biology, my one complaint is that he did not factor in culture and its influence on the development of our chemical biology.
ToshAroundMac (3 years ago)
He also failed to factor-in half of the effects of hormones that were inconvinient to his ''men are bad'' picture. For example, testosterone increase makes men more fair when they bargain. I think we can all agree that fairness is a valuable quality.

Good vs. Evil. Sounds like a legitimate scientific study. I'm sure that his assessment of women as generally good and men as widely bad was based on objective criteria.

Paul Zak badly misrepresented oxytocin and I have a hard time believing he doesn't know this. Goolgle for example "Oxytocin still not the moral molecule". Oxytocin impacts moral behavior but does so in both positive and negative ways with the negative possibly even more prominantly.

i thought it was ok. didn't explain why some women are bitches and destroy each other at times. they don't turn into men.the term "backstabbing cunt"doesn't exist in a vacuum. i woulld have liked to hear what the collective behaviour would be like if the world were all or predominantly women. i wonder what the backstabbing molecule is called.

Gene Holmann (3 years ago)
Its obvious that Paul was very careful what he said about sex differences in front of all these women. If only 3rd wave feminism read the scientific literature on sex differences, then maybe, just maybe, ignorant folks like Gloria Steinem would stop quoting their 1970s feminist philosophy textbooks about how sex differences are a cultural construct.

Better longterm memory my ass. Yes, women have a better verbal memory than men, but certainly not a better spatial one. Women are more likely to forget how to navigate an area they were in a long time ago than men. They're also less likely to remember patterns of things or numbers.

I can't stand feminist stupidity, spitting in the face of intelligent reason, but this video was good. I didn't hear anything bad in it. Why on earth are all the comments so against it? It makes me angry, you sound like the stupid men he we talking about.

+ToshAroundMac This video is from 2011, understanding of oxytocin has improved since then I think.
ToshAroundMac (3 years ago)
Oh, I don't know, it might have something to do with all of its lies and misandry? For example, oxytocin spike in men makes them more competitive, not more caring and friendly. So why is he trying to assing moral values to hormones? The speaker villifies testosterone like the devil. He totally ignores what is inconvinient to his narrative. For example, testosterone makes men more fair when they bargain. Fairness is enhanced by testosterone.

WE see colors differently. Men have a group of 8% completely color blind. Women are .05% (or is it .5%?). WE don't even see the world the same.
Charlotte Fairchild (3 years ago)
Men see the world differently. Men are colorblind much more than women. Don't ask the blind to choose colors!
Thalia I (3 years ago)
That's because color blindness is a recessive X chromosome trait. Biosex females with XX chromosomes need the mutation on both of their xs to be colorblind, while biosex males with XY will color blind if their single X chromosome has the mutation. That means for females, her father and mother have to have the mutation on at least on of their X chromosomes for her to get the mutation. On the other hand, a male only needs his mother to have one mutated X chromosome to be colorblind. In other words: for a female to be colorblind, her father must be colorblind and her mother must be colorblind or a carrier. For a male to be colorblind, his mother must colorblind or a carrier. This makes it much more likely for males to be colorblind. It's not a "men see the world differently" thing.
Charlotte Fairchild (3 years ago)
Really? Or do STEM? That is being address. I know when I was young none of my teachers would teach me math because I was blonde and beautiful. (as a child, ok?) So I failed algebra 1/2 of one semester, and took summer school classes and did all the problems in the book in 6 weeks. I scored higher in math than I did English, and I majored in English. We live in a man's world.

Shadow0013 (7 months ago)
What was said in the video is true. It doesn't villify men. Nor does it villify women. It doesn't villify ANYBODY It shows how F-ed up feminism is. There are significant differences between men and women. For a reason. Both genders required different traits in order to improve their chances of survival. Men needed to be strong to fight off other species, while women needed to be social and fight with numbers against others. The fact that this needs to be explained in today's society, is itself explains how much damage feminism has caused.
