A new study has found that women are more intelligent and more emotionally expressive than men.
The research, led by Dr Rebecca Jones, was published in the journal Personality and Individual Differences.
It examined more than 3,000 personality tests taken over four years and found that the differences between the sexes are significant.
Dr Jones said: “Women are very different from men in many ways.
They’re more empathic, more intuitive, more social, and are less likely to engage in the types of emotional reactions that men are more likely to exhibit.”
Dr Jones, from the University of Southampton, said she was most surprised by the findings.
“Women do not demonstrate any emotional intelligence, but they also have a greater capacity to communicate and think,” she said.
“In my view, there’s a lot of room for improvement in how women are perceived, so there’s no reason why this gender gap should continue to be the case.”
The fact that women have this higher capacity to engage and communicate is really intriguing because it means that we can learn from women how to be better at the job of emotion and communication.
“DrJones said the study was a “first step towards understanding what it means to be emotionally intelligent and how we can use these characteristics to our advantage”.
She said that in the future, more research was needed to determine the relationship between intelligence and emotional intelligence.
The study found that men scored higher on the personality test of empathy, but this was not associated with greater emotional intelligence or emotional expression.
It also found that when it came to the ability to process information and solve problems, women were more intelligent, but men were more expressive.
“It’s possible that women, because they have more emotional intelligence and greater expressive capability, might have greater capacity for empathy and so on.” “
Although the results suggest that women might have a higher emotional intelligence than men in some ways, I don’t know why that’s so,” she added.
“It’s possible that women, because they have more emotional intelligence and greater expressive capability, might have greater capacity for empathy and so on.”
In a follow-up study, researchers examined the cognitive abilities of more than 20,000 people.
They found that both genders were equally good at working out a solution to problems, but women were better at solving problems that required a lot more thought and planning.
However, women scored higher than men on the problem solving ability, but also on emotional intelligence when compared to men.
“The results suggest women might be better able to handle complicated problems than men,” Dr Jones told BBC News.
“But the differences are not so significant that it’s clear that they’re a clear advantage.”
What is emotional intelligence?
The word emotional intelligence is used to describe a person’s ability to express emotion in different ways.
It is a function of the brain and how well the brain’s wiring works.
The difference between men and women’s emotional intelligence Dr Jones explained that emotional intelligence can be used to help people improve their relationships with others, cope with difficult emotions, or to manage stressful events.
Dr Roberts added: “People who have emotional intelligence tend to be very positive and optimistic about their life and have a sense of humour, and they are often very supportive.”
But if someone is highly emotional, they tend to express their anger and their distress more often, and that can lead to problems.
The University’s Professor Roberts added that while emotional intelligence could be useful, it was not a perfect measure of a person. “
If you have a highly emotional person who’s not particularly sociable, they might be very reluctant to communicate,” he said.
The University’s Professor Roberts added that while emotional intelligence could be useful, it was not a perfect measure of a person.
“I think that emotional ability is more like a proxy for personality than it is an absolute measure of intelligence,” he told BBC Radio Melbourne.
“So, when you talk about the emotional intelligence of a child, it’s the capacity that they have to express themselves in a very specific way.”
How intelligence differs between genders and across countries The study looked at the cognitive ability of more and more people from around the world.
“We’re looking at how intelligence affects people’s ability in a range of different situations,” Dr Roberts said.
Dr Robertson said the researchers found that more than a third of the world’s population has a high degree of emotional intelligence – about a 20% score – which is not too different from the average score in other developed countries.
“That’s a very significant difference, and it indicates that people in these other countries are less than optimally adapted to dealing with problems and that’s something we’ve seen in other countries,” he added.
Dr Jason Wright from the Department of Psychology at the University and State University of New South Wales said that if you were to compare the cognitive and emotional abilities of the average person and their child, the child would be about a third less intelligent.
He said: The average person would have around a
