The battle of the sexes, is it a myth? Male-female psychology!
Male-female psychology differs substantially. Male-female relationships get impacted due to these differences. This has led to what some prefer to call the battle of sexes. During recent history, the relationship between men and women has become tainted with tension, especially after the rise of feminism. According to a Wikipedia entry about male-female psychology:
Sex differences in psychology are differences in the mental functions and behaviors of the sexes and are due to a complex interplay of biological, developmental, and cultural factors. Differences have been found in a variety of fields such as mental health, cognitive abilities, personality, emotion, sexuality, and tendency towards aggression.
This has led me to think about the strange relationship between men and women: is it complementary? Is it characterized by an eternal battle in which no one wins? Who wins? Who loses? Why are they different? Are there any psychological similarities?
