With communication as key in our everyday lives, sometimes engaging in conversations may be easier with certain people over others.  While interacting with another individual, there needs to be a meeting of the brain waves between the connecting parties to converse and be able to carry a discussion on a level with understanding.

Obviously there can be language barriers in reading each other which may be a problem in exchanging or communicating one’s thoughts.  Certain topics or discussions, however, may not be favored to some.  There may even be some limiting factors or interests that can also prevent the brain waves to connect with mutual understanding.   A common communication difference, however, are gender brain waves.

I have been asked a few times for my thoughts or opinions in helping others in certain relationships as to what I would do if I were in their shoes.  Of course, I am speaking from a woman’s point of view, and can only imagine how valid my thoughts, ideas or counsel would be for a man.  For that, I would defer to a man of wise counsel.

Then there comes the phrase of being left-brain or right-brain.  It is my understanding that men are usually more left-brain, being more so likely technical or logical.  Women on the other hand, more typically tend to be more right-brain, where the senses are more dominating with emotions or feelings.  The complexity of the brain cannot be fully understood except only by the One who is the Master Creator.

One comment that stays in mind was that some women are like goldfish.  They just keep on swimming but have a difficult time letting go of what ought to be considered as waste.  Being a woman, I can relate to that statement and perhaps mentioning it here exemplifies that comment as one to remember.

Gender brain waves is fascinating,  and I see this video is one to be amused with these differences.

  1. Hi Nelly,

    I think you’re on to something with this post. The video is hilarious and so true. LOL! Many thanks for sharing.

    I’ll admit to getting my hackles raised when the gender differences argument comes up. The issue of nature versus nurture comes up almost immediately; how much of the differences are hardwired, and how many are learned? I don’t think many people can deny that there IS a gender difference, but the origin of it is something that deserves consideration before we start making hard statements like “women are like goldfish.”

    It’s also worth noting that men and women CAN learn one another’s “languages” with a modicum of effort. Understanding is possible if we’re willing and patient enough to stretch our boundaries a bit. We’re not actually all that different.

    hey Nelly,

    This video cracked me up!
    I actually read a book about how the men and women brain is wired differently causing a complete difference between how they process information.

    great share!

    Hi Ellie,
    Thanks for your thoughts and comments here. Although this is a topic where there is much interest to understand, the complexity of how we are made includes the chemistry factors mixing unique personalities. Of course, listening to varying views and statements that have been drawn is in itself an example of different perspectives here.

    Hi Akos,
    Thanks for stopping by and glad you enjoyed it too. There certainly are differences between the two and in actually recognizing certain scenarios actually brings humorous identifying reflections.
    Aloha to you!
