There are a lot of things about the female body that most people just don’t know about. None of this makes one gender better than another, but it is rather intriguing.
Women are able to form stronger, long-lasting emotional attachments to other people versus men.
Women have higher levels of oxytocin, which is also known as the happy hormone. This allows them to from stronger attachments. Their brains are also far more developed in the areas where feelings of emotions, particularly affection, are present.
Women’s ears are a lot more sensitive to sound, even if they happen to have fallen asleep.
Believe it or not, this is an evolutionary trait and the reason women have sensitive hearing is so that if a baby is crying, they’ll wake up right away. Fortunately, a woman’s sleep is only disrupted by high-pitch noises, but this can sometimes lead to sensitivity to sleep disorders, which isn’t a lot of fun.
It turns out that women and men don’t see eye to eye, at least when it comes to the color spectrum.
Color perception is linked directly to the X chromosome, which allows women to distinguish between different shades of color better. So, if you ever play color-based games, you’ll definitely want a woman as your teammate.
Contrary to popular belief, the term cellulite is neither a medical term nor a sign you’re obese.
Only 1 in 40 women develop cellulite in their gluteal-femoral area and it’s actually a sign of maturity. Also, in this instance, fatty tissue is important in the production of hormones, which in women would be estrogen. So when you think about it, cellulite isn’t really the end of the world.
While anxiety can affect both genders, women tend to feel anxiety more frequently.
Women have higher levels of estradiol, cortisol, and progesterone. This causes them to feel anxiety, which isn’t always a bad thing. It actually gives women a stronger intuition when there’s danger nearby.
Female skin is a lot more sensitive to the elements because it’s not as thick or as oily as men’s skin.
Women will find that they have a lower tolerance for ultraviolent radiation, and a lot of things can trigger irritability on their skin like stress, pollution, and nutrition. They’re more prone to dryness and flaking especially when the weather is cold and the humidity is low.
Next time you watch the Olympics, pay close attention to the way women flex their muscles.
The muscular structure in women contains higher levels of elastin than men. The levels also apply to tendons as well. This makes women a whole lot more flexible when it comes to sports and everyday activities.
Studies seem to suggest that women’s taste buds are far more superior to men’s taste buds.
Women are able to figure out the differences in taste because they have more fungiform papillae, which are the taste areas of their mouths and they have more taste buds on their tongues too, which gives them quite an advantage in a taste testing challenge.
When it comes to creativity, women have a huge advantage because of the way their brains are wired.
The brain is a complex network, and like all networks, it has to remain connected in order to work efficiently. But studies have shown that women’s brains have a more efficient network than men, which amps up their creativity.
Don’t believe the hype that men are more rational than women, because it’s quite the opposite.
A wide array of cognitive and general intelligence tests have revealed that women have a thicker brain cortex than men. This means that women are far more rational versus men who have higher brain volumes and are far more emotional.
Women can’t handle their liquor as well as men can because they have less water in their tissues.
The lack of water makes it more difficult for women’s bodies to process alcohol before it gets to the blood. Women also sweat a lot less than guys do, which means that their bodies can’t cool off as fast. Women’s hemoglobin levels are also 12% lower than their counterparts.
You’re aware that women’s taste buds are more intricate than men’s, but it turns out their sense of smell is better too.
In humanity’s humble beginnings, women were the ultimate gatherers, so they relied on their sense of smell in order to pick food for their family to survive. But in today’s modern world, that heightened sense of smell can be used to smell a lovely flower given to them by a significant other.
It’s difficult to hide your true nature from women because they’re experts at reading faces.
From the moment that they’re born, women have the ability to read people’s faces, particularly gestures. They also read the tone of people’s voice too. This gives them a huge advantage when it comes to social interactions because it allows them to be the alpha in a conversation.
Unlike men, women are pros when it comes to juggling several tasks throughout the day.
Psychologists at the University of Glasgow, the University of Leeds, and the University of Hertfordshire conducted a study that put women and men together and had them perform several tasks at the same time. The experiment showed that women are simply better at multitasking.
