Women have a leg up on us guys when it comes to certain things. Here’s a scientifically proven list:
Women are better at parking cars. I know a lot of guys would debate that – but here’s the science behind it. Researchers covertly observed nearly 3,000 drivers in 700 parking lots. The drivers were rated on seven key aspects of car parking – like reversing into a space, going forward into a space, if they had to reposition the car, and their speed. Women scored higher than men in six out of the seven categories. But when the researchers questioned the women – only 18-percent said they thought they were better at parking a car than a man. But ladies, know this: You’re way better. So guys, hand your girlfriend or wife the keys.
What else are women better at? Handling job interview stress. According to research from the University of Western Ontario, while women feel more stress – they handle it better - and perform better during the interview. Why? Because they have better stress-coping skills. For example, they’ll text a loved one for encouragement or prepare more thoroughly. Instead, guys are more likely to ignore their stress, which ends up backfiring.
Another area in which women excel over men? They’re better beer tasters. Why? Because they not only have a better sense of smell and a greater number of taste buds. They’re more likely to be super-tasters, meaning their taste buds are more sensitive to subtle flavors.
One last thing women are better at? Investing. Guys, if you’re wondering who should handle the family budget – it’s your wife. A study done by Barclays Bank found that women are better investors because they take fewer foolish risks with money. They also have more self-control and end up having a higher return on their investments. Men are too volatile, and will try and guess what the market will do instead of sticking with a long-term plan.
