Are Women More Emotional Then Men

Are Women Really More Emotional Than Men? Generally speaking women are seen as the more emotional ones, but all human beings are full of emotions…including men. Both men and women have the same types of emotions but they are expressed in different ways.
When I first read the article I chuckled because I have heard the same things many times before as I am sure most women have. My reaction was not one of anger or frustration because to some extent I agree that women can be more emotional then men. I thought back to my very first boyfriend when I was in high school and when we broke up how distraught I was. I cried and I didn't eat very well. It was like something inside me shut down. I constantly questioned myself, wondering what I had done wrong to make him leave me. I cried and pleaded with him, but was unsuccessful in my attempts because he said I was "too emotional and whiny". I was only 15 at the time and I knew nothing about what love really was or what the emotions were that I was really feeling inside. It seems that for a few of the serious relationships after that it was like I had conditioned myself not to be too emotional around men regardless. If something was bothering me, I didn't cry or try to express how I was feeling because I didn't want to hear the negative feedback that I knew I would receive.
I read an article (although I don't recall the name) that on average, men feel the emotion six times stronger than women do, but if you compare it to our environmental surroundings, you wouldn't necessarily know it. I don't think that men are insensitive; it's just that they are raised to be tougher. When you see a young boy crying and he goes to his father, usually the dad says ‘Suck it up! Take it like a man!' If a girl were to do that they'd be coddled, given a kiss where it hurts, and then tickled or something. The environment and the psychological shaping of the child when he/she is young play into how they express their emotions as an

    I think that men are more vain, even though society wants us to beleive that women are more vain . Men love being in the centre of attention and want women to be attracted to them. They tend to use more and more beauty products like for example a facial scrub ,moisturizing cream or a lip balm, . They make sure that they have a good looking outfit and their hair should be tame all the time. With the rise of the metrosexual man, we're seeing more men getting facials, manicure pedicure, depilation…

    “Dutiful Men and their Emotional Women” In reading the Aeneid I took a particular interest in the relationship that develops between Aeneas and Dido and how this relationship highlights the desires and roles that each gender may have had in this time period. For example it seems the male desire is to seek his kingdom while the female role seems to secure a partner. Dido and Aeneas in Book Four resemble the relationship that we see between Odysseus and Calypso in Book Five of the Odyssey. The…

    Women Get More Depressed than Men In the articles, "Gender differences in depression", and "Why Change the World When You Can have a Prozac Moment?" I found much information to support the stereotype that women get more depressed than men. It seems that for many reasons, "gender differences in depressive disorders are genuine." (Piccinelli and Wilkinson 1) "This is due to the fact that depression, regardless of what other name it has been called or how it has been described, has always been…

    changes over time, and the stereotypes about men and women lag behind. The human history has witnessed great women such as Margaret Thatcher, the first Prime Minister of the UK and Hillary Clinton, the powerful Minister of Foreign Affairs of U.S.A. In fact, men and women have become more equal today; hence, I disagree with the statement “Men and women are, and always will be, different in the way they behave and are treated”. To begin with, men and women have many things in common in their behaviors…
