For Real: Women ARE Better Listeners

Michael Gurian: author of Leadership and the Sexes

Good Morning, God!

I admit it, God, I laughed gleefully when I saw photos of the Male Brains at rest. Worse, yet, I called my beloved husband in to look! The Male Brain at rest is basically OFF. I mean, the brain stem was working to support breathing and digestion.  But, that was pretty much ALL that was going on.

Of course, I wouldn’t have laughed except that Female Brains at rest look fairly busy. Also, it turns out that men only use half their brain when listening. Only the left side lights up. Females use both halves for listening. That really does explain a lot, God!

Leadership and the Sexes

Sigh, You made us very different, God. No doubt so that both genders would have to work at understanding the other. Differences + Love do combine to work together to expand our Hearts.

The photos of brain scans were shown in a talk at Google given by Michael Gurian. I would never have heard of him, God, except that Punahou invited him out to talk to teachers and parents about the brain differences between boys and girls. Gurian has two daughters and he wants to do what he can to help schools and businesses make the best use of women’s gifts.

He is doing his part to get the word out.  The science is clear and is consistent in brains all around the world. Gurian has consultants that give presentations to businesses and educational institutions. Once people understand they begin to alter their behaviors.

Here are my favorite points, God.  1) Men need lessons in listening. 2) Women need to be more concise and clearly ask for what they want.
