Live Science ^ | Apr 10, 2010 | Robin Nixon

Posted on 04/10/2010 12:31:49 PM PDT by decimon

Most popular notions about the male brain are based on studies of men ages 18 to 22 - undergrads subjecting themselves to experiments for beer money or course credit. But a man's brain varies tremendously over his life span, quickly contradicting the image of the single-minded sex addict that circulates in mainstream consciousness.

From his wandering eye to his desire to mate for life, here's what you need to know about guys' minds.

5. Embraces chain of command

An unstable hierarchy can cause men considerable anxiety, Brizendine said. But an established chain of command, such as that practiced by the military and many work places, reduces testosterone and curbs male aggression, she said.

I wouldn’t believe anything most scientists today say about men. Or women.

6. Must defend turf

“Part of the male job, evolutionarily-speaking, is to defend turf,” Brizendine said. More research is needed in humans but in other male mammals, the “defend my turf” brain area is larger than their female counterparts,’ she said.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I don’t know about the defending part, but they sure like to mark their turf. If there is a perfectly clean house, I will guarantee you a male will go through it leaving a dirty pair of socks on the floor of one room, a half empty drink glass leaving a mark on the table in another, wallet in one room, keys in another room, dirty clothes hanging over the tub, dirty dishes in multiple rooms, and that ever present sign of male occupation - AN EMPTY TOLIET PAPER ROLL!

What hogwash this “study” is.

Don’t these people have better things to do with their time than to put out rubbish like this?

Only one thing they need to know: Men don't guess. Tell men what you want or be a whole lot more obvious with the clues that you leave.

For example, if you want to remind your husband that your anniversary is coming up, say something like, "Well, what do you want to do for our anniversay this coming (insert day, date)?"

And if you want something in particular as an anniversary present, say something like, "This (insert item name) is exactly what I want as an anniversary present." Consider also providing name of shop where it can be purchased.

You must be a youngster.

As you become an old man, it goes:

“thinking about sex, thinking about sex, food, play with the dog, fix something, think about sex, think about sex, food, beer, beer, think about sex, sleep. Wake up, curse how much your bones hurt, wonder if you are still alive, try to figure out where you are, realize you made it to another day, think about sex, repeat.
