Human Behavior

  • Jan 2, 2009
The author provides a unique insight on how men
and women behave. In doing so, some over-generalizations
surface. I don't know that the scientific data shows
what the author reports as verifiable truth.

For instance, the following statements are made in the
o gender insight is equivalent to tolerance
o we are conditioned by our experience with partners
o gender differences are accentuated due to intimacy
and having children
o men don't like unsolicited advice ( I would say that it depends. )
o women giving advice to men may foster an unloving response
o men show stress by withdrawal and women by being overwhelmed
o don't disapprove of a man's need to withdraw
o don't guard the cave door waiting for the man to come out
o men must feel needed and women must feel cherished
o always respect your partner's imposed limits

These are just a few of the pearls of wisdom provided
by the author. The book is interesting. I don't know
how much of the contents have been validated in formal
psychological studies either individually or in groups.
