Humans exhibit morphological differences which, while overlapping, tend to subdivide the species into two identifiable groups ("female" and "male"):
Many humans readily identify each other (and themselves) using the dichotomous terms "female" and "male"
- Size (height, weight)
- Shape (curviness)
- External genitalia
Anthropological observations suggest the possibilty that females engage in substantial internal information processing ("thinking") prior to their actions, whiles males may not
- "men tend to have less common sense in atacking
obstacles, they just plow right over then (or off them) to solve the problem. Women tend to think about the obstacle, approach it cautiously, and reason out the best way to
- "females tend to think things through and consider all the consequences/view all options before acting, whereas males tend to
act on their initial thought/reaction. This is why men are usually more direct and agressive than women ..."
- "females tend to think more about what they do and males tend to act on impulse"
Hypothesis to be tested: Females think, males don't
