Men love to talk about the fact that women are unable to think logically. Any woman can easily refute this assertion. So how female logic became a legend, talk about it with admiration or with horror. At the same time, few can articulate what the women's logic, and how does it differ from the logic of men.
What is the logic
Even in antiquity, it was born the science called logic: this discipline studies the right mindset, forms, methods and laws of intellectual cognitive activities. Initially, the logic was a part of philosophy, but over time some types of logic began to be studied as part of mathematics or computer science.
The ability to reason, solve different problems and draw the right conclusions require a person throughout his life. Such logical operations such as classification, identification, proof or disproof used by people constantly, both in solving complex problems and in everyday life. Conventional logic allows you to make the right decisions in a variety of situations.
Specifics of female logic
What is the woman's logic is different from the logic of the ordinary? It is believed that the representatives of the beautiful half of humanity thinks differently than men. Women are not satisfied with dry rational construction, they give these arguments emotional and sensual overtones. In addition, more women than men tend to trust your intuition.
It turns out that female logic in the usual sense of something similar to demagoguery. For example, women give emotions
Emotions and culture: how to decipher the emotional code
much more important than some real items. In addition, the beautiful ladies often do not bother looking for any justification of its findings, explaining everything by intuition.
In fact, what is called female logic - it's just a complete lack of logic, that is clear and unambiguous logical constructs based on real facts and knowledge about the world. And yet, this method also has a right to talk to exist. Interestingly, as a result, no matter what may seem paradoxical logic of constructing women, they may be closer to the truth than the dry and rational reasoning men. However, such is not the case always.
Specific features of the female style of debate can be attributed not always reasonable to simplify and generalize, as well as the transfer of the subject matter of the rational into an emotional field. Most women think and speak not only for myself but also for the opponent (the saying that silence - a sign of consent, certainly come up with a woman).
Why is this happening?
Men and women are known to differ from each other not only in the primary and secondary sexual characteristics, but also the structure of the brain. Of course, the brain is still poorly understood, therefore, too early to say whether these differences are significant. However, we have shown that, for example, when solving logic problems in women more active frontal lobes, which are responsible for feelings and emotion. In men, the same in a similar situation is observed activity of the centers of the brain that are associated with the processing of information.
Women's and men's brain develops a little differently, as a result of women, for example, observation, distinguish more colors, a lot more talk and language skills. In addition, women in the mass, where emotional men. Men also usually better developed spatial imagination and ability to navigate, and abstract thinking. Not surprisingly, the different ways of processing information: both sexes solve the problem as they see it easier and more familiar.
Many researchers believe that the differences of male and female thinking less to do with the physiological characteristics as the traditional roles of men and women in society. For many centuries, no one expected from the manifestations of the mind of women, in contrast, valued minded, but attractive ladies. Perhaps it was due to those who have the role of women was largely limited to the birth of children and the household, there is a possibility to grow intellectually they simply did not have.
Maybe the point is that, given the not very intelligent woman, even the most dim-witted man feels an intellectual. And many women for years pretended stupider than they are to please the beloved. In any case, women have historically been necessary to perfect the art of reasoning, so the fairer sex more often relied on their intuition, which they rarely fails.
Is there a man's logic?
The peculiar argument for women - a favorite subject for jokes among males. For example, there are a lot of jokes about women's logic and stupid blondes. The majority of men are unable to understand the intricate reasoning of their mothers, wives, daughters and acquaintances perceive women's logic as a necessary evil.
At the same time, one can argue that the only argument of the fair sex can be illogical. Men, too, often peculiar reason, confusing cause and effect and making unexpected conclusions. However, in such cases, they say it is the lack of logic, and not about some exotic varieties of it.
Interestingly, the term "male logic" does not exist. Thus, we can conclude that there is a logic accessible to members of either sex is female logic, understandable only to women. Contrary to popular belief, women are quite capable of reasoning "manly", that is logical and consistent. At the same time, men can not normally talk like a woman (though there are exceptions).
One can argue endlessly about what method of reasoning better. Of course, in some areas of human life without the traditional logic is necessary. At the same time, many human discoveries were made intuitively, and intuition - it is an important component of women's logic.
