Who wins the battle of the sexes?May 26th, 2009 - 4:36 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 26 (ANI): The battle of the sexes has been going on since the conception of the world. Now, researchers have used science to put the record straight.
Results of many recent studies have shed new light on the answers to some key questions in the age-old battle of the sexes, reports The Mirror.
Women really are worse drivers than men, revealed a computer-based study at the University of London, which claimed that females rely on landmarks to get around and are slower to take in spatial information.
While men are claimed to be better drivers, but it is the women who are better at basic car maintenance.
When it comes to spotting infidelity, men have an upper hand over women. A study by Virginia Commonwealth University found men were right 94 per cent of the time when their other halves were playing away. Women were right only 80 per cent of the time.
Men are actually better at dieting than women, claimed a study, which found that women struggle more to avoid eating, to excess when hungry, while men are better at suppressing their appetites.
Women are better at working in teams and making deals while men are more likely to excel at scheming, back-stabbing and cheating, according to a study conducted at Edinburgh and Lausanne universities.
Women are better at shopping than men, according to researchers at the University of California, which found that women excelled at finding their way around stores and could locate products and remember the location of fruit, vegetables and high calorie treats.
A 2007 report shattered the myth that women can multi-task while men can only concentrate on one thing at a time.
A study by Right Guard said that the average man performs 13.4 roles and keeps up with his partner by doing everything from cleaning to chauffeuring children on top of holding down a full-time job.
In a 2003 poll, 98 per cent of males and 68 per cent of females said men were the best at cracking gags and Prof Christie Davies, from Reading University, said that blokes became better joke tellers because they needed humour as cavemen. (ANI)
