Women are ‘more open-minded than men’

London, April 19 (ANI): A new research has indicated that men are more decisive when making a choice whereas women are more open-minded.

A gender gap exists where males tend to leap to judgments and females see more shades of grey, reports the Daily Express.

A study of 113 people asked whether each of 50 objects fitted partially, fully or not at all into certain categories and found women were 23 per cent more likely to select the “partial” one.

The “bones-of-contention” were ones likely to stimulate debate such as “is a tomato a fruit?” or “is paint a tool?”

It has been thought that a male/female split exists but the study said it is the first time it has been shown that men are more likely to leap to black-or-white conclusions.

Psychologist Dr Zachary Estes, of Warwick University, said the women surveyed tended to be “much more nuanced in their responses”. (ANI)
