Have no fear, this is common, and is due to the way that our genders are programmed to react to stimuli. If you want to know more, I strongly suggest that you read this free 2-page introduction, even if you don’t buy this book. It’s my gift to you to shed some light on the subject of why men and women think and react differently to stimuli.The contents of this entire book will demonstrate as well as give examples of how and why men think the way they do.
This book will help you understand your partner’s point of view towards general problems and conflicts that you two may experience together. In understanding the way your partner thinks, you will be able to better connect with him and strengthen your relationship by minimizing the effects of conflict.
How often do we argue because we feel like we’re not being listened to? This book helps you “be listened to” in addition to helping you better listen to your partner.Ready for a brief summary of the communication gap between men and women?Here goes:How often do you not feel “listened to” in your relationship? All too often both sexes tend to assume that what will satisfy our own desires will also satisfy our partners’ desires. This is not always true, and conflict arises when this presumption is challenged.
Do you remember your last argument? Chances are that it occurred because a rational discussion did not take place. Why not? Your partner might have overlooked how you felt, and simply attempted to get right to solving the problem without acknowledging your emotions.
We both know that in any argument, everyone wants to feel listened to so that we can vent and express our emotions towards the problem at hand, before attempting to resolve the cause of the problem. The start of most arguments occurs not because of disagreement, but simply because of how the disagreement is handled.
Because your partner jumped immediately to solve the source of the problem, he may not have paused to listen to your feelings. This disparity between our ways of dealing with problems comes from our gender differences. Simplified, men want solutions, and women want their problems to be heard. Want proof? Remember how good it felt to just “rant” to your girlfriend for an hour?
Do you remember the last time you tried to rant to your partner only to have him offer his opinion on solving it before even letting you finish your rant?Men and women are entirely different sexes which consistently filter information via different perspectives, causing us to base our reactions to the circumstances in which we find ourselves mainly off of our own frame of thinking, which is partially programmed by gender.
