How men and women cooperate


Hmmm….How men and women cooperate…. very interesting.

While “women generally tend to cooperate more, men often try to avoid conflict” and  “subconsciously syncing their emotions with their partners’ during cooperation in an effort to avoid conflict or reach a speedy resolution.”  The study’s author goes onto suggest  “that women may pick up on the fact that their partner’s agreeability is not entirely authentic….he’s not really as positive as he seems, …or has an ulterior motive, she may become less positive herself in an attempt to get at his real feelings and reach a more mutually satisfying resolution.”
