    Women Less Tolerant of Each Other Than Men Are, Study Finds

    Women less tolerant of each other than men are, study finds


    The research, published in the US journal Psychological Science, found that women formed a negative view of their peers much quicker than men did.

    The team from Emmanuel College in Boston asked male and female college students to rate their room-mates under different scenarios.

    When asked to judge how they would rate their room-mates if they carried out a single fictional act of negative behaviour, after they had been otherwise completely trustworthy, women were far more likely to be critical of them.

    Men, on the other hand, were much more tolerant.

    Women were also more likely to switch to a new room-mate than men were.

    The authors, led by associate professor of psychology Joyce Benenson, concluded that women were harsher on their peers because they expected more from their same-sex relationships than men did.

    They wrote: "Women may simply weight negative information more heavily than men do, because negative information disrupts the establishment of intimacy, which serves a more important function in same-sex relationships for women than for men."

    While the study did not take place in the workplace itself, it would appear to back up previous surveys that have found women prefer to work for a male boss.

    Psychologists investigating such questions could save a great deal of time and effort if they just came to me for the answer. I could have given them the same answer in half a minute of casual reflection!

    Modern social research is a farce.
    "Nothing is more disgusting than the majority: because it consists of a few powerful predecessors, of rogues who adapt themselves, of weak who assimilate themselves, and the masses who imitate without knowing at all what they want." (Johann Wolfgang Goethe)

    I think that women are more jealous than men are.

    Most men admire other men with great accomplishments, wealth, et cetera.

    Whereas many women resent women who are younger, more beautiful, wealthier, et cetera, than they are.

    Very true! As a woman, I find other women are in general very negative to any other female that has any sort of success or luck in life. I often wish women could be more like men in regards to how they treat each other.
    The study's findings don't surprise me in the least!

    I agree that I have encountered jealousy from women when I expected commradery instead. Although it is each individual's responsibility to be mature and gracious toward others, this jealousy that many women have is due to societal pressure for there to be one woman who is prettier than the others. It always boils down to attractiveness, and we've been taught early on that women must be "competitive" in getting male admiration. Don't think the messages were so subtle to every little girl growing up that male attention is the most prized among all things.

    Well suppose that if the findings of that study are correct, there is after all some truth to what is usually termed "my chauvinism".

    I tend to say: "If men fall out with each other they go before the door and punch the living Hel out of each other. When they're done and things have been settled they go back in and have a beer together. But women? They will change sidewalk and tell you: 'See that girl walking on the other side? That used to be my best friend three years ago. But then she became an absolute bitch! Now everytime I see her I have to change sides and then when she's gone go back to where she stood and trample and spit on it.'"

    Perhaps, just perhaps, there's after all some truth, albeit I obviously exaggerated it. The rate at which women oft change their friends, and indeed their best friends is alarming. All the friends that could come into closer contention to rival for best friends are friends I've had for years. In fact I'd go as far as saying that I've only lost one friend in the past three years, and that's only because he repaid comradery with cowardliness and instead of following our well-meant suggestions ran away to Vienna never to be heard or seen again.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    The study does not surprise me, as I have witnessed more conflicts & fights between women at work and school, than I have between men.

    Mad

    Women are forced to be bitchy because Christianised Western society (no need to even mention the East) forces them into the corner where they are punished for having frank, open views and thus they have to revert to such dishonourable behaviour such as gossip and slyness to acheive their goals. This mistreatment of women has been happening so long that its imprinted on their genes and it shows have society can actually affect how human beings behave even before they are conceived.

    Ask any bouncer and he'll likely tell you that women are more likely to initiate and engage in fights/fighting. Granted, clubs are not the best place to study this phenomena, given the sort that frequent these places.

    We also have to keep in mind that much female aggression is emoted in less physical and often subtle ways. ie. Female Social Aggression - talking behind one's back/rumour mongering, shifting allegiance to isolate a person, sleeping with a friend's boyfriend for revenge, etc. An excellent book on this is entitled Odd Girl Out.
