Good news? You aren’t alone. Women hear what they want to hear too.
Researchers, published in the Hearing Journal , read a list of words to a group of men and women. According to the Daily Mail , that list included so-called “manly” words like “football” and “beer” as well as “lady-like” words “chocolate” and “shopping.”
On average, men recalled more “male” words than “female” and vice versa for women.
