Why don't women really understand men?
What do you believe the reasons are and what can be done to change that level of understanding or perception?
Because we do not all think alike. Women have different area's in their brain that are stronger while men have other areas in their brain that are stronger as well. It is easier for a women to access her frontal lobe and the critical thinking area. However, this is more difficult for men. For men and women to understand each other, they would both have to learn new methods for thinking.
A brief discussion of why women are increasingly hostile toward men and their opinions of men are increasingly negative and shallow- it is being promoted in the mass market socialization systems: school and film. Examples are listed. read more
I believe the underlying reason for why men and women don't understand one another is their refusal to accept (there are gender differences when it comes to mindset and behavior). Instead of accepting this as fact we hold onto our expectations that the opposite sex will eventually "see the light" and start to think the way we do or at the very least think from (our point of view) when approaching us.
Those men and women who are well read or have taken an interest in having better communication with the opposite sex tend to do better in this area. The vast majority of people however insist their gender is "right" and the problem is with the other side. It's the role of the person communicating to make sure he or she is understood. In order to accomplish that you have to understand not only how the "other half" thinks but how this (individual) thinks. The problem is we want to (simplify) things and say there is only ONE way to approach something, (Our way).
Understand and know yourself and you will be able to understand and know where someone else is coming from. Once it's sane, you'll have an idea and therefore make whatever sense
