    Do you believe that men are more visual and women emotional in regards to communication?

    Is it the same reason men want to go see the visual action movies and women want to see the chick flicks? Ever use this to your advantage and if so how?

    Yes.  It is the same reason men are attracted to strip clubs.  Women are very much emotional beings.

    No. I've only heard that used as an excuse for why men want to look at porn.

    Women in general are definately more openly emotional, but I wouldn't say that men are more visual when it comes to communication; just a little less interested (this is not an insult to men) and find it hard to express their emotion because society doesn't accept it as well. It is sedated slightly starting at a very young age. Many men believe that if they cry, they will appear less of a man.

    Women watch chick flicks because that is the type of film that they generally are more interested in (hence the title, 'chick flick'). Men tend to be more interested in action films, one reason being, that they are brought up with guns, cars and action figures. Action films can be just as emotional (often more so) than 'chick flicks'.

    My husband enjoys romantic comedies, just not the dramas as much... I'm babbling now huh?

    Generalizations are really tricky. Ultimately, I don't really believe men's emotions are much different from women's. If anything, maybe we deal with it differently. Men get in an argument, maybe even throw some punches, than the next day pat each other on the shoulder, drink some beers, and everything's okay. Men, I think, can say a lot with a little. Women seem to prefer talking things through. Different, but probably emotionally, very similar.

    To me I would think that women are more visual because they see things in a relationship more then the man so they see the action shows to try to visualize why they are seeing more of there own actions, because women always see things more visual then the guys which is sometimes why in a relationship they fight, I have seen it multiple times. So I see why you ask very difficult to talk about; which makes it all the more fun to find out why big_smile I hope this helps, in fact the reason why the women watch a lot of chick flicks is because they are trying to understand the emotions of the chick flicks to there own husband because to me chick flicks are more emotional, but it depends on the human, sense all human are different outside or inside. I hope this helps.

    Leaning toward the visual intake and processing of information is associated with boys and men, and leaning toward favoring auditory processing of it is associated more with girls and women.  However, who favors what type of information intake and processing isn't as simple as just what sex they are, because there are both men and women who "go against" the type of processing that would ordinarily be associated with their own sex.  What can lead to those differences can be a number of things, one of which is said to be heredity.  That part of my answer comes from recent research I did for another purpose (than this question).

    The following part of my answer comes "off the top of my head" (so take it, or not, for what's it worth -which may be nothing):

    I'm not under the impression that the difference in kinds of movies often favored by one sex or the other is about communication.  I think, even if processing of incoming information may play a role, there's more to the movie-preferences thing than just that.  I know at least one guy who once could barely tolerate "chick flicks" and who has seemed to have developed a new appreciation of them in his "old age".  With maturity his life has brought seeing children grow up, but it's also brought a lot of unrelated (and related) stresses.  He now sees the value in the "escape" movie that's "just harmless" (the "chick flick" or even children's movie).  As with a lot of women, he no longer has a lot of tolerance for what's gruesome, violent, or (as he puts it) "brainless action with nothing more to it than that".

    So, I know it's only one guy and one example I'm using here (but I know what "tons" of women say about their preference for "harmless and pleasant" movies), I tend to think that women may either be more mature when it comes to being comfortable with their own emotions earlier, or else, maybe, women start young in having that wish/need to keep violence and "brainless action" out of their minds and find something "harmless" to escape to.

    Absolutely!  We should and must recognize the differences in men and women.  Neither is more "superior" but together they create order in chaos.  Such as:

    Men are generally physically stronger in the upper body for manual labor whereas women are stronger from the waist down for child bearing. 

    Women handle stressors better than men.

    Nearly all color blindness are in men because color is unimportant while hunting and women are naturally the gatherers and need to know colors better to avoid nature's poisons.

    Men look for the ideal woman for being the best mother they can find for their children (legacy of their genes) and women find thier ideal in the emotional and mental attributes in men because they desire safety and security for their children.
