LONDON (AFP) - Men who are accused of never listening by women now have an excuse -- women's voices are more difficult for men to listen to than other men's, a report said.

The Daily Mail, quoting findings published in the specialist magazine

NeuroImage, said researchers at Sheffield university in northern England discovered startling differences in the way the brain responds to male and female sounds.

Men deciphered female voices using the auditory part of the brain that processes music, while male voices engaged a simpler mechanism, it said.

The Mail quoted researcher Michael Hunter as saying, "The female voice is actually more complex than the male voice, due to differences in the size and shape of the vocal cords and larynx between men and women, and also due to women having greater natural 'melody' in their voices.

"This causes a more complex range of sound frequencies than in a male voice."

The findings may help explain why people suffering hallucinations usually hear male voices, the report added, as the brain may find it much harder to conjure up a false female voice accurately than a false male voice.

Well, it has been proven! :D

Okay, first off, PMS isn't the cause of women's bitchiness, it's just an excuse. Secondly, I can believe the article above, but I also think it's partly the men not wanting to listen to the women, which just leads to us talking more and nagging more, which, taking me to the third point you mentioned, is why we never shut the fuck up. If you'd listen the first time maybe we wouldn't need to keep going.

So you guys could really just sit around and listen to only yourselves talk for the rest of your lives? That's pretty sad.

this is wrong.

Premenstrual Syndrome: PMS is a disorder characterized by a set of hormonal changes that trigger disruptive symptoms in a significant number of women for up to two weeks prior to menstruation. Of the estimated 40 million suffers, more than 5 million require medical treatment for marked mood and behavioral changes. Often symptoms tend to taper off with menstruation and women remain symptom-free until the two weeks or so prior to the next menstrual period. These regularly recurring symptoms from ovulation until menses typify PMS, premenstrual syndrome.
that article is shit. i dont believe any of it.

Well, no...but we would only want you to talk when we wanted you to talk, but you would only be able to talk about the things we wanted you to talk about and for a short period of time...unless we wanted something different...
But it would also get old having to tell you when to do all of these things, so you would have to just 'know' what we wanted and when we wanted it, unless of course we didn't want you to know for a certain amount of time...at which point you would just revert back to normal behavior until we were tired of it, which you would also be inherently aware of without us having to tell you...unless we wanted to tell you. See?

C'mon, girls...don't tell me you haven't thought about the same kinda thing for us guys as well..LOL
:cool:

No, really...we like you the way you are, as crazy as it drives us :)

So they are saying that a man's brain isn't complex enough to hear a woman voice correctly?

Exactly! The article basically states that you men only can understand simple sounds. Simple sounds = male voices. Simple part of the male brain engaged = simple minded. That says a lot. I guess that's why us women tend to understand a lot more and don't need a lot explained to us. We are more complex. Well I might as well give up hope. You men just can't understand the complexities in life. No wonder you need a second brain to think for you. :rolleyes:

Actually it says that it is just harder to decipher women’s voices, so please bitch that were lazy. If you ever hear girls talk to each as soon as there are more then two, nobody fucking listens to each other anyway. It's as simple as most women think what will make things FEEL better, men are more what can be done to MAKE things better. No one is right or wrong both are fair approaches. But men don't like talking and beating subjects to death. They talk to stop talking, to find a resolution.

IMO it also has to do with the way men and women's brains are wired. It's long been accepted that Women are far better at Multi-tasking than men. Therefore it stands to reason that if a man is not paying full attention to a woman when she speaks, he has a good chance of missing a lot of what she's saying.

So guys, when your woman speaks, Drop everything, and focus on her. ;)
