Why Men Need Women

WHAT makes some men miserly and others generous? What motivated Bill Gates, for example, to make more than $28 billion in philanthropic gifts while many of his billionaire peers kept relatively tightfisted control over their personal fortunes?

New evidence reveals a surprising answer. The mere presence of female family members — even infants — can be enough to nudge men in the generous direction.

In a provocative 2007 presentation in San Francisco, the psychologist Roy Baumeister asked, “Is there anything good about men?” (The short answer, if you haven’t read “Demonic Males,” by Dale Peterson and Richard Wrangham, is not much.) But our saving grace, Professor Baumeister argues, is that across a wide range of attributes, “men go to extremes more than women.” Men are responsible for the lion’s share of the worst acts of aggression and selfishness, but they also engage in some of the most extreme acts of helping and generosity.

On this point, the economists James Andreoni at the University of California, San Diego, and Lise Vesterlund at the University of Pittsburgh report evidence that whereas many women prefer to share evenly, “men are more likely to be either perfectly selfish or perfectly selfless.” It may be that meaningful contact with women is one of the forces that tilt men toward greater selflessness.

THE warming effect of women on men has important implications for education and work. In schools, we need to think carefully about how we organize children into groups. In 1971, in the wake of Texas school desegregation, Elliot Aronson, a psychologist at the University of California, Santa Cruz, validated a simple but powerful approach to reducing stereotypes and prejudice.




This is nice and all, but he hasn't met the women I've met yet lol. If I went by them, no one would see a dime from me. But then again, I'm assuming his study didn't stretch across cultures but rather instead focused on his own (perhaps even his own sub-culture). His points on extremism, however, make perfect sense. Women seem to balance men a lot in that respect. I joke with my wife asking how I ever made decisions before she came along. Of course there was my mother, but if I lived alone as I got older, I know there'd be plenty of bad decisions I would've made without a woman on the sidelines guiding me even just a little.

I'm trying to remember if Elliot Aronson was the one who did that experiment back in the day where the kids with blue eyes were the "good" ones and the others were like subhuman, and then reversed the rules so that all the kids understood the pains of discrimination. Too bad psychology isn't the way it was back in the day, nowadays it's all about validating cultural beliefs, finding simple correlational relationships, arguing for modern cultural trends, and doing experiments whose results would be expected and perhaps heavily speculated over afterwards.

Brain Connectivity Study Reveals Striking Differences Between Men and Women

A new brain connectivity study from Penn Medicine published today in the Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences found striking differences in the neural wiring of men and women that's lending credence to some commonly-held beliefs about their behavior.

n one of the largest studies looking at the "connectomes" of the sexes, Ragini Verma, PhD, an associate professor in the department of Radiology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, and colleagues found greater neural connectivity from front to back and within one hemisphere in males, suggesting their brains are structured to facilitate connectivity between perception and coordinated action.

In contrast, in females, the wiring goes between the left and right hemispheres, suggesting that they facilitate communication between the analytical and intuition.

"These maps show us a stark difference--and complementarity--in the architecture of the human brain that helps provide a potential neural basis as to why men excel at certain tasks, and women at others," said Verma.

For instance, on average, men are more likely better at learning and performing a single task at hand, like cycling or navigating directions, whereas women have superior memory and social cognition skills, making them more equipped for multitasking and creating solutions that work for a group. They have a mentalistic approach, so to speak.

Past studies have shown sex differences in the brain, but the neural wiring connecting regions across the whole brain that have been tied to such cognitive skills has never been fully shown in a large population...

There are evolutionary, physiological and practical reasons passionate love is unlikely to endure for long. If we obsessed, endlessly, about our partners and had sex with them multiple times a day — every day — we would not be very productive at work or attentive to our children, our friends or our health. (To quote a line from the 2004 film “Before Sunset,” about two former lovers who chance to meet again after a decade, if passion did not fade, “we would end up doing nothing at all with our lives.” ) Indeed, the condition of being in love has a lot in common with the state of addiction and narcissism; if unabated, it will eventually exact a toll.

WHY, then, is the natural shift from passionate to companionate love often such a letdown? Because, although we may not realize it, we are biologically hard-wired to crave variety. Variety and novelty affect the brain in much the same way that drugs do — that is, they trigger activity that involves the neurotransmitter dopamine, as do pharmacological highs.

Are men as depressed as women?

Yes they are, answers psychotherapist Terrence Real in his book, "I Don't Want to Talk About It: Overcoming the Secret Legacy of Male Depression"

Real depicts male depression as an epidemic rooted in a societal cacophony pressuring boys to bury their feelings in order to fit in.

"The whole point of boyhood is disconnection, severing them from their mothers, severing them from their feelings," Real explained during an eight-city book-tour stop in Seattle yesterday. "The very phrase `Be a man,' means, `Don't feel it.' "

Controversial? Somewhat. His conclusions contradict health statistics that clearly show twice as many women feel the pain and sadness of depression. Real's premise, however, expands the definition of depression to include both pain felt internally, as women are socialized to express it, and pain lashed out externally, the male-dominant expression.

"Depressed women tend to have pain; depressed men tend to have trouble," Real said. "These are two different manifestations of depression. It isn't that women are more depressed than men; it is that women are more overtly depressed than men."

"We tend not to recognize depression in men because the disorder itself is seen as unmanly," Real wrote in the first chapter. "Depression carries, to many, a double stain - the stigma of mental illness and also the stigma of `feminine' emotionality . . . Hidden depression drives several of the problems we think of as typically male: physical illness, alcohol and drug abuse, domestic violence, failures in intimacy, self-sabotage in careers."

Empathy: Women Better Under Stress But Men Worse

When men are stressed they become more self-centred and less able to read the emotions and intentions of others, while under stress women become less self-centred.
 
The effects of stress on women are a surprise finding from a new study published in the journal Psychoneuroendocrinology. (Tomova et al., 2014)
 

The researchers set out with the idea that stress would make everyone more self-centred since, when stressed, we don’t have the cognitive resources to think about others.

One of the study’s authors, Claus Lamm explains:

“Our starting hypothesis was that stressed individuals tend to become more egocentric. Taking a self-centred perspective in fact reduces the emotional/cognitive load. We therefore expected that in the experimental conditions people would be less empathic.”

They were surprised that the results only held true for men, not women, who actually became less self-centred under stress.

Women’s Emotions: Components of Emotional Health

It’s true that female emotional health is, overall, pretty complex. But at the core level, our overall sense of well-being is actually created out of a simple relationship between three complex components: life stress, the brain, and hormones. Today I hope to shed a little light on these three components of emotional health.


1) Life Stress & Experiences:
Research shows that women have much higher rates of life stress than men, overall, including poverty, domestic violence, and caretaking responsibilities¹. We all know the emotional toll that stress can take but did you know that your life experiences also have an impact on your brain chemistry? Male or female, every trauma, loss, or hurt we go through alters the chemistry of the brain so that we literally have a different brain today than we had years, or even a year, ago.


2) The Female Brain:
Your brain is the core of your emotions. This is true for men and women. Emotion originates in the area of the brain called the limbic system and is monitored and regulated by the front of the brain, called the cortex. I did my last internship in neuropsychology, studying the brain, and let me tell you: the brain, in general, is incredible. But the female brain is simply fascinating. Research shows that even as babies females are wired for empathy, hearing others, being heard, observation and reading emotion². In other words, females are born for connection. This makes us want to get to know, nurture, tend, and love others and is arguably one of the best qualities of women overall.


But it’s that same caring nature that can contribute to the higher rates of life stress in women: we simply take on too much and don’t give ourselves a break. When the brain is loaded with stress it begins to look like a seesaw with both ends weighed down. If we continue to load both sides that seesaw will eventually snap! and we will experience depression, anxiety, or just plain burnout. This is called allostatic loading and it happens all the time because we simply don’t do a very good job of taking care of our brains. Understanding the link between life stress and the brain can give us the motivation we need to care for our precious emotional core.


3) Hormones:
Your hormones are directly linked to your brain chemistry. Estrogen is, in fact, a pre-curser to the neurotransmitters, like Seratonin, in your brain that make you feel “well”. Estrogen helps maintain a steady flow of serotonin; too little serotonin leads to depression.

When the menstrual cycle comes along—with an increase in estrogen the first two weeks followed by a drop on day 14, and another drop the week before your period—these shifts in estrogen produce changes in the brain that can create symptoms similar to depression or anxiety³. And some women are more sensitive to shifts in hormones than others.

Men fall in love faster too — perhaps because they are more visual. Men experience love at first sight more regularly; and men fall in love just as often. Indeed, men are just as physiologically passionate. When my colleagues and I have scanned men’s brains (using fMRI), we have found that they show just as much activity as women in neural regions linked with feelings of intense romantic love. Interestingly, in the 2011 sample, I also found that when men fall in love, they are faster to introduce their new partner to friends and parents, more eager to kiss in public, and want to “live together” sooner. Then, when they are settled in, men have more intimate conversations with their wives than women do with their husbands—because women have many of their intimate conversations with their girlfriends. Last, men are just as likely to believe you can stay married to the same person forever (76% of both sexes). And other data show that after a break up, men are 2.5 times more likely to kill themselves.


In the Iliad, Homer called love “magic to make the sanest man go mad.” This brain system lives in both sexes. And I believe we’ll make better partnerships if we embrace the facts: men love — just as powerfully as women.

4 Things Neuroscience Can Teach Us About Love

Despite everything we know about human behavior and relationships, love remains a mystery to us. It causes us the greatest joy and the greatest pain, overwhelms us with inexplicable emotions, and makes us act in completely irrational ways. As if that weren't enough, we often feel we have little say in who becomes the object of our affection. In short, love seems to operate with little rhyme or reason. As Einstein put it, "Gravity cannot be held responsible for people falling in love."

But neuroscientists are coming to a better understanding of the ways romantic and other types of love occur in the brain, which could help us boost our capacity for love and improve our relationships. Research from Yale University published this week found some particularly startling neurological differences between two different varieties of love: romantic and selfless.

"Experientially, romantic love leaves you wanting more -- you want that next date, you want the next tweet, you want that next text -- whereas selfless love is boundless," Judson Brewer, director of research at the Center for Mindfulness and an associate professor at UMass Medical School, told the Huffington Post. "All you need to do is drop into it... It doesn't have that same driving quality to it, where you're strung out on it. It's wide open, it's delicious."

Selfless love makes us happy.


Male and female brains are more similar than they are different but there are some differences in the way romantic love occurs neurologically in men and women...

Brains do it:Lust, Attraction, and Attachment

Did you ever experience the unsettling sense that your sexual desires, romantic longings, and feelings of long-term emotional union were racing down different tracks? And perhaps ask yourself: Which of these is love?

The three tracks may be different brain circuits, says Helen Fisher, an anthro pologist at Rutgers University conducting research on the brain chemistry of the emotions associated with mating, reproduction, and parenting. With classic understatement, she suggests that the three emotional systems— lust, attraction, and attachment—“are some what disconnected in human beings...” But the situation is not hopeless, Fisher argues; the role of the prefrontal cortex in humans is to control and direct these emotions—if we so choose.

“What t’is to love?” Shakespeare asked. Thousands of answers have been offered—but surprisingly few by biologists, including brain scientists. Perhaps at some level scientists share the poet’s conceit that love is ineffable, a human fifth dimension beyond reason’s ken. While scientists regard other complex emotional states such as depression, anxiety, or fear as complex, but not unfathomable, love is relegated to the poets and songsters.

Neglecting the biology of the emotions that direct mating and reproduction, emotions that in our species are sometimes called “love,” has had tragic consequences. Certainly such love can be a joyous state, but it is also capable of producing deeply disturbing, even dangerous results. At least 25 percent of homicides in the United States involve spouses, sexual partners, or sexual rivals. Each year, some one million American women are followed and harassed by rejected lovers; 370,000 men are stalked by former partners; and approximately 1.8 million wives in the United States are beaten by their husbands. In fact, male sexual jealousy is the foremost cause of wife battering in cultures worldwide. Husbands, although to a lesser degree, are physically abused by wives. Men and women in societies everywhere can experience clinical depression when a love relationship fails; and psychologists say that a significant percentage of those who commit suicide do so because they have been rejected by a beloved...

The mind assembles data in novel patterns, so with the emergence of the prefrontal cortex, humans acquired a brain mechanism that enabled them to behave in unique ways—ways qualitatively different from behavior emanating from biology or experience alone. Indeed, given the impressive decision-making power of the prefrontal cortex, this agglomeration of brain tissue is probably the locus of what we term, variously, the self, ego, or psyche.

In other words, I believe that biology and culture—nature and nurture—are but two of the major forces shaping human behavior. The third is our psyche, our capacity for reason, choice, and self-directed action. The three forces always interact, of course. Biology predisposes us to love in general ways. Cultural experiences modify those predispositions, overriding some, accentuating others. Yet each of us assimilates the forces of biology and culture in his own fashion. We are capable of monitoring and at times overriding the power of lust, attraction, attachment, and detachment. We have evidence of that power. Some 75 percent of American men and 85 percent of American women report that they are not adulterous. Half of all Americans marry for life.

In the movie The African Queen, Katherine Hepburn remarks to Humphrey Bogart, “Nature, Mr. Alnutt, is something we were put on this earth to rise above.” As scientists discover more about the interactions among brain systems and brain regions, I predict that they will come to appreciate the pivotal role of the psyche in directing human action. Because of this brain architecture, I think that those in the medical and legal communities will come to be convinced that most men and women have the physiological capacity to refrain from stalking a rejecting partner. Most people can overcome their restlessness in long relationships; and most can say no to adultery and divorce.


So scientists are beginning to answer Shakespeare’s question, “what t’is to love.” This panoply of feelings stems from three primary and primordial circuits in the brain for lust, attraction, and attachment. But this academic knowledge can never destroy the actual satisfaction, craving, or ecstasy of loving. From deep in the emotional furnace of the mind comes chemistry that carries the magic of love...

Love and Fidelity in Premarital Sexuality

Is life-long love in marriage possible? Kevin Kwasnik, grad student and contributing writer for Prolife Propatria, attended Love and Fidelity’s conference in November. Following his experience, he authored this article to reflect on the cultural conditions that make marriage difficult for young adults today. He lists among the difficulties the ever prevalent presence of contraception, lack of commitment, and premarital sex in relationships:

It seems that, more and more, young men and women who desire marriage, as defined in the classical sense, lack the wherewithal to prepare for such a life-long union. Certain social mores that affect preparedness for marriage often remain unchecked and can inevitably perpetuate the cycle of poor preparation and poor marriages. Because of this, it’s probable to think that young adults will find it increasingly difficult to marry successfully.

Thankfully, though, some are taking up the charge to bring such issues to light.

Recently, I had the chance to attend a conference entitled, “Sexuality, Integrity, and the University,” hosted by the Love and Fidelity Network. The commentary offered by leading contemporary thinkers highlighted the issue of sexuality in the pre-marital context.

A central question of the conference was: What has contributed to this lack of capacity in men and women to successfully arrive at a lasting union? One of the keynote speakers, Mark Regnerus, an associate professor of Sociology at the University of Texas in Austin, proposed the following answer: the reduction of commodity and cost in sexual relationships.

The culture of the proverbial “hook-up” is at the heart of the failure of successful marriages. Regnerus noted that women have become less mindful of the cost of engaging in sex. Their awareness has become so diluted that they may have little ground upon which to object to sex outside of a lasting and committed relationship. When on the pill or using other forms of contraception, women may have less fear that their sexual activity will result in negative consequences. It is said, through diminishing this fear, women have mastered their sexuality and have given rise to a new freedom of expression.

Sadly, the data Regnerus offered illustrates something quite contrary to this: those who live the alluring Sex and the City lifestyle are more prone to experience depression. He found, in a sample of various women and men who engaged in sexual relationships, that the number of partners a woman had in a year corresponded to higher rates of depression. According to Regnerus, the only thing that served to mitigate the depression of sexually active women was if they were involved in committed relationships of one year or more.

This same study also reported something greatly different for men. No change in the depression scale whatsoever occurred where men had multiple sex partners. Uncommitted or committed, men remained emotionally indifferent. While this may not be shocking for many, it serves to explain for whom the cost of sex has been reduced. Sadly, while access to sex has greatly increased, women pay the price emotionally. That is, men no longer have to engage in various practices of wooing or establishing commitment before they are allowed access to sex.

Regnerus argues that the corollary of this fall in the cost of sex is that women have allowed the unique commodity of their sexuality to be undermined. They are the individuals that bear future generations and their sexuality speaks to the gift of new life. While new life would not come to be without the help of men, female sexuality is oriented to the gift of new life in a special way. Biologically speaking, women have an intimate relationship to offspring as a nurturing agent. They provide food, shelter, and protection in an intimate synergy of biological functioning. Men get the process going, so to speak, but they do not sustain the process in the same way as women.

The sexual revolution denied this unique value in exchange for a new one: widely accessible sex. But this came with a price: men and women don’t see the value of sex beyond pleasure, or in some cases personal union.

The unique commodity in sexual activity is the counterintuitive point to sexual liberation. Any biological, sexual expression can result in pleasure or personal union. Yet, uncontracepted sex between a man and a woman is the only biological act that creates new life.

Hamza Yusuf of the Zaytuna Institute, during a question and answer session at the conference, implored the gathered university students to remember “the onus is on women to effect change”–that is, women are the solution to wanton sex. When women hold fast to the unique value of their sexuality, they will raise the cost for men to engage in sexual relationships. Otherwise, women will reinforce the low-cost, high-gain mentality of men. Men offer less commitment for access to sex, when not implored to do so, and suffer little emotional damage in the process.

Husband or Wife? The Partner Whose Happiness Matters More For The Marriage

When the wife is happy with a long-term partnership, the husband is happier, no matter how he feels about the marriage.

For marital quality, it seems the wife’s happiness matters more than the husband’s.

The conclusion comes from a new study published in the Journal of Marriage and Family, which looked at the marital satisfaction and happiness of older adults (Carr et al., 2014).

Professor Deborah Carr, the study’s first author said:

“I think it comes down to the fact that when a wife is satisfied with the marriage she tends to do a lot more for her husband, which has a positive effect on his life.

Men tend to be less vocal about their relationships and their level of marital unhappiness might not be translated to their wives.”

Almost 400 couples took part in the research, which asked them how much they argue, get on each other’s nerves, whether they are appreciated by their spouses and how much they feel understood.

Medicating Women’s Feelings


WOMEN are moody. By evolutionary design, we are hard-wired to be sensitive to our environments, empathic to our children’s needs and intuitive of our partners’ intentions. This is basic to our survival and that of our offspring. Some research suggests that women are often better at articulating their feelings than men because as the female brain develops, more capacity is reserved for language, memory, hearing and observing emotions in others.

These are observations rooted in biology, not intended to mesh with any kind of pro- or anti-feminist ideology. But they do have social implications. Women’s emotionality is a sign of health, not disease; it is a source of power. But we are under constant pressure to restrain our emotional lives. We have been taught to apologize for our tears, to suppress our anger and to fear being called hysterical.

The pharmaceutical industry plays on that fear, targeting women in a barrage of advertising on daytime talk shows and in magazines. More Americans are on psychiatric medications than ever before, and in my experience they are staying on them far longer than was ever intended. Sales of antidepressants and antianxiety meds have been booming in the past two decades, and they’ve recently been outpaced by an antipsychotic, Abilify, that is the No. 1 seller among all drugs in the United States, not just psychiatric ones.

As a psychiatrist practicing for 20 years, I must tell you, this is insane...
