All of those books on how to understand women have nothing about the biological and social facts of the fairer side of humanity. Since men and women both are homo sapiens or say humans but still they have some biological differences due to the difference of their bodies. There are many unanswered questions about women like why they live 2-10 years longer than men among others.
Below are some facts about women that are too true to be believable:
1. Women see more colors.
The reason why green is just green to men but light, pale, dark, hue, saturated green etc. to women.
2. The female body has a lower resistance to alcohol.
Believe it or not, but alcohol is even more dangerous for women as they are more prone to liver disease like hepatitis (an inflammation of the liver) and are more likely to die from liver cirrhosis (a chronic disease). It is also more likely that women will suffer brain damage from alcohol like loss of mental functions and reduced brain size.
3. Maturity is attractive.
And not only because of the Oedipus complex. Various studies have shown that a woman is more attractive the more fertile she looks, so women who have given birth, grown into a very feminine body, or do not use birth control are way more attractive to men.
4. The average woman will eat 4 lb of lipstick in her lifetime.
When you take the average number of lipsticks bought throughout a lifetime and their average wearability, it comes down to women licking off or eating with food about 4 lb of lipstick in their life. That translates to 533.76 lipsticks. That’s a lot of lipsticks to eat…
5. They hate taking risks.
You might have noticed that women are worse risk-takers than men, and there is actually a scientific reason for that. The anterior cingulate cortex, the part of the brain that weighs options when making a decision, is larger in women than in men.
6. They might make their men fat.
Surprisingly, a lot of men in long-term relationships are getting bigger, and that might be the doing of their women. There is also the unconscious intention of making a man less attractive to other females. It does help them being loyal just in case as well.
7. Style over comfort.
This curiosity does not have a scientific explanation — rather a social one. I just personally think it’s the society wanting women to look more beautiful compared to men.
8. A heightened sense of smell.
Just like colors women have a better smelling sense as well.
9. The brain cells are packed more densely in the female brain.
On average, the female brain is 9% smaller than its male counterpart. But this has no effect on cognitive abilities since the cell count is the same and they are just packed densely.
10. Heels were for men.
In the 1600s, heels were brought into women’s fashion to mimic the men who wore heels as a sign of their masculinity and status. It ended up vice versa with women needing them to cover their height with men on an average.
11. Reading Faces.
From the very beginning of their lives, women are better at reading faces, gestures, and voice tones, which makes them superior conversationalists and social leaders. Even in a group of people, all the social interactions would probably be led by an alpha-type female than an alpha male. Even now we know women are more talkative than men.
12. Long live women!
Sometimes the life duration differences between men and women can be up to a decade, but on average it is at least 2–3 years all over the world. And this is not only true for human females. Female orangutans and chimpanzees also outlive their male counterparts.
These were some of the known facts about women, there are many more to be explored and many more that we haven’t discussed here.
