The Female Brain by Louann Brizendine
The Female Brain

elisawelch22, November 19, 2008

• I was a bit puzzled by the synopsis and review of the Female Brain by Louann Brizenden. I learnt that

• A woman uses about 20,000 words per day while a man uses about 7,000
• A woman remembers fights that a man insists never happened
• A teen girl is so obsessed with her looks and talking on the phone
• Thoughts about sex enter a woman's brain once every couple of days but enter a man's brain about once every minute

Although I believe that there are differences between the female and male’s brain, do they have to be so cliché ??
For example as a teenager, I wasn’t really interested in my looks (hated shopping anyway). And never got near a phone.
In my late teens and later, I was very much droned to men and thought of sex several times a day (enjoyed it several times a day too).
My husband speaks 3 times as much as me and complains about my lack of communication.
Shall I go on?? Does this make me a man?? Husband and friends have never complained about that.
A question comes to mind “ where does she get her statistics from ? what samples of the population? From which countries??
