Psychological Difference # 1 Men Care about the looks of Women
Men give too much attention to how women look. They observe the women very minutely – especially the women they are interested in.
In comparison women don’t care as much. Women possibly do not give so much time and attention about how men look.

Psychological Difference # 2 Women Do Careful Listening
This interesting observation was made by a couple married for more than 25 years. Also both husband and wife have received very high level of education and the husband is a psychologist too. The couple had a common observation that generally men don’t listen carefully to what women say. Though men may pretend that they are listening to every word and keep nodding their heads, but they actually are not paying much attention.
In sharp contrast, women pay way too much attention to what is said by men. Not only that, women are also smart in paying attention to what is not said.
Perhaps there is a message to men to increase the depth of listening and increase their span of attention. Do read for more ideas: How to Improve Your Relationship
Psychological Difference # 3 Smiling for the photographs
Most women can control their smiles very professionally. They will usually give a good smile for a photograph even when they are not happy inside or they are in a group where others are not even close friends or relatives. So they know how to smile or not smile as per the need of the situation.
Whereas men either smile or don’t smile. It depends on the individual’s programming. Even if it is a group photograph of the college or school batch mates, some men may not smile. This is because they are genetically programmed like this.
Psychological Difference # 4 Laughing
If there is something really funny women will laugh only when it is appropriate and it looks decent.
Men can laugh at anything, anytime and anywhere as long as it tickles their funny bone – even if it is a silly joke or not funny at all.
Secondly, women also giggle when sharing something funny whereas men hardly do that. I think this behavior pattern is so common across various cultures that we don’t need a psychologist to confirm it.

Psychological Difference # 5 Cleaning Priorities
When it comes to maintaining and cleaning, men and women have different priorities. Women like to keep their kitchen clean. They can’t tolerate another person in the kitchen who they think will move the things in the kitchen – leave alone creating the mess in the kitchen.
While for men the mess in the kitchen is part of the situation after cooking a meal in the kitchen. They are in no hurry to clean it. According to the psychology of men, it will be done sooner or later by someone.
In sharp contrast, men are psychologically programmed clean their cars. Rather they would like to keep their car shining. Most women don’t want to clean their car or it is not in their priority list.
Women would rather ask you to clean the bottom of your shoes so that the floor or carpet of the house if not spoiled.
Psychological Difference # 6 Problem Solving Approach
Men tend to very scientifically approach the issue. They would isolate the non related issues, identify the main issue or primary issues, secondary issues etc. Then they would get busy in finding various alternative ways to solve the problem. Their third step would be to find the best strategy to solve the issue out of various alternatives available.
Whereas women tend to do the job of finding the solution in a different way and they do it much faster. Yet women do not overlook any aspect or sub issue. Without getting into the complications, women normally come out with an easy and more practical approach.
Men do you want any proof? Well recall your wife’s or mother’s advice that was so wonderful and successful!
Psychological Difference # 7 Basic Components of Behavior
Men’s behavior has two important components and these are facts and logic, while women’s behavior is influenced by their intuition and emotions.
Psychological Difference # 8 Writing Autobiographies
It is believed that men are more eager to write the autobiographies for fame and perhaps to be remembered after they are gone. Compared to this there are fewer number of women who have chosen to create social identity by writing autobiographies.
Psychological Difference # 9 Method of Relaxation
After a stressful or long day, women would typically want to interact with friends or family. Such activities help women relax better and relieve stress.
In sharp contrast, at the end of a busy day, men prefer to shut themselves away from the world for some time. The seek solitude and be left alone or they would like to slip into a passive activity such as watch TV or listen to music. This ‘turn off’ helps men to destress and relax better. This is their way of unwinding.
Psychological Difference # 10 Expectations from love partner
When in love, women love surprises. Women love and care about love letters, candle light dinners, poems, romantic stories, chocolates, greetings cards and flowers. Whereas, a simple ‘I love you’ will work wonders for most men.
