It seems that the time passes differently for men and women, or at least they have a different conception about it. In a study made in 2001, it has been discovered that men tend to overshoot the intervals of times which have passed, and the women tend to undershoot them.
Based on this information, I could say that the men feel that the time goes by faster while women feel that it goes by slower. It seems that women use landmarks or milestones in time in order to identify certain points in time. Men on the other hand are more likely to simply remember the date, the year, and the time when something happened.
When it comes to detecting smell, women have an advantage, and the reason for that is the fact that they have higher estrogen levels. The structure of the nose is the same in both of the sexes, and both of them have the same numbers of receptors. However, the smell activates more regions in the case of the women, and it seems that the women are more gifted than the men from this point of view regardless of their age.
A study was performed, in which a certain number of men were asked to sleep in the same T-shirt for two nights. The researchers then placed the T-shirts into plastic bags and sent them to the women involved in the study, in order to smell them and rate them. What surprised the researchers was the fact that all of them picked the man who had the highest immune system, as being the most attractive one, based on the smell alone.
You might believe that the women often exaggerate when it comes to the way in which they deal with pain, but the reality is that they do not. Women have more nerve receptors, and as a result the pain which they feel is more intense than in the case of men. Women have 34 nerve fibers per square centimeter of facial skin on average, whereas the men have 17. This means that we as men do not feel the pain as intense as they do.
It has been discovered that about 70 percent of the chronic pain sufferers are women. The women are more sensitive to pain, but they are more tolerant as well. Yes, they can take more pain than we as men can. They can take the pain of childbirth, and many others which we as men might not be able to take.
There are big differences between men and women when it comes to the sight. Women have a wider periphery of vision; they can sense the colors better and they have chances of being a tetrachromat. In case you do not know what tetrachromat means, I will explain. A teatrachomat has another type of cone in between the red and green, usually orange. Thanks to this, they are usually able to see about 100 million different colors. Men can not be tetrachromats because they have only one X chromosome, and the second one is required.
The men on the other hand are better at discerning movement and night vision. The men have higher risks of suffering from a color deficiency, and as a result many of them can not distinguish between green and red.8 percent of the men suffer from color deficiency whereas only 0.5 percent of the women suffer from it.
