When it comes to memories, it seems like women have the superpower to recall all of them. They remember who said what, where their partner left their shirt, and what they ordered at a restaurant 3 months ago. And science has proven that women truly have a better ability to memorize people, places, and emotions. Sometimes it feels like women know everything and they become real lifesavers when someone needs important information.
We suspect that women and men perceive the world slightly differently and this research proved our assumptions to be true. We can’t wait to shed some light on the results of this fascinating study and discuss them with you.
There are cognitive gender differences.
Women joke that their husbands wouldn’t leave the house if it wasn’t for them since they’d fail to find all the clothes they’d need to get ready for work. And research proves that in this case there may be a grain of truth here. Psychologists found that the way men and women remember things is different. Women have better episodic memory that helps them remember people, locations of objects, and conversations they’ve had more clearly.
Women are better with words.
To prove this assumption to be true, researchers from the Karolinska Institute analyzed 617 studies from 1973 to 2013 with over 1.2 million participants in total. They came to the conclusion that women have better cognitive abilities when it comes to remembering verbal information. Women can better recall words, texts, conversations, and movies. They also easily spot out objects and know exactly where certain things are placed.
