All of those books on how to understand women have nothing on the biological and social facts of the fairer side of humanity. For example, why do they live 2-10 years longer than men worldwide? Come and get to know some amazing little things that have come true about women.
We have looked everywhere to find impressive and controversial facts about women, and this is what we have accomplished. What is the biggest surprise for you?
Interesting Facts About Women
1. Women See More Colors
Have you ever talked to your friend about those white curtains that she said were eggshell or cream? Well, this is because women see on average 20% more differences in colors and shapes.
2. The Female Body Has Less Resistance To Alcohol
Believe it or not, alcohol is even more dangerous for women, as they are more prone to liver diseases like hepatitis (an inflammation of the liver) and more likely to die of liver cirrhosis (a chronic disease). Women are also more likely to suffer brain damage caused by alcohol, such as loss of mental function and reduced brain size.
3. Maturity is Attractive
And not just because of the Oedipus complex. Several studies have shown that a woman is more attractive the more fertile she looks; therefore, women who have given birth, who have grown up in a very feminine body, or who do not use contraceptives are much more attractive to men. Men also read the odor of a woman and the tone of her voice.
4. The Average Woman Eats 4 Lb Of Lipstick In Her Life
When you take the average number of lipsticks purchased over a lifetime and their average usability, it all comes down to women licking or eating about 4 lb of lipstick in a lifetime. This translates to 533.76 lipsticks. Obviously, for some women, that number is very large (or not large enough), so it’s an average, it varies by country and culture.
5. They Hate Taking Risks
You may have noticed that women are worse risk-takers than men, and there really is 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. Some argue that this was the evolutionary way to make women better caregivers and save the “tribe” by gathering food and structuring social life.
6. They Might Make Their Men Fat
Surprisingly, many men in long-term relationships are getting bigger, and this could be the result of their women. They go into”taking care” mode, resulting in overfeeding their partner (with the intention of having a strong “warrior” at their side). There is also an unconscious intention to make a man less attractive to other women.
7. Style Above Comfort
This curiosity has no scientific explanation, but a social one. Society and the media have been pressuring women for centuries to stay to a certain standard, either with little feet or behind, and this makes most women choose a stylish presentation rather than comfort.
8. A Heightened Sense Of Smell
As with the previous argument, the heightened sense of smell helped our ancestors survive, and since women were primarily gatherers, it helped them choose the right foods for the family. So to appeal to that high sense, maybe some flowers?
9. Brain Cells Are Denser In The Female Brain
On average, the female brain is 9% smaller than the male brain. But it does not affect cognitive abilities since the cell count is the same and they are only densely packed.
10. They Are The Unsung Heroes Of The Inventions
Mary Anderson invented the windshield wiper in 1903. In addition, women have patented over the years: disposable diapers, paper bags, non-reflective glass, pedal bucket, dishwasher, and many other innovations.
11. Heels Were For Men
In the 17th century, heels became fashionable for women to imitate men wearing heels as a sign of their masculinity and status.
12. Reading Faces
From the beginning of their lives, women are better at reading faces, gestures, and tones of voice, making them superior in conversations and social leaders. Even in a group of people, all social interactions would likely be directed by an alpha female than an alpha male.
13. Long Live Women!
Sometimes life differences between men and women can be up to a decade, but on average they are at least 2-3 years worldwide. And this is not only true for human women. Orangutan women and chimpanzees also survive men.
Even with everything we know about beautiful ladies, there are still plenty of mysteries to uncover. What are your favorites?
