Here is something from today’s NZ Herald: Why women can’t read maps
Women can’t spot places in a map
“The cliches that women can’t read maps and men can’t see things right under their noses seem to have been explained by science.
Researchers believe the reason the sexes differ is because of their specific roles in evolution.
Men had to hunt and stalk their prey, so became skilled at navigation, while women foraged for food and became good at spotting fruit and nuts close by.”
I, for one, am a woman with a pretty fantastic sense of direction – and am just as likely not to be able to find the thing right under my nose as a man. I think the reason women can find things is because we’re the ones who put them away;-)
